Lesson Details

Blues Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hello! I have been teaching guitar for over 7 years now. Form beginners to advanced students I make it my duty to find the students interests and help them develop their own sound. As a Berklee College of Music graduate I have studied composition and music production, skills that I am happy to teach any student. In addition to teaching guitar my students have the option to learn music theory, as well as recording and mixing original compositions that we develop together in class and as homework assignments (DAWs - Logic & Protools). My specialities include Blues, Classic Rock, Jazz & electronic beat production.

Teaching since:
2012

I have been playing guitar, piano, bass, ukulele and drums for 11 years now (teaching for 7 years - Acoustic & Electric). As a child I started playing pop music, then I became obsessed with classic rock music (Guns & Roses, Iron Maiden, ACDC, etc). Soon after I started playing a lot of Modern Rock and Metal music. Then in my 20's I started to play blues and jazz as a means to learn advanced concepts in music and fell in love with the guitar all over again. At the age of 21 I went to Berklee College of Music where I studied composition and music production for four years.
I am confident that I have the skills and resources to teach anyone from a beginner to an advanced musician.

He was patient and amazing at the art of teaching. He knew how to teach guitar at grassroot level basics and it was awesome that a person with that level of skill was so good at teaching a beginner.
