I am a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County with a B.A. in Music, emphasis in Performance and Musicology. I work very well with young children and especially love to work with beginning guitarists of all ages.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who enjoys cultivating my students' love for guitar and music by introducing them to a variety of styles including classical, blues, and pop. In lessons, I introduce beginning students to basic music theory, reading music notation, scales, chords, and of course, individual pieces of the student's own choosing. My goal is for each student to have a solid understanding of basic music concepts and to have fun learning, playing, and appreciating the guitar.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Chairs, music stand if possible. Parents are more than welcome to sit in on lessons or stay in the same room.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my student to provide their own guitar, and if they are taking electric guitar lessons, an amplifier. I will provide my own guitar, and if need be, a music stand and guitar pieces to learn from. Most of the time I expect students to obtain their own copies of music scores if they are interested in learning a specific piece that I do not have on file.
*** Specialties ***
I have studied electric guitar including rock, pop, and blues genres; as well as classical guitar including a specific interest in works from the Romantic era including pieces by Tarrega, Barrios, as well as pieces by Villa-Lobos, Bach, and Dowland.
