Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My lessons structured around 2 things:
-Improving your instrumental skills (technique, fingerboard knowledge)
-Growing in your musicianship (establish the ability to study guitar & music independently, ear training, learning songs, music theory, harmony, and grooves)

To help you achieve those, I will offer:
-clear and impartial analysis and advice
-easy to understand *materials in PDFs (scale exercises, chords, voicing shapes and concepts, harmony and rhythm materials, harmony practice sheets, lead sheets, songs for you to listen to, and more)

Those materials will help you visualize:
-Scales & Arpeggios
-Chords, Other voicings and substitutions

we’ll also work on:
-Learning songs
-Hearing and analyzing lines and harmony changes
-Transcribing
-Establishing a solid time feel and rhythmic feel

In the first class, we’ll take some time to figure out your specific needs, and come up with a plan to help you meet them.

About Roger L.

I’m Roger, a Brooklyn based guitarist. I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music, where I studied guitar performance and jazz composition. I’ve got 25 years of experience studying and playing music of all kinds, from classical to pop, to rock, to jazz, on both piano and guitar.

I had been through those difficulties myself. By overcoming recurring obstacles, I realize that learning music is in fact a journey with endless discoverings. Through listening, practicing and studying we discover more diverse and stylistic choices available on the instrument. Eventually, accumulating those discoveries, we hope to freely and genuinely express ourselves through the instrument, and learn to appreciate music and art on a deeper level.

I want to help my students build the ability to self teach on this journey, so that they craft from not only the materials I share, but also from their own discovery.
