Hi, there! My name is Rudy and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since December 2014 and have loved helping my students to be creative: to improve their voices and their techniques as well as break down fears to achieve their own personal truth. I went to Nyack College for Vocal Performance & Piano, completed most of music program but decided to switch majors and minors to earned a BS degree in Business in 2013.
I encourage self exploration and work to get the student to create music and be happy. My teaching style is different but designed specifically for that student. I always make the lessons fun and constructive. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
Started teaching absolute beginner guitar in the Summer of 2014, late May. It has been rewarding to help others discover music in themselves.
I teach the proper way to hold the guitar. The parts of the guitar.
I teach how to make chords using a simple method as well changing between chords with the anchor finger/rest technique.
I teach basic rhythm guitar and get people playing their first songs.
