Avatar of the tutor
Ryan S.
Culver City, California
Experienced guitar teacher of 7 years! My lesson plan is simple: I incorporate a wide variety of guitar-method books + use my favorite material from each of them. I take the time to get to know the student...what kind of music he/she likes... what genre they're into. Deconstructing songs (chords, strum-patterns, etc) is always recommended, as well as delving into multiple styles + genres. I often incorporate backing tracks as the student is playing to emphasize rhythm + timing. The time devoted to each portion of the lesson is totally adjustable. You will learn what you want to learn at your own pace.
