I am a natural teacher blessed with patience, empathy, understanding and enthusiasm. In fact my day job is teaching! I can help you overcome barriers in playing guitar such as getting a good sound, getting your hands to cooperate, reading music, and learning songs. I have 3 years experience in teaching private lessons, and I actively perform in Sacramento. I received my BA in Music from UC San Diego with an emphasis in Jazz Studies.
*** Lesson Details ***
I want to make a lesson plan customized to your needs. I am a patient teacher, but I am passionate about music and I hope to inspire you to learn and practice. I can teach a variety of styles such as classical, folk, pop, jazz, and rock. The lessons are a lot of fun for the student and myself. For learning songs I use the source material- the recording. I can write a chord chart for songs that students want to learn. For learning to read music I use a variety of guitar method books.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Electric guitars (hollow and solid body), Acoustic guitars (steel and nylon strings), electric bass, amplifiers, music stand, computer with recording interface, music books
*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide an amp, guitar cable, and a music stand. I expect the student to provide their own guitar and an open mind.
*** Specialties ***
Tyler does an amazing job with my 8 year old daughter. He is always very positive, encouraging, patient and kind. The best part is that she is motivated to learn and I couldn't ask for more.
