The are four basic levels to which I try to develop students' ability. In the beginning, I focus on getting students comfortable with the instrument, showing them some songs they'll have fun with, and developing the dexterity in their hands. You'll get a huge amount of help from in learning songs as I'll give you sheet music, play along with you, and basically talk you through being able to play the song.
Once you're comfortable learning songs with that amount of help, I'll start giving you sheet music and having you take it home and practice, and then go over questions or problems you may have the next week.
When you're able to teach yourself songs from sheet music, then I'll start giving you some easy songs to try to learn by ear. I'll give you some hints in the beginning about what chords are used, or what key the song is in, but eventually I'll take the training wheels off and throw you in the pool, so to speak, and make you learn the songs by ear, and then tell you if you ...
I've been playing the guitar for twenty-six years now, and I've been working as a guitar teacher for the last twenty years. I've been making a living as a guitar teacher in the Boston area for fourteen years now, and I teach in two locations - Brighton and Dedham. Prior to that I also taught at Guitar Attention Center in Springfield, Ohio while I was in college, where I graduated with honors at Wright State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications. I've also played in a variety of original and cover bands, and have written a number of songs of my own. I'm working on recording these as instrumentals in my home studio. I also play in a rock cover band called Element 78. We play out every weekend, and even on some Sundays. The singer and I have also started doing some
I am one of those individuals for whom teaching is just something that I have to do. I started giving music lessons sometime in the 80âs and have loved working with all levels of skill and experience. My students say that I am patient, adaptive and encouraging, committed to making music fun. I have a Masters of Music from New England Conservatory in Jazz Piano and am comfortable and fluent in a number of musical styles, including pop, rock, gospel, traditional hymnody, jazz, and R&B. Although I love and study classical music, it is not something I teach at this point.

Having served as a church musician for more than 30 years, I currently co-lead ...

The guitar is a fantastic and extremely popular instrument. Many people can pick up a guitar and play a few chords, or sing one song. I strong urge guitarist who come to me to be interested in learning the musician aspects of the guitar as well. Most people who learn to play an instrument have to learn theory, scales, and harmony as well. On the guitar you do not have to learn these things to be able to "play" the instrument but I urge people to because that will show in the music you make.
Welcome! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, song writer, and experienced music teacher. I began learning music when I was nine on the piano however by the time I turned twelve I discovered my passion for the guitar. I began by learning songs and playing in band with some of my school friends. This was the start of my journey into music. I started with blues, rock, and pop music but I quickly moved into more complex genres such as funk and Jazz music. In college I began my studies of the historically endless and huge world of classical music. This is also when I began teaching and taking students of guitar. I studied classical music at Hofstra University and completed my degree at Humboldt State University in Northern California. After earning my degree I began ...
