Learning to play the guitar includes tuning, technique, theory and the willingness to practice. Beginning students learn to play treble clef musical notation, rhythm and chords. As the student advances, the music becomes more intricate and tablature is introduced as a form of reading guitar music. As the student feels comfortable, the guitar solo is introduced. The student will be introduced to key signatures and learn the primary chords for each key.
With guitar, I cover all the basics: chords, scales, reading tab or standard notation (or both), and playing that song you wished you knew how to play.
My method book is flexible, and I generally incorporate as many known songs as possible to encourage students' desire to practice.
Once the basics are down, we can move on to advanced techniques like harmonics, tapping, alternate tunings, and more. I can also help students trying to learn advance instruments like 7 or 8 string guitars.
I have an extensive background in theory and use it to help students understand the basics of songwriting as well as the basics of improvising lead lines over chords another guitarist is playing.
Students are taught in a friendly and relaxed manner.
We go at the students pace but I also try to push the ability to the next level.
And most important we learn what the student wants to learn.
