I'm an open-minded and optimistic person. Over the years I have developed a lot of my own teaching materials. I'm very flexible in the way I teach and I always try to find out what type of learners my students are so that I can design a personalized practice plan. The best musicians are not always the best teachers and the cheapest teachers are rarely the best teachers.
All students are individual and everyone learns in their own unique way. I use multiple methods of teaching (linguistic, visual, auditory) to reach students, so that no one is left behind. I also try to expose students to different types of music to keep them motivated.
Getting a sense of your experience and aspirations is helpful for me. This way I can encourage you to be inspired in what you wish to do on your musical journey. A typical lesson would include exercises, rhythm training, practicing chords and/or scales, and working on the current topic of interest.
I teach beginner/intermediate guitarists/vocalists. For beginner guitarists/vocalists, lessons start with learning correct posture/ergonomics, along with basic musical fundamentals (tempo,pitch,rhythm, etc.). Besides first lesson basics, I make accommodations and lesson plans around where students wish to take the musical journey! I also teach Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced Songwriters.
My teaching lessons are based upon the individual or individual's understanding of certain topics in Music. If there is no understanding, I'll start from the ground up. I can teach beginner-advanced level guitar, and being 21, my audience could be anyone young or old looking to learn more about the guitar.
I cater to the artform that an individual cares for. I know that it's not all about me and what I like to play, as much as bringing said individual to the next level. Each genre and style has a path of growth, and I know what lessons will compliment a given style.
I base my lessons on the individual student. If the student wants to know minimal music theory to get by or none at all;I don't force them to learn the theory. Same thing goes for reading music, it is a great skill to have but if the student just wants to learn how to play, that's what I teach them.
My teaching method varies from student to student, and can include varying amounts of music theory, performance theory, or just plain old learning song by song if that is what the student wishes. My goal is to inspire confidence and proficiency.
My name is Chris and I've been playing music for most of my life. The best lesson that I've personally learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument then you've stopped growing musically.
My name is Connor, I've been learning and playing guitar since 2009. I began my studies with private lessons from local rock/jazz guitarist Joe Wagner. His method of teaching catered to the songs and type of genres his students wanted to know. Since I was passionate about Led Zeppelin, he taught me "Heartbreaker" my first lesson.
I have only taught guitar to mentally disabled adults in my teaching history so I try to lay out the basics of the instrument in simple, easy-to-understand terms. I would begin by teaching my students simple chords and how to read guitar tabs. After each lesson, I would give them a simple scale, riff or lick (possibly a full song) to learn that includes the techniques that we covered in-lesson.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching students of all ages because I can relate to students who are learning and trying to progress in their instrument as I can remember being in their position when I started learning music. Seeing students progress and improve as a result of helping them, I find to be one of the most rewarding aspects for me personally.
As an experienced guitar instructor, I endeavor to make guitar lessons fun, practical and productive!!! Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, advanced, a musically frustrated novice or even a professional level musician needing to deepen their musical knowledge, I can help you! I teach on both electric and acoustic guitar.
My goal as a teacher has always been to encourage and provide the understanding for my students to discover their own uniqueness as a musician. I focus primarily on music theory and technique development; I found it very important in order to remember what is learned it must taught through a musical context i.e. songs, etudes... etc.
I love the guitar and music in general. I try to help my students do the same by introducing them to the basics of the instrument while at the same time showing them fun ways to use those basics as fast as possible. I try not to focus to much on mundane technique instruction and instead try to teach what is required by making it practical and useful to the student at the level they are at.
I'm Mike Ellis. I teach all levels. Note reading is not required. BEGINNERS: After getting to know the student some, I get into the parts of the guitar and how strings make different notes in different frets. He shows them the way to hold the guitar and how to press strings against the fretboard.
I go to the student's place most of the time, try to match with the students desires and hobbies. My approach is simple methodology, always bringing fun, and never pushing too hard in the theory, unless hardly required by the student or parents.
My teaching method begins with basic chords and rhythm, moving into scales and sight reading later on. We will then work through different genres and styles of music in order to further the student's understanding of the differences between these styles.
I like to see my students develop a passion for music. I know many people want to get better at music but has absolutely no idea where to start. I specialize in teaching you how to be good enough to eventually start teaching yourself how to play the guitar. I am able to teach all genre of music.
I teach all skill levels and ages, so my approach to each student is very structured but tailored to the students skill level and individual interests. I have written two guitar method books "(Foundations for Guitar" and "Expanded Blues Guitar") and I publish a weekly video lesson blog via YouTube and my own website MarkWein.com.
Part of why it is fun to learn guitar with a private instructor, is that you can learn whatever you want to learn at any given time.
Since 2014, I have worked as a private guitar teacher, providing guitar lessons to students of all ages and abilities.
Teaching Methodology? Now I need a nap just for typing methodology. I want it to be fun. If you're not having fun, then why are you doing it? I'm fast. I'm funny. You laugh. You learn. Sign on the star kid, and I'll make you a dotted line.
My teaching method is completely student-centered. I teach each individual student what and how they would like to play. I use my various knowledge and experience of music and formulate a lesson plan that suits the student's particular goals, learning style, and personality.
I have taught privately and through music schools for several years and have taught students of all ages and levels. I believe that everyone is capable of learning at least the basics of music to accomplish what they want from musical instruction.
I create a custom plan, curriculum based on each individual students goals. I work hard to get you to your goal as quickly as possible. I customize each lesson for each student, I am easy going, fun to work with and know what I am talking about.
I believe that the best way to teach is by student engaged and motivated. I teach my students the music they want to learn while teaching them other aspects of music in parallel. I would usually teach a student a song and then teach him the major scale and make him connect the theoretical content to the music.
I cater to what my student's interests are and am happy to take suggestions for material they'd like to learn in lessons. At the same time, I feel it's my responsibility to draw from my background as a music professional and show the student material they may be unaware of.
Associate of Applied Science in Guitar Performance from the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma. I try to instruct the student in a way that fosters exploration of music and the guitar. I teach music theory as well as playing skills.
I will teach you the basic chords and scales needed to enjoy playing rock and blues style guitar. On top of this I will teach you the theory behind the music to help you gain a greater understanding and be more ready to learn and improve on your own.
