My teaching philosophy is simple: Pay attention to the student...Attend to what they want to learn...Prepare lessons that definitely challenge them, but are tailored the THEIR needs...Make it clear that you have an interest in their happiness and enjoyment, not just your employment.
I like to teach students using visual and physical methods. I encourage muscular exercises to increase flexibility and practice exercises that improve one's ability to read music. I have many beginner and intermediate level pieces for my students to practice based on what type of music they are interested in. I like to encourage students to expand their abilities and practice daily.
I have created to own and operate the East Village Guitar Salon, in New York City. My Salon specializes in lessons for the classical guitar and improvisational guitar art like jazz and free-form. I also offer study classes in Museo-Ontology, a subject based upon my book, "Exerciricle: Keys to Museo-Ontology". My teaching style is compatible for the dedicated student.
I am Robert 'Skinny Bob' Barney. I teach several styles. Focus on technique, scales, chords, rhythm, and lead. Minor in classical guitar and use that for basis. Approach according to student's particular interest.
I graduated Berklee College of Music (summa cum laude) - guitar performance. During my studies at Berklee every semester I earned placement at Dean's List and 10 March 2016 I also received John LaPorta Award for outstanding achievement in my major.
Just like my profile photo indicates, my name is Scott and I am a degreed guitar performer, composer and a singer/songwriter who's played various styles and types of guitars for 25+ years. I offer private guitar lessons to beginners and some intermediate level players between grades 2-8. Lessons are customized to meet the needs of each student.
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 develop each student's curriculum based on their unique goals. I always encourage an interdisciplinary course of study, as I've found that cross-training is the best way to improve as a musician. I am able to teach rock, metal, blues, funk, jazz, classical and everything in between. Additionally I can teach transcribing, composition and improvisation.
My name is Christian Thornton! I am 18 years old, I have graduated high school(4.
I believe music should be fun and educational. I joke around to keep the mood light when the music gets difficult. Music is my passion and I enjoy having the privilege to share my years of knowledge in theory and performance with others.
I teach music reading and can teach all ages and skill levels. I primarily use method books but also use outside materials for enhanced learning. I have a Master's in Guitar Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and can teach guitar to children, all levels of classical guitar, and beginning acoustic guitar.
I would approach each lesson with an open mind and ear, attuned to the present needs of the student. Preferably, I would balance time between elaborating upon the theory and practice of playing guitar as well as allowing for requests to learn certain songs/general questions and concerns.
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.
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.
Practicing is the key and theory knowing how to read music is the key To learn
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.
I approach each topic by seeing how much they know and using that to build a way that I feel would help them obtain the material the best. If we're starting from scratch that's perfect too because they won't know any "wrong" material making it somewhat easier to teach.
Through my experiences teaching music, I have encountered many different methods of pedagogy. I have tried many of these to aid in my musical instruction and from them I have derived principles that I use in my teaching today. My own method involves three ultimate goals that I want my students to achieve from their instruction.
My role as a teacher is to supply my students with the right skill set to pursue their own creativity. With music, there is no set solution to any given problem. That is why I enjoy being very flexible with my students. Any piece of repertoire can be played and interpreted in a variety of ways. I strive for originality and encourage my students to do the same with any piece of music they play.
I teach all skill levels, and I cover a broad scope of disciplines, depending on the skill level of the student, from technique intensive guitar-specific things (basic technique to specialized, i.e. arpeggios, fingerstyle) to music theory application, songwriting/composition aid, improvisation, reading etc.
I offer group and private lessons in all genres to all skill levels. I have curated my curriculum with a multi-faceted approach, which includes technical prowess, performance, music theory, and music history. The main focus of my lessons is to instill the idea that my students are musicians first and foremost. Being a "guitarist" is secondary.
I have been very fortunate to have enjoyed a successful career in music, performing, recording and producing. As I expanded my interests beyond being a recording artist (Platinum Award) into production, non profit fund raisers and musical theatre, I realized that projects that gave back to the community, in whatever way, were the most satisfying experiences.
I use music theory as a foundation for teaching all styles from Bach to Rock. My system really helps beginners learn more quickly.
My teaching focus is on sharing my personal experience as well as helping you find the tools you need to develop your craft in the way that feels the most you and allows you to create music on your own.
Students will begin each session learning to tune the guitar with a battery operated tuner. The lesson will continue with single note applications easing the finger strength. Both harmony and melody will be taught using notes and later chord structure.
1| My method is a fun, energy-packed and safe environment where kids are encouraged to love God, music, their band members, and their electric guitar or bass. My desire is to partner with Church, Schools, parents to teach kids (6 and up) basic music skills using technology, rock, blues and worship, and this to serve as foundation for their musical growth and performances in their lives.
I teach beginner adults and children and can structure lessons to fit whatever style and interest a student has in music, performance and composition practices. Classical music theory and methodology are the foundation for my teaching, but I am able to pull in from other sources as necessary.
I tailor my lessons to the interests of the individual student. I encourage sight reading, but do not require it to get started and often find a mix of traditional notation and tabs tends to get better results and keeps students interested.
I gear my instruction to the students goals and abilities. I cover all facets of learning both physical and mental to help create a well rounded musician.
