*** Lesson Details *** Most students want to play the Guitar to play their favorite songs and I'm the same way. Music is something we carry with us in our hearts and minds. Students will learn what they wish to learn and work at a pace that is comfortable to them.
This 30-year veteran teacher, performer and recording artist can get you started as a beginner, or bring you to the next level as an intermediate or advanced player I have a Masters Degree, and have been performing and teaching for over 35 years. While performing is a delightful experience, I feel equally as enthused when teaching others and helping them grow in their own artistry.
I ensure that every student receives a fundamental foundation pertaining to the subject. While learning the basics, I advise that the student organizes their lessons and materials in a way that displays progress over time. With the proper knowledge, we can treat the heart of a subject with refinement in order to grasp its purpose and reason---whether its music or math.
We accept students of all ages and levels. The lessons take place at my studio in Colorado Springs, or if you are not local then I do provide lessons on Skype as well. We do group lessons for younger children (3-5 years old) to learn the basics of music. We also offer group lessons for grade school age children as well.
My teaching method is focused on all the instruments since I apply the musical theory from the harmony and ear training on the instrument. The classes are based on the interests that the student wants to study and from that the curriculum is built.
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.
My approach to teaching always starts with where the student is currently at with their musical journey. Understanding where notes on the fretboard are crucial for a beginner in order to understand the basic fundamentals of theory. It's important to grow on the individual's strengths.
My classes are personalised to each students needs with focus on progression and fun! I can teach from beginner to advanced levels, and usually structure my lessons like this: Warm up/Scales - Chords and theory knowledge - Song of choice My chosen discipline is 'Fingerstyle Guitar' which includes techniques like two-hand tapping, artificial harmonics played melodically, guitar percussion,...
My teaching method is based on your musical interests, so you get to learn what you love. I use internet sites, youtube,some basic books to get you started and your own ideas. We both create your lessons with fun easy techniques.
My main idea of teaching guitar and music is that is should be fun for the student learn, we can focus on specific songs, technique, chords, music theory, whatever you feel like doing during that class.
My characteristics as a guitar tutor is a professional experience sharer with passion, patience, and organized teaching structure. In individual class, I will firstly design personalized course based on the students' levels and goals. In group class, I will use group dynamics to promote the learning effects based also on the students' levels and goals.
I believe in a holistic learning environment that is based on the interests and goals of the individual. Having worked with full classes, small groups, and over 20 indivual students, I view teaching as a collaborative exercise, working with the individuals to create a unique an indidual plan that will create fantastic results.
My methodology is: work smarter, not harder. Technique is of the upmost importance to achieve musical goals without damage to the musician. I give lessons up to college level voice (especially audition cuts and musical theatre singing) and up to intermediate guitar/ukulele/piano. I will expect students to warm up before a lesson as well as with me at the beginning of each session.
My main focus in my courses are for beginners and intermediate guitarists. Im going to teach you how intervals work together, how to play in scales and patterns that come with them, modes and much more! This is a course for those that can play guitar but want to really understand their instrument to the maximum level.
My method first is knowing all the abilities the person have to guide him/her to the right path. Knowing the level of the student is essential, that way I can teach the things that are missing. I'm a very patient guy and I will work until you learn what you want.
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 use a holistic approach, teaching complete songs, the chord structure, lead patterns, riffs, bass runs and the lyrics. Learn the song, all the parts, then on to the next one. If you already know your basic chords, we can progress very quickly. I have over 500 songs in my repertoire. I can teach you how to play rock ‘n roll, blues, soul, jazz, and folk.
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 teach by finding the most simple and logical path from brain to hands, then introduce practice patterns to reinforce and of course there has to be some jam time afterward to secure new knowledge. Understanding the students method of learning and adapting is key.
I believe anyone can learn to play music! I did not grow up in a musical household but have adopted techniques through my years of education and touring to make music accessible to beginners and advanced students.
I'm an adaptive teacher, whatever level my student's knowledge is in the given field, together we assess goals and tangible milestones and I put together a game plan specific to us. Each student is different, so that's how we approach every class.
As a guitar instructor my method is watch and mimic. I put a lot of emphasis on timing and practicing changing chords. This is important because changing chords must be done quickly. I have been playing guitar for over 40 years. I also sing along to the guitar.
Because everyone learns differently, my teaching method is tailored to each student's needs and way of learning. However my method includes technique, theory, ear training, music listening, performance, composition, and music copying. Our first lesson is used to asses each student's skill level and to begin building a custom learning path.
I have been told I am a pretty good guitarist, and I know a lot of the logistics and music theory around playing instruments. I like to start from the basic chords and rock and roll riffs and move on to more advanced things like improvising solos.
I am a graduate of the University of Arizona. I have received a Bachelors Degree in Music Education. I am also a certified teacher in the state of Texas, as well as Arizona. My certification is for Kindergarten through High School, all levels of music. I have a certification to teach general classes at the Elementary Level K-5th grade from Sam Houston University.
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 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.
