I have 2 years of jazz studies at UNLV for guitar and jazz composition. I am also able to teach recording skills, basic guitar, basic bass guitar, theory, & keyboards.

Depending on the student skill level, I base lesson plans of what they are studying, practicing basic fundamentals, and adding classic and standard songs to their repertoire. I am not an advanced teacher, so I make sure that the focus is on developing the student's comfort level while playing and drilling those basic scales, modes, and changes to help them improve their playing.

Guitar Instructor for 10 years located in the Bay Area Wants to Teach You How to be a Rock Star

I like to discuss with the student what drew them to music and what drew them to the guitar specifically. I then ask which types of songs they would be interested in learning. Once they provide me with some music, I use elements of each song to teach them basic guitar theory and techniques. Every song they learn will then be able to provide them with a new tool for their future guitar playing.

Pianist with a Master's Degree in Piano Performance with 15+ years of experience

Each student has a different personality and enjoys different things; therefore a different approach to each student is necessary. It's important that students are involved in music they enjoy. Therefore, I tend to focus on different styles of music to teach whatever concepts the student needs, rather than force everyone to adopt a "one size fits all" approach.

Private Music Instructor offers music tutoring both individually and in group settings.

I base each of my lessons on the individual student. While I do plan for each lesson, not every one goes to plan! My joy of teaching is seeing the light bulb moments when my students finally understand a concept, whether it takes a few days, a few weeks, or a few months. I do not and never will teach to a book.

Orchestral composer with 18 years of experience is giving private lessons in Buffalo, NY

I give lessons to anyone with a basic grasp of music, generally middle school age and up. If you've never encountered or been interested in music beyond casual listening, this may not be for you just yet! We do cover basic theory but only as needed to tackle deeper topics related to composition. Regardless of music experience of the student, I tend to steer clear of overly technical explanations.

Music as a subject is very active. Whatever the specific topic it is important to learn each music concept in terms of visual and audible representation.
