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 base my classes on the questions or concerns of the students. I am flexible in material and instruction. Generally, I will ask that my students provide their background knowledge so we know what to cover in the lesson without wasting time on knowledge the student already possesses.
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.
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.
Whether your goal is to master an instrument or become a great songwriter, it's mostly about immersing yourself in the music you love, and lots of woodshedding. However, occasional coaching sessions to keep you going in the right directions can be extremely useful. That's what I offer.
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.
My teaching methodology is different for each student. After asking them questions and looking at their personal goals, I then create a lesson plan to fit their specific needs. I work one-on-one, and never give up. If the original lesson plan or explanation is not working, I change the method until the student achieves their goal of understanding the subject we set out to conquer.
I teach according to need and desire. I immediately find your vocal challenges and start unraveling bad habits and creating new ones. I have a wide range of tools ranging from classical training to SLS, which is used by all the pop stars. It's an individual and unique process and everyone is different.
Connecting with my students and being attentive to their learning needs is top priority. Each student brings their unique learning style, and I strive to fit my curriculum to best fit their path. It is of utmost importance for music material to fit the level of each student, so I often write, arrange, or change music to customize the learning experience.
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 am trained in the Suzuki piano method and have 5 years experience working with both beginner and advanced Suzuki students. I am a strong sightreader myself, so I incorporate music reading with all of my Suzuki students as well. I believe in a balanced and holistic approach to music instruction.
Students of mine have been as young as 4 to as old as 55. I believe each student requires a different approach to learning and I dedicate a lot of time to figuring out what works for and inspires each student. Alongside that I believe it’s very important to build a positive relationship with my students and be somewhat of a mentor to them, especially as students get older.
I am an MSU College of Music graduate with a specialty in low brass instruments who teaches beginning and intermediate wind instrumentalists. I've taught myself some basic proficiency on the ukulele which I also feel qualified to instruct. Furthermore, I have a strong concept of music theory and can teach that as well.
My teaching methods are starting out with the basics on learning what are music notes how they're are used and interpeting them with playing guitar and how it can come along and make music. I can teach music theory, reading music and most importantly how to play music .
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.
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.
My teaching methods cater to the student. We can start wherever you feel comfortable, whether you just picked up the instrument for the first time, or if you've already been playing for years.
I give lessons to anyone who wants to find the music in themselves. The ukulele is a perfect instrument for exploring new musical frontiers, and I can help students learn to sing and play at the same time.
I teach each student based on his/ her needs, according to their goals. I help each student to come up with a plan for organized practice so that the student continues to grow and reach both short term and long term goals.
The way I can teach is the same way I learned, by collaboration. The mechanics and the functionality of playing an instrument is easy enough for anyone to find without a teacher. With Youtube alone you're set in that regard. What I can offer to anyone willing to spend time with me working on their craft is insight.
Relaxed lessons geared toward the students goals. Various styles and techniques; Fun and efficient practice exercises; Improvisation; Patience and attention to progress; Wide Chord Vocabulary; Music Theory in a way that is easy to understand; Tone development and playing by ear. Every student is an individual and responds better to different teaching styles as well as learn at their own pace.
I have a collection of song works and techniques in plenty music genres that will help the students to develop a repertoire in the area that they are interested in. These collection of work is divided in three different levels as: Beginner, Intermediate and advance.
I would give lessons to any age, as long as they are beginners or intermediate. When teaching, I would teach some small things, then evaluate if they're naturally prone to learning. From then on, I move quickly, if the student is able to handle it.
I offer two styles in which the basics of guitar or ukulele can be taught - Inspirational or Christian. Both will be taught on the basis of empowering the student to have the skills and confidence to stand up as powerful leaders in their sphere of influence! (The focus is not on theory.
Although well versed in a multitude of techniques, I primarily draw influence from the Abel Carlevaro, Aaron Shearer, and Suzuki methods. These, along with my recent Orff training, are the core of over ten years of experience in both private and group settings.
Hey there! I am currently working on my Masters degree in Classical Guitar/String Pedagogy at the University of Louisville. One of the tasks that I perform as part of my Teaching Assistantship here is to teach students how to play guitar (at multiple levels) and ukulele. I believe the best way to learn is by having fun and apply this mindset to my teaching approach.
I am a high school student and I give lessons to many younger kids, often ranging from elementary to middle school students. As for structure, I start with the basics: how to hold the instrument, some basic rhythms and how to read the music. Then I move on and advance into simple songs that eventually lead to the more difficult repertoire.
I like to teach kids and adults songs they want to learn and create enthusiasm as well as creativity within their learning experience.
I believe that everyone learns in different ways. I make specific lesson plans based off of the way my students retain information whether it be visual, audible, or anything in between! With my three years experience I have crossed paths with many different learners and I am prepared to give a variety of ways to learn how to play guitar and/or sing.
