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.
I am a University of Houston grad with a bachelors in business administration. I have been playing guitar for 15 years and teaching privately around Houston for 7 years. I've been regularly recording and traveling with my band since 2013.
Garrett is an amazingly knowledgeable guitarist! I've personally known him for a decade now and even in the past, he was a force to be reckoned with on guitar. Watching him grow through his bands and jamming together with him over the years has always given me a level to strive for when it comes to my own playing. He's always had the drive to push himself further with his playing and compositional works.
Not only does he have astounding technical skills with his instrument but also a deep understanding of the theory behind the music. Incredibly patient and kind; I doubt there are many musicians out there that could come close to being as great of a teacher as he is. No matter the genre you prefer, he's not afraid to help you dive into and master any challenge and make it looks easy while doing it. If you're looking for someone that can take you from the absolute beginning steps to full out shredding in any genre that you wish, Garrett is definitely your guy!
Highly recommended! I've learned an unbelievable amount from Garrett; he's a phenomenal both guitarist and musician, so there's no question about his technical abilities and mastery of the subject matter, but what really solidifies him as a teacher, specifically, is his super friendly and silly demeanor, which make it easy and enjoyable to learn from him. It's no fun when a teacher makes you feel shy or silly for asking questions or not understanding/remembering something, so rest assured, Garrett will make you feel like you've been best friends for years. In conclusion, take lessons from Garrett! You'll learn and/or get better at guitar, and you'll have fun in the process!
I have worked with Garrett on numerous occasions and witnessed his skills as a guitarist and his thorough knowledge and love for music theory. Furthermore, his kind personality and genuine listening skills are sure to make him an effective and trusted teacher for students of any age. Highly recommend!
