Methodology

I believe that the environment and the way you teach and handle children has a great influence on what kind of people they become when they grow up. I believe that children learn best by copying adults and that it is therefore very important to not only say the right things, but to be a good role model.
I also think that a teacher should be able to explain fundamentals in a simple way, but at the same time being able to make it fun.

A flexible teacher is able to use different approaches to teaching. A teacher should be able to recognize whenever the students are not following a subject or are having trouble understanding, and the teacher should then change hers/his method. Sometimes a theoretical is better, and other times more practical. I think the main focus should be on keeping the students interested and motivated to learn.

A strategy I think works well is to focus on finding the balance of giving the student a "feeling of mastery (that they are able to do something)" and giving them something that they need to strive for. In order to find this balance, you need to learn about the student to see what makes them comfortable.
Most of my management strategies in group comes from being band leader of my own band, where I think it is important to check in on each individual to make sure they are following and that they are feeling good.

Background

I am a professional guitarist from Norway living in New York City, with a BFA in Jazz and Contemporary Music at The New School in Manhattan. I can literally play ANYTHING from jazz, pop, rock, blues, funk etc!

I am also a music producer with experience with Logic Pro, Ableton Live and Pro Tools, with a background as an assistant sound engineer at Platinum Sound Recording Studios in Time Square.

I have experience as a guitar instructor at Mozart Music Studio, Queens Music Academy and Ukulele teacher at PS 361 Woodside elementary school. I also tutored students at The New School in theory, rhythm and ear training.

I see myself as a social, patient and polite person who communicates well with people of all ages. I am very focused on explaining the fundamentals about music music in a simple way, but at the same time being able to make it fun.
