Fin's home guitar lessons & creative song writing sessions in The Gong. Let's Shred!!!

Methodology

My name is Finley, I am 17, and a current year 12 music student at Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts! I LOVE MUSIC :)

My target Audience:
- Primary School students (All ages)
- Year 7, 8, 9, 10, High School students
- Beginner and/or Intermediate Guitarists
- Electric and/or Acoustic guitarists
- Song-writers are welcome!!

My teaching methods include:
- Practicing finger exercises and finger picking
- Learning the basic chords and shapes
- Learning various strumming patterns
- How to smoothly change from chord to chord
- How to utilise both finger picking and chords at once
- learning to identify and create unique chord progressions
- How to solo in any key, using a variety of expressive techniques
- Learn to read guitar tablature
- Students can bring their original ideas, riffs, progressions, etc. to the lesson, where we further develop it into a sick song!!
- Students can ask to cover any song, and we can replicate it or create our own version of it

I base my classes on how my own guitar instructor has taught me since kindergarten. He is a qualified music teacher and has been tutoring for over 20 years - teaching me for 11 years - so his excellent insight to effective teaching methodologies has transformed me into a great teacher.

Background

I have been playing guitar for 11 years, and have taught it to various people for over 4 years, including adults and students, at all skill levels. I have been commended by my High School's Music department as an excellent guitar leader and instructor - being placed as a senior leader in my Elite guitar Ensemble at School. I am constantly collaborating with other peers and music teachers in my school ensembles, including the song-writing ensemble, where people have flourished under my guidance and further developed their musical abilities. I am strongly passionate about musical creativity and always encourage that my peers and students can freely express their ideas.

Outside of school, I am the lead guitarist in a hard rock/progressive rock band and perform at various venues across the Illawarra, including: La La La's Wollongong, Ryan's Hotel Thirroul, and the ArtHouse Cafe Port Kembla. I also invest my time and passion into my song-writing duo, where my mate and I record lots of our original content and collaborate with a renowned and talented conductor/music teacher of the Illawarra. As I come from a very musical family, I have grown up listening to a diverse array of music and am open to teaching all different styles and genres.
