I start with the instrument,what the pickup selector,volume and tone controls do, the correct way to string the guitar and of course tuning the instrument. I then use the finger strengthening technique developed by Steve Vai which he calls finger aerobics to not only build muscle in the hands and foreams but also learn the fret board and assist in coordination. I then teach a bit of theory and chord building methods. After that every student is unique and I customise the lessons for each student.
I am a professional musician who has performed in rock,jazz, blue's, Metal,folk,punk & funk bands. I have composed music for theatre and short film's and toured with the youth theatre outfit Southern Edge Art's as the music director and I run my own studio. I love to teach there is nothing like that moment when you see a student find there style and start to express themselves musically.
