My teaching method is hands on. I like to get my beginner students to learn basic chords/beats and to some easy songs first and then introduce them to theory and music notation slowly to keep them interested and having fun. I find my method works well and 90% of my students progress rapidly.
Patience, explanation, direction, patience, the learning experience is in the hands and mind of the learner so the patience part is most important as you can probably tell, I drift through explanation and description and can expand on specifics on question
My approach is to first get people used to the instrument, learn their favourite songs from scratch, and use their own unique gifts. No student is the same, and I make guitar fun to play and learn.
My classes are flexible depending on the abilities and aspirations of my students. I base my lessons on 4 pillars of learning. Reading Music, Playing by Ear, Improvisation and Technique. I endeavour to discover what my students enjoy and what inspires them and develop their own idividual lesson plans to suit their needs and desires.
I base my classes on basics. Learning the basic notes, chords in a fun and memorable way with easy diagrams and hands on lessons. In writing, I begin with learning about chorus, verse and bridges, followed by word rhymes and subjects. In teaching music, I approach it in a similar way as teaching the alphabet, easy tricks to remember and using all senses. eg.
I like to get a feel for the type of music my students actually enjoy so that i can cater my lessons to their tastes to keep their interest. Will teach both practical & theoretical skills in playing guitar/bass & encourage them into the genre they prefer.
I'm self taught in guitar so my teaching style is relaxed and practice focused, with less emphasis on music theory.
My teaching method is fun and easy. I began learning fingerpicking very early and believe it has given me a wider range of skills. I will do the same for my students. I will include electric and acoustic teaching to give students a greater idea of what is to be a guitarist, whats easier, what is the correct technique so they can gain good habits early on.
My teaching method is to understand what the student is interested in; favourite artist, genre. I believe in teaching the student something they enjoy to make the lesson and practicing at home fun! Every student I have taught has achieved so much in their music.
Learning guitar is fun. I want to help you learn in the way best suits you. Learn the style you want to learn. Depending on your skill level a typical lesson might be, discussing a song you'd like to learn going over the chords used, having a jam and getting the strumming pattern.
I teach through various methods, depending on what the student wants to learn.
The best way to learn is under the Guidance of a good teacher, unfortunately, there aren’t many out there. I have Found this out with experience and ended up having to single out certain methods from a number of different teachers. Again, i found the best teacher for an aspiring musician is in the form of listening and learning from music itself.
I find it's easier to teach someone if you know what they want, eg: if they only want to play really pretty chords on an acoustic guitar, or if you want to do big screeching solo's like the pro's
I am an open minded male with a conscientious nature. I have taught a range of students: young or old, different ethnicity, male or female, beginners to advanced. I can offer solo, duo or group session (maximum 5). The length of the lesson is dependent on the individual but either 30 minutes or an hour.
My teaching method is step by step.... I have had first time guitarists learn nothing else matters as their first song... if you have the desire, I have the knowledge.
From never having played a guitar to freshening up Your skills before a big gig, I'm Your Man! I have extensive knowledge in notes, tunings, chords, progressions, scales, styles, techniques, effects and of course guitars themselves! Depending on Your skill level I can tailor the perfect class to You!!!
I see music as a gateway to the creative realm and as a healing tool. I encourage individual creativity and expression. Sound basic guitar training, including notation and chords will be used. These lessons are designed for those interested in learning guitar at a beginner level, yet in a way which suits personal expression.
Studying music, I have learnt to enjoy myself when playing the instrument. My aim is to teach beginners the fundamentals of playing, giving them the skills they will need to master the instrument. When I teach, I make my lessons practical, making students engage with musical materials suited for every individual students.
I like to mix my lessons with both practical and theory, while keeping them as fun and enjoyable as possible but i also expect my students to work hard and create there own practice routine. I'm a fun and fair tutor. I have taught from kindergarten to adults and am cable of teaching all genres/styles of music. I also offer AMEB learning if required.
My approach draws on various teaching methods and knowledge gained from years of live performance, songwriting and recording to deliver a unique system with proven results. I teach most styles including pop, rock, blues & classical, and specialises in songwriting and live performance.
I am a firm believer that everyone is inherently musical, and I will strive to help you release any mental and energetic blocks that are holding you back from your full expression. My lessons are tailored to accommodate for your individual needs.
I tend to start out by finding out where exactly the student is on their musical journey (current ability/knowledge...), then asking exactly what the student wants to achieve and starting the whole tutoring process from there in a personalised way.
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 like to approach each student individually and find out what they desire out of the lessons. Whether its just a casual approach to learn songs you enjoy or whether a student wants to dive into theory, technique and take the guitar on as more than a hobby. I am willing to provide whatever is needed at a pace that suits each Individual.
You'll literally learn to look at music and cultivate it in you. You'll become a strong instrumentalist. Things you'll learn:- 1. Scales: Pentatonic/Blues/Harmonic Minor/Chords; Arpeggios, Tapping, Sweep Picking etc. 2. Music appreciation: Rock/Classical 3. I'll give you violin lessons too but guitar will be the main focus.
I base my lessons around the style you would like to play but more importantly the songs you want to play.
I am very passionate about music of all genres (contemporary, rock, funk, etc.) I have taught music theory, practical knowledge, basic skills and song-writing. And from the experience of teaching these years, I think I am a good teacher who can make students feel comfortable and safe, and I love to encourage them so often times my students all progress A LOT within just in a few months.
I'm a very thorough teacher and I expect to impart every tiny amount of knowledge that I have into my students. My classes are very practical and the child will be sound in the theory and practical aspect of music.
Start off teaching basic chords, then learn chords within keys.From the chords learnt, we use these chords to play songs then go onto learning scales and learning how to apply these scales to chord progressions.
I cater my teaching method to the students’ interests and their ability. I focus on teaching interactive and engaging music that stimulates independent learning, and develops industry skills.
