I started music by taking private violin lessons as well as classes in the 4th grade. I was active in church and school choirs for many years and played percussion in my Jr high school band. At the age of 15 I picked up guitar and within 8 months I had my first paying gig.
I'm an experienced guitar tutor based in north Oxfordshire. I have an honours degree in popular music and recording and I have an up-to-date DBS check. I can give lessons at my home, or at a local music store. The lessons I plan for my students are bespoke in nature, so you can learn what you want to learn.
Every single person learns differently and so I tailor my lessons specifically to each student.
I work with each individual student to provide an education based around the individual. Everyone's goals are different, especially with music, and I focus on yours.
Classes will be taught individually. The first day will be a brief test to the student to know their level. In this way, we can start working knowing that aspects should be improved. Students will be given material to be able to start working and perform exercises to improve technically and musically.
Through the 14 years that I have been teaching, I have made effective techniques as well as I have left aside others that are not so much. My general ideology nowadays is: No matter how technical the exercise is, it must always be musical and stimulating for the new performer, even for the one who has never even played in his life.
I focus on improving the following skills : - Music Theory - Reading music - Technical guitar skills - Improving your sound - Making you able to coordinate your voice while playing guitar We always take a little bit of time to set your objectives on the first lesson, in order for us to be as efficient as possible.
I generally tailor my teaching method on the student’s needs and abilities: the first lesson is usually longer so that we can get to know each other and that I can understand where the work is needed and what excercises I should give them to make them achieve the best results for their capabilities.
I believe that guitarists should play whatever music most excites their passion. It's easy to do what you love. I will help you discover what lights your fire, so that you can pursue it relentlessly and keep motivated effortlessly to practice and improve. I will teach you what YOU want to play.
I have Master and Bachelor degrees in Music. I'm very patient and am committed to the student's goals. Even though we're working hard, we should be having fun. If you're a beginner or a hobbyist, I've got a lesson plan for you. If your goal is to be a professional musician, composer/writer. or performer. I've got a plan for you as well. I customize YOUR lessons to YOUR needs and learning style.
I offer lessons at all levels and am committed to adapting the teaching program to the individual student and being able to have an open dialogue and listen to the students individual wishes. I put particular emphasis on music understanding and improvisation, but my lessons will cover all necessary areas such as technique, melody playing, chord playing and reading notation and chord symbols.
I teach both theory and practice. With me you will learn not only to play the guitar, but also to read tablatures and many interesting musical and cultural data. I love using technology to improve learning. I will help you play your favorite musical genre.
My way of teaching is completely molded based on the tastes and preferences of the student. I am of the firm belief that a student has to play the style of music that he likes the most. Having said this, I am very clear about the universal things that have to be taught on the guitar so that the student can freely express their creativity.

My teaching methods and philosophy primarily revolved around trying to find the perfect balance between teaching the students the technical aspects, including various techniques of guitar as an intrument, associated styles, music theory and arrangement, at the same time also providing enough practice and skills to students, to be able to apply these techniques to compose their own music, or cover...
I first learned to play instruments by playing along to my favorite songs. I believe it is the best way to keep yourself inspired, get over the learning hump and it's a great way to learn many different styles of playing music.
I am deeply committed to education and course development. As a teacher and performer, critical listening and research have provided the analytical foundation for my instruction. I focus on educational quality and pedagogical need so students, both in private lessons and ensemble situations, can develop as musicians.

basic and intermediate level. Any age. Methodic practice with: Technic Harmony Theory Rhythm Improvisation Music Education diferent stylesand Varied Methodology focused on an organized and sustained study. dynamic stymulation of music studying. methods for self improvement over a period of time.
The lessons are based on sharing a passion for music and having fun playing together. The learning path will be divided into the different lesson days between: - Learning of songs; - Theory of music; - Technical exercises; - Listening and Improvisation. Lessons are generally 1/2 hours and once a week to allow the student to learn and practice the study material.
I am namely a jazz/blues guitarist and have studied to a Grade 8 standard - I also play double bass, bass guitar, piano and sing. I write a lot of poetry and draw illustrations which have been commissioned for use by several bands/companies. When teaching I try to cater to the needs of the student, dictated by their learning styles and enthusiasm wherever it lies.
My teaching method consists of leading by example as well as relating towards player experience.
My teaching methodology is different for each student. After asking them questions and looking at their personal goals, I then create a lesson plan to fit their specific needs. I work one-on-one, and never give up. If the original lesson plan or explanation is not working, I change the method until the student achieves their goal of understanding the subject we set out to conquer.
I work from didactic methods where I combine the technique, reading, suggested repertoire and songs that the student chooses in order to motivate and accompany him in his progress step by step.
I am a professional musician from Sweden currently living in Paris, recently graduated from Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg and the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris (student exchange). I offer guitar lessons, acoustic and electric, beginners and advanced. - pop, folk, jazz, pop, blues and improvisation - private or group lessons, at home or at my place.
I start out with learning the feel of the instrument then move onto very basic finger exercises. On the side, I go over some music theory.
My teaching method is catered to each individual student. After outlining goals we will work toward achieving results in an effective and most importantly enjoyable manner. A mixture of theory and techniques will result in swift progression for the student.
My only aim, when it comes to teaching music, is to make the student fall in love with music and it's beauty. The rest will automatically fall in place! I focus on both, performance and production which is essential for all-round development of budding musicians.
I don't have a rigid process of teaching or progressing things as I feel it may restrict it's potential. Every individual is different and so why should any of the lessons be the same? Adapting to the circumstances and with the help of hard work, willingness to learn and give simultaneously is the work ethic I adhere to.
Lessons are tailored to each pupil adults or children. I have taught children and adults with learning difficulties such as ADHD, pupils on the Autistic scale, dyslexic and I and currently teaching an adult who is blind.
