I approach the topic of music, in particular - the guitar, in a manner of "showing" you what I know in a way that makes complete sense to you, the student. Until we live in an age where I can download "Guitar Legend" in to your brain - Matrix, anyone? - I cannot "teach" you anything, I can only ever "show" you things that have objectively made sense along the way. Through making a lot of mistakes along the way, I have found a way forward by knowing what pitfalls to avoid and the philosophies behind a "correct" practice that applies the right type of effort for the desired process.
I'm Sam Green of the Jamwize music school. I love music in all its forms but the areas that I can confidently teach are Guitar, Singing, Ableton (Digital Audio Workstation/Electronic Music) and DJing.
I am a university trained guitarist with a lot of passion for the work I do in music. I write, play, sing, practice, record and perform on a regular basis. Having spent 16 years in a regular music practice and performance - 5 of them spent at university and in private music lessons - I am confident that I can get you from absolutely no playing experience to playing your favorite songs or even writing your own!
Sharing music is my goal in life and I would love to share the knowledge I have gained over the years for those of you who are just starting to or thinking about picking up an instrument. Even if you have learnt some things yourself and want to progress with some structure, I can offer a way forward. Each musicians journey is different and as such, I will strive to tailor my lessons around the musical goals of the individual. My goal as a teacher is to get my students to the point where they no longer need me to fulfill their goals. Getting started can be the hardest part and that's where I come in.
I play and teach a range of styles, but I excel at Classical (acoustic), Blues, Rock and Jazz. By combining elements of technical work and theory with expression, improvisation and play, we will get you up and playing in no time at all.
The edge that I provide is a simple one. I conduct my lessons whereever you would like to meet. Whether that's your lounge room, backyard or local park, I will come to you for our lessons. In the future, I hope to own and operate a teaching space and recording studio but for the time being, I would like to provide an in-house "come to you" service for budding musicians.
The first hour lesson is FREE so we can get a clear sense of your musical goals and map out your journey together in a way that feels comfortable and easy to understand.
Feel free to send me a message, email, text or phone call to discuss your musical goals so we can begin mapping out your journey to musical matery!
