I believe each individual person has a different learning style, so my approach is to meet you where you're at. My lessons will teach you how to get the best sound from your instrument and improve your technical ability.
I am a session guitarist, music producer and film and TV composer with thirty years experience in the music industry. My guitar lessons are geared towards contemporary playing styles from beginner to advanced. My teaching philosophy is based on finding a balance between learning the technical aspects of music and ensuring that students have fun and enjoy learning how to play the music they like.
My teaching methodology is to get my students learning songs as quickly as possible, but without neglecting basic theory and technique. Lessons will involve structured learning, with a hands on demonstrated approach with an engaging teaching method. I believe that a passion for the instrument must be maintained through the learning process.
I teach an engaging song based method, which is customised to you. Teaching you how to play a song you love as soon as possible helps with your confidence and is overall more enjoyable for everyone.
I intend to sit down with my student/s and find out exactly what and why they want to learn. From there we will explore the students favourite music and styles and I will teach them everything I know to help them achieve their goal/dream.
I base my approach on what is the objective. I build smaller goals based on that objective, and attain it one at a time. Though time is of the essence, I believe that when learning is concerned, it is best for it to take time. If an approach doesn't work, I don't force it. Instead, I try a different way.
I am very patient teacher and I want to help my students to strengthen and develop their musical knowledge in bass guitar no matter age or skill level. We will start with getting an understanding for the instrument through different genres of music and skill building techniques. I'm very happy for suggestions from studies or song that a student or a parent wants me to focus on.
Depending on the students age/ability, a lesson will last for a half hour with two sections - scales and song learning to one hour with three sections - scales, reading and song learning. The theory progresses with the student's competence.
The student always comes first. I understand each individual may have different learning scopes and can cater well with my flexible teaching skills. As a patient and supportive tutor I aim to make the student feel good about their progression in learning. Based on the curriculum and understanding of the students knowledge I like to cater to working on their weakest points.
I base all my methods on analysing the students skill and mindset to see what types of techniques are required to learn and keep them focused and motivated with ideas and inspiration that I've experienced over the past 20 years.
I aim to aid you in your musical journey and get you to where you want to be, whether in school studying for an exam or just wanting to jam with some friends, my teaching will have you fully covered. Teaching instruments of varied styles ranging from funk, blues, rock, jazz, metal, reggae, fusion, motown and hip-hop.
Very calm, proactive and focused approach as well as being organized and creative. I will focus on getting you playing sooner all while having fun in a relaxed environment through the songs you love.
My teaching is based upon gaining an understanding of what the student wants to get out of learning the guitar and move forward with a fun and structured approach to achieve that goal, whether that be to learn songs, follow a formal grading route, develop technique or learn new skills - beginner to advanced.
We will focus on coordination, music reading scales, speed and chords for improve your groove and feeling. Also we can work on specific songs that you might want to learn and play and we will learn a bit of music theory.
My way of teaching is from my many years of playing shows, practicing, teaching and just being a musician as well. I can identify what problems the individual needs to become more aware of and I create lessons according to what he/she needs to learn to become proficient in that area.
I focus on the learning needs of my students during lessons. I believe music should be internalised before it can be expressed. This way, students will be taught to play from the heart, which makes lessons less clinical and more enjoyable.

I teach bass guitar to beginners to intermediate. I like to teach students to read music and eventually join a band. I provide a positive environment and make sure students learn correct technique on their instrument. I start teaching scales and am flexible with what type of music the student would like to learn.
My teaching methods is Firstly to understand what will be the best for each individual student. Every person is a different but their needs can be the same, to understand the students system of personal values. Bass is the gigantic universe.
Patience and understanding in the face of struggling and confusion. Teaching is another word for guidance which I have prevailed upon every student I have ever encountered from the illiterate grade 3 classroom to the independent intellectual professor. We come to realize we know less and less as we get older and older with there being so much more to learn out there in the world.
