I believe learning the guitar should always be fun. I subscribe to a style of teaching where the student directs the learning based on their interests.
Learning to play a musical instrument at an early age can enhance many aspects of a child's life. The disciplined structured practice in music strengthens various brain functions and allows a child to apply those strengths to academic, social and emotional activities.
My method is to start with a simple theme, either a rhythm, a chord, a scale and expand it into an original piece of music. Teach students how they can apply these tools to learn & master the guitar. The key is to create achievable goals and focus on these with each lesson.
The lessons are structured to accomodate the individual needs and direction of each student . A plan is made to help each student achieve their goals as effectively as possible, be it live perfromance, audition preparation or basic skill and technique development. I recommend a focus on fundamentals to create a foundation for development.
The way you want to play guitar, and the kind of music you are used to listen to will define the structure of the lessons. Obviously you won't be able to play like a rock star the first time and without any guitar bases. That is why I suggest a standard lesson structure: - Basic advice: how to hold the guitar; tune the guitare; change the strings, which position for the fingers ...
Think of me like Yoda, but taller and less green. I teach music because I love music, and I want to be able to share that with people! My methods of teaching differ based upon the person, their age, and their experience with music. I want students who are eager to learn an instrument or how to read music. I'm not looking for students who are being forced into taking lessons.
My teaching methods vary from student to student. I understand the importance of listening skills and empathy when teaching and interacting with the students. I strive to be a clear communicator. I strive to make the learning process to be engaging & fun with activities and getting the student to participate in the lesson, instead of being a passive observer.
A self-taught musician, I have been playing in bands for close to 10 years. I excelled in practical music class through high school, and obtained a Certificate 3 in Music at TAFE.
My method of teaching is to help my students understand more about music and how the instrument can really be the best addition to any band setting such as wedding gigs, acoustic pub/bar gigs or even live music events. It isn't hard to learn how to play as long as there is passion, I can guide you towards the right path.
I love teaching from foundation to top. Try to catch something that student love and take their attention by them. I love to link subjects together and I believe It works well. Students love to solve problem with the things that they newly got. So I want to give examples from real life experiences.
Hi there music lovers! For those looking to learn basic guitar, feel free to touch base. I have been playing guitar since 13 yo. We will focus on the basics - reading chords, how to strum, and get you started with your fave songs first.

Struggling with your range or endurance vocally? Can't finish your songs or get them to sound as good as they do in your head? I've been there too. I'll come to you or you can come to me, we'll play, enjoy ourselves, come up with a plan and a strategy that suits us; and through mutual hard work, learning will ensue.
My teaching method is asses where the student is at and supply what is needed. With long hours behind me it is easy for me to see what mistakes are holding a player back so I can prescribe material to satisfy their need.
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.
From the beginning you'll learn how to hold the instrument safely & effectively, to play notes and chords and scales. Then how to read music & play it, understand it & how to make it achievable & enjoyable ! If you are more advanced, you can learn tunes from recordings and from the page. I'll help you arrange & record your music & songs. or Prepare you for Music Examinations & Performing.
I work on building students' basic skills and extend their exposure of a wide range of listening and performance activities. Goals are set in each area of the lessons e.g. Working up to performance. Active participation of students in the lesson process is encouraged. Technology is developed as a powerful learning tool.
Lessons tailored for where a student begins. Can start by teaching basic chords, and fundamentals like; names of the strings, parts of the guitar, tuning your instrument. Can then begin to expand on jazz chord structures and lead playing in blues of jazz styles. Speciality is equipping students to sing and play.
I firmly believe that students learning of music requires more than just lesson time, and requires practice every week.
I love teaching beginners, watching them develop their skills and grow into their own guitar players, I find it extremely rewarding. I believe everybody learns at their own rate and should be encouraged to develop their techniques in that manner. I consider myself to be a very patient and supportive teacher. The thing to remember, it should be rewarding, but most importantly fun.
-"Everything is hard before it is easy" -Don't rush the art, eventually, it will come naturally -Cover the basics, repetition, mastery -Learn from tabs (get playing straight away) -Focus on chord shape, progression, and strumming patterns -End goal: Find flow in your music -Have fun!
I have many years of experience teaching bass, guitar, piano and music theory. Learning music should always be fun, and I focus on working towards goals set by the student, making it as fulfilling and enjoyable as possible. I always make sure all classes are tailored to the individual student's overall wants and needs. I have experience teaching students of all ages.
I love Rock and Roll so anyone who wants to learn the old ways to learn guitar should contact. My structure is based on the student, i will keep on a single lesson until and unless you are able to do it and keep on building day after day.
my method depends on what they would like to learn, if they would see themselves making a career out of it or a hobby. the lesson structure will depend on what level they are at and what exactly they would like to achieve.
I focus on the needs of the student. Every student is different and will require a different method to grasp the instrument. There is no one size fits all, and I hope that I can make the experience easy to digest and enjoyable to attend.
Over the past 14 years I’ve spent my time performing and writing in bands including The Getaway Plan and The Amity Affliction. I’ve been lucky enough to perform all around Australia, America, Europe and the UK, playing venues ranging from the Brixton Academy in London to Rod Laver Arena here in Melbourne.
We agree on a goal. What is it you want to be? Then we design the road map together. We then execute based on timelines and consistent practice and check ups as we build your technique and confidence. Until we both agree that we hit the goal.
My method is to bring emotions out regardless of what emotion that is and turn that into an audible expression, and how my experience can assist with that process. I base my classes on expressing yourself, being yourself, and inspiring to create.
I use set material, we practice with a warm up before grinding out the hard stuff and try to have fun with sound at the end. We can learn your favourite songs, cover different genre's, or learn to make your own style.
WHAT I COVER IN A LESSON: SINGING: - Work on your favourite songs - Work on your original songs - How and when to harmonize - Learn how to warm up effectively - Exercises to strengthen and protect your voice - Singing with emotion: When to project and when to hold back - Speaking on stage: How to introduce your songs SONGWRITING: I believe songwriting is very personal
