I try to keep my lesssons reasonably basic until I ascertain my students skill levels. From that point I can then decide how to approach music theory and playing ability. I've always found that being a patient listener is the most important tool in a teacher's toolbox as well as a sharp sense of a students confidence.
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'll teach the basic lesson of guitar with basic theory. As we progress, I'll be teaching Major and minor chords as well as fingerstyle patterns and strumming patterns. Student will need to practice everyday at least 20-30 minutes to become better and better.
Using a Reggio Emilio philosophy of utilising the student's interests to advance in playing and reading music for guitar and percussion.
I give practical knowledge that you can always use in your music career. You will learn how to play your favourite songs on guitar, how to make up guitar solos on the spot, and some music theory.
I assess the level the student is at and then base my teaching on that personal approach. Lessons would be for 50-60 minutes a week, and would be based on what the student has learnt in the previous week and weeks. That learning would involve previous lessons, practice at home and reference to a guitar teaching book or books at the appropriate level for the student.
