At its most fundamental level, guitar playing is a physical skill, so instead of teaching scales and the boring stuff, we start off learning easy riffs or sections from rock and pop tunes. The ultimate aim may be to become a concert classical guitarist, but we begin by focusing on just playing.
I am a self taught guitar player that learnt by picking and playing my favourite songs on acoustic and electric guitar. I picked up fundamental skills, learnt to read tab and play with correct technique through a mentor of mine which was very important for my development.
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.
I am geared towards students that want to write songs. A lesson entails a demonstration for 15mins and then the student attempting it for 30 while I correct hand position and help to adjust the pressure they use. I believe music is the most important thing in the universe and genuinely want to share my passion.
I approach teaching guitar with a casual teaching style, i will work to adapt to how you prefer to learn. I can assist with online resources or provide originals customized to you. A mix of practical knowledge mixed with theoretical underpinnings will give you a full picture to greater aid in your learning.
I do one on one lessons starting with the very basics from learning important notes and string identification right through to learning the eight chords that everyone needs to learn.
My teaching method is firstly to find out what the learner is interested in style wise. Second is determining what level they are at. Thirdly is devising a plan that covers techniques and songs with a harder song being the eventual goal. After reaching that goal, we will set harder goals and I will provide guidance to reach them.
I love teaching students who are committed to practice and improving their current skills on the instrument. My approach towards lessons and teaching is more relaxed and encouraging to create a welcoming space for students although discipline is very important.
Due to the physical nature of guitar, I don't have a strict ‘by rote’ approach to navigating the guitar fretboard and am instead interested in getting students beyond the point of imitating others – the goal is to get them to sound more like themselves. I use a constructionist approach to learning, that the student learns best from finding new concepts meaningful to them.
I teach according to each student's needs and learning style. I believe that music and the guitar can be taught holistically and measurably, with practical methods and simple guidelines. Every student has the ability to be successful at music.
I write custom lessons for each person. For that reason, my lessons fit your learning style and make you learn faster. My aim is to make you independent musician so we can jam together or you can create your own band asap.
Not every music student has the same needs. You need a method that has been proven to work over and over again, but you need a professional to identify exactly which method is going to give you the results you are looking for, as fast as possible, so you remain motivated and confident.
I base my classes on developing musical skills needed with a focus on the style the student is most interested in. Each lesson consists of - Rhythm skills on selected instrument (Developing strumming hand technique and rhythm accuracy) Scale Patterns Chord Patterns Learning a simple song that the student relates to.
My teaching is both practical and theoretical, with an emphasis on improving technique, aural skills, repertoire and exposure to modern musical approaches. Lessons are either in person or online and tailored to the individual. Music is the real teacher, but I aim to guide, inspire and clarify.
My teaching method is getting students to read music notation first so that they can become independent in reading music to insure they feel confident and comfortable knowing what they are playing. From there its just teaching the students all music theory and general knowledge.
My methodology for teaching is to create a fun and no pressure environment but also assure the student that each lesson is a step in the right direction for their musical journey, making music accessible for everyone is my greatest goal as I believe that anyone can play any instrument to any level as long as they put their mind to it and keep that passion in mind the whole time with small goals...
Sit down with the person and talk about what their personal goals are and then we can work on them together. I work in a practical manner, teaching chord progressions and finger patterns for the guitar.
I work one on one with people teaching them the basics - step by step strumming coordination. I can relate to peoples learning style and can adjust my teaching method to suit the individual needs of the student. I take time to ensure that the student is competent in each step before progressing further.
My teaching method is hands on. I like to get my beginner students to learn basic chords/beats and to some easy songs first and then introduce them to theory and music notation slowly to keep them interested and having fun. I find my method works well and 90% of my students progress rapidly.
You'll literally learn to look at music and cultivate it in you. You'll become a strong instrumentalist. Things you'll learn:- 1. Scales: Pentatonic/Blues/Harmonic Minor/Chords; Arpeggios, Tapping, Sweep Picking etc. 2. Music appreciation: Rock/Classical 3. I'll give you violin lessons too but guitar will be the main focus.
All the information provided to the student is what they would use in a real stage/studio situation. That includes the guitar technique, music theory, repertoire according to student’s tendencies, breathing, relaxing, pschological frame of mind, relationship with the band members and the audience.
My teaching methodology varies according to age, experience level and overall personality of the student. When teaching children, lessons should focus on what music is (rythm and harmony) and on what music they enjoy and why. When teaching initial level students, I'll focus on learning the specifics of guitar and developing a refined understanding of music.
Your tutor is a determining factor in your success, it sounds obvious but how much effort is put into understanding what you like, how you learn and what you need to do to get where you want is essential, which is why I design a programme specifically for you, for what you want: to play for fun, play in a band, learn to write songs, become professional one day or simply have fun strumming away in...
My teaching method is dependent on the students level of playing. If they already have the basics then we will work through Grade or song books to challenge their playing. If the student is starting from scratch then before that we'll spend time working on chord progressions and scales.
I approach my guitar teaching through a nationally recognised syllabus, providing excellent structure to students' learning. This will encompass chord playing, improvisation and general musicianship. I also teach a variety of repertoire appropriate to the tastes of each individual student.
I approach each student differently according to the needs and interests of my student. I try to incorporate technique and theory in a fun way for each lesson. I teach students from 11-18 years old and would consider beginner adults prior to discussion.
My method is simple and fun. It allows to play from the first class, I adapt to the tastes of the student, because it is essential that you enjoy yourself from the beginning.
I teach acoustic guitar, electric or classical. I am mainly focused on technique and listening. Of course I will teach all the theoretical bases for a beginner (learn to know your instrument, know the basic notes, know how to find them, some bases of solfèges if desired).
Since I am currently studying PostGCE for Young People and Adult Specialists at Newcastle College, I am learning more effective teaching methods and improving my teaching. I always make my lessons clear and instructive with an achievable goal for the lesson. Using individual lesson plans which are designed with the student each student has a tailored plan for what they want to achieve.
My main intention is to help my student become not only a guitarist/bass player, but primarily a well rounded musician. I aim to teach a skill-set that will enable my student to work within the music industry enabling them to become any type of musician they wish.
