Session Guitarist with 30 years experience gives one on one lessons in music studio

Methodology

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.
Individual lesson plans are tailored to each student and cover areas such as technique, music reading and theory, ear training and songwriting.
As my lessons are held in a professional recording studio, students can also gain skills in music production and recording.

Background

I've been giving lessons for four years to a small group of students and am now opening up spots for more students. Recently a student of mine has gone on to graduate at the VCA and another student is now playing in the USA as a professional recording musician.
I believe my skill as a teacher is in being responsive to the needs of the student, using my experience as a professional musician to help students achieve their goals.
