Lessons are usually at the studio or in your home. When covid stay at home periods are in effect, classes are online only. Nothing complicated, just Skype or Facetime.
Pick a duration that works for you – 30, 45 or 60 minutes. We can meet weekly or bi-weekly, or on a more flexible schedule. All ages and genders are welcome, from beginner to advanced levels.
My teaching style is warm, encouraging and low pressure. I never intimidate or belittle students, and I concentrate on progress not perfection. I like to work hard during a lesson, with minimal time wasted, except for laughs. If you can’t bring your instrument, you can use one of mine. Your input is welcome.
I teach a variety of instruments and genres. Do you like pop, rock, or country? Funk and dance beats? Blues, folk or punk? You can learn swing jazz or latin styles, or beginner’s classical guitar. I can help with your original music and lyrics and improve your band skills.
My lessons are effective and up to date because I research and design material for your goals and interests. I work with your musical abilities and personality, to build technique at your unique level. I can record examples for you to play along to, with an option to record your playing. Another benefit of my lessons is the development of intelligent listening skills – how deeply are you experiencing music you hear or create?
