As a guitar teacher I emphasize proper left and right hand technique. I teach harmonic ear-training, i.e. the ability to identify a chord progression and notate it, so that you don't have to rely on awful guitar tabs that are never correct! I like to teach rock guitarists some classical pieces and I also encourage classical guitarists to learn a few old rock songs that they always wanted to play, but I will only teach what the student loves to play. I enjoy teaching singers who want to accompany themselves on the guitar, and I encourage all of my guitar students to sing, and if you hear me sing, you'll know I don't teach vocal technique!
As part of the lesson my students have the option of making demo CD's of their playing. Recording is one of the best ways to perfect your work, because you listen to what you're really doing, hear what you really want to do and do another take until you get it. The most important point that I like to convey to prospective students is that during our sixty-minute lesson, I will focus with them on whatever music they want to play. I am also a good consultant for the guitarist who needs advice about guitars and amplifiers.
Standard rates are $45 per hour or $25 for a half hour lesson.
