The first lesson is free for up to 1 hour!
Part 1: Tutoring
Part 2: Lessons
Part 1: I offer tutoring in playing guitar and piano. This includes, if for example, you want to learn a song before a show/ performance, whether this be an easy, difficult, slow, or fast song. I will assist and/or learn the song, so that you might be prepared for your performance. I also offer tutoring to students in elementary, middle school, junior high, high school, and Music101 classes in college (call or email for details).
Tutoring also does not have to be school related; I also tutor people who are just learning music as a hobby. I also tutor for music theory.
Part 2: In our sessions, you'll learn each string individually, scales, chords, and chord progressions for different genres of music. By the end of our lessons, you'll be able to write your own songs, play other songs, and advance in your guitar playing with confidence.
I teach acoustic styles, bass guitar, and electric. You'll be able to play for your friends, for school, various occasions, or of course, just for fun.
I've played in a few bands during and after high school.
I always encourage my younger students to pursue music as much as they can; I find this part of my job to be very fulfilling and entertaining. I even go as far as to help them put bands together, help look for gigs, or coach on how bands sound and function as a collective.
My older students sometimes at first expect, because I tutor younger children to young adults, that my teaching style may be condescending or slow, but over the course of the lesson, they find that they learn quickly and at a steady pace. Some are even discouraged about my age (21). I have been teaching guitar for 4 years, and piano for 2 1/2.
I'm currently attending college for psychology and music. I've been studying music for 14 years.
In high school, I was in a jazz band and tutored my last 2 years for piano, sight reading, and trumpet. In my last year, I was the lead in the school musical West Side Story, and headlined or was involved in talent shows and performances during the school year.
I can teach most ages.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks for reading.
