Attention: Please contact me via text or email.
I have been playing guitar for about 10 years, and I wish to share my knowledge. I specialize in teaching how to write original music.
I have been performing live music since 2005, touring around the United States. I enjoy teaching beginner guitar courses to show basic chord progressions and how to incorporate those into writing original music.
My teaching philosophy is that I like to make my students aware of the best guitar chords and techniques for a beginner to start with, which will make them familiar with the process of the big picture; a large part of that is also teaching what the student wants to learn. This approach makes the student want to continue playing and practicing the guitar, as opposed to sending them home with all different types of exercises, which can seem overwhelming and, sometimes, boring.
Each one of my students receives a 10-minute CD with fun drum beats to play along with (when the time is appropriate, everyone learns at a different pace), as well as session recordings to teach them some basic recording techniques and to listen to what they have been learning.
I hold lessons at my home in Dixon, CA, which is the most appropriate place to start with the lessons. I am willing to travel within a reasonable distance in the surrounding areas (additional fees will apply).
I have a few packages to choose from. Standard rates are $40 per 1-hour session or $140 per month for 4 one-hour sessions per month.
Also inquire about 30-minute sessions.
