Cooper has been a flexible, dedicated, and effective teacher for my son! My son is sometimes wiggly and doesn't always listen like many 10 year olds, but Cooper was able to keep him engaged and challenge him to keep working on his skills. My son always returned from his lesson excited about what he was learning and telling me how he wanted to practice so he could be as good as Cooper. And he has practiced! Cooper's rates are very reasonable. The only suggestion I have for improvement is perhaps a regular monthly time when parents join the lesson for the last 10 minutes and get a showcase and explanation of what Cooper is teaching and my son is doing. Because I don't play the guitar, I don't always know how to encourage or direct my son in his practice times and I also don't know exactly what to praise him for when he does it!
I'm a music major who graduated from St. Ambrose University, and I have been playing guitar for close to 10 years now. My focus at the university was guitar performance and composition. I'm proficient in how to teach songwriting and everything you need to know to start being creative with your instrument. You'll learn many different chord structures and patterns used in different genres of music.
Experience the knowledge of over 20 years of performance, directing and study of classical, rock, musical theater, campfire singing and more. I meet my students where they are musically to give them the experience that they want with their own music. Do you want to chord and strum for a sing along? Do you want to build the foundations to learn to play the lead? Do you have a voice that needs some fine tuning for any kind of performance? I can help!
I teach beginner to advanced guitar lessons of any genre. I adopt a standards-based model in which learners are worked within each lesson until they feel confident enough with a specific skill to practice it at home.
I teach guitar and stretching techniques. With guitar lessons, I will teach you how to teach yourself without a teacher. I basically kick start you so you don't need to spend too much money on lessons, while still being able to become the next Hendrix! My stretching lessons basically help you to center yourself. You will learn different yoga and massaging techniques, as well as a few original techniques that bring awareness to hidden aches and pains, bringing you to be more self aware and assisting you with proper posture. Guitar lessons are at $30/hr and stretching lessons are at $50/hr.
