I'm a conservatory trained teacher that has been playing guitar for over 30 years. I've also trained with many top notch teaching professionals including one named Alex Skolnick ( Testement, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Alex Skolnick Trio).
My method of teaching includes using songs that the student likes to help teach them the fundamentals of music. We learn these fundamentals and apply them to both the songs we are learning along with teaching them to apply them to creating original compositions of their own.
We also also work through curriculum which is a combination of my material, Troy Stetina series, Rock Shop series and Musicians Institute curriculum. This give the student a thorough musical education on their chosen instrument.
Last but not least is while we will need to do some real work within these lessons I try to focus on making everything fun and I'm always open to questions and taking needed detours when the time calls for it. I'll do whatever it takes to make sure my students completely understand what is being taught!
