I hold a Doctorate (DMA) on the classical guitar and have many years of experience, including teaching guitar at Stony Brook University. I am well qualified to assist in tutoring at any level in the history or theory taught as high as the University level.
For learning the guitar, I find two things to be the most important:
1. Musicianship. This includes understanding the theoretical elements of music and also developing the ability to listen to music in a constructive way.
2. Technique. It is extremely important to be able to play any instrument in the most efficient a manner possible. A musician with good technique is someone who seems to an audience to have the ability to play effortlessly.
As an educator I try to work with all of my students on these two things, no matter what style they prefer to learn. I have experience teaching and performing in a variety of styles including rock, blues, folk, jazz, and classical. I teach any age group and can tailor to the needs of the student. I try to make the lessons fun, but always with the purpose of improving.
I hold a Doctorate in Classical Guitar, although I am able to teach any of the following styles:
Classical, Jazz, Popular, Folk, and Rock
There is an emphasis on music reading and technique, although tablature is also encouraged and used.
Lessons include scales, chords, reading, technique, and learning popular music.
