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! I'm a conservatory trained teacher that has been playing guitar for over 30 years.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I'm a conservatory trained guitar teacher that teaches all rock styles including Hard rock, Heavy metal, Classic rock and Modern rock.
I teach the basic music fundamentals while using songs in the style the student is into to apply these fundamentals. For there, depending on the students goals, we can expand into more complex subjects like advanced music theory, learning to read music, ear- training, Advanced Rhythm and lead guitar techniques etc...
The lesson plans are built around each students goals whatever they may be!
