Hello all! My name is Brian, I'm 23 years old, I've played guitar for nine years and ukulele for around five. Although I'm new to "professional" guitar tutoring I have, over the past two years or so, taught a good number of friends and coworkers how to play both instruments. I specialize in fingerstyle playing and generally teach with an acoustic instrument.
You might be wondering what exactly I'd be teaching...I prefer to focus on the use of the various picking techniques rather than just helping to learn a specific song, if you already know a broad range of techniques then learning new songs in your own time will be so much easier. My general course structure is as follows; learning basic chords, basic strumming and flatpicking. Then onto learning bar chords and more advanced strumming techniques. Then moving onto basic fingerstyle and finally onto more advanced fingerstyle and an introduction to some alternate tunings. I will teach the student a few simple songs with each part of the course that will showcase the techniques that they've learned which they can play to practice. How long it takes to learn all of these things completely depends on the students proficiency and willingness to learn.
And if you were curious, the guitar I'll be using is a Yamaha NTX1200R.
I've been playing for nine years, I took three years of guitar classes through school but am largely self taught.

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've been playing guitar for nine years, took three years of classes through High School, I've taught a number of friends and co-workers how to play. I use a structured course starting with basic techniques and moving up to more advanced ones as the student progresses. I'm very patient and calm as a music teacher needs to be.
