Michael G

Instruments:

I work very hard teaching my students great guitar technique, which is crucial to becoming a good player. I’m always finding new ways to keep them interested in music/guitar and performing in general. I also teach my more advance students how to write music, which we then perform together in recital. Usually the song is named after them. We then share all of those songs with each other. Jack learns Brains’ Song, and Brian learns Dean’s Song, and so on.Every student is different and not all will be interested in becoming outstanding guitar players. In which case I try to concentrate more on their strengths (not mine) which leaves them feeling better about themselves and open to trying something new like song writing or singing. I try to keep the doors open for them to have music in their lives at any level. This is what’s most important…that thy have music in their lives and get to experience a great teacher.    

Christopher V

Instruments:

I have been a musician and guitarist since 1985, and over the years I have developed a versatile and entertaining style of guitar playing. I have been in several bands (Hot Buttered Elvis, Bloody Meri, SUPERFAMOUS) and have extensive experience both on stage and in the recording studio. I love all kinds of music, from blues and blues-based styles like rock and jazz, to more esoteric and atmosperic genres. I devote much of my time to writing songs and instrumental music.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

The easiest way for a guitar lessons student to find out what kind of guitar to buy is to ask their teacher. Your teacher will know what local shops have fair deals, and which shops do a good job of setting up the instrument. Young students and beginners may find an acoustic guitar easier to play on and handle, while teenagers will probably want the power of an electric guitar so they can jam with their friends in the garage.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home guitar lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Beginners will work on core skills such as fretting notes, strumming chords, and playing simple songs on one or more strings. Once students know the basic open chords, they can begin to play their favorite songs! Teachers will cover sight reading and music theory, and can even teach students how to compose their own songs. More advanced topics might include jazz or blue improvization, guitar soloing, or classical guitar repertoire.
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. At Musika, our experienced teachers can help you to achieve your guitar playing goals, whether you are a novice, intermediate or advanced level player. It takes time, dedication and patience to acquire the co-ordination, techniques and skills necessary to meet your aims. Those who commit to taking regular lessons and daily practice will see the fastest progression in their guitar playing abilities.
Consider starting guitar lessons around age 6, and when a student shows lots of interest in playing the guitar. Young kids will do better with a half or three-quarter size guitar, while kids 12 and up can handle a full size acoustic or an electric guitar. If you are starting students at a very young age, just remember that they must have a minimum amount of hand strength and will have to practice every day!
