I have been in the music business for the past six years as a Producer, Audio Engineer, Songwriter, Arranger, Musician, and Music Teacher.  I am a vocal coach, a keyboardist, and guitarist with gigging experience.  I have worked with several artists and musicians in the studio and I always strive to push all the right buttons to make sure that my artists and students get the most out of their lessons and learning experience.  

Frederick C

Instruments:

I am a music instructor and performer (as Min. of Music), with a passion for music, the fun in musicianship the a collaboration of musical instruments.  I began teaching myself at the age of 9.  Then furthered my understanding of music through high school, and college.  I believe music should be fun to learn, while leaving a proud feeling after you have acheived playing a complete musical piece - which will turn into performance (your chance to get audience to feel your passion with admiration).  I enjoy seeing complete groups come together in sync with each other as their music becomes the conversation.

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.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Where possible, it is beneficial for younger students to begin their guitar lessons on a smaller sized guitar. Half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars are the most suitable guitars for young beginners. Older students who can manage to hold their guitar comfortably may wish to start out by using an electric guitar. For $150 - $200, a brand new student model guitar can purchased. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar leads, which are essential for an electric guitar player, and will therefore incur additional costs. Students will typically have fun and enjoy playing an instrument dependent on how easy they find it to play. Consider that higher quality instruments are often nicer and easier to play when looking to buy a guitar.
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.
Our guitar students will learn how to hold, tune, and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favourite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
Whatever your current ability level, we recommend that students wanting to take guitar lessons have a clear aim in mind. Maybe there is a song you have always wanted to be able to play? Or maybe you want to develop your songwriting skills? Whatever your goals may be, our experienced teachers can help you achieve them with expert knowledge. Whether it be learning to play a sequence of chords, jamming a cool riff or mastering that guitar solo, developing the required skills and co-ordinations can take time. Taking regular lessons and practicing on a daily basis is the best way to achieving your goals.
Students can start their guitar lessons as young as 6 years of age. We recommend that younger students begin by playing a half size classical guitar with nylon strings, as the smaller guitar and softer strings will be more comfortable to play. By the age of 7 or 8, most students are able to start forming chords, and can learn to play and sing along to their favorite songs. Around the ages of 10-12, most students are able to start playing a full sized guitar, and they generally become interested in learning to play rock music on an electric guitar.
