Woody H

Instruments:

Since 1996 I have been solely committed to a career in teaching and performing professionally. My Father was an amateur jazz pianist, my Grandmother, a professional opera singer prior to marriage.  My earliest memories came with a soundtrack: my Dads piano playing.  I studied privately both on piano (early) and guitar (later), starting somewhere in my fifth year. I always took advantage of musical opportunities afforded me at school whenever appropriate, whether that was a school musical, talent show, battle of the bands, jazz band or music elective.  More formal music education continued at Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA and further studies with the late pianist and author John Mehegan, Westport, CT

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized guitars. If they are able to hold it comfortably, older students could start off using an electric guitar. A good student model guitar can be obtained brand new for between $150 to $200. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar cables, which are essential for an electric guitar player. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student with a much greater chance to enjoy and develop in their learning.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
Musika plans its guitar lessons with the specific requirements of each individual student in mind. During the course of their guitar lessons, students can expect to 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 favorite 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!
At Musika, we suggest that adult students looking to start guitar lessons do so with a specific aim or goal in mind. This goal might be to write your own music, or maybe to be able to jam along with some of your favorite songs. Our teachers have the experience and ability to help you develop your guitar playing skills and achieve your goals. Developing the co-ordination and technical skills required to play competently and fluently can take time. There is no substitute for regular practice and guitar lessons from an experienced tutor.
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!
