Jason M

Instruments:

  I am very passionate about music and its multitude of benefits, which as the emotions it can elicit, but also the plentiful research to support its effect on improved cognition. When I was about 13 years of age, I started playing guitar (both acoustic and electric) and have played in rock bands and later for church groups. A couple of years later I picked-up the bass guitar and yes, even the piano when I started my undergraduate studies. Music theory and composition came to be a great interest of mine during these life changing years. I continue to enjoy playing all three instruments to this day and enjoy sharing what I have learned with others.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is highly recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, on the basis that they can hold it correctly and with comfort. For between $150 - $200, many student model guitars can be bought from new. Electric guitar players will also need to purchase an amplifier and guitar cables, at additional costs. Remember, higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which will likely enhance the students enjoyment and development the instrument.
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 teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's guitar lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes on guitar, proper fretting, fingering, and strumming technique, how to read music, learning all open chords, how to play barre chords, how to tune a guitar, music theory, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the guitar!
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.
The earliest recommended age that students can start their guitar lessons is 6 years old. At this age, students will find it easiest to play a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings, and will learn how to play simple melodies on the top strings of the guitar. Students can begin to form chords, as well as play and sing along to songs by about ages 7 to 8. When students get to the ages 10-12, they should be able to comfortably handle a full-sized guitar. At this point, they may acquire a taste for rock music and want to progress to the electric guitar.
