For absolute beginners(which i have experience with) i typically show them a couple open chords to practice.this teaches the student how to place their fingers and also how to properly hold a guitar.once the student is a little proficient,  i introduce single notes on the fretboard, as well as a few more open chord shapes and task them to make a simple song in any style that pleases them. For adults, i typically find out what their interested in and tailor the lesson accordingly. the goal is to keep the student encouraged and aware of their own progress regardless of starting ability level.

I always ask the students what their goals are.  I include the parents as well in this conversation for the younger students, as I find that some parents want their children to learn how to read beginning at a young age.  Other parents may specify that their child may simply want to learn how to play their favorite songs.  For adults, I go with what they'd like to learn and take if from there.  I encourage sight reading, chord building, scale knowledge to all students.  My lessons are tailored to the students' musical goals, and they stay motivated when they learn their favorite songs!  Each song can be taught in a way where the student can enjoy learning it from a basic standpoint for beginners, to a more intermediate or advanced approach for those who have been playing guitar for a while.

My methods vary depending on age and ability level, but my ultimate goal is for the student to have a pleasant and engaging experience with music. I want my students to enjoy the process of improving their ability, which I consider a huge role to the overall effectiveness of their time commitment to practice.

Note that all students are different and come to me at various skill levels, from novice, to advanced beginner, to professional. The following method is an example of an absolute beginner's lesson: Lesson 1: Get to know the student, his life and musical goals. This allows us to connect to the music on a highly personal level. This makes the process much more fun and tailored to the students needs and interests. We do a little bit with the instrument in this first lesson, but it is more about getting comfortable. Lesson 2: We start working on some basic fundamentals - hand positions, breathing techniques, the history and function of the instrument, etc. Lesson 3 - X: The next lessons involve working through concepts, techniques, exercises, etudes, songs, and pieces depending on the instrument and interests of the students. I can give you valuable insight into the following things: Rhythm guitar: Concepts, rhythms, roles Bass - all skill levels: rhythm, groove, articulation, bass line construction, ctc Lead Guitar: Articulation, transcribing Music Theory: Chord structures, chord substitutions, general music theory Reading: Jazz charts, chord charts, sight reading and transcribing Creating a melody over a chord progression Creating a chord progression under a melody Forming chord progressions Improvisation and song learning techniques

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
