We work hard in lessons to develop you as the best possible musician you can be. Music is a holistic experience that develops the body, mind, and spirit simultaneously. I support on use the following techniques to encourage student learning. 1. The student should be fully engaged in the process.

With every student, no matter the age, I like to get an idea of their goals intended, or help them develop goals along the way. Everyone wants to play music for different reasons, and I like to keep that in mind for each student. However, regardless of the goal, my philosophy is to empower each student to discover their sound and voice on their instrument. Of course, we will still go over the fundamentals and essential "building blocks" of music, but also develop musical personality in the process. Read More

Jonathan P offers Guitar lessons in   Orlando, FL

Jonathan P

Instruments: Guitar

My teaching experience began during my volunteer days back in Pennsylvania. I attended Fairview Church in Collegeville, Pennsylvania and assisted in the daycare development of younger children. I would develop a passion for teaching kids through this experience, around the same time I started to pick up playing guitar. Music has always been a passion for me, so to learn to write and play my own music was something that turned into a real dedication. Read More

Instruments: Guitar Drums Bass Guitar Synthesizer Music Electric Guitar

For younger students I start with showcasing what they can achieve with practice and perseverance. I do that by showing my playing. Then we start with the chromatic scale so the fingers can get use to the strings and moving around the fretboard. Same with drums but we start with easy hits and patterns. For adults I would talk about what are their interest and goal in music (genre, style, job, etc) and go from there. Read More

What advice do you have about practicing effectively?
Everyone loves to say, "Practice!" Few people seem to want to translate this idea into something manageable, practical, encouraging, realistic, psychologically fitting, etc. Furthermore, many (young) people who are interested in music are also NOT naturally inclined towards discipline or "high-energy" goal-setting; therefore, they could use even MORE help than normal to actually DEFINE what it means to "practice." (Hint: It doesn't mean just looking at your music and trying to "get through" a song or piece -- although that's better than nothing!) Here's something I recommend to almost all of my students. Try 15 minute chunks each day. See if you can ACTUALLY get through a week doing this EVERY DAY (with perhaps one day off), instead of just telling yourself you "practiced this week." Getting motivated to do these 15 minutes is pretty easy when you know WHAT TO DO with the 15 minutes. Here goes: 1 Take stock of whatever you're working on. How many pieces or exercises are there? If one, that's no problem. 2 Rank these "pieces" by difficulty (and be honest, and don't overthink). "What do I not feel like playing?" Start with that one. If have only one piece, continue to Step 3. 3 Continue the same process WITHIN each piece. "Which part of this do I not feel like playing?" Do it!!! Your "dessert" will be playing the parts you DO like better for now. 4 The first 10 minutes of your practice time should be spent on Steps 1-3, repeating as much as makes sense. There is almost NO LIMIT to how "small" you can get while focusing on "difficult passages." 5 Try to insure you have time (within the 10 minutes) to reincorporate these "trouble spots" into the surrounding material. Hopefully, play/sing through the whole piece/song (assuming it's short enough), so you can enjoy the satisfaction of seeing what your very recent work afforded you. 6 (IMPORTANT AND UNDER-RATED) Spend 5 full minutes playing your instrument with "no rules," except the rule that you "can't" play your "actual pieces." Get to know your instrument on more personal terms: "What happens if I do this? What does this sound like? How does this feel physically? How do I play that thing I heard from a friend the other day?" If everything you do on your instrument was "following directions," you are missing out on creativity, on freedom, on mastery, on expertise, on enjoyment, on MUSIC. If you don't SET ASIDE TIME to have fun on your instrument, you may never do so, and you may "rebel" and use other time that should be used on your pieces to have fun instead. Besides, knowing that it's "play time" at the end makes "working" on your pieces less of a threat to the lazy part of your brain. Notice, please, that I recommend 1/3 of your DAILY music time to be spent in a "free" way. This wasn't an accident. Notice also, that I didn't recommend 1-2 hours' worth of daily practice time. Also not an accident. . . . If you've ever seriously taken up a fitness routine, you may have encountered the advice that you should "leave yourself wanting more" as opposed to constantly draining yourself and inviting burnout. I believe it's the same with music. I also believe that anyone who ASPIRES to an hour or more of practice time should have no trouble committing to 15 minutes . . . and that our beliefs about how we're spending our time are often far removed from reality . . . ! Therefore, make yourself "faithful in small things" before moving on to bigger things.

Play By Ear: A Quick Guide for Beginning Musicians

...We generally group musicians into two categories: those who can read music, and those who play by ear. Like many things in life, this is an idea that over-simplifies things and doesn’t really explain musicians accurately. Strong musicianship happens when a combination of strong listening, music reading, and understanding of musical ideas happen. The popular notion of “you’ve either got it or you don’t” when it comes to the way we think about playing by ear is also wrong. Yes, some people are gifted with stronger senses of pitch and rhythm than others, but everyone can benefit from learning some basic music... Read More

Guitar Scales Chart: Major, Minor, Pentatonic, and Blues

...incredible musicians out there with no formal training as far as memorizing scales go, but the argument to purposely not learn how to play scales doesn’t really hold up when you consider just how much they can do for your musicianship.     Copy And Paste   Unlike instruments like piano, clarinet, or saxophone, guitar players have the advantage of being able to use the same fingers and shapes to play various scales and modes all over the guitar. Think of it this way: When guitar scales don’t use open strings, the sequence of fingers and distances between frets can be ... Read More

2 Chord Songs: Easy Songs for Guitar

...song introduces the E minor chord, which has a much more dissonant and melancholy sound than most of the other chords on this list. That said, the chord is incredibly versatile, and is heavily utilized in classic rock and blues chord progressions. Also, the E minor chord is the most versatile chord with all of the other major ones that you are learning.     “Break On Through” by The Doors (D -Em)   Like “Paperback Writer”, “Break On Through” makes heavy use of the E minor chord. However, in the song it follows a D major rather than a C major chord. If you ... Read More

Testing Room Acoustics for Musicians

...designed with acoustics in mind, as a balanced perception of the performance is necessary to develop and hone a particular sound accurately.   Why Acoustics Are Important   The shape of a room has a dramatic impact on the perceived sound inside that space. If you’ve ever walked through a large, empty stadium or cathedral, you’ve surely heard the reverberation of your own footsteps. In a smaller space, echoing isn’t noticed because the sound doesn’t travel as far. Rather, the sound waves bounce back and forth off walls that are close to each other. When these sound waves overlap and interfere with each ... Read More

Intro to Jazz Bass Technique

...9th fret E at the 12th fret on the E string – octave E at the 9th fret on the G string   See what I mean? Any interval can be played several different ways and there’s usually no more than 5 shapes at most for every interval. Once you learn that shape it is A UNIVERSAL PATTERN meaning that anytime you play that shape you will be playing that interval. And jazz chords are made up of these intervals as well as all scales.   Conclusion   Learning to play jazz will require practice, skill, musical knowledge, and most importantly listening ...

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.

Ok

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
