I consider myself a very dedicated teacher. I love what I do and this is reflected through my students and my lessons. I have been studying classical guitar for a decade, while playing bass constinently in various bands and ensembles. I have studied many styles of music that include classical, flamenco, gypsy jazz, jazz, blues, and rock. I have played in many local venues and continue to play in many festivals, churches, and venues.
Through my experiences teaching, I have found that every student is unique. Every student and family has their own set of goals for the music lesson. I do my best to meet the goals of the students, while teaching them music fundamentals in the process. These include reading music, aural skills, and theory. I am always open to learning new styles and songs to further encourage the developement of my students. I always tell my students to practice as much as they can. The more one practices the better he or she will get.
I practice a very open approach to teaching my students. I allow my students to self guide their lessons. However, I make it a point to keep them on track and progressing. I tend to custom tailor my lessons to the unique individual needs and goals of my students. This applies to choosing methods and creating lesson plans.
I find that there is no teacher better suited for the student in this world than the student. This means I do my best to have my students involved and engaged in the lesson. With this involvement I act as an experienced guide that helps the student achieve their goals. With this process I find the students become very engaged in learning, and find their own unique ways to understand the subject matter.
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.
