I have taught at North Central University in Minneapolia, Minnesota, and the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music in Brooklyn New York. I have taught privately for 20+ years and I enjoy the applications and creative processes involved in teaching music. I have worked with young students on basic guitar, bass, piano and drum skills including music interpretation, rhythmic development and music theory.
The method books I use are Hals Leonard Books 1&2, Alfreds Kids Guitar course for ages 5 & up, Mel Bay method books 1&2, Alfreds Book 1 for Chords. For the more advanced student I use the Berklee Guitar Method by William Levitz.
As an Guitar Instructor my first priority is instilling each student with a love for music and the tools to reach their goals. I also enjoy having fun while meeting their needs!
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.
