Overview:
I started learning guitar about 9 years ago in Malaysia. During that time, I also picked up running as my favorite sport. I came over to US in 2012 and graduated from Queens College with a BS in Exercise Science in 2017. During these 5 years I have been serving in church as a guitarist and teach whoever approaches me. At the same time, I also competed for Queens College in Track/Cross Country events. Music and Fitness are both my passion. Ask me anything regarding these fields and I will be happy to help you however I can!
EXPERIENCE
I have been a guitar instructor for 8 years. As an instructor, I love seeing students improving and most importantly being happy and committed with their music instrument. I also emphasize to students that the purpose of learning guitar is to not add more stress in your life, it's suppose to be a stress reliever. I realize that by saying this, students will approach and learn guitar in a healthier way. I will always do my best to make lessons light and fruitful at the same time because this way it will help students treat lessons as a time off from other duties such as school/work and at the same time being productive.
METHODS USED
For beginners, I usually introduce them the 12 main notes of music, the physical parts of the guitar, basic chords, and why these chords are named in such a specific way. As students progress, I will introduce more chords and plucking/strumming techniques. I also allow students to choose whatever songs they wish to learn. I will listen to it and decide whether students' guitar knowledge/skills are up to par for it. Depending on the song, some songs require much longer time to learn because of specific techniques used in it, meaning I need to teach it to students.
LESSON STYLE
As mentioned, I make my lessons light and fruitful. I don't want students to feel stressful learning guitar, I love it when students are at ease. I encourage students to improve at their own pace. However, it's also important to attend classes regularly (once every 1 or 2 weeks). This way it helps students keep track of their progress and not lag too far behind or sometimes even forgot about what they've learnt. I will always try to find out what music genres or artists students love, this way I can do my best to tailor lesson materials for them.

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.
