Overview:

I'm an experienced and effective instructor with a passion for helping those with an interest in learning guitar realize their full potential. I graduated from the Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor of Professional Studies in Interdisciplinary Studies, as well as certification in Guitar Mastery. Before my time at Berklee, I studied guitar performance, classical guitar, jazz theory, and blues performance at the Atlanta Institute of Music. I also have years of performance experience, playing lead guitar for bands all over Atlanta.

EXPERIENCE

I started teaching guitar in High School in 2009, and have been consistently teaching students in my home studio for the last 8 years. I took private lessons for 7 years from four different guitar instructors, so I know what works and what doesn't. My number one focus as a teacher is keeping my students engaged, and doing my best to ignite their passion for the instrument of guitar. I start with teaching proper technique, form, and posture, as well as the basic chord shapes and strumming patterns, and from there I teach songs that both put these new techniques into practice and adhere to the student's musical interests. I've taught 5-year-olds, 60-year-olds, and every age group in between, and I'm always looking to bring on new students of all ages.

METHODS USED

For beginning students, I always start with technique and posture, as improper technique can be catastrophic to your playing down the line. From there we'll cover the basics, such as chord shapes, strumming patterns, and scales. On top of that, each student will receive a "riff of the week", a guitar riff from a song that is in line with their particular music tastes. For example, if the student in question likes Punk Rock music, every week we'd go over a riff from a popular Punk song. This keeps the student engaged and focused on the light at the end of the tunnel while we learn the basics.

LESSON STYLE

The most important thing to me as a teacher is keeping my students' passion for music and the instrument of guitar alive. The best way to achieve this is to create a lesson plan specific to each students' desires and goals related to the instrument, as well as setting realistic goals for them each week. Establishing a student's musical interests and goals is essential to developing a fun and engaging lesson plan for them. By finding out what inspires a student to pick up a guitar, I can successfully develop a curriculum for them that will make them never want to put it down.

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.
