For my beginning students, I teach the INstrument first. What each knob does, the names of the strings and the names of every note on the Bass/Guitar/Keyboard.The Major and Minor scales come next but examples of each are played for the student so that the color of the scales become familiar. I teach how to communicate with other musicians. Charts, Tabs and Nashville number systems are included. A full knowledge of the instrument and how it is used and played is my goal for each student. Keeping their individual gifts and approaches to the instrument must be recognized and enhanced.
Edward Aufman Wexford Pa. My son and I both take lessons from Joe and have made an AMAZING amount of progress. He got both of us playing the songs we like right away, and gradually got into the theory of what we had learned. Every lesson I am just as excited as the first lesson. He has done so much for both of us, and he is a wonderful person and role model for my son. Joe is a true musician, and has helped us with guitar, bass, and drums. If you are interested in learning and having fun while doing so, I highly recommend Joe
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.
