Bachelor's Degree in Biological Science
I'm Joey, a local musician & songwriter! I have been passionate about art & music for my whole life & wish to spread my knowledge with others! I have a strong knowledge in music as an art & music as a profession. I have been a member of several bands which provided me with live performance experience in the real world. I hope to find students that are in the early stages of learning that are looking for a qualified teacher to help them learn the basics of guitar. I hope to make learning as thrilling as possible!
Despite a degree in biological science, I have been studying music & theory since the age of 8. I had several years of lessons, experience in Jazz band & further studies playing with several bands. I also spent time learning voice & guitar in High School which ventured on into college. In the later parts of my musical "career" I have learned to coach & help others master guitar as an art & a profession. Song Writing requires a critical understanding of collective music theory & ear training which only comes from practice.
My lessons are setup for early learners or the intermediate player. I start students off with basic guitar information, structures & functions. I then move into basic music theory, reading the practical applications of musical notation & understanding guitar. Often we must include early chords here. Later we move onto musical scales & techniques. It is often easier to explain chords and their purpose. Chord progressions, rhythms, basic duet and solo improv work. This can lead onto song learning & song writing! Questions welcome
My teaching methods are hopefully fun & welcoming. As a guitar student in the past I remember how dragged out learning can be. It can be boring & stressful. I hope to override this by msking music a thrill & by giving students the lessons they want to help them accomplish their goals in music which can be daunting at first. I have spent years playing music so I understand critical mistakes and where they show up. I hope to a great teacher by giving my lessons with patience & kindness. I give the student the ability to jump right into the field!
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.
