5+ years of teaching experience
Mastery of classical guitar literature and guitar pedagogy (from Carulli to Brouwer)
Tailored lesson plans for students
I use my own method books alongside other pedagogical resources such as the guitar methods left by Carulli, Carcassi, Sor, Brouwer, and many others.
I teach 1-on-1 with students in a personal, attentive environment. I try to provide a very professional, yet comfortable setting for my students to meet their needs. I have 5+ years of experience teaching private and group lessons and am capable of tailoring lesson plans to suit the student's needs. I am capable of traveling to the student's home, if necessary.
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.
