BM, Capital University, Jazz Studies
In 2009, I graduated from Capital University with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies, and since graduation I've had many opportunities to play around the Columbus, OH area, performing rock, pop, and jazz music frequently. I love performing and listening to music, and as a teacher I want to share my appreciation with the rest of the community.
I have been teaching professionally since graduating from Capital University in 2009, and have had the pleasure of teaching individuals of all ages and interests. I've developed a lesson plan centered around building a complete musician, not just a guitarist. Integral to that plan is the development of reading, writing, and improvisational skills. I also like to focus on each students' own musical interests, studying music that they're interested in, as well as what I think is important for everyone to learn.
I usually start with Hal Leonard's Guitar Method Book 1 to get most students learning to read music. As we progress I begin to incorporate other materials and customize everyone's lesson to tailor to their distinct interests.
I like to have a very laid back, fun lesson for every student. Reinforcing that every person learns at their own pace is very important, as well as teaching good practice habits. I also like to remind everyone that mistakes are normal, and that even the best musicians make mistakes quite often. Listening to music is a must for any musician, so I often like to find and listen to a little music during lessons as well. By discussing musical selections, we can usually come to a higher understanding.
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.
