BA music with a focus in fingerstyle guitar, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee
Music is my life and my love. I treat it with respect and if you can do that than you will be able to perform at a high level and become a very skilled musician. I work hard to identify weaknesses in order to make them strengths. If you are dedicated or just looking to learn a couple tunes, I will help you to own it at whatever level you hope to achieve.
I started playing electric guitar when I was young but fell in love with fingerstyle guitar in college. Artists like Michael Hedges, John Fahey, and Andy McKee are a few of the artists whose repertoire I've studied. I am also well knowledge's in theory and offer theory courses along with guitar as well.
It is important to work on dinner strength and independent finger mobility. I will first judge your abilities with a couple exercises and determine what you can conquer easily to get you moving in the right direction. I want to see my students working on both technical exercises and songs they want to learn. Both rhythm or lead.
I like to work with a metronome and ask my students to do the same. You can download a free app on your phone or buy one at a fair cost at a music store. Slow and steady wins the race and once that is established we can kick it up a notch.
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.
