I'm a passionate and motivated vocalist/guitarist/lyricist who is mostly new to teaching in the formal sense. I've spent time in the past teaching friends here and there, but never really setup a regular clientele due to family or work commitments etc. While I consider myself to be a versatile vocalist who can sing most styles of music I belive my greatest gift to be able to access the deep emotions that make a song stand out to the listener. Whenever someone talks to me about music I want to know what moves them and why? Most importantly I'm most excited about this opportunity to teach because I'd like to help my students find their own unique individual voice.
Being a new teacher I can't speak to really any past experience. All I can say is that music has to be fun period. You're not going to practice if you don't enjoy what you're doing!
Listening! I want to hear from the student why they're excited to play the instrument, in my case learn how to sing or play guitar. Every person and thus every student will be different. Some people find certain things easier or harder than others, so even if say I were teaching say two students of the same ability or progress level I wouldn't just give them excercises out of a book I'd customize the lessons so they could develop and build upon their current skill level. Lastly, I don't beleive there are any right, or wrong ways of teaching or going about music as long as an individual feels engaged and is hungry for the next tidbit of knowledge.
Now I know everybody when starting wants to learn his or her favorite songs and I think that's great! I will certainly be happy to help with that, but while learning those songs I will point out why the music being played by a particular artist works from a theoretical as well as sonic aspect. Understanding why things work is the key to unlocking our own musical potential and exploration. As students progress I will not only give techniacal or harmonic excercises, but I will also give the student a chance to create someting of their own and bring it to the next lesson.
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.
