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!

My curriculum is entirely driven by the students needs. I don't believe that one blanket method works for all individuals. Therefore, I spend the early lessons getting to know the student and designing the layout for our lessons moving forward. There are definitely certain books that I have used to assist with teaching. These books are dependant on the level of the student. Some of these books are Ted Green's "Chord Chemistry", "Rythms Complete" by Bugs Bower, and the Hal Leonard guitar method books. For young students or beginners, I will stick to a more formal book instruction paired with learning simple melodies and chords from songs that they enjoy. For more advanced students the material will be driven by their needs. I will work with the students to assist them with learning the music that they want to play and get them up and running with their favorite music.

My students take music at their own pace, and on their own terms. Whatever you want out of our lessons is what you will get, and though I expect regular improvement, I don't push students beyond their limits.

I've been teaching for about 8 years now. I've taught privately and with different institutions. I've taught at the University of Miami's young musicians camp, and at New England Conservatory's Jazz Lab. I've had many private students over time, many who have been with me for years and some that have gone on to great schools like Berklee. I encourage getting out there and playing and putting onself in situations that push your understanding. I find that playing with others is when people really get into music and get "hooked". It feels great to create with others, and the validation from understanding "I can do this" is invaluable. I try to keep a modern approach to things as well, focusing on how people make music today as opposed to 20 years ago. When a student feels he is creating at his highest level and learning in the process that's when I know my mission is accomplished.

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
