I'm a passionate music teacher who loves working with students of all levels and sharing my love of music. In 2008, I graduated with honors with a bachelor degree in Music Education from the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico. Also, I've been a touring musician for internationals artists, mainly as a guitarist, and I've worked as a session player, recording various stringed instruments, like guitars, ukelele, Puerto Rican cuatro, and more. In addition, I'm a music producer and have worked on many records and productions, in different styles.
As a teacher, I have years of classroom and private one-on-one instruction experience. Nowadays, I mainly focus on private lessons of acoustic and classical guitars, electric guitars, and ukulele. In my teaching, I focus on different styles of popular music, according to the student's taste and interests; also, I encourage them to listen to and try out as many genres as possible, to enrich their musical knowledge, which in turn will help them learn better. I encourage them to practice between lessons, so that they can see their own progress and stay motivated.
I believe in shaping a lesson around the student. First, I find out what the student wants to focus on more, whether it is notation and musical theory, or learning a few basic chords, strumming patterns and such, to be able to play their favorite songs. No matter their ability, this method of teaching is effective because I find that it keeps the students interested and engaged. A mix of theory and technique is always encouraged, but ultimately, I create the lessons around what the student wants.
All students learn and progress at their own pace. Because of this, it's important to plan each lesson according to the specific student, their level and their skills. As long as a student is improving, I believe that this is the . I also make sure to let them know how they're progressing, what they need to practice more, and to challenge them at each lesson to keep promoting their learning. Most importantly, music classes should be fun and inspiring, so guiding them as individuals is the best way forward.
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
