What makes my teaching stand out is the blend and balance of all the elements (technical, aural, theoretical) which will enable the students to achieve all of their goals, ranging from being able to strum simple chords to becoming a professional guitarist and musician, and ultimately achieve learning independency! In addition the students benefit from customised lessons for any type of learner in order for them to be effective in the learning process.
As I am currently studying at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance and preparing for obtaining my Teaching Licentiate and Rockschool certificate, I am constantly developing and improving my teachings. So, they incorporate guitar technique representative for Rock, Blues, Funk, Soul, Reggae, Jazz, Fusion, Country etc.
Besides the motor skills, I concentrate on vocabulary, musical phrases, chord progressions and, ultimately, actual songs for these styles of music.
I also teach students everything they need to know about harmony and theory (which will help them be more in control of their musical exploration), improvising and fretboard skills.
In addition, I focus on developing one of the most important thing in studying, writing and playing music: Ear-Training. In order to develop my skills in ear training, I have been taught by not only contemporary music teachers, but also from professors from conservatoires. In a nutshell, ear training comes down to notating the music you hear on paper (transcribing) or/and playing directly on your instrument.
We can also study sight-reading on your instrument, so you can learn to play songs while reading the musical notation, and eventually write your own!
I also teach basic home recording techniques, so you can learn how to record and produce your own tunes, and so, fulfil any kind of musical desire. That includes me teaching you how to use a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), plug-ins, midi information etc.
