I have been teaching professionally 10 years. I teach all ages and currently teach a variety of students ranging from the ages of 6 to 56.
I have found that my approach to tuition is slightly different to the traditional formats offered. The key is to understand the goal of the individual - what the individual wants to personally achieve on the instrument, the music that excites them and the playing approaches that captivated them to want to learn the instrument in the first place - and after identifying such basic foundations, lessons can be structured.
I scale lessons to fit the learning pattern of each student - everybody learns differently and everybody is at different levels on the instrument. I always focus on the key areas in lessons including Chords, Chordal Work, Scales, Ear Training, Playing in Key, Techniques and Musical Theory - and use these fundamental elements to assist in the development of the individual on the instrument helping them find their musical voice. I have a range of techniques that I have created over the years that assists in overcoming the common issues faced by individuals when attempting to learn the instrument which are implemented within each lesson.
Most of all, it is important for the individual to enjoy each lesson and walk away feeling productive.
