Greetings potential student,
My name is Alexis, I am a 25 year old music tutor from the Northern Beaches in Sydney. Having studied at The Sydney Conservatorium of Music majoring in classical guitar studies, and tutoring students aged from 5-50 years of age for the past 7 years, I now wish to offer my tutoring skills in classical/acoustic guitar, bass guitar and vocal training to you!
I play a diverse range of different styles of guitar, from classical and fingerpicking guitar, to rock and metal on electric guitar. I am versatile with my method of tutoring, and I make myself flexible to the students needs and objectives out of wanting to play their instrument. No student is the same and although there can be a form to the method of teaching, it is unfair to say that everyone can be taught in the same way.
I have my own home studio where I can teach in a professional space, however, I can also come to your home and teach there if need be. Music is my passion, and I love to teach and pass my knowledge on to anyone who is wanting to get into the wonderful world of music!
I start each student I teach with a free trial where I assess their level of playing skill and find what interests them musically. From there, weekly lessons of either 30/45/60 minutes are organised where we progressively go through learning the craft of playing their instrument.
I firmly believe that each student has their own style of learning, and as a tutor I create specific teaching modules and methods specifically for each student. In general, I like to teach a balanced mix of technical studies such as reading music notation (both Traditional and Tablature) and promoting good technique to my students, whilst working on material that the student personally enjoys such as songs from a favorite artist or style of playing.
In terms of technical studies, I follow a progressive method that works with the student from the ground up with basic music reading skills which slowly increases in technical difficulty, creating a linear method to increase the player’s music skills. I find that this method combined with external learning material from the student creates an effective learning process for all levels and age groups.
"Charlie's first lesson with Alexis was great! Having a free trial in our own home gave us a pressure free environment to scope out whether guitar lessons were doable, and my son came out of the lesson feeling motivated...We bought him his first guitar this weekend and are very keen to proceed with regular weekly lessons!"
Leea Taylor (Mother of Charlie Taylor)
"I recently had my first lesson with Alexis and found his musical knowledge and teaching skills to be of the highest standards. I am looking forward to continue learning with him and highly recommend any student of all levels looking to take guitar lessons to consider Alexis as their tutor."
