Teaching Info

My approach to teaching guitar is based on the strong belief of learning an instrument without shortcuts. I believe a guitarist needs to have elements of intellectual, subconscious and experiential learning. With firm roots in the foundations of becoming familiar with the instrument, my goal is to show students how to use the guitar as a tool to speak the language of music. To do this, I push my students to learn repertoire through aural and notational forms. Like in an interesting conversation, improvisation is of the essence while being literate in music notation will also provide one with the ability to absorb music faster. My ultimate aim is to produce students who are competent on the guitar while having fun through the process of development.
