Here’s How a Normal Lesson Works…
To give you an idea of how a normal, one-hour lesson works, here’s how I break it down:
1. Warm up
2. Review previous material
3. Learn new material
4. Jam (FYI – this is one of the best ways to practice what you’ve learned in a really satisfying and productive way).
5. Identify goals for next week
The material I teach depends on your interests.
Most lessons are dictated by the interests of the student.
Do you want to learn your favorite songs by your favorite bands? Great!
Would you prefer a more traditional approach and learn to read music and follow along from a music book? No problem!
If it fits your style, we can also use alternative supplemental techniques like: listening to other guitar players, observing proper technique, as well as practice proper technique, note and fretboard memorization, open mic opportunities for older students, and of course there are concert/performance opportunities throughout the year.
I prefer a holistic approach to my guitar instruction – students seem to respond to this more effectively as well (Click here to see what they’re saying).
Before or during our first lesson we will talk about your goals, skill level, and musical tastes. This will help give me an idea of where to start with an organized and tailored plan.
