How do I teach guitar?

I have been teaching guitar since 1998 so I have some teaching years under my belt. I really enjoy teaching guitar and that is my passion! That is why I offer free short introduction Skype guitar lesson!

About my teaching

First of all I always ask what are my guitar student’s expectations and goals, as we will work on these particular things. That is if the guitar student knows what he/she wants. If he/she doesn’t know, then I will help to find out what would be the best things to learn first!

Some of my current teaching methods for you 

  • Simple songs – chords and melodies  (for beginners – both kids and adults).
  • If we are learning a particular song, I make sure you understand what you are doing.
  • Preparing for Trinity classical guitar and RockSchool electric guitar grade exams (UK).
  • I teach you HOW TO LEARN. So you don’t need me all of your life and you can learn songs on your own whenever you want afterwards.
  • Knowing all of the notes on the fret board and the best ways to learn them.
  • Jazz guitar chords and comping.
  • Rhythm training (bossa nova, funk, odd time signatures, reading and understanding written rhythms, metronome practice and more)
  • Reading
  • Jazz theory or Music theory – how the chords are built, understanding of keys,  best ways to apply theory on the guitar.
  • Best ways to practice scales on the guitar, the use of scales and how to put them into action.
  • Blues guitar lessons! – some cool ways to play blues comping and improvisation examples.
  • Jazz standards – comping, scales, chords, arpeggios, examples for improvisation practice, chord and melody finger style playing, jazz guitar comping with a bass line.
  • I look at 2 – 4 different things in each guitar lesson, so it wouldn’t only be plain theory or only chords or scales. However, I always ask about your expectations. If you want only music theory I am also happy to just teach that!
  • I want you to have fun as well! I always come up with ways you can practice new chords, scales, licks and rhythms on the guitar to have fun!
