Learn Basic information about the guitar, what things are called, the terminology used. Basic guitar melodies, chords and strumming patterns. Working towards any song you want to learn how to play! If you don't have anything in mind, I generally focus towards rock, pop and blues genres because this is the easiest to process as we are surrounded by these styles all the time. I usually spend one part of the lesson going over certain exercises that will help you to physically improve, another part I spend on chords, and another part I spend on playing guitar riffs/melodies. Once you have mastered these things I then move on to scales, more complex rhythms and soloing.Show More Show Less

"My guitar lessons provide the student with the knowledge and technique necessary in order to gain a high competence in playing the guitar. With an understanding that everybody learns differently and at different paces I tailor guitar lessons to each individual student in order to ensure maximum learning pace by keeping the lessons and the guitar fun.
It’s a no brainer that people are inspired by different styles and people play the guitar for different reasons. Whether you want a career in music or just want to learn your favourite songs! I endeavour to find what it is that excites you and work with that energy to get you well on your way to becoming a highly capable and skilled guitarist."
