I teach all styles of music on electric and acoustic guitar, ranging from Classical, 50s Rock and Roll, 90s acoustic ballads, all the way through to modern Heavy Metal. I believe that playing music you enjoy listening to is the most important part of learning an instrument!
Rather than a restrictive lesson schedule I adapt each lesson to your needs week-by-week. As well as playing through the songs together we'll cover the fundamentals of guitar playing such as technique, understanding music theory and song selection. Especially for younger students I keep lessons moving quickly to keep students engaged and having fun :)
I like to prepare materials in advance based on what we're working on but I also have my laptop handy to get something up quickly during lessons if needed! When students have mastered the basics I can prepare backing tracks to play along to and share the files via dropbox for more effective home practice.
I use a mix of written notation, shorthand such as tab and chord charts, lyric sheets and playing by ear so that students can get the most out of each of these.
