I try to build a solid technique relevant to the student’s interests, and then work on whatever style of music he or she prefers. I assume that all guitar teachers do this. However, no two students are the same. Some have played other instruments and have extensive musical knowledge, others are completely new to music. A child will not necessarily be able to understand the same musical explanations as an adult. Some people understand very quickly, while others are very slow, and have to go over things again and again. Their desire to play is just as important, however, as the quicker ones. My aim is therefore to teach every student differently, adapting myself to their personality, musical background and interests, and finding a language they can understand.
I am particularly interested in teaching:
1) teenagers from scratch, to ensure that no bad habits are developed, and to build really solid foundations for the future.
2) adults who have always wanted to learn guitar, but have somehow never quite got round to it.
but am willing to teach anybody who genuinely wants to improve
and is willing to practise.
