At Home Guitar Lessons! Comprehensive Instruction for Beginners (Rochester, NY)
Well surely everyone knows someone who would say yes to at least one of these questions!
I've had the 'guitar bug' for nearly 13 years, and I can teach anyone with an interest in music how to play. What might be more important though is that I can help make sense of the guitar; giving my students an understanding of the instrument and the fundamentals surrounding guitar-based music. Whether it's pop, folk, rock & roll, heavy metal or even country music, I think learning the guitar is the best way to celebrate the music that moves you.
My approach to teaching guitar is to first find out what kind of music inspires my students. I then tailor a lesson plan around that specific area or genre of music; using it as a platform for a deeper understanding of music theory, the mechanics of guitar playing and ultimately, what it takes to perform a song well. When we learn the songs that touch us personally, it's so much easier to stay motivated and work through some of the "physical labor" required to get good at playing guitar. Younger people often have a hard time sticking with music lessons (I was there once too...), but with the right kind of instruction, learning how to play an instrument can be a rewarding and life-long skill.
I offer my lessons at YOUR HOME, so that the inconvenience of transportation to & from lessons is eliminated. I'm available any weekday evening from 5:30 onward and we can even make weekend lessons work if it suits your schedule. My rates are competitive and you'll find that I'm a very accommodating, flexible and reliable teacher.
If you're interested in learning more, please send me an email through Craigslist so that we can begin a dialogue. I'm happy to provide references and to give a more thorough description of my experiences and qualifications as a musician and teacher.
I look forward to hearing from you!
