Approach to teaching

My teaching approach is tailored to each individual student. Different people have different strengths when learning and we will identify the approach that works best for you. There are a number of factors such as age, playing experience and the style of guitar playing that are considered when devising the approach to learning that best suits you.

If you are aiming to learn guitar as an accompaniment to songs it may be best to learn by ear alongside simple chord diagrams. If you are aiming for more complex styles it may be best to learn through guitar tablature, a really easy to understand notation method for stringed instruments.

Video recording key learning points on your smart phone is another great option that allows you to review your lessons in your own time and at your own pace.

There are on-line resources, instructional DVD’s and CD’s, guitar tablature books, which can be really useful when learning guitar. However nothing replaces personal instruction or compensates for the teachers direct approach to the learners specific capabilities.

Utilising these resources in conjunction with personal lessons may be an option that maximises your understanding, progress and enjoyment.
