Information about Ahmet - Paddington tutor
I'm here to offer electric guitar lessons. My qualifications aren't much relevant wıth that, but I can say playing/practicing guitar has been a obsession for me after our first meeting-which happened to be a bit late. If I had discovered guitar in my early ages, it would have been definitely the most profound factor to shape my remaining life and the only defining ground as to schools I prefer or profession I choose. Unfortunately, it hasn't been like that and as I denoted in my profile, I'm a civil engineer, graduated one of the best technical universities in Turkey as an honoured student and worked in reputable construction companies after graduation. Frankly, the first reason why I ventured coming to OZ-after quitting my job-was the possibility that I could work in some part-time jobs which might allow me to continue my guitar practices, which is the only thing which makes me feel that I've an aim in the world and gives me the satisfaction transcending all other things/studies/trainings/jobs. Any way, I think I better not lenghten this description of myself anymore.
Essentially, my intention is to put the guitar to center of my life again and by doing that I hope I could help some young folks in discovering thier passions and talents if it happens to be guitar. I believe every person should test and assess their abilities in as many various areas as possible before it's too late, so they may find out their true interests, which they haven't been aware of.
I took private lessons for some 2 years but this will be my first teaching experience. By the way, I don't believe that you necessarily have to attend private lessons for so long, since it's all about comprehending the systematics of your practice. Afterwards, you can create and follow your own way.
-We will follow some guitar methods which are complementary and commonly adopted in electric guitar tuition. Aside from technical stuff, I will be generous in giving some sections from contemporary/classical songs (let's name it, from metallica, pearl jem, acdc etc… I know how motivating it's) as a reward after accomplishment of weekly homeworks.
-I don't have a car, so you have to come to me and you'll need to bring a guitar and some relevant accessories of course. Meanwhile, there are cheap guitars for beginners that will serve the purpose. Proceeding step by step is better. Buying a Gibson wouldn't create a difference in your learning at these first stages.
-There will be one lesson per week, which will take up 1 to 1,5 hour at the beginning. We can increase it later when necessity appears. The Price will be 25 dollars per week (for the first tutees). I don't think that you can find cheaper offers. And I have to suggest this; whether you start to learn it from Joe Satriani or from me, it doesn't matter. I can be more understanding (like the willing and motivated assistant teacher compared to reckless professor in the university)
As I implied before, beginners who are eager to learn electric guitar as a whole are welcome, if you only intend to pick up some popular songs, I can give some guidance as well, but my preference is definitely not the latter.
-Thanks for reading.
