I've been playing guitar for over 12 years, during which time I've done studio recordings and played many live gigs . I also play in a 4 piece band. I'm friendly, reliable and patient. I'm well aware that learning an instrument can seem a daunting task at first, but with patience and a little dedication you can definitely achieve your goals.
This is my first time teaching guitar. However, having really struggled back in the early days I understand what it feels like to hit brick walls in your playing, and also how important it is to have a good tutor to point you in the right direction. So I'm very familiar with that feeling that you'll never improve or jump over those hurdles. What has helped me enormously is developing strategies and exercises whereby I can work, slowly at first, on certain exercises and points of technique, that with patience pay off and have helped me to overcome those technical difficulties. Ultimately, my desire is to teach you how to diagnose your own weaknesses; and once diagnosed how to remedy them.
My approach to music tuition focuses on the technical - getting you playing, and the theoretical - getting you understanding. Its more important early on, for complete beginners to learn how to strum some chords and play a couple of songs. As we progress, I will teach chord theory (how they are constructed), scales and arpeggios to help you understand your way around the fretboard and the guitar generally, in addition to how all these things work in context
