Information About Kevin - Chesterfield teacher - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Kevin:
I began playing guitar aged 12,initially inspired by rock musicians such as the Beatles,the Rolling Stones,Jimi Hendrix,Eric Clapton etc but subsequently investigating all other styles of guitar-playing such as blues(Buddy Guy,BB King Stevie Ray Vaughn etc),folk(Bert Jansch,John Renbourne etc),jazz(Wes Montgomery,Joe Pass etc),country(Albert Lee,James Burton etc),as well as developing a love of world music.
I have been playing guitar for over 40 years,professionally for over 30 and as a teacher for over 25.I thus have an enormous amount of experience both as a musician and as a teacher.
I firmly believe that the best way to teach and learn is student-orientated/centred.In the early stages I equip students with all the basic skills/knowledge that they need irrespective of their musical interests and aspirations,so that their horizons are not limited in any way.Thereafter,students should take control of their musical direction by deciding what exactly they want to play.My role as a teacher is to help and enable them to develop as they would wish,by providing them with the knowledge,skills and techniques appropriate to their particular interests.
In order that each individual student can pursue his/her own interests as outlined above,I only teach on a one-to-one basis.
