Information About Sheldon - Borehamwood teacher
This is how 4 referees rated Sheldon:
I've been teaching guitar and piano for over 15 years. This has included one to one tuition, over fifties group tuition and teaching in both primary and secondary schools. The past 10 years I've focused on one to one and small group tuition. As a musician I've performed in a variety of musical set ups including function bands, classical ensembles, jazz bands and rock groups. This diversity has allowed me to teach a wide range of students
As mentioned I've taught for over ten years now. I've been situated in my current studio for over five years where my lessons take place. I am a grade 8 classical guitarist. But much like passing your driving test I feel you don't really know the instrument until you've ventured well beyond the grade system level. I've taught a several schools around Hertfordshire including primary, secondary and academies. I've taught older retired students for the council and professionals too - and the odd celebrity (it helps to be located next to Elstree Studios).
My approach is really to understand the aims of my students and the type of learner they are. Every person understands learning in a different way so my job is to figure out what type of student you are and go from there. I will always cater my lessons for that individual rather than a generic lesson. We'll learn your favourite songs and solos or simply play some chords. I've also taken numerous students through the grade system and predominantly use the Trinity, RGT and Rockschool boards for the various types of guitar.
