Bachelor of Arts, Diploma of Music, Cert IV Training & Assessment
Providing guitar lessons to students of all ages from beginner level to advanced. Over ten years experience playing guitar and several years teaching.
Previously completed a Bachelor of Arts and I have recently completed a Diploma of Music and Certificate IV in Training & Assessment.
I specialise in teaching the contemporary styles of Rock, Blues and Metal.
For beginner players I cover such things as:
-The first position chords so you can straight away start playing songs
-Basic melodies and riffs
-Reading tablature or notation
-Pentatonic and major/minor scales
-Overall building up your repertoire of songs
For beginners I believe in making learning guitar fun by using examples and exercises from contemporary songs so you can see how these ideas work in real music.
For intermediate/advanced players I cover such things as:
-Music theory including the modes and how they work
-Building up your knowledge of chord shapes over the fretboard
-Improvising over chord progressions
-Advanced lead guitar techniques, eg. legato, two-handed tapping, sweep picking, alternate picking
For all students I like to put emphasis on creativity, such as song writing and creating solos. I will also help you to develop your own unique sound which I believe every guitarist can attain.
First lesson is half price. In this lesson we will have a discussion about your musical goals and set out a plan for achieving these goals.
