Acoustic Guitar Lessons:
The guitar is a highly versatile instrument and can be played anywhere. It is a good way of relaxing and a great outlet as well as a way of developing fine motor skills. Not only that, but it allows for the use of imagination and gives the potential to be part of an ensemble/band.
Some of the genres you can play in my lessons are Classical, Pop, Jazz, Fingerstyle and Percussive Guitar
Electric Guitar Lessons:
These lessons are similar to acoustic guitar lessons. Students will learn theory, technique, aural skills and will also learn about their equipment. For example, they will learn about pedals, amps, how to get the right tone etc. Students are able to learn Jazz, Rock, Blues or anything that you want.
Things Students will learn in class:
As a musician, there are 5 different areas that we want to develop. we want to work on our theory, technique, ear training, songs and improvisation. In my lessons, students learn to read notes and tabs as well as work out things by ear. They learn everything from holding their guitar right to things like bending, hammer-ons and pull-offs, sweep picking and shredding. My students also learn to play along with and improvise to backing tracks as well as setting up their equipment and getting the right tones.
Johnson Music School can tailor lessons to your needs whether you want to be a rock star, pop star, punk rocker or classical guitarist. You can choose a certain genre that you want to specifically learn from, or you are able to play a wide variety of music.
Students can learn one of two ways. They are welcome to have the standard lesson that most music schools will use (Adults usually choose this approach). On the other hand, they can use games to accomplish the goals of enjoyment and learning (great for children, but also fun for adults). We have developed a successful way of linking games and learning through using the likes of Pokemon cards. Students 'level up' and use their musical abilities to achieve goals and quests in the lesson. This Gamification process has seen outstanding results as far as students' interest in learning music, musical growth and practice.
