Classically trained musician teaching all genres of music

I know how to teach guitar at many different levels. I understand chords and how they progress. I also know many different scales and how they relate to different keys and how to combine them to teach how to play a solo. Technique is also a not important part of learning to play including hand positions on the guitar. I am a trained opera singer and have been teaching voice and guitar for over 6 years. I have taught voice at all levels from elementary to collegiate. I am a positive and outgoing person who loves to share his skills with others to help them improve. I have a lot of experience [more]

Reading, Math Tutor with Classroom Experience

I have been playing guitar from about the age of twelve. I first learned by ear how to make chords. Later on, I played with others in high school and took music classes in college which taught me a basic knowledge of guitar. I can teach basic and intermediate level guitar players. I cannot read music notes, but I can read chord charts. My philosophy about tutoring is that it should be something educational with a positive vibe. Students today have a lot of pressure to perform in and out of school. We need to give our students help but also let them feel confident about what they do and w [more]
