Hello musicians! Join me online for some fun, adventurous lessons where we will explore popular songs and build the skills necessary to play them. It is my goal to teach you the basics and necessities you will need to play the music that you want!
About the Lessons
I have a tried and true method I use to get students to be able to play with ease and comfort as fast as possible. There are certain skills and techniques required to play even the simplest songs and I use a method that gradually guides students through these skills and builds and expands every week to get players to the point where they can start learning songs themselves without worrying about making common mistakes which may hinder them from being able to perform the music they wish to play.
The majority of popular music out there really isnt that difficult to play, but what I keep seeing in guitarists is a lack of fundamentals that simply make a barrier to ever being able to move beyond, and its always a case of improper technique and poor finger movements. So I designed a method that will give students all the basics and reinforce it along the way with real world popular songs they can play with ease and have fun on the journey.
Theres nothing worse than trying to master big 5 or 6 strings chords right at the beginning and getting frustrated because they are just too hard, so I avoid this frustration by easing students into these chords one string at a time and build up the skill to change chords quickly and efficiently, and once this is accomplished the sky is the limit! There are millions of songs you can actually play with a very small number of chords, and my goal is to get you there as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Private: $25 for 30 minute lesson once per week
Looking forward to helping with your musical journey!
A Little About Me
Ive been very fortunate to have a career in music most of my adult life. Ive been playing guitar with The Odds since 2007, play with my own solo project and also compose music for video games. I taught guitar at Tom Lee Music in Vancouver and Richmond for 10 years and have taught privately total over 25 years. I took classical piano lessons as a kid and completed Grade 9 RCM as well as Level 2 Music Theory Rudiments. Ive been composing music for video games and game developers for about 10 years and have released a few solo albums of mostly rock music. Ive played in many various bands since I was in Music College and have learned probably about 2,000 songs in that time. I would love to share my knowledge of all these things with you and hopefully inspire you to follow your musical dreams wherever they may lead you!
