For the past 17 years, I have been teaching beginning, intermediate, and professional guitar players weekly lessons on a one-on-one basis. Since 2008, I have also been teaching group lessons to children and adults at Pima Community College.
Since 1993, I have taught electric, acoustic, and nylon-string (classical) guitar to hundreds of students during more than 40,000 lessons
always tailoring my instruction to the individual--generally focusing on the student's strengths.
Why strengths? you may ask, And not weaknesses?
My answer is that there is only one way of improving on the guitar, and that is to play it.
I've found that by focusing on strengths, students stay more interested and more motivated and tend to practice/play more.
Beautiful. Due to the increased interest, time spent with the instrument, and confidence, foundation of strength and confidence is being laid from which it will be more productive to attack weaknesses later. It's sneaky, but it works.
Naturally, some viewing this site have weaknesses in mind that they want solutions to as soon as possible. Don't worry, I have many methods to directly improve every weakness out there and am using them every day to help people become better players and more expressive artists.
