Our first lesson is generally for becoming acquainted with one another and getting an idea of where, you, the student is coming from. We reach an understanding of you as a player in terms experience, style, interests and aspirations. From there we set our sights on a goal, like playing a certain song, learning to solo in different scales and modes, a certain style of playing etc. We then systematically build the skills needed to get you there! Before every lesson, I prepare materials and information for a topic. There’s always a game plan but we’re not bound to a topic if another idea comes up in the lesson. I send the student home with materials and topics to follow up on after every lesson. I take into account different learning styles and rates of progress to make sure that the lessons are as enjoyable and effective as possible.
