I have over 25 years experience of playing the guitar. I teach the guitar at schools in East Yorkshire as well as at a music centre in Rothwell. In one of the function bands I play in I play guitar and sing on a few tunes as well.
I like to teach to the student's musical taste as soon as basics are covered. Try to make lessons as song based as possible. I have lots of transcriptions/tabs to tunes in a wide variety of styles. Lessons are interactive as students can record bass/guitar parts to backing tracks. I think it's great when people write their own songs/riffs/bass lines and I like to incorporate improvisation into lessons as soon as students are ready for it. Former students have gone on to study at ACM (Academy of Contemporary Music) and BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music)as well as taking various music tech courses.
RGT and Rockschool up to Grade 5 guitar. I have taught both the RGT and Rockschool syllabus to a number of students over the years, with a 100% pass rate.
Reading standard notation
Improvisation: I use garageband, Ableton and Logic software to record students playing either their own ideas or covering a tune they have learnt.
The best place to have a lesson is at my house as everything is set up and ready to go.
