If you are brand new to the guitar, your first few lessons with me will cover the following:

  • Discussion about your musical background and past experience.
  • Discussion about your musical goals and primary interests on the guitar as well as what music inspires you.
  • Note names and number labels for the open strings.
  • Tuning
  • Single note technique exercise, which will later become your daily warm up
  • Right and left hand positions and technique, including how to hold a pick or how to play with fingers depending on your stylistic goals.
  • Free Music Handouts
  • C major scale
  • An introduction to chords on the guitar and the theoretical structure of chords
  • Together we will decide on some short term and long term musical goals for you to accomplish while taking lessons. This will include choosing a song or piece of music to start working on right away, as well as a reasonable weekly practice routine that you feel good about.

Any piece of music can be used to discuss and work on almost any element of music such as improvisation, scales, theory, time, composition analysis etc…
