Beginner/intermediate guitar lessons taught from your Philadelphia home!
I teach ages 5 and up the basic rudiments of rock, hard rock, pop, alternative, indie, and folk!
At the beginning, we'll learn the basic major and minor chords focusing solely on the first four frets, creating a solid foundation for things to come. We'll learn the theory behind what makes a major chord sound happy, minors sound sad, major 7th's sweet, and so on so forth! You'll also become VERY comfortable playing to a metronome! Feel free to bring me the songs you'd like to learn and we can work on figuring them out together!
In the intermediate lessons we'll begin working on different voicings, advanced right handed technique, picking patterns, scales, soloing and improv, etc. We will focus on the theory that applies to each lesson so you know why the things you're playing sound the way they do! I can provide excellent excercises for your fingers and mind along the way ensuring your uttmost comfort with the fretboard!
I offer half hour, 1 hour, and 2 hour lessons. I live in South Philly, but I am able to bike to Center City. If you prefer it, we can meet in a park or outside a coffee shop for your lessons! Fresh air is the best creative fuel out there! Spring Garden Street is the northernmost and Pattison Avenue is the southernmost I'm willing to travel. If you're outside those areas, I'm sure we could find a meeting place! :)
