Sudhanshu – Guitar, Ukulele

Based on that I design my Classes with a Balance of Song-playing, Technical Skills, Theoretical Knowledge and musicianship. I think every individual has their own aspirations for music, which I always take into consideration when I set up Lesson Plans for Students.

Richard – Guitar

If the student enjoys the experience and learns what he or she really wants to know (specific songs or solos) then they will be more likely to continue with lessons for the long term. I try to provide only positive reinforcement and never talk down to the student. My mantra is “Set Achievable Goals”. For those who wish to learn music reading skills I use the Mel Bay guitar course.

Andy – Bass, Guitar & Ukulele
Andy – Bass, Guitar & Ukulele

First and foremost I believe that learning music should be fun and stress free and every student should be allowed to go at their own pace. I teach a variety of different styles such as Jazz, Rock, Pop, Indie/Alternative and various other genres. I want my students to be able grasp the basics and fundamentals of their instrument and to able to apply them to songs/styles they want to learn.
