Guitar Lessons

My private classes are fun, creative, and highly individualized according to the students abilities, goals and dreams. Students will learn many essential techniques of classical guitar, chords and arpeggios, sight readings, fingerpicking, theory of music and many of their favorite pieces. I also teach my students about the various styles of music, music history, introduce them to famous musicians, composers and performers as well as to help them to develop their own unique style of performance. In order to motivate and inspire my students I play duet with them, and encourage them to play with their friends, as well as organizing many ensemble and concerts. Furthermore, I always suggest my students that one of the best ways they would discover and strengthen their weak points is by recording their practices.

METHOD USED

for the beginner student(children), I usually use the "Axford Guitar Method”, which is one of the most progressive and easy-to-understand methods. It teaches them all the basics of classical guitar technique, with fun arrangements of popular songs that the children are interested in.  As for the beginner (adults), I suggest “Christopher Parkening Method” which is a great beginners method book. One’s this is accomplished we step up to the “Carolli Method” which is the best method for the lower intermediate students. The Complete “Carcassi Guitar Method” is a wonderful reference book for intermediate level guitarists as well. “Aguado” has many fantastic ideas about playing techniques which I have worked with my of my more experienced students. As for experienced individuals, “Pumping Nylon by Scott Tenant” Is a progressive method book for players who wish to further develop their guitar technique, which I suggest to all my experiences students. Last but not least, my students have always the opportunity to play several famous pieces chosen in accordance to their age, technics and personal preferences.
