I have more than 15 years of teaching experience.
Instruments: Guitar
Genre/Style(s): Jazz guitar and improvisation lessons by experienced musician.

Friendly and informal...

Lessons can cover a choice of following (and more):

- harmony (important progressions, developing chords, voice-leading, chord-melody, building or increasing an understanding of mainly functional, modern and/or blues harmony)
- melody (learning songs, melodic patterns, melodic statement, playing melodically through changes)
- time (developing sense of time, rhythmic language, stating its great importance!!!)
- technique (deals with all of the above through scales, arpeggios, chords, picking, use of metronome, finger-flexibility, hand-coordination, sound, applying technical exercises to make music)
- improvisation (applying knowledge gained from all of the above!!!)

Newcomers to jazz will be carefully guided. Others with more experience can be specific with their needs.

I like to explore the instrument and let my students realize its potential and to enjoy its possibilities. Though teaching jazz also requires time spend on some theoretical material (particularly with harmony).
Ability Levels: Intermediate to Advanced
