My method of teaching is based on getting the student to play songs/tunes and introduce theory as it is deemed appropriate to further the understanding and possibilities. Technique is taught as it is needed.
I place a high emphasis on making it fun for the student as this to me is the best stimulus for learning.
Improvisation is taught also, as I feel that it helps one to understand how music 'works'.
This is based on 30 years of teaching in primary, secondary schools, FE colleges, University, and Summer Schools and community projects.
My playing experience is very varied, including Jazz, Blues, Folk, Country, Ceilidh, Latin (brazilian and Afro-Cuban) Pop, Americana...probably most styles excluding Classical.
