Classical Guitar

Guitar Lessons

All ages are welcome. Most students will begin with the Aaron Shearer method for guitar (Classical players), or the Mel Bay method, for those that wish a more contemporary approach. All students MUST learn from a progressive method, developing musical literacy.

Lesson cancellations:

24 hrs notice must be given, in order to receive credit for a missed lesson. Lessons are paid monthly in advance to reserve the time slots, or in advance of term or the whole year. The lesson “season” is in step with the school year: September to June, with a student recital in late June. Students preparing for any RCM examination in August, may continue lessons during the summer.

I can (and will), help players to play “by ear”, however when you teach someone to read well, they ultimately are able to teach themselves and can much more easily trace their own progress. Basic fundamentals in proper playing technique are also covered. I also try to help students find repertoire that they will enjoy playing and express well, this is also a fundamental in making music!
