There are no two students that I teach the same exact way. Everyone processes and absorbs information differently. I find the weakness that the individual has and give the appropriate exercises to maximize the results. Basically I teach the things that you can't get from YouTube... a good teacher saves you time!
There are certain basics that should be learned by all guitar players, regardless of his or her musical preferences and tastes. This involves elements such as the songs structure, the scales that can be used, rhythm patterns, picking patterns, different chord voicings, proper fingering, theory, ear training etc.. Including some "boring" yet essential exercises that must be practiced to better your playing.
If a student is passionate about a particular style of music, I will structure the lessons to that style. Every student has different goals and I focus on the best way to achieve them.
I play on a world class level (check out my resume on my website) and have been teaching over 20 years.
