Teaching Experience for Guitar

I have been teaching guitar and classroom music for over 15 years in Australia and overseas have a Masters degree in music composition.
I teach guitar to beginners and advancing students in a variety of styles. I teach music theory which includes notation reading and writing, understanding the function of melody and harmony and the combination of both when playing the guitar. I teach students how to play chords, scales, melodies, strumming patterns and how to accompany themselves with the guitar while singing. My teaching approach allows students to determine how much theory they want to learn and what areas in music they would like to focus on.

My program includes: Learning the basics - tuning, positioning the guitar, strumming and finger picking. Familiarizing yourself with the notes on the guitar, sound production. Reading notation (or tabs), understanding scales, chord progressions and their function within music. Learning to identify chord progressions by ear and playing your favorite songs on the guitar. Students who wish to learn how to write songs will be required to learn additional topics.

Teaching Experience for Music Theory

As part of my teaching at schools and privately I was teaching music theory which included notation reading and writing using Sibelius software, analyzing chord progressions and understanding their function with respect to melodic content.
Understanding key and time signatures, understanding rhythms and their function.

Teaching Experience for Songwriting

As a songwriter and composer of many years I have written many songs and instrumental pieces of which some have been published and performed. In my private studio I have worked with many song writers who lacked the theory component (mostly) in their writing approach, hence limiting their capacity to produce higher level compositions. I have been able to assist song writers achieving better results through working on their theory and musical arrangements skills.
