Technique, scales, & chords: Electric guitar lessons with a 30-year experienced teacher
We will cover the fundamentals (technique, scales, chords, note reading (not for everyone), and as the student progresses, we will cover more sophisticated concepts of improvisation and performance with special attention to 'electric guitar' artists and repertoire.
About Phillip Z.

I teach music. The guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele just happen to be the particular instruments I choose. Music as a language, discipline, and art, is the goal. I've been teaching, performing, studying, composing, for some thirty years. I've studied and gigged in the classical, jazz, rock, blues, R & B, and country idioms. I've taught composition and improvisation to instruments other than guitar, (vocalists, fiddle, sax, piano, trumpet) I've taught all ages and levels. I currently pursue a doctorate of music in guitar at university. Students learn many things when studying with me. They learn physically how to play a particular instrument while learning music as its own language. Students learn how to learn, learn self-discipline, and access their musical expression, all potential life changing experiences. I am happy and excited to announce I am available for on-line lessons, and will now be able to work with students from all over the world, regardless of distance or location! *** Lesson Details *** I am laid back, but at the same time very goal directed. I like to do technique and/or vocabulary, note reading, and songs every lesson. After six months students are able to to 'jam', (improvise over chord changes such as the blues). They are well on their way to becoming literate, probably a third way through the first book. They probably can play a half dozen songs well, and are starting to strum (comp) chord progressions in a musically rhythmic way. They may even have played in a couple concerts by then. *** Studio Equipment *** Office studio w/ guitar, bass, amps, and seating for parents, computer with skype capability. *** Travel Equipment *** I bring my guitar and writing tools, extra picks, extra paper etc. Students provide their own instrument, method book, staff paper, notebook paper. Hopefully they have a music stand and their own guitar picks and other items relevant for the study of their instrument. *** Specialties *** Classical, jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, theory/composition, improvisation
