Having a variety of experiences professionally and academically, I am very well suited to cater to the interests of my students. I am currently getting my Master's degree in classical guitar performance, but I often include a variety of styles in order to motivate your practice times at home. Whether you want really nail the sound of a Black Sabbath riff, learn to solo over a blues progression, or even learn a piano piece on guitar. I can help give you the tools to form your own musical identity.
About Seth D.

In my lessons, I make sure that I do my best to serve your interests. No matter what style of music you are passionate about, I want to help you develop that passion into musical ability. This is done through practice, analysis, reading, and listening. Even if you want to focus on metal or popular music, I will make sheet music arrangements of the music you already know and love, to better teach you how to read and interpret written music. Also, playing with recordings will often be a part of lessons to help prepare students for playing with other musicians. This holistic approach to teaching will ensure you are the best musician you can be, and not just another guitarist.

Even though I am just a few hours short of being certified as a teacher in public school systems. I did teach at two different charter school networks when I lived in Pueblo. At the Classical Academy I established my own general music curriculum and an afterschool program for students whom wanted to learn orchestral instruments.
