WHAT AND HOW I TEACH
I teach piano and electric piano, acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, composition & songwriting, playing by ear, and theory private lessons on skype from my home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Genres that I teach include classical, country western, jazz, blues, funk, soul, Latin, folk, rock, pop, and several others. I like to teach my students music that they want to play and music I suggest that will help them to become great musicians.
I ask students to send links to music that they want to play so that I can learn it then teach it to them. If the music is too difficult for them to play I am often able to show them an easier way to play it. Students can learn how to play by reading or not reading music - the choice is theirs.
I demonstrate by playing for them, help them after listening to their playing, and often play with them. I am very patient with my students while giving them encouragement and support. I teach them how to practice properly and all lessons are 1 hour or a half hour in length.
I ask all of my students to have a functioning skype setup that includes audio and visual, an instrument that is in good working condition, to be able to receive documents from me online, and practice regularly. Payment must happen ahead of their lessons through one of the payment methods listed on the rates and payment page.
I am available to discuss any questions that you may have through contacting me by phone or filling in the contact form on the contact page. You can also request a skype to call to discuss taking lessons through one of the methods on the contact page.
*All of my students also have the option of having audio recordings of their lessons recorded by me then sent to them as mp3 files. This has helped many of my students review and practice what they learned during their lessons! The recordings are not heard by anyone else or used by me for anything other than sending them to students and the lesson is only recorded with the permission of the student! I am also available to answer any questions, comments, or suggestions that students may have through my contact page and always respond within 48 hours!
