Guitarist with 18 years of playing experience offering guitar and piano lessons online or in person.

Methodology

I'm a very patient teacher who believes that every student needs to learn at their own pace, as well as according to their individual learning style and goals. The first lesson will assess the current level of playing ability, and identify goals that the student would like to work towards. For example, if a student wants to learn how to write music, we will focus on music theory and harmony, writing good melodies, etc. If a student wants to learn how to play technical pieces and solos, we will focus on learning techniques to improve their speed and economics of playing.

Background

I am a guitar player and music teacher with four years of teaching experience. I've been playing the guitar for around 18 years. I have studied three years of guitar performance at The Campus of Performing Arts. I also have knowledge of and am able to teach music theory, aural skills, and piano/keyboard. I've been performing live for various bands and acts for the last ten years.

I have been taking piano lessons for years and in the last year I changed to Callysta and I'm proggressing much faster. She's patient, kind and trustworthy. She is always willing to help. I love her teaching.
