Approaches to live playing
I have a great deal of experience in teaching music to a graded syllabus. If this is something you would like to do, I would be more than happy to take you through this.
The first lesson you take will be an informal chat about your aims, interests, and working style. It would be ideal if you could prepare one piece that you can play, as a way of getting to know your playing style and areas you would like to work on.
For beginners, the most important aspect of music learning is enjoyment. The course that John would design for you would be centred around learning the music you love to listen to, developing the passion you have for music into a passion for playing it!
Intermediate and Advanced
When you have mastered basic technique, it is important to develop discipline into your practise regime. The lesson style you will undertake at this stage will be centred on mutually agreed learning objectives, that we will develop on a monthly basis, continually checking our objectives against the progress made.
Examples of these types of objectives may include:
Improved theory knowledge
A specific scale or arpeggio
Drop 2/ drop 3 chord knowledge
