Guitar Lessons by Dave
My approach involves keeping things as simple as possible, guiding my clients to achieve gradual progress with their playing and strengthening their core skills. My programme is flexible to suit - I don't have a curriculum to drag out. We'll have fun playing guitar and learning new things.
I aim to strike a good balance between playing and learning - usually 5 minutes experience is better than 10 minutes of explanation. We go at your pace, and just so you know, there's no such thing as too slow, a steady pace is best - I don't run out of patience and you'll need some too, its perhaps the strongest quality a musician can have!
Your first lesson is only £10.00 and in part it allows us the chance to plan part of your route. I always try to teach in a relaxed manner - I'm keen for all my students to experience progress with their playing yet I understand that there’s no need for unnecessary pressure.
Lesson content will vary from week to week depending on who you are and what you want to learn. You can’t build a solid house without good foundations and likewise it's good to develop playing ability starting with the basic fundamentals. We work our way up gradually using songs and exercises to promote development.
Lessons really help a player to develop effective technique and avoid picking up poor playing habits. I welcome beginners and students of all levels to come and benefit from my experience and knowledge.
Currently I do all my teaching from home in my music room as it helps me optimize my lesson schedule. It also means you can make full use of the String Fingers facilities. Feel free to contact me with any queries.
