**Please note I schedule student to student and do not use an open Lessonface Calendar! Please reach out to me if you're interested in scheduling lessons!**
I will cater the lessons to each individual student dependent on age, current skill level, and goals.
Generally the lesson will consist of three main pieces.
Piece 1-Understanding chords, right hand picking/strumming technique and rhythmic playing.
Piece 2- Single note playing as it relates to note reading, improvisation, scales (pentatonic, major, minor, modal etc.) as well as using ear training to find melodies,
Piece 3- Creative practice and practical application of previous techniques.
Each of these will vary greatly from student to student.
