I teach guitar because music has brought consistent happiness, peace and fulfilment into my life. As music has brought me so much joy I feel it's my mission to share this with as many people as possible.
When someone watches my lessons (or has a one to one lesson with me) I want them to experience the same feeling of happiness and enthusiasm that I get when playing guitar.
All of the greatest artists and bands that I admire represent this freedom. That's why I teach their songs and follow in their footsteps.
I tap into the joy they've shared through their songwriting. It's my mission to share these songs. Making sure my students can learn them effectively and without feeling overwhelmed.
I believe that teaching guitar is NOT a profession for the ego. However, music often attracts the biggest egomaniacs.
That's why finding a musician (online or not) that can teach with care and consideration for beginners is important.
I don't want to cram in a 100 different songs and techniques into one video. I don't want to overload you. Instead, I want you to finish a lesson and feel motivated to learn more.
Each lesson is designed to be a "mini achievement" and inspire you to keep on playing.
You don't need to own 20 different guitars or talk about gear all the time to be a great teacher.
Guitars are tools to enjoy music. Granted, they're beautiful tools. But gear and equipment shouldn't be the main inspiration for enjoying learning guitar. This should come from a love of music and a desire to learn.
