Private Music Instruction
I have given private instruction on Guitar, Bass Guitar, Lap Dulcimer, Hammered Dulcimer, Piano, Drums, Autoharp, Ukulele, and Mandolin. A private lesson situation is varied for every student and my goal has always been to motivate the student by custom fitting the curriculum to there personal needs and desires. This includes letting the student bring in a CD or ipod with their favorite music and then working that music out at their level. In addition, I teach them to read various forms of music including standard notation, Tab, and chord symbols. Besides reading music, I also teach the student to play by ear and to make good use of all the building blocks of music including scales, chords, and intervals.
