Ongoing, weekly one-on-one guitar lessons, individualized to the level and unique learning needs of the student.

Class experience

Learning goals will vary, depending on the student's individual level. Some goal  may include :
 Learning the parts of the guitar, and the string numbers. 
 Tuning their guitar, using an electronic tuner or the GuitarTuna app, or online tuner. 
Learning the frets and how the dots on the guitar can help them to find the fret that they want.
 Holding the guitar correctly and be able to strum with a steady beat. 
 Playing some songs, at their level. 
 Learning how to read chord diagrams and play the basic acoustic guitar chords. 
 Being able to play power chords, with the root on the 6th string and the 5th string. 
 Some simple improvisation, using a five note scale. 
The student will have more confidence about playing music and learning guitar. 

I have been an Outschool teacher since May 2020. 
I have 20+ years experience, as a music teacher and professional musician.  I have taught piano, electric keyboard, guitar, and ukelele, in both the classroom and private settings. 
I was head of the music department at a private high  school in Maryland. 
I taught private piano and guitar lessons at a guitar shop, for 5 years, in addition to my own private students in my studio. 
I have a bachelor's degree in music education, from Towson University, plus graduate studies in music education. 
Homework Offered
I recommend 15- 30 minutes of practice , about 3 to 5 times per week, if possible. This depends on the age, level and individual needs of the student.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Informal assessment.
Grades Offered
Amplifier if needed for an electric guitar
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Third Party Tools 
Guitar Tuna online guitar tuner
I will send you a link for the GuitarTuna online guitar tuner. This is the tuner that I recommend. It is also available as a free app for your phone. There is no account needed for this tuner. 
I will sometimes play a song for the student, using youtube on the zoom screen share. This will be to let them hear how the song goes, so they can more easily learn the song. 
No outside sources
