I welcome learners of all identities and backgrounds into my classes. This is a beginner to intermediate class. I will asses the student's level and give them material that matches their skill and experience. This is a one time class that you can take as many times as you like. If you take the class again, we will continue where we left off in the last class. Depending on the student's age, we will learn a simple riff or chord progression on the guitar.

The student will learn some guitar songs and techniques that are appropriate for their level of playing. They will hold the guitar correctly and be able to strum with a steady beat. Students will be able to play some songs, at their playing level. Depending on the student's age and level, they will learn how to read chord diagrams and play the basic acoustic guitar chords. Depending on the age and level of the student, we may do a 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.
No homework is required. If we learn any songs, depending on the student's level, I will post the song sheets in the classroom.

20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
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.
