So you might be asking, why another guitar teaching website? What do I offer that is so revolutionary?
Quick Fix or Lifetime of Creativity.
I think that through my teaching that I have found that people often want a short term fix and so many teachers are forced to give their students classic riffs and the latest and greatest song turned into its simplest form so the beginner can play it.
This then carries on until the student realises that they can play a bit of this and a bit of that but they have no clue why it works and most of all how to be creative themselves.
I chose early on that I would teach students to be creative from day 1. Those who stayed the distance are still playing and creating music for themselves.
So there are plenty of sites that offer the quick fix but if you are prepared to work and learn you can have a lifetime of creativity.
In my opinion there are four parts to being a complete musician and they are:-
The level that you achieve in these four parts will determine the quality of your music.
I believe that being a musician is about being creative. To do this you need to understand the language of music and communicate it so well that you touch people’s hearts. Does your playing enable others feel things that only music can help them feel.
It is about being vulnerable and real and finding confidence in these things.
I believe I have the understanding to offer to help you gain the tools you need. I cannot do it for you but my aim is to encourage you every step of the way to think for yourself and begin creating with what you have at any given point.
If you will allow me to walk this journey with you I can help you realise your full potential. Will you walk with me for a while?
All the best Steve.
