Michael B (Write Review) Midlothian, Virginia
I teach beginners, try to "tune in"to their strengths. I encourage them to learn simple melodies and chords and try to get them to teach themselves very recognizable tunes, a few scales:diatonic, major pentatonic...if they seem capabable i try to get them to learn House of Rising Sun or similar because it has all the basic open chords and one important half barre(F),. I encourage "doodling" and simple improv....even just 4 notes so they are creating music right away.
Michael B has over 8 years of music experience in the Midlothian area.
1977 B.A. in music Baruch College (City University of New York)
On Guitar I am self taught, over many years. Early on took lessons in acoustic e.g hesitation blues, Here comes the Sun....very basic classical which is invaluable to teach beginners
I am not a professional musician. My playing is limited to informal gatherings and songs that I write.
I have been teaching guitar to children (9 y.o) young adults, retirees who "always wanted to learn guitar" since 2007. I have had a studio, but I mostly went to the student's home. I am in the process of procuring a studio on Monuement Ave. in Richmond
