|Sound Theory Studio is what I call my instructional program. I came up with this name to describe my philosophy that to become a great guitarist requires equal understanding of both playing technique and music theory knowledge, and I teach with emphasis to both areas. Many guitar instructors teach technique almost entirely, including how to play popular songs, "riff" ideas, building speed, etc. There is nothing wrong with that per say, but how can you apply those concepts of technique without an understanding of music? What good is it to learn to play quickly but have no idea how to apply that technique to a song? My philosophy can be described by the old saying "knowledge is power". Yes playing skill is important, but the understanding of what to do, not just how to do it, is easily as important. Therefor lessons with me will always include not just the how, but also the why. The studio itself is well equipped, very spacious, and quiet. You'll notice at many guitar stores the quality of the lessons may be good but the space of the lesson room and the noise level leave a lot to be desired, this is why I started my own lesson studio so I could teach my students one on one in a much nicer environment that is noise free and comfortable.|
Learning guitar is an exciting journey and there are many things to consider when choosing the right teacher, and the right place, to learn. |
