I have been teaching guitar for 30 years, in public and state schools in Italy and in the UK, and more recently online.
I have been teaching Jazz guitar 1, 2 and 3 at the City Lit College for 9 years, and guitar in several secondary Schools in London, and the teaching experience in London has given me a real flavor of what teaching in a multicultural society means, as well as the challenges that you may face as a teacher when educating students coming from various backgrounds.
My main target is to motivate the students through a shared experience.
I pay special attention in helping them to overcome their main difficulties (such as the hardship which might prevent them from getting satisfactorily results required to get results) especially during the early stages of their learning.
Throughout the years, I have developed a system of tutoring based on simple rhythmic exercises, guiding the students to discover, by themselves, the main principles of rhythm.
I have also produced some educational material, manuals in modern harmony and daily exercises for plectrum guitar.
The lessons are held in my Studio, 30 seconds from Camden Town Tube Station, or online
In 2020 I also did the trainig and achieved the abilitation to teach online through Newham Music Trust. Learning online means that you don't have to travel to sessions, so can easily fit lessons around your current studies and schedule. This means that you can have online lessons during your free time and even take lessons with experts who live in different parts of the country.
There are many advantages on that, and the mains are:
One to one learning See and speak to your tutor live through your webcam.
Shared Documents Share past papers, essays or documents with your tutor.
Screen Sharing Share your screen with your tutor and show them your work in real-time.
All the lesson will be done via Zoom.
