Lee works with students ages 6 and up, beginner to advanced. He creates custom lesson programs based on each student’s needs. First, Lee will assess your ability, goals, favorite styles and more. Also you will be asked to create a playlist of a few dozen songs. Next, Lee will teach you the techniques, theory, fundamentals that make YOUR favorite songs work. Depending on the student this can start with basic fundamentals, like learning notes on the neck, octave positions, and basic navigation.
Next, you will work with chords, rhythm and timing, and basic techniques for strumming and or finger picking. As each students progress, we can introduce music theory with ear training, circle of 5ths, diatonic chords in a key, and “beyond diatonic”. This includes color chords, connector chords, and substitute chords. At this point we have a solid foundation and can proceed with more specific customized programs for each student.
Learning Theory and Your Favorite songs helps you apply what you learn, so you get the important connection and and application of those skills! If you are not sure about what those preferences are, Lee will help you discover this as the program unfolds. He can also make suggestions about song choices. Ultimately Lee wants each student to go through the process of choosing songs to learn which ones work well and which ones don’t and why! It’s like trying on jeans…they don’t all fit you the exact way you want.
This unique and successful custom approach teaches YOU the fundamentals, techniques, music theory, skills and knowledge you need to become proficient at YOUR favorite songs and styles!
