|Shane's Guitar Background/Approach|
|Shane has been teaching group and individual guitar and ukulele lessons for over 10 years. His teaching career started with Darien Parks and Recreation and has since expanded to New Canaan, Norwalk, and Fairfield Parks and Recreation Departments. Shane has recently added the Ukulele as an offering in Darien and will be expanding to the other towns.
My approach to teaching beginners is to get them to play the songs and music they like, almost right away. I teach the most basic chords, finger exercises, and how to read tablature. If my students practice they are usually able to play parts of their favorite songs in less than 8 weeks. Once they realize how approachable the guitar can be, many become guitarists for life. I sprinkle a little basic music theory into each lesson, and I believe that is critical for their development. I also introduce some songs to my students that I like because it helps push them to learn new chord shapes, techniques, and basic theory.
I have a fast-track method of getting you started in a group setting or with private lessons. I can teach you how to play songs from quite a range of different styles from Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Green Day, AC/DC, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, etc.
