My approach to remote teaching
Remote teaching shouldn't be a 2D experience.
My remote teaching set-up uses a multi-camera system so that I can always share the most helpful views and angles.
CAMERA 1: The main view. A direct view of the entire guitar playing posture and position.
CAMERA 2: A closer view of the right hand to accentuate the details of proper plucking techniques.
CAMERA 3: A closer view of the left hand to accentuate the details of proper fingering technique.
CAMERA 4: The sheet music view. Digital sheet music where I make notes and insert fingerings specific to the lesson and student.
Emphasis is placed on developing a consistent learning set-up in early lessons with each student. It is important that each student feels personally invested in his or her learning experience.
Multiple camera angles allow for closer attention to detail than is always possible during in-person lessons.
Musicians care about sound. I care about sound A LOT. My remote set-up uses careful microphone placement and selection to ensure that students hear the best I have to offer.
Well organized lessons and carefully structured, individual learning plans are the keys to efficient musical growth. Historical pedagogy research and a modern problem-solving approach.
