GUITAR LESSONS
WITH ROBERT NEWTON

Robert teaches beginning to advanced guitar students.

Beginners will work on basic technique, reading, note playing, chord strumming, and rock riffs. Beginners who practice very diligently will be able to work on some stylistic songs/techniques of their choosing.

Intermediate students will work on reading in higher positions, expanding chord vocabulary, music theory, more difficult rock riffs, and stylistic techniques/songs of their choosing.

Advanced students will work on reading in any and all positions, music theory, complex riffs, and advanced techniques such as chord/melody playing and improvisation. Many advanced students will specialize in a particular style of guitar playing that will inform the lesson.

Progress on an instrument is relative to how much a student practices. Students who wish to progress quickly should expect to maintain a daily practice schedule. Practice sessions don't necessarily need to be long. 20 minutes a day can go a lot farther than 140 minutes split up between two days of the week. It is especially important for beginners to play every day so they can build up the proper strength, coordination, and flexibility in their hands.
