Strumming Patterns

May 13, 2011 Leave a comment

When you start learning the guitar, the basic strumming patterns will be taught. Examples are the 2 beat and 4 beat patterns.

Some students will get these patterns naturally, as they have good rhytmic sense. As for others, you have to be patient and practise consistently. Our guitar teachers will guide you patiently as you learn the guitar.

The guitar chords you will learn on the 1st and 2nd lessons are G, Em, C, D.

When you begin learning to play the Guitar, some pain and discomfort may be felt on your fingers. Practise playing the Guitar regularly, and the pain will go away.

For new students who sign up, they will start by tab reading and playing simple melodies. Chords will be introduced as well as strumming patterns.

Gradually, students will learn how to strum and sing.

For students who prefer playing melodies, fingerstyle techniques and plucking patterns will be taught. There is no singing involved.

Do give me a call at 97450740 or email me at creamfire@hotmail.com if you want to find out more.

Cheers!

Update

Hey there out there,

Currently back teaching Guitar and Ukelele in Primary Schools again. After a long while, I finally realised that this is what i enjoy the most, to interact and teach children. The smiles on their faces and the satisfaction you get after a good class is irreplaceable.

This time round, the lessons are more structured, but still having the fun and craziness of my classes. Time seems to pass too quickly teaching these children. And I dont feel tired at all. In fact, I feel more energized over the last few weeks.

I think the main concern for me right now is not to overstretch myself again. Time management is key to that.

Haha, hope everyone is having a great Chinese New Year! I will start to update this blog regularly. Ciao!

Reflections over the week

September 13, 2010 Leave a comment

Its been a pretty busy week with classes everyday. Personally, i enjoy teaching group guitar classes as you get to meet people of different backgrounds, attitudes, learning curves. Teenagers is my core area of teaching. In order to get them interested, you will need to constantly update yourself with the┬álatest music. Two songs I’m teaching right now are Billionaire-travis mccoy and Love the way You Lie.

The younger group of students-5-7 year olds are also fun to teach. Patience is the key for their classes. And you get to be a big kid once in a while.

Do give me a call at my mobile 97450740 if you are interested in picking up the Guitar/Ukelele. Really, hope to hear from you soon!
