Hello my name is Kevin Glaz and I'm here to provide you or your child with guitar lessons! I have over 20 years of professional teaching experience and have been playing for over 30 years.
Lessons are tailored to the needs and desires of the student in a relaxed, supportive, and non-judgmental environment.
I teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced students on electric and acoustic guitar; and beginner and intermediate electric bass guitar.
Familiar teaching situations for me are:
- Teaching out of method books or other sight reading materials
- Learning songs with or without tablature or chord charts, charting or tabbing things out as needed
- Teaching the materials of music (intervals, scales, chords, arpeggios, progressions) and applying the theory
- Working on a particular technique (examples: finger style, slide guitar, developing speed, accuracy, and various techniques)
- Assisting in the students ability to compose and improvise
- Helping the student with their mind/body connection when playing (this aspect is often sorely overlooked)
- Clapping or counting with the little ones
Pop, Rock, Metal, Shred, Blues, Country, Country Blues, Bottleneck, Folk, Reggae, and Afro Beat are my specialties.
I currently teach in El Cerrito and in Berkeley, or at your home or business!
