TEACHING


Lessons by Kevin Russell

I have been teaching for over 27 years now and I get joy out of passing on all I have learned through my years as a professional guitarist.

Whether a student wants to play professionally or strictly for his/her own enjoyment, the gift of music is a wonderful and beautiful gift.

Although I specialize in teaching "Rock-Blues", Since I do have real Classic Rock pedigree I do teach other styles such as: Classic Rock, Jazzy Blues, and R&B.

Ear training is another part of my teaching. This is a great help to students wanting to be able to learn songs on their own. How to listen and be able hear the keys, chord changes, solos and so on. I can really help you with some basic guide rules to expanding your ears.
I can teach you "transparent listening".

How to play better "Rhythm Guitar"! Oh yes, the fine art of " Rhythm Guitar Playing"...This is where the magic can really happen for you. The wonderful world of chords and the use of rhythm patterns. A must for any player. Rhythm is King!

And finally 'soloing" in both major & minor pentatonic. How to play those cool 'blues/rock licks" and how to phrase them..I will help you with better note selection & better phrasing".

I also conduct workshops/clinics. The workshops have been such a great way for students to learn how to play “ensemble” i.e. together with other players.
I will teach you how to use your gear. How to get the cool tones from your amp and pedals. Also the knobs & pickups on your guitar.

I am very passionate about my teaching……

If you love guitar, then play it!
