Intermediate Guitar

"I want to make guitar solos like 〇〇, but I don't know where to start."

"I really want to become a good jazz/rock/R&B etc. player."

"I want to start making my own guitar arrangements."

Let us help you take your guitar playing to the next level.

Intermediate students usually have experience with their instrument, but are looking to expand their knowledge of the guitar, especially learning more about the fretboard, as well as specific concepts unique to particular styles such as fingerstyle technique, funk comping, metal shredding technique, Jazz chord vocabulary, etc.

Intermediate students are also usually looking for ways to express themselves to a greater extent on their instrument.  

Example Lesson Flow

Intermediate guitar lesson example flow


Scale training - Training of various scales aiming for mastery of the fretboard.


Chord training - Exercises aiming for mastery of chords across the fretboard.


Sight Reading - Sight reading every lesson in order to keep notation reading sharp.


Ear training - Work on being able to not only learn tunes using your own ear, but being able to quickly play what you hear in your head onto your instrument.  


Performance training - Learn how to perform at a professional level.

"At the intermediate level, music becomes relatable to speaking a language.  With these students, I break down concepts through recordings the student may know, or recommendations from myself. I also work with the student to structure a concise but effective practice routine." - Ryan
