This video explains how “implementation” and “integration” are central to our teaching philosophy. Implementation means how to use what you learn; integration is how to use what you learn in conjunction with all the other things you know. Using hammer-ons and pull-offs as an example, rock guitarists can be show how to immediately start using this technique, as well as join it up with a technique such as double-stops.
A lot of people come to the school with “information overload.” The job of a teacher shouldn’t just be delivering information. A great guitar teacher should be not only a teacher, but also a coach, trainer, and mentor. For blues guitarists, this video uses the example of a blues lick and applies it to different keys, tempos and grooves.
This video uses the examples of acoustic guitar concepts of fingerstyle and barre chords to show that the process of breaking down what could be complicated and breaking them down into simple, doable steps.
For jazz guitarists, there are many ways to simplify your thinking so that you can really learn to be creative instead of getting bogged down with chords changes. This video uses this “boiling down” concept as an example to explain the ‘integration’ and ‘implementation’ philosophy that is at the core of our teaching methods.
