Overview

I am a Professional Musician & Record Producer who likes to impart training my most loved instrument on the basis of which I became a professional musician in the first place. I used to have dedicated classes for guitar before I became a session artist, I love teaching and that's the sole reason I still teach guitars even now. For me its more about imparting the best knowledge, most of my students are now themselves session artists and music producers in their own right, and we share a common brotherhood.
As a full time musician it is but my duty to share the knowledge to the budding and upcoming musician the tips and tricks of how to go about live playing and also to record and the challenges in the recording studio. In basics I focus more on the basics of the instrument, chord formulation, triad inversions, 7th chord formations, soloing concepts, ear training, chord substitution, using 9ths, 11ths, augmented, 13ths, modes and basic composition ethos of songs, etc, in advanced learning I focus primarily on speed soloing concepts, use of sweep picking, building of harmony, tapping ( one hand and two hand ) etc to name a few things.

Teaching Experience in detail in Mandolin Classes

Mandolin is one of the instruments which only the real discerning people like to study and play, mostly its the second most used instrument as a solo or a backing instrument in songs, it is a mixed bag as far as the complexity and straight forwardness of playing the instrument is concerned. Out of entire 18 + years of experience is concerned I have had only 5 dedicated students who actually completed the course properly and used it in professional recordings out of countless other student whom I convinced to take up the instrument along with the guitar.
