Learn to Work Effectively and Efficiently, and Learn to Play With Security and Confidence.
Dr. Todd Tipton studied with some of the world's greatest artists and educators, and quickly built the most successful guitar studio in the Twin Cities. He has made countless students' lives more gratifying by sharing the guitar with them for the last 25 years. He is newly relocated in the NoDa neighborhood.
Classical? Metal? Rock? Folk? Not sure? It doesn't matter. What matters is the rare opportunity to be given the same fundamentals and foundations that advanced players use daily to overcome obstacles. There is no such thing as advanced technique; all technique is basic. Whether one is a rank beginner or a more experienced player in a rut, this is the solution. At the bottom are many people that have tried to play music, but did not succeed through no fault of their own. Above that are some that can strum a few chords. And above that is a much smaller minority of players who have found some significant success, but have plateaued or found themselves stuck in a rut. This is because they were never given good fundamentals and strong foundations from the beginning. Eventually, their inferior technique and poor practice habits were no longer adequate to help them continue improving. Good fundamentals and strong foundations are always the solution. Paying someone to avoid the solution displays incompetency at best, and dishonesty at worst.
While my students learn many things, here is a list of some of them.
YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:
achieve a great tone.
maximize your time with effective study and practice habits.
always practice with specific aims.
build habits of security and confidence.
avoid habits of confusion and error.
develop sustained concentration by spending less time in the practice chair.
organize and balance your practice between repertoire and exercises.
play with expression.
combat performance anxiety.
play music you love with security and confidence.
built and maintain a repertoire with the least amount of effort.
lead others in efficient band rehearsals.
confidently evaluate music teachers.
This is the real deal. Stop paying high prices to subsidize the cost of noisy and stuffy broom closets while "instructors" with poor technique draw you pictures of chords. Guitar Pedagogy has a rich tradition. You deserve to study with someone that knows these traditions, contributes to, and develops cutting edge and current trends. Choose to study with someone that teaches you how to work effectively and efficiently, and to play with security and confidence. As a bonus, study with someone that organizes regular performance opportunities, socials, throws annual parties for your family and friends, and even puts $200 in your pocket for student referrals.
