The musical styles focused on with students really depends on the student, what they want to learn & what they plan on doing with their music. His curriculum can fit with any song, most techniques & any style (such as pop, (rock, blues, country, hip hop, folk) Jazz, Latin & intro to Classical), songwriting/composition, sight-reading (upon request) & vocal lessons with your guitar. Some other areas of focus are, how to practice, how to use a metronome, studio preparation, the four tools of improvisation, scales, all the chords & their inversions, jamming & instrument maintenance.
