Guitar lessons – Grade 4 Student

Ryan’s background – where his guitar lessons started

I have been teaching Ryan guitar for nearly four years now and he has improved greatly in that time. When Ryan first started his lessons he was a complete beginner.  Since his first guitar lesson Ryan has completed Debut, Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3, and is now on Grade 4 Rock School Grades.

What Guitar piece I’m currently teaching Ryan

Ryan loves his guitar lessons using the Rock School Grade books as he really enjoys the diversity of the pieces. We are currently working on Dirt Wizard from the Grade 4, a piece that has its roots firmly in 70s rock and a riff that would make Richie Blackmore take notice!  Ryan loves the riff and we are working on getting his speed up and playing the power chords in time. We are also writing the solo for the piece which instead of using the standard minor blues pentatonic scale we have thrown in some nice harmonic scales too which sound great.

What’s Next for Ryan and his guitar lessons?

Ryan hopes to take his Rock School guitar Grade 4 exam in the next few months!  Good luck Ryan!!!
