I am currently accepting new students from around the world via Skype! That means YOU. I'm pretty flexible with time (Toronto – EST) as I do this part time when I'm not touring or on my off days on tour.
I teach beginners, intermediate and advanced levels. Most students I teach want to either learn one of my compositions or learn the techniques executed in them. After years of playing in my style I have designed a set of lesson exercises which I call the "Progressive Fingerstyle Method". I created this to help develop the technique of fingerstyle, slap harmonics, tapping, percussion and using them all together in a musical way. I have been teaching guitar technique, theory and composition all over the world for over a decade and taught many students with this method.
I don't just teach Fingerstyle though. I have a background in Blues, Jazz, Metal, Pop, Rock, Classical, Flamenco and Improvisation. Don't hesitate to contact me for any questions you may have.
" I devoured this in one sitting...couldn't stop! it's a Gold Mine! Now to go back and start all over again bit by bit! The percussion, odd meter, alternate tunings and overtones...Wow! You covered a lot of ground and in a very articulate, engaging and entertaining way. The Persian scales were particularly interesting to me because I've been trying to work with Indian music the same way. I must also say it was quite spiritually uplifting, from hearing your fascinating life story in the beginning to your insights on composition and self-discovery...this is so much more than a guitar course. Thank you so much for this Maneli Jamal...it's just Brilliant!" -Mathew Joseph
