Meet Lucas, Your Guitar Teacher:
I teach students of all ages from complete beginners to university level guitarists, and have been giving private lessons regularly since the age of 16.
After years of practice and constant reassessment, I have developed a teaching method that focuses on personal expression, clean technique, auditory perception/ear training, theoretical understanding, and most importantly, personal enjoyment.
With a focus on having a strong grasp on crucial fundamental guitar based knowledge I ensure that the student has a firm footing in a variety of genres with wide technical capacity. At the same time I make it my mission to ensure that any given students preferred style is the focal point of his or her lessons. Through song selection, finger style and pick based exercises, as well as handouts and chord sheets geared towards each guitarist's strengths and desired capacities, I make sure that every student progresses with a clear vision, attainable goals, and a large capability to express strong musical emotion through their instrument.
I teach from my own private teaching studio in the west end of Ottawa. As availability is quite limited please contact me if interested.
"Lucas Haneman is a great guitarist and excellent teacher."
