About Gary McNeil

Hi, below is a little about my experience playing. I have been playing guitar for over 13 years, ranging in all styles from blues to jazz to rock, from metal to classical and everything in between. I studied music performance in highschool, in college and at University and have progressed massively as a guitarist and general musician. I played guitar to a grade 8 standard and learned music theory to a grade 6 standard whilst at University. I have been in multiple original bands as well as covers bands, and have experience playing in front of large audiences. I am a very down to Earth, well spoken individual who is able to relate to all students and teach in the simplest form. I encorporate written practice routines for students to take away with them, to help cover and refresh what was taught in the lesson so that it is not quickly forgotten. I am able to encorporate technique, improvisation, theory, composition, scales, chords, fluency, songwriting, harmony, speed, timing and much more into my lessons. I give guitar lessons to multiple students, and feel like this also helps with my leadership skills, by being able to pass on knowledge to others and being able to explain things in the simplest, most understandable way. I have experience with 6, 7 and 8 string guitars, and am able to give lessons and provide knowledge on extended range guitars upon request. I have experience teaching people from ages 8 to 50, and will always find the easiest and most efficient way that each student learns and improves. I can teach at any level of guitar playing, from complete beginner to advanced playing with complex methods and techniques depending on where each student is at. I have been told I am a good teacher, as I am able to put myself into the students shoes and am able to teach in ways I wish I could have been taught. I am able to teach anything a student wants to learn, whether it's a song, a chord progression, how to improvise over backing tracks, scales, or how to solo over a rhythm guitar track. I break down steps easily, with handouts and other media to best inform and help students to learn. Nothing a student can bring to me to learn is too hard, or too easy. I always give 100% when teaching students and provide them with every tool and piece of knowledge needed to become proficient on the guitar. Techniques that can be covered in my lessons include but are not limitied to: fretting hand methods, strumming/picking hand methods, arpeggios/sweep picking, alternate picking, hybrid picking, economy picking, string-skipping, tapping, hammer-ons and pull-offs, tremolo picking, natural and artificial harmonics, bends, vibrato, slides and many more techniques. Music theory that can be covered in my lessons but are not limited to include: playing in key, harmony, building chords and extended chords, accents, scales, modes, circle of fifths, reading and writing notation, reading and writing tablature, scoring music, sight-reading, note choice, phrasing and much more. Testimonial from one of my current students, Daniel: "I have taken guitar lessons from Gary for almost 1 year and have gone from never playing guitar before to being able to play some of my favourite songs. He explains things well and doesn't make everything sound complicated and difficult to understand. He knows how to make things easy to follow and easy to remember." If you would like to hear more about myself, my background, what can be covered in my lessons or any other queries, please don't hesitate to get in contact with me. I will quickly respond and explain anything you would like to know. Thank you,  Gary.
