About Derek McNamara

I find it important to conduct lessons that keep students interested in the aspects of music that they enjoy while offering information and material that challenges them to think about music/guitar in new ways. I find it very important to keep students engaged throughout the entirety of the lesson and to assign material that will generate a desire within the student to practice throughout the week. I believe that a good teacher must demonstrate patience and understanding toward their students since these traits will ultimately play a huge role in encouraging students to continue with the program.
