About Vaughan

Vaughan Burton Jr
Vaughan
Music Teacher, Professional
Location: Lawrence Township, NJ
Speaks: English
Education: University of North Carolina at Greensboro, B.A.
Teaching Experience: 15 years' cumulative experience teaching guitar and bass to classes and individuals. Vaughan has taught previously at The Music Box, Farrington's Music, Creative Music, and the Lawrence (Ks.) Arts Center.
Teaching Philosophy: Patience is a virtue. I will always encourage my students to ask questions and will go over the material and concepts as many times as necessary. Music is an esoteric discipline; therefore, it is important for students to completely understand formative concepts before proceeding to the intermediate, and subsequently, the advanced ones. I will never cover concepts and/or materials in a cursory manner. I will always take the time to elaborate on and clarify any subjects.
