Personal Statement
 

Harold Combess
Guitar Instructor, Composer, Film Scoring


PROFILE

I love teaching, and strive to ensure that each student meets his/her personal goals.

My lesson environment is relaxed; I feel that if the student cannot
get a little fun out of it, something is missing. I do, however, expect
my students to practice and to pay attention.

I enjoy teaching beginners, particularly young (8-15 year olds)
children/teens. A beginner has no bad habits which need to be broken.

Adults and experienced players are also welcome. I have particular
expertise in jazz harmony, theory & improvisation. I teach the
Lydian Chromatic Concept, among other improvisational methodologies.

Focus is on proper technique for all students, regardless of his/her
playing ability. Once proper technique is established, I utilize the
Berklee Series as a basis for instruction. These volumes are
supplemented by exercises, which I write specifically for the
particular student's needs. As the student progresses, I incorporate
tunes that the student wishes to learn into the lesson plan.
