WHAT MAKES HEATH WATSON'S LESSONS MORE ENJOYABLE & PRODUCTIVE FOR THE STUDENT?
Heath is proudly independent.
This gives him a chance to tailor lessons to an individual students needs and passions & work on music the student wants to learn to play.
With extra lesson content, help with theory and gear advice backed up by the official 'Heathwatson' You Tube channel & .com sites, students get support and input in a challenging way they can relate to anytime, wherever.
All beginner lessons are also linked to the course workbook and youtube instructional videos that repeat the lessons learned in class.
It is this approach keeps the student engaged and gives them a sense of total participation and control over what they learn, thus inspiring creativity and most importantly: stick-ability. If a lessons is missed or not fully understood, students can go back any time and go over the lesson remotely via Youtube in their own time.
"Heath's infectious enthusiasm for what he does really does engage the students. They enjoy the way he personalises the lessons for where they are at, and where they want to go with their music. He scaffolds and front loads the students learning with what the song should sound like and the technique required to create success with the sound.
Our band numbers have gone from "strength to strength" under the guidance of Heath. There is definitely the "cool factor" that Heath brings to guitar playing but he is always encouraging of students and puts the extra time in to make it happen for all of our musicians no matter what level they are at".
