about me | free stuff | my teaching | my blog | home
Welcome to Thorne's Guitar! I'm a teacher, musician, critical pedagog, student of social justice, and dad. I made this site to share what I know and learn and as a supplement to my teaching. As I create new scores for my students they'll show up on the "Free Stuff" page as well as all the links to other sites with sheet music and other resources.
I work hard to help people discover what their own musical goals are. Then I design a program to help them reach those goals, using the music, art, and science they love.
I use a student-centered and experiential approach so they can many times find the answers themselves, answers that are not soon forgotten.
I Challenge students in ways that help them deepen their creativity and grow their critical thinking skills.
Many music teachers have a standard prescription for every student, a one-size-fits-all approach. I create a unique program for every student because we each have our own unique set of challenges and goals.
Learning music, on the surface, seems to some a frivolous luxury. However, the things I guide my students to discover are tools they will carry with them that will continue to enrich all parts of their lives.
