While he is first and foremost a player and performer, Kyle has a lot of experience teaching privately, having taught at the School of Rock (where he is currently employed) and out of his home since he was 15. He also has experience teaching group classes/clinics. 

Below, you'll see some sample worksheets that he uses for his private lessons, as well as worksheets from clinics/workshops he has taught in the past.

Jonathan Kreisberg's "Strange Resolutions" Transcription/Lesson

In addition to transcribing Jonathan Kreisberg's solo from his song "Strange Resolutions" and notating it for both standard music notation and tablature, Kyle made up a short lesson that accompanies the transcription. The transcription was made in Sibelius, and the lesson was made in Adobe Indesign. The combination of these two elements provides both a complete view of the original solo, as well as a guide to integrate elements of it into your playing. You can find both the transcription, as well as the lesson, here:
