Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work? Everyone is different. Most students come once a week for a half hour.
Where do you teach? Teaching guitar online & from home allows me to keep prices low. I’m 5 minutes from exit 71 on I-25 in Rye CO. Roughly 30 min from Pueblo & 40 from Pueblo West, & Cañon City. Skype, FaceTime, & Google Hangouts are available for out of town students or during bad weather. Skype has the best video quality.
How much does it cost? Your first lesson is FREE. Plan on staying for an hour the first time. After that, $25/half-hour lesson. Month to month. No contracts.
Can beginners take lessons? Absolutely! It’s actually the fastest path to mastery because students who never formed bad habits will only have to learn things once!
How do I get started? Call me! Every student gets a digital profile with personalized lesson plans, a customized routine, and online resources (E-book, videos, etc). To build that, though, I need to find out about you and your goals first.
About Guitar Teacher
Music is a language of the soul. It has allowed me to connect with people on much deeper levels than any other language could. I am convinced a master guitarist could explain the color purple to someone born blind. I am blessed to experience the world thru music and LOVE sharing that joy with others. When a shy, soft spoken kid stands up straight, smiles ear to ear, looks the audience in the eye, and rips shred I get so pumped. It’s like a butterfly just emerged from its cocoon!
In my early years of teaching (2004), I noticed the blues teacher’s students eventually started wearing blues shirts to their lessons. The metal teacher’s students started wearing metal shirts to their lessons. I knew then, I want my students to “wear the shirts” of the artists THEY like.
As a performer and technician since 1995, I’ve worked and played shows with Jason Mraz, the guys from Weezer, The Flobots, Filter, and countless more. As a child, I trained classically and then in college I studied all the great composers. However, I don’t consider these achievements to be what sets me apart as a guitar instructor. I wasted years of my life ‘noodling’ and not knowing how to reach the next level. After much trial and error, I now pride myself on constructing music lessons that teach students how to practice effectively and attain actual results. I hope no one has to go through what I did.
