Everyone has the ability to learn. Do not let someone tell you different. It is either the wrong
teacher or wrong method for you if you are having difficulty. It is never the student.

Guitar is my first instrument and I have been playing it for about 8 years. I can get anyone started and have them playing in a month. The lesson regime will usually partake in technique such as becoming fluid and comfortable with chord changes and scales and repertoire where the student will learn the music he/she desires to learn. I believe in giving students what they need to become the best they can be. I don't teach based on a rigid curriculum. I teach based off where the student is as a musician and help the student achieve the goals he/she is reaching for.
I have been teaching and helping people on this musical journey since January 2011. it pretty much started out with me just helping friends become better artists and better people. I enjoyed helping so much that I thought it would be a good idea to share the knowledge even more so I branched out through takelessons.com. I can teach beginner and intermediate levels in guitar, piano, and music theory.
