The guitar is the most popular instrument to learn, and it is indisputably at the heart of country music. You'll learn some basic exercises to develop core skills, quickly mastering the basic "cowboy chords" that form the backbone of most country songs, and soon you'll find yourself moving smoothly between chords without missing a beat. Building on that foundation, you'll go from boom-chick rhythm strums to learning fingerpicking "banjo rolls," melodic riffs and fills, and alternate chord fingerings to master the whole fretboard. And woven into the practical lessons, you'll also learn practical elements of music theory including harmony and how to transpose to different keys. I'm often asked if you need to read music to learn guitar, and while it can be useful for advanced students, it is not necessary for beginners, and I don't place a lot of emphasis on it. While my approach is grass-roots, you'll learn to "work smarter, not harder," use scientifically-based learning techniques to train your brain and build "muscle memory." I believe that playing music should be enjoyable, and you should also be able to have a lot of fun in the process of learning it! Of course, it's important to devote regular time to practice in between lessons to make steady progress. This effort will bring its own reward as you start playing with greater ease of expression, and your self-motivation will help you gain momentum. I look forward to working with you and seeing your progress as you unfold your potential!
