Expect to learn the vocabulary for parts of the guitar as well as the amplifier. This class is cool because we get to talk a bit about frequency’s, the range of guitars, and how it pertains to the knobs on the guitar and amp. Oh yeah, and shred distorted licks! The class will require an amp, and I can provide one if needed.

He's a good guy.
I'm not young, and I'm hard to teach music theory to, but he was patient, and is helping me figure a way into learning important stuff that I find kinda dry and not fun to practice. (I'm a good player, but music theory is very challenging to me.)
Delilah F.
My daughter enjoyed the first lesson very much! Looking forward to more!

Great first lesson! He was prompt, experienced and patient. Also flexible with scheduling and how to proceed with the lesson plans. Looking forward to learning more!

As an instructor Fernando, listens and pays attention to what it is I’m saying and is very good at readying the tone of our class/session and can change things up/move the lesson in a different direction to better help me. Weather I’m just not getting it, or if there seams to be an exercise I get very quickly, he does not waist time in that area. He creates a comfortable space that lets you know it’s ok to do things with your voice that maybe in the past you where nervous to do or even told not to do. This little tid bit right there is why everyone needs to give it a shot, I would highly recommend Fernando!! I give him an A++ Rating.

"After my first 30 minutes into my Discovery call with Hunter I knew she was a match for me. She just got it! She understands the dynamics of cutting through B.S. that doesn't matter in order to get you to stay focused and on track towards goals that DO matter! After explaining to her a lot of my roadblocks and huge gigantic goals/dreams she immediately embraced even some of the not so fun experiences I shared and encouraged me to see them all as part of my journey. I highly encourage working with Hunter because what I think has helped her and her clients reach their own success is that she is a coach that works with you where you are no judgements or blaming. She can see your potential in you inspiring you even closer to your dreams. I feel more confident than ever that I will be able to achieve some really lofty goals through working with her and I can't wait to get even further into our coaching sessions!"

It was evident that her knowledge and expertise in voice combined with her passion made her an excellent teacher. Specifically, Holly helped me accomplish getting a dream lead role in my school's spring musical, which I know I could not have achieved without her guidance and support throughout the auditions and play process. I truly learned so much from her in a short amount of time!"

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

Many beginning musicians wonder, “Is cello hard to learn?” The process of learning the cello is not difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cello is not an instrument of instant gratification. It does require focused, daily practice time and a good teacher to guide you along the way. How far you progress with cello is a direct result of the amount of quality time you put into practicing the instrument. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …
