Wendy H. Peyton, CO

If you take guitar lessons with me, you can expect to be able to read and play notes as well as chords. You will be able to take music written for other instruments or voice and translate it to guitar music. I have been teaching guitar for 30 years. I use a variety of teaching books which also include fun pop music or what ever style that you are interested in playing. I believe that lessons should be taken every week as it keeps the progression of learning and interest going. If it is your interest to sing and accompany yourself with the guitar, I can do that for you also.

About Wendy

With music programs being eliminated from many school's education, I feel it is even more important than ever for children, off all ages, to participate in some form of musical experience. Being a piano teacher for over twenty five years, I have seen many benefits for those taking music lessons. Some of these benefits are building self esteem and confidence, learning to focus, developing mental discipline, overcoming the fear of getting up in front of crowds, not to mention being able to play songs that we enjoy. My philosophy of music is that you don't have to be an expert to be able to enjoy playing an instrument. It is not that difficult to learn to play piano or guitar; it just takes a little time and effort. I believe that practicing doesn't have to be hours a day either,

We Love Her!

My daughter absolutely loves Wendy! She looks forward to her piano lessons every week and she has learned so much just within a year. Wendy makes it fun to learn and is very patient with her students. We are moving this summer and my daughter is really going to miss her. Thank you, Wendy, for all your time, dedication, and patience.

Nailed it!!!

Kay has been great working with me. I am 24 and have been teaching myself guitar for about a year and then just got stuck, I didn't know how to advance or get any better; and she has been great getting me back on track and I feel confident working on improving. I am also taking voice lessons with Kay and have never done so with anyone before and was never in choir in high school or college, and feel much more confident in my own ability. She is very good at making me feel confident and working with my difficult schedule. She has also inspired me to get back into playing piano. I played for 6 years when I was in high school and she is helping me with my musical identity. Kay is great!!!

Eric is an incredibly talented guitar player with a wide range of knowledge and experience that combine to make for a great guitar instructor. My 8 year old son has been his student for the past 2 years and has progressed quickly and has an understanding of guitar that others kids his age do not. I have and do recommend Eric.

Michael C. Westminster, CO

We'll have fun! I'll ask you a few questions to figure out where you want to go and where we will be starting from. Then we'll get started on either a method that could include; chords, scales, exercises and reading, or just a few of those things. And, of course, a song! If your new at this, we need to start putting those into your bag of tricks. Whatever level you are, the song is supreme and we will use them to tell us what we need to do to achieve your goals!
