*** Lesson Details ***
I am all about the joy and beauty of music! I tend to focus on the sound of the instrument rather than the style. Can you play clean? I prefer clean players to fast ones. Can you hear a melody? Can you listen to music and hear the chords changing?
After 3 months you should Know:
How to identify a guitar and its different parts (tuning peg, sound hole, strings etc)
How to tune your instrument.
What a chord is and how to play one.
Simple Ear training, hearing chord changes
Simple strumming pattern.
After 6 months you should Know:
How to change chords.
After six months I think you really know if playing music is for you.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Steinberg UR22 interface.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have an instrument and I can provide the music.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in basic/ Intermediate guitar.
Also the recording arts.

Believed in Joe and kept it fun
We looked around a while for someone to teach our kindergarten/1st grader to play and sing... but it was hard to find the right fit. They either didn't want to (too young) or required 1 hour lessons (too long for a 6 yr old), or were just plain hard to deal with.
Noble made it easy for us, fun for Joe - and provided just the right blend of persistence and encouragement to keep moving forward. He really knows how to work with kids and we can't say enough good things about him... check the You Tube video to see what Noble helped us to achieve in the 7 or so months we worked together (starting from scratch).
