About Austin K.
Are you a beginner guitar player just looking for some guidance?
Or maybe you've been playing for a little while and you just don't sound how you want to sound. And you're unsure of how to get to where you want to be.
Or maybe you're a songwriter, who just can't seem to get those great ideas to come to life.
I've been playing guitar for close to 15 years now. I immediately feel in love with my new hobby and studied formally under a performing rock / bluesgrass guitarist for four years. At the age of 19, I won the Rutgers University talent show (Instrumental category) for an improvised solo.
I'm 29 now and have spent that time continuing to sharpen my skills and knowledge relative to the guitar. For me, it is a long-term committment to mastery. A journey I gladly know will never be over.
I currently perform several shows a week as a solo act, using my own written material.
All lessons are customizable to cater to individual student needs. But here is a small sample of EXACTLY what you will learn in my lessons:
- Beginner fundamentals (how to choose a guitar, how to string your guitar, how to use an amp, etc)
- All Major / minor chords and how to apply them in songwriting
- The most important scales and why they help your playing
- Fretboard wizardry, i.e how to play almost anything, anywhere on the guitar
- Tapping, sweeping and other advanced lead guitar techniques
- Improvised guitar solos
- Finding and creating your unique, authentic sound
- Writing your own songs
- Impressing your friends (kidding...but actually they will be)
plus whatever YOUR specific needs are.
See you in the lesson!
