Betty is an excellent instructor. She makes learning exciting and practical. With no guitar experience, I've learned basic guitar chords, a blues chord progression, and pentatonic scales, in only 3 weeks. Which set the foundation for me to began learning my first guitar song. Betty is a real musician, and her passion for the craft will inspire you to want to learn and become better. If you want to learn from the best, you want to learn from Betty.
