Lesson Details

Blues Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I focus on fun and fundamentals. A relaxed approach to the basics is key for success if you are beginning guitar. Tuning, note naming, scales, melodies and chords will build the facility you will need to play the music you love. Classic rock riffs or strumming pop songs are fun projects we can tackle. My goal as a teacher is to teach you how to learn the music you want to play.
