My students grow a healthy addiction to playing guitar

About Doug F.

If you want to confidently play to your favorite songs and have the time of your life doing it, I'm the right instructor for you.

In short, my students think of playing guitar as a healthy addiction.

Throughout my music career, I've realized the traditional teaching method is the main reason people end up quitting.

Most instructors will teach you all the basics and then when you're ready, you can start to learn the songs you like..

But I do it differently.

The reality is that with the right guidance, you can go directly into the most fun part - jamming out to your favorite songs.

---

The reason this has worked so well:
-You'll want to pick up your guitar and play over and over again because each time you're
-having fun
-and getting better each time you play.


With my technique and properly set goals, you can grow your skills quickly and reduce the amount of time and energy spent on inefficient practicing.

What you'll learn is that most songs are based on a formula and you can crack this musical code with each song you learn, making it more exciting each time you play.


**The genres I specialize in are anything related to rock, pop, alt, metal, and reggae. **

_______________________________________________________________________

If you've already gotten this far, you probably have a pretty strong interest in playing - and thats all you need to be a great musician.

My daughter loved it and thought the instructor was patient and laid back. She loved that he picked out some of her music to practice with.
