I am a professional musician with a career spanning over 40 years (touring and studio work), and 30+ years teaching music, including college level classes. What do you want to learn? How far you go is up to you! *** Lesson Details *** BEGINNING students start with the fundamentals, what you must know in order to begin playing songs, all the right ingredients to create a solid foundation. You will be encouraged to study and to venture into the unknown, using what you're learning as a springboard to discover new things. INTERMEDIATE & ADVANCED players will be assessed on knowledge and abilities; areas of struggle and what is desired to be learned. Within a couple weeks, you will reap the benefits with new ideas bubbling to the surface moving you closer to your goals, with emphasis that short term goals are important as well. Everyone learns at a different pace. But with patience and persistence, if you do the work, there will be results that can be measured, and you will achieve success! I offer distance learning via Take Lessons video or Skype for Guitar lessons and employ multiple camera angles so you see my strumming hand and my fretting hand at the same time. I also feature video lessons on various topics in the Live Studio as well. You have two ways to learn from me! *** Specialties *** Having played many styles over the years, I am able to play in most of the popular music styles. All music is based on the same fundamental things. It's how they are used that defines a given style.

I took lessons about 40 years ago from other teachers, not sure what I was expecting. However Geoff far exceeded whatever they were. Very knowledgeable, an excellent teacher.
My son had a great first lesson with Geoff. He was kind and patient but also very knowledgeable.
"It was kind of hard but fun!" My 9 year old left saying, "now I finally know how to learn how to play from sheet music!" Geoff is patient and knowledgeable.
