I help my students fulfill their musical goals through personalized lessons. I don’t force my students to learn, I inspire interest in music and try to foster everyone’s natural talent. I teach guitar, ukulele, bass, theory, and music production, please inquire below! Here are a couple of testimonials from long time students.
“As a personal student of Grant, I highly recommend him. He is the first guitar instructor that has not given me boring and uninspired drills that left me feeling frustrated and as if I wanted to slam my lovely guitar against the wall. If you’re looking for someone extremely knowledgeable that will make your guitar learning experience fun, then look no further.” – Natasha
“His musical background is a solid as it comes. His communication skills are impressive and refreshing and he proved readily adaptive to my needs and desires as a student.” - Irwin
*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, Grant has helped aspiring musicians of all ages to master the music that they want to play through personalized lessons based on students' backgrounds and learning styles. Lessons are paced at the student's comfort level while positive growth is encouraged as much as possible. Even absolute beginners can be playing their favorite songs within weeks!
As basic guitar skills are acquired, lessons will focus in on crucial elements such as maintaining healthy technique, reading music notation, learning music by ear, music theory, and stylistic elements of guitar playing. As students advance, lessons will cover performance preparation and how to achieve long term goals as a musician.
Grant can also help with College/Master's preparation to ensure that you have the best chance of getting into the school or conservatory of your choice!
