Lesson Details

Bluegrass Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Bluegrass is a little more technical than typical acoustic playing, the main mode of playing is often picking patterns. Picking patterns are amazing ways to learn where strings are relative to your fingers. Ed Sheeran has great songs, The Head and the Heart, or any song you strum to, you can also put a picking pattern on.

I write lesson plans. I know how to write lesson plan. You will learn something unique. I play every day. I'll put you on to my songs that I like to play with and we will also work together on our ear. Locating songs we like and what makes them great. Music just like ANY ART is an expression of you, life, passion, pain, we will find ways to communicate these things in constructive and educational ways.

Teaching since:

I am currently traveling and love teaching what I already know and learning about people. Music has ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS been a comfort for me. Something that I can do, and you can't take away from me. I have a goal that you will be making something that is beautiful, something that you can take with you.

"its not what you take, its what you leave when you go"

I would love to work with you, whether your fingers are still bruised from steel strings, or you can play me out off a lick.

I have been playing acoustic for years. It was a tool for me to feel expressed.
