About J. Brent A.

I've been playing guitar for over 16 years and still learn something new everyday! Guitar is exciting and I carry that into my students practice regiment. I like seeing a student going from confused to perplexed and then on to excitement when they nail a lick! I've learned the importance of listening to my elders and watching how they handle situations musically. I can benefit students by providing real solutions and growth to frustrations or walls they may be hitting musically. I use the students musical interest to springboard their actual musical knowledge and grow progressively beginning with the basics on to more complicated pieces. *** Lesson Details *** A student can expect positive feedback on the good they do but I make sure to assign homework to develop weaker points. Expect to learn new chords and learn scales in accord to your musical interest. To be really great at guitar you have to love playing so expect me to hit some licks with you and to have fun while the process progresses. *** Studio Equipment *** Amplifier, Chord, Guitar *** Travel Equipment *** I can allow the student to use my guitar or their guitar. *** Specialties *** Gospel, Rock & Roll, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Heavy Metal, R & B
