Learn how to play guitar from an instructor who is passionate about teaching
To inspire and motivate the student while working toward their goal, I like to incorporate their favorite songs, artists, and genres when introducing new chords, techniques, and skills. Each lesson is personalized weekly in order to stay as flexible as possible while still building on the skills from the previous lessons. This gives the student the ability to explore a lot of areas on the guitar as they continue to move toward their objective.
About Karney S.

I like to get right into the area('s) the student is interested in using songs and styles that they enjoy. I have a lot of tricks that can help make learning the guitar or ukulele a lot easier and more fun. In addition to the lessons, I like to give the students the option to join other musicians for the jam sessions at the Greeley studio. This is something that has always increased the excitement for the students. If you have never played an instrument before or would just like some new inspiration, please let me know. I would really enjoy the opportunity to work with you!!

Guitar Instructor
Mar 1997 - Present
Northern Colorado Guitar Instruction
I have taught students with a variety of skills and backgrounds both privately and in the classroom settings. Private lessons are always tailored to the individual student. Some subjects covered are lead and rhythm guitar, fingerstyle, song writing, and music theory. The most important thing the lessons are designed to do is keep the student motivated.

Other responsibilities included sound reinforcement, booking gigs, promoting the band, handling finances, and fronting the band. We played almost every weekend in Colorado and toured other states such as Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, and New Mexico.
