Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have played Guitar since I was 9yrs old. I was taught in a traditional studio along with reading music tabs. I have Performed in Churches, Shows, and Benefit Singings over the past 16 yrs.

I have always played guitar and enjoyed it. I have taught Guitar for Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced Levels here in East Tennessee.

Teaching Style
My teaching style starts with learning the Basic Chords, placing them in their chord family, Learning all about Frets and their differences in sound, rhythm, and Basic Information about the guitar. We implement playing by ear,chords, and rhythm, after we get the basics down. If you already play, I teach different strumming techniques, hone your skills on your current knowledge, and Bar Chord Blending while playing Lead.
Normally it will take 12 months at 1 lesson a week to be a Great Guitar Player through my program. This required the student to do lots of practice. Some students progress differently and it may take a little extra work or less work to complete the Beginner course and become Intermediate within 12 months.

The Goal is to have the student completely through and playing as a intermediate guitar player within a year. This makes sure to see Great results as the student continues from week to week. I also.offer every other week for Adults Only due to their scheduling and working conditions.

My advanced Guitar Players will have their skills honed and be ready to play with a Venue. Those Venues are looking for alot more than basic chords. They are looking for the Professionalism, I can teach that skill.
