*** Lesson Details ***
I like my students to have a good working knowledge of the fret board right away and then begin use of chords and playing songs and having FUN while doing so!!! Then as they begin to progress learning chord theory, scales, some basic music theory, improvisation, soloing, advanced lead guitar,recording tricks and tips, and stage presence. I basically tailor suit the lessons too the individual based on age, experience and learning goals and create a positive and educational experience for both of us.
