GUITAR AND PEDAL STEEL INSTRUCTION

GUITAR LESSONS

Music is about having fun.  It is about communication and conversation.

My teaching style centers around what YOU want to learn.  We work with songs and styles that appeal to YOU.  I will not teach you Heavy Metal if you want to learn Folk, and vice-versa.  

I eventually ask all my students to bring me in a c.d. or playlist of the music they love and we work with that.  You will be AMAZED at how fast you are playing your favorite songs and styles.

I have a great set up to record the lessons for you to use at home to study.

All students will learn some basic music theory so as to be able to communicate about the instrument intelligently.... And advanced students will have the opportunity to learn as much theory as interests them.  

If you have been playing for a while I will take what you know and give you new things to work into your playing NOW.  I am extremely patient! 

I accept payment in cash, check, PayPal, Venmo, or Apple Pay!

PEDAL STEEL GUITAR LESSONS

YennePortraits-0373

Due to setup time and breakdown the Steel Guitar lessons will generally be 1 hour in length minimum. Areas of focus include right hand technique, chord shapes and movement, “classic phrases”, volume pedal technique, chord substitution, etc.  I teach in the E9 tuning.  Since I get students from all across Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area we can always arrange a longer lesson if you are coming from afar.


FACETIME OR SKYPE LESSONS!

Now offering lessons from afar on Facetime and Skype.  (As long as your connection is good)  In person is always best but I realized that some folks are far away and need some knowledge.


I also give lessons on the DOBRO, LAP STEEL GUITAR,
