GUITAR LESSONS IN SONOMA COUNTY
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 and have taught students from 14 to 84 years old.
PEDAL STEEL GUITAR LESSONS IN SONOMA COUNTY:
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.
I also give lessons on the DOBRO, LAP STEEL GUITAR,
and ELECTRIC BASS GUITAR!
