Do You Want to Learn How to Play Your Favorite Song on Guitar?

What You Will Learn:

Beginners typically work on chords, simple songs, and melodies, and if they choose sight, reading, and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. I employ a variety of guitar method books based on student needs and preferences. I utilize trusted traditional methods and the latest technology to help students learn their favorite tunes.
