Learning the guitar is a fun, yet, challenging experience. Having an instructor guide you
through the process makes learning easier and more efficient. The internet provides a wealth of information but can not interact with you and help your specific needs. Many guitar players get frustrated and give up. Getting the encouragement and expertise of an instructor who has been there before greatly enhances chances of success.
My style of teaching is founded on fun with the instrument and guiding students to real music situations. Many students come to me with an incomplete set of skills. These (self taught) players have several basic fundamental holes in their playing.
It is also important to me that students have a basic knowledge of music theory. This way, they can enjoy the guitar for the rest of their life. If you just learn to put your hands in a certain place to play a certain song, you are missing out. If you learn what it is your actually doing, you can apply it. This may be the most important benefit of a private instructor.

What you will learn
In my experience, over several years, I find most beginners are surprised the guitar is so hard to play. Having an instructor to help you past that frustration will lead to a lifelong enjoyment of your guitar in the songs you love.
This is for the hungry players. You will be given the direction to achieve a high level of musicianship. You will be challenged to reach your full potential.
Guitar Students Lesson Video Example:
Xavier G. is just starting to improvise. He has come a long way in a short period time.
Peyton and I started out when he was in middle school. When I met him at the first guitar class, he did not know a single chord. Four years later, this is Peyton. Now he is using the basic pentatonic scale to improvise over an E blues. As a guitar teacher, I am very proud of how far he has come.
This is an example of Daniel improvising over the chord changes of "comfortably numb".
Jan could play basic chords when I met him 3 mo. ago. He is a singer and songwriter.
Now he sees how good he is and how it helps develop his melodies.
Dan is a great student and even better cat. I really appreciate how he values the time we have. His music education has improved in giant steps.
