Darrell is very personable and encouraging and is truly helping me achieve my goals. Great teacher and super guy!
He is so great with my boys... in just a couple short months they have learned so much. He has also been so flexible with me for soccer and baseball conflicts. Totally recommend him.
He’s an educator and relatable.
First I try to find out what goals the student has in mind. You teach students differently when they want to learn how to read music as compared to those that do not. If they want to play professionally, I encourage them to learn to read music and tab. If not, we learn chords and songs that they want to learn.
I have Master's Degree in teaching. I have played the guitar for 46 years.
Usually $30 per lesson. I will consider discounts for quarterly payments. I can bill monthly if needed.
My daughter opened a music studio and asked me to take some guitar students.
I have worked with students as young as 7 and as old as 65. I have worked with several children with learning difficulties with good success.
I had to learn a song for a student. He wanted to learn a punk rock song from the seventies. It was a trial but we made it!
Hire an older teacher.
Do I have time to practice at least 3 times per week?
How long will it take for me to learn a song?
Will I be able to make most of my lessons?
Does my instrument fit me?
