My name is Paul Grether and I take great pride in the attention, commitment, and goals of an individual’s growth, interest, and abilities to bring out their own independent creative talents for the love of playing music. I provide online-live-interactive music lessons to individuals of any age, gender, skill set, and special needs in the comfort of their own home through video conferencing (PC, Mac, Tablet). I schedule recurring lesson-time(s) and day(s) that will remain the same from lesson to lesson between instructor and individual or family. I look forward to hearing from you to start your exciting journey of becoming a confident player! **An approved independent vendor for Inspire Charter Schools of CA** Thank you Paul Grether
We take great pride in our attention to the needs of the student. With this comes phenomenal growth and not just in music. Another added bonus is observing students who go from not knowing anything about music to seeing them grow into confident musicians!
Paul is very patient and encouraging.
Paul is very professional, knowledgeable and amiable. I’m enjoying working with him through my embryonic musical stage. Highly recommended.
It is evident that Paul has passion for music. He is flexible and patient. He communicates and accommodates to our needs. Best of all, he is pleasant to work with.
Very patient. Had lots of tools to help me learn. I would recommend him for all ages.
What I typically do is set up an intake appointment to see how to best meet the needs of a new customer. It is there where I discuss a lesson plan with the new customer to make certain they are receiving what they want. Then lessons are carried out on a regular scheduled basis either at my home studio or Skype.
I have been playing music over 50 years
Pricing is quoted at the time of initial contact that ranges from individual pricing to small group pricing that includes labor, materials, etc.
Instructing/Teaching guitar has always been a desire of mine to share what knowledge I've gained to people who have the same desire of learning, leaving a positive impact on their musical journey.
I have worked with customers ranging from 8 years old and up; from individuals, small groups to customers with special needs and home schoolers.
One of my students who started with me is a single father in his mid thirties. He started with no knowledge of the guitar and is at the point of sight-reading and gaining in understanding and he is now at the point of correcting his own mistakes! Another student of mine started with me and she too is sight-reading and playing. She also started with no knowledge and the progress she has made is absolutely amazing!
Make certain that the instructor/teacher will listen to your needs! There is not a one-size-fits-all approach to instructing/teaching the guitar as every customer learns differently and at their own pace.
The main questions that customers should be thinking about are:
Is this professional going to have a full understanding of my needs as a student and be able to meet them?
As a parent, is this professional going to have a full understanding of my child's needs and be able to meet them?
Is this professional reliable and trustworthy?
Is this instructor the right fit for me?
Is this instructor the right person for my child?
