I like to think my forte is showing students what they need to practice in order to jump right in and jam with other people. To excell with my teaching style, a student need not know how to read music or tabulature. Also, absolutley no musical ability or previous experience is needed other than a good sense of rhythm.
I enjoy watching my students enjoying playing music with others. I've been playing stringed instruments for 61 years and jamming is the ultimate experience.

I like to determine what the prospetive student's ultimate goal is in learning to play an instrument.
I was an elementary school teacher for 25 years and have been playing music for over six decades. I enjoy teaching ukulele, mandolin, banjo and upright bass.
My lessons are $20 an hour--$50 an hour if the student hasn't practiced (which I can determine in 15 seconds.)
Have always been good at showing the basic steps in learning how to jam.
As long as the student is motivated, that's all I need to be successful.
Any and all Bluegras festivals. The North County Bluegrass and Folk Club monthy meeting and open mic jam.
Find a teacher who is interested in your goal and motive for wanting to learn to play an instrument.
