Derick’s Music Lessons
I do not respond to quotes without personalized messages in them. Upon contacting me, please provide a message in the messages category stating basic information. Or skip this and send me an email through my website below! thank you!
I have been teaching for 4 years all different musical genres! From learning Rock tunes, to having a student accepted into college for music performance in classical guitar!
Lessons with Derick focus on fundamental musicianship skills as a way to foster productive musical experiences.
I have a personal focus in Classical Guitar, and because of that, can teach most other styles of guitar and ukelele.
Teaching is a passion of mine. I wish to share what i know about music with others, and provide broad and new experiences for as many people as i can reach. As well, providing expertise in refining skills and creating sharper guitar players.
Able to read music
