Samuel J Roland
I specialize in teaching beginners the fun part, learning to play songs.
Although l primarily teach the folk, folk-rock, protest, and classic rock of the 60s and 70s, l am happy to utilize songs that my students want to learn.
I suggest weekly lessons so you have both adequate practice time and also build upon previous lessons.
I charge $50/hr if you come to me and $65/hr if l travel to you. Most students are able to play one song by the end of the first or second lesson.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions by text first at 657/480-6211 and l look forward to helping YOU reach YOUR musical goals.
Peace & blessings,
Able to read music
