    Lindy is a fantastic teacher. I have been searching for someone who not only understands the voice but also has a strong understanding of music. She is an incredible musician as well as singer. You have to see her play guitar in her Queen tribute! Plus, she'a really sweet and patient. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn release their inner artist.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Usually, students start off learning chords, hand positions, and after a few weeks, will be able to play chord based songs. I frequently check in with students to make sure their goals and wants are being met. If the student shows interest in lead guitar, we will switch to lead skills.

Students with me long enough will go through both courses: chords and lead skills.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Lindy has been privately trained with a variety of teachers including Julio Reyes (classical guitar professor at Conservatory) and Daniel Yarritu, an accomplished Bay Area guitarist who has opened for Keiko Matsui and Lee Ritenour.  Lindy has also attended music classes at SUNY Plattsburgh and West Valley College.

How did you get started teaching?

I perform professionally in bands for years.  After some time, my neighbor asked for lessons and I found I enjoy it very much!  I have worked with children for years, so it's a perfect combination of the two things I love.


What types of students have you worked with?

Kids, mostly, but I have a handful of adult students.  


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the teacher is encouraging. Adults tell me the same story frequently, which is that when they were little they hated their teacher and so they associated their instrument with bad emotions. Now that they're an adult, they wished they stuck with it. I never want a student to feel badly about themselves or their instrument. You should be inspired to be with your instrument, and I aim to keep that excitement going in lessons


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

There is no dumb question.  I'm fond of discussing students needs and goals, although I realize sometime students have trouble vocalizing their exact needs. I can help you discover different aspects of guitar until you find your desired goal.

It's also important to note that goals and expectations may change, and this is actually more normal than people realize.  That's why having a flexible teacher is so important.
