The method I use to teach is called "8 Cycle Guitar." It is a method I designed from my experience in teaching over 120 students over the past 7 years. I do this daily for a living, full-time.
I specialize in teaching beginners with little to no prior experience on the guitar. I am very passionate about teaching music to others. I continually study and learn to enhance lessons for my students.
I teach intermediate players to get them to their next level of skill on guitar.
I teach from my home studio in Zion, IL and I also teach online through Zoom, Google Hangouts (Skype is available too). Online service uses free platforms (Zoom, Google, Skype).
I love teaching/coaching my students. I love seeing them progress in skill and witnessing their successes and achievements.
Made a new player very comfortable

Find a teacher who will not only teach you guitar, but will become a mentor and coach in your life, or the life of your children. A teacher who will ultimately become a family friend. Find a teacher that teaches full time as they are more fully invested in what they do.
