    Finger Picking Folk Guitar

    Bloomington, IN 47404

    I love teaching guitar and have taught for 50 years. I began playing guitar at age nine. At age eighteen I studied classical guitar at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem under Joseph Yerushalmi. I also began at that time to teach guitar. In 1970 at age twenty-one I opened ‘The Guitar Studio’ in Bloomington Indiana and continued teaching 40 students per week. It was during this time that I wrote my method book for acoustic guitar called “Fingerpicking Folk Guitar”. My students find this method easy to use, make rapid progress, and can actually start playing guitar a

    I teach Voice, Piano & Ukelele out of my home in Franklin Township. I have over 30 years of musical experience. Lessons are 30 minutes long and once a week. Some students choose to have a 45 minute lesson and split that time between Voice and Piano. I encourage this as it is wonderful to be able to play and sing but totally up to them. I specialize in beginners to advanced students and work on posture, technique, stylizing and sight reading. For beginners we keep it very basic and fun so they will continue to enjoy their music lessons. Most of my students are always preparing for some type

    I have been playing guitar for 20 years. I started teaching guitar about 5 years ago. I love to teach! It is such an awesome feeling when a student comes back, plays, and sings a song you have just taught them! I took lessons from one of the music stores for a short time, after 6 weeks I had learned the notes on the first string and how to play Beethovens, "Ode to Joy". I have to admit, I got bored and quit! Because of this I have several lesson plans that teach songs as well as chords and scales. Songs that you want to learn! It is a mixture of work and fun.
