Beginning to play guitar can be daunting. It is not easy! But I have learned how to jump start the training. I also customize what I teach based on what YOU want to learn. You can play a song in 2 weeks! Then it only gets better! If you are willing and ready to put in the time, I have to tools to help you succeed! I also love learning new songs! No genera is out of reach!
I LOVE teaching! Seeing people come to that "ohhhhh!" moment! And encouraging people to push past the "ugggg" moments. I get so much fulfillment out of their journey!
Rachel is very flexible and patient with me. She loves to answer all my questions and tailor the lesson to what I need the most that week.
We start with a type of placement test. I get to know your goals as a musician so that I can frame the lessons for the next few weeks. We come back to this test to see how we have progessed, to celebrate the wins!!!
I have taken lessons on and off for most of my life, but my real training has been practice and experience! As a band leader, I've played with so many people and picked up so much. It may not be "classical" training, but I KNOW what I teach!
1 hour lessons - $45
30 minute lessons - $25

I walked into a guitar store and asked if they needed teachers! After my first student, I fell in LOVE with teaching!
I have taught ages ranging from 7 to 75! I have taught electric and acoustic, also bass. I am best with beginner to intermediate players. To start off with no knowledge and lots of excitement, then see the mind expand and the excitement grow! I love teaching!
Driving in the mountains! Arizona is beautiful!!!
Find someone you vibe with...if they push too hard, you will burn out, not hard enough and you will get bored! Find someone fun, someone who enjoys playing and teaching.
Think about where you want to be! Think about how much time you are willing to commit. A teacher can give you 150% effort, but YOU are the only one who can reach your goals!
