How the pick is held, where the left hand is placed etc. are all good signs of someone's current playing ability. It's also important to know the student's listening habits and encourage them to listen to music regularly so they have something tangible to compare what they're learning to. A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: I usually speak to the student about the music they have been listening to and we compare what they've been listening to what they've been learning. Next we review the last lesson and then we work on songs or spend a little time improvising in a way that combines what they're hearing in the music they are currently listening to and their past lessons along with new information. The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: Prepared. Has a clear goal. An ideal student usually has a style of music or favorite guitarist in mind to mimmic.
Larry has been doing guitar lessons for our boys for a few years. He relates well with our teens and their song choices. They enjoy their lessons and have learned a lot. Larry is very friendly and we love that he comes to the house for lessons -he made the transition to zoom lessons during Covid and has made it work seamlessly.
My son Gabe received his first guitar for his 7th birthday. After seeing several recommendations for Larry, I reached out to see if he'd work with a young student. They started playing really cool music right away, which really helped Gabe enjoy playing and encouraged him to practice regularly. When we were ready to upgrade to an electric guitar the following Christmas, Larry went out of his way to not only recommend a guitar, but help set us up with a package that included everything we'd need to go with it. We are coming up on my son's 10th birthday, and we've been so happy with Larry all this time. It's amazing to hear Gabe play- he has come a long way, and really enjoys the instrument! We love Larry's flexibility with lessons, appreciated his pivot to online lessons when the pandemic hit, and especially love how he interacts with our son as just another musician, and doesn't treat him like a baby. Gabe looks forward to lessons so that he and Mr. Larry can jam. Highly recommend LCB Guitar!
My son has been taking guitar lessons from Larry for 4 years. I can’t say enough great things about Larry - he truly loves what he does. He’s always willing to learn any song that my son wants to play so he can teach it to him. He’s helped instill a love for music in Ethan and is always so encouraging. He’s also very flexible with our schedule. I highly recommend LCB Guitar for lessons!
Larry provided guitar lessons for our 15 year old daughter who wanted to graduate from YouTube instruction to in-person instruction. Larry was a perfect fit, was a great teacher, and she still enjoys guitar to this day.
