About this pro

Thanks for stopping by my page! I'm a musician from small town Nebraska who has been playing instruments in a band for over five years. My specialty is guitar and I strongly believe that everyone should learn an instrument. I have taught various students in the past and am currently the rhythm guitarist/singer for the independent band A Band Called Hemingway. I'm currently enrolled in college and will not graduate for a few years yet, so I will tell you right up front that I am not a college graduate. However I am very qualified. My teaching method is simple. We'll start with the basics, note reading, chords, transitions, etc. then we'll move on to playing whatever style of music you are interested in. In no time you'll be playing guitar like a pro! To contact me, shoot me an email at [email protected] or shoot me a text at 402-239-5182 and we can set up a time to met! All the best!

FAQs


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

Start with the basics. We learn sheet music and basic chords all while building off of what you've already learned. My goal is to get you to a self sufficient level so you aren't being strung along indefinitely.


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

Tri County High School Jazz Band

Doane College Jazz Band

Experience in independent bands

5+ years of playing guitar

Taught other students before


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Generally speaking I do 30 per lesson for one hour lessons if the lesson is one on one. If it's a group of 5 or more students then the rate is normally dropped to 20 per person.

How did you get started teaching?

A college professor of mine referred an individual to me and I've loved teaching guitar ever since.


What types of students have you worked with?

Primarily school aged kids, though I've also worked with young adults and even 25 years old and older.


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

Find someone who wants you to learn guitar, not a teacher who will string you along until you're out of money. 

Be prepared to practice outside of lessons. You can only cover so much one hour every week. 


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

Why do I want to learn how to play? This will help me understand the best way to teach you.
