Five stars for Tim at Lincoln School of Music. Take a chance, you will be glad you did!
I focus on the student enjoying the process of learning the guitar. We will have you playing real songs right away! I like to think that I put the 'fun' in FUNdamentals.
But don't let me convince you. Watch and listen to those students who have something to say about the lessons:
I have been playing guitar for over three decades and teaching professionally for nearly twenty years.
I am involved in my local church in the Worship and Arts ministry for over fifteen years, serving in front of roughly four thousand attendees in a weekend.
I started teaching the occasional friend here and there for fun. This graduated to teaching part time at a (since closed) local music store (Paragon Music).
I realized that I really enjoyed spending time encouraging others on the guitar, so in 2007 I started teaching full-time in my own house in a spare bedroom.
Once I started having kids, I needed to move out and find a business location. I have been on South street for roughly a decade.
I have worked with students as young as 6 and as old as 70. I have taught students with Aspergers and ADHD.
Most of the students who walk through these doors are complete beginners. They feel overwhelmed with learning and I meet them at their need. We have a blast!
Our Summer Concerts are a real unique treat! We don't ever call them recitals (Yuk! Those are boring!)
We offer four twenty minute power sets of students. They can witness other students in various levels of playing, but don't have to sit through hours of dozens and dozens of students.
The parents love how quick they are. The students love playing in front of a relaxed audience. It's a win-win for everybody!
Ask questions. Make sure you know what you want from your teacher. Are you needing a lot of theory? (why?) Are you just wanting to enjoy the guitar with no career in mind?

These types of questions will ensure you are matched with a compatible instructor.
Keep in mind that a great player doesn't always make for a great instructor. Make sure the instructor knows what you need and can honestly take you there.
-Do your lessons have any structure?
-Do you offer any concerts or recitals for students?
-Do you teach only private lessons, or do you offer group lessons as well?
-How is payment(tuition) handled?
