Marilyn W. says, "Very flexible lessons as I am very busy and change my schedule often and my kids always have something going on but Tom was very easy to deal with. My son tried guitar lessons at this local music school and it was a very bad experience. But Tom came and was different, he made it fun and exciting and now my son loves playing guitar." Read more

The curriculum is interest based, following the students curiosity, together we figure out what to learn. I Bring my 20 years of experience and knowledge of what is essential to being a proficient guitarist, and I will suggest what to learn at first, but I let the students pick the songs, and what it is they really want to focus on. My Primary interest is supporting each student however they want to progress, all the while offering my expert advice and guiding them to play with proper technique. Although having in person lessons is very important and helps dissolve the learning curve, I teach my students how to use the internet to teach the...

Children can start blues guitar lessons between the ages of 6 to 10 years old at the earliest. The best time is whenever they can hold the instrument easily and have the hand strength to press on the strings.

Adults of all ages can learn to play blues guitar with the right instruction and regular practice.

Reviews for Mount Vernon blues guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Mount Vernon area.
Jon R.
His teaching style motivates me to work on my own. During the lessons he always takes time to work with me on not only his plan but what my interests are , while still covering all necessary skills and knowledge I need in order to progress with each lesson. He is open to questions, and makes sure that I am not lost or overwhelmed before moving on. I am writing this after my second lesson with Tom and I have been consistent with practicing daily even when I get home from working a full-time job. I am glad I found an instructor whose teaching style works for me
