Ma'Jam Method Mentoring

Ma'Jam Method Mentoring

I was fortunate enough to grow up in a very musical family. Thus, music has always been, for me, a second language. When I started studying guitar, and when I study the guitar currently, it is a process of formalizing a skill I learned as a child. Herein lies the problem for many struggling guitar players; they are being educated formally before they learn to speak the language of music foundationally. Therefore, I approach guitar lessons in the same way one would approach teaching a small child to speak English; We start playing. If you take lessons with me you can expect to: play a lot, listen a lot, be creative, and learn how to learn. Th ... View Profile
