    Very explanatory.

  • Kenneth Kerns

    I have never played guitar before but Ron was very patient in his teaching. He took his time explaining notes but kept it simple as to not confuse me

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

We have a no-cost consultation to assess the match between myself and the student to ensure that any issues of communication and comfort are confirmed. 

Once we have determined that the student and/or parent wants to pursue lessons then I set up a path for each student to follow. This pathway is adjusted as per the students needs.
