About this pro

With about 35 years experience of teaching privately, classroom and online all levels and styles of guitar, from beginner to advanced players, I feel that I have a lot to offer in the way of customizing lessons that suit your needs or that of your child. My resume includes 3 years of teaching at Musician's Institute in Hollywood CA and Atlanta Institute of Music previously to MI. Also touring the US for apporximately 4 years as a lead guitarist and playing local gigs such as club dates, cruises and sometimes large arenas. All this experience in the music industry as a pro player and teacher helps me to help you  on many different levels.

I love it when I get a student that's really interested!!  I can't wait to show them what I know. It's so fulfulling to watch someone "get it"!  The love of music is  contagious and teaching others to improvise and channel the music within is one of God's greatest gifts to us.

    My daughter loves the variety of music she has learned in the past few years. Her lessons are interesting to her and geared toward what she wants to play, both acoustic and electric. Miss Lisa's mastery of her instrument is evident and she truly seems to enjoy teaching these skills to her students.

    Lisa is wonderful working with beginner musicians! My son comes home from each lessons with new strategies every week! He is inspired to practice because she is so encouraging. He feels like he got the very best teacher there is!

    My daughter was learning to play actual songs within a couple of lessons. It inspired my daughter to practice and work hard because she wasn’t just focusing on chords in isolation. She has really improved at a rapid pace!

FAQs


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

The first thing is to ask what their goals are:  Do they just want to learn rhythm so they can accompany themselves when they sing?   Do the want to learn to improvise so that they can solo over blues, rock or jazz chords?  Or play classical and learn to read really well?

Usually beginner students haven't a clue to any of these questions so the best course of action is to let them tell me what songs they would like to learn and in these songs I can determine what styles a student is interested in develping. 


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

See above. 


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

$100 for 4 lesson.  One half hour per week

$125 for 5 lessons. 


How did you get started teaching?

At a local music store, before that I was helping friends learn. 


What types of students have you worked with?

All levels all styles.  When teaching at Musician's Institute I worked with guitar students from all over the world. I've also done classroom teaching and written a book on Music Theory that will be self published. I've also recorded lessons for a prominent online guitar lesson site. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I sometimes promote showcases for my students to play at a local club.  These events are game changers and the students really enjoy performing. 


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

Please check to see that they are qualified teachers. I don't mean with a degree necessarily but that they have studied and done a great deal of teaching. 


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

How long have they been teaching and what styles?  What is their educational background.  Can they play?
