  • Bart Boster

    My 13 year old son takes lessons from BJ and it is amazing to watch the way BJ interacts with my son and inspires him by teaching him with the music my son loves to listen to. After each lesson on the way home my son really opens up and engages me in conversations about music, playing and various instruments and I can tell he is excited and inspired to learn how to play. On top of all that, BJ is just an extremely nice and personable guy. He even makes ME want to learn how to play! If you are weighing your options between multiple instructors, BJ would have my vote hands down.

  • Calvin Osborn

    BJ is so good at playing so many different types of guitars. I was and am very impressed by his talents! Most importantly though he is a great teacher with a great attitude and personality to! I can’t believe how low BJ's charges are for his personal lessons. In my opinion you will not find a better teacher or price or person to teach you whatever guitar or guitars you want to learn how to master.

  • Camille Smith

    Very patient and took the time to answer all my questions. He makes learning how to play the guitar fun and enjoyable.

  • Nora

    We have been so delighted with these lessons for my 10 year old daughter! He is great with kids and is able to customize to her needs. He is reliable and responsive and plans ahead for lessons. We have been to other teachers and this is the best!

FAQs


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

Upon first meeting we will explore students past experience (if any). Discuss interests in music style, expectations and goals. Maybe there is a specific song they are interested in learning? I Will cover basic instrument details such as maintenance/tuning/changing strings etc  

First few lessons are (typically) teaching the students ‘beginner’ chords & eventually moving on to scales & theory coupled with songs or riffs of students preference which coincide with the lesson material.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

10 year old walked in for 1st lesson, no previous experience, 3 weeks later, my BEST student. 


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

Make sure it’s going to be FUN! it has to be a hobby, an outlet, if it’s not fun, the interest rarely stays, particularly with the youngsters. Make sure the instructor You are considering is up to speed with your musical taste and expectations.  Find somebody you can talk to and who can relate musical terminology to you in a way that you are able to understand. 


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

Do I have time to take this seriously? 

Do I have an instrument? 

Do I have the patience & dedication required to practice weekly lessons?  (Recommend At least 20min.3 days a week)
