    I’m two lessons in and Scott has been great! He has a calm demeanor and is very encouraging. He has patiently worked with my mistakes making me understand the source and overcoming the obstacle. He’s made me excited about the possibilities as I progress.

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

Beginner:  I start by introducing the parts of the guitar. Then, move on to teaching how to make "quality" notes on the guitar.  After that, me move to learning chords and how to change between them.

Intermediate:  I'll assess your current ability, and then we'll move on to songs and styles "You"  want to play.

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

I have been Gigging close to 35 years and have "real world" experience in the ability to guide you to any level you desire to achieve. Wheather its setting on your deck and strumming a few songs, or performing.  I'll guide you in the right direction.

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

I charge a $30 per half hour and $40 for a full hour.. Music stores will charge about that much for only 30 minutes.  To me, 30 minutes is simply not enough to 1) not feel rushed 2) comprehend what you are being taught, and 3) trying out what you are learning.

How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching based on people coming up to me at gigs and wondering if I would teach them.  I've never lost sight of what its like to be a beginner or intermediate level player.  I like that it keeps me grounded and humble.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students very young up to 70 years of age.  I have flexibility built in to my teaching where I can target each "individual" as they make progress or lack of it.

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

Ask questions of your instructor.  Does he/she have "your" best interest at heart?  

Does he/she have the ability to be flexible in your training?

Does the instructor have flexibility in your scheduling?  Things will happen in life.

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