  • I would not recommend this business

This teacher came twice to my home and I never heard from him again. He just stop coming. I never received a phone call from him. I do not recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning.

Business owner response:
Hi Sam,

My apologies for the missed communication. I had fallen ill just before moving to Texas, and I neglected to contact every student before moving.

I felt that we had very productive lessons and it was great working with you. I could tell that you were working hard, which is always a pleasure for a teacher.

I apologize again for not making more appropriate contact. It has been a whirlwind move and I do not plan on this being an issue in the future.

Thanks!

Devon

But Your Guitar Life is. Practice and you will get better. Put in the time on a song, and you will know it. Give of yourself, and the guitar will give back more than you put in. Practice is always met with achievement. Dedication and sacrifice are always met with satisfaction and a sense of pride. Your Guitar Life can't be given or taken, only earned. But Your Guitar Life allows you to do exactly what you want, the results lead only to other things you want. Don't want to practice -7b5 chords? Don't.


How comfortable are you teaching beginners who've never had a lesson? Very Comfortable. With guitar as my primary instrument, I have trained a lot of "bass player for a night" players. I find that with bass, it's an easier instrument to become proficient at, but a very difficult instrument to master. How do you prefer to start off teaching a raw beginner? The most important question a student can ask is, "What do I want to know?" Depending on the student, the first lesson can include note identification, rhythms, bass lines, or just how to hold the bass.


While I'd love to provide a flat rate, my prices are based on location of lesson. The most affordable option is coming to my home studio in NW Austin. Discounts are also provided when lessons are bought in blocks of 4. See below for more info. How long will each lesson be? In order to get the most from each lesson, I think a time limit gets in the way. The minimum lesson length is 45 minutes. Many times, though, we get into a groove and it's best to keep going. I've had lessons go as long as two hours before.
