Feel Great About Your Guitar Playing
What Makes Me Different:
Here’s What You Get:
What kind of rates do you charge?
There are multiple packages available for different types of students. Price is an important component when making a decision on whether to study with a certain teacher (email me for a copy of the article “How to Choose a Guitar Teacher”.) And in addition to price, there are many other factors to consider such as how much fun the lessons are, how much the teacher motivates you to practice, how flexible the scheduling is, and most importantly, are you getting results. Even if you had a teacher who was half the rate and didn’t get you moving forward and having fun, you would actually spend way more money in the long run by having to start over with someone else later.
What if I have a crazy work schedule that interferes with my time available for lessons?
There are several ways we offer completely scheduling flexibility. Without getting into detail here, you can manage your own lesson schedule with complete ease and convenience.
What is your location?
We won’t post that here for internet security reasons, but keep in mind that distance is only one factor. If a teacher can save you huge amounts of time at home from practicing inefficiently, then even if that teacher is further away, you still save lots of time every single week.
If I sign up for a free lesson, will there be any expectations about becoming a student or high-pressure tactics during the free lesson?
No. The free lesson is simply a chance for us to explore where you are at, where you want to go, and whether or not we are a good match for each other as student/ teacher.
What if I decide to try and learn on my own?
Whatever you decide is perfectly fine, but ask yourself “How have I tried to learn on my own already and why hasn’t it worked for me?” and “How much time and energy could I save by being shown from a seasoned pro exactly what to do, how to do it, and what order to do it in?”
Here’s What Students Are Saying:
Much more value than meets the eye:
As a student, you get way more than average guitar lessons. This is a tall claim but we have no problem making it simply because the students get results. As a student, you get:
personalized support for how to practice the lesson content for the week. It’s never just “here’s your lesson, have a good week.” More details about this is done is shared in the free intro guitar lesson.
a wide variety of free bonus items that are used to reward you for milestones you hit, or simply to assist you in learning even when you’re not in lessons. These come in many shapes and sizes, and are explained more in the free intro session.
access to a huge library of supplemental material that can be used to reinforce what you did in the lesson or simply save lots of time in the lesson. Students very rarely have to wait around while the teacher writes things out. This of course also saves you money because we rarely require books to be purchased since we have all the materials you need.
content that is relevant to your goals. We’ve covered this before, but it’s worth re-stating here, because too many guitar lessons are the same for everyone. “Here, buy this book and we’ll go through it a few pages at a time.” Guess what happens after 6 months or a year? Yes, you finish the book, but do you really have a grasp on how to play your favorite songs, how to write your own songs or jam with other people? I cannot tell you how many students have come to me after years of lessons elsewhere and can’t play a simple song with me on the fly.
teacher(s) who are trained and who undergo CANEI – continous and never-ending improvement. How many other teachers in Ithaca can say that they genuinely work on becoming better teachers continuous?
innovative teaching methods. We use a geometric teaching method, which will be explained in the free intro session. For now, let it suffice to say it simply gets you way faster results and is much more fun than the traditional method.
tools with which you can easily track your progress. The longer you take lessons, the harder it can sometime become to recognize progress. All of our students know exactly what they’ve accomplished on a regular basis by using our Practice Tracker.
fun. There are so many horror stories of people who lost all enthusiasm for learning because of unsupportive/ unfocused/ negative teachers. Yet, there are so many ways, as you will see, to have a blast and rapidly improve at the same time!
Explore whether going further is right for you:
There is no obligation to sign up for lessons, so you have nothing to lose! And, you are guaranteed to learn something that will help your guitar playing even if either of us decides that becoming a student is not the best option.
