What Makes Our Instruction Different:
Here’s What You Get:
How much do you charge?
There are multiple packages available for different types of students. Price is of course an important component when making a decision on whether to study with a certain teacher. However, there are many other factors to consider. The teacher should make the lessons fun. He/ she should motivate you to practice. The scheduling should be flexible and easy. The most important of all, of course, is that you should be quickly and easily getting results. See my articles below “The High-Cost of Cheap Guitar Lessons.”
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. You can manage your own lesson schedule with complete ease and convenience.
Where are you located?
We won’t post that here for internet security reasons, but keep in mind that distance is only one factor. When the teacher helps you manage your time by practicing inefficiently, that is the most time-saving factor rather than the commuting distance.
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 you are a good match for the school.
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?” “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?” See my article below: “The Truth About Trying to Learn Guitar Without a Teacher.”
Here’s What Students Are Saying:
Much more value than meets the eye:
As a student, you get way more than average guitar lessons. 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.” We can discuss this more in your 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. These come in many shapes and sizes, and you can learn more about them in the complementary consultation.
access to a huge library of supplemental material that can be used to reinforce what you did 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.
content that is relevant to your goals. 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.” Usually, students we get who have been pushed along through a method book don’t really have a grasp on how to play in time. They also typically can’t play their favorite songs, write 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 strive for continous and never-ending improvement. How many other teachers in Ithaca can say that they genuinely work on becoming better teachers continuously?
innovative teaching methods. We use a geometric teaching method, which simply gets you way faster results and is much more fun than the traditional method.
tools with which you can easily track your progress. All of our students know exactly what they’ve accomplished on a regular basis by using our Practice Tracker.
fun. Students often tell so many horror stories of how they lost their enthusiasm for learning because of unsupportive/ unfocused/ negative teachers. You will experience a great many ways in which you can have a blast and rapidly improve at the same time!
