About Lessons

Teaching guitar lessons is one of my favorite things to do. I love using my knowledge to inspire new minds with music. I have a well-rounded musical background, with experience in performance, songwriting, production, and business.

All lessons are 1-on-1, individualized, and personalized to each student’s needs. This way, I can tailor the curriculum to focus more on what you really want to learn. I specialize in beginners.

Lessons are available through Skype, and also from my home recording studio in person (for northwestern Johnson County residents only).

Why take lessons?

YouTube and online tutorials offer a great way to learn… sometimes. Teachers often have no credibility, pacing may be too fast or too slow, and the content is frequently just inaccurate. 1-on-1 lessons are by far the best way to learn an instrument, as they allow lots of flexibility in the pacing and content. You can be sure that you are being taught by an industry professional.

Cost

$25 per 30-minute lesson or $35 per 60-minute lesson.
Lessons are every other week unless otherwise agreed upon, and are billed monthly.
A $5 discount is available for current UMKC students.

Referral program

For current students, when you refer a friend and they sign up, you both get a one-time $10 credit toward future lessons.

What you need for Skype lessons

  • The latest version of Skype (available here)
  • A high-speed internet connection
  • Webcam/microphone
  • A credit/debit card or PayPal account
  • A guitar

For in-person lessons, all you need to bring is your guitar. However, additional accessories such as a case and picks are strongly recommended.
