Online Lessons

Remote learning best serves curious and motivated students who wish to play an active role in their own musical development. Guitar lessons are individually tailored to the goals of beginner, intermediate, and advanced students in addition to professionals looking to refine/explore specific techniques or other work practices, including theory, ear training, improvisation, and playing in different styles and genres.

Scheduling and Platforms

Although fixed, designated lesson times are reserved for weekly students, a variety of scheduling options are available, including a single lesson, bi-weekly or monthly lessons, and quarterly lessons. Current remote platforms include FaceTime, JamKazam, Skype, Zoom, or the use of one of these for video with a Digital Audio Workstation plug-in to facilitate low-latency real-time audio.
