One-on-one lessons, any age is welcome, any skill level is welcome - if it's your first time picking up a guitar, that's ok. :)  Lessons are about what you need/want, it's different for everyone.
Start by writing to me...

Tell me about yourself - where you're from, how long you've been playing, the kind of music you like, if you've played with a band or just in the bedroom, what your strengths are, what you want to get better at, what you want to learn specifically.

Lessons are $2/minute, choose however long you'd like to go. We'll set up a day & time, I'll send you a confirmation email, PayPal/Venmo me any time before the day of the lesson.

*Please prepare ahead of time and make sure your Skype/Zoom/computer is working well, no audio or video or connection issues.  If either of us lose our web connection during the lesson, we'll extend the lesson time to make up for it.

*If you need to reschedule a lesson, please give me more than 24 hours' notice.  If you need to cancel a lesson, you'll receive a full refund as long as you give more than 24 hours' notice.
