Guitar coaching is available with Guitar Life in the Indianapolis area. Set up an lesson by calling 317-300-4618.
Lesson Rates: $45 for 50-70 minutes. Pay as you go only.
Flex Scheduling: Lessons are available 7 days a week, depending on the week. There is no set schedule. Guitar Life students are on a call-in basis.
Materials: I provide all of your learning materials, but will also work with any and all materials that are interesting to you. I can suggest books or other media for you to purchase. I don’t sell physical products.
Cancellation Policy: None. You never lose money. I leave it up to the student whether to pay for cancelled sessions. I want clients to be happy and moving forward, not sense any type of imbalance.
Once or twice a month is also common. I work with your schedule. Music is a life-long endeavor, so I’ve designed my methods around that model. Most of my students never quit. There are phases to everything. And, a little over a long time adds up.
Styles: I help folks develop their own style. To do this, we use known styles, yet our focus is on the sonic materials used to create all styles. I provide training and creative exercises which allow students to understand how all styles are put together.
Degree: I’m degreed in Classical guitar [Bachelor of Music, Guitar Performance, CSUN], plus have a Masters in Music Technology from IU School of Music, but my specialty is the creative process…chord library building, improvising, melody and songwriting.
To teach this way means that we train our hands using our native intelligence, and then put those skills to work to make music.
No: I don’t just figure out songs for students. There are guitar stores around town that serve this purpose and do it well.
Song-playing is obviously a part of our studies, but we also train and do creative exercises.
