If any of these questions sound familiar, my BEGINNER classes are for you!
I think the hardest thing about learning the guitar is getting started. There are lots of hurdles in the beginning that take a bit of patience. It could be getting nervous, or tender fingers, or getting your hands to do exactly what you want them to do. I clearly remember what it is like to go through this and I understand how frustrating it can be. Having learned from my own mistakes early on, I can show you how to get past these common stumbling blocks very quickly.
I offer once a week, hour long, group guitar classes in downtown Forsyth GA! For me to be a successful teacher, I need to help YOU ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS and teach you how to PLAY WITH OTHERS. My lesson plans are designed to do just that. I make each exercise fun but focused on giving you the tools you need to achieve your goals. You will be learning and playing songs right away. All of the lessons build upon the next, making sure that you are only learning what you need, and not wasting time with exercises that wont help you in the long run.
These are not “fly by the seat of your pants” guitar lessons, where the teacher makes it up as he/she goes along. I follow a distinct lesson plan. On day one, we establish goals and milestones for all members of the class. Each students progress is recorded, and notes from each lesson will be sent by email. All of the teaching materials for the week are available in the student portal. The goals of the students are incorporated into the lesson plan, so each class is unique to the group.
Speaking of “the group”, I’ve come to my favorite part. Because these are small group classes, there are several benefits that you just can’t get with traditional one on one guitar lessons. Fear of performing in front of others is extremely common. I just don’t remember any of my teachers even talking about this problem, much less trying to do anything about it. My classes deal with this from day one, in a fun and relaxed manner. The exercises are designed to help you learn the guitar, but also learn how to play with and for others. Sharing the experience of learning music with others is highly beneficial, and also offers encouragement, support and accountability. They are also very affordable. The price per-lesson works out to less than half the price of my individual lesson rate.
