Overview

I learned to play the guitar very quickly for one very important reason. I Loved Playing Guitar!

I didn't know "technically" what I was playing, and didn't much care. I just enjoyed playing the few licks I COULD play so much that I spent some considerable time doing it.

Of course I eventually had a desire to add more licks to the limited vocabulary that had entertained me in the beginning, and within the first year of playing the guitar I began sitting in with professional performers in local clubs, ultimately leading to being offered paid positions.

I have learned that the level of enjoyment playing the guitar is directly related to how well (and how fast) one can learn and progress.

My teaching approach reflects this concept. By determining what elements are the most attractive to the potential student, we can move quickly toward areas of interest with optimum results.

Keeping it FUN insures MORE TIME on the instrument. It also promotes easier memorization of what is being "learned", because the focus is always on the joy of playing what you can, rather than struggling to learn what you can't (yet) play!

Another benefit from taking this approach is that once the student traverses the first few "speed bumps", they have a stronger command of what they learn from that point onward, increasing confidence in execution and performance.
