Free & Half-Priced Guitar Lessons from a Pro
Today I was teaching guitar lessons in Dublin, San Ramon and Danville. I received a phone call from a mom who saw my mobile guitar lessons advertisement on my car. She wanted lessons for her daughter in 8th grade. I spent 20 minutes answering her questions.
I let her know that I’m the only professional guitar instructor that gives first lesson free of charge for an hour and not half hour and that I pay for all learning books and materials. I also give a deal where you purchase two hour private guitar lessons at your home, then you get two for free. No guitar lessons contracts and I do make ups when lessons need to be rescheduled.
No other Bay Area Guitar Studio Program that I know of offers anything for free unless you sign a contract. Then I advised her to check out my website and listen to my guitar students jamming with top Bay Area musicians from Santana, Tower Power and many other celebrities.
If you’re a parent in Dublin, San Ramon or Danville, CA looking for beginning guitar lessons for your children or for yourself at beginning level or self-taught for many years, you want to find a professional guitar instructor that can build your confidence and take you to the next level, you’ve come to the right website.
If you play by ear, you can only play what you can hear. There are a few professionals that play by ear like Stevie Wonder, Jose Feliciano and other prodigies, but most guitar students & players need a professional instructor that has a background in music theory including reading sheet music.
Today, there are a lot of music charts that use tab which is usually incorrect and they do not tell you how long to hold each note or to rest in-between notes. Take the time to find a guitar instructor that offers reading music and works on developing your ability to perform or jam at first with jam tapes and then eventually performing in live concerts.
Learning guitar theory without reading music does not allow you to develop a good sense of timing. That’s why you want to pick a guitar instructor that has been formally trained and has a resume that shows their performing history.
As a professional guitar instructor and performing and recording artist, I have recorded and performed with top pros like Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, Frank Sinatra plus many other artists.
If you learn how to apply your reading skills with your ear development, in six months you should be able to play any song you want, within reason, because you can purchase music transcribed from recordings. You can play along with the CD and if it is too fast, you can get a computer program that reduces the speed up to 50 percent slower without changing the pitch.
Tascam has the Guitar Trainer or Bass Trainer. This builds your confidence. Take the time to pick a professional guitar instructor in Danville, Dublin or San Ramon that teaches you theory and applying that theory through reading real music notation as well as working on chords and soloing chops.
