I am Rex founder and lead guitar instructor at Guitar Confidence. I am a guitarist and a guitar trainer with over 40 years of experience as a musician, music instructor, arranger and performing artist. I have been training students for a long duration of time and the most common problem with new guitar players which I have observed is impatience. They just want to begin shredding solos and playing guitar like a rock star.
If you watch some of the top guitarists in the world, regardless of whether they play classical tunes or heavy rock, they all have one thing in common i.e. good technique, meaning they are properly applying all those basic requirements for playing great guitar.
One of the major reasons why so few people become great guitarists is not because they lack talent, but rather due to not knowing all the things they need to do or practice to reach their goal. Guitar learners usually have more than enough things to practice but struggle most with creating an overall plan to get them the result they are looking for. Moving your guitar playing ability from wherever it is right now to where you have always dreamed of can be achieved. For this you must join a guitar learning institution and have a well-structured guitar practice regimen is a key first step to do this.
My main motive behind starting Guitar Confidence is one and one thing only and that is to provide the gift of guitar to as many people as possible by teaching them how to play guitar. Now-a-days people with their busy life schedule do not find time to learn guitar and give up even before starting it. The best part of Guitar Confidence is that it will provide you in-home guitar, bass, ukulele, banjo, and mandolin lessons throughout the East Bay including San Ramon. Guitar Confidence covers over 30 cities in the East Bay area; including San Ramon, Benicia, Berkeley, Clayton, Concord, Crocket, Danville, Dublin, Fairfield, Hercules, Lafayette, Livermore, Martinez, Moraga, Orinda, Pleasant Hill, Pleasanton, Vallejo, & Walnut Creek, CA.
I have designed two different guitar teaching systems for beginners and accomplished guitar players. Whether you just want to play for pleasure, or want to learn guitar I will help you with your dream and provide you with one to one tuition. Guitar Confidence’s mobile guitar instructors come to you to give you personal one-on-one lessons in the privacy of your own home.
The guitar is a great instrument. It is portable, relatively inexpensive, easy enough to learn the basics and you can take your playing as far as you want. Lots of people – from kids to grandparents – learn the guitar every day. And if you’re one of them then Guitar Confidence is the right place for you.
