How long are lessons? and how often are lessons typically?
Most students start by meeting for 30 minutes once a week. Some students meet for 45 or 60 minutes, depending on their interest. I'm flexible about setting up something that works for you. You can contact me if you have any questions.
Does every student need their own instrument?
Yes, each student needs their own guitar or ukulele. The good news is that you don't need to spend a lot and I can give recommendations on where to purchase an instrument.
I also offer rental guitars and ukuleles if you would like to try out an instrument before buying. There are many different sizes and styles of guitars and ukuleles available, so we can find something that's a good fit for you or your child.
What is your teaching philosophy/approach to teaching?
Students play better and stick with it when they're having fun and working on things that they're interested in. In lessons I work with students on songs and styles of music that they like. That way students are motivated to practice.
All students learn the fundamentals of music and get a good foundation in the basics of playing guitar or ukulele.
