"I want to play guitar." Chad helps you see just what that means to you. What level do you aspire to? Do you want to emphasize chords or finger picking or vice versa? What do you hope to do with the guitar? He is the guitar player we are all familiar with: laid back, easy going, so relaxing, soothing - making it look so easy. But he also lets you in on some of his challenges as a teacher and performer - which takes away some of the student's anxiety about being able to learn the guitar. And with his personal attention he conveys that conviction that you. too, can and will play the guitar. But you do have to bring in a level of dedication and commitment to deep, serious, daily practice. I'm semi-retired and so I've able to practice 3 hours a day. I'm just now hearing an improvement in my playing and the fingers are moving with more certainty and confidence. I'm on my way to achieving a level of playing that's of my own making & determination - that is very exciting.

It is still very early in my daughters lessons but she is enjoying them loves her instructor and the process has been very smooth. Having someone come to the house is very convenient and I'm hopeful it will be a long and productive relationship.

I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.

Hi there, my name is Travis Haney. I am a guitar instructor in the Modesto,CA area. I picked up guitar after hearing cool and awesome guitar riffs and I knew i wanted to sound like that. You can say I was hooked. Studying music and playing the guitar has changed my life. Boost of confidence, patience, dedication and desire to learn were added to my character. The styles of music I teach are RocknRoll, Classic Metal, Blues, Proggressive, Alternative and Punk. Here at Haney Guitar my teaching method is to make learning music fun and entertaining. Being able to play like your favorite guitarists and write great music is not out of the question. I take practical ways to create exercises and song pieces that you can play. No complicated, boring exercises that you wouldn't practice anyway. We are here to make it fun.
