GG is a great guitar teacher. She helped me start as a complete beginner all the while making it fun in the process. She also has a great reservoir of knowledge of guitar, theory, blues, etc. Highly recommendedOct 5, 2016
GG is a wonderful teacher. She is particularly good at gearing the lessons to what I want (or need!) to learn next. She is very supportive and provides constructive input on what I need to know. And she has been great at providing context and theory that have made it interesting. Most important, I have just learned a huge amount and made great progress thanks to her.Jun 11, 2014Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer a 50% discount on students' first lesson to try me out. When students sign up for weekly lessons, I ask that they pay at the end of the current month for the following month's lessons. (usually 4, or 5 in longer months)
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm still honing my skills as a guitarist, by listening to other artists I admire and trying new riffs, or chords that are new to me. I also keep studying music theory, which really is a pretty vast field! I know a lot of theory, which i can pass onto my students, but there's always more to learn.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've always loved to learn..still do! I have taught other things throughout my life.. I taught swimming for 6 years while i was in middle and high school. I always liked to show people things in general that I learned. So teaching guitar was a natural progression for me once I'd mastered a lot of the skills and had enough experience in all of the styles that I've played. My late father told me often, "Be a good listener." ..that meant, being patient, which is probably the number one trait a good teacher must have. I think he'd be happy that I listened to him!
