I had my first lesson with Pete last week! I can already tell I’m going to learn so much! I’m super excited!Apr 17, 2018Verified
Pete is an excellent teacher, he understands your requirement and provides you with lessons which will help you achieve it. Also, he communicates in advance if there are any changes to the class schedule.Mar 13, 2018Verified
He was very patient and obviously enjoys teaching a novice.Jan 17, 2018Verified
I've been teaching myself through a mix of DVDs books, and online videos, but not making any progress. After my first lesson with Pete, I have learned where my roadblocks are. I'm now confident that my playing will improve.Dec 9, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$25 per half hour lesson, Group lessons are available (3-10 students) at $20 per hour class.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Lessons usually start with basics: parts of the guitar, open string note names, basic power chords, and using those power chords to play simple chord progressions. From there we move on to learning and mastering open chords, and using those more complex chords in learning tunes. After a certain point of learning essentials, the students goals take over. Whether that be learning more tunes to play at the next campfire, or developing technique to become the next great shredder, we can work towards those goals together!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bachelor in Fine arts in Music, in Jazz Studies from the University of Kansas (2016) Associate of Arts in Performance, Guitar from The Musician's Institute (Los Angeles, 2011) 5 Years of experience teaching professionally.
