Introduction: **New Limited Time Special Deal! - Only $30 for your first 3 lessons!** Hello! My name is Donnie and I am passionate about developing future musicians. My approach is simple yet unique: teach the students to teach themselves. By educating my students in how to learn my goal is to give you a skill set that will continually pay dividends beyond the duration of our lessons together. As a teacher I've seen in the past how easy it is to make your students depend on you for their learning. For some, it is their business model. That method creates long-term students who never become masters. Instead of that, I am focused on attracting a small group of highly focused and motivated students who will take a little bit of my knowledge and turn it into much more. Through this method I can ensure the highest quality of service for my students. I build a bespoke curriculum specifically for everyone with whom I work. Your curriculum may include: - Required reading (books that relate to the process of learning) - Music Theory - Beginner/intermediate guitar essentials - Advanced learning strategies to break through barriers - Technical advice to make sure you get the best sound out of your guitar and gear possible Here is what you get when you start a lesson plan with me: - Regular practice reminders, follow-up, and feedback. - An instructor who is going to teach you how to succeed on your own, not one who is going to string you along. - Honest feedback. If I believe that we are not a good fit, I'll tell you so. I welcome students of all skill levels. If you are prepared to commit to the life of a musician, send me a request for a consultation and I will follow up with you. Thank you! Have a wonderful day.

I have taken 4 online lessons from Donnie in the past month. I’ve played some guitar in the past by myself and didn’t know how I should improve and I liked the materials Donnie prepared for me. I enjoyed the classes. They all seemed too short, but I learned quite a bit!

Donnie is a great teacher. I’ve only had a couple of lessons but I’m already seeing results! I’ve been trying to learn off and on for a year through YouTube videos. His way of teaching is more effective and methodical. He seems like a cool dude too.

Donnie spent time evaluating where my knowledge was and began stepping me through a very methodical process of checking off necessary base skills then identified where we needed to start. I really appreciated his process and his openness about my current skills and what I needed to progress. Well worth the time and more than worth the cost of the lessons.

I enjoyed working with Donnie. He was personable, quick to respond, knowledgeable about music and helped fill in the gaps from my self taught YouTube learning of guitar. He was also patient and accommodating with me and my schedule! If you’re looking for a teacher to help expand your guitar skills, I would recommend Donnie 100%.
