I was unsure about signing up for guitar lessons because I wasn't sure if I have what it takes, but I am pleasantly surprised at the G4 Guitar Method that is making it very simple and easy to learn. I especially love the practice app! I never feel lost in my practice at home because Dereck sends me videos each week to guide my practice! Loving it!Feb 26, 2020Verified

I've been to three lessons so far and the instructor is very knowledgeable in his music and in the way he teaches. The practice lessons for home are on his website and are just like being in a live session. He is professional and always available to answer questions between my weekly lessons. I always feel a little better about playing when I finish a class , he gives me confidence!Mar 3, 2019Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After receiving your message on Thumbtack, we'll setup a quick phone call, schedule a free lesson so you can come meet us and if you feel like it's a good fit, we'll get you signed up! **No contract required.**
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My journey has been an interesting one. I went to college for 3 semesters majoring in both Physics and Music and then I was an assistant teacher in early childhood education for 3 years, where I was able to receive college credits in child psychology and a lot of training as a teacher. This helped me to expand my thinking on how to clearly communicate with people and meet them where they are at, which is one of the most important elements as a teacher. Today, I am part of the G4 Guitar School Network along with 60 other schools and we are constantly undergoing training as teachers and in business so that you have the utmost professional and quality experience with us!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I became a guitar teacher in a very natural way. I have been playing for 16 years and ever since I started playing, there was always a friend wanting me to show them. Little by little I gained students, word spread and I developed my method and teaching strategies and then adopted the best curriculum that I could find, The G4 Guitar Method!
