Introduction: Learning a musical instrument takes a commitment of daily practice that cannot be done in one lesson. I want you to succeed so that is why I start new students with a 5 week intro course. That way we both can see all the progress made and I can help you keep up your momentum. Most music teachers don't have the experience to see what students need and get them playing efficiently. It doesn't feel like a job. It's more like jamming with friends.

We are so blessed to have found Monte! He is an excellent teacher and is very accommodating to our daughter's basketball schedule. She is learning to play violin and it's exciting to recognize a tune or song as she plays. Thank you, Monte!

I'm happy I decided to start taking guitar lessons. The teacher is friendly, very knowledgeable, and patient. I feel like I've learned a lot and I look forward to learning more. Lessons are reasonably priced and I feel like I'm getting my money's worth.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Lessons are $99 for a 5-week intro course including 5 half-hour lessons once a week for 5 weeks and the complete G4 Guitar Method, downloads, access to the G4 international online network and more.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I meet with new students one on one and determine what musical experience they have. Most have no experience so I start with the most basic G4 Guitar Method. The skills necessary to play guitar are thoroughly covered like picking, chords, arpegios, scales, rhythm, reading and theory. G4 is great for advanced students too. I use benchmarks to progress through the G4 Guitar Method and have experienced students join a small group of other students around the same age, level and musical interests. My most advanced students play real concerts with me in a band.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Certified G4 guitar teacher and franchisee.
