About this pro
I've had a great experience learning to play from Morgan. He's accessible, flexible, and makes learning an instrument doable and fun. He learned early on that I love Neil Young and has been helping me learn how to play some of my favorite songs. It's been a real pleasure working with him and I highly recommend him as an instructor.Jul 6, 2018Verified
I’ve had two lessons so far with Morgan. He’s already taught me a lot.Feb 16, 2018Verified
Morgan is a great guy and an excellent guitar instructor. Since signing up with him I've not only become much better at guitar (from zero to okay) but we are good friends and hang out regularly. If you're looking to gig in the future he has many insights and can help you get your stage presence and proficiency where it needs to be. He is also a great luthier so he can help you get maximum value out of your axe by setting it up for you. One stop shop for all things guitar/bass.Jan 9, 2018Verified
I had never strummed a chord before taking lessons with Morgan and couldn't believe the progress I made after only one year - I now have a binder full of songs I love which I can play with confidence! His ability to break down complex music theory was most valuable, as he encourages students to figure out the notes and techniques without relying on tabs and sheet music, and is very amenable to teaching the genre you want to learn. I would highly recommend Morgan to anyone who's looking for a friendly, casual, fun and valuable experience when learning guitar!Sep 27, 2017Verified
Morgan's everything you'd want in a teacher: patient, humble, and with a great sense of humor. Can't recommend enough.Apr 11, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pretty simple - $65 per lesson. No minimum, though students generally choose to pay for each month in advance. Excused lessons result in makeup lessons or credit into the next month. 24 hour notice is required if a lesson is missed for any except emergencies. Either way, makeups can usually be scheduled.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I had music in school (when they still had that) and took the equivalent of a music minor in college. Since then I've been learning new songs and techniques both in bands I play in, and for my students. Staying up on the blogs and forums, magazines etc. I also research material for my books.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I played in paying bands since 1967, all though high school and college and went to work at a music store and a studio (nights) when I graduated. Money demands, marriage, kids, etc., made me join the IT industry (just as it was taking off) for over 20 years. During that time I was still in bands that got together and played out on weekends. My work allowed me to teach people in my company, and our customers too. But after a couple of dozen years in the computer industry, I basically ran out of motivation. What I really wanted to do was make and teach music. So Ieft the "day job" and set up four businesses - a small recording studio, a repair shop, playing out in bands, and...teaching. I'm able to do what I love for a living!
