I started guitar lessons with Ford with a very specific direction in mind. Finger-picking and chord melody work. I came to realize that I also needed good reminders of quality work. Ford, was patient, consistent and provided the instruction that I needed and I am looking forward to continuing what I have started.Aug 6, 2014
Fords guitar lessons are top notch. He has an easy style and gets you to playing right away. I was worried that I couldnt be taught and Ford patience and perseverance has gotten me to play outside of my comfort zone. I like that he is flexible with his lesson times as my schedule sometimes conflicts our scheduled time. I highly recommend Lessons by FordAug 18, 2013Guitar By Ford's reply
thanks for your comments Steve. I look forward to our lesson time and the direction you are going.
My son has taken guitar lessons from Ford for years, and could not be happier. He plays his guitar for hours a day now. Fords lessons are very specific to the student, and what they are trying to learn. He has a system, but doesn't hold the student to a strict book learned curriculum, but rather tailors the lessons to the student. We had to take a break, due to multiple other commitments, school, soccer, etc, but my son is very anxious to get back to learning with Ford this year. I have taken up bass, and am thinking about taking some bass lessons from him myself.Aug 11, 2013Guitar By Ford's reply
thanks for the comments & kind thoughts. It has been a fun journey watching Matthew grow! musically and physically :)
I started taking guitar lessons from Ford one month ago to learn finger picking and fudamentals. I am really happy with his method. He lets you choose the songs you like, he teaches you how to play them and in the same time you learn specific techniques. I think this is a very good method to motivate a student and to enjoy learning to play guitar. Actually as soon as the lesson is done I look forward the next lesson because I see myself progressing very quickly. Also he is always available to reply to email if you have any question. I definitely recommend Ford as a guitar teacher.Aug 9, 2013Guitar By Ford's reply
thanks Marta for your kind words and taking the time to do this. You get 5 stars as a student too. Your hard work will continue to pay off. way to go!
Ford recently played for a dinner/wine tasting gathering of 30 guests for my business partner. We wanted soothing, interesting and quiet guitar music for the event. Fords performance was just what we ordered with background guitar music that could give a wonderful musical ambiance but dinner conversations could still be enjoyed while he played. It was a perfect combination for us and we would consider hiring him again in the future should the occasion arise.Oct 20, 2015
- What types of customers have you worked with?I teach Guitar to beginner to advanced students in a variety of styles. Finger style jazz to alternative rock and most things in between including classical, brazilian and simple flamenco. All ages are welcome. I've taught from 5 - 80 yr olds with success. Also bass and ukulele lessons are available.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Make sure the teacher you pick has knowledge in the musical direction you want to go. How long have you been teaching is a good common Q. Also price isn't everything. My rate is very fair, and you get a lot for it. find out if the teacher follows a format or just teaches song. I teach note reading and tab. Get the teacher's view on which they teach and why.
