The TRUTH about Learning Guitar
 
Jamie Andreas > Jamie As a Teacher
Jamie As a Teacher


I began playing the guitar at 14, and at 17 I began my teaching career. It has been over 40 years now, and I have sat across from thousands of students, helping them learn the guitar, and giving them what they need to be succesfull in their efforts to become guitarists and musicians.

It does not matter to me what age the student is, what style they want to play, or whether they are beginners or long time players. It does not matter to me whether they wish to simply come home from work at night and strum and sing their favorite songs, or become rock stars or concert artists. My job is to hook each student up with their own musical satisfaction whatever form that might take. My job is to make sure they understand how to get good on guitar, and how to keep getting better.

My job is to do for them what I have always done for myself, create a happy guitar player!
