The TRUTH about Learning Guitar

The Essence of My Teaching



My teaching goes far beyond merely showing the student where to place their fingers to play chords, scales and arpeggios. It goes far beyond placing tab or music in front of a student and saying "have fun, I wish you the best!".

Guitar students must be shown how to teach their fingers to play the notes. They must be shown the methods that effecively train undeveloped and in-expererienced fingers how to stretch and move gracefully on the strings so that real and beautiful music emerges. The sad fact is that most guitar students are never shown how to do this, and so they struggle month after month and year after year to "get it".

In my teaching, everyone "gets it". I teach the scientific laws of body learning as applied to training fingers for guitar. When you know these laws and how to apply them, you can learn whatever you want on guitar, and become as good as you are willing to work to become.

In the following video, I explain in more detail what I do with students, and how I do it.
