Student Reviews from the GP Forum
never ceases to amaze me at how profound and exhilarating a webcam
lesson with Jamie can be. She really gets to the root of your
difficulties and shows you exactly how to get through them. I always
come away from her lessons with a whole new sense of direction and
purpose. One lesson with her is worth more than 10 lessons anywhere
feel fortunate to have discovered a way to take lessons with Jamie even
though I am thousands of miles away in Maine. Webcam lessons have
provided me that opportunity. It is as good as being in the same room!
I have never been made so aware of
exactly where my fingers are supposed to be and where the tension is
that I need to eliminate. I look forward to each lesson…"
"...it's amazing the 'little' things she sees and is able to provide really insightful and helpful advice on."
"...if anyone needs supersonic development as a player then lessons with Jamie will make it happen."
Message from Jamie:
…“Even though I have had requests for webcam lessons for many years, I was always reluctant to do them. I really did have doubts as to the effectiveness of them, and also wondered whether I would enjoy working with a student that way.
Well, I am glad I always make a habit of testing my assumptions! After having given hundreds of webcam lessons with a variety of students, I have been very pleasantly surprised, even amazed, at how effective they are. I have found that my ability to spot the problems with a student’s technique, to analyze the problem, and to prescribe the cure is virtually unhindered by the long distance aspect of the lessons. I guess I have been doing this a long time!
It has been extremely gratifying for me to be able to work with people who would otherwise not be able to deal with the logistics of traveling for lessons. I am now convinced of the great benefit to the student, and so I feel I can get behind the idea of webcam instruction with me without reservations.
In addition to diagnosing student problems, I find there is a great benefit by the simple fact of contact with the student. I am able to observe their practice, and find the flaws in their understanding of correct practice. It can save the student years of frustration.
Also, I can lay out the proper next step tailored to your situation for the achievement of your goals. I can then help you craft a practice schedule and strategy that really brings results, replacing the usual haphazard, lopsided, or disorganized approach many use. I look forward to meeting many more students in webcam lessons.”
