My Classroom At TrueFire!
When you sign up for my guitar classroom at TrueFire.com, you can send me videos of your practice efforts on a daily or semi-daily basis. This prevents you from practicing wrong!
You will quickly master the Foundation Training from "The Principles of Correct Practice For Guitar", without which there is no hope of real progress on the guitar. Then.......
Your subscription to this classroom also gives you access to Truefires vast catalog of instructional material. On your own, you would find it difficult or impossible to actually learn the material in these courses, but with my guidance, you can learn any style of guitar you want!
What My Students Are Saying?
"Results speak volumes when it comes to assessing the skills of a teacher.
Fourteen months ago, I joined Jamie's Online Classroom and begin lessons with her. As a baseline, I accompanied my songs with a couple of basic strums and open chords at that time. What now?
I play chromatic and major scales in 16th notes using a metronome set at 60, bar chords using a variety of strategies with no crippling tension, several different strums and picking patterns to accompany my songs, bass runs to add variety to my rhythm playing.
I have developed many right hand skills for fingerstyle accompaniment and for playing beautiful melodies and classical repertoire. I could add more to this list.
Most importantly, Jamie has taught me how to practice so I get results from every session without any frustration. I am excited about learning the guitar! Can't wait to see what develops during Year 2 of my lessons. Thanks, Jamie. Teaching is your gift!
Play Like A Professional!
Guitar students have no idea what it takes to play like a pro. Fortunately, I do, and so I require my students to do what the pros do to play the guitar so well and so easily. One very important thing is the constant REALITY BASED evaluation of their skills, which is a necessary pre-requisite for improving those skills. This means constantly recording yourself and evaluating your playing.
In my Online Classroom, we are uniquely set up for that, because students can easily video their practice efforts right from the browser, submit it to me, and I can just as easily send them back a personalized video response, telling and showing them exactly what to do to solve their problems, and exactly how to do it.
This is awesomely powerful, because of the fundamental (scientific) principle of "motor control learning"....receiving feedback and correction on efforts is ESSENTIAL to improvement. You can't change what you don't know is wrong, and if you are not getting better on guitar, you are practicing wrong!
In my classroom, you have access to my most powerful methods for building real guitar playing ability, and you have my personal attention on a daily basis - you will not believe the progress you will make on a weekly basis!
