Guitar Lessons

Info

Watch Bill's Teaching Approach on YouTube


Today there are so many great guitarists, and some of them are great teachers too. With so much information available about playing guitar, you can learn just about anything if you know where to look.

However, if you don't have enough experience or background, all that information can cause a great deal of confusion. And that's where I feel I come in as a teacher. Ultimately, I believe my strength as a teacher is simply condensing large amounts of information into units or "chunks" that accelerate your understanding of the big picture.

My teaching is helpful to all types of musicians. However, this isn't probably the best place for a "jazz guitarist" attempting to delve deeper into that well-covered art form. Instead, whether you play jazz, rock, folk, metal or whatever, my goal is to help you acquire the knowledge that will allow you to find and further your skills on your own unique musical path.

If you are interested in lessons with me, I can get a better sense of you're skill level if you fill out the this Questionnaire.
