NO Generic, Cookie-Cutter Guitar Store Lessons
How Typical Guitar Lessons Can Be a Bad Investment, and How Lessons Here are Different
On a whim, I got Jake (age 12) a cheap acoustic guitar for Christmas. He was interested in taking a few lessons and so, wanting to avoid the "factory" type of lessons at some of the local music stores, I searched local guitar teachers. I felt confident after a phone conversation with Jared that he would be a good place to start and with the first lesson free, how could we go wrong. After the first lesson, Jake decided that he wanted to continue. We bought a starter electric guitar and amp and the journey began.
Guitar quickly became Jake's passion and he has progressed tremendously in a year and a half. Jared has been an excellent teacher who has taken the time to get to know Jake, his music interests, his strengths and weaknesses and encourages Jake to take his playing to the next level. Jake plays both acoustic and electric guitar and his musical interests include blues, rock, jazz and alternative. A once shy boy, Jake has turned into a confident young man who knows that his life will involve guitar/music and we have Jared to thank for this! We highly recommend Jared to anyone we know who is interested in taking guitar lessons!!
I've been taking lessons for a year and a half. I got into guitar because last year, my parents got me a guitar for christmas and I started taking lessons.
My biggest accomplishment is playing in a band. Things I'm most proud of are being able to play somewhat fast and bending. I started playing in the band 2 months ago.
