What’s Your Goal?


Josh Braun, Guitar Student: After spending close to a smabillion dollars on guitar instruction I learned this . . . Being an awesome guitarist and an excellent instructor are two different things. Finding someone who is both is rare. Fortunately for me, Susan is that rare gem.


Susan Palmer teaches jazz, blues, and rock guitar styles in Seattle and via webcam. Since 2006, she has been the guitar instructor at Seattle University and in 2010 she created and started teaching The Rock Project at Cornish College of the Arts. Palmer wrote The Guitar Lesson Companion Method Book Series which is used by teachers and students in over 10 countries, including faculty at Berklee College of Music. Her extensive collection of lesson videos and jam tracks are available for free on YouTube and she also teaches private lessons online via webcam to students all over the world. Palmer’s current and former students perform at these Seattle venues: The Comet, The High Dive, Skylark, Neumos, The Hard Rock Cafe, Chop Suey, The Tractor Tavern, The Rendezvous, The Sorrento Hotel, The Crocodile, The Mix, Cafe Racer, The Edgewater Hotel, and other private events.
