New in the Guitar Studio:


 

To Reach Your Goals, You Need: Music Fundamentals + Clear Structure + Accountability

There are great videos, books, and websites for guitarists of all levels, but none of them can address your specific needs and goals better than a good guitar teacher. Most guitar teachers recommend a method book to their students, but the most popular books are boring and not very effective. I wrote “The Guitar Lesson Companion” Method Books to help students get more out of their guitar lessons and to help teachers save time and stay on track in their studios.

Get More Out of Your Guitar Lessons and More Out of Your Guitar

“The Guitar Lesson Companion” method book series takes teachers and their students seriously, and it’s fun to use because it makes it easy to learn the skills you need to play the music you love. These books offer a clear, flexible, and progressive structure with plenty of good sounding exercises, so students and teachers reach their goals faster than ever before.

What’s Your Goal?

Whether you have a guitar teacher who is always asking you what you want to learn each lesson, you prefer learning on your own using a book and videos with occasional lessons, or you’d like to take weekly lessons with me in Seattle or via Skype/FaceTime, pick up your copy of “The Guitar Lesson Companion” method book series today and enjoy the process of learning the skills you need to play your best.
