Hello Fellow Guitarist!

I have had fun teaching many wonderful students this month, and I am thankful that most students were able to make it into the studio through our wild snowstorms. I feel energized by the growth I see each week, and I love working with such a wide variety of guitarists.

I’m so ready for spring and our new classes! I encourage students to sign up ASAP because class size is limited, and classes may be cancelled if all interested students do not complete registration and payment by March 1st.

March 3rd, 10th, 24th, 31st

In this 4 week course, students will be taken through a course of study that will help fill in the gaps, and provide a clear path that will lead to the next level of playing. Our specific lesson plan will be determined after I receive student questionnaires from enrolled students. Classes will consist of short lecture/demonstrations, and will be interspersed with jam sessions where students will be encouraged to apply and develop the new concepts. Class is limited to 4 students (ages 16 and up) who have their own acoustic or electric guitars. $190, includes textbook (a $40 value)

“Pay What You Can” Small Group Guitar Class 
Sunday March 10th 1:30pm – 2:00pm

This month I’ll be offering a jam session to students who are currently studying with me, or who have taken a class with me in the past. When I see who is interested, I’ll come up with our set list and skill level checklist for folks so they can prepare for our session in advance. Class is limited to 4 students (ages 16 and up) who have their own acoustic or electric guitars. $20 suggested donation
 

It’s Easy to Support Guitar Education, And I Need Your Help!

Besides working hard with each student during our lessons, I also work hard to keep the cost of running this business low. I’m an affiliate with several companies, which means that when you use one of my links to buy *anything* from Amazon, Apple App Store, or TrueFire, I receive a percentage of the sale. This helps cover the increases I’ve seen in my Seattle business taxes, studio rent, and business insurance this year. Once my costs are covered, I use these funds to offer more scholarships and more “Pay What You Can” Guitar Classes. And as always, anyone can use the Free Online Guitar Course on my website.

Thanks so much for your support, I look forward to working with you!

Play on,

Susan Palmer
