• Music Lessons $35.00 Fixed

Hi, I'm Jim.
I love Fingerstyle Guitar. I love listening to Tommy Emmanuel, Don Ross, Mike Dawes, Andy McKee and many other Fingerstyle players. Fingerstyle makes up the majority of my repertoire. In fact I wrote most of it. I've recorded and/or composed enough music to fill over 3 CDs, most without lyrics, so my guitar does all the work. I've performed as a solo artist as well as with other musicians. I can teach you too!

Right from the start, most guitar teachers bore and frustrate their students with technical info. Unless they're very determined, they may soon want to quit. They want to play guitar, not study technical info.

MOST OF MY STUDENTS PLAY THEIR FIRST SONG WITHIN 2 WEEKS EVEN THOUGH THEY NEVER PLAYED BEFORE! ...AND IT'S A COOL FINGERSTYLE SONG! My philosophy is: If people enjoy playing, they will (1) be more inclined to learn the technical side of music. They'll also (2) enjoy the lessons more, (3) want to continue playing and (4) ultimately reach their goals.

I don't limit students by prejudging their ability. I've found that if I expect more from them, they expect more of themselves and typically perform better and advance faster.

After less than a year of lessons, one of my students was paid to perform with professionals.
After just 4 months of lessons, another student had a repertoire of over 30 songs.

Of course, the amount of time you spend practicing, as well as your level of commitment and natural aptitude will determine your progress.

Finally, you don't have to come to me, I'll come to your house at a mutually agreeable time.
