Guitar Lesson Info

Guitar lessons are held at my studio in Yandas Music. Individual lessons are a half-hour long and are held once a week. I accept players of all skill levels, kids and adults alike. whether you’ve been playing for a few years and need a little direction, or haven’t strummed a single chord, I will you help you achieve your goals in a laid back environment.  My goal as a teacher is to give you all the tools you need to be a successful and versatile musician. Rock solos, write your own music, play on a worship team at your church, start a band, or just strum a few chords in your bedroom. I want to give you all the knowledge you need to to develop your own musical style.

Practice, Practice, Practice!

A half-hour is not a lot a time. I can give you all the guidance and knowledge you need, but it is up to you to go home and work on the things we cover in our lessons. The bottom line is, you won’t be successful if you aren’t doing your part at home. For beginners, you should be getting in at least one hour of practice time a week. (This does not include our lesson time.) This time can and should be split up to fit your schedule. I strongly recommend that you make a weekly practice schedule and stick to it. Set aside two or three times a week that you are going to dedicate to practicing guitar. 20 or 30 minutes at a time is all you need as long you are consistent. Of course if you want to practice more, then knock yourself out!
