No matter where in the world you are, you can take music lessons from Jim via video chat! It’s easy, and about as convenient as you can get. Available topics include:
- Acoustic guitar
- Electric guitar
- 12-string guitar
- Baritone guitar
- Bass guitar
- Improvisation & Jamming
- Music Theory
- Stagecraft / Stage Presence
- Live Performance Technology (audio, lighting, etc.)
- Performance Anxiety (“stage fright”)
Each lesson is tailored to the needs and abilities of each student. You’ll learn proper technique and good work habits in an adaptive environment, which helps lessons sink in faster and last longer. Your lesson experience starts with a free consultation/lesson where we talk about your music and decide where to go next.
Every lesson includes lots of smiles and laughter along with hard work. Comprehensive recap emails serve as a workbook that students can review as they practice, and each recap includes videos and other materials that are designed to be fun, informative, and inspiring.
It’s Your Music, Play It Your Way
Music isn’t just about following step-by-step instructions or sounding like someone else, it’s about expressing yourself. Listening and experimenting are parts of a whole music curriculum that will improve familiarity with your instrument. When you stop thinking of it as a machine you’re trying to master and start thinking of it as a doorway into your heart, amazing things can happen.
- A fast internet connection
- Webcam with microphone or headphones – tablets or laptops are okay, but smartphones don’t work so well for this
- A Google account and the Google Hangouts software
