Guitar Academy

In addition to the usual benefits of my recorded lessons in the familiar format, I've recently introduced a groundbreaking feature for my students. If they encounter difficulties with the rhythm in a passage, I create a short video of myself performing that passage alongside a metronome. Now, students have the option to loop that passage endlessly with a simple mouse click and practice it alongside me for as long as they desire. They also have the flexibility to adjust the speed of the passage to suit their needs. It truly feels like having a personal trainer practicing with you every time! This feature provides instant feedback, helping you identify whether you're speeding up or slowing down at specific points in a passage, and it allows you to make necessary adjustments by slowing down the video to an extreme if required.

Common questions:

Will it have the human element I'm looking for?
Our relationship is personable - many students choose to share personal thoughts about the week, and I do the same. We have conversations!

Are you going to be able to see/hear me well?
I watch your videos on a 30-inch monitor using high-quality speakers and at a closer proximity than would naturally occur during an in-person visit.

I am not good with technology, is it easy to operate?
Yes! It is easier than a Zoom or Skype call. Most of  my students are seniors who have very limited experience with technology, watch the testimonials! Contact me for a FREE meeting! We’ll get to know one another, and I’ll set it all up for you - no hassle! Your lesson is delivered directly to your email and can be accessed from any device.

My intensive classical guitar training gives me a considerable edge in playing and understanding the ukulele. It is similar to a guitar, but with only 4 strings. That means all chord shapes and melodic lines are virtually identical to playing those strings on a regular guitar. It's a simpler and more accessible instrument for anyone who wants to learn their first musical instrument.

Understand how music works, get into the mind of composers through musical analysis and gain a new degree of appreciation of this beautiful art form called music.
