I'll assess your skills and objectives on an ongoing basis. I'll prepare personalized lesson plans based on those assessments. I'll guide you through those plans by answering all of your questions, reviewing your video submissions and giving you feedback. I'll point out what you're doing correctly and show you how to improve all aspects of your playing whether its technique, theory, gear, tone, performing onstage, participating in jam sessions or recording sessions.
In short, you can tap into my many years of experience as a professional musician -- I'll be there for you whenever and however you need me!
Along the way, you'll get to interact with other Classroom students in a "social learning" environment and have a little fun participating in classroom jams, discussion threads and other related activities.
