Jamie Andreas About the Educator

Why do so many people have trouble learning guitar? Why are so many guitar players unable to get any better? What are the great players doing that is different than what the rest of us do?

These are the questions that Jamie Andreas has pondered in her 40 years of teaching guitar. After the first 25 years, she formulated the answers she had found into a book called "The Principles Of Correct Practice For Guitar".

Jamie says It is a sad fact that most guitar students do not reach their true potential as guitar players because their practice is ineffective. They simply do not know what to do to train their fingers to make the necessary movements needed to make music on the guitar.

Anyone who uses the methods found in How To Practice: Guitar Essentials will become a real guitar player, who knows how to keep getting better. Thousands of people worldwide are doing it right now!

Two time winner of Acoustic Guitar's "Players Choice Award" in the "Guitar Instructional" category, "The Principles" has often been called "The Holy Grail of Guitar". Here is a sampling of reviews by industry professionals...

"I have recommended The Principles highly in my Guitar Pedagogy classan excellent supplement to any other method book, and it is enormously useful for teachers!" - David Grimes, Soundboard Magazine

"The Principles of Correct Practice for Guitar by Jamie Andreas changed my life! I gained immense confidence in my ability to communicate with my students. My students are playing better, learning faster, and accomplishing more. Through the use of Jamies terminology in this book, I can explain technique in a way that anyone can understand." - David Issacs, Professor of Guitar, Cerritos College, CA
