It’s time to become the guitar player you always wanted to be!

Learning guitar on your own will leave you with missing pieces. You will have no feedback on your playing, so how will you ever know if you’re really doing it right. Give yourself the support, guidance, and motivation  to progress quickly and play better. This will save you TIME and MONEY, because you’ll get what you need at the right time. No wasted dollars and energy on books and DVD’s that are incomplete. No wasted time scouring the internet trying to find answers from unreliable sources. Imagine yourself playing guitar and think about how good it will feel to finally be playing how you want to. 

I will help you to get to where YOU want to be, by helping you define your goals and creating a long term plan to get you there. I am committed to your progress. Normally overlooked playing problems will be identified and systematically overcome based on your needs. You will get FREE tools to help you move to where you want to be more effectively. You will learn so much more than just songs. You will be coached toward success and have someone to walk with you through it.

I can relate to how frustrating it can be to learn the guitar. When I started playing guitar I wanted to throw it against the wall everyday. What I have found is that taking lessons from an experienced guitar teacher who knows how to guide you will make it a lot easier and bring results much faster. This is why my mission as a teacher is to help you play guitar and enjoy the process.  If you’re looking for electric and acoustic guitar lessons in Seattle for beginners to advanced, then keep reading.

WHAT SETS SEATTLE GUITAR MENTOR APART FROM OTHER GUITAR TEACHERS?

Not all guitar lessons are the same. I’ve heard many stories from students about how bad their previous teachers were. So much time and money wasted and even worse, some were afraid to take lessons again. Here is a comparison of how I do things differently and the benefits you can expect.

Normal guitar teachers Seattle Guitar Mentor
How do you figure out what I need as a guitar player to get results? A normal teacher will ask you what bands or songs you like and then teach you those songs or just do traditional guitar lessons which are often boring and irrelevant to your situation and goals. I do a free introductory guitar lesson to determine your level of playing ability, learning style, and we can talk about what you want to do. This will help us form a plan and know the best program for your needs and your goals or if you are a beginner, how to get you started. Lessons are tailored to YOU with relevant content to help you reach your goals. No cookie cutter guitar lessons. There are multiple program options to fit your needs.
What is your plan to help me get over my struggles and reach my goals? Most teachers have no plan or strategy at all. They just ask what you want to learn and never work on solving the problems holding you back. From the first lesson we will develop a short and long term plan to reach your goals. This will give a clear direction of where you want to go and how to get there. This will also be redefined over time as you grow in your guitar playing. I will keep files of your playing to monitor your progress and use proven strategies overcome your guitar playing issues. You will get personal feedback on your guitar playing and progress.  If you do not know what your goals are I can help you figure them out.
How will you help my practice time when I’m not at lessons? Normal teachers will only tell you to put more time into practicing. You will be trained how to practice effectively, so you know exactly what to practice. This will help you save time and money by learning quicker and getting results. All materials are provided including backing tracks, videos, etc. You will also get fully personalized practice schedules to help you know exactly what to do.
Do you travel to students or do they come to you? A lot of teachers offer to travel because they don’t have a lot of students and need the experience or they don’t have a  teaching studio. I am a serious teacher and want the best results from my students. If I spend all my time traveling I would not have time to invest into making sure my students get the best guitar lessons possible. I am centrally located in Seattle, surrounded by a good deal of public transportation, as well as plenty of parking space at any time of the day. I have students form all over Seattle and surrounding areas who know the value is more than worth the short commute. My studio has a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of space, so you can feel great as you learn and get to play the way you’ve dreamed about. This also enables me to have workshops and jam sessions for students to deepen their knowledge and skills.
Do you have proof that your methods work? Most teachers do not even have methods. A lot know how to play, but have no idea how to teach and have definitely not studied or been trained to teach guitar. I have had many satisfied students over the years and I am in an ongoing guitar teaching program to ensure constant growth and improvement as a guitar teacher.
