Online Music Lessons

 When I started playing more seriously, like most of you, I started taking lessons in town and I went searching on-line for great YouTube teachers. What I found was that there are TONS of phenomenal players, and a few great teachers, but that even the great teachers were often talking about things that I'd never heard of or couldn't visualize even if I had.  Things like: 


  • This melody starts on the third scale degree...
  • This is just a I, V, IV progression...
  • You can solo with the Major OR minor pentatonic here...
  • Alternate the 1 and 5 notes on this bass line...
  • We're just using the A minor pentatonic scale here...
  • This progression comes from the circle of fifths...
  • Just flatten the 7 note to make it a dominant 7 chord...
  • and so many more that left me "lost"...


  All these are important, & can change the way we play music, but without a way to see them, too many of us are left confused and frustrated. This is exactly why I created Fretboard Toolboxes.  I believe we'd all get so much more out of lessons if we had the language and a way to visualize the great ideas being taught!

 If you'd like one-on-one Skype/Facetime lessons, send me an email or use form in the "Contact" tab above and we'll get you on the schedule. All you need is a Skype or Facetime account and an Internet connection.  

 

  Lessons are $20 USD per 30 minute session and are payable via PayPal. 

  Using Fretboard Toolboxes, I can help you start to see these ideas and more, so you have the language and the background to get the most out of the seemingly infinite number of lessons that are out there.  Lessons with me are not about learning to strum your favorite song, or tear up your favorite solo- they're meant to help you see & understand the ideas that can have you nodding your head when music instructors mention critical ideas that you'd have missed before.

​ 

  I'm willing and able to explain these ideas on any instrument that has a Fretboard Toolbox, including guitar, mandolin, soprano, concert, tenor, & baritone ukuleles, tenor guitar (tenor banjo/mandola), bass, 5-string banjo,  & even piano.  I have all these instruments at home to teach with, but my 5-string banjo and I need to spend lots more time together.  :-)
 

Happy playing!
