During the school season, my schedule tends to get completely (or almost completely) booked up. If you don’t see any openings that fit into your schedule, no worries. Lesson slots will come open from time-to-time for any number of reasons (people move, a student’s schedule conflicts with work/school/sports, people change lesson slots, vacation season, etc.). Whenever there are new lesson openings, I send out a notification email to people who subscribe to my mailing list, so you definitely want to get on the list right now.  It’s a good idea to get on the list even if you’re currently taking lessons with me so you’re informed of other openings that work better for your schedule.

Act FAST to Get Your Guitar Lesson Slot when it comes open…

Once or twice per month I send out an email update to my mailing list notifying folks of any available openings and anything of interest regarding lessons or guitar playing. If you’re waiting for a slot, it’s best that you respond quickly to get the lesson slot of your choice. At the time of this website update, there are 147 people on my waiting list. My slots fill up quickly. I can’t stress that point enough. Too many times I’ve heard people tell me that they got my email but waited to respond till after the weekend and by then I’ve already had a number of responses and the slot was sold. So if you want the slot it’s really important to act FAST!

No Lesson Slots on Hold…

As stated above, I do not reserve slots more than a week in advance when slots are available. I can only fill slots with those students who are ready to start their lessons. I can however hold a slot open up to a month or more if those slots are prepaid during that period of time. This would be only for the reservation of that slot to hold it open for that time, not for received lessons.

Online Guitar Lessons Whenever You Want It… 

Some folks are a little skittish about meeting in person because of Covid and would rather do something online. I totally get it. So if getting lessons online is your preferred option for learning how to play guitar, I recommend taking video lessons through this highly acclaimed online guitar lesson resource that I endorse. The upside to learning through this format is that you’re not limited to a local teacher’s availability or schedule and you can log into your personal lesson account and conveniently learn whenever you want. These are high quality lessons. Check them out!
