*Students click here for list of tunes.

Lesson openings are for beginner to intermediate acoustic guitar players. 

I started playing guitar to accompany fiddle students in contests and concerts as well as playing with our Youth Orchestra on fiddle arrangements. I have a few years experience playing guitar with the worship team in church. I've also played guitar in the recording studio for different fiddle albums, including one of my own.

With that background my emphasis on teaching the guitar has a lot to do with chords and playing rhythm or accompaniment.  You will also learn a starting repertoire of songs to develop your picking technique.  And we can work on improvising (if that interests you). I am not a rock and roll or pop music guitar teacher. However, if you bring in tab or chord charts for a song you are interested in learning, I can certainly work through it with you and give you tips on how to practice it. 

I teach lessons at my home studio in Shawnee, KS, at the Wyatt Violin Shop on Saturdays only, and around the world on Skype. Click on one to find out more.

I included a few videos of my guitar playing below.
