    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I cannot say enough great things about this man. He truly opened my eyes to not only the acoustic guitar, but would frequently talk about life as well, including his own experiences. He is extremely intelligent, musically and about abstract concepts in life. My class had a wide variety of students, and he was tolerant of all of them, and gave complete attention to whoever had any questions , and made sure the content was understood. He also inspired my wish to travel around Europe, going back packing with the bare essentials and discovering who I am and what I want to do in life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how music can truly convey a message to other people, and its a beautiful thing to share with people all over the world. I learned all parts of the acoustic guitar, I learned how to write down every single note on every string all the way up and down the neck, on a quiz. While that sounds daunting, you learn the pattern and going into the class I was COMPLETELY ignorant on anything about the guitar or its methods. The learning pace was NOT quick or frusterating, 15 minutes messing around followed by 30 minutes of song playing in the 'Everybodys Guitar Method' Part I a few times a week was more than enough. If I recall correctly you spend a few weeks on one or two strings, and gradually progress, it is not that hard at all. I learned that, although I pride myself in my public speaking abilities, when I had to play a couple easy songs in front of the entire class { at the end] I was very nervous, because it is a performance rather than a daily thing we do. I learned a lot about myself, and was able to appreciate other music more in depth, especially Metallica. Those men are seriously talented.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I had no money at the time , and on a whim went to a local guitar store and bought a nice acoustic for 150 on a credit card. Best decision I have ever made. You should seriously consider taking it, as it is not very difficult, and it will help ease the burden of difficult or boring general ed classes you are taking. It opened my eyes to the guitar more than I had ever seen before. It is also a wonderful feeling when you are playing together as a class in harmony, I experienced a much smaller scale version of togetherness and brotherhood than I experienced in the Marine Corps, being a part of something again. I highly recommend this class, and teacher. Why are you NOT taking this course?
