You bought a guitar. You’ve been playing for a few years, and you maybe even started a band with some friends. You’ve gone online and you’ve found tabs for your favorite songs, and love jamming along to them.
But something’s missing.
You look down, and you just can’t do all of the things you want to do. You hear that song on the radio, you wish you could play it, but you just can’t figure it out.
I’ve been there. We all have.
This is why I’ve created this site, and why I got into guitar teaching. I don’t want you to have to struggle the way I did.
Because of this, I’m offering guitar lessons over Skype.
When: Saturday mornings and afternoons (Pacific Time)
Where: From the comfort of your own home
How: over Skype
How much: $40 for 30 minutes, $70 for 1 hour
Interested? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get you started.
Still not sure if these are right for you?
I understand – it’s a big step to take guitar lessons. It’s a large financial commitment, and one I don’t want you to take lightly.
So with that in mind, I want to make a guarantee.
If after the first two lessons, you decide that you aren’t satisfied, I will give you 100% of your money back! There’s no hassle – just send me an email and I’ll refund your money within 24 hours.
Do you know why I feel comfortable offering that? Because I KNOW these lessons will be useful.
See, most guitar teachers treat it as a blessing that you are teaching from them. Not me. I understand that it’s a big commitment, and you’re paying a lot of money. That’s why I want to let you in on my signature 8 WEEKS TO SUCCESS program, which I designed just for you.
What’s the 8 Weeks to Success program?
The 8 Weeks to Success program is my signature program where we sit down in our first lesson, and we decide what exactly YOU want to get better at.
After our first lesson, you’ll go home with a lesson program, telling you exactly what you need to practice, for how long, and things to watch out for when getting better.
Then, the following week, we’ll have our lesson, and we’ll tweak it. That way, we KNOW that after 8 weeks, you will hit the goal.
Here are some ACHIEVABLE goals during our 8 weeks to success:
- Be comfortable with 50 new chord shapes
- Increase your speed by 30 bpm
- Learn how to play scales in any key
- Turn your friends’ heads with your solos!
How is it possible?
Most people don’t know how to practice – I do. I’ve tried everything under the sun, and have developed a routine that I KNOW will give results.
So what are you waiting for?
Interested in lessons? Send me an email at email@example.com and we’ll get you started!
And remember, if after the first two lessons, you decide that these aren’t for you, I’ll give you 100% of your money back – NO QUESTIONS ASKED!
What, still not convinced? What is it, is it because I have all of this free content on the blog?
Do you know why I’m not worried about the free content? Because in no way can it compete with what we’ll go over in our lessons.
The reason is that on this site, I can give general guidelines on how to get better. But you don’t want guidelines – you want ACTIONABLE items that I can teach you so you get better TODAY. You don’t want suggestions given to you haphazardly – you want me to help guide you.
Well that’s exactly what I’ll do. I’ll take you from where you are, and teach you EXACTLY what you need to know to get better. No hassle, no fuss. Just actionable results.
That’s why I am fine offering you a 100% refund after the first two lessons – I KNOW, once you see my process in action and you see how far you go just between the first and the second lesson, that you’ll want to stick around. And I know, when you see what the whole 8 Weeks to Success will look like, that you’ll want to see just how far you can go over 8 weeks.
Still not convinced? Well, let’s see if we can answer some of your questions.
How long do I have to commit for?
There is NO commitment – if you sign up for a lesson, I expect you to be online at that time, however you will never be fully committing for more than that one lesson. Even with the 8 Weeks to Success program, you can quit at ANY time, just by letting me know.
What can you teach me?
My specialties are rock and metal guitar, and all things having to do with those. That being said, as part of my program, I want to cater my lessons to what YOU want to learn. That means if you want to learn it, I want to teach it. Here are some ideas for things I can teach you:
How to write better songs (music theory – if you don’t know what that means, don’t worry, I’ll teach it to you!)
How to hear a song on the radio, and learn how to play it (ear training)
How to solo (improvising)
Different playing techniques: alternate picking, sweeping, tapping, legato playing, etc.
How do I pay for the lessons?
I’ve found that Paypal is the easiest for both parties. I have an account which I will give you the info for once you’ve reached out for lessons.
If you’re not familiar with Paypal, you can visit their website at www.paypal.com. They are a fast, easy, and safe service that allows two parties to pay each other over the internet, either by credit card or bank account. I (and no one on my side) will never see your specific information, and you will never see mine, so there is no need to worry!
I want to take lessons from you, but I don’t know if I’m advanced enough?
That’s baloney. If you own a guitar, I’ll teach you lessons. While I do typically skew to more advanced players, there is no lower limit. I also find that beginners tend to be the most enthusiastic, which means they’re the most fun.
The only specification I have is I only teach rock and metal guitar. For other genres (jazz, classical, folk, country, etc.), there are other teachers I can refer you to.
How exactly do these Skype lessons work? What is Skype?
Skype is a FREE internet service that allows you to video chat from anywhere, to anywhere in the world. It works through a program you can download at www.skype.com. If you have more questions, you can go to this website.
The limitation is that to be able to use this, you need to have an internet connection that is fast enough to be able to live-stream the video. I also want to warn you in case you have a limited amount of total data you can stream over the internet, either by your cable provider or by any other limitation.
How does your scheduling work?
Once you reach out, I will let you know my openings in my schedule, and we can work to find a time that works for both of us.
Note that if I am full at that moment, I may need to put you on my waiting list. When I have slots open up, either due to vacation, other commitments, or students moving on, I’ll reach out and we can get you into my schedule!
What do I need to take lessons?
Only a guitar, and a webcam of sorts so I can see what you’re playing during the lesson. Nothing else.
