Question and answer

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A: Guitar playing is not hard. The guitar is a people's instrument. All it takes is consistency and a little bit of effort.

Q: If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A: That there are no tricks. You're not 'holding the pick wrong,' or anything like that. The trick is there is no trick.

Q: What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A: The prospective student hopefully has goals, both long and short term. They should ask me, the teacher, if I can help them reach those goals. If so, this will probably be the start of an exciting adventure. If not, I can probably refer you to an instructor who is better suited to their needs.
