Skype

Skype Guitar Lessons for all levels & ages, I cover a variety of styles including Rock, Blues, Metal, & Jazz. Skype or Facetime lessons require a computer or laptop, broadband Internet connection, webcam and microphone. I have lots of information on my main Skype page so either click on the picture above or click here

 

Online

 

My online guitar lessons cover specific ideas and learning skills. whether it be introductions to a style of music or a short course on a certain technique, like sweeping, or legato. In this section you will find information on Theory, Technique and expanding your chops.

 

Free

In the Free section you will find lots of information that everyone can learn and enjoy. They can either be in the form of a video or written music theory explaining a certain topic or element of playing the guitar. New material is being added all the time so keep checking in.

The Technical Setup for Skype or Facetime

There are plenty of upgrades you can make to your equipment to improve the quality of your session, but I’ll start with a bare bones setup which should be enough to get you off the ground.

Here’s the minimum setup you’ll need:

  • High-speed internet connection to get online
  • Computer, with enough processing power to send and receive streaming video and audio (anything on today’s market can handle it)
  • Webcam, either built-in on a laptop or bought separately
  • Microphone, again either built-in or separate
  • A Skype account. Click here to create an account

Learning online is a very important decision to make, to help you decide here are some points you should consider.

Quality of the teacher:  I believe it is better to be taught with an excellent teacher than it is to have in-person lessons with a mediocre teacher. Using online resources gives students even more options to choose from when looking for a teacher since they are not restricted to their small local region.

 

Weekly Convenience:   Students don’t have to travel 10 or 20 minutes to their teacher’s studio.  Also, when a student is 5 or 10 minutes late, I give them a courtesy call in case they forgot, but if they live 15 minutes away and they have a 30 or even 45 minute session, it’s hardly worth it for them to come late. Learning online means no missed lessons due to forgetfulness since the student and teacher can connect on Skype 30 seconds after the courtesy call.

 

Convenience of Recording: While students always have the option to record their face-to-face lessons, that never happens (at least, in the history of my teaching).  But students can easily record the session for review at a later time with software like Evaer and SuperTinTin (audio only: Pamela, MP3 Skype Recorder, and VodBurner).
