Guitar lessons everyone can enjoy
With decades of playing, and years of teaching, I can help students overcome guitar related learning challenges and have fun, too!
About the Curricula
Students will be learning beginning guitar from the Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1, 2nd ed. or intermediate guitar from the Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 2, 2nd ed. by Will Schmid and Greg Koch. The CD’s are optional but they do provide enrichment and reinforcement.
About Book 1, an Amazon reviewer wrote, “…Students enjoy its easy-to-follow format that gives them a solid music education while letting them play songs right away. Book 1 provides beginning instruction including tuning, 1st position melody playing, C, G, G7, D7, and Em chords, rhythms through eighth notes, solos and ensembles and strumming. It features a chord chart and traditional songs.”
“Book 2 continues the instruction started in Book 1 and covers: Am, Dm, A, E, F and B7 chords; power chords; fingerstyle guitar; syncopations, dotted rhythms, and triplets; Carter style solos; bass runs; pentatonic scales; improvising; tablature; 92 great songs, riffs and examples; notes in first and second position; and more!” ~ Amazon book description
New course! I am now also offering Intro to the Guitar for the Visually Impaired (2nd edition). Please contact me for further information.
Each lesson will start on the half-hour and end after 25 minutes. I charge $30/lesson or a family discount of $20 per sibling. I prefer Venmo for non-charter students.

I AM SWITCHING TO VIRTUAL (online) LESSONS UNTIL AFTER THE THREAT OF THE CORONAVIRUS PASSES. THANK YOU!
“Elizabeth taught beginning guitar to my 13 year old son and was very encouraging… I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone as a fun and knowledgeable guitar teacher.”
“Elizabeth taught a beginning guitar class at our home-school co-op…My daughter loved every minute! We are amazed at her progress in such a short time, from never having played a guitar before. Elizabeth genuinely loves to share her knowledge and has a sincere interest in each student.”
