Online Remote Guitar Lessons via Zoom, Facetime, or Skype


How Online Remote Lessons Work
Live one-on-one video lessons let you learn from your home by using a tablet, computer or TV. The main difference from traditional lessons is that I am not in the same room with you. This means I can’t physically move your hand into the right position. But I can show you how I am holding my guitar, and then I can see how you are holding yours and discuss this.
Because of audio delays and latency we can’t both play at the same time. And noise cancellation limits 2 way audio transmissions. But we can easily work around this by taking turns playing and I can send you mp3 audio tracks and sheet music as needed.

I have had great success with live one-on-one video lessons via Zoom, FaceTime and Skype.
My Zoom lessons are very secure and will not be interrupted- the link I send you for the meeting is password protected and I use a "Zoom waiting room".

This means even if someone gets the link somehow, they can't enter the meeting unless I let them in.
I have found that Zoom has superior audio/video quality as well as some great tools like file sharing, audio sharing, screen sharing etc.

Now you can have lessons on your schedule regardless of your location. You will receive the instruction you need to rock out in the comfort of your own home, hotel, or anywhere in the world!
*Travel is no longer a barrier to your musical career!
*Bragging rights for being super tech-savvy!
Live one on one online guitar lessons are great for people unable to find a guitar teacher in their local area.
They also give you flexibility over when you want to learn. Want to learn at 1:00am? It would be pretty hard to find a tutor locally wanting to teach at that time but it’s very likely somebody on the other side of the planet will be able to teach you. Depending on where you are located this time difference can be an advantage.


Why Live one on one online Guitar Lessons are better than a video lesson.
You can interact, ask questions, receive answers and have someone watch your technique and offer advice on how to improve.
Avoid bad habits.
Video lessons just let you watch someone else.
Live one on one online Guitar Lessons can be customized to your style and what you want to learn!
