Student says, “It is never too late to learn to play guitar.”

I love listening to music and singing along. I was one of those who would say I wish I could play guitar.

And then one day I decided I would stop wishing and take lessons. I was particular who I chose for a guitar teacher. I had learned piano as a child and did not want to repeat that experience with boring scales and repetition. I was not interested in taking lessons from a typical music school.

I was extremely lucky to find Rick. He is able to intuitively understand what I need to learn to play. We choose songs that keep me interested and I am excited to learn. I learn the different chords and riffs by playing (and singing) the songs. Rick keeps me learning at a pace that is well suited to me. He gently gets me to slow down when I am rushing. He has an amazing ability to instinctively set the pace for my ability to learn.

In a few short months, I am playing a range of songs and singing my heart out. I am not quite ready to go on the road- though I would if I had Rick by my side- singing with me and doing back up! Did I mention he is a great singer!

I never thought I would feel so passionate about learning guitar. I have Rick to thank for it. If you are nervous about learning guitar but always wanted to play, don’t keep putting it off.
