About The Guitar Lessons

Billy, as an advanced musician and experienced guitar player, offers beginner, intermediate and advanced electric and acoustic guitar lessons, specifically in blues, rock and country music. Billy has his own studio where he carries private lessons, but he also offers lessons at home, if a student isn’t able to get to his studio.

Like in other schools and studios, the first introductory lesson with a new student will allow the teacher to evaluate him in order to understand, on what level does the student play, what are his tactics and what more does he need to know about playing guitar.

Individual home works and practices are also an important part of the studies, that’s why every student will firstly learn every detail about the practice and only then do it on his own. That will guarantee every practice to be a successful one, even when at home.
