METHODS, STYLES, & LESSONS

The goal at Prestige Guitar is to keep the lessons fresh, interesting, and to ultimately guide the students to educate themselves as they gain experience and familiarity with the instrument. With lessons that are tailored to the styles our students wish to pursue, we can build upon their strengths and focus on opportunities to improve weaker areas. Every student is unique. For some, music becomes a passion, others, a new hobby.  Whatever the goal, Prestige Guitar is here to help!

 

Depending on the wishes and skill level of the student. Lessons will be personalized to the student and what is needed to achieve their goals. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Cole is always prepared, while being responsive to what I want to work on. He has also made music theory MUCH more understandable than i thought possible. I enjoy working with him.

My 6 year old daughter attended her first loog guitar lesson. I was worried how it will workout in online format. Cole is very patient, kept my daughter engaged and left her inspired to keep trying. She was able to follow instructions and she now believe guitar is fun and easy.

My 8 year old had a great time! Cole was really careful to figure out what he already knew as this was the first lesson, and had a great structure moving through the lesson. K can't wait to do it again!

Mr. Cole has been wonderful with our 6 year old son who is just starting to learn to play on his Loog guitar. Mr. Cole has been able to figure out (remotely!) what our son likes to play and what motivates him to learn. They seem to have a great time working together and my son has improved a lot in a short period of time. Mr. Cole is very patient, good-natured, and clearly knows how to teach young ones! Thank you, Mr. Cole!
