Beginning in March 2009, Hometown Music Studios will be offering private guitar lessons in conjunction with Carolina Foothills Artisan Center. The lessons will be held in our classroom space downstairs. Parking and entrance are in the rear of the building which is accessed from Alabama Avenue (Hwy 221).
Classes are taught by Doug Wood, a seven-year student of Joe Bennett of "The Sparkletones". His teaching style consists of
- basic guitar theory including the basic anatomyof a guitar and finger exercises for strength
- using the genre of music the student is interested in,
- "lifting" which is a technique used to immediately play a song never heard before
- developing the ability to play without reading music
- most importantly, the ability to improvise and develop an individual style for each student
- Lessons are offered Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
- Classes are given once a week for 30 minutes per lesson.
- Classes are $15 per session and full payment ($60) is due for the entire month at the first lesson of each month. There are no exceptions to this rule.
