Red Guitar is excited to announce guitar lessons, live and one-on-one, using Skype over the internet in the comfort of your own home.
The opportunity to teach out of my home studio using the Skype format is exciting. I’ve had great success with online Skype guitar lessons in the past and I’ve wanted to do more of this for quite some time but have been very busy focusing on my Red Guitar in studio sessions.
Now with the arrival and challenges of the COVID-19 virus, the opportunity to ramp up online Skype lessons presents itself in a big way.
Quarantine has forced all of us to make wise, safe decisions and to do things more creatively. This is my way of providing the same fun guitar lessons to all students without putting anyone in harm’s way.
These Red Guitar "home studio sessions" are a very close second to the Red Guitar in studio sessions and you will find the experience to be very familiar.
You will still enjoy live, one-on-one lessons with me and we will pick up and continue our guitar sessions right where we left off in the "Red Guitar in studio."
The obvious difference is the distance between us. But with current technology, high speed internet, modern computers and Smart Phones, it’s never been easier to communicate online.
Most current model laptops, tablets, desktops and Smart Phones are already video and audio compliant with everything already pre-installed ready to go.
If by chance yours isn't and you have to get a camera with a microphone, the Logitech C270 is about $30. The sound and video quality is amazing.
In fact, some students may prefer this style of teaching because there is no commute time and the lessons are truly in the comfort of their own homes.
Let’s pick up where we left off and have some fun!
Thank you so much for all your continued support.
What Will You Need?
In most cases, laptops and Smart-phones come with webcams and microphones already installed. If you happen to need one though, the Logitech C270 pictured above is an excellent choice with amazing sound and video.
Don't be worried... online you can interact with me, ask questions, share ideas and we can play our guitars.

It's Lesson Time...
Watch for your online Guitar Lesson reminder. I will send you an email 60 minutes before your lesson.
Then about 5 minutes before we begin the lesson you should:
• Sign into Skype on your computer, laptop, tablet or Smartphone and get ready for my call.
• Test you webcam and microphone in the Skype app to make sure they're working.
• Tune your guitar (Standard tuning EADGBe) unless otherwise specified by a continuing lesson.
• Make sure you use headphones or earbuds (plug them in) during the lesson so you won't get a feedback loop from your computer or phone speakers to your microphone.
• That's it!
Time to play some guitar...
See you soon!
