See the catalog

No student recordings to send to guitar teacher.

Suggestions before to start the lessons

  • First: if you are a real beginner, just send an email with your requirements (favourite styles etc.)
  • Second: if you are not a real beginner, it is better to send a recording to me of an video or audio demonstration with some tunes you like to play.

It is not necessary to make a C.D. Album – do not worry about any mistakes or the sound quality, just record in mp3, you will find the freeware mp3 recorder audacity on the web. As usb microphone, I suggest that one “Go mic” of samson.

The recording will allow me to hear your “Technique” and enable me to adjust the level of teaching for the first and following lessons.
