Guitar and Bass Lessons with Andrew Wright
It takes a great deal of strength and endurance to play the guitar or bass at all, let alone to play a four hour gig. Proper technique allows a musician to get the most from their instrument with the least effort.
These are the intangibles… the things that turn a series of notes into a work of art: Dynamics, Articulation, Interpretation, etc. These are lifelong pursuits for any musician.
What do Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Beethoven all have in common? They were all amazing improvisers. Essentially the art of spontaneous composition, it is a skill that is developed through practice and grows with your understanding of your instrument and of music itself.
The answers to most of your musical questions lie here. Be prepared though, it is a can of worms and every answer leads to more questions.
It is seen as a tragedy when a child graduates high school without the ability to read a newspaper, yet a majority of guitar players can’t read or write music. The fact is that when auditioning for a high school or college band, the best sight-reader almost always gets the gig. The same is true for professional studio work and touring bands.
The most common request a music teacher hears is, “will you teach me how to play my favorite song?” Andrew’s answer is, “Sure, but how about I help you figure it out instead?”
Lessons are scheduled in half-hour time-slots, with one lesson per week at a prearranged day and time. Most students find one lesson a week to be adequate but a few of Andrew’s more motivated students have elected to schedule two lessons a week.
Tuition is paid on a monthly basis at $100* per time-slot. First month’s tuition will be prorated at $25* per lesson. Tuition is due prior to a student’s first lesson of each month.
*Rates are subject to change.
New students may choose to pay week to week for the first month while they get to know Andrew and determine whether he is the right teacher for them.
Acceptable forms of payment include cash or check. You may also pay directly from your bank account by clicking the "View & Pay Invoice" link on your AW Lessons invoice.
