About the lesson

Music is a slow thing to learn, it deals with both rational and emotional parts of us, so don't expect so much of yourself so soon! You're already in the right place here, looking for mentorship on this website. A good mentor will accelerate your learning a lot. Don't be afraid to change mentors regularly! And don't be afraid to stay with someone you connect with! What you can expect from me is similar to the classical Suzuki methodology which treats music as a language, because in my opinion, music is a language. In the first lesson I will play you some famous guitar players and maybe listen to some of your own idols. That way, we have a picture to aim for together. The most important thing for you to do is to really listen to how you sound, and listen to others, then grow from the contrast. Technique will come in time, don't worry :) just ask me if you're curious about something in particular!

About Barney

I played classical guitar as a child, and that gave me a base in reading music and musical technique, but I became frustrated with classical music because it only gives you the 'how' and not the 'why'. If you have the desire to play music in a social way, like a jam, then you have to walk down a road that is different from classical. For me, I became interested in jazz, in particular French swing jazz (manouche/gypsy jazz). So I can tell you a bit about that. I studied this music in university in New Zealand. But really all music is connected! I look forward to developing and hearing your unique style.
