My Guitar Mentorship Program is currently accepting new students!
Here is a list of a few things you’re going to need before contacting me.
- Webcam and Microphone
- SOLID internet connection
- Zoom account (Like Skype, but way better!)
- Metronome (you can use an online one if you do not have a physical one)
- GuitarPro or TuxGuitar
Once you are ready, we will start by arranging a student interview to determine what your specific needs are on the guitar, as well as schedule the first session.
My teaching schedule is from Saturday to Sunday, from 10:00AM PST until 6:00PM PST.
My current rates are as follows:
Guitar Mentorship & Musical Development: $75USD Per Hour
I usually expect Mentorship Program students to take a minimum of two sessions in a month, otherwise the time and money investment simply isn’t worth it for the student.
Lessons are to be paid for up front via PayPal before the booked lesson starts.
I require a minimum of 48 hours notice for cancellation.
If you have cancelled on time, we will reschedule for an appropriate time the next week, or in certain circumstances the next day; schedule permitting.
How is this any different from any other guitar teacher?
I go through the motions of getting to know each and every student and cater to every single need or want they could have when it comes to the guitar. I am not teaching out of a book! Every single student gets personalized lessons. It’s the most effective way to learn, as far as I am concerned!
$75USD per session is steep. Why is it so expensive?
Because the lessons are so individualized, the time it takes to cater to every mentee’s needs on my end is substantially more than just regular guitar lessons. That being said, I also expect my students to ante up so to speak and be very diligent with their practice.
How does it work?
We start off by setting up an appointment for a student interview to meet and discuss wants and needs on the guitar. After that, iwe schedule a session together using Zoom, which is a free video conferencing application. I used to use Skype, but Zoom has better bandwidth and audio quality. Zoom also allows students to record the session; which is super beneficial! After we book a lesson, the student then pays for the upcoming session and we take it from there! Easy peasy!
I’m not a shredder like you, how would your lessons help me?
Whether you are predominantly a rhythm player, metal player, funk player, classic rock player or otherwise, I have helped someone like you. I have spent a good 5 and a half years teaching people from all walks of life and have developed great strategies to bring a lot more enjoyment and zest into ones playing. If you want to become a shredder? I can help. If you want to songwrite better? I can help. If you want to understand what it takes to make music a career, and want a guiding hand? I can help!
My rate for guest solos is $250USD.
The price includes 3 revisions as well, as I do believe in serving your vision and your song as well as I can.
You can expect a 2-3 week lead time depending upon availability.
I have my own home studio in which I record my music, and use a Kemper Profiler / Neural DSP Suite(s) which allows me to give you DI, dry, and effected version of the solo so that you can edit it in in any way you could possibly want in the final studio mixing and mastering sessions.
In this way your band could be on the other side of the planet and could still receive a very high quality solo from yours truly without having to deal with any kind of other recording studio or any of the issues inherent in flying someone out to do a solo.

Guitar Gear Related Video Reviews
I have spent many years on YouTube cultivating an audience that knows my brand and who I am: a trustworthy, slightly excited and talkative chap who plays the guitar with great enthusiasm and love. As such, my video reviews convert many of my audience to real world sales for companies, because my audience knows me to be fully honest. I have reviewed guitar pedals and guitars alike, with amplifiers being a new focus for me going into this year and beyond.
My YouTube Video rates are as follows:
Video Demo of Product: $175USD
Video Review of Product: $250USD
Video AND Demo of Product: $350USD
The idea behind having a Demo of a product is for brand and product exposure – I create brand new music, or use some original music with the product to showcase it’s utility in the real world of a working musician.
It is why some of my demo video’s have a ton more views than even reviews – they show what the product can do in a real mix!
Reviews have been a staple of the industry for years and as such I have also steadily been developing my reviewing style for years.
Again, I have been cultivating my audience for years in a manner that is honest and direct and that converts to real world sales very regularly. I am proud of what I have been able to accomplish with my YouTube channel thus far, and my rates are very competitive in comparison to many others, whilst my video quality is in the upper tier of professional YouTuber’s.
Do you have an idea for a review or a demo?
