Private Guitar Lessons With JL Fulks

Thank you for your interest in taking lessons with me! Passing on my knowledge is a vital aspect of my job as an independent artist. I am excited to share with you what I have come to love about playing music. Our time together will be enjoyable, but the most important goal is for you to leave having learned something new - or improved at a skill.

Our first lesson will be an assessment to figure out your overall skills at guitar, songwriting, and/or marketing. Before our lesson, please be prepared with some specific skills you’d like to learn, and/or a list of questions you’d like to ask me. Once we have spent some time together, I will have a better understanding of what you're looking to learn. This session will also help me identify the teaching methods which are most effective for your individual needs. All of my students start at different skill levels, which is why it’s important to communicate ahead of time what your lesson goals are. That way, I can prepare a lesson plan which is personalized to maximize your individual potential as an artist.

Before you schedule your lesson, please make sure you read and understand my cancellation policy (below), as I am not able to make exceptions for any circumstance.
