Also: I still have room for a few more students. Either online (Zoom or Skype) or in person. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 540-533-9685. Beginners most welcome. I also teach guitar and beginning mandolin.
Am reading pretty good for a girl, a massive work. Very informative
I think its a great idea! I’ll follow it.
I look forward to this. Great Idea.
I am enjoying the beginning cds. I am 77 and it is a slow process.
I am looking forward to your blog.
