Skype or Zoom Guitar Lessons
With online guitar lessons (using Skype/Zoom) distance & location are no longer an obstacle in studying with a great guitar teacher! I have been teaching guitar lessons for 30 years and am so excited by the opportunities Skype has created for me to connect with students around the globe. It has been an amazing experience to be able to teach so many guitar players in so many countries!
Fast Track Your Learning 1 on 1
There is no doubt that the amount of free resources for learning the guitar online is huge. However, the absolute fastest method of learning any musical instrument is still, and will always be, one-on-one instruction with a knowledgeable, experienced instructor guiding you every step of the way.
Why Skype/Zoom Guitar Lessons?
Guitar can be a challenging instrument. And learning it solely through Youtube Videos can leave you with tons of unanswered questions and ultimately frustration. One-on-one lessons allow your instructor to give you direct feedback on your playing – something that free online lessons simply can’t provide!
Our Guitar Lessons via Skype or Zoom will almost be the same as sitting in the same room together! For lesson materials I use the powerful Soundslice interactive TAB/notation system to share lessons with you. Soundslice allows you to slow down the TAB, transpose instantly and much more. Backing tracks and video are integrated into most lessons as well. You are also encouraged to record the lessons directly from the Zoom program.
How Do Online Guitar Lessons work?
It’s easy! You just need a few basics:
1. Computer, tablet or smartphone with a webcam and stable internet connection.
2. Skype or Zoom installed on your computer/device. (Download Skype) (Download Zoom)
3. A Paypal account for secure payments.

I had 6 different teachers before. And then I found Rick, he is the only one who has all what I was searching for and more (Blues and RnB sounds also good when explained by Rick), and his true knowledge of styles and sounds really gave me the wish to play and learn. I have spent less than a year with him, but I already play differently than I used to. So what I think of Rick is that I was lucky to find him.
Rick is an expert guitarist and awesome teacher. He follows your progress attentively and always pushes you out of your comfort zone. Four months ago I only knew a few open chords, and now I can switch barre chords and 7th chords smoothly with very practical music theories under my belt. Lessons with Rick are never boring and always informative. If you’re serious about learning guitar you’ve come to the right place!
