In-Person Guitar Lessons

with Deanne Newkirk

Deanne meets each student where they are at in terms of experience and skill level. If this means starting right at the beginning with guitar and music – then that is perfect.

Both in person and video-based lessons are offered.

In-Person Guitar Lessons

with Deanne Newkirk

  • Deanne meets each student where they are at in terms of experience and skill level. If this means starting right at the beginning with guitar and music – then that is perfect. If you have played guitar in the past and are wishing to get back into playing – then we will dust off your skills, fill in the gaps and keep moving forward. Deanne always tries to incorporate some of the music that you love into lessons. She also creates opportunities for students to play in front of small groups should you so wish. Each lesson is followed-up with an email with the material covered and helpful guidance. Students are responsible for printing the material and placing it into a binder at home. If you know of other adults or children who may be interested in lessons – referrals very much appreciated!
