Music Lessons

Music Lessons are by appointment and cover a very wide range over a period of time. Some students require more hours than others. Each student is taught one on one.

Lessons are available by the hour or half hour depending on your schedule. I recommend an hour weekly for those who desire accelerated advancements in their skills, thoery and comprehension.

Some resources for purchasing good equipment, I can recommend the following: Bass Northwest, Bob Gollihur, and Acme Sound

For those seeking music lessons I serve the entire Treasure Valley from my studio in Star, Idaho. Students are welcome from Boise, Caldwell, Eagle, Kuna, Meridian, Middleton, Nampa, Star and from wherever you wish to travel from. Please call or E-Mail for more information.
