Skype Guitar Lessons

Skype Guitar Lessons with Joe WalkerIn addition to in-person guitar lessons in Seattle, I also offer webcam guitar lessons to students all over the world. I typically use Skype, but Google Hangouts and other alternatives are possible.

Online Scheduling

When you’re ready, head over to my Scheduling page to reserve a slot. You can find a time that works every week or book a single lesson with no further obligations.

Why Skype Lessons?

The obvious advantage to Skype guitar lessons is that you can learn guitar from a real person without leaving home. Many of my Skype students live in parts of the world that make it inconvenient to commute to an in-person lesson. You also have a wider selection of guitar instructors to choose from; online lessons are exploding in popularity, and there’s a global market of great players offering Skype guitar lessons, each with unique skills and insights.

My own teaching strengths are varied. If you’re a complete beginner with an acoustic guitar, I can get you strumming and singing your favorite songs in a matter of months. (I can’t promise weeks, but it has happened!) If you’re an intermediate/advanced player looking to further your skills in blues, jazz, rock, fingerstyle, folk, or pop, then I can definitely help you out. (I’ve devoted most of my own studies to jazz, earning my Master of Music in jazz guitar in 2011, but I’m always exploring new things!)
