"He is really enjoying his lessons"

"Thanks for the feedback Steve (Gordon NSW Australia). He is really enjoying his lessons and getting great enjoyment out of learning new music. It's great to have lessons that are relevant to what kids like instead of learning music that has no relevance. Thanks for your help.

" I am finding the lessons very good"

Hi David,
               As emailed prior to Christmas, I have started lessons at Penrith with Michael Essery. I completed the first 2 lessons before Christmas and start back tonight for my 3rd lesson. I am finding the lessons very good and have got back into steady practice using the G4 practice log to record practice times. I am also keeping a more detailed record of time spent on each skill each day. I have been trying to teach myself the Guitar from books for the last 3 years with no success. I found chords very difficult and ended up just learning some songs from tabs but never got the rhythm correct. I would practice for 2 months and than stop for 2 months due to frustration. The first thing Michael did was show me the classical position for guitar playing, which has greatly helped with chords. I was self taught and ended up playing with the neck below the body which restricted my wrist and made the chords very hard to form and put a lot of pressure on my wrist. I am now trying to start all over with this new position. I am so far very happy with Michael's teaching. I would love to play the guitar and understand rhythm much better, and just hope that at 60 years old I have not left it to late.

Best Regards
Gary Layton
