The Sean Clancy School of Modern Guitar
Q: What can I expect to learn?
A: Teaching guitar since 1987, I've soaked up a huge collection of practical appliable theory and can demonstrate the more daunting feats of guitar technique. There plenty of players that can play - but being able to play and teach well is why you will come to get lessons with me. I can teach all styles, theory, recording techniqes as well as basic keyboard if needed.
Q: What do I need to Bring?
A: A Guitar, A binder to put your A4 handouts into, a USB pendrive, and I also advise a cell phone, so you can take a video example of what to practice during the week.
Q: Who can come?
A: I take complete beginners to very advanced. A number of well known guitarists have come through my lessons. The most recent was a student who couldn't really play at the start, but after 3 years of lessons with me, went on to win the best musician in the national rockquest competition.
If you have a daughter who is under 18 and wants to learn, the rules are that they need to be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.
Q: I can't make the lesson
A: Lessons are never cancelled. They are postponed. 24 hours notice for the postponement is mandatory otherwise the lesson is counted as a paid lesson. This also covers if the student is sick. We can make the lesson up on another more agreeable time during the week (but you have to give me notice of this prior to 24 hours of the lesson). For postponed lessons, they must be made up within 3 months or they become void.
Q: I have decided to stop lessons.
A: I'm sad to see you go, however, whatever fees you have paid are not refundable. I would advise that you finish your last lesson on the end of the month.
Q: My student attends school. Do you stop lessons during school holidays?
A All lessons continue year round. This includes public holidays. School holidays are a great time to get some practice in! If you are going away during a holiday, Please let me know.
Q: I want to get as good as fast as possible.
A: Excellent. This is the kind of student that gives me job satisfaction. I recommend that you practice, practice, practice. I can lead a horse to water but I can't make it drink.
Note: Although there are some rather set rules here, I am nice, so feel free to call me or chat during the lesson if you want to ask for any considerations. If you have are a student who has any questions about your lesson that you don't understand, you can call me!
