The level of achievement the student has determines the approach I take. I teach the notes on the strings and frets, how to read music, and basic music theory. I educate about the guitar, her music and heritage. I teach the guitar.
I have been learning and playing for 35 years, and teaching in Omaha for 27years. With students from 6 to 80, I have never had a student I couldn't teach. I love what I do, and when I am teaching, the student has my total attention.
Cancellations need to be made 24 hours before a lesson. If a lesson is cancelled less than 24 hours before scheduled, the regular lesson fee is charged. The only exception is if someone gets sick within the time before the lesson.

Her teaching style is perfect for me, with emphasis on the basics but freedom to explore once the basics are up to standard. I recommend Char to anyone wanting to improve their guitar skills.
My son has taken guitar lessons with Char for almost three years. We love her. She is a gifted guitarist and has proven to be the very best first teacher for my son. When giving lessons, she is patient, considerate, and compassionate. We highly recommend her.
