Why Should You Learn Guitar with Brad?


"


...Brad was able to break down guitar concepts in a way immediately applicable to me, and instantly useful in any musical situation. Even though I had a classical background playing brass instruments and piano, the guitar quickly became the central instrument in my career. I’ve since won 2 Emmy awards, scored films, played in countless sessions, done hundreds of shows a year, and am currently a full time record producer/songwriter – all built on the foundation of being able to pick up a guitar, and play...

When I started guitar lessons, my main goal was to learn music theory and to improve my playing because I had been stuck in a rut for a few years. At my first lesson, I had no clue how to tell what the key signature was, how to build chords, what a “real” major scale was(not a major pentatonic scale), arpeggios, and I can go on and on. We started slow and just constantly built on what I had learned the prior week. Now, I can look at a key signature and immediately know what key it’s in...
