Online Lessons for Classical Guitar (Webcam, Skype, Video Response)

Bradford Werner offers online lessons for classical guitar via webcam, Skype, or video response / feedback. I welcome students of all levels and ages from absolute beginners to high level players looking for performance feedback. It’s easy, just email me, find a time, and go. The lessons are friendly, productive, and educational. I believe every student should leave the lesson feeling optimistic and enthused. I look forward to working with you.

Video Feedback Lessons  – Submit a video of yourself playing and receive a video response lesson and some written notes from Bradford. The video response lesson will be around 10-15 minutes long and will be positive and constructive. The response lesson will be an unlisted YouTube video so only you will see it. Submit your video to me either via download or unlisted on Youtube. I prefer that you submit some technique (scales, arpeggios) and one piece (preferably something from my site). Try to keep the video under 10-15 minutes. Cost: $90 CAND.

eBook Feedback Videos – An ungraded exam but all in a positive and encouraging format. A set of required technique and repertoire for each of my educational eBooks to let you know if you are ready for the next level or if you should go back and review. This will make sure you don’t go to the next book with any bad habits. It will also let you know what your are doing well with. You submit a video with all the materials and I’ll send you a video feedback and written adjudication. Cost $90 CAND.

Skype Lessons – I am currently full for Skype lessons but contact me for teacher recommendations.
