INTRO - Welcome to Rick's Guitar/Ukulele/Banjo/Bass Studio Webpage. Currently Rick has openings at the Mount Olivet School Of Music M-Th afternoons, and at his home studio (off 40th and 3rd Ave S) M-Th evenings and Fridays. For more information about current availability, call the MOSOM school at 612-767-2262, or Rick himself at 612-807-0377. Travel-to-you lessons are currently unavailable.


LESSONS - Lessons consist of Ear Training, Improv/Jamming/Songwriting skills, and learning popular guitar Riffs/Changes/Parts, and, if the interest exists, Note Reading and Classical. Rick also transcribes songs students want to learn, but can't find on sheet music or internet tabs (as there can be limited availability in the realm of new pop/rock sheet music, and as half of the internet tab out there can contain errors, though it is getting better...) All in all, Rick prefers to teach what the student WANTs to learn, but if they're not quite sure what that is, he helps them figure it out.


MAKE-UPS - To be guaranteed a make-up lesson, Rick should be notified a day in advance by 10pm, though many day-of notifications are still rescheduled, depending on the availability of teacher and student.
