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, Note Reading, and Classical Guitar styles. Rick transcribes all songs students want to learn, but can't find via published 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 tabs out there can contain errors ...) 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 that 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.
