Home for Guitar Instruction

Welcome to my Guitar Instruction site! In addition to lessons, articles, thoughts and advice about learning and playing guitar, you  will find comprehensive instructional materials for beginning through advanced guitar players. Feel free to design your own program using the instructional materials (guitar instruction videos, books, CD’s, online courses, practice aids and a digital library), check out the lessons on the site and sign up to get free weekly lessons by email.

I can also help you in person at a workshop or in personalized intensives or private lessons, which I teach at my Texas Hill Country studio outside of Wimberley. (The beautiful, quiet setting, lovely horses and various other critters are an added bonus!) And, if it’s not a good time to travel to Texas, join me for private or group lessons via webcam, which are a lot of fun and amazingly effective!





To inquire about private lessons or workshops with Charlotte, contact us.
