    Introduction
    FIRST 1 HOUR LESSON FREE!!! $60 MONTH SPECIAL!!! My name is Blake Burleson and I have been teaching guitar lessons at all levels for well over 20 years. I have taught both at music stores (Mar's Music and Brookmay's Music) as well as at my home, and personal lessons at my students location (Skype lessons are available upon request!). I specialize in beginners to advance guitar students and I'm fully qualified at all levels and all musical styles (how to read music, play and perform standard guitar compositions, popular songs at students request, all rock/pop styles including lead and rhythm, classical, fingerstyle, performing and many other skills).

    My Teaching Background
    My qualifications are the many years of teaching experience, music minor obtained at Texas A&M University (class of 1993), two years of concentrated classical curriculum at Collin College, studied and performed in Madrid, Spain (certified diploma obtained in 2009), studied with the National Guitar Workshop over the past two years (earned 3 separate certifications in Austin, Texas. and New Milford, Connecticut). Also I have over twenty years of performing live as a soloist and in several cover/original church groups, contemporary, jazz, rock, and country bands.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    My teaching approach is straight from the book I require all students to begin with, "Mel Bay's Modern Guitar Method" books 1 thru 5. The other half of my students lesson times is dedicated to specifically what style and songs my students request to learn. All students learn how to read standard music notation, chord charts, fretboard charts, and guitar tablature.

    Rates And Availability
    All lessons are given locally at my home in BCS. My rates are $15 per 1/2 hour and $20 for 1 full hour. $60 MONTH SPECIAL!!! I highly recommend the 1 hour lesson's for all students although students do progress perfectly well enrolled in the 1/2 hour lesson. All younger students parent's are welcome to sit in on all lessons and references available upon request. Please contact me for any questions or availabilities. Professional audio production is also available.
