August Classes

This August, I am teaching two guitar classes. Click on the pictures below, or here to learn more!

Bill Monroe was the Father of Bluegrass, and wrote some terrific original instrumentals that bluegrass musicians still play today. In this 3-week class, we're going to take a simplified version of the tune, and turn it into something more advanced. Click here to learn more.

Have you ever wondered what to practice to become a better bluegrass guitar player? Join Andy each week for a guided practice session This is something I've wanted to do for awhile! Grab your guitar and a flatpick and join the fun! Click here to learn more.


Great! I love teaching bluegrass guitar, and would welcome a new student, no matter what level they are at. Many students take weekly or every-other week lessons for a period of time until they have reached a good place where they can continue their studies on their own.  

A good teacher can: 

  • Solve problems and offer solutions 
  • Dispel myths 
  • Show you good techniques
  • Know what the next step is
  • Listen to your goals and knows how to get you there.

I teach in an individualized way. I listen to a student play, evaluate where they are at, and help them sound their best no matter what level they are at. You don't have to get to some mystical pro level to start having fun playing bluegrass music. You don't need 10,000 hours before you can play a song that sounds good.

I am currently booking online lessons through the "Lessons with Marcel" website.
