I allow a 2-hour block of time the first time we meet for a lesson. It allow me to get to know you—who you listen to, favorite players, experience, short term goals (what do you want to do on the guitar in a year that you can't do now), long term goals (where do you see guitar and music in you life 5 to 10 years from now). I then adapt my curriculum program to your goals.
