Are you where you want to be right now with your guitar playing or music career? Do you ever feel frustrated or hopeless that you don’t have what it takes?
I know how frustrating it is to sense that you could be progressing more but just don’t know how. It took me 12 years of trial and error and groping around int the dark before I learned the principles that enabled me to make more progress in 2 years than I had in ten.
I want you to know that you can do it. No matter where you are on your path, you have the power within you to accomplish more than you think or feel is possible. But to do so, you must accept that the biggest bottleneck to your success is, in fact, your mindset.
It is true that lack of opportunity, education, and autonomy can be obstacles but if you want to reach your GREATEST potential, you have to start actively growing yourself.
This means being committed to self-mastery. All musicians eventually learn that music mastery is essentially self-mastery.
Self-mastery is taking ownership of your results in life and using any, and every means available to maximize yourself for a purpose greater than yourself. It has the faith and commitment of developing the inner strength, fortitude, and internal resources necessary to get to that world-class level you desire and ultimately live the life you want.
Your results in life ultimately flow from you. They do not come to you externally.
My mission is about helping you to maximize yourself
I’ve been playing guitar and teaching for 20 years both regionally and internationally. I equip musicians with the knowledge, skills, and resources to excel.
I am extremely grateful to my teacher, mentor, and friend Greg Howe. His music, life, and teaching have significantly influenced my own approach to both teaching and life.
I studied with him for over six years and as a result developed a unique streamlined method of fretboard mastery that is already helping many of my students.
His mentorship was instrumental in not only developing my skills on the guitar but shaping my personal beliefs about life and I want to spread the teachings and knowledge that I gained as part of my personal evolution and for the benefit of the greater good.
Lessons, Mini-Course, and Resources
I write about music competence and self-mastery on the Musician’s Insights Blog. If you are ready to invest in developing your talents and creating a life that is filled with adventure, challenges, growth, and fulfillment then click the button below and schedule a lesson.
If you are new here and unfamiliar with what I do then below is an opportunity to sign up for a 5 part course where I teach key concepts that have enabled me to go from average to savage. I outline secrets that have helped me to tear down the barriers that I faced on the guitar and life and go from a dead end job, fat, and depressed to performing for medium to large size crowds in Japan, physically fit, conversationally fluent in Japanese and an active surfer who lives minutes from the beach.
