Students receive a Professional Tool Kit

All students will receive a professional tool kit (yours to keep). In addition, we will provide all supplies & study materials for each student. In other words, we will never nickel & dime you for things you need during class.

Classes are limited to 4 students

We limit all of our Workshops to 4 students. Training is hands-on, our goal is for every student to fully comprehend the curriculum. Learning in a small class, you won’t have to fight the crowd to get a question answered. 


Grading is based on three types of exam; written, performance and presentation. Students with a grade of 80% or higher will receive a certificate of completion. Students who score 88% or higher will receive a letter of recommendation.

Pickup Adjustment

When the pickups are adjusted correctly, your guitar will sound great. However, when adjusted incorrectly, you may experience load pops, intonation issues, string rattle or weak output.

Active pickup systems are found in both Electric & Acoustic guitars. We will explore both Piezo and Magnetic (active) pickup systems, and ways to combine multiple systems. Including the Taylor ES-1 & ES-2 Systems.
