A Chat with James Flood Guitar Lessons
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I have my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in classical guitar and I have 24 years of experience teaching private guitar. My lessons are designed around the goals of the student. I give students a solid foundation in technique so he or she can get the most out their hands, all in a patient environment.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
The student must have their own guitar and, if taking classical, their own footstand. He or she purchases the appropriate book from me.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
To do what I love, music, and the passing of music on to others.
What do you love most about your job?
I love witnessing students realize their goals for the guitar, whether those goals are very modest or very ambitious. Beginner students sometimes come in hardly believing that they could one day play the guitar. It is very satisfying to see their dream gradually become a reality.
