String theory posits that the energy required for a guitar anthem to stir subatomic particles is proportional to the number of years it takes the broken-up band that wrote it to stage a reunion tour.

Profiled in the Lincoln Journal Star for his musical endeavors, Lincoln Guitar Lessons owner Tim Woosley is a double-decade guitar veteran who segues his performance and recording experience into helping beginning strummers produce six-string soundtracks to their lives. Customized to the aspiring guitarist's individual goals, each lesson conveys the basics of chords and progressions without clouding the heart and soul of their instrument. Students enjoy intense, one-on-one sessions, as well as philosophical discussions on how much longer “Free Bird” may have been had Tolstoy written it, in the comfort of Woosley’s recently remodeled studio.
Lincoln School of Music
As a small child, Tim Woosley made a cardboard cutout of a guitar, which he pretend-strummed to songs by The Monkees. By age 13, he upgraded to an actual guitar so that his father could teach him all eight minutes of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." The first lesson was just the first step for this passionate musician, as Tim has played the six-string ever since, from guitarist in local bands to founding instructor of Lincoln School of Music.
Versed in guitar, piano, and voice, Tim and his fellow teachers customize one-on-one lessons around each student's individual goals, from learning basic chords to complex riffs and scales. They also lead group lessons, and invite students to perform a piece of their choosing at twice-yearly, low-pressure recitals.
