Hey there, this is Dennis Gruenling. I am glad you are interested in working with me one-on-one via some Skype lessons!
Working one-on-one with an instructor allows for much more feedback and growth during the learning process, which I have found to be a huge factor for a student’s progress.
I have been teaching lessons and workshops almost as long as I have been performing, and have done so in a variety of different settings such as in a private home studio, at harmonica conventions, as part of harmonica camps, blues workshops, blues festivals, and numerous other events worldwide. While my 25+ years of teaching & playing experience have allowed me to work up a set of techniques and skill sets that I base my private lessons on, our one-on-one time will be focused specifically on what YOU are working on, what YOUR skill level is, what YOUR strengths & weaknesses are, how YOU learn, and what YOUR goals are on the harp. After all, this is one of the biggest benefits of working with an expert one-on-one…and I take my job seriously, although it will also be fun along the way!
Another big part of what I will do with our one-on-one time is to get you working towards and thinking more along the lines of building your “musical intuition”, which will help you get closer to becoming an improvising musician with good instincts (meaning, with results that sound musical and expressive.)
My Skype lessons will usually be held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and some Saturdays. I will offer 1/2 hour lessons for $55 and 1 hour lessons for $100. The lessons can be purchased in 4-lesson bundles, this way we will have more time to focus on your specific needs and get some results.
If you are interested, please just shoot me an email via the form below, and let me know what you’d like to work on during our one-on-one time.
I am looking forward to helping you get further on your musical journey!
