Note from Stanton:
Over the years I have learned how to teach beginners of any age… trombone, guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, banjo and mandolin, to learn to love the instrument and to begin to become proficient. My expert areas on the guitar are jazz, blues and pop singing with guitar accompaniment, country blues, and modern fingerstyle. I teach beginning through intermediate classical guitar, Electric Guitar, classic rock and current styles. I teach any age and instrument jazz improvisation, and improvisation over any style of music through the use of pentatonic scales, modes, and arpeggios. I accept students of all ages. For students under 9 years of age, I would prefer that the parent attend lessons with the student in order to be able to reinforce techniques in the home.
