If you don't know my work, the video below shows some teaching tips for Blind Blake's ragtime techniques. However, my lessons include all styles of acoustic blues. If you're a long time subscriber, check out the text below the video.

After experimenting with Skype and other media, I came across a site called Concert Window. Actually, a fan asked me if I'd do a live concert over the internet as he would never get to see me play live (lives in the U.S - I live in France).

I realized that this could be a great way to hold a live tuition session in a 'Master Class' type format

What really interests me is that payment level is set by the artist, so it's very cost effective for students! I've set the price at $5 for a 40 minute class and here's how works:
  • Bookmark this page - this is where the class schedules and sign up links will appear.
  • When I schedule a class (probably once a week or so) I'll post  a link to download the tab you'll need during the class
  • I'll also record the session and provide a link here to view it (or download it), so you can refer to it at your leisure.

Sounds good to me, and I'm excited about it (well, as excited as i get)!

The class would take this format - 10 minute intro, song performance and technique demos/discussion. We'd go through the tablature and take a detailed look at how to approach the 'tricky' bits. Viewers can post questions from their computer as they watch - for the last 10 minutes or so, I'd pick some of the common questions and answer them live, or demonstrate what was requested.

First class is called 'The Perfect Slow Blues In E' and show how to make an arrangement exciting - how to make it unique, professional and - exciting!

SPECIAL NOTE: Some of you might have viewed the last class on ConcertWindow - the above class is using a different site, but very similar and probably more friendly! Also, Paypal can be used, so it's more flexible. However, if enough people asked me for the Concert Window option, I'll schedule the same class on that platform 90 mins before the above class.)
