Lessons with a Master Luthier

Guitar Making Course Information

1) It is important that the student has somewhere to work at home as I do not have the space for the guitar to be constructed in my workshop.

2) The student comes to my workshop for a lesson, returns home to complete the task before returning for the next lesson.

3) Each lesson lasts for as long as it needs to, usually between 2-3 hours. The student does not leave until they are sure of the task at hand.

4) All lessons are one to one, you are the only person in the workshop with me.

5) The cost of each lesson is $100.

6) All materials can be supplied by me at the price I pay for them, I do not make a profit on the materials. You can source the materials yourself if you prefer.
