And More Video Students
We are a homeschooling family and have been enjoying learning beginning guitar with your Worship Guitar Class (for me the regular version and my daughters (age 7 and 10) – the Kids version). We play for worship time together.
My ten year old daughter has even recently been bringing her guitar to the kindergarten Sunday School Class and playing what she is learning for the little ones. Thank you for this wonderful program! It has been a blessing to us.
“I have attached a picture of Chase when he sang his song in Children’s Church “KIdstuf” program. The song he sang was “This Little Light of Mine” that he learned from your “Worship Guitar Class for Kids“. I asked him if he had fear getting up there and he said “No, It comes natural for me.” Your program is done in such a way that it did not intimidate him and it was easy to follow along.
Thank you for allowing the Lord to work through you to Glorify Him.“
“I received your tapes and watched them (All 3 tapes). I think the tapes are great. You make it seem so simple. I’ve been playing on/off for over 20 years now. If I would’ve started out with your videos years ago, I think I’d be a whole lot better than I am now. It took years for me to learn what you make seem so easy.
I also own over 20 Instruction videos and DVD’s. I think your videos are probably the best. Anyone at any level can start with these. And I think they’ll be surprised of how easy and how much better they’ll get in a short time.
The tapes progress easily through strumming rhythms, alternating bass, fingerpicking and muting, and bar chords. Each new thing you learn is rewarded with new song to learn.
You did a wonderful job. I think the tapes are a blessing to anyone who has them. And the songs are really good songs. You have a nice voice and you sing with a lot of heartfelt sincerity. I’m looking forward to learning every song on them, and using them as a tool to teach my kids how to play.
God bless and I hope the word gets out on your tapes to churches all around.”
“I am a pastor’s wife, church pianist and teach Jr/Sr. High music at a growing christian school. With just one semester of guitar in college, I wasn’t a very good guitarist, but thanks to your videos, I am able to teach guitar to our teens and prepare them for future ministry!
I use your videos for the second semester. I simply show the video, stopping to let them practice the skills and explaining anything they didn’t understand or didn’t catch. I sometimes add in another song that follows the same chord patterns or strum patterns for added practice.
I’d like to mention three former students. One young lady, after learning to play in my class, began to play the bass and then joined a Christian praise band. They are cutting albums and touring!
A young seventh-grader who took my class last year, was my accompanist today as I lead our high school in worship during chapel service. He did a GREAT job!
The third was a student who struggled and didn’t practice very much in my guitar class two years ago. A few weeks ago I saw him. He told me that God has called him into the youth ministry. “I think God was calling me all along, but I wouldn’t listen. Guess what! I started playing my guitar again! I got it out the other day and I’m going to really get good so I can play when I’m a minister.” WOW!
I was blown away! The person I thought least likely for God to use with a guitar in his hand is the very person God chose! I am reminded of the verse that says,”My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts are higher than your thoughts.” Oh how TRUE!
Thank you, Jean, for providing a way for me to reach these teenagers.
May God continue to bless your ministry.”
“Last Christmas I purchased all three videos so that my 12 year old son and I could learn to play the guitar together. It was an added delight to hear you share the Lord in your ministry and to hear you speak of Dr. Jeremiah who was our pastor and friend when we lived in San Diego.
Last summer my son, Colin, played “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands” for a Sunday morning service at his Grandpa and Grandma’s country church in Kansas. It was an answer to prayer that each of my children would participate in worshipping the Lord through the making of music. Thank you for your guitar lessons via video and for your ministry. You certainly have blessed our family.”Ramona McNeely, IN
“I really have been enjoying your video’s! They have helped me so much… I don’t know anyone that plays guitar, so they have been my only source to learn. I also have 9 children so going anywhere for lessons is also out of the question. I really wished I had your videos a lot earlier. God Bless You! Your doing a good thing… I love your heart of worship the most!”
“Just had to let you know what our music teacher had to say about your products. First, I’ll give you some background information. My 10 year old son (Kevin) was taking violin lessons for about a year when he decided to switch to acoustic guitar. My 13 year old son (C.J.) has been playing saxophone for close to 4 years now. The saxophone teacher also played guitar, so I asked him if he would take Kevin on as a student. C.J. then decided that he wanted to play both the saxophone and the guitar.
I found your website a while back and purchased all 3 of your videos. I also bought Steve Turley’s beginner book. Our music teacher said he has never seen anything put together so nicely. He was commenting on both the videos and the book. Our teacher is a Christian, too, and the content really impressed him. He said it was the first book that he could work with his students from cover to cover with.
He said that the videos are superb, and he has my sons practice with you every day. He said he was a little concerned that products like this could put him out of a job! My sons sound as though they have been playing for a long time. Keep up the good work and thank you for your commitment to quality.”
“I am having a wonderful time with your first DVD in English and Spanish. I am a Missionary to Mexico, Venezuela, and many Spanish speaking countries.
I have taught myself just basic chords. I am blessed and enjoying the playing patterns that you are teaching. You have an awesome teaching technique.
I am teaching Bible English classes to Spanish people.They are learning Bible English, the Word of God is coming forth to Secular Spanish folks, many are getting saved and their lives are being changed into His image. I believe your DVD will change many lives too.”
