Online Guitar Lessons:
Here’s how Ryan’s online guitar lessons function.  Lessons are $60.00 an hour.
We can converse through email, instant messaging, or Skype to arrange for our online guitar lesson. In this consultation we can discuss your goals and what you hope to achieve with your lessons.  Once we have made contact and discussed lessons and lesson times you will then deposit the money into my Paypal account. No lesson will be given until payment has been received. At the end of each lesson, I will provide you with a Power Tab of what we’ve covered if you find it necessary.

Once we have agreed upon a time slot, make sure to arrive and be prepared 5-10 minutes online! Please don’t miss your scheduled lesson time because no make ups or refunds will be given without at least 24 hour notice of cancellation (remember I am blocking out an hour of my day for you!).

Here’s what you need for the lessons:
High speed internet connection
Webcam (with microphone, although usually they are built in)
Skype
Paypal
Powertab

Video Lessons
Ryan Formato has also and will continue to implement FREE online videos to teach you the guitar.  All Ryan asks is that you contact him with ideas for what YOU want to learn.  Just visit Ryan Formato’s YOUTUBE channel to check out all of Ryan’s video lesson material.
