Teachers Profile: Steve Krenz
I’m a guitar player. I have been one since I was 6 years old. I came from a non-musical family and grew up in San Antonio, Texas. My mom wanted a guitar player so I was the one who got the guitar lessons lessons. Week after week, year after year, I went to guitar lessons during my elementary and middle school years never the least bit interested in it. I had a great teacher, Johnny Frisco, and my Dad made sure I practiced every night after supper. It wasn’t until high school that ever even occured to me that I could play guitar any better than anyone else.
By age 16 I was routinely playing in Jazz jam sessions around town and, much to my amazement, I was selected as the only guitarist in the All-State Jazz Band. I got my music degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio with Classical guitar as my principle instrument. Upon graduation, my wife and I got married. We’ve been married over 20 years now and have been through good times, tough times, and very lean times. I’ve got a beautiful wife and three growing sons. We live in Nashville, Tennessee (Music City, USA) and love it here!
I’ve had the wonderful privilege of playing guitar and working with many talented people great and small. I’ve played guitar on almost every continent and the guitar course has gone to about 95 countries. I feel tremendously blessed and called to the work that I do with Learn & Master Guitar and I am abundantly thankful and grateful for each day that I have to be a part of it.
Learn and Master Guitar Guitar Lesson Review:
For absolute beginner guitar students, Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar online guitar courses are the closest thing I’ve found to taking the kind of personal and private lessons I had the privilege of taking in the ’60′s as a kid. What makes them so effective is that the teacher, Steve Krenz, is not only a professional guitar player, but also a great teacher. Very few guitar instructors have his winning style.
This was the first course I bought. This guitar product is designed specifically for home-schoolers. An award winning program designed by professional teachers. It’s an outstanding learn at home guitar lesson curriculum. I am not alone in this thought, read what this lady has to say about Learn and Master Guitar Home School Edition.
“The DVD’s are so detailed and I love the way the camera angles capture what the instructor is talking about. It feels like we are in the room with him. I got your product with my children in mind, but I have benefited as well. I have always wanted to play an instrument and with your product, I can learn along with my children… At first I was skeptical about replacing the hands-on teacher. After viewing and interacting with your product, I KNOW that it is possible to get good quality instruction without the high cost of private lessons.” Rhonda P. – Home School Mom
Steve teaches easily and is down to earth, with the type of personality that makes class intensely fun and interesting. His easy going style of teaching made me feel like I could really succeed. His teaching was logical and thorough and moves at a pace that you regulate on your own. Each lesson is exactly the right length of time providing the exact amount of education per lesson, so not to over load you.
I want to tell students something about beginner online guitar lessons – nothing beats a live instructor who is well trained in the art of teaching. These are lessons that get the blood pumping and capture your attention in full. These particular DVD guitar lessons are the closest thing to actually having a highly trained guitar teacher in your presence. You can’t buy passion or emotion, but a great teacher knows how to extract it from you.
Plus it is very affordable and you can choose a payment plan if that is more convenient. At $149.95 your package includes:
2. A 108 page companion guitar book that follows the contents of each DVD perfectly and lends a better degree of understanding.
3. Five Jam Along audio CDs that contain a full band playing all of the songs offered in the lessons.
If you are just picking up the guitar for the first time and, or have had no real instruction to this point, his presentation of guitar basics is critical to your success. For those who have some knowledge of the instrument and perhaps a little professional training, these fundamental concepts may be too elementary, perhaps video guitar lessons are more to your suiting.
While Learn & Master Guitar is without question the best online guitar DVD course for beginners and intermediate guitarists, I would not recommend this for anyone who has had significant formal guitar training, because it will most likely move too slowly. Online video guitar lessons will serve you better then. Read the video guitar lesson reviews on our full length review page.
And don’t forget, an educated consumer makes the best decisions, so take time to read each review thoroughly and even go to the site and test drive a few lessons.
