Acoustic Guitar Community

Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.

I don't know if each teacher would like to have her/his own discussion, or if we want to do it all in one thread - Please do what you feel and others will follow.

Susan Palmer:
• Guitar Instructor at Seattle University
• Author of "The Guitar Lesson Companion"

My Goals:
♫ Teach the skills that will give you more musical choices
♫ Apply the fundamentals to the music that you want to play
♫ Encourage you to form good practice habits that result in a higher level of musicianship

I use a structured system which is tailored to fit each person's musical tastes and ambitions. My system includes the study of these and other areas: reading music notation, rhythmic chord playing, melodic soloing, music theory and songwriting.

Please check out my free lesson library, read my blog and some reviews to get a general feel for my style. If you are interested in learning more about my teaching availability, please email me at:

I've been teaching guitar for 30 years, specializing in folk, fingerstyle, classic rock, and contemporary country. I offer special courses on 12-string guitar, open tunings, music theory, and helping lifelong self-taught players to begin advancing again. My music has been featured on public radio around the country and on several international New Age samplers. I've played in festivals around the United States, opening for Lorraine Duisit, Roy Bookbinder, and Alisa Fineman. I've donated use of my original music for a number of worthy causes. My song "Hearts of the Fathers" was used in a documentary about homeless children and "Inside Passage" was used for a recruiting video for a university nursing program.

I teach private lessons at the Eastern Shore's Own Arts Center and have recently begun to offer online guitar lessons. Please visit my website for details.
