Meet 12 (soon to be 13) year-old Jack Henningsen, who has been taking guitar lessons for just under 1 year, and also plays the violin in school!  Jack’s favorite song is “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, and his overall favorite band is The Beatles.  Jack really likes his guitar lessons mainly because he gets to choose the songs he wants to learn, and gets all of the support he needs in learning with his instructor.  He likes practicing just after school when there is some quiet time in the house. 

When Jack looks at his future in music, he is happy with his current instruments he has chosen and wants to continue to grow with them.  For now, his goal is to get to a level in his abilities where he would be able to make music with his friends.  If Jack could play his guitar anywhere outside of the US, he would choose England.  However he likes the variety of music available here in the states including rock, country, and jazz, and likes playing music here with people he knows!

According to his guitar instructor Andy, Jack is a very fast learner, and has been burning through his song list and exercises with impressive speed.  His song choices have been ambitious and they are currently making great headway in learning “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin.  Jack also recently played “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas at our recent student performance evening in front of our music community.  Keep up the great work Jack!

In November of 2015 I had decided to really start learning how to play the Guitar after years of just knowing a few Chords and Rhythm and playing the same old stuff over and over, and through a business relationship I found out about Music Flow Teaching and little did I know at that time what a huge impact this was going to have on my life. My goal in the beginning was to learn how to Solo and not just copy or mimic what other Guitar players had done but be able to create my own solos, I was shocked at how quickly my Instructor was able to get the basic scales needed to start this process going, and how fast I was able to absorb these techniques and forms to get started on my journey to my Goal. Now that I have been doing this for over a year and a half it seems like every lesson just provides a quicker learning experience as I get more and more of the capabilities in my hand. I really like how my Instructor is able to adapt quickly and change from lesson to lesson to work on a technique or form instead of just sticking to some plan that someone else has developed. What I have learned since starting with Music Flow has affected my life in more ways than just music alone, it has reignited a passion that had been gone for a long time as I look so forward to getting home and playing everyday, it has also helped every other part of my life as well. I now seem to focus on task better and and pay more attention to detail than before I started on this journey. From the deepest part of my Heart I would like to just say Thank You Music Flow Teaching and I cant wait to see what the next year holds because if it is anything like the last year my advancement will be exponential.
