Bill Pierce Guitar Lessons | Bangor Maine Skype Lessons
WHAT DO MY IN PERSON AND ONLINE VIA ZOOM/FACETIME/SKYPE LESSONS PROVIDE YOU AS A STUDENT? Every style, every level! Beginners are always welcome. My approach to your learning is based on getting the beginners playing songs and assist you with the eons of online materials that can be overwhelming! Intermediate players: we take care of the business by working on technique, improvisation, scale mastery, chord construction/understanding, theory, and ear training. Advanced players, we work on whatever you need help on. RSI issues, chops, versatility, shred subjects such as, sweeping, efficiency picking, alt picking. Metal, Rock, Blues, Jazz, Classical, Country, Singer-Songwriter, and Composition. SIGHT READING!!!! Email or Text today for more info. Covid19 can not stop our music journey!
My new album is finally out on Bandcamp! Nomad of the North is 9 songs of my rock/metal side. There is a link below to www.billpierce.bandcamp.com
The release was on Winter Solstice 2023, during the aftermath of 400000 Mainers being without power. Due to a superstorm that had hurricane-force winds and massive flooding. Luckily we have a generator and Elon's Starlink that I use on the road for internet. I held a Facebook event live as a listening party. It was much more fun than playing live on the internet as I got to comment and message listeners while listening to the album. The cds and vinyl records will be released in March and I am looking for a venue in Bangor to do a release party. I will play live with my backing track set up.. Come back here to get the details TBA.
The student count is very high right now. I am so proud of the young shredders and Jazz students. One student Thomas from Hampden has made incredible strides at UMA this last semester. He sounds like a guy that's been playing standard jazz for 25 years, yet he is only 18! All of the students bring me the joys of learning music that is quite challenging, Polyphia, Paul Gilbert, Malmsteen, EJ, SRV, Metheny, Bad Omens, Asking Alexandria, Coltrane,VAI, EVH are the songs students are currently learning in my lessons. When I learns to perform some of these songs it pushes me to become a much better player, teacher and writer! The online program is still alive as well so I can help folks wherever they are! I have availability on some mornings. Email me for mor info!
