Bill Pierce Guitar Lessons | Bangor Maine Skype and Facetime Lessons
WHATS NEW WITH BILL?
Spring is here! April 2021 update. New happenings. I am tweaking my live online music performance setup. I upgraded to M1 mac so now I have the means to stream insanely great vid and digital sound for live performances. I am working on exciting cover songs by Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, and Satch as well as the ones I am known for. (Eric Johnson, Charlie Daniels, Dire Straits, etc) The students are my lifeline during this canceled music pandemic we all live in. I am grateful to all of you! The students have done some amazing things such as Nick from Plymouth has memorized Fuzz Universe by Paul Gilbert. Thomas or "T" from Hampden Maine has absorbed Eric Johnsons Cliffs of Dover at age 16! Bassist Rylee of Carmel Maine has excelled at the 1st Berklee Bass book and continues to remotely play with her School show choir band. The adults are doing really well too. Like Joe from Eddington catching the groove on Walk This Way. Brett from Dedham has released his first solo cd. Teaching is how I travel the journey of music with all of the students. BANDS? I have some cover gigs booked finally! See the live music page for dates and venues.
What do my Facetime/Zoom/Skype lessons provide? Every style, every level! Beginners are always welcome. My approach to your learning is based on getting the beginners playing songs and avoiding the eons of online materials that confuse you! 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!

About My Lesson Program
I offer private one on one lessons in my studio located at 349 Harlow st. in Bangor Maine, inside Northern Kingdom Music. My students learn every style and sub style of music: Rock, Blues, Metal, Shred, Jazz, Country, Classical, Funk and Jazz Rock/Fusion. On our music journey, we learn Songs, Sight Reading, Tablature, Improvisation, theory, ear training and transcription. There are some very successful folks that have studied with me. Corey Beaulieu from the band Trivium on Roadrunner/Warner, Johnny Hiland who was signed to Steve Via's record label. There are lots of my students playing in middle and high school Jazz Bands. Classical guitar students grace our society with Beethovan and Bach. I also love to teach the folks that just want to play songs from the bands they love. Having started my path of sharing music with others in 1985, I have learned so much it is mind-boggling. This is our journey, together we rejoice in our learning!
What the students say about our lessons
Both my brother and I have taken lessons from Bill while in school. He does a great job at creating a fun environment that is conducive to learning. I love having the ability to choose what songs I would like to learn to play. Bill really gives students the ability to craft their lessons around what they would like to learn rather than sticking to a general curriculum for all students.
