Bill Pierce Guitar Lessons | Bangor Maine Skype and Facetime Lessons


Winter 2021-2022 update. Lessons are very busy and I am happy to be working with so many different kinds of students. Folks that know me are well aware that I am very committed to my community in New England. And yes, If you are from my area you are my priority. I love New England and if you need my help, I will do whatever I can to help you! 

Whats up with my music? I am working with a mixing engineer, Gerard Vachon and Maines guru of analog mastering, Arlo West. The process for releasing is slow because we are all busy bust busy, so please have patience, the album will be out Winter 2022. I am going to release a limited amount of cds. The art is awesome so they will sell quickly. I am blown away by how many guitar music fans still love cds! For all you internet app lovers. Spotify, amazon and Youtube will have the 166k mp3 version...But, remember you are being robbed of a good music experience! A cd has wav files which are 35-90 mb in size, mp3 is 2-7mb!

Live music? This winter my cover bands have a few gigs which will be listed on my live music page. Being inside with a Friedman BE 100 is definetly a challange! Shyboy and The Altar Boys look forward to seeing you at shows in venues such as: Thr Penobscot Pour House, The Bears Den, The Hightide and other venues TBA.

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.
