Private One-on-One Guitar Instruction with Tom Hess
I only accept highly motivated guitarists into my Private One-on-One Guitar Training Program. These intense private guitar lessons are held in my studio located in the northwest Chicago suburban area.
- An original essay of at least 1,000 words. The essay must explain your top 3 musical goals and your specific musical challenges in full detail.
- An audition. You must submit 2 samples of your playing in audio (.mp3) or video (.mpeg or .mp4) format. The first sample should display one of your strengths on the guitar. The second sample should display one weakness you have on the guitar. Both samples should be no less than 1 minute long, but no more than 2 minutes long.

- Apply for the program anyway, if accepted I'll put you on my waiting list. I will contact you when an opening becomes available in my schedule.
- Consider Breakthrough Guitar Lessons instead.
