Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, and Uke Instruction

Randy Buckner

Hello, my name is Randy Buckner.

I teach guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and banjo. My studio is located at 440 S. Jefferson in downtown Springfield, Mo. If you live outside of the Springfield metro area, I offer lessons online via Skype. My students range in age from 5 to 80.

On the Guitar

Learn any style (finger-picking or pick) of guitar. Learn how to play country, jazz, blues, or rock. You can start at your level i.e. beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Learn how to read music, play chords, songs, or whatever works for you. Develop your musical creativity.

On the Banjo, Ukulele, and the Mandolin you will learn: songs, chords, backup patterns, and musical creativity.

About the Lessons

Person-to-person instruction that is relaxed and stress-free. The instruction is tailored to fit the needs of the individual student. One-on-one lessons allow the student to progress at their speed. We'll focus on developing your musical skills and creativity.

Fees are $65 per month, which pays for one month of weekly 30-minute lessons. I accept cash, check, or credit/debit card. I won't keep your number on file, or automatically charge your account.
