Personal Statement

Regan Says... "EVERYONE CAN PLAY GUITAR! BUT NOT everyone can play piano. You can sit down and tinker but not actually play right away. NOT everyone can play the trumpet! You can maybe blow a note, but that's it. But EVERYONE CAN PLAY GUITAR right away! Right now, in this moment, if you have a guitar you can play songs you love! Just put your FIRST finger on the FIRST fret on the FIRST string, give it a STRUM and SING! Regan offers a CONSTRUCTIVE and POSITIVE approach to the world of music, as opposed to destructive and negative approach to music that is so prevalent today. Regan's music lessons convey an attitude that is wholesome and athletic, rather than the often angry, depressed and lethargic attitudes in rock that so many young people are exposed to. The lessons will encourage steady growth in musical knowledge and ability, organization, goal setting and achievement. Instead of strife, we are striving for musical excellence at Regan's Rock School.
