As of January 2020 I have moved from Orlando and NO LONGER taking students there.
I am leaving this site in place (for now) to help any asipring guitar students determine what they might want in their lesson plan as they prepare for college and look for a guitar instructor.
I’m Rick Richbourg and I am eager to get started with our guitar lessons!
I’ve been teaching private guitar and music theory lessons here in Orlando since 1980. It has been my great pleasure helping students achieve their personal performing goals, become accomplished professionals and even become guitar instructors and music teachers themselves.
I went to Berklee College of Music, earning a Bachelor of Music (Arts) in 1978. I am passionate about many genres of music and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with my students. I have performed locally, nationally and internationally with popular music groups, jazz groups and symphonic orchestras. I look forward to helping you determine and realize your musical ambitions.
Yes, I teach personalized guitar lessons for beginners and electric guitar lessons for professionals. But, whether you have been playing guitar for a life time or just beginning your musical journey, you probably already know:
No matter how well you play, there is always room for improvement and ways to have MORE FUN!
Playing the guitar can provide a life time of enjoyment -whether you play just for fun, in a school jazz or rock ensemble, perform professionally, serve in your Church Praise and Worship band or even have a neighborhood ‘garage band’ for working adults.
Let me assess your current skills and help you develop a plan to reach your musical goals and increase your satisfaction level with your performance. College bound music majors here is the overview for more focused guitar lessons.
