Student Skip Hoard leading worship twice a month!

Skip Hoard, 8chords student and photographer leads worship twice a month

Hi Eric,

I’ve been trying to learn guitar for many years and never had the discipline to work through all the theory. I’ve taken lessons several times but after months and months I never seemed to get anywhere and quit, I’ve quit more times than I care to admit. Believe it or not I got my first guitar while in the Navy in 1963 and have struggled ever since, laying off for years at a time. Now, at 67, I’m leading worship twice a month with the children’s ministry at my church and loving it!! Your program was just what I’ve been looking for!!

God Bless You,

Skip Hoard

Michigan Homeschool Group Plays Worship Concert with Eric’s Program

Their class met for 40 minutes each week in Michigan.  Let by Carol Waldo, a homeschool mom.  Carol had minimal experience when she took on this challenge of teaching the kids.  She used my videos during class and the students used the worship guitar songbooks and method from my 8chords100songs program.  Now, each class is playing and strumming and singing along with great worship songs.  This video blessed me and I know it will bless you too!

If you have a homeschool group and would like to add music and guitar classes, please contact me to let me know.  I can help you along the way and offer discounts for bulk orders of my books and materials.

On this video, the students are playing along with my play-along CD and it keeps them on track.  It is easy to do once you learn the chords and patterns in my program.

Thanks for watching!
Eric Roberts
