Guitar teacher, David Eidt, first came on the scene when he opened his music studio/retail store in Wynne, AR. Founded in 2014, Sky Eagle Music (named after the founder’s Native American grandfather) soon became a hotspot for local music lovers and quickly drew students and customers from around the state due to the Sky Eagle Method’s down-to-earth approach for helping students of all abilities learn to play their favorite songs on guitar, piano, and drums.
This innovative Method is based on Eidt’s years of experience as a musician, teacher, & professional counselor. The Sky Eagle Method combines common-sense tips, time-honored techniques, & a few Jedi mind tricks to make complex musical concepts easily understood by even the most musically-challenged. To date, this method has helped students from age 5 to 75 learn to play their favorite songs faster and more easily than they ever imagined. These breakthrough techniques have proven to be especially effective for those that had tried other methods and failed.
Super-bowl winning coach, Vince Lombari offers this advice for mastering new skills: “Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.” Eidt heartily agrees and applies this approach to learning to make music, “Most methods of music instruction create needless frustration because they do not teach you how to practice effectively. This results in the student picking up bad habits that have to be unlearned later. The secret to the Sky Eagle Method is that it shows you step-by-step exactly what to practice to get results.”
Learning to play music is more than just fun. According to Laura Lewis Brown of PBS.org, learning to make music has far-ranging benefits. Brown shares “Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas.” She shares compelling research evidence for the benefits of music in language development, improved brain function, and even in helping with basic memory recall.
Eidt agrees “The best part of teaching music is watching the students grow as a musician, but also as a person. The first step happens when they realize that they really can play their favorite songs, regardless of what they believed about their talent or lack thereof. Then, they start take the same skills of study, practice, and accepting feedback and apply it in other areas of their life. That’s what makes this the best job in the world: being present at the moment of transformation when the butterfly emerges from the cocoon to finally fly.”
