NEW news about Sony Pictures TV, my music and the “Young and Restless” show. They asked if I would start writing guitar drama music for their show. One that I wrote last week called, "No Way Out," is being played this Monday, Sept. 26th, along with two other songs from previous CDs. Another four songs on the 28th. They are planning to play my songs regularly. Yay!!
It’s fun to write guitar drama music!

Boulder's Daily Camera wrote: "With her mix of intricate, happy-sounding acoustic guitars and other instruments like fiddle and piano, Lynn Patrick composes the unofficial soundtrack to life in Boulder…instrumental songs that range in mood from upbeat and energetic to reflective and meditative."
“There’s burnished gold in her guitar playing.” —Denver Post
Denver's Westword Magazine said, ”Patrick plays acoustic music of the brightest sort" and the Boulder Weekly described, On the Wind CD as "an amazing collection of instrumentals for any guitar lover, from quick-pick fretwork to soothing serenades. This is local music at its finest.”
"Despite the diversity of styles, a common thread runs through all of Lynn’s songs: every one of them has an uncanny knack for uplifting the environment. A features writer of a local journal wrote: "Swimming with dolphins must feel something akin to experiencing the emotional dimension of Lynn Patrick´s music." Yet another reviewer called her music " …joyous whimsy, as uplifting and happy as star gazing." That´s because Lynn´s music unpretentiously but unmistakably conveys a sense of soaring freedom -- that sensation in the region of your heart that reminds you of being a child and swinging really, really high, until the chains slackened and you knew you could fly."

I teach all levels.
I love bringing music out in other people. Along with performing music professionally, I've been teaching guitar lessons for over 20 years. I'm caring, patient and supportive. I enjoy working with children, beginners and professionals.
I have a teaching style that's very easy to learn. You'll learn finger-picking, flat-picking, different strumming patterns and dynamics. I also teach open tunings, songwriting and how to perform in front of an audience.
I teach private lessons weekly or every other week, Monday-Friday.
