I have only had three lessons so far, but Parker has been very easy to work with. I am sure that I present a challenge as far as structuring a lesson program. I am an older student (late 60's), I had some formal music training learning to play the accordion when I was young, but I am entirely self taught on guitar. I played guitar for several years when I was in my late teens, & picked it up again about 8 or nine months ago.
Consequently, I am all over the map in terms of my capabilities. Advanced beginner or intermediate in some technical areas, but with major gaps in my understanding of both theory and technique, Parker has done a nice job initially of not spending too much time on things I already know, but still covering enough of the basics with me to identify gaps in my abilities that need to be strengthened. I have enjoyed my sessions, and the pace has been about right so far.

Extremely knowledgeable, and best of all: he knows good tricks to teach you the content. He's done this for years and will serve you well. He can occasionally get sidetracked/off-topic, but it serves to provide insight into other aspects of the lesson and doesn't detract from the content. Overall, I'm very happy continuing lessons with him! :)

Scott M. Denver, CO

Hello,
My name is Scott and I am a musician. I specialize in many styles of guitar playing such as: acoustic, blue grass, reggae, blues, finger style, jam, rock, and instrumental.
My goal is to help students better understand their instrument and how to play it.
I teach techniques and music theory to help them better understand the language of music.
Your instrument can be your voice. My job is to teach students to build their musical vocabulary and skills so they can better express themselves musically.

About Scott

We learn by teaching. That is why I love to teach, because I love to learn. I have made many great connections while teaching music to people and one of the ways to do that is to work together on a common goal. I started teaching music because during my own studies I have discovered many quick learning strategies that make playing music fun. I teach from my home studio as well as via Skype. Many of my strategies I've discovered on my own. Now I want to share these ideas with you. Scott is a multi-instrumentalist loop master whose music spans a wide range of sounds and genres. With an education in music performance and a reputation for having a good time this laid back musician is no amateur to the music scene. Scott has performed hundreds of shows and numerous festival ...

Scott is an excellent guitar teacher. He makes it fun to learn while gearing the lessons toward the student’s needs. In return, this allows the student to excel in learning the guitar at their own pace. I definitely would recommend Scott as guitar instructor.

wish I had more time for MORE lessons

Scott has been a great teacher, his patience and ability to teach at my pace have been wonderful! I also love that he finds ways to teach music I like.

My only regret is that I don't have more time and money to schedule lessons every week! I hope that changes soon.

I love my Uke, and I love lessons with Scott!

Dorothy P. Denver, CO

I am primarily a rhythm guitarist, but I can teach you how to read standard notation and introduce you to tablature. As a high school music teacher, I have had great success with class guitar, and I know I can help you learn the fundamentals of great guitar playing.

About Dorothy

*** Travel Equipment *** I will provide a music stand, books when needed (i.e. supplementary or new material), and manuscript paper for writing out lessons. I expect students to provide chairs that support good posture, music books we have already worked on, a pencil, and their instrument (along with all necessary maintenance supplies; ie reeds, cleaning cloths, etc) *** Specialties *** I am a California and Colorado certified music teacher (B.M. in Music, M.A. in Teaching), currently teaching at East High School in Denver, Colorado. My specialties are woodwind instruments, guitar, and piano. Along with all of these, I will include theoretical elements that will make the music more meaningful. I am passionate about song-writing and theory, so I can also tutor you in these fields.

TJ is a great teacher. I have learned allot in a short amount of time.
He caters the lesson to what I wish to learn while still making sure I learn to actually play not just learn the song. I have enjoyed learning from him and am still a student.
He does like coldplay but I will try not to hold that against him lol.

Great teaching approach

My goal was to be able to play songs around a campfire and TJ has been fantastic at tailoring our lessons to this goal. Every week I learn something a little new, but I also learn a song that is simple enough for me to play and which incorporates whatever new chord or technique he's introduced. I much prefer practicing actual songs vs. excercises and he always leaves me with a new song to play. He is also instantly likeable and lessons feel more like hanging out with a friend than a teacher. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

Fun and inspiring teacher!

If you are looking for a fun, optimistic, and talented teacher TJ is your guy. Every time we get together to make music TJ is full of life and always has a smile on his face. His knowledge about music theory and history is amazing and he can back up that knowledge when he picks up any instrument whether it be guitar, piano, bass, or even mandolin. The great thing about TJ is he inspires you to want to get better at whatever it is you want to get better at. He is patient and understands everyone learns in different ways and at different paces. He can get along with anyone of any age. I highly recommend TJ as your teacher no matter what level you are at.

Great experience so far!

I've certainly enjoyed my beginning guitar lessons with Travis. He takes the time to answer my questions and explain things to I understand the music and the best techniques to use. He is also very encouraging and supportive of my just enjoying the guitar, even with mistakes. So far, I am having a great time!
