Ray M. Arlington, TX

Beginner to advanced.
Guitar is the greatest instrument in the world. No other instrument has it's versatility, it's range of techniques, or it's expressive capability.
I am first and foremost a guitar player. I've been playing for over 25 years, and can teach multiple styles and techniques.

About Ray

Born in Arlington, Texas, I began playing guitar and bass guitar in high school. After studying for several years under Joey Faust, I studied Jazz, Classical Guitar, and Music Theory at TCC in Fort Worth. I've been teaching since 2003, my students ranging in age from 3 to over 70. I also play piano, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and auto harp.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe lessons should be fun, so all lessons are tailored to the individual student, based on the student's interests and goals. Students are free to progress at their own pace, and to choose their own learning material. Styles and techniques include Rock, Country, Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Shred, Slide Guitar, Classical Guitar, and Slap Bass, to name a few.

My Banjo Lessons

Ray has already helped this 47 Year old kid to make large leaps in my understanding of music theory and my instrument. I really appreciate Rays knowledge of music and his ability to break it down so that anyone can understand and put into practice the knowledge gained very quickly. My hour lessons go so fast that I wonder where the time went.

Ray has been very flexible to this student and has been very accommodating to all the questions I have. He is patient and will go over anything again until you understand the lesson.

I Highly recommend Ray to any level of student all ages just starting out or someone who wants to gain more knowledge with the instrument you have.

I appreciate what he has taught me so far and am very excited to see where this journey takes me.

Ray is awesome!

I am not your typical mandolin student. I am a 54 year old grama who decided to learn to play the mandolin for something fun to do. I'm so glad i picked Ray as a teacher! I chose him initially based on high reviews from parents of young children, so I figured I would probably not be too much of a challenge for him. I looked forward to my lessons every week. Ray is positive, upbeat, encouraging and very patient. Even though I only go for half an hour each week, I have been able to learn one song every week. I am now working on my third song. I highly recommend Ray to any age group.

I tried taking lessons using RockSmith 2014 then decided to try a few in home lessons to compare and troubleshoot issues I was having. I found the benefits of lessons with an interactive instructor far outweighed trying to teach myself through other methods. Gordie is professional, makes lessons fun, interesting and when problems arise he changes his method of teaching, becoming a better teacher rather than expecting you to become a better student.

Fantastic Online Lessons!!!

Online lessons are so easy and productive. Long day at work? bad traffic? snowstorm?...none of that effects your online lessons. Moreover, Gordie has an endless library of songs to teach and you just can't stump him! He's patient and practical and does a tremendous job!

Great for helping on songs and licks.

Gordie is a great teacher in helping you learn new songs, and understanding technical aspects of guitar playing. Gordie has been very helpful in my advancement. I have been very pleased with each lesson i have taken, and walk away with something valuable each time.
Andreas M. Plano, TX

My students can expect to develop much faster than anyone around them. They will acquire skills that will allow them to learn any song or composition that they wish to learn. My students can, if they wish, become as skillful on the instrument as anyone on the planet!

I am not a big believer in "talent". In my opinion anyone can achieve extraordinary skill on the guitar.

Besides all the music theory concepts and technical skills that need to be acquired to become a great guitarist and musician, I provide systems and strategies that show my students not only what to practice, but HOW to practice and for how long; an often overlooked aspect in my experience with guitar lessons, and it can make all the difference!

About Andreas

I am originally from Germany and started playing the guitar at the age of 10. After two years of classical guitar instruction I enrolled at the School of Rock Guitar in Offenbach (near Frankfurt, Germany) for a one-year program. After that I started performing with many well-known regional musicians and bands until graduating from high school in 1995. After high school I moved
to Boston, Massachusetts to study music at the world renown Berklee College of Music from where I graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor's of Music Degree (Magna Cum Laude). I majored in two areas: Guitar Performance / Contemporary Writing & Production.

While in Boston I performed in many ensembles and played in a Classic Rock Cover band for 2 years. I have also participated in many projects during this ...

Astute and Professional Guitarist

Andy is passionate about the guitar and music. He has the music credentials, talent, and patience that any future student will appreciate. He is astute in evaluating talent, listens intently and is suggestive on the best approach to further their desire to learn an art form. His personality traits are respectful, punctual and well meaning. I appreciated his ability to explain music theory when I studied under his guidance. I'd recommend his music services to anyone with a desire to play the guitar.

Billy H. Arlington, TX

Well...I've been playing since the 3rd grade and teaching since my mid twenties. I have had many students go on to do very well.

In Nashville I played acoustic guitar in the studio almost every day for 15 years....and lots of electric too.

lead - rhythm - acous - elec - finger picking - distorted - clean - blues - rock - country - jazz too

About Billy

I teach my students how to understand how music is put together so they can learn even more on their own.

I read, write, and play all styles and I focus on teaching the student fundamentals that work in all styles of music ....AND I get them going on the style they are interested in - pop, rock, country, folk, etc.

I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing.

I am also good at preparing students for college music classes.

Michael E. Dallas, TX

Nothing can beat seeing an experienced person playing the guitar, except being able to ask that person questions and get answers. One on one private lessons are what I offer in a comfortable, relaxed environment. I can show you exactly how to make all the moves for playing correctly. This makes progress exponentially faster. We also get into theory, which is WHY you are playing the notes you play in songs. You want lead guitar? You've got it here. I teach all styles, old and new.

About Michael

My name is Mike E. I am a resident of Lake Highlands. I played by ear for eleven years before starting training on music and how to teach by Mr. Terrill Gardner. Terrill took me through music from the Rolling Stones all the way through "Modern Method for Guitar" books I, II, and III from Berklee College in Boston. He was my mentor and taught me a method that he spent thirty years perfecting. It works, guaranteed. He also taught me on bass guitar and banjo. I can help you.

Lessons are customized to meet the needs of the individual, with the primary focus on playing songs as soon as possible. I am talking about playing along with the pros, not reading notes for months and playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb." I have combined my "by ear" knowledge with ...

Mike is great, he simplifies a complex music reading into plain simple English. Within a few lessons, Mike had me playing all the major chords and using them to play songs. I look forward to being able to play more complex songs with Mike.

Mike amazed me!

On a free introductory meeting with Mike, he taught me every major chord on the piano in ONE SENTENCE! Then he taught me every minor chord in ONE MORE SENTENCE. His personality and demeanor matched his knowledge. Most of all, he made it all fun.

Time to Rock n' Roll in Dallas

By Drew S. - Dallas Guitar Teacher

Dallas, Texas is a constantly evolving musical metropolis. The music scene of Austin often casts its shadow over the great opportunities that Dallas provides to musicians of all abilities. Deep Ellum is home to many clubs where budding guitarists can gain exposure and experience with live performance. While larger venues such as the House of Blues showcase the talents of many different professional musicians, The Afters, The Toadies, and (most notably) ZZ-Top all started playing in the small venues within the Dallas music scene.

Dallas is most well-known for its gospel-funk, rock, country and coffeehouse styles of music. Dallas Baptist University and the University of North Texas, both located in Dallas, have some of the best graduate programs for ...
