About Seth

Hello! My name is Seth.
I'm currently enrolled in the College of Business at the University of Utah. I began playing guitar when I was 15 after my dad suggested I pick up his old Takamine. I immediately started teaching myself the chords in the back of a instruction book. I am completely self taught however, throughout my 10 years of playing I've picked up new techniques, skills and song repertoire from the many musicians I've met. I spent 4 years working at Bert Murdock Music in Orem, UT where I learned guitar maintenance and repair from a master luthier.
I've played in bands both in Utah and Texas where my parents live. I am a songwriter. There is no better instrument to accompany the voice than the guitar! I learned to sing as a boy when I ...

Seth is an amazing guitar teacher! My sons, Malcolm and Ian–ages 10 and 15, both take guitar lessons from Seth. He is fun and imaginative each lesson. The progress my kids are making makes me smile. If you want to learn guitar, you better call Seth!

I began playing the guitar when I was 8 years old. I took private lessons for 7 years and decided to try and further my skills privately. I practiced along with many albums to perfect certain skills.
When I attended the University of Utah, I had no idea how little I knew about Music Theory.
I try to teach the fundamentals of music and allow a student to express themselves with this new found language.

About Richard

I began playing music at the age of six. I started with the piano and saxophone but found my true passion, by age eight, in the guitar. I took private lessons from a great teacher for the first seven consecutive years of my study and further developed my knowledge and skills through self-directed study. I received my Undergraduate degree in Music Theory from the University of Utah. The pursuit of this degree allowed me to study many different musical aspects, including: composition, music history, ear training, sight reading and music technology, along with classical and jazz guitar studies. Over the years, through my education and practice, I have learned a great deal, not just about the guitar, but also ways to teach music and engage students in their pursuit of musical knowledge.

Rich is an excellent guitar & music teacher

Starting to study music and learn the guitar in my late 40's was pretty tough. After trying a community education class, and a different private instructor, I found Rich here on Take Lessons. After the first lesson I knew that I was going to learn a lot from him, and that I would enjoy the journey.

Rich is very knowledgeable about music, and he takes the time to teach it in a connected and practical way. As he says in his bio, he is laid back, but that does not mean that he is not serious about music and about teaching. For me his teaching approach is perfect, as he blends a deep understanding of all aspects of music with learning, and enjoying, the guitar.

My previous experience was focused mostly on learning chords, songs, and how to read tablature. On my own I discovered the Hal Leonard Method beginner book series, and started to teach myself to read music from it.

As I started my lessons with Rich he immediately did 3 things that impressed me. First he assessed what I knew, and what my goals were. He reviewed my progress in the Hal Leonard book and encouraged me to keep using it, making some key observations and suggestions during the first lesson that immediately helped me. And the most impressive thing was that he started teaching music theory from the very first lesson, showing me scales, introducing the Circle of Fifths, and demonstrating the application of understanding the principles, patterns, and theory. This made me very hungry to learn.

I don't want to just learn how to play songs on the guitar, rather I want to learn to make music with this instrument. That is what Rich is teaching. And his approach is very comfortable and fun. He adapted himself to my learning style and my needs from the beginning, and I can see myself continuing to learn from him for many years.

About Chris

I am first and foremost a cello teacher, but I have a very diverse background. I have played in five jazz ensembles, eight orchestras, and a few bands here and there. I've attended three universities and have learned from many different teachers and teaching styles. In addition to the cello, I play the piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums and double bass proficiently. I've been teaching on and off for the last eight years, and have come to love teaching lessons 1-on-1. I first attended USF studying cello performance, then BYU-Idaho studying cello performance. I am currently at BYU in Provo studying commercial music.

Using songs you already know and I love, I teach you how music works, and how it applies to the guitar. You will learn common chord progressions, strumming and finger picking patterns, as well as how to read standard notation and tablature music. Most importantly, you will discover the fun and joy of learning the guitar!

About Megan

My name is Megan, and I love teaching guitar lessons! I originally got my bachelor's degree from the University of Utah in Elementary Education. I taught 6th grade for a couple of years, and then went on to teach guitar classes at a private school for another couple of years. At this school, I directed the classical guitar ensemble, and had children from 5-14 playing challenging music together. I started slowly taking on private students in my spare time, and my business has grown, so that now it's all I do!
I was a music major before I switched over to Elementary Ed. I have experience in playing in groups, solo, composition, as well as the fundamentals of different styles of playing. I specialize in teaching children, but of course love to teach adults as well. I can teach ...
