Guitar: Beginner - Advanced, all ages

About Shane

I began piano lessons at age 6. At age 9 my mom allowed me to take guitar lessons provided I continued with piano. By 12 it was just me and the six-string.

The first time I learned how to play guitar with one hand was from a hippie guitarist who sewed colored patches into his leather pants. One week’s lesson when I was 13 consisted of going into the teaching room, pressing play on the VCR and watching a video of Stevie Ray Vaughn live. That changed everything for me.

I founded various bands in my hometown and started teaching guitar lessons when I was 17. I taught all styles, ages, and levels. After high school I received training in jazz guitar theory and performance at the Player’s School of Music in Clearwater, Florida and later studied guitar theory under a jazz ...

About Logan

I am a music lover, educator, and songwriter. I have been playing music since I was very young and it has consistently brought joy into my life. I have been teaching since 2007, specifically to share the joy i find in music. I teach because I think everyone is capable of making great music, and I want to help you figure out how.
I grew up in California and have toured extensively throughout the western US. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I earned my degree in Guitar Performance in 3 years. Since then I've been teaching, writing, and playing non stop.

I highly recommend Logan as a piano teacher. As a beginner in my 40s, I was apprehensive about my ability to learn piano. He puts you at ease with an encouraging approach tailored to the student. He has a deep expertise in music and figures out how the student thinks when learning the instrument. This makes the lesson more productive. I encourage you to get on his calendar.

About Christopher

I have been a professional musician for over 13 years and am currently lead guitarist for Starstruck/Sony artist Caroline Kole, having opened for Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Martina MCBride and many other great acts.

I started out as so many others did wanting to be a rock star, jumping around my room, guitar in hand, to my favorite artists. When I got serious about music I began my 8 years of classical training at the Pinellas County Center for The Arts and continued through out college at St. Petersburg College. I have a strong background in many styles including Rock/Pop, Indie, Blues, Country, Jazz, Fingerstyle/Classical and Music Theory.

Having been in the student seat throughout my training, I know that the right teacher makes all the difference. That ...

Epic teacher

I've had a few guitar instructors through out my life and Chris was by far the best one I’ve had. I went to him after taking guitar for a couple years with other instructors and he helped me rediscover my love for it. He’s motivating, smart, and all around a great instructor. I’d recommend him to anyone--from beginners to even more advanced guitarists. He really is the best!

just what i needed

Chris was instrumental in me rediscovering my love of guitar through performance. For the band that was assembled we were allowed to pick the songs which made us more motivated as well as making it fun. Chris was excellent at determining your strengths and challenging you. I had never played lead guitar before. Now I expect to be the lead guitarist for the band.

Chris is a man's man.

I took lessons with Chris for probably a year and a half, maybe two years. He was easily one of the greatest teachers I've ever had. He would let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and then, despite his feelings toward the music, would listen intently to the song, figure out everything about how it's played, and then decide the most appropriate way to go about teaching said song according to what he knew I was and wasn't capable of. He always pushed me to do better and if I couldn't get passed a certain part we would work on it until I nailed it. Not to mention he's a really cool dude so there was never a dull moment. I can't recommend him enough.

Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Slide Guitar, Steel Guitar, Improvisation

About Matthew

An Ohio native, I began playing guitar when I was 6 and came from a musical family. I am an active performer, producer, and composer. My goal as a teacher is to foster a lifelong interest in music and give my students the tools they need to develop their art.

If you want to get the most out of your practice time and build a solid foundation on which you can continually develop, a great teacher can accelerate your development and get you where you want to be. If you are a beginner or even a seasoned player looking to advance your playing, knowing which direction to go and how to continue developing can be a challenge. Methods are many, principals are few. Understanding how music works will allow you to become your own teacher in the long run and that is my goal with all of my ...

So far I've had a few lessons with Matt and not only is he a great instructor, but also a great guy who is eager to engage with his students beyond just learning to play guitar. I came into the lessons with absolutely no knowledge of how to actually play – I was a fan and that was it – but I feel comfortable playing chords and scales after a few lessons. I look forward to my future lessons with Matt and definitely recommend him as a teacher.
Chris S. Nashville, TN

I can teach rock, blues, americana, folk, and classical guitar.

About Chris

I started teaching myself guitar in the mid 1990's and was so taken by the beauty of the guitar that I quickly formed a rock band in high school and covered a lot of classic rock, blues, and americana music. I attended TCU in Fort Worth Texas and played in the jazz ensemble as well earned two degrees (Bachelors in music and Masters in Music) in classical guitar performance. I've also studied in Madrid Spain with the composer and guitarist Jose Luis Merlin and have performed many of his works. I've taught privately for many years. I also tour the country in a duo ("Chris & Lolly") and we perform original singer/songwriter material that is Americana, classic rock, blues, jazz, and soul music. I play and teach both electric and acoustic material. I also have ...

Chris was my first guitar instructor that I feel like I was actually inspired to keep playing. Prior instructors had pushed me to play songs that I never wanted to and I can't say I actually remember any real technique before my lessons with Chris.
I've had lessons from age 7 to my current age of 17 and for 3 or 4 of those years, while Chris was still at TCU in Ft. Worth, he was my teacher. I still have all my notes and sheet music from songs that he introduced me to and songs that I'd wanted to learn at the time. He first introduced me to schools, to new chords, and actually (I don't think he knows he did this) to blues improvisation.
Always kind and extremely enthusiastic and relatable, Chris taught through tab, sheet music and just showing me by sight and ear. Since his moving to Tennessee, I haven't had any lessons other than YouTube and reading tab. I'm fully confident in my ability to now teach myself to further my skills and techniques that Chris first taught me. Chris has a very diverse skill set and can play blues, rock, country and classical extremely well. I would highly recommend Chris as a teacher for beginners because of my experience as a new guitarist learning from him but also for those who are already confident in their abilities and need someone to brush their technique up or inspire them to push their skills further.
I know that if I were still able, I'd be taking lessons from Chris twice a week.
