About Me

I've been playing guitar since I wans 9 years old and teaching guitar since I was 14. I grew up playing in bands with friends. My parents would drive us (and a ton of equipment!) to wherever we were playing, which was sometimes 50 to 200 miles from home! I later did studio work and played as a solo entertainer. I also studied acting while in college, so being on stage and performing is very comfortable for me.
I have extensive experience in teaching both individuals and groups with regard to several different venues, including guitar, bass guitar, acting, public speaking, songwriting and studio recording.
I also provide a unique service that my students tell me is very helpful. I record instructions, or demonstrations, and email them to you - on the spot! This way you don't get home and wonder "Now how did that go?" or, " How was I able to do that?" You just open the email and listen to it – whenever you like.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is geared toward each individual student. Everyone has different specific interests and desired outcomes, so my lessons are based on your priorities and your goals. Beginning with your first lesson you should feel inspired and excited! Even if you are just beginning to learn an instrument, you need to have a teacher who can supply you with what you need AND have you playing things that you like within a very short time.
This applies to all types of music; rock, standards, folk, metal, classic rock, popular, country, whatever you want to play. Beginner or advanced. So it's up to you -- just tell me what you want to get out of the lessons, and that is what we do! I may be the instructor, but YOU are the director.

Phillip Z. Chandler, AZ

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

I teach music. The guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele just happen to be the particular instruments I choose. Music as a language, discipline, and art, is the goal. I've been teaching, performing, studying, composing, for some thirty years. I've studied and gigged in the classical, jazz, rock, blues, R & B, and country idioms. I've taught composition and improvisation to instruments other than guitar, (vocalists, fiddle, sax, piano, trumpet) I've taught all ages and levels. I currently pursue a doctorate of music in guitar at university. Students learn many things when studying with me. They learn physically how to play a particular instrument while learning music as its own language. Students learn how to learn, learn self-discipline, and access their musical expression, all potential life changing experiences. I am happy and excited to announce I am available for on-line lessons, and will now be able to work with students from all over the world, regardless of distance or location!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am laid back, but at the same time very goal directed. I like to do technique and/or vocabulary, note reading, and songs every lesson. After six months students are able to to 'jam', (improvise over chord changes such as the blues). They are well on their way to becoming literate, probably a third way through the first book. They probably can play a half dozen songs well, and are starting to strum (comp) chord progressions in a musically rhythmic way. They may even have played in a couple concerts by then.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Office studio w/ guitar, bass, amps, and seating for parents, computer with skype capability.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my guitar and writing tools, extra picks, extra paper etc. Students provide their own instrument, method book, staff paper, notebook paper. Hopefully they have a music stand and their own guitar picks and other items relevant for the study of their instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, theory/composition, improvisation

Andrew A. Tempe, AZ

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

My name is Andrew, and I've been a musician nearly my entire life. I have a Bachelor's degree in classical guitar performance from Arizona State University, but my background goes far beyond classical music. My performance experiences range from playing violin in my high school symphony orchestra to playing lead guitar in a Santana cover band, and just about everything in between! As a teacher, you can expect me to be positive and encouraging. My biggest goal is to inspire you and help you discover a similar passion for music as I've developed over the years.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I do expect students to practice consistently, I always do my best to tailor the lesson plans to their wants as well as their needs so practice is both fun and challenging. For students pursuing classical music, I'll typically start them in a book and reading sheet music, but for just about anything else, the lesson plans will be more customized to the taste of my students and will not require music reading ability in most cases. After the first few months, my students can expect to have a solid understanding of music, their instrument, and what steps to take to reach their long term goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio includes a full drum set, electric piano, as well as several guitars and a bass guitar. I would prefer that the student brings his or her own guitar or bass. I always have spare books and music in case the student forgets to bring their own.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel with my own guitar and bass guitar, but for piano and drum lessons, the student will need their own instrument and a quiet area to get the most from the lessons.

*** Specialties ***
While I have a degree in classical guitar, I have several years of experience with blues and classic rock, specifically on the electric guitar and drums. Aside from those, I enjoy all genres of music and have plenty of musical experience outside of the aforementioned genres.

Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ear Training, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting, Upright Bass

About Me

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own instruments. I have plenty of my own plus sound gear for demonstrations

*** Specialties ***
I'm classically trained on violin starting at age 9 but switched to upright bass at age 11. I played in many youth symphonies for 11 years. In high school I discovered jazz and started playing in combos. While in high school, my band director required us to have a weekly private lesson. I studied with Lawrence Hurst at Univ. of MIch. He is now head of the string dept. at Indiana U. Recognized as the greatest teaching bass player in the US.
I've been playing guitar since age 8 and have a terrific ear....while learning to read music, I also played everything I heard on the radio, TV, etc....I believe in that method....I play in a number of groups...gypsy Django Reinhardt trio, classical pop trio, Broadway shows, rock/pop groups. I own and operate a music business that provides live entertainment for events, weddings, festivals, private parties, etc.

Mark A. Chandler, AZ

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drum, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

I am not only a Grammy winning musician with over 15 years of touring and recording experience, but also a classically trained performer and instructor. I teach various instruments covering all styles and levels and believe in making your learning experience fun and interesting.

Music and the adventure in learning music has been my life's greatest experience. As I travel on that journey, the greatest thing is being an instructor and having the opportunity of taking my students along and sharing the gift of music and feeling the joy of discovery as we play, perform, compose and whatever other elements of music that come before us as we advance towards our goals.

I invite you to hop on board, buckle up and get ready for one of the greatest rides life has to offer.

*** Lesson Details ***
My philosophy with regards to teaching and sharing my experience with students, is firstly to create an environment where learning is fun. This serves to keep a student interested and motivated to learn.

How I do this is to allow the student to choose the music they are interested in, then for myself to provide them with the tools necessary to learn and perform their music. These tools include the theoretical and practical information, knowledge and technique needed to play the songs, then recording and performing these songs and learning by listening back as well as practicing to backing CD's.

I have over the years been fortunate enough to learn several instruments and not only perform and record them but also work them into my teaching program. I teach voice to beginners and intermediate students. With a focus on correct breathing and projection techniques, then we utilize professional backing tracks for practice

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must have their own instruments to practice.

*** Specialties ***
My official training is in the Segovia technique of classical guitar, but I have performed and taught varied genres from folk to country, rock and pop. Jazz and Latin are included in my repertoire, and I also have experience in gospel and contemporary Christian music. I won a South African Grammy in 1992 while performing with the group Jo Day.
