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

About Me

*** Travel Equipment ***
If needed, I can provide guitars and amplifiers. I do prefer my students to have their own equipment so they may practice between lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I keep myself open to all opportunities where I am able to share my knowledge with others and help them improve their skills in the particular subjects in which I am proficient. From Music to Photography to Microsoft Office, I look forward to helping others become more confident in their own skills.

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.

I have developed a plethora of techniques for teaching music and look forward to sharing these with you.

Kierstyn G. Glendale, AZ

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Arrangement and Composition, Bass Guitar, Christian Gospel, Classical Piano, Composition, Drum, Ear Training, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

Kierstyn G. has diverse and substantial experience in piano performance, classical composition, and private pedagogy. A pianist for 15 years, a drummer for 13, a guitarist for 7, and a saxophonist for 6, Kierstyn loves teaching, composing, and performing in many styles. She has performed in a few venues valley-wide such as the Wigwam Resort, and the Ground Controls in Goodyear and in Verrado. She also has played for two weddings and several private parties. She has played extensively, both solo and on worship teams, for three different churches over a period of more than 4 years. She was the accompanist for all three choirs (junior high, concert, and premiere) at her high school during her senior year, and also played in the jazz, concert, and marching bands in high school.

Kierstyn began composing short songs at the age of 7, and received a 98 (Superior) rating on her first classical composition at the age of 12 in the composition contest given by the Arizona Federation of Music Clubs. Since then, she has written more than ten classical pieces of different time periods and instrumentation and over 100 songs in the styles of pop, country, progressive rock, metal, and jazz. She hopes to expand into writing film scores and to fuse her love of jazz music into her classical pieces during her time at Arizona State University, as she is currently pursuing a Bachelor's of Music in Composition there.

Over the years, Kierstyn has taught 11 students private lessons in piano, guitar (electric, acoustic, classical), drums, and clarinet. She can also play/teach saxophone (alto, tenor, baritone), trombone, and electric bass. Kierstyn has worked with students aged 5-23 and everything in between. She absolutely adores sharing her passion for music with children, and wants them to have the same advantages musically that she did growing up.
