I have been performing and teaching guitar for over 30 years.

I currently teach privately in my home studio and through the Austin Community College.
I have studied guitar with musicians in the Austin area, the University of Texas as well as in Europe.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach in a relaxed and casual manner, reflecting my own personality. Many, if not most of my private students are starting out as an avocation and often have some apprehension in undertaking this endeavor.
The basic core curriculum are any one of the three method books that I have written. In addition to use my extensive library to supplement my own books.
Typically how much students learn varies with each person. The greatest factor is the amount of time a student give to practicing, This also varies considerably due to other demands and commitments each has in his or her life..

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lessons take place in a separate music room which includes guitars, amps, 2 music stands. 1 cat in home which can be kept separate if needed.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, in general.
I've written three books (all self-published):
" Method for Popular Guitar Class"
"Method for Classical Guitar"
"Music Theory for the Guitarist"

Matt M. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Drum, Flute, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Saxophone, Songwriting

About Me

Matt M. was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and found an interest in music as soon as his mom started playing songs through her belly with headphones and a record player. He moved down to Austin, Texas at the age of three where he continued to experiment with toy pianos and banging pots and pans.

At ten years old he discovered an enthusiasm for guitar and saxophone. Picking up those instruments for a couple of years brought him to playing drum set, jamming with his brother and friends, and listening to all sorts of music. His experience advanced in High School as he enjoyed playing in the jazz band, performing at different venues, and catching concerts.

When he graduated from High School, Matt decided to pursue his devotion towards music and enrolled in The University of North Texas. While attending he developed his craft on saxophone, drums, guitar, and worked on his technique with clarinet, flute, and piano. He also played in various ensembles and lab bands under the direction of Jim Riggs, Stefan Karlsson, and John Murphy.

Receiving a Bachelor's in Music in 2009, he stuck around Denton for a few years where he played in a variety of projects such as Bubba Hernandez y Los Super Vatos, Warren Jackson Hearne and Le Leek Electrique (nominated for best group in The Dallas Observer), and gained more experience in teaching. He currently is living back in Austin where he teaches, works as a freelance musician, and is developing other projects.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect an informative, laid back, and fun environment while taking lessons with me. Depending on their level of expertise I will go over the basics, give them technique exercises that will develop muscle memory, and use music theory references. After 3 months we will improve on sight reading, aural skills, and understanding how to apply music theory to all facets of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room whcih includes a drum set, music stands, guitars (2), amp, and seating. No pets. Parking on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my equipment and expect my students to have their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, rock, blues, and classical music.

Josh G. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Blues Guitar, Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory

About Me

Hello everyone, my name is Josh. I have been playing guitar for over 15 years now and have had a successful teaching career for over 4 years. I have a music degree with a focus on blues, jazz and classical guitar. I also play rock, folk, pop, and just about anything you want to learn. I sing and play, improvise, and write my own music. Music is my life and I love being able to share every bit of knowledge I have with my students. It is a blast to watch my students progress and get excited about guitar.

As a player, I learned what to avoid and what to utilize in order to accelerate my playing as quickly as possible and you will save time and limit frustration with my methods. I will teach you how to practice, which is the single most important part of learning. Effective practice yields great results for everyone. Often teachers will only explain the "how"; I teach the "how" and the "why" so you will have ample knowledge to grow and explore on your own.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will teach you to play the songs/styles that you love. I provide my own transcription of each song and explain and demonstrate each element. Learn how to read music, create rhythms for strumming, build your chord knowledge, improvise, train your ear and understand song structures. We will coordinate a lesson plan that will fit your schedule and accelerate your learning.

I keep my lessons fun and upbeat, but with a focus. I ensure full comprehension of all subjects covered, and make sure that each student is challenged and learning constantly.

My main word of advice is "Be patient." Learning an instrument takes time, practice and is a gradual process that is rewarding beyond words. Acknowledge every little improvement in your playing because that is what we want. I promote a minimum of 2-3 separate 30 minute practice sessions. There's no reason to put it off any longer. Let's get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Plenty of parking, music stands, amp, extra picks, tuners, a comfortable setting, great attitude, and seating for parents. Students only need to have their guitar and a notebook.

For Online: Logitech C920, dual cam, good sound quality and lighting, and fast bandwidth

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide music stands, extra picks, a tuner and a great attitude. Students only need to have their guitar and a notebook.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

Richard D. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting, Violin

About Me

My name is Richard, and I am a musician/violinist/composer with a Master of Music in Composition/Theory from Penn State. I began violin lessons at age 5. Since then, I have been involved in bands, orchestras, and choirs throughout school. As a composer and recording artist, I am interested in electronic composition, interactive media, songwriting, film music, and video game music. I have experience writing music for and working with orchestra, choir, chamber ensembles, solo instruments, film, and video games. Along with my sister, Cecilia, we released our debut electronic/pop album, "Henri," under the name, Umu. I have experience teaching violin, piano, music theory, songwriting, and audio production lessons.

I'm always open to the interests of the student and what he/she wants to learn. Being exposed to a variety of different styles of music throughout my life, I can share these experiences through teaching. Whether you are interested in instrumental performance or music composition, you can expect to have a fun time learning things you never knew about music.

*** Lesson Details ***
For the most part, students can expect a fun and laid back teaching environment. I will encourage the student to create reasonable goals. If a student is interested in a particular style or genre, I will ensure that I provide them with the necessary technique and understanding to be able to succeed.

After 3 to 6 months of lessons for instrumental lessons, you can expect to know at least a handful of pieces you are interested in, the basics of your instrument, and some music theory fundamentals. Likewise, for songwriting and audio production, you can expect to have written, composed, and produced a couple of songs and projects.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio with keyboard, guitars, violin, music stand, computer, sheet music. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons.

*** Specialties ***
For teaching violin, I am familiar with the Suzuki method. I also encourage ear training and rote methods for all instruments. Improvisation, theory, and having fun making music are necessary to facilitate student growth.

Natalie M. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Djembe, Drum, Guitar, Music Theory, Percussion, Songwriting

About Me

My name is Natalie McD, I was born in Texas and have been playing music all my life. Music runs in my family, my mother plays the bass, my sister the trombone, my brother the cello, my older sister the oboe, and my grandparents play guitar, mandolin, piano, harmonica, and just about anything else; I've been around all sorts of instruments and know my way around quite a few. Drums is my passion. My mom gave me drum sticks when I was four, and my first Remo practice pad. I play drums in an all female rockabilly band called Danger*Cakes in Austin, Texas and we play shows all over America and hopefully internationally soon. After drums, I'd have to say songwriting is my next biggest passion. Playing acoustic or electric guitar, and some piano, learning mandolin and harmonica, is the best way I find to express myself musically and I've really learned how to use music theory to make a song my own. I've written about 50 songs myself, since I learned how to play guitar in 2006, and have taught myself the other instruments as I needed to for recording purposes as well as song production in general (playing with bands, and other musicians). My mother has been a teacher my whole life, so I've have been in classrooms helping her since I can remember. My first job was at a daycare and I've taught at Girls Rock Camp in Austin and plan on continuing. So teaching, looking after, and definitely entertaining kids is something I feel very comfortable with, as well as any other age, I've taught peers and people older than myself. I love music and I love to have fun.
