Mark L. Las Vegas, NV

You will be guided by me through method books. You will use a notation system that suits you best. I have developed a system a 6 year old can read/play on guitar. I will create supplemental materials to help you fill your voids so you can catch up to your appropriate level.

About Mark

I teach according to your individual needs. I help you become successful on piano, violin, viola, bass, guitar. I help you learn the instrument and learn to read music with my own ideas using fun worksheets and songs you really like to learn how to play. I fill your voids with activities such as practice techniques, sub-lessons, and ear training. I guide you toward proper posture, tone development, and the ability to keep a steady beat. I help you develop your musical independence by tweaking lessons to help you succeed. I believe talent is not a factor in learning. Mastering an instrument is the result of effective instruction and step by step guidance toward foundations and skills. I love to teach private lessons because I believe in spreading the word to make the great gift of playing ...

Mark has been teaching our 5 year old son the violin and we could not be happier. If we could give him 10 stars we would! He is an amazing instructor. Our son is growing leaps and bounds under Mark's direction.

My 13 year old granddaughter just finished her 1st year of viola at school in June 2014 and she wanted to take summer lessons to stay sharp. There were a lot of teachers available within a 10-15 minute drive, but after trying other teachers, we chose Mark (a 30 minute drive ) because, as others have commented, he is extremely patient and teaches by correcting, not criticizing. He simply has a gift for teaching. I have never regretted the extra drive. Once you've had a lesson with him, you won't want to go to anyone else.

The best violin instructor

Mark is a wonderful violin instructor. It has been a joy to watch him teach my daughter. Mark has so many great qualities in his teaching skills in bringing out the best in a student. My daughter has learned to have confidence and a passion for playing the violin and I feel that he is the reason behind it. I highly recommend Mark as an instructor. He is patient and kind and knows how to approach each student to fit their learning needs.
Glenn W. Henderson, NV

I specialize in providing a great foundation for learning the instrument. Too many students, new to the guitar, get frustrated and quit after just a few lessons, because it falls short of their expectations and they find they are not progressing. I make certain to keep the enthusiasm intact through the entire learning process by making sure the student is actually playing the instrument. I like to think of my method as "Fast Track to Playing Guitar"; my goal is to keep the student's interest in the instrument at a sustained level while they are grasping the fundamentals. Because I teach Voice as well, and have made a living accompanying myself on the guitar, I can combine those attributes for my students, if they desire to accompany themselves while singing. I find that many of my students really enjoy that option, and I have uncovered many a student who had never thought of themselves as a vocalist, singing and playing with astounding results... My success rate of having my students ...

About Glenn

I have been active in the entertainment industry since the age of 12, when I gave my first professional performance. Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the house, in the yard, in the classroom. That is perhaps why I identify so well with the young people who gather so much enjoyment from "just singing" at every opportunity. I studied professionally for over 10 years with renown soprano and voice teacher Sylvia Jensen, who was instrumental in the enhancement of my vocal knowledge and technique. She is now the Director of Education for the Miss Ohio pageants of the Miss America competitions, elevating many young ladies to the national ...

My daughter is 14 years old. She has been taking voice lessons for the past two years. We moved to a very suburban area where there were no voice teachers close to our town. We tried online lesson with Glen for the first time. We are re-signing up. My daughter and I are pleased to find a instructor as gifted as Glenn.

About Edward

My name is Edward and I have been playing music most of my life. I was involved in every form of music education that I could find, and took private lessons on guitar and piano for ten years. During this time, I learned that I improved when I performed music that I liked. I attended the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY and received a B.S. in Studio Music in 1996. I then moved to San Diego, CA and started my own business teaching music. The lessons were taught at the students' homes and I incorporated the students' interests in teaching. I have also performed for many years and have written many songs that have been recorded and performed.

As an adult, time to practice is a luxury. I really like that the practice pieces are music that I like and are challenging enough for me to enjoy the time spent. Also, he takes time to answer my questions thoroughly, so that I actually feel like I am learning. He is patient and isn't hard on me when I make mistakes. I have started lessons a couple of times, without success. I believe Edward, by far has the best technique and teaching style, for me to enjoy this learning experience.

About Andrew

Andrew is a multi-instrumentalist (with focus on electric, acoustic, and nylon-string guitars) from Pennsylvania that settled in Las Vegas with his wife in the autumn of 2013. After completing a music degree in Los Angeles in 2008, he spent one year in L.A., composing music for The Weather Channel, and backing a singer-songwriter that performed at venues all over the city and regularly on a few local TV and radio shows. In the summer of 2009 he and two of his fellow graduates began working as orchestra and top-40 band musicians for a well-known cruise line. One contract grew into ten, eventually spanning five years, three cruise lines, and 70 countries spread across five continents, while playing different shows every night, from instrumentalists and singers of every genre, to jugglers ...

Guitar lessons will be fully customized to your needs. At our first lesson we will talk about your current abilities vs. your long and short-term goals.

I will then develop a plan, including exercises, songs, and a sample practice schedule that will get you where you want to be if you put in the time and effort!

Lessons will be typically broken into sections of harmony, technique and tune learning. Although, this is flexible, depending on the student.

I understand that every student learns differently and has different interests.

Having taught hundreds of students, all from different backgrounds and age ranges, I have the experience and ability to custom-tailor lessons to your needs.

An excellent teacher and guitar player at the same time

When I first approached Nick I was a complete newbie and had no idea what I was doing on the guitar. Not knowing how to truly spend my practice time, read notes or even hold the pick correctly, Nick taught me the basics from the first lesson and eventually so much more. Ultimately, he helped realize a level of playing I couldn't have achieved on my own.

With that said, many things impressed me about Nick. First and foremost of these was his versatile and creative teaching style. He consistently adapted each lesson to fit my level, interests and problem areas. Whatever I needed to work on he made sure the lesson was spent wisely so I could get the most out of my time with him and address those issues that would improve my overall level of playing. If a technique or musical piece wasn't improved on after one or two lessons, he made sure to go back to it in subsequent lessons until he was convinced I was able to play it properly. He never settled for something being played in an average manner, but constantly pushed me to master the issue at hand. At the same time he made sure I was always being challenged with new material to continue building on my skills and in the process would not become bored.

Secondly, Nick is an outstanding guitar player who not only has amazing technique, but is well versed in his knowledge of the instrument and the many ways it can be played. He's not a one sided guitar player who only sticks to a single variety of playing, and I feel that gives him a unique ability to provide well rounded instruction to his students. When I was being taught by Nick I truly felt that I was being taught by a teacher who knew what he was talking about and could provide the best instruction possible.

Lastly, supporting his abilities on the guitar is Nick's knowledge of music theory and ability to make it both easy to understand and fun to learn . Learning about the theory behind the instrument aided my understanding of the guitar and gave me an additional layer of knowledge that I didn't think I'd ever get from a guitar lesson.

In the end Nick guided me in correcting many errors that I had ingrained into my playing from hours of incorrect self-practice and helped me vastly increase my skill level on the guitar. I can honestly say that had it not been for him I would never have gotten out of the beginner stage, nor would I have been able to learn as much as I did without his help. If you want to learn guitar or improve your skills I highly recommend getting in touch with Nick and taking lessons with him. He'll help you learn the instrument on both a macro and micro level that will improve your playing abilities and knowledge. Whether you're a beginner or advanced he'll make sure you master the proper techniques given your skill level, while still making the lessons enjoyable and introducing you to material that will test your limits.

Fantastic Teacher!

Nick is a fantastic teacher! I had him teach me guitar a while back for a few years and I've learned so much more from him other than just learning how to play! I've learned how to write music, memoriation and finger techniques to play, tips and help to play on stage, and so much more! He's a great teacher and a fun and awesome guy! I highly recommend him as your guitar teacher!

Richard G. Las Vegas, NV

I do not teach guitar for readers or cover artists. If you want to learn how to find your own style and build on what is unique and valuable in what you play, I can help you.

As with other subjects I teach, I typically can't offer much to an already advanced player as they've already acquired and embedded habits I will train less experienced players to either avoid or incorporate from a creative rather than copy-cat methodology.
