About Me

I have been involved in music for most of his life. I started playing piano at an early age and was involved with a church bell choir as well. During High School, I played in the Bishop Lynch High School marching band drumline as well as the school’s symphonic band. At the tender age of 16, I picked up the guitar, inspired by the Guitar Hero game, little did I know how difficult the real thing was! I persevered and discovered that music was my true passion and in 2009 was accepted into the University of North Texas’ prestigious music program. During this time, I played in the Trinity United Methodist’s worship team for a year and half, playing both lead and rhythm in the band. I graduated magna cum laude from UNT in Spring 2012 with a bachelors in music with a concentration in classical guitar. I have received guitar lessons personally for 5 years from northern Plano guitar teacher Earl Bailey and University of North Texas Doctorate students Mike Morey and Armin Abdihodzic. I enjoy composing music in my spare time in addition to working as a teacher and a freelance musician. I also play in the Dallas group known as Guitarchestra which plays classical music in a rock band setting.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a generally set curriculum for the first few months and it gradually evolves to the student's wants, needs, and desires over the course of about six months. Much of this depends on a student's practicing, willingness to learn, and apt for the instrument. I will be teaching them to play chords, scales, a few basic songs, know the fret board, and some minor improvisation to their favorite tunes. Every student starts off from the same place but once the first few months has passed, the floodgates to some real fun will open and the possibilities are endless!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The in-studio lessons are taught in the living room which includes seating for parents. Upon request, parents can use WiFi to access the internet on their phone, tablet, or computer. Room includes music stands, materials, has 1 acoustic guitar, multiple electric guitars and amps. No pets. Non-smoking. Parking: a few spaces available out front or roof of garage with elevator access.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the equipment for my own instruments. I also provide the student with printed material which includes a beginner packet as well as more intermediate/advanced material as the student progresses. The student must provide their own equipment including a personal amp, guitar, and music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in blues, rock, and metal. I also specialize in music theory and song writing.

Blake B. Fort Worth, TX

Subjects Taught

Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory

About Me

Hello!

I offer lessons to the north Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I received my Bachelor's degree in Music specializing in classical guitar in 2011. In addition, 10 years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, and alternative styles with electric and acoustic guitars allows me to confidently enjoy playing and teaching these styles as well. I can teach you or your child the skills needed to pursue hobbies or serious musical goals! Personal enjoyment, gigs, performances, recitals, university auditions, or just playing for your friends. My mission is to help you to achieve your own unique goals in an encouraging environment where you or your child feel free to ask questions and set the pace of the lesson. When you meet me it will be clear immediately that I'm not an intimidating person and I honestly want you or your child to feel comfortable and enjoy learning from me. If you are a beginner, great! No bad habits yet. If you already have experience, great! We'll fix those bad habits, if needed, and take your playing to a higher level.

Some of my accomplishments include:

Performing in Master Classes for virtuosic classical guitarists such as Michael Partington, Andrew Zohn and Richard Savino.

Performing solo and group repertoire at a concert level with classical guitar.

I am well versed in western music theory ranging from Ancient to Modern.

Passed examinations in sight reading, transposition, scales and performance for guitar, percussion and keyboard instruments.

Various band gigs with electric and steel string acoustic guitar. I also played drum set. Not at the same time.

*** Lesson Details ***

No two of my lessons are exactly the same. Each lesson is tailored and modified to meet the needs and desires of each student. I want to figure out who you are and where you want to go musically and use that as a foundation to build lessons on. I teach with a laid back style and never yell or scold. The more comfortable you feel during the lesson the more we can get accomplished. The perfect lesson environment is one in which you or your child feel free to ask questions and play an active role in the learning experience.

I use the Aaron Shearer and Suzuki method books, primarily, for classical guitar lessons. These books help you develop your technique and theory. At the same time, we integrate various songs and pieces at your discretion that are appropriate for the current level of playing and that appeal to you personally. For rock, blues, folk, country, etc. I have various technique books to get us moving along until we know which direction you want to go.

Ben H. Euless, TX

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Bluegrass Guitar, Blues Guitar, Classical Guitar, Composition, Country Guitar, Ear Training, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Theory, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

Hello, my name is Ben and GUITAR IS MY BUSINESS...AND MY BUSINESS IS GOOD so please consider me. I've been playing guitar for over 18 years and have been in playing bands for 12 years. Recently after the band broke up, I decided to further my education and went to Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. There I was taught by the best guitar players in the world. Marty Friedman, Paul Gilbert, Scott Henderson, Tommy Emmanuel and Johnny Hiland were just a few of the great players who gave clinics there. I received a degree in Guitar Performance and the knowledge I received there made me UNDERSTAND the mystery that is the guitar.

I can teach Rock/Metal, Country (lead and rhythm), Blues, Alternative, Acoustic, Classical, Chord Melody, Melodic Soloing, Twang, Chords, Scales, Modes, Many different lead and rhythm techniques and more importantly any song you want to go over.

I feel learning to play your favorite songs is the most important and the most fun about guitar playing. After playing songs, some of the information given (scales, chords, theory, ear-training) starts to make some since and you begin to slowly figure the guitar out.

Theory and Ear-training I feel are very important to learn when trying to understand music. It just gives you a basic mathematical way of understanding how music works. It can be very frustrating to learn and takes some time to sink in so if you don't want to learn it then that is great. Ear-training is cool because when you start to understand it you can actually hear music and not just listen to it. You can listen to a chord progression on the radio and go home and play it and also improvise over it.

I encourage BEGINNERS through EXPERT to at least hear what I have to say. I have A LOT of information to give about the guitar. I played for ten years made 2 demo CDs, one full length album, another demo specifically for Metal Blade Records, was in a big cover band and so I thought I knew it all and was a great guitar player. Then I went to GUITAR SCHOOL in Hollywood and reality hit me.
I wasn't as good as I thought. When you hear the best guitar players in the world everyday for a year and a half like I did at Musicians Institute it makes you want to be better and practice, practice, practice. I learned everything there about guitar and music and I know the Right way to teach.

Please consider me for your guitar teacher I will make it fun and a good learning experience as well.

Thank you,
Ben

*** Lesson Details ***
It depends on what level the student is on and that is where we will go with the lesson. If you are a beginner we will start with the very basics. I try to make it to where you can easily understand everything taught. The most important part of the lesson is you are having fun with playing the guitar and also getting as much information as possible. Upper level students may want to go over a song they are learning or want to know about theory or chords. Usually we will talk about where you are at with your playing and then go from there.

Thanks.

About Me

I teach my students how to understand how music is put together so they can learn even more on their own.

I read, write, and play all styles and I focus on teaching the student fundamentals that work in all styles of music ....AND I get them going on the style they are interested in - pop, rock, country, folk, etc.

I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing.

I am also good at preparing students for college music classes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to break it down into small steps and accomplish them, then move on to the next.

Each person learns differently and I am good at connecting with how you learn - then we can use a book or CD or not according to your needs.

I have several books to choose from as well as CDs and other tools. BUT .....some things are learned best through 1 on 1 instruction and explanation without a book.

I like to see progress every week and I usually do.
