I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, from 5-year-old beginners to advanced students who'd like fine tuning. I'm relaxed and laid back while encouraging you to reach your potential. Whether you're an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert in need of some fine tuning, I'll carefully evaluate your strengths and weakness and create a lesson plan suited to your individual learning style, interests and needs. We'll discuss where you'd like to go with music, and I'll help you get there!

Acting, Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice
I started playing piano when I was 8. I started writing compositions around 9. Since I was singing in the choir, I began to fuse piano and singing, until I wrote my first song with words when I was twelve. Along the way I learned guitar, bass, drums, and various forms of composition and recording techniques. I toured with my band The Navigators for several years and I have had compositions of mine in TV shows like "The Unit" and in the documentary "Dreamriders" as well as various independent films. Along the way I have taught every age group from six months of age up to adult.

I'm not a big fan of the "one-size fits all" teaching method. I prefer the "snowflake" approach- every student is different. Some just want to learn to play guitar to play their girlfriend a few songs- others want to dedicate their lives to being a musician. I can help them both, but I'll go about it differently. What a student accomplishes is determined by their motivation, discipline and passion. My job is to amplify their motivation, refine their discipline and direct their passion. I like to think of myself as a sherpa- the student has to climb the mountain themselves, but I'll be there to help guide them along the path.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Electric 88 weighted keys; guitars (electric & acoustic); cables/amp; I also have recording gear for students interested in making recordings of their performances.
*** Specialties ***
I have extensive experience in the pop field. Genres include folk, pop, rock. I have composed music for film and television, so I am strongest in composition. I have taught other subjects in every age range from 6 months to 18 years of age.
Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Guitar
I picked up the guitar 13 years ago and have always had a big passion for teaching. I switched my specialty to bass after three years and have taken it farther than I thought I ever could. In addition to the passion I have for playing my passion for teaching has never been stronger.
Bass being my specialty, I teach everyone from beginner to master. Specialize in advanced techniques like pop-snap, harmonics and two hand tapping.
For both guitar and bass I base all of my lessons on music theory and use that as a foundation for learning and understanding all music.

I am best suited to help those who are new to guitar and are looking to get started in the right direction. Navigating the world of solo instruction is tough, as I know myself, but with a little simple guidance the road is a little more clear and easier to traverse.
I am no guitar virtuoso but am more than capable of teaching beginners everything they need to know to get started. Personally, I feel this is an advantage to any potential students. My ego is checked at the door because I have no ego. I'm easier to approach with questions or concerns that you might feel are "dumb" (their not!) than a complete guitar know-it-all who enjoys demonstrating his awesome sweeping technique or that he/she can play Eruption in their sleep on a regular basis (which I always found extremely intimidating). I COMPLETELY understand the difficulties in first picking up the guitar and trying to make cohesive noise come out.
Hello to all future students! My name is Benjamin Gray, I am a guitar teacher, and have been fascinated with learning and teaching for several years. I have been playing guitar for 11 years, and relatively new to teaching. I'm fun and outgoing, and have a lot of knowledge to give. I am currently a student at UofL, in their Computer Information Systems program. I have experience teaching all levels of players, from honing advanced techniques, to teaching the basics. I have helped a handful of students learn to play, from reading tabs, to keeping basic time, to learning techniques such as sweep picking, tapping, and soloing within scales. Though I may be a bit unorthodox in my teaching style, I feel that guitar is an expression of the soul and should be a form of my student's self expression! I am also a fountain of knowledge on gear, and helping beginner players work on their instruments and help with minor fixes and set-up issues.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
