One awesome teacher

Jill is one of the hidden jewels you hear people speak of; in Jill's case she is the hidden jewel when it comes to music teachers. Her never ceases to amaze in her abilities and there are many. I've seen her multitask a group of children during a performance, all playing different instruments simultaneously, without missing a note of her own piano playing. She's a born leader and teacher, a consummate musical artist. Everything she does is golden, truly! She was the first teacher who was able to teach me rhythm in my left hand, I'm really not musically inclined, yet she was able to teach me how to play the piano pressing me pass my own ability. It's nice to sit down and be able to play something at the piano instead of just wishing I could. When it comes to small children, she's a hoot and so patient, all the kids love and adore her. My own grandson took lessons from Jill and gain such confidence in his ability he is now learning to play the cello, he simply loves music. Jill instills confidence in children and adults. She has a 'yes you can' attitude and it flows into her students. She's a winner and a true gem. You'll not regret having Jill as a teacher.

About Eric

Eric comes from a family of musicians. He began guitar lessons at age five as the Beatles were invading the American music scene. Growing up in New Jersey, Eric performed in rock bands until becoming interested in classical guitar. With New York City only a short bus ride away, he spent as much time as possible in the city, studying guitar with Russian born Classical Guitarist, Dr. Alexander Bellow, and Jazz Legend "Bucky" Pizzarelli. During this time he attended recitals of such notables as Andre Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams. Being immersed in this musical scene inspired him to make music his life.

Eric earned a degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford, where he studied under the direction of guitar ...

Excellent Teacher

Dennis is an all around great teacher. He is easy and comfortable to work with, but knows exactly how and when to get things done. Most importantly for me, Dennis was able to let me know which things I needed to work on to better my musicianship while also helping me figure out how to utilize what I had already accomplished to achieve new goals. As a metal player getting into jazz improvisation I had some really strong skills and many things that needed serious work. Dennis was able to help me use my strengths from previous experience to become better at something entirely new.
Mindful of tradition, but more interested in innovation, Dennis has a vast knowledge of modern styles, chord progressions, chord shapes, and scales you can't just learn from any guitar teacher. You can hear it on his record; Dennis is just as much of an individual in his playing as he is in his teaching. Unfortunately due to relocation I can no longer take lessons from Dennis but he got the ball rolling for me into new worlds of guitar playing and musical thinking that has been incredibly valuable to me.

I decided to re-kindle my guitar playing skills after putting down the instrument for several years and not knowing what results to expect. I was amazed to find my ability to play quickly returning while taking lessons with Dennis. He was patient, encouraging and always professional and courteous. I am now practicing every day and continue to progress. I would encourage anyone seeking a skilled and talented instructor to sign up with Dennis. He has versatility with many different styles of playing and accomplished at them all.

I was fortunate to meet Dennis and partake in six months of intensive weekly sessions which were no-nonsense. My instrument of choice is the acoustic and electric guitar.

Dennis adds a shade of color to the audible realm of musical expression that invites all practitioners to give ear to Dennis' command of the guitar. Ask him what he's been working on lately and he will show you something; it's more than enough to inspire you to keep learning and discover your own musical voice.

Dennis was humble in sharing his credentials and is a continuous student of learning himself. He clearly shows no bias and imparts his knowledge to anyone willing to learn.

Due to relocation, we could no longer meet up in person for lessons. But now that Dennis is geared up to provide teaching services online, I can still effectively take lessons regardless of location.

See "Guitar" for more information

Heavy emphasis on technique (specifically right hand), tone production (making sure your guitar sounds good), and reading notation. These aspects are the core elements of any good classical guitar player.

I usually like to cover at least some sort of technical work every lesson, followed by building a basic repertoire of music

About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 26 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area.
My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces for small art clubs and events. Alongside gigging, I also began teaching guitar, ear training, and music theory when I turned 18 and have been teaching full time ever since. During that time I also spent 4 years in music school for classical guitar. Currently I spend my time teaching, recording, and performing various styles including rock, jazz, pop, hip-hop, musical theater, metal, and country.

Throughout the 8 years I have been an instructor I believe I have refined my teaching style to ...

Christian is a career guitar performer and instructor. He is fluid on the fretboard and the blackboard. Not only is he knowledgeable about technique and composition but his acumen of contemporary guitar history is comprehensive, I can't believe I got so lucky to have chosen Christian first round on TakeLessons by simply reading his bio. He has instilled in me the desire to become a better player and increased my enjoyment of the instrument tenfold. Thanks Christian!

I have six years of experience in musical theory, composition and performance. I specialize in Guitar and piano as the advanced or classical level and I do teach other instruments, i.e. drums, ukulele, mandolin, etc., in moreso a beginner level since I would rate myself as an intermediate player in the later.

About Nicholas

Hiya there! I'm a student studying to work my way into the educational system. My utmost goal is to not just educate you/your child/your friend/your uncle/your dog, but to leave with them feeling more confident in the studies. I don't want anything less than for them to feel like they're understanding the concepts and I will not leave until that is made clear.

I have extensive study in English composition, vocabulary, rhetoric, and language arts and two years experience in tutoring students in math and English. I am contemplating minoring in English and am a creative writer in my free time!

Lastly, I have six years of music theory, teaching and performing experience. My areas of expertise include guitar, piano and other miscellaneous string instruments. I have done ...
