As with any instrument or art, you have to start somewhere and put work into. There are no shortcuts. However, a good instructor can quickly recognize what you wish to learn, zone in on those areas, and most importantly allow you the desire to keep play more. This type of guidance is the “shortcut”. For myself, I have 18+ years playing electric/acoustic guitar I have also attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA playing with other musicians and learning from the best instructors.

Beginner level: we have to start with positioning of you fret and pick hand. You can change a bit of this up later. To start, I might hear you play something: one note, a melody, or a riff just to see where you’re at. Starting from scratch? That’s perfectly fine.

We will work on two aspects: working towards playing single note melodies and strumming/learning basic chords. I would encourage learning the latter as pretty much all contemporary songs can be accompanied by rhythm guitar. Changing ...

First and above all, the guitar is FUN. But it can be a challenge to describe all that a guitar is to a beginner. A guitar can be played and used to express any emotion and can become a friend. In addition to conventional music notation, guitars can be learned more easily using a special system called tablature.

I like to ask what the student is wanting to accomplish on the guitar. What kind of music they like, how they want to utilize the instrument, picking, strumming, fingerstyle, etc. I can then structure lessons to help them accomplish their goals.

About Roger

I have been playing guitar for 55 years and was fortunate to have an excellent teacher when I was young. The guitar is a wonderful instrument and tool for expression but mostly FUN. I hope we can use it to bring happiness into your life.

My son has had a total of 3 virtual guitar instructors all of whom he has really liked but Kenton is his absolute favorite. “I like all of my instructors but Kenton is really the best, he really listens to me and takes into account what I know and what I want to learn when making my lesson. He’s really fun and great at his job”

Kenton is an amazing instructor. I wasn't sure anyone would have enough patience to teach my 7 yr old daughter, but he has such a gift for working with kids that she is actually learning to play and looks forward to every lesson! She is starting to understand how to read music, and Kenton's enthusiasm and encouragement are making it such a fun process. I would recommend him to anyone of any age, at any point of their musical journey!

"I just finished my third lesson with Andrew and I am enjoying my lessons very much. In my first lesson I did not even know how to hold a guitar and he was very patient with me and teaches at a pace I was comfortable with. He is keeping me motivated to learn by introducing new skills and lessons and critiques me in a way that I want to improve. He always sends me home with assignments that I can use to practice and we typically spend the beginning of the next class going over it. He will make sure to correct any bad-habits that I may be developing and shows me ways in which I can improve. I feel this helps build a solid foundation that I hope to build upon in the years to come. I highly recommend learning guitar from Andrew."

"I took guitar lessons from Billy for over 10 years. He is an outstanding teacher who is challenging but at the same time very patient. We managed to go through a very extensive repertoire of pieces ranging from the many Brazilian styles to Latin music and Flamenco. Not only is he a skilled and talented performer but his love and enthusiasm for teaching coupled with his extensive knowledge makes him the perfect choice for an instructor. For many years I took lessons at home with Billy but due to my hectic schedule we switched to Skype lessons. I was pleasantly surprised to find out the quality of the lessons was not affected in any way"
