Standard strum accompaniment patterns in various keys, alternating bass lines, walk-ups, hammer-on and pull-off embellishments, flatpicking melodies, banjo-style forward and backward rolls, and traditional tunes, and much more.

About Tim
I love to help anyone who has been told they're not able to play guitar, has quit out of frustration, or been told they're too old or too young to play.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is customized to your learning style and different for everyone depending on what you want to learn. Most of my students like to learn from scratch which would include the following:
In the first 3 lessons you will learn basic guitar fundamentals, basic 1-4-5 song progressions (the stuff that 85% of all music we listen to is made up of), left hand / right hand coordination, picking techniques, how to strum, mute, & play notes on the guitar.

We can play as a band too. When you are ready, I love to bring out the drum or backing tracks to your favorite artists songs while you play guitar and I play what your not, giving you the feel of a live group
situation that can make learning at your lesson more fun.

Genres include Acoustic, Blues, Country, R&B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Rock, Pop and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My Line 6 Spider Jam will take any wave file and speed up or slow down the tempo and lower or higher the key to your preference.

Tim is great. I haven’t play guitar in many years and Tim got me back up and learning easily. The lessons are paced well and I’m covering both theory and the material I’m interested in. He’s very knowledgeable encouraging and gives me extra tips and tricks to make the lessons fun. I highly recommend Tim.

My method of teaching focuses on building up strengths and knowledge so that a student can become proficient at learning on their own. I do this by creating a custom curriculum for each individual I teach. This accomplishes two things, keeping you as a student entertained and enthusiastic. I have background in music theory, and have taught for several years to beginners, and intermediate students. This has allowed me to learn to adapt to each individuals learning style so that they progress quickly, and comfortably.

About Austin
Austin has been teaching private lessons since 2012. Austin has helped students find passion in music, prepare for performances, complete classes, and overcome stage fright. He also has taught several people with autism, helping them find a path that is suited for them. Allowing them to thrive in the subject.

Austin took private piano lessons in 2007 - 2009 with a professor from Stetson University. Austin was also mentored in guitar with several instructors over the course of 2 years. As an expert in his field, Austin looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Austin's goal is to create an environment that is personable, fun, informative and energetic!

Hey there!
My passions are technique and accuracy; by perfecting technique comes a deeper understanding of theory. I have lots of teaching methods that will encourage you to play your favorite songs and styles with the sounds you like.
I'll focus on the very basics of guitar theory in order to get to a higher level of understanding music theory.
I will challenge you! We will have lots of fun and you will see, hear, and feel your own improvements with my teachings.

About Shai
If you are fascinated about guitar technique and awesome weird sounds that you can do with your guitar, you will like having lessons with me.

I began as a classical guitar player, studying traditional classical pieces and applying them to my guitar. During that time I began to explore and became drawn to rock music, virtuoso guitarists, and heavy metal. My fascination with the electric guitar, the techniques, the speed and all the things that comes with it are still pulling me in.

Later on in life I fell in love with Flamenco, specifically Paco De Lucia.
I learned his songs and combined it with my own music while studying fusion and finger picking styles; every style I liked, I learned, I mastered, but I know, as much as I teach, I also learn.

Today I play in LA and Israel, I produce projects, record guitar tracks and songs, and teac
h at my studio or online.

As a teacher I will challenge you! I will give you multiple exercises and lots of homework. Over the years, my students have won guitar contests, gotten into successful bands, and are touring around the world. If you are willing to work hard, you will get better! You will see, hear, and feel the difference in your playing. I'll show you the way and will be with you step by step.

Looking forward to meet you!

Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for over half my life and teaching for five years now. My love for music has played a huge role in my life, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Whether you are wanting to learn how to perform, compose music, or play your favorite song, I promise to help you achieve your goal. I’ve taught a variety of ages, and I truly believe it's never too early or late to learn an instrument. Every student is unique in what they are wanting to learn, so I promise to structure each student’s lessons to fit their individual goals and interests. It's also very important to me that my students enjoy each and every lesson, so the student is in complete control of their learning.

About Daniel
Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for over half my life and teaching for five years now. I first began learning guitar at a young age, and my passion for music has grown ever since.

My musical education began with guitar and music theory lessons when I was ten years old and continued until I graduated high school. These lessons included songwriting, music theory, and many other topics related to guitar. I also learned a variety of musical genres, including classic rock, acoustic, pop, country, and a bunch more. Being exposed to such a wide range of artists and genres was an incredible experience because it allowed me to learn numerous techniques and musical arrangements. This is also where I fell in love with artists like John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. These influential artists played a huge role in sh
aping my guitar playing, songwriting, and technique. This also led to me joining a singer-songwriter trio called Two Beards and a Boy where I was the lead guitarist. We currently perform at city events, fundraisers, and numerous restaurants in the DFW area.

In middle school, I became the lead electric guitarist in my church’s band. I have also lead the worship service on multiple occasions and subbed in at different instruments as needed. I also began taking private vocal performance lessons where I learned how to read music, sight read, and other musical skills. I continued taking these lessons in high school, where I was involved in multiple nationally ranked choirs and performed at Carnegie Hall in 2016. Being involved in my high school's varsity choir not only honed my overall musical abilities but led to opportunities accompanying the choir as a guitarist.

My love for music has played a huge role in my life, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Nothing beats the excitement of a student as they’re able to play their first song. Whether you are wanting to learn how to perform, compose music, or play your favorite song, I promise to help you achieve your goal.

I began giving guitar and music theory lessons in high school. I’ve taught a variety of ages, and I truly believe it's never too early or late to learn an instrument. Every student is unique in what they are wanting to learn, so I promise to structure each student’s lessons to fit their individual goals and interests. Also, it's very important to me that my students enjoy each and every lesson, so the student is in complete control of their learning. I have been working with children and youth for many years through the Upward Sports program, and I love building connections with all of my students to create a comfortable and fun learning environment.

As a college student at UT, I am very flexible with scheduling, so feel free to contact me about available times for lessons. I hope to hear from you soon, and please let me know if you have any questions!

Brian is a very patient and knowledgeable musician. He can work with and teach a person at any age and/or skill level. I've made so much progress on the banjo in a pretty short amount of time, and could not have done so without a teacher. He charges great prices and the lessons and material are worth every penny!

My name's Alex Ivanov, I'm a 24 year old guitarist and alumni of Berklee College of Music. I've been a guitar instructor for 6 years, who's taught students in Boston and Orlando. I'm proficient with styles, ranging from Rock, Blues, Classical, Pop, Metal, Jazz, Rockabilly, Country, Latin and Reggae.

I teach Beginner level students to Advanced, and everything in between.
For Beginners, I maintain a fun and manageable curriculum of easy and quick to learn songs!
For more experienced players, I implement music theory into learning songs. The goal is to not only learn music note for note, but to understand the function of these notes and how they relate to chords and scales!

About Alex
My name's Alex Ivanov, I'm a 24 year old lead guitarist and alumni at Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Business.

At the age of 9, I picked up the electric guitar and haven't put it down since. Following in my parent's footsteps, I began my professional musician career that same year, performing live shows at venues all over the central Florida region. I've strived to tackle all different genres of music, and search for any outlet where he can play.

With my current band, I play guitar driven hard rock and blues with an emphasis on guitar driven! When attending school I played in jazz combos, Brazilian guitar ensembles, Pop and top 40 bands, and at home I play Bach and Mozart sonatas for fun! I love music and one can always find me with a guitar in hand, looking for new sounds, and new ways of understanding the instrument!

Hey! I offer in person, one-on-one lessons in the Fort Collins, Colorado area. I recently received my Master's degree in music at University of Northern Colorado and received my Bachelors in guitar performance at Utah State University. I charge $30 for a half hour lesson and $50 for a full hour lesson. I also offer discounted skype lessons. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks

About Lance
My teaching philosophy is simple; I want to help my students achieve the goals they have with music. Whether that is learning a few simple Taylor Swift songs or passing a entrance audition into a university, I want to see my students succeed. I have worked on a curriculum that teaches skills and concepts that every musician must know. The combination of having a good curriculum in combination with teaching the students the music they love, creates good musicians and inspired students that are excited to come to guitar lessons each week.
I structure my lessons into four categories; lines, chords, technique, and repertoire. Lines can include melodies, scales, and for more advanced students soloing. Technique is an important area of focus for guitarists. Many older guitarists I know have injuries due to bad technique. Its very important to
instill proper technique in younger students so they won’t develop bad habits and have injuries later in life.
I love teaching guitar. It has been the most rewarding thing in my life. Seeing students gain confidence in their playing and also in themselves is an incredible experience. As a life long student of music myself I believe it is crucial to create musicians and music lovers out of our students.
