Ted S.

Salt Lake City, UT

Guitar lessons are tailored to the student's needs and desires. If a well rounded education is in order then each lesson will consist of core skills, techniques and music theory combined with the breaking down and learning of songs requested by the student. I believe that this is a great way to learn as it involves learning foundational "necessary" skills as well as the fun stuff that keeps us hooked and practicing!

About Ted

Hello,
My name is Ted and I love to teach music. I have been a guitarist for 25 years with 13 years being professional. I have also taught lessons for the last 10 years.
Mostly I enjoy being able to offer back what was given to me when I was a student. A solid skills foundation combined with fun and enjoyment will keep you interested and dedicated to your instrument.
As a guitarist I have spent years doing "session" studio work out of the northern new york music scene in and out of my own production company, Ted S. Music. I first attended SUNY Oneonta and received a Bachelor's
Degree in Music Industry and then went on to start my production company specializing in producing local singer songwriters. This allowed me to become somewhat of a chameleon, having to assume many different playing styles in order to meet the needs of the artists I was producing. Privately I have taught instrument instruction since 2004.
While not recording or teaching I take care of my two Siberian Huskies and spend time with my very artsy wife who loves math, designs dresses, and creates dog collars. We are a unique pair!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are simple.

Initially we will meet and discuss your goals and desires. If you are a younger student I will strongly recommend a music theory foundation however, the focus will always be to find the things that inspire you, center in on those, and learn them. That is the only way to keep you dedicated and interested. A strong foundation will allow you to grow exponentially, but learning your favorite songs will keep you enjoying music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio consists of a learning space for instrument instruction as well as a recording lab for audio engineering instruction.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Country, Bluegrass, Acoustic Fingerstyle, Electric

Katie D.

Spanish Fork, UT

If you take lessons with me, you can expect progression! This takes top priority in my mind. It is very important for my students to know that I encourage keeping track of their progress on their chosen instruments. Setting goals and reaching them can be very satisfying! I recognize that every student has different skill levels and I will teach to the style that they best adapt to. One final note to add, they will be loved!

About Katie

At just 6 months old my mom discovered me humming “Silent Night”. By age 2, I would sit in the bathroom, holding aloft a Reader’s Digest from which I would “read” aloud, belting gibberish at the top of my lungs. Needless to say, my mother quickly enrolled me in the children’s performing group “Sunshine Generation”, since then its been 23 years of singing, dancing, acting, playing piano, playing guitar and playing the ukulele non-stop.

I love music and I love teaching! I have been studying the subject for decades now, two and half to be exact. First, in private lessons with wonderful teache
rs, then in Junior High, and High School. Then I entered the realms of college at Citrus, Riverside City College and my current educating grounds, Brigham Young University(Commercial Music Major). I am a music composer. I write music, lyrics, and score to Film/TV/promotional videos. I am currently on iTunes. I am loving and caring about the students I teach. I've had experience in teaching individual lessons to over 100+ students, singing with touring jazz orchestras, pop/rock groups and directing choirs.

Music is a lifestyle, and it is the lifestyle I love to live. If you want to learn your music skills, let me teach you! Im super fun and I will help you get to the next level! Thanks for reading this, I appreciate it. Don't you feel like you know me a little bit better?

Many genres excite me, however, I excel in Pop, Jazz, R&B, Classical, Country, Contemporary Christian, Broadway, and Singer/songwriter.

Chris M.

Provo, UT

I have played guitar for 14 years. I can teach you many different styles, including classical, jazz, punk rock, hip-hop, R&B, folk, and Latin. Performance experience includes studio recording (jazz, folk, and pop), singer-songwriter solo settings, jazz bands, and rock bands.

About Chris

I am first and foremost a cello teacher, but I have a very diverse background. I have played in five jazz ensembles, eight orchestras, and a few bands here and there. I've attended three universities and have learned from many different teachers and teaching styles. In addition to the cello, I play the piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums and double bass proficiently. I've been teaching on and off for the last eight years, and have come to love teaching lessons 1-on-1. I first attended USF studying cello performance, then BYU-Idaho studying cello performance. I am currently at BYU in Provo studyi
ng commercial music.

Chris was really great. I took several lessons from him. He helped me a lot and had some really good ideas that helped me understand how to play better. He was really understanding as far as my scheduled. Online lessons are difficult, but I live several hours away from the nearest cello teacher, so it was what worked.

Megan C.

Midvale, UT

Using songs you already know and I love, I teach you how music works, and how it applies to the guitar. You will learn common chord progressions, strumming and finger picking patterns, as well as how to read standard notation and tablature music. Most importantly, you will discover the fun and joy of learning the guitar!

About Megan

My name is Megan, and I love teaching guitar lessons! I originally got my bachelor's degree from the University of Utah in Elementary Education. I taught 6th grade for a couple of years, and then went on to teach guitar classes at a private school for another couple of years. At this school, I directed the classical guitar ensemble, and had children from 5-14 playing challenging music together. I started slowly taking on private students in my spare time, and my business has grown, so that now it's all I do!
I was a music major before I switched over to Elementary Ed. I have experience in
playing in groups, solo, composition, as well as the fundamentals of different styles of playing. I specialize in teaching children, but of course love to teach adults as well. I can teach folk, blues, classical, and the music theory behind soloing in any style.
My passion for music, and knowledge of how we all learn make me very capable of guiding you toward your own musical goals.

Megan is a great choice for those wanting to learn classical guitar or popular music. She lets you choose music that's interesting to you and teaches music reading/theory in a fun way. She's way better than that old piano teacher you used to have!

Megan is is such a great teacher! I personally take lessons from her and am so impressed with her. I have had teachers that are really good at their instrument, but cannot communicate and teach well. Megan has a teaching degree from the University of Utah, so she really knows how to teach. She is so good at the guitar and can teach anything you want to learn. She is fun, kind and understanding. Take lessons from her!
