Private Guitar Teacher

Over the last decade of teaching guitar full time to hundreds of students, my passion remains the same - teaching my students how to play the guitar, not just the songs. My own journey as a heavy metal lead guitarist and songwriter who's transitioned to classical music, folk and the blues has prepared me to teach how to play the guitar in almost every single style of music.

About Greg

For the last thirty years, from the day that I got my first electric as a teenager, to my work today as an acoustic guitarist for the band, Timberwood, and currently as a teacher of more than forty students a week, my life has been devoted to the guitar. I'm an experienced veteran of the meta

With over 4 years of teaching experience, 6 years of gigging and playing the guitar for 14 years, I have cultivated a unique approach to teaching the guitar. I take the time to listen to my students, hear their struggles and dreams and create a lesson plan that is truly individual. I've worked with beginners who've never touched a guitar to professionals looking to broaden their horizons, all ages too! I am a very professional, motivated and flexible teacher looking to help you learn the guitar!

The best way to learn the guitar is by learning the songs you love. As a beginner, we will start by learning the foundation to guitar playing such as hand placement and picking techniques. We will quickly jump into playing simple chords and scales, and learning the theory behind them. Before you know it, we will be playing your favorite songs and how to play solos over them.

A few quick things about me:
• Have been teaching for 16 years
• Am a professional studio musician
• Have played in several touring bands
• Play/teach nearly all genres
• Took 12 years of lessons from a master
• Love teaching all ages and genres

Enough about me! We all know that everyone learns differently and has different strengths and weaknesses. My process is to analyze each student's unique abilities and to create a personalized learning experience for everyone. I have taught people from 5 to 83. I believe it is important to be empathetic to each person's needs, for example, I have experience teaching left-handed people, kids with Cerebral Palsy, Asperger's syndrome, people with missing fingers and other difficulties. Parents always ask me how I can be so patient with their kids, (the real secret is that I don't have to take them home ;) but on a serious note, I always remember the extreme amount of frustrating hours I put in before I got any real results. It's the least

My son really enjoyed his lesson. Logan was sweet and “cool.” It’s exactly what my son was hoping for. He learned a few basic things and then was starting to play “Happy Birthday.” He is very excited to take his next lesson and show Logan how hard he practiced.

Matt’s lessons are exactly what I’ve been looking for. He puts together wonderfully well-crafted lessons — tailored to my level and tastes — that build on one another, methodically strengthening my knowledge of the instrument and my abilities while also being really fun. I finally have hope of actually progressing.

Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced guitar player interested in learning more chords, notes, strumming patterns, finger picking styles, guitar theory or how to read tab? Do you just want to get better at that acoustic guitar you've had? Or learn a song for a special occasion?

Guitar was the first instrument I gravitated towards and learned 13 years ago, and now my guitar is a must have whether I'm home or on the road. I write a majority of my songs on it & love the unique style of bonding that everyone has in relation to their guitar.

Whether you are planning on leading with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your guitar goals! If you have any questions, please message me!

About Mikala

Want to learn how to play or sing your favorite song? Are you interested in learning how to write your own songs? Since the start of my teaching career 4 years ago, my lessons have expanded to include guitar, ukulele, bass, piano, drums, singing, and even songwriting! I'm eager to help you find

"You would be hard pressed to find a teacher as dedicated to his craft and teaching than Frankie. As a beginner he understood the challenges and frustrations of a newbie guitar player. He was always patient and quick to point out progress. He starts with the basics and builds on that knowledge so you know both theory and technique. Every week brings a new challenge to improve, expand and grow. All with Frankie’s wonderful guidance."

"A.H.M.A.D. is no doubt one of the most humble, approachable, and skillful guitar teacher you can find around. I have been studying with Ahmad for the past 3 and a half months. Ahmad was not the first music instructor I had. He is however, the best one so far by a large margin. Since the first lesson Ahmad has been extremely professional and organized in his teaching methods. He is able to quickly identify my strengths and weaknesses as a player, tailor his lessons to fit my capabilities, and help me improve in great effectiveness.

I took lessons once a week with Ahmad, and every week I could see noticeable improvements because Ahmad assigned me homework that was fun and challenging but never frustrating. But beyond this, not only have I become a more skilled guitar player, through Ahmad help I was also able to apply a lot of the theoretical music knowledge in other aspects. When I hear a piece of music, I find that I am slowly able to identify parts of the music, break it down into logical steps, and connect the music to the fretboard of the guitar.

I am a college student with a busy schedule both on and off work, but with Ahmad I was able to greatly improve nonetheless. Thank you Ahmad , I really look forward to coming back to the area and be your student again."
