Jason L.

Denton, TX

About Jason

I love playing the guitar. I think you will too when you see the results that come from dedication and motivation. Everyone who plays the guitar is a student of the instrument. The greatest players in the world are still learning. If you are a beginner or an advanced player there is always room for improvement. No matter your skill level, I can help you grow in knowledge and technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach you in the styles of country, blues, folk, rock, pop, and jazz. Music is organized sound. I will teach you how music works and how to apply that knowledge to the g
uitar. Trust me, music theory is NOT complicated. You do not have to read music to understand music theory. Within a few months if you dedicate plenty of time and effort to the lesson materials you will see and hear the results. Learning the guitar is fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room setup for lessons. Parents can sit on lessons, and waiting area available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Learning materials.

Student should own a guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Country, blues, folk, rock and jazz. I specialize in teaching how the guitar works with the 5 major and minor chord shapes in the first position, and how they can be moved up the neck with index finger barring. How each shape has a corresponding pentatonic and major scale or mode shape that corresponds with it.

Lessons have been underway for only a short time. Notwithstanding, Jason's teaching has been relevant, responsive to the student's needs and designed to motivate the student. He himself is quite knowledgeable of the Guitar and music theory, and a fine guitarist from what is observed in the short time we have been working together. I am pleased with this instructor and am looking forward to working with him in the weeks to come.

We've had Jason teach our daughter guitar for a few months now and we've seen a lot of progress in her skills. She really enjoys playing and learning new things from Jason. He's an excellent teacher. He is always prepared and on time.

Jonathan M.

Argyle, TX

About Jonathan

Music is what I breathe every day of my life! I grew up in Oklahoma in an average-sized city. Starting in 1st grade I pursued taking private piano lessons. Unlike most kids, I continued classical piano study throughout middle school and high school. In 2nd grade, the year after starting piano lessons, I pursued taking private trumpet lessons with the trumpet professor at the university in my city. Around age 9 I started private drum-set lessons, and age 14 picked up the acoustic guitar later followed by electric guitar. I just wanted to play ALL the instruments. After my 2nd year of high schoo
l, I decided to pursue independent study with an online accredited school, mainly for the reason of greater personal music study through the university. My trumpet professor asked if I’d like to participate in the university jazz ensemble on a weekly basis while I was still in high school. Studying independently allowed me to attend rehearsals and other college music classes that would later count as concurrent hours towards my college degree plan. Not having to "technically" GO to school, I got super involved with my church's worship teams, filling positions of drummer, acoustic guitarist, electric guitarist, and pianist for various teams.

I applied for the University of Oklahoma as a trumpet performance major in the Fall of 2010, and after receiving a very great scholarship studied there for 3 years. Upon entering my fourth year of my undergrad at OU, I decided to transfer to the University of North Texas in pursuit of the prestigious jazz lab bands. Fall 2013 was my first semester at UNT and I graduated with a classical music performance bachelor's degree in December 2014.

Studying music at a higher level, especially with such great professors that OU and UNT have to offer, has opened my mind to all the incredible ways music can be created, received, enjoyed, performed, and flirted with. These years of study starting all the way back to when I was 7 year old have not only honed my skills, techniques, and musicality, but also strengthened my passion, excited my spirits, and caused me to want to share music and its joys to every human being alive. I want to instill in every student I teach that music is a beautiful art that doesn't have to be scary or tedious, but allows the individual to express their thoughts and feelings in ways that are safe, fun, and extremely productive! I will demonstrate to students how music can be and is loads of fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
Music, but specifically the trumpet, should be in no way frustrating or tedious. My teaching style is a style that is beneficial to all students, regardless of age. I believe it is crucial for teachers to practice patience with students, as music is a challenge to master. The teaching environment is very easy-going, fun, creative, yet progressive. I base teaching techniques, materials, and also style on the personality and talent of that particular student, although ALL students are treated with positive attitudes and an understanding manner. I see exactly what students need to hear/do in order to progress at an exponential rate. I make lessons fun for them. I see how students respond to what’s happening and how they’re getting the material, and I focus in on a certain method that guarantees they get and understand my teachings. Whether you’re looking to enjoy the trumpet as just a hobby or plan to intently study and play professionally in the future, I am confident I can get you to your goal! Do you have a specific goal in mind? Tell me! I’d love to help you out!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own B-flat horn, mouthpiece, and valve oil. Books are to be purchased upon request.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all-around trumpet skills: improvement of sound production and tone, increased technical skill (broader range, cleaner tonguing, easier flexibility, fluency, agility), sight-readability and readability, musicality and phrasing techniques, jazz, classical, pop, orchestral, and GREAT tunes!

Music Theory
Exceptional teacher

I am an older non-musician in a household full of multi-talented musicians. I finally decided that I needed to at least receive some education in music performance and music theory just to keep up with my family. Jonathan has been the perfect instuctor for that! Not only has he explained the concepts of music theory in a logical and easy to understand way - he has made it challenging and exciting! I have begun trumpet lessons and I am progressing far faster than I thought possible. What a great instructor! I no longer consider myself a "non-musician."

Trumpet
Outstanding

I'm a trumpet beginner. I've tried taking lessons before but really went nowhere and it was a horrible experience. Jonathan has been very patient as he has moved me quickly and effectively through the basics of trumpet to where I now have a sense of pride in what I can do! I almost didn't give him a try but his experience and friendly picture convinced me to try it again. I'm so glad I did! I can't recommend this instructor more highly!

Great experience as a beginner

Jonathan is doing a great job teaching me from no knowledge at all. He's given me great exercises to increase my playing ability and is very patient when I don't understand or can't figure out how to play the notes.

About Michael

Along with being a songwriter, performer, and recording artist, I have over 30 years of teaching electric and acoustic guitar in all styles and levels, specializing in rock. We can focus on technique, reading music in standard or tablature, music theory, improvisation, or simply learning your favorite songs. The bottom line is making sure you meet your musical goals!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always h
ave an amp in my teaching studio (although it's not mandatory that you play through it), and extra guitars if you're not able to bring yours. I can also play CDs or mp3s on the spot to learn your favorite songs, and I have complete and accurate tablature to thousands of songs, all alphabetized!

*** Specialties ***
I excel in teaching technique - specifically alternate picking for speed and sweep picking for arpeggios - I can definitely help you reach your maximum potential on these techniques, among others. I also excel in the repertoire of acoustic and electric rock songs that I can teach you. I am patient as well. We can progress at your level.

I met Michael at a gig and was blown away by all the original material he wrote and played on guitar. In a couple of years of lessons I learned more technique and and music theory than I did after 20 years on my own. Michael is a world class player/composer and a very patient teacher. You can't find any better.

Michael isn't just a great teacher and amazing guitarist, but he's a crazy good composer as well, which is a skill that can be difficult to find among many music instructors these days. If you're looking to get started from scratch or are a more experienced guitarist looking to break into that next level of playing, Michael would be a great choice as he's the real deal for sure. Great guy too!

About Marco

I started playing guitar seriously at age 12, and I was heavily influenced by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Chet Atkins and Wes Montgomery. After being in several bands in highschool and attending the North East School of the Arts, I found that I could study music in college, so I started pursuing my Music Education Degree at SAC and am in the process of applying at UNT. I specialize in guitar technique, reading and music theory.

Seth H.

Flower Mound, TX

About Seth

I have been performing and teaching for over 10 years. I consider myself a teaching artist, in the fact that teaching is an art as much as the music itself is. Every student is unique and wants to achieve something different, my goal is to help them achieve their goals in the most fun and artistic way possible.

MY PROMISE TO YOU
Finding a good music teacher can sometimes be a difficult process, so I hope to make this as easy as possible, if you choose to use me as a teacher I will
-Always be prepared for lessons
-Always give 100% effort
-Always be available to answer any questions
-
Always do my best to ensure your needs as a student are fulfilled
When I first took guitar lessons, I looked forward to them all week, they were my favorite part of the week. I want my lessons to be that special and important for my students as well, that's why I make that promise.

Some of the artists I have performed with include Kristen Kelly, The Modern Day Drifters, Branded the Duo, and Candace Myers. I have been fortunate to open for acts such as The Randy Rogers Band, Cory Morrow, Honeybrowne, John Legend, and numerous others.

I earned my Associates in Commercial Music Performance at McLennan Community College. MCC offers an intensive music program where I was able to study with Western Swing legend, bassist Dick Gimble, and the incredible Jazz guitarists Clark Nauert and Kenny Frazier. I later attended the University of Texas at Arlington majoring in Jazz Studies. While at UTA I was part of the UTA Jazz Orchestra, the premier big band of UTA. I was able to study with guitar masters Billy Robertson and Sam Walker.

If you have any questions about lessons, please ask!
