Learning The Guitar in Gilbert

By Karen R. – Mesa Guitar Teacher

Do you enjoy listening to guitar music? Do you aspire to take guitar lessons in Gilbert to learn one of the most versatile and fun musical instruments? The great news for the Gilbert guitar student is that there are so many opportunities to hear guitarists of all types and levels in the Phoenix area who will inspire you and ignite your passion to start and stay on your incredible journey with the guitar! Let me tell you more.

The greater Phoenix metropolitan area is a hub of musical activities and venues, and it has many opportunities to watch, hear, and learn from amazing guitarists every week while taking guitar lessons in Gilbert. The Phoenix area has an extensive array of restaurants, coffee shops, and concert halls where guitarists of all levels perform all types of genres, including rock, bluegrass, country, classical, and spiritual (many are listed in the local paper, the Arizona Republic). Some larger music halls in the area include Celebrity Theatre, Gammage Auditorium, Higley Center for the Performing Arts, Talking Stick Resort, Desert Botanical Garden, and The Rhythm Room. These venues host many live local and international guitarists throughout the year.

Downtown Gilbert has musical artists performing every Thursday night (except for the summer) for free under the water tower in a series called “Under The Tower.” I also have attended and love the free 2nd Friday Night Out series in downtown Mesa (so close to Gilbert), where one can hear and see live music, walk around, visit local merchants, and check out other artist events. Smaller venues would be The Nash, Chicks With Picks (female guitarists), local coffee shops such as SoZo, and churches who host artists and musical groups.

The Gilbert area also has many places that host open mic nights where guitarists and other musicians of all levels can go to perform or cheer others on. These places include SoZo Coffeehouse, Inside the Bungalow, Lo Fi Coffee, Cup O’ Karma, and Yucca Tap Room, just to name a few. An open night mic at one of these venues is a great opportunity for anyone to gain experience performing in front of others and showcasing their talents. There is usually a supportive and friendly crowd that gathers there. I encourage my students to use as many opportunities as they can to perform in front of others, because the more they do, the more comfortable and confident they will be.

Additionally, one of the best places for guitar enthusiasts to learn about the origin and evolution of the guitar is the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM). I have checked them out, and they have many events with guest guitarists. They also have rooms with collections of guitars in them. I do encourage my students to know and understand music history and how their instruments originated and evolved. Visiting this museum is another great way to inspire and encourage the guitar enthusiast.

Finally, as a long-time music teacher and lifetime musician, I recommend five things to musicians and beginner students - all beginning with the letter ‘P’:

1) Participate in musical events and listen to music to inspire you and ignite your passion for music and your instrument. You can learn how other guitarists use technique to add meaning and flair to their songs and how they use stage presence to reach the crowd. This is how I have personally grown and been inspired as a musician. 2) Practice as a way to progress on your instrument, but not to be perfect. 3) Persevere until you reach your musical goals. 4) Be patient with yourself, knowing that your musical journey is a process of daily growth and development. 5) Be playful with music, and have fun.

I wish you the best during your guitar lessons in Gilbert!

Learn basic skills such as hand positioning, chords, scales, fun songs at your level and learn to enjoy all the guitar has to offer.

About Henri
Henri is an experienced, focused teacher and musician who really enjoys seeing students achieve their goals and desires musically. Henri has studied privately with former Berklee Graduate Al Pahanish Jr (Powerman 5000), and former Capitol Records recording artist Morrison Moon. He is a goal-oriented individual with a versatile background and a relaxed, "let's have fun while we learn" attitude. Henri believes music should always be fun and inspiring for everyone, no matter what skill level. FUN is always the focus, because if you are not having fun, why are you doing it? 

Henri also has years of experience touring both nationally and internationally with several award-winning Arizona-based performing groups, (Okilly Dokilly, Dry River Yacht Club,The Hourglass Cats, Clint Stevens, Street Corps Drums) performing shows in 46 of the US Stat
es, as well as international festival performances in Canada, Norway, and Mexico. His past teaching and performing experiences have really helped shaped the musician he is today.

Aside from preforming and private lessons, he is the founder of his preschool program Wee Rock Music, serves as adjunct faculty at Mesa Community College, and is the Entertainment Coordinator for Tempe Festival of The Arts. As a writer, his work has been published in Phoenix New Times and Modern Drummer, and his new children's drum book, Wee Beats, Wee Eats, is set for release in 2018. And also is an accomplished DJ.

Benard also co-scored the 2012 feature-length documentary, The Immigration Paradox, with Tobie Milford. Active in the music industry for more than 15 years, Henri is experienced in production, artist management, booking, merchandising, copyright, graphic design, promotions, licensing, teaching, publishing, writing, and live and studio performances.

A life-long learner, Henri is always finding new experiences and new ways to connect with his students, as learning comes just as much from the student as it does the teacher. You can always find him around "the music." 

Henri is endorsed by TJS Custom Drums.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students who study with me can expect for their guitar, drum kit, percussion, or piano lessons to be top-quality, personalized, and above all, extremely fun sessions that will cater to the students musical backgrounds, interests, and needs. I create extremely organized and specifically focused lessons so that students feel comfortable, not pressured, while learning their craft. The lessons I teach are a combination of developmental sight reading music, learning student chosen songs (depending on ability), inspiring and encouraging creative abilities, warm-up and strengthening exercises, proper techniques, listening for internal hearing, composition dynamics, chords, finger-picking (guitar only) and rudiments (drum kit only).

After 3 months of lessons together, students will have started learning several key elements to becoming an outstanding musician. They will have learned proper form and technique, warm-up/skill-building exercises, to read basic notation, and basic rhythms/rudiments. Guitar/Piano students will be able to play at least one song utilizing both melody and chords. For drum kit/percussion, students should have no problem reading basic drum beats and being able to play through a simple song. With proper, steady practice, most students will achieve much more. I also focus on creative thinking, professionalism, and instrument tuning. Finally, the students will have started to develop a solid level of discipline that is required of any aspiring human being! Remember, "practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent."

*** Studio Equipment ***
Electronic Drums, Acoustic and Electric Guitars, Casio CTK-800, LP Assorted Percussions, Protools LE, Logic Pro, Korg Electribe, Reason 3.0, Ion Electronic Drum Set, Chord Charts

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide drum sticks, guitar, keyboards, percussion instruments, and all developmental material for students to retain and practice.

I expect my students to be providing the necessary musical equipment as well (guitars, drum kits, percussion instruments, piano/keyboard) for private lessons in home. If they do not have these in the home to practice with, the lessons are much less effective for your student.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in the following styles of playing:

Rock, Hip - Hop, All Latin, Jazz, Funk, Blues, R and B, Gospel, and Dance. I also have a very good feel for World Music as well. I have a very free-spirit for playing, so I often mesh the above stated styles into a more progressive style of playing. I believe that you must be feeling what you are playing.

I also specialize in beat programming/sequencing, recording, organizing song-writing/song-structure, musical score, live performance, and professional music marketing. I am able to show you how to use programs such as Reason, Logic Pro, Protools LE, and Adobe programs to take your creative abilities to the next level.

I believe that these days, it is imperative for musicians to have four major components in their professional arsenal: 1) Discipline and chops on your instruments (including reading music notation); 2) Know how to successfully market yourself and your music; 3) Know how to properly develop a learning ear to record/produce your songs/tracks as well as for others; and 4) Understand and effectively utilize music production programs.

I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your musical desires. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a music-filled day.

Through my work with the M Gray Music Academy (Macy Gray) and my tenure at the Hollywood School of Rock as teacher and musical director, I have developed successful programs for students ranging in age from 5 years old and beyond. I have mentored numerous young musical groups in beneficial rehearsal techniques, live performance and basically all the things you need to know about being in a band that wants to be great!

As we explore the exciting world of music, guitars, drums and percussion, we will cover all aspects of music theory, music history and ear training through video, audio and text examples. For beginner guitar 101 students, we will start with basic chord shapes, scales and common rock and blues forms. I also like to incorporate songs that students want to learn so it's not just a bunch of boring exercises.

Course topics for guitar 101 (beginner to intermediate) include:
Scales, modes, chord shapes and positions, rock and blues forms, arpeggios and learning you ...

We're gonna HAVE FUN! Your lessons will be customized to your needs and what you want to do with your ability to play guitar. I can teach you either electric or acoustic guitar. I can prepare you for any genre as I include fundamentals (for example, scales and arpeggios) in your practice. I use Mel Bay's Modern Guitar Method books for reference and/or lesson work. I can help you learn how to play with a pick, how to finger-pick, how to sing and play simultaneously, and even how to sightread.

Whether you've just started out or you want to take that next step to becoming a better guitarist, I'm here to help!

About Andrew
My name is Andrew, and I've been a musician nearly my entire life. I have a Bachelor's degree in classical guitar performance from Arizona State University, but my background goes far beyond classical music. My performance experiences range from playing violin in my high school symphony orchestra to playing lead guitar in a Santana cover band, and just about everything in between! As a teacher, you can expect me to be positive and encouraging. My biggest goal is to inspire you and help you discover a similar passion for music as I've developed over the years.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I do expect students to practice consistently, I always do my best to tailor the lesson plans to their wants as well as their needs so practice is both fun and challenging. For students pursuing classical music, I'll typically start them in a book an
d reading sheet music, but for just about anything else, the lesson plans will be more customized to the taste of my students and will not require music reading ability in most cases. After the first few months, my students can expect to have a solid understanding of music, their instrument, and what steps to take to reach their long term goals.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel with my own guitar and bass guitar, but for piano and drum lessons, the student will need their own instrument and a quiet area to get the most from the lessons.

*** Specialties ***
While I have a degree in classical guitar, I have several years of experience with blues and classic rock, specifically on the electric guitar and drums. Aside from those, I enjoy all genres of music and have plenty of musical experience outside of the aforementioned genres.

I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I earned B.A. earned from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley Colorado where I was a double major in classical guitar and double bass. In my senior year I was the recipient of the Annual Concerto Contest where I performed the "Concerto in A Major" on double bass with the University orchestra for the spring concert. I have played in both professional and semi-professional orchestras in Colorado and Arizona. I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument.

Victor is a great instructor and a great person. He is wonderful with my young son, who was an absolute beginner when he started lesson with Victor at age 8. My son has a learning disability that makes it harder for him to read music and process instructions. Victor worked with all of that with patience and respect. Now my son can play beautiful songs and perform in front of others. I believe that learning music has also helped my son become better at reading, math, and thinking! Most of all, he feels successful about his guitar skills, which adds to his confidence. I cannot thank Victor enough!

About William
I am a professional guitar instructor. I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and graduated with High Honors. My formal training includes classical guitar performance, jazz guitar and improvisation, music theory and arranging, psychology, piano, violin, recording, and much more.

With over 25 years of teaching experience and well over 30 years of experience playing music, I have enjoyed working with students as well as other musicians with broadly diverse backgrounds. I have performed solo, played in rock bands, blues and jazz combos, duos, trios, and classical guitar quartets as well as large guitar ensembles.

Students currently studying with me include young through older adult and retirement age students with performance goals ranging from the private, personal enjoyment of playing music, to professional and semi-profess
ional aspirations.

I strive to provide a friendly, comfortable learning environment my students can thrive in. I won't pressure you to play in recitals in order to increase my studio size, but I will greatly encourage you to play an active role in customizing your own individual curriculum. As soon as you have the skills to do so, you should be learning to play the music you love.

Regardless of what your musical goals are, I would love to help you learn the skills you need to reach them. Thank you so much for your time.

Very patient and was always willing to help me towards becoming the guitar player I am today. I would not be who I am today without him guiding me to be a great guitar player. Thank you.

Hi, my name is Gulli :)

I'm a 26 years old guitarist and composer from Iceland! I finished my Master's degree in guitar from Yale two months ago and just moved to Tempe with my partner this month.

Since 2014, I have worked as a private guitar teacher, providing guitar lessons to students of all ages and abilities. I specialize in teaching classical, acoustic, fingerstyle, and electric guitar but I am open to any style you want to focus on!

If you are new to guitar playing I will get you started with the correct technique! I get so many students who've had bad teachers that taught them incorrectly giving the students bad tension problems and awkward hands. It can be difficult to change those bad habits but with me you can be sure you will be going the right direction from the get go :)

I love all sort of music and am open to all styles! If you are interested in composing your own music I can give you compositional lessons to help make your songs even greater!

Sincerely, Gulli ...
