I teach you a REAL rock, pop or country song that YOU want to learn. I tailor each lesson to each individual students songs THEY Want to learn. I don't waste time on outdated guitar lesson books or "Mary Had a LIttle Lamb" or drilling you on scales that you don't need to know YET. Let's play a song together

Don't waste your time with the "Do it yourself" song books and "Mary Had a Little Lamb" etc. or useless scales you don't need to
know , yet............ FAST TRACK with me.

I have education in College Level Music Theory but keep it SIMPLE with written "Guitar Tab and Chord" Diagrams that anyone 11 to 99 can easily play a real song ASAP. Schedule now before your preferred time slot fills up. Act today and get your "guitar daydreams to reality".

About Tyler S.

Whether you want to learn to play your favorite songs, learn to play with a band, solo with anything, or adapt different styles of music into your own creation, I can help you get there. I've written and played solo classical guitar and played with several different bands. Maybe you can already play a lot, but don't understand what you're playing, I've got a degree in Music Theory to help you understand everything you don't know. If you want to learn the ins and outs of guitar, sign up and we'll get you started on the road to rock!

About Tyler
My name is Tyler. I have taken lessons on six different instruments with piano being the primary at ten years of lessons. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Music Theory/Composition from Southwest Minnesota State University and moved to the Phoenix area in January of 2016. I teach at a music school four afternoons/evenings a week and am looking to fill out my schedule with in-home private lessons. I've taught, tutored, and mentored students of various levels of skill and I very much enjoy teaching. I strongly believe in developing a student's love for music by allowing them to have a say in what they learn. I believe exposure is one of the best ways to develop a student's taste for music. The appreciation for many genres can open up doorways that would otherwise be inaccessible. I won't let a student choose the entirety of their cur
riculum, rather I'll work with them to develop a curriculum that is interesting to them, but also educational. I am definitely available to travel farther, as long as you're not in Chandler. Due to an agreement with my job, I can not accept students from Chandler.

My lessons are catered to the individual student. Typically half of the session is spent on technique/fretboard harmony and the other half is spent on learning music/songs. I have found it is best for younger students (12 and under) to learn from a book - for added structure).

Hello, my name is William. Thank you for taking the time to read about what I have to offer you. Are you interested in learning to play the music you love, using techniques that are actually healthy for your hands?

My instruction involves healthy, ergonomically sound, efficient, time-tested playing techniques combined with customized lesson plans, including original instructional materials, established texts, theoretical education, and material chosen by the student.

I offer training for acoustic as well as electric (steel and/or nylon string) instruments and provide instruction in popular music styles as well as formal classical.

Quality practice coaching will make a profound difference in your ability to learn and play music effectively, but it takes time. That's why I offer full hour lessons at a reasonable price ($49). Practice well and you will play well.

About me: I earned my Degree in Music Education from Shenandoah Conservatory where I studied Classical ...

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.

I am 48 years old and started taken lessons from William a couple months ago. William is very patient and thorough and have learned more in those few months then I have in all the years I have been trying to teach myself. I would highly recommend William if you are looking for a guitar instructor no matter your background or specific music style interest.

· Classical Guitar · In studio
I've been studying classical guitar with William (at his location) for almost 3 months now. Initially, he helped me find an instrument that would meet my needs and taught me how to care for it. I'd call him a connoisseur of classical acoustic guitars! He know how they should sound and has valuable guidance to provide for beginning guitarists like me who may not be as able to see or hear the differences. I'm glad I got his advice before making a commitment / investment on a particular instrument.

I am 46 and have a musical background (I already play both piano and trombone). William has very effectively adapted his teaching to fit with the skills I already have. In some cases that means speeding up and in other cases going back to basics to make sure I have the fundamentals down.

His knowledge of music and musical instruments enables him to very effectively describe to experienced musicians how the guitar is different from what they are used to and what they'll need to pay attention to.

William has been very focused on the details of correct technique, preferring to slow down and work specific things rather than moving on or cutting corners for the sake of getting through the method materials. If you want to learn how to play completely, correctly, efficiently and without hurting yourself William is your teacher.

One of the things I appreciate the most is William's patience. He's a stickler for correct technique so he doesn't let errors slide, but he corrects in a way that is both helpful and encouraging. There's no bit of guidance that he's given me that, when I put it into practice, doesn't dramatically help my progress. I've learned in a very short time to really listen to him. He knows what he's talking about.

I can wholeheartedly recommend William to anyone wanting to learn to play guitar. He's one of the best music instructors I've ever had!

I'm happy to answer anyone's questions on my experiences with William or this review.

What makes my guitar lessons unique is that I include a calm environment when teaching. I teach different ways of playing chords as to show the student which sound they would prefer when playing a song or a rhythm the made up from the chords they know.

About Jose
I am a local guitarist in my neighborhood that has been teaching kids at my high school for about a year now. Everyone knows how I play my guitar and how well I'm able to play it.

When I teach people how to play the guitar, I hope that it'll have a long lasting effect on the student so that maybe one day they can pass it on to someone else.
