Students who study with me can expect for their 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 technique, listening for internal hearing, composition dynamics, scales, fingerings, chords, and overall really how to get a great sound and feel from your guitar.

After 3 months of lessons together, students will have started learning several key elements to becoming an outstanding guitar player. They will have learned proper form and technique, warm-up/skill-building exercises, to read basic notation, and several scales. ...

I am so happy to have this opportunity to review Rodrigo Rodríguez. I have learned so much with him over the several years that I have been studying with him! He has totally transformed my guitar playing and has helped me to achieve my specific goals which are: To learn to play rhythmically with my right hand, to learn the fretboard better so that I can play more advanced songs, and to learn the repertoire of Spanish language music. He is so knowledgeable and talented! I have learned styles and songs from him from many different countries - Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Cuba, Colombia, and Mexico. In addition to all of that, he is a first rate human being who I feel fortunate to know! So, do yourself a favor and take lessons from him. He is a great teacher!

Rodrigo is a patient teacher who is a great musician. I have only had one lesson with him, but believe I will make good progress in learning the cajun accordion.

I am an experienced, educated, professional guitar player with a background in rock, blues, worship, jazz, classical, contemporary, country, and folk guitar. I have played/led for numerous worship teams, independent bands, and ensembles which are detailed in my "about me" section. I graduated Magna-Cum Laude from UTA with a bachelors degree in Music-Media with guitar as my primary performing instrument. I am the worship leader for Redemption Bible Church, a private guitar instructor, and an on-staff session guitarist and music producer.

Jordan is a nice guy, my son enjoys the lessons. So far seems like a good experience.
Julio
After many years of contemplating learning an instrument and making excuses like a busy schedule, I finally made the commitment. I started the first few weeks with online videos and made a little progress. I found Jordan through this sight. I was hoping to find someone who would help guide me on a steady path to improvement and growth. Jordan has been a perfect fit for me. He's patient (I'm not). He is encouraging (I'm pretty hard on myself). I am slowly getting better and wanting to stick with it. I think it's because he's clear and methodical in his teaching and he keeps you enthused with music that you like. While I have a long way to go, I practice every day and look forward to my weekly lessons with Jordan. I'm learning the guitar for my self and over the past three month Jordan has helped me stay engaged and excited about playing the guitar. I highly recommend Jordan and will continue to learn from him.

Gio has a great way of thinking outside the box and teaching my daughter each week. He uses creative methods to engage her and help her relate to the material and provides easy instructions for practicing during the week. He is patient and easy going which allows for her not to feel overwhelmed as she's just learning the guitar. I'm very happy with how he's teaching her!"

"I would highly recommend Matt Beal to anyone looking to take lessons

Easily the best music teacher I've had. He doesn't just solely focus on music and teaching what he's been taught. He makes an effort to get to know his students and teaches them based on their musical taste and preferences. Very versatile teacher/player who can teach (and play anything) from simple melodic riffs and solos to very technical and complex licks. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to get lessons. Music aside, just a genuinely good guy."

And Christopher always comes out after the lesson and gives me a little update which matters to me as a mom. I also appreciate how he doesn't just boot him out the door at the end of the lesson. AND my son is actually talking about music! Definitely learning more than just some chords. Good instructor who obviously loves and respects music. :)"

Playing and Teaching Guitar Lessons in Phoenix, AZ

By Henri B. - Phoenix Guitar Teacher

Do you want to learn how to play the guitar in Phoenix? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Private guitar lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher near you - whether in-home, studio, or online classes - accelerates progress, increases enjoyment, and improves every beginner's chances of becoming an expert player.

I started learning to play the guitar in high school simply because I wanted “to be cool.” Everyone I knew thought people who played the guitar were “cool,” so I taught myself how to play the song “Happy Birthday.” I was so excited about it that I continued learning simple songs. It was from that point forward that I fell in love and developed a passion for the instrument.

I love to play and teach guitar lessons in the greater Phoenix, AZ area. Phoenix has amazing bands with so many awesome musicians. I am part of a wonderful cluster of musicians that create a professional and supportive community. I am consistently being inspired and challenged to practice daily in order to keep my chops tight and my musical abilities strong.

There was a point when I felt stuck and frustrated, and that no progress was being made. So I found a great instructor who challenged and taught me to play new things that I could not play on my own before. It was at that time that I started making some major breakthroughs in my playing and feeling like “Wow! It happened again” every day.

The guitar is one of the “coolest” instruments for anyone to learn. And I believe that anyone can learn, at the very least, to play some fun and simple songs. With time, practice, and focus, perhaps you can become one of the best of your generation. Take guitar lessons in Phoenix and see for yourself!

Our guitar instructors work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. We guarantee a customized experience that will exceed your expectations. In fact, we are so committed to your happiness that we offer all new customers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on your first lesson.
