About Samuel
I've been a performing singer-songwriter since 1993. My influences include Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Richie Havens. I've been teaching private lessons since 2011.

We'll begin with major scales. That way, your fingers will get to know the notes that comprise the chords you'll eventually be learning. Eventually, you'll be able to play whole songs with both major and minor chords and play solos over them (also based on the scales).

I'm a primarily self-taught musician. The bulk of my knowledge came from listening to and imitating delta blues artists such as Robert Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt. Though you will have learned to play campfire standards in fewer than eight lessons, the blues (particularly the form originating from the Mississippi Delta) is the foundation of ALL A

merican music. The better you understand and are able to play it, the more options you will have created for yourself musically. Once you've gained confidence playing the blues, I'll introduce informal jazz. For more information about my curriculum, you may review my published articles on TakeLesson's Teacher Blog. Please note that I'm available to teach both in-person and online: http://takelessons.com/blog/learning-guitar-without-sheet-music http://takelessons.com/blog/reasons-to-learn-guitar-scales http://takelessons.com/blog/beginner-guitars http://takelessons.com/blog/blues-chord-progressions http://takelessons.com/blog/best-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/guitar-barre-chords http://takelessons.com/blog/learning-guitar-styles http://takelessons.com/blog/expand-your-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/maximize-acoustic-guitar-lifespan http://takelessons.com/blog/are-you-ready-to-play-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/blues-guitar-exercise http://takelessons.com/blog/writing-a-song-on-guitar-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/writing-a-song-on-guitar-lyrics-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/guitar-tips-for-open-mic-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/preparing-for-bluegrass-guitar-lessons-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/2-simple-tricks-to-play-country-guitar-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-write-a-jazz-guitar-song-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/famous-guitar-players-who-are-not-virtuosos-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/5-jazz-guitar-licks-z01

About Chef Stevie
I graduated culinary school in 1996 and I have an AS in Culinary Arts and Restaurant management. My mother was a cook for Marriott and some of my fondest memories were spending time in that kitchen with her.

I loved culinary school, I love food and fresh ingredients. I grow my own veggies and herbs. I love creating great dishes and exploring the possibilities of simple ingredients.

I've taught community cooking demos, in home lessons and group demos. I've also worked as a private chef. Over my twenty years in this business; I've worked at a 4 Star Restaurant, as an Executive Chef at a major hotel chain as well as in a Molecular Gastronomy Kitchen. My skills are very diverse.

Emily's teaching exceeded all my expectations for the four lessons she gave me on healthy cooking. She arrived punctually, well-prepared, and brimming with cheerful, well-informed advice that allowed me to gain far more confidence with my efforts in the kitchen! I highly recommend her! I couldn't have been happier.

About Stefano
Ciao! I was born in Sardinia, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean sea. After completing my masters I obtained a PhD in Neuroscience. During the past 10 years I have traveled a lot and lived between New Mexico, Bordeaux (France), and Japan. These experiences allowed me to meet amazing people, understand and appreciate different cultures, and try new flavors, while sharing the regional specialties of my native island. I practiced formal teaching in the University setting and during workshops.

I love the outdoors, and of course preparing and enjoying a delicious meal!

About Brian
I love to cook but not only cook I love to cook from scratch I like to make as much as possible. I can cook various styles of food from vegan to a roasting pig over a fire. I know that the wrong diet can make people depressed and the right one can make people blissfully happy.

I started by cooking with my mother and learning dishes from my grandmothers. when old enough I started working in kitchens with very talented cooks and eventually chefs. I then started to not only run but design and build kitchens.

I then found out I had heart disease and stopped cooking for a while. But when I started cooking again it was with a renewed vigor for cooking and with a focus to get away from chemicals. I eat food and learning how to cook from scratch as much as possible I don't have the issues I used to have with food.

I had always wanted to learn how to make a pecan pie. Bryan came over to the house and taught me everything from the crust to the filling he knew it all including his secret ingredient. Thanks Bryan.
