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 I don't waste time on outdated guitar lesson books or "Mary Had a LIttle Lamb" or drilling you on scales that you don't need to know YET.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

About Daniel

I am a 30+ clean cut, 100% non smoking guitarist who has sold 108,000 + paid downloads/CDs/and recordings along with performing 1200+ paid live performances over the last 15+ years of my original music. I also happen to teach guitar lessons. I have weekly time slots available to teach Guitar Lessons/absolute beginners-intermediate-advanced.

I do things a bit different than your "average" guitar teacher. I teach YOU a real song on your introductory very first lesson. I allow you to choose an easy rock, pop, country or folk song that YOU WANT TO LEARN on 1st lesson so that YOU ARE MOTIVATED TO PRACTICE! :)

Don't waste your time with the "Do it yourself" song books and "Mary Had a Littl
e 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.

Enjoy music lessons in a comfortable in home setting. My lessons focus on the individual. Everyone is unique and needs different ways of being taught. I have a degree in music and I have been teaching for 16 years. All ages are welcome. All levels of experience are welcome. I love teaching and I make learning music fun and you will feel accomplished in whatever you wish to learn.

About Ben
Music lessons at my studio will always be fun and rewarding. I teach at my home where my wife and mother live as well. My music room is directly off of the entry way door, so it's easy access. Parents are always welcome to be present for all of my lessons and I also have a sitting area just outside of the music room door. So, if your little children need to be occupied while their older siblings take lessons, you will be taken care of.

I have been teaching music lessons for 16 years. I majored in Music in college and my primary instrument was voice. As a major in voice I was required to learn a variety of songs and also a variety of different genres of music. As a vocalist I learned how to sing and perform opera, jazz, gospel and blues. As a musician I have performed country, folk, rock, pop, and folk rock. I have experience performing
in operas, musicals, choirs, praise and worship. I also write and compose music and I also teach piano and guitar. My teaching style is very relaxing, but also to the point. I will not waist your time or money on useless information or exercises that will not help you to become a better musician. As a music student you will make many mistakes, but that is not a bad thing. Everything takes time to learn and learning music is no different.

I have never had to make myself stay patient with any student. Patience is what it takes to become the best musician you can be. I will always give 100% of my ability to help you achieve your goals.

Are you interested in learning to play the music you love, using techniques that are actually healthy for your hands? My instruction promotes efficient, ergonomically sound, time-tested playing techniques.

Do you want to play well? Then you need to learn to practice well. 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.

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 ($55 per hour). 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.

Three lesson in an William has exceeded my expectations.

William is a kind talented person and has not only been extremely patience but his teaching method is making sure I understand what I have to do in order to be successful at learning the guitar.

He has been extremely helpful in providing me with great options in selecting a guitar. Not only did he make great suggestions on what I should purchase but made sure the instrument was in top form by giving it the once over after I made the purchase. William's ability to provide helpful information and the his willingness to share his expertise has gone above an beyond my expectations.

I am looking forward to my future lessons and learning the correct way to learn how to play the guitar.

Thanks William!

I liked how Mr. Geiswite taught me a technique on something was really struggling to get through. He not only taught me the scale, but what a tonic was and helped me identify the tonics in the scale.

My lessons have a strong basis on fundamentals and theory of music, that way all of my students have the capability to learn any musical style. Each lesson is tailored to the skill level of the student, and what music they are most interested in learning. Guitar students will learn theory scales, finger techniques, and be introduced to many types of music. I also teach how to care for your instrument, and encourage students to find opportunities to perform in the community.

I graduated from ASU in 2017 with a masters degree in Clarinet Performance, and completed my undergraduate degree in Performance at Otterbein University in 2015. I have at least ten years experience performing on each of the instruments I am qualified to teach.

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 ...
