6, 7, or 8 string, anything and everything guitar is my specialty. Electric or acoustic welcome. We will cover the parts of the instrument and why everything is so darn important (like how to stay in tune!). We can perfect your guitar's signal flow, pedals, and amplifier settings, too!

All kinds of styles from simple note picking and open chords to pop/rock/punk/metal/blues/jazz and more.

Want to learn basic rhythm? lead? fast strumming? how about making those big chords without making your hands hurt? I can help! You'll be jamming along with your favorite songs and with friends in no time.

I typically will teach and write guitar using tablature instead of standard sheet music. These are a simple set of lines and numbers that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.

Also I can show you how to play with a capo or slide, fingerstyle or pick. If you want to learn grunge or sing deep, I can show you how to play in ...

Nathan is an excellent teacher. He is very clear in his explanations and helped me to better understand guitar chords, strumming patterns and fingering. He gave me several exercises to work on in the coming weeks. I am looking forward to my next class.

Private Guitar Teacher

Welcome to the world of guitar! I look forward to guiding you through your new musical journey! For my guitar lessons, we will study the chords and techniques of the instrument. My standard guitar courses are perfect for the absolute beginner who wants guidance on what path to take. We will cover chords, strumming, how to put songs or pieces together, fingerpicking, and how to use our hands in the most effective ways possible to get the results we want! This course is also the perfect place to start if you are an absolute beginner, but are interested in classical/flamenco playing, as this will cover the basics of music and handling the instrument. Let's start your journey together!

About Zachary

Hello there! I am currently a junior in college studying nursing but also pursuing classical and Flamenco guitar during my spare time. Please do not be discouraged by me being only 21 years old; I may be young, but I am experienced. I went to a well known performing arts high school in Florida wher

Amazing teacher of ukulele! He is experienced in both ukulele and guitar so his knowledge of both is really helping me learn quickly. He always gives feedback, instruction and homework. I really appreciate his style of teaching that he is patient, respectful, organized, knowledge and makes everything seem fun and easy. He has his own book for Flamenco Guitar which he sent me free of charge. Also, he responds quickly to any questions or help on days that I do not have a lesson scheduled. He goes above and beyond. If you need a skilled ukulele or guitar teacher then choose Zach today!
Simon Hernandez
I took a chance with Zach and it may easily be one of the best decisions I've made in my musical journey. I have already taken several guitar classes in the past, as well as being self-taught, so I have a bit of experience with taking guitar classes. He adapts his lesson to whatever skill-level you are at, low or high, he will meet you there and teach you how to get to the next level. I learned flamenco techniques and rhythms I never thought I could do. Zach seriously set the bar high for a guitar class. It made me realize how important it is to have a teacher who genuinely cares about your progress and will go above and beyond to teach you anything you're struggling with. His patience and genuine helpful spirit were things I didn't know would be such important factors to inspire and stir up more passion for guitar. Zach is very knowledgeable, wonderfully communicative and a fantastic teacher. Highly, Highly, Recommending him.

I've been a writing, recording, performing and touring artist for 21 years now. I play in a national band and also do singer/songwriter solo work.
All of it came from learning how to play the guitar. I firmly believe that anybody can learn this, if they want to put in the work and effort. I guess the saying is: ''you don't work music, you play it, but it takes work to learn to play it''. Anyways, I've gathered a lot of experience over the years and still learning everyday. I really enjoy the teaching aspect of music and to make those musical connections with people. I think Keith Richards said it best when asked about the best part of being a musician,: ''you pass it on''. I will stand by that. Looking forward to meeting you!

I've been learning from Lars for the past 6 years, and it has been a great time. He knows what he is doing, and does anything to make sure that the student gets the best instruction.
Everett M.
Hi i'm Everett and i'm 16, I've been working with Lars for a few years now, He' been helping me write and make my own songs, even taking me to a professional recording studio to have the songs recorded. He's very good at communicating with me and helping me become my own guitar player and having taught me from not knowing a single thing, To being able to play with confidence. I would highly recommend him!

Online Guitar Teacher

I am a recent Berklee College of Music graduate living in Chicago. At Berklee, I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional, blues, country, rock, and metal.
Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance. Here in Chicago, I am currently playing with various bands and writing my own music. My teaching style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. I envision teaching much like my teachings at Berklee where once my lesson was finished, I only wanted to go home and learn more. If you want to learn multiple styles from someone who is truly passionate about the instrument, I'm your guy!

"I have been playing guitar for about 20 years, but have been mostly self-taught, and was looking for an instructor who could help me correct poor technique as well as help give some more focus to my learning. William has helped me immensely by teaching and reinforcing in me proper habits of playing, the lack of which have long held my playing back. He has also given me concrete goals to work on on a weekly basis to help me continue growing."

"My first month of taking lessons with Brandon has been great!! He's a very well-educated instructor, and has pushed my knowledge and skills in several areas. He took his time to assess my skill, and created lessons that challenge me. He's introduced me to several genres already that I wouldn't have normally looked at before. He also does a fantastic job of teaching me the theory behind what I'm playing. Couldn't be more pleased with the experience, and look forward to taking many more lessons with Brandon."

"I'm a mid 40's guy who's wanted to play guitar since I was a kid. After a failed attempt in my teens, I hadn't revisited it (unless air-guitar counts) until this year. Fortunately for me, through Take Lessons, I found Rick. He is so very patient, friendly and flexible. The one thing I most enjoy about our lessons is that it's like visiting with a friend for an hour each week - whether we talk about music theory, new guitars or just about our lives, he always is engaged and accessible.

I can't say enough about Rick, he is a very knowledgeable musician, he genuinely cares that you reach your goal and is a really, really pleasant person. If your dream is just to play some of your favorite songs, or to go on to be a professional musician - Rick is definitely who I would recommend."

"Puts a fun spin on learning!

My daughter is 10 and has been taking lessons with Brandon for about 3 months now. She has learned a lot and is starting to feel more comfortable with the guitar. She was starting from a total beginner, so Brandon has also been teaching her the basics of music theory.
He is always in a good mood and has fun with the lesson, but also does a good job of keeping the focus on learning. He has a plan for what she needs to learn next, but he allows the student to make the choices and set the direction. He is patient about certain aspects being more difficult to learn.
It think Brandon could teach anyone to play guitar, since he really lets the student set the tone, but his demeanor is great for kids. My daughter looks up to him and knows that he is cool, which helps her remember that learning the guitar is cool.
I appreciate that he isn't an over/under communicator and that he is always there and on time for the lesson. He is professional, but not overly strict or "all-business."
Thanks Brandon!"

5 Guitar Gadgets That Will Change Your Life

When you're a beginner learning the guitar, does brand name matter?  For the basics, an inexpensive (but still quality!) instrument is completely fine, and can offer you a great starting point. Ultimately, the difference between a $100 guitar and a more expensive guitar can be subjective - it all comes down to what you prefer and what your end goals are. On the other hand, there are some added accessories that can make a huge impact on your playing, no matter how much you shelled out for you …
