If you are ready to start taking your guitar skills SERIOUSLY then stop wasting time and money on teachers who don't fully understand the instrument or subject matter themselves. My name is Russ and I have been playing guitar professionally for 20 years and teaching music and producing records for over 15. I have a Platinum #1 Billboard charting record under my belt, worked with artists such as Mac Miller, Sean Kingston, Red Velvet, Lifehouse and more; and have composed music to 100s of your favorite TV shows! Feel free to browse my official website for a full list of credits. Want to learn to shred guitar? Produce beats? Write your own songs? Dive into theory? Record yourself? This page is the one stop shop. Feel free to reach out with any requests or questions!

Obviously also depending on your specific goals and experience, besides learning your favorite songs, we'll discuss techniques, music theory and creating music yourself (improvisation and songwriting). I can also provide helpful advice on guitar related aspects like sound/equipment, instrument setup /maintenance and recording.

With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best (for example, I've found that music theory makes things click faster for some people and saps all the enjoyment out of learning an instrument for others). I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Lee Q.

4.9(73)
Lee teaches acoustic guitar using a holistic and minimalist musical approach — you only learn what you really need to know. Learn how to play songs and have fun while you increase your guitar skills. Students can learn on a steel-string acoustic guitar, or a nylon string (classical) guitar. No note-reading is required to learn chord progressions, song structure, and effective strumming and picking patterns for folk, blues and rock acoustic guitar. Lee offers her own visual materials and chord grids, popular acoustic songs, and select acoustic guitar method books. She's also a Beatles expert and can take you from "Twist and Shout" to "Blackbird". Lee has performed and recorded as a singer-songwriter-guitarist since 2001, including hundreds of performances in the New Orleans area, ten years of performances at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and appearances at acoustic venues across the USA. • Award-winning performing singer-songwriter • Bachelor of Music Education from Loyola University, New Orleans (Instrumental Music) • Master of Music from Belmont University, Nashville (Instrumental Pedagogy) • Guitar Instructor for community college, high school and middle school  • "Acoustic Intensive" instructor in acoustic guitar, music theory and songwriting for the National Guitar Workshop in New Orleans, Austin, Chicago, and Nashville

I have been teaching for 9 years. I am very patient, kind and will nurture your talent. My curriculum will be different depending on the style of music you want to be taught, but music history, references, and listening material are to be expected. I am just a guide who is helping you on your journey, where you wish to go I will do my best to show you the way. Thx!:)
