Whether you want to play like Stevie Ray Vaughn or rock some blues slide guitar like Derek Trucks. It's all about right hand technique and playing in tune. Open tuning or standard it is your choice on what your style maybe.

About Scott
Scott has been teaching music for over 25 years. His method has evolved over time to meet the demands of changing musical styles and he has developed plenty of material to help students achieve their musical goals. His ambitions for each student are simple- he wants them to enjoy music and experience a sense of accomplishment from the learning process. In short, Scott works to make lessons fun and educational! Most beginning pupils will learn to play a song in the first couple of lessons. Handouts and music tracks are used to enhance the lessons.

Everyone is unique in how and what they want to learn. Scott uses positive encouragement to teach what is needed for the next step with the instrument. Students learn technique for dexterity, songs for the ear and theory so they understand the why's in music.

His training started at GIT (
Guitar Institute of Technology) in Hollywood where he gleaned 30+ yrs. of information from world renowned guitarists and musicians. Scott went on to graduate from Belmont University with honors in Composition and Arranging. Playing in Rock, R&B, Country, Classical and Jazz original and cover bands has enhanced his skills and made him a well rounded musician. He has the ability to teach these styles and make a living playing them.

Scott teaches all levels of students from beginner to advanced as well as the "signed artist" who have recording deals and need a little extra coaching. He has taught well known musician's family members and many of Scott's former students have gone on to make a career of their own in music as teachers, performers or composers.

"I enjoy music so much that it has always been a pleasure to pass on the knowledge of playing music."

I took weekly electric guitar lessons with Scott from 2004 to 2012. He is without a doubt an extremely talented, enthusiastic, and compassionate teacher. Whether he was helping me learn basic chords or teaching me complicated songs, Scott never wavered in his dedication to teaching. Over the eight years as his student, Scott gave constructive criticism in a courteous manner. He was on time, inquisitive about the songs and music I was listening to, and ended lesson with new material for me to practice. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to any aspiring guitar student.

I specialize in heavy metal playing. I know every technique for soloing and Rhythm playing from classic early metal like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Led Zeppelin, but also from later greats in the thrash metal genre. Including: Metallica, diamond head, motorhead, anthrax, slayer, megadeth and exodus. I have been playing for 8 years. And have a lot of experience teaching friends who were beginners and hardened veterans who wanted to learn new sweep picking patterns or just wanted to jam and learn some new tricks. Every scale, for evil tonalities and metal licks/ melodies from your favorites. Modal progressions featured in metal and techniques as simple and palm muting to extremely complex techniques such as sweep picking/tapping alternate picking and string skipping by legendary shredders like Marty friedman, tosin abasi and Kirk Hammett. I can help you obtain your dream of playing like your metal heroes. I can and will give you the tools to make it happen. However I ...

My class focuses on giving beginners a great solid set of skills to expand on and find their own voice on guitar, I aim to give students the exact tools for their skill level, I am a very relaxed and friendly teacher, i believe in never overwhelming or discouraging my students by bombarding them with abstract music theory concepts their first day playing guitar. My lessons are designed to slowly and healthily build technical ability in a stress free and helpful environment where every question is answered and explained in detail. Students will learn to play musical concepts, including but not limited to by any means: Scales, chords, modes, songs, impro

I have taught guitar for a few years and have been a Professional Guitar Player for a number of years. I am Very Experienced with Electric and Acoustic Styles. I have been on tour and played in numerous bands around the California and Washington Area. I currently play in a ProgRock band based out of Santa Cruz. I study a lot in my own time to continue learning more and create lesson plans for the serious and light students. If you are looking to learn songs, learn theory, learn the way the guitar works and how it weaves in and out of songs, I will be able to teach you that and much more. If you are looking to play shows, and are looking to join a band but need some help, I can spice up your chops and make you comfortable in a public setting. Performance and band settings are one of my specialties. I also include a bit of theory knowledge to whatever level of playing you are at so that way you can grasp the concept of the art we are involved in, making the guitar and music seem so ...

About Kyle
I am a 26 year old musician who has been playing since 13 years old. I started out on bass because I thought 4 strings would be easier, a year later I decided six strings was a bit more challenging and I have never looked back. As a sophomore in high school I won the battle of the bands contest and a year later I played my first gig in a local bar! Since then I have always thrived to be a great performer and a solid player. A part of me has always wanted to pass on my knowledge to anyone who is interested in being a great player and/or performer. Even if you play a different instrument than guitar and are looking for an extra skill for performance or musicianship, I can be the help that you need. I had a conversation with a friend of mine who plays the banjo and every time we play he learns something from me even though I don't play the b
anjo. We decided that I could teach "How to be a musician". So that is what I specialize in as well as the guitar itself! I have played in numerous bands around the Washington State and California area, I currently play in a ProgRock band based out of Santa Cruz, Ca. I have studied music theory for 10 years and it makes playing so much more simplistic once you get the fundamentals down, and it only grows more and more the more that you learn. From my studies I have gained easier ways to learn theory and ways for students to understand what is being taught. I am also a dad with a 3 year old son which inspires me everyday to teach and be a great person. Currently, I work at a local guitar store here in Santa Cruz and I am going to school to earn my bachelors degree in music. I also have been studying the piano. I can read music and I can teach how to transpose material. I can teach all styles although I specialize in Rock n' Roll, Blues, Pop-Rock, and Metal Styles. Feel free to ask any questions you may have!

I have been playing guitar now for 22 years. It has been a lifelong passion of mine that I would like to share with you. I like to build lessons based on music that YOU or your child enjoys listening to. I find that this approach much more rewarding and makes the motivation to practice come naturally. Most importantly I want to make sure that learning guitar is fun. Many people buy a guitar learn a few songs with power chords, get bored and then the guitar either gathers dust or ends up in a pawn shop somewhere. I not only want to teach you guitar but more importantly teach you music. I take pride in my ability to nurture passion in music which makes practicing an enjoyment rather than a chore. I will teach you or your child the foundation of music theory, chords, rhythm, scales, soloing, music genres all personalized to you. I can teach anyone from grade school to adulthood. All you need is a guitar and a willingness to learn. I can also teach beginner level piano. I hope to be ...

About Maxwell
I am passionate lifelong guitar player. I began playing when I was 8 years old and over the course of the next 22 years improved through private lessons, playing guitar in high school band, amateur rock bands as a teenager as well as studying some music theory at Brooklyn College. I am well versed in a wide array of musical genres and can tailor my lessons to your specific tastes and needs while still covering the fundamental techniques, theory, ear training and skills necessary to meet your musical goals.
