Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

Strum, solo, compose, sing and back yourself up. What can't you do with a guitar? We'll learn the tunes you want to learn along with the theory behind them. I might back you up on bass, guitar, or piano. We'll get right to playing music as fast as possible.

Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Perfect. He matched his lesson beautifully with the music I like and how I am likely to learn quickly. Could not ask for better.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have over 10 years of experience playing the acoustic guitar, and have played in several bands, and in numerous concerts. You can expect to learn how to play the basic chords and progressions, and learn good hand techniques to improve your playing.

In addition, we can learn any songs you want to learn, and I'll show you how to approach them to get the best results. Other techniques we may learn along the way include hammer ons and pull offs, palm muting, alternate picking, bends, slides, tapping, and soloing, depending on your skill level, and progression throughout our lessons.

I have a steel string and nylon acoustic guitar, and if you don't own one, you can use one of my guitars for the duration of the lesson.

Very nice and relaxed environment. Kory is knowledgeable and lets his experience do more talking than his words. You can tell he has spent his life playing music and his casual approach to teaching is good for beginners like me.
Addison B.
My son has just had his 1st lesson and he's ecstatic, he asked when he could take his next lesson; fortunately, Kory could get him in for another lesson this week.
I'm pleased that he's excited to finally learn to play his guitar.

What a patient, knowledgeable teacher. I really forward to a music journey with him.

"Just wrapped up 5 lessons with Ryan S. He is very easy going and patient with any questions you have. Definitely feels like he takes you the long way around so that you end up with a more thorough understanding of the guitar and how to use it as efficiently as possible. I've been strumming this guitar for about 8 years and am learning a lot of things that I never even knew existed. Great teacher. Highly recommended."

Ryan is extremely patient and friendly. I was always impressed with the good communication that he employed. Every lesson I had felt like it was tailored to me personally and they were always fun. I strongly suggest giving Ryan a try, he won't let you down."

John brings a lot of experience as a musician to his teaching. For much of his life he has performed on stage as a Rock and Jazz guitarist. In addition to teaching music, John Krauss is an award winning sound engineer.

"Aaron is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and easy to work with.

I've had a block with music theory & soloing for years. In our very first lesson, Aaron helped me gain new perspective on the fretboard, and in the week that followed I had a major soloing breakthrough!

He really takes the time to go slow and make sure I'm understanding each concept, and theory is finally starting to make sense to me. And even though we're "going slow," when I look over our lesson notes, I'm always surprised at how much we've accomplished. This guy is a treasure trove of knowledge and encouragement.

I appreciate Aaron's skill in both playing and teaching, and I look forward to many more lessons this year."
