Private Guitar Teacher

Hello! I’m Jeff, an experienced guitarist with 15 years of live performance experience and 7 years of teaching experience. I pride myself in my ability to make lessons as fun and informative as possible.

I customize my lessons to the student depending on their skill level/goals. So whether you want to shred solos, understand songwriting, or just want to be able to strum through your favorite songs, I can help you get there!

I like to find fun ways to teach songs and link it together with music theory, so that my students can play music as well as understand it. This can help you to figure out songs on your own in the future.

I specialize in teaching Blues, Jazz, Rock and Fingerstyle. All ages welcome!

Please message me if you are interested.

About Jeff

My daughter loves her lessons with Jeff. He is a very skilled guitarist and makes it fun to learn. He is able to teach her quite a bit in the amount of time she has with him. She looks forward to her lessons and enjoys practicing what she’s learned in between.
Charlotte
Jeff is a colleague of mine and we’ve worked closely together both in a teaching setting and performance setting. Not only is he a killer performer and player, he’s also a really great teacher. He knows his stuff, is great with kids and adults and really inspires his students. I’ve watched countless students flourish with him as a teacher. Couldn’t recommend him more!
Phil
Jeff masters the balance of professional knowledge and a great, laid back demeanor. He delivers information in a way I can understand and inspires me to push myself to be the best musician I can be. I highly recommend working with him, you will make tremendous progress if you follow his practice recommendations.

I have been playing the Guitar since I was in junior high and love being able to play. I enjoy passing on the knowledge I have to my students so they can write and/or perform their own songs, or just to play for their own enjoyment. I teach acoustic guitar, strumming styles, good timing, and fairly advanced finger picking techniques. My students range form 7 years on up.

About Susan

I hold a bachelor's degree in music performance with my primary instrument being the guitar.
I can help you to acquire a solid foundation of music theory knowledge. You can help to better understand music theory concepts if they are paired with guitar techniques to supplement them.

Online Guitar Teacher

Interested in playing the guitar? I've had over ten years of experience teaching the guitar, and even more time using the instrument in live performance. If you're a beginner, we can start from the ground up; we'll learn how to hold the guitar, how to tune, and how to strum your first chords. From there, we'll build the lessons around you-what you want to learn and the music you want to play! All music requires you to learn, but I believe your learning experience should be fun, so come into your first lesson thinking about the songs you want to play, because I'll have you strumming it in no time!

About Chris

A short history of my experience with music and education: The first instrument I learned to play was the guitar in 2001. I played the guitar on the worship team at FBC of Midway in Plant City, FL from 2001 to 2005. I began teaching private music lessons in 2003. I played bass guitar in

CHRIS was awesome!!! My first lesson was with a guitar that I’d had for years, he fixed the guitar so that I would have something to practice on, whilst he fixed the guitar he didn’t forget why he was there and went over notes and chords etc, After fixing my guitar we had time to go over the gchord and I pretty much had it as he was walking out the door. I’m very pleased!!!

Chris is a wonderful instructor. I took music recording lessons from him and it was very informative and relaxed.

"Excellent Instructor

Wes is an excellent instructor. He is patient, clear, encouraging, fun, and totally professional. I highly recommend him to anyone (young or old) wanting to learn the guitar.

Wes listens to what the student wants to learn and sets his lessons to help the student achieve their goals. Our lessons are in the instructor's studio, which is a safe, accessible, and clean environment.

I look forward to our future sessions and continuing my guitar learning under his instruction."

"If you have an opportunity to study with Andrew, take it.

Andrew is an exceptionally gifted teacher. He knows music through and through. He knows guitar forward and back. His command of music theory, the guitar and performance is so complete (so second-nature to him), he can direct his conscious attention entirely to the needs of the student, adapting his teaching methodology accordingly. And he does it with such ease and comity.

Every lesson I attended was relaxed, cordial, fun and packed with tips, expertise & insight."
