Private Guitar Teacher

If you are new to the guitar, we will learn about the instrument itself. The different parts, and what they do. Also, how to care for it, so it will perform well for you. We will work hard to have you playing something as soon as possible, but not under pressure.

Soon after you begin, when things progress well, we can try learning a favorite song that you choose. We'll start out very basic. Probably just playing the tune one note at a time. Then we'll do the chords and then play it together.

My favorite part of teaching is seeing someone do well on their instrument. When the work pays off, and everything starts making sense to the student, and they are learning new things on their own.

Jomaliz was very attentive to my needs. She helped me with my vocal range, breathing and gave me a lot of techniques to get me ready for my audition. She definitely knows what she's doing. She was great! I plan on continuing my lessons with her.

Online Guitar Teacher

I specialize in beginner/intermediate level basics, with rock and blues genres specifically. I focus extensively on the topics of improvisation and on developing your personal voice on the instrument, along with solid, natural technique.

I believe in growing as a guitarist not just through technical proficiency, but also in overall musicianship. My approach to learning songs is not just being able to play a song, but to understand why it works, and how you can translate the things you hear into techniques and ideas you can utilize in your own songwriting.

About Rachel

I'm a guitarist based out of the Atlanta, GA area with 9+ years experience playing, teaching and performing music. My influences cover a wide spectrum, and I'm most at home playing in a blues, rock or indie style. I am currently working on a certificate in jazz guitar from Berklee College of Mu

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

"Ryan is the third guitar teacher I have tried and in my opinion the best. While the others I tried were either too unstructured or too technical, Ryan does an excellent job of teaching you the all the basics while tying in the more technical theory aspects in a manner that is both efficient and logical. The way he is able to break things down has helped me progress much faster compared to my other guitar teachers. He is also well versed in adapting yours lessons to the style of music you want to learn how to play and can teach you all the different nuances that will help your playing stand out. I highly recommend giving Ryan a shot to help your reach your guitar playing goals."
