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

Learn your favorite songs and riffs! Soloing, rhythm guitar, fingerpicking, and more. The foundation of music lessons is good ears and good time feel (groove). These are skills that all the best musicians have. That, along with some study of guitar basics will cover about half of our lesson time. The other half should be devoted to the kind of music that inspired you to look me up. My hope is that you will become a well rounded musician and guitar player, and that we'll both discover new music :-)

I also enjoy preparing for jam sessions, auditions, and competing for placement in school ensembles and for scholarships.

About Trevor

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the huge, black monstrosities t

Online Guitar Teacher

I am a working jazz/classical guitarist in the Northeast Louisiana area. I currently hold teaching residencies at Matt’s Music, Paul Hewitt Music, Strauss Youth Academy, Questech Learning Center and Geneva Academy. I have a Bachelor’s in Instrumental Music Education (K-12) that I obtained at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

I am unique in the aspect that I am very patient and will work hard to push a student in the direction that they want to go - I firmly believe that the ‘right’ way to learn, is to learn what you want to play.

Currently I maintains a rigorous gigging schedule, playing five days weekly at the Warehouse No. 1 and Copeland's of Monroe, performing jazz and classical repertoire for solo guitar. I have taught students who have successfully auditioned into college jazz guitar
programs at ULM, UNO and UNT.

I have extensive teaching experience with people of all ages, and I offer recital opportunities throughout the year. I have a passion for guitar education, and ...

Online Guitar Teacher

I specialize in flamenco guitar, one of the most challenging styles of guitar playing. The techniques and fundamentals of flamenco are valuable resources for any guitarist, regardless of genre or style. While everything is taught through the filter of flamenco, students will gain a wealth of knowledge applicable to the guitar in general.

One can expect to start by developing a full technical routine aimed at developing stamina, strength, precision, and speed. All fundamental techniques will be introduced. Rhythm will be emphasized throughout. Harmony studies will be introduced where appropriate. Repertoire is given according to each student's capabilities and tastes, including resources for accompanying dance and singing.

About Gustavo

PERSONAL BIO I am a North American flamenco guitarist currently living in Sevilla, Spain. My music is grounded in traditional flamenco and incorporates elements of jazz, classical, and world music. My fascination with music and the guitar began early, and I picked up the instrument in earnest at

I have been taking flamenco guitar lessons from Gustavo for over 2 years and have only good things to say about him. His passion for flamenco, his eclectic knowledge of the style, his considerate teaching style are second to none. Gustavo is very inspirational and his teaching style adapts easily to any student’s level. He is easy going and his choice of material is exceptional. I would highly recommend Gustavo to anyone willing to explore the depths and subtaltiies of the flamenco guitar.

"I'm into my second month of weekly guitar lessons with Brett and can't believe how well I am playing already!! I've had some basic guitar lessons in the past but still very much a beginner. Brett knew precisely where to start and what I needed next to advance my playing, and broke it down into attainable steps. So far I've learned a good handful of strum patterns; I can finally play two songs pretty well and sing along; and I am in the rudimentary stage of learning to finger pick. Really love the fact that beautiful sounds are coming from my instrument! Highly recommend if you're ready to make the commitment to becoming a capable player."

"I've been learning with Eric for a year now and my playing has progressed ten-fold. Have been able to pick up jazz concepts which I never thought I would, as well as apply practical theory and scales to my playing which has opened up the fretboard.

The best part, though, has been writing my own songs and breaking them down with Eric to add/remove things that work or don't work. Now starting to record some ideas and workshop them further -- something I never thought I'd be doing! Can't recommend Eric highly enough. He's flexible, highly experienced and teaches in a relaxed environment."
