I want students to excel the fastest they can on guitar. Though I know it is important to let students learn at their own pace, I will never cease to challenge them through difficult pieces or exercises. I will develop plans and keep track of progress so that students and I can stay organized and ensure the learning is fluent. I will direct lessons based on what the student wants to learn most and what genres of music they are interested in. I also change the structure of lessons based on how the student learns. The basics I want students to learn from my lessons are basic chords, fretboard knowledge and music theory, finger-picking styles, pick and strumming techniques, left-hand techniques, and most importantly I want to teach students how to listen. I will train students ears through ear training exercises and songs. I firmly believe the better the student’s ears can get, the better the musician they can be. Besides just teaching songs, I want students to understand the theory, ...

We are so happy that we finally found a trained musician to teach my 13 yo son. Now my husband and I are taking lessons from William also. I feel that I finally have found the key to open up my music talent! Lol. William is very dedicated teacher and musician. He is skillful and he knows exactly what his students can do to make progress. Our time with him is very productive. If you want your kids to enjoy learning guitar in an encouraging environment, William is a great instructor. His time is valuable and he makes it worth your time.

William is a great teacher so far. He is also a pleasant person and very flexible with schedule and teaching style to meet students' needs.

My son and husband are taking lessons from William. I am so pleased that we have found a true musician., they seem to learn a lot in a few short lessons. My son starts to teach me guitar. His method makes the lesson easy for me to learn. His enthusiasm makes learning fun and 20 minutes lesson tolerable. I start to like my son more! William has changed my boy after only 2 lessons!

My name is Aaron Church,
I have been playing guitar for 12 years. In the past two years I have released 28 albums and 6 singles.
I specialize in blues and classic rock guitar. I teach students scales that incorporate world music techniques. I teach students a basic introduction to scales and show them how to build chords out of the scales. I teach improvisation specifically. I also teach students the blues and classic rock songs of their choice.
Each student must bring a binder with paper in it. I will hand write assignments for students to practice after each lesson. Before each lesson, the student must write a paragraph stating their goal for that lesson.
It is the discipline in organizing a schedule to practice assignments that will determine the success of a student.

About Will

Will Fletcher Instruction has been going strong since 2009. New students starting this year are doing great along w all the older, more musically advanced students. I want you to play music. I don't care how we get there as long as on your specific instrument you want to learn, you are making music

Will was everything I expected. I was looking for someone to teach naturally as opposed to rote (boring) learning. I'm sure Will can do rote but he did what I asked.

He really knows his music and can teach in a way that gets my son directly into actually playing music, which is exactly what I was after.

He’s really flexible and can take anything and turn it into something good.

The pace was spot-on, matching perfectly the maximum my son could understand at the time.

I think my son learnt the absolute maximum he could in that short space of time and he learned a LOT.

Great Fun!

I am a skilled and compassionate teacher with decades of experience working with both children and adults, crafting lessons to fit your personal musical goals. My teaching focus for beginner guitar is to get chords into your hands so you can begin to play songs as quickly as possible. You will learn some music theory as we go, that will help make sense of what you are learning and why. Mostly the lessons are created to be fun, rewarding and to prepare you to play music quickly and well. For intermediate students, I offer 30-plus years of guitar playing experience and many years of recording, performing and teaching the guitar to a wide range of players with the intention to add interest and uniqueness to your sound as a guitarist. Right hand techniques, how to "change it up" so the songs you play don't all sound the same.

I also teach songwriting, voice and performance so we can create combo lessons that meet your specific musical goals.

About Sharon

If you are looking for a compassionate and skilled teacher for guitar and voice students of all ages, you have come to the right place. I am a singer-songwriter, teacher, guitarist, seminar leader, writer and a mom of two amazing sons. I absolutely love children, teaching and music. I also love put

"Eric is a professional career musician who composes, records, and tours. I've taken lessons with him for the past eight months. He teaches everything you'd need to know as a player to improvise and go on to write your own music. Furthermore, he works from his students perception of genres of music, artists, and songs, that are interesting to them - so you will always be playing something that excites you."

"As a self taught guitar player of more than 20 years I found myself "playing inside the box". William was able to give me techniques and advice to drastically improve my playing. From beginners to more advanced players, William is phenomenal. I worked at a large music store in Tempe for 12 years and for the last several years William was the only instructor I sent my clients to. I don't vouch for many people but I am more than confident vouching for William."

"Gregory took me from not knowing how to play a thing to playing guitar and singing in a band in just under a year.

I didn't know what to expect from Gregory because the teachers teaching my friends all taught the same and they didn't want to practice all that much. Greg has worked with some of my idols/ rock stars and he doesn't fool around-he gets you into what you really need to know to get to where you want to go, fast. Thank God for Gregory ValensLuv being my teacher. My friends are thinking about switching to him. I highly recommend him. He's professional, well dressed, punctual, polite and knows what he's doing. Hemay be a little more expensive than the average teacher, but you get what you pay for."
