Russ is a straight up musical genius that has decades of experience playing the guitar. He will make you think of music in an entirely different way and his unique approach to the guitar makes learning so much easier. Definitely worth it!

Lessons can be structured with any level or style in mind, whether it be classical guitar performance or simply jamming on an acoustic with friends for fun!

Adam is truly an amazing guitar teacher! Not only is he very knowledgeable, but he has developed a great structure and plan for his lessons, while at the same time being flexible enough to meet the needs of each individual student. His way of explaining concepts is very clear and he's a very patient and understanding instructor. My 13-year old daughter is already learning a ton from him! Highly recommended!

Mike taught Leo in person before the pandemic started and has been doing online lessons with him for the past eight months. He is amazing with both. Leo has a very short attention span, but a deep love for music. Mike has been able to hold Leo’s attention every week for over a year — even during online lessons. Leo has become an awesome little pianist, and has developed a love for the piano. It has given him the ability to express all of his feelings and has helped his attention span for his schoolwork. Mike has so much patience, and always inquires about Leo’s favorite activities. He is great with kids and makes them feel so comfortable. Leo loves his “booming voice” and the free play blues music they get to play together every lesson.

Private Guitar Teacher

Hello! My name is Laura. I think you would love taking lessons with me- A little bit about my own background in music: my parents are musicians and music teachers as well ave been taking guitar lessons since the day I was born practically! In 2011 I started teaching private music lessons myself, teaching multiple after school music classes at local schools, and directing local band programs. After high school I attended Musician’s Institute for a degree in vocal performance and music theory. I have assisted and worked many musicians and producers. I myself have performed and played guitar in over 100 musical concerts and performances, as well as recorded and released my own music. In working with me at The Dave Curtis Music Academy, students also have access to many opportunities to play, write, and collaborate with other artists and students who also share a passion for music, as well as opportunities to participate in group/band practices and performances.

"Just had lesson number two with Lars. I've never played any instrument before and am having a great time. Lars is patient and encouraging when teaching. I'm having a blast and hope he finds as much enjoyment teaching as I do learning. Growing up in the 60's doesn't allow me much time to become proficient. There just aren't that many years left in me. I won't be playing any Freebird riffs anytime soon, but I'm pretty confident as I learn more with Lars I'll be able to play a few ditties around the fire pit. Looking for a good instructor, he's your guy!"

"He was calm and civil in the face of many frustrations and issues, all of them our fault. My daughter's amp broke during the start of the first lesson, she had no electronic tuner ready for the first lesson, her guitar was badly out of tune, and she knew nothing about the fundamentals of music or reading music. It was frustrating; but she got through it and even learned a few things. She will be ready with a new or repaired amp for the next lesson and has been encouraged to practice daily until then. Thank you for being so patient and professional."

The 10 Best Guitar Soloists of All Time | Solos and Guitar Tricks
