Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have over 10 years of experience playing the acoustic guitar, and have played in several bands, and in numerous concerts. You can expect to learn how to play the basic chords and progressions, and learn good hand techniques to improve your playing.

In addition, we can learn any songs you want to learn, and I'll show you how to approach them to get the best results. Other techniques we may learn along the way include hammer ons and pull offs, palm muting, alternate picking, bends, slides, tapping, and soloing, depending on your skill level, and progression throughout our lessons.

I have a steel string and nylon acoustic guitar, and if you don't own one, you can use one of my guitars for the duration of the lesson.

My 10 year old wanted to learn how to play the electric guitar. We found Kory through take lessons and hes happy we did. He has made good progress in the time hes been going. We will keep going back for more lessons. He really enjoys the lessons.

If you are looking to learn how to play guitar, look no further. Kory is an excellent teacher and takes his time showing you how to break down complex skills. He is super patient I’ll tell you that forsure. Im a very slow learner and it really sucks but Kory reassured me that everyone has different paces and we shouldnt compare them. Ive definitely improved a lot with just 10 sessions.

Kori's awesome! Learned so much in the first lesson. Looking forward to continuing!

Have you always wanted to play the guitar but did not know where to start? Perhaps you've tried learning through videos, online guides, and books but couldn't quite grasp the content provided by the lessons. It can be very daunting and frustrating trying to learn something new and having no one to clarify the subject for you or no where to turn for questions. As a intermediate/advanced guitar player I am here to help! I am currently 23 years old and have been playing guitar for a little over 9 years. I am a self-taught guitarist and have taken some music theory courses in college. I have never taught lessons professionally but I can definitely teach you all I have learned from, general chords to fretting technique to basic leads and fingerstyle picking to rhythm/strumming and harmonics! I love playing a little bit of all genres. I am a very jovial and laid back person and I especially enjoy working with beginners and children as I know how stressful it can be learning to play an ...

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Lee teaches acoustic guitar using a holistic and minimalist musical approach — you only learn what you really need to know. Learn how to play songs and have fun while you increase your guitar skills.

Students can learn on a steel-string acoustic guitar or a nylon string (classical) guitar. No note-reading is required to learn chord progressions, song structure, and effective strumming and picking patterns for folk, blues and rock acoustic guitar.

Lee uses a combination of her own visual materials and chord grids, popular acoustic songs, and select acoustic guitar method books. She's also a Beatles expert and can take you from "Twist and Shout" to "Blackbird".

Lee has performed and recorded as a singer-songwriter-guitarist since 2001, including hundreds of performances in the New Orleans area, ten years of performances at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and appearances at acoustic venues across the USA.

Nils is an extremely knowledgeable and accomplished instructor. He has extraordinary patience and excellent teaching skills. Coming from an adult student with high expectations, Nils has constantly delivered instructional value far beyond beyond what my paid "app" lessons were able to teach me. I highly recommend you give Nils a shot if you want to take your guitar playing to the next level.

Nils is extremely knowledgeable and explains concepts thoroughly and patiently. He’s very much mastered both teaching and performing his craft and is equal parts artistic and technicality minded, a balance most of my previous creative instructors lacked, and one I believe plays an integral part in teaching a craft well.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Teaching for over 24 years; owner of my own music store/studio for past 14 years.

Teaching beginner - advanced from age 5 to 70+.

I typically use the 21st Century Guitar method book with audio CD and I supplement the text with write-ins or handouts/worksheets as applied to the student's needs and questions. I try to get students playing chords as soon as possible; usually stating with open position power-chords and one or two finger open position chords.

I do flatpicking and fingerstyle ( with or without picks) and encourage students to try both. I try to get the student to sing and play - don't be bashful...I try to have fun with students.

I will help you learn to create chord progressions and write a chord chart and maybe a melody for your first songwriting experience. Usually we will do this using power -chords for beginners or what ever chords the student can handle.

I can train you how to learn songs by ear from recordings once you have some basic abilities.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Guitar lessons with me are unique because although I am young, I am a very experienced teacher already. I started learning guitar at 10 years old. By the time I was 16 I was gigging and teaching kids in my neighborhood and any Craigslist clients I could find. At 18, I took a 1.5 year program at the Los Angeles College of Music, where I graduated with an AA in guitar performance. Since then I have worked as a professional musician, and also as a teacher /consultant with Adopt the Arts, a non profit started by Matt Sorum (drummer of Guns N Roses, Hollywood Vampires) and director Abby Berman. In my time at Adopt the Arts I have amassed over 4000 teaching hours of teaching kids ages 4-13, so I am very experienced with kids and get along with them great since. I have also been giving other private lessons to people of all ages since 2011. Qualities that make me stand out as a teacher are relatability, patience, and an ability to identify the proper pace for the student to enjoy the ...

I felt really comfortable and not at all intimidated with my first lesson. Looking forward to the next lesson.

Taught at the basic level very well. If you know nothing about music or guitar Tommy's your guy. Goes through all the simple steps at an even pace making the entire experience relaxing. From there giving you the knowledge of your scales and blues scales, teaching you how to make mini solos on the spot really helps out with the musicality of it all. 10/5

"I am a professional peer, and fellow guitar instructor. Having known Kayla for the last several years, I have seen how her simple, yet masterfully thorough approach to instruction can excite and entertain students of all ages.

Kayla uses her collegiate level music theory and performance background to educate on a plethora of subjects. However, she clearly communicates beneficial concepts to both children and adults alike.

I highly recommend Kayla both as a peer, and a student. I’ve benefited from her wisdom, and insight throughout the years, and I know you will too."

She has learned a lot about the guitar in general, as well as music as a whole, and I love to hear her strumming away in her bedroom.

Chris is super responsive and adapts his lessons not only for my skill level, but also adapts the lessons to the small things that interest me. He's not only great at teaching the techniques needed to play well, but he provides enough theory so it's easy to understand.
