Playing and teaching the guitar is my life's biggest passion. I began playing guitar in highschool in a rock band, and fell in love with the instrument. Since then I decided to major in music, became obsessed with classical guitar, and now I'm teaching classical guitar at UNLV while pursuing a doctorate of music there.

I teach all styles though, and I aim to help my students reach whatever goals with music they may have. I also have a good knowledge of music theory, something that's helpful in all musical endeavors. I'm also very good for beginners, as I can ensure no technical bad habits are developed.

About Michael
I moved to Las Vegas in August to pursue a doctorate of music in guitar performance. I'm also teaching at UNLV part time, and want to expand my teaching into the local community. I've been teaching for many years now, at universities, music stores and private in-home lessons like I'm offering on this site.

I aim to give my students the skills to pursue whatever they would like on the guitar. I'm a professional classical guitarist, but I got my start playing rock and roll and am comfortable teaching a variety of genres if the student wants to learn a specific style. I feel I am a great teacher for total beginners as well, I make sure the student has a rounded approach and avoids developing bad habits.

So happy to have found Michael on Take Lessons. He is patient, easy going, professional, personable and takes the intimidation out of the equation and makes learning fun. It takes a great deal for my son to be excited and motivated. After his guitar lesson, he was both. An hour later...still practicing. :) Thank you Michael!

Excellent musician and guitarist. Plus, he knows how to teach. Michael keeps the lessons interesting sharing stories of famous guitarists, demonstrating on his guitar how to do certain techniques, and playing duets. He can talk the talk and walk the walk!

Bio

I have played guitar since I was 12 and been teaching in the Las Vegas area for the past 8. Studied formally in Contemporary, Classical, Blues styles & Improvisation. Have taken multiple seminars under Berklee International Network. I currently Perform Live with a band and have Professionally Produced albums on iTunes. I am a patient teacher good with beginners and challenging with advanced. I am also available

About J. Pablo
Pablo possesses a natural talent for music and is also academically accomplished. I believe Pablo was prepared for each lesson and his compassion for this subject was very high.
I've had a couple different private teachers prior to Pablo, but Pablo was the only teacher that excelled at improvisation and had a more methodical approach to musical performance. The first few lessons consisted of learning theory and how the music scales are related to each other. As the lessons evolve, we use that knowledge to start improvising. Even though I play guitar as hobby, Pablo gives me the motivation to get better as a guitar player. I hold him in the highest regard, and I would rate Pablo as an excellent teacher.

Based upon his knowledge and ability to play guitar, I believe he would be one of the best teachers to take lessons from.

Sincerely,

Al

To potential Guitar students and parents.
Pablo is the guitar teacher for my son. He makes learning very enjoyable. He teaches in such a comfortable way that you don't realize you are studying. He teaches all the basics and theory with the song of your choice. He has a very pleasant and patient personality. He gives the students confidence with lots of praise and affirmation. He loves music and guitar and he passes that on to his students. I highly recommend this talented teacher. June B.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pablo is a fantastic teacher who helped me push through the barriers taking me from a beginning guitarist to intermediate and beyond. He teaches in a very clear and direct style, touching on all the things that makes someone a well rounded guitar player, chords, leads, improvising, theory, tempo and creativity.

My lessons with Pablo weren't just guitar lessons, but music lessons, as he broke down music theory and how it relates to writing your own song, or improvising with a group. He does this in a way that's practical for guitarists, with mental shortcuts and tip that can only come from a seasoned guitarist / songwriter / all around good dude. Clyde B.

Guitar is my main instrument as a music major in college. I want students to learn at their on pace while motivating them to progress with each lesson.

I've been playing guitar for the last 15 years and giving lessons for almost as long! I have a degree in music from the University of Miami and am currently touring out of Nashville. I'd like to think I have a fairly wide range of musical tastes (jazz, country, blues, acoustic, gypsy jazz, rockabilly, rock, etc.) and I enjoy the different challenges that each of my students bring to the table. So whether you're just wanting to strum a few old favorites at home, or if you're on your way to being a Nashville pro like me, I'd be happy to help you along your musical journey!

About Matthew
I picked up the guitar (at my father's encouragement) back in 2003 and never quite turned back! Originally from Kansas City, MO, I first got regular exposure playing in my high school's jazz band and in various other jazz groups, and was lucky enough to study extensively with local guitarists Rod Fleeman and Danny Embrey. I still make occasional trips back to my hometown to perform and record, and played on a couple of records with the KC-based group The Matt Cook Collective in 2016 and 2017.

My next stop was the University of Miami, where I attended the Frost School of Music from 2012-2016 and was fortunate enough to study with John Hart, Brian Russell, and Tim Jago I played with my first Grammy winner (multi-instrumentalist guru Charlie McCoy) and released an EP with Big City Folk Band in 2015. In between school semesters, I performe
d with country and jazz groups in Kansas City and gave lessons at KC Music, a local music store.

In 2017, I relocated to Nashville, began touring with country artist Derryl Perry, and recorded and released my first solo album, Aces. In between tour dates, I've been enjoying the task of expanding both my teaching studio and my guitar resume in this growing city.

I have also taken lessons from Gonzalo Bergara, Dan Wilson, Lorne Lofsky, Charlie Hunter, Jim Campilongo, Randy Vincent, Greg Koch, Guthrie Trapp, Brent Mason, and many more!

Update: will be at the Smoky Mountain Opry in Pigeon Forge TN in 2018!

I believe understanding music theory and history are the keys to a great musician.

Knowing the right musicians and bands to look up that will help drive every student to wanting to become great.

Finally... I believe anyone can play an instrument, but not everyone can write music, and that is what I aim to teach.

About Sam
Being an 8 year old kid with a strong passion for music. I was able to pick up on the basics of music that can be understood and well grasped by an 8 year old.

I grow up on the classics and i studied every guitar solo and riff. I wanted to be able to perform the same way those guys did. And i did just that 4 years later when i was 12.

I want to share with students that same vibe and feeling i had when i was a beginner.
