Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

Beginner
Learn the basics of rhythm and tonality, as well as how they apply to your instrument. Then use those tools to learn the music you're interested in.

Intermediate
Learn about common variations of the tonalities you already know and start to venture into more complex rhythm ideas like polyrhythms. Also start to build the chops to learn parts more accurately when learning songs.

Advanced
Expand into more complex polyrhythms as well as asymmetrical meters. Also expand harmony and melody to include modes and chromaticism. Push your skills through original creations or original arrangements of existing material.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"I've really enjoyed working with Tim, as an adult learner, my goal is to learn how to play guitar to just have a few sing a-longs with friends. I've also had an event where I was performing a song, and Tim helped me gear up to learn the song from the ground up. We even had more lessons as the time got closer to perfect the music and get it refined. I really appreciate his support, his teaching style, and patience. I am not a quick learner and while learning guitar is a tough road for me, Tim is very patient even when I'm at whits end, bringing me back so I can keep making progress."

I spoke with him on the phone to get an idea of where I'm at and where I want to be, so immediately when I came to my first lesson we hit the ground running! I am very pleased with what I've learned so far and it's now up to me to practice and have my questions ready to make the most out of the time given (which is the fastest half hour you'll live ) I definitely recommend Sam to any level student who is serious about reaching the next level."

"My daughter went to Kevin for instructions on guitar. She had no experience, no guitar, and we weren’t sure if she’d like it. Kevin gave us affordable suggestions for a guitar to buy, and she has looked forward to his lessons each week. She really wanted to learn how to play an Adele song and after a few weeks she has mastered it. Kevin is personable, reasonable, intelligent, and thoughtful. I’ve been recommending him to our friends who have children that have been considering lessons."
