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!

I have been playing the guitar for 13 years. As a recent graduate from Southeastern Louisiana University, I have been teaching guitar and ukulele lessons as well as classes since the spring of this year (2017). I hold a bachelor's degree in music performance with my primary instrument being the guitar.
I can help you to acquire a solid foundation of music theory knowledge. You can help to better understand music theory concepts if they are paired with guitar techniques to supplement them.
If you are a complete beginner, do not be afraid! I will help you to learn at a pace which is comfortable but still effective for you. These lessons will be focused and designed to fit YOUR needs. Let's learn together :)

Hey, I'm Bennett, and I have been teaching piano and guitar for nearly 3 years. My goal as a teacher is to make my students succeed in their goals. Everyone responds differently to music lessons, which is why I prepare individualized lessons for each and every student. There is plenty of repertoire to choose from. On top of the guitar, I can also teach music theory. I feel it is important for you as a musician to understand why everything sounds and works the way it does. I have found that understanding this allows you to be a better musician. I look forward to teaching you!

About Bennett

All throughout high school, I taught piano and guitar to mostly elementary-aged kids. I still continue to teach, but it remains mostly though an online setting. I never had a teacher when I was learning guitar, but I wish I had, so I could've avoided time-consuming mistakes that took years to fix.

"I started playing ukulele a few years ago and took lessons with a teacher that were, sadly, unfulfilling and unmotivating. I gave up on lessons until I decided to finally pick up guitar and try again to move forward with more lessons and strengthen my music theory base. Trevor has made learning the guitar a worthwhile investment that is absolutely paying off. Suddenly things make so much more sense musically, and I’m excited to practice at home and prepare to come back to my next lesson with new things to show him and new questions to ask. Trevor has been a delight as a teacher. He’s patient, understanding, funny, and willing to try more than a few angles to find out what excites his students and drives them to be better musicians than they were when they entered the room. I never dread a lesson with him, and I’m always just a little bummed when they’re finally over!"

"Greg was a joy to work with. He made it easy to improve and understands how to meet you at your level, which for me was quite low. He can be an intuitive instructor when needed, meaning he has a plan but isn’t captive to it when he sees the need for improvisation."

He is patient with students beginning a new instrument and instills a passion to the art of guitar. He quickly finds the best method through differentiation to teach his students. Matt is adept at finding the right words and drills to best improve his students. I highly recommend Matt for guitar lessons via skype."

5 Killer Tips for Mastering Guitar Chords

Last week, TakeLessons teacher Kevin B. showed us how to play 5 easy guitar chords that allow you to play tons of easy songs.  Have you been practicing? Just as pianists should learn the theory behind scales, beginner guitar players should review individual chords to ensure a well-rounded foundation.  After all, chords are the basis of guitar playing, so the more you know, the easier time you'll have learning songs.  Instead of just memorizing each chord, go the extra mile to really unders …
