Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching acoustic guitar for the last 5 years. I can help you learn more about open/bar chords, finger picking, palm muting, scales, power chords, and soloing/improvisation. We can also work on learning your favorite tunes and maybe writing of some of your own! I am here to help you achieve your goals as a guitar player.

Jeremie was calm and very supportive for this beginner. I have made progress over the first week. As with any instrument, practice is the key. He gave me the tools to do so.

"James instructed my son in guitar. Not only is he a knowledgeable teacher but he is an accomplished musician who makes the learning fun and instills an excitement in the kids to learn and grow in their skills. He instructs the basics but also gives them skills they can put into practice quickly to be encouraged in what they are learning. My son now leads in worship and has pursued his gifting."

"If you like guitar, you'll like James.

I have had about a dozen lessons so far with James, starting out as a complete beginner, with knowledge of only a few chords. In this short time, I have learned a great deal of theory, practice strategy, playing full songs, and even singing along with a few in time. James has been very hospitable and patient, and I recommend him to anyone who loves the guitar, regardless of skill!"

He is truly interested in seeing me improve. I'm a songwriter and I need to up my game to be able to hang with co-writers who are more advanced musically, and I also have the goal to play out at writers rounds and open mics and I need to get a little more proficient for that.

However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances.
