About Myles G.

Close
Prairie Village, KS

View Full Profile

Beginners will learn the basics of how to hold, strum, fret, play their first chords, and get introduced to simple musical concepts.

Intermediate/Advanced students will learn ways of visualizing and mapping the fretboard. They will learn ways of improvising that break away from the pentatonic box cliches. Students will learn triads and 7th chords in all inversions and in multiple voicings. They will learn 9th, 11th, and 13th chords. Students will learn to think like musicians rather than just guitar players, learning how music works so they can essentially fit into any musical situation regardless of genre.

My goal is to make you a complete musician who is only limited by your own creativity and drive, not by the instrument itself.

About myles
I grew up playing in blues bands and eventually became interested in jazz. Over the years, I've gigged in a variety of genres from jazz and blues to r&b, hip-hop, soul, funk, pop, musical theater, rock, etc. in KC, NYC, and throughout the Midwest.

My teaching isn't genre-specific. I give you the tools and knowledge to do anything you want with music and the guitar, whether your goal is to strum folk songs, audition for music school, play blues or jazz guitar, or just about anything else.

My qualifications:

- B.F.A. in Jazz and Contemporary Music from The New School (NYC, 2012)
- M.M. in Jazz Studies from Aaron Copland School of Music (NYC, 2018)

I'm available to teach online via webcam and in person at Village Music Academy in Prairie Village, KS.

I have taken webcam lessons from Myles for a little over two years now and I couldn't ask for a better teacher. I had already played guitar for years and studied with a few local teachers, but was stuck in a rut. I now know a lot more about music than I did when I started with him.

Alan was awesome! My son needed some last minute lessons before an upcoming concert he was performing in. Alan helped him fine tune his part and gave him the confidence he needed. My son is now excited for the concert and can't wait to show everyone his talent!

I have been taking lessons with Frank for several years and I think he is an excellent instructor. He has helped me have confidence in my abilities and is patient when I get frustrated. He has been able to teach me about music theory in such a way that it is understandable. I have been to some of his performances and he is a talented musician as well as instructor.

I enjoy giving lessons tailored to each student's needs and goals. From those who have never picked up a guitar to those who are auditioning for a major music college, I love to help others learn how amazing the guitar is.

My style is geared toward the individual, but I do specialize more in teaching: songwriting on guitar, music theory on guitar, developing great technique, how to read notes and tab on guitar, and learning my student's favorite songs and adapting them to fit their skill level.

I have been teaching guitar for over twelve years, and have professional songwriting experience (over 50 compositions published), band and recording experience (major radio-play in America and Europe), and I am classically trained and have a degree in music.

Let me help you achieve your music dreams!

I have known Marlon for a while now. He is a good guy, a good friend and a good guitar player. I would have to say Marlon has been teaching me how to play the guitar for about a year now. He’s very good at what he does. I enjoy Heavy Metal. Because of Marlon, I can play it. I would refer him to any teaching job involving the guitar, bass or acoustic.

I have been teaching for the past 8 years, and have worked with any age or skill level you can imagine. This has allowed me to create a methodology that will make sure you obtain the foundation you need in order to thrive at playing an instrument, but never lose track of what kind of music you're looking towards learning, and where your interests lie. I also have extensive performing experience having played and learned styles such as Flamenco (my first introduction to music), Jazz (I have a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Jazz Performance), Rock, Blues, Classical music and many more.

About Julian
I have a Bachelors degree in Jazz Performance from Berklee College of Music, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude, and a Masters Degree from Queens College in Jazz performance, studying under musicians such as Mike Moreno, Antonio Hart, Alain Mallet, David Berkman, Michael Mossman, Tim Miller and many more. I have also extensively studied other styles such as Flamenco, Classical, Rock and Blues.

I am an active bandleader in the New York City Jazz scene playing with my group in Jazz clubs through the city, as well as all around the United States, Spain, Italy and Ecuador. I addition to my personal projects, I also play as a sideman with groups such as the Konection Trio, Flying Robin Project, Dailza Ribeiro etc

Julian is the man! I started learning guitar from him a while ago and I can't believe how far we've come. I can now play some songs by myself, even learn them without his assistance. I had this idea that I wasn't cut for music making (I used to play some violin when I was younger, never got any good at it) but I couldn't resist the idea of learning how to play some guitar. Thanks to Julian (and his patience!) I no longer feel like I'm unable to do this. Take a lesson with him, you wont regret it!
