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!

Online Guitar Teacher

Hi, I’m Norman, and I teach guitar and all other fretted instruments. I have maintained a weekly schedule of about 40 studio and online students since 2010. Lessons with me are fun, streamlined, and filled with music.

My students can play their instruments well, and they know their chords, scales, arpeggios, songs, and other compositions. Using the state-of-the art music learning theory I studied at Eastman School of Music, performers gain the confidence to play in solo recitals, or with a group, or even to teach others to play, too.

About Norman

I have been teaching other people to play musical instruments since the moment I got home from my first music store guitar lesson. And while I am fortunate that teaching has always come naturally to me, I am very grateful that my degrees in music performance, music education, and instructional desi

"Best Guitar Teacher Around!!!

This guy makes learning guitar not such a daunting task. I have always wanted to learn guitar- and thought I was too old to start now- But after working with Ryan- I am confident that my skills will only grow and that some day I will be as good as he is :) His lessons are geared towards your specific needs- he creates a curriculum that is attainable. I really appreciate the personal approach he takes with his students and I look forward to continuing working with him. Great Teacher!!!"

"My 11 year old son has been taking guitar lessons from Grant for at least 6 months. We liked Grant's teaching style so much that we enrolled our 9 year old son for lessons as well. Grant keeps the lessons fun and interesting by choosing songs that they already enjoy to learn, while teaching fundamentals at the same time. He is patient when they may be having an "off" day, and he is extremely encouraging and positive in every single interaction. My boys think he's fun, and they've learned a lot from him."

"If you want a teacher who spoon feeds to you, this is not the teacher for you. If you want to actually learn and get to a place where you can explore on your own, Maria is wonderful. I personally wasted years going to teachers who would teach me exactly how I wanted but I couldn't do anything outside of lessons because I was never taught the foundation. Maria helped catch me up and now our lessons have turned into something I didn't know they could be. I'm learning new techniques and it's fun to apply them to the music I love. She's a positive teacher, but still strict. You will learn a lot."
