Private Bluegrass Guitar Teacher

I always listen carefully to what you are interested in playing and learning about music, and will provide you with the tools to play guitar or banjo the way you want to as quickly as possible. I teach a variety of styles including flatpicking and finger picking for both blues and bluegrass.

My goal is to develop your ability to play any genre or style you want, and to enable you to find an emotional connection with your instrument and your music.

I am well versed in music theory, improvisation, composition, technique, and instrument maintenance and care, and have several years experience teaching.

About Justin

I have been playing guitar since I was 12 years old, and I remember how awful my music teachers were at the time. I strive to do better than they did by truly listening to what you want out of music and giving you the tools to accomplish your goals. I love music and teaching and bring passion and e

Bluegrass has progressed beyond guitar for me and has now moved into mandolin and banjo studies. There are so many cool licks and sounds!

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient

Successfully teaching current students with clear, concise lessons.

All of my current students have developed confidence and enthusiasm to learn all materials presented in an easy to comprehend format.

Each student learns at different levels so all lessons are customized to challenge them but also insure they learn and retain all materials presented to them.

Currently have 16 students ranging from beginners to advanced level.
When selecting a teacher, make arrangements to meet in person to review short and long term goals of learning a musical instrument. Pricing should only be used as the last criteria before making a final decision. It's important to insure your instructor is patient and willing to challenge students to setup a practice routine that will fit their current schedule.

If a student needs an instrument, have instructor give recommendations based on the musical styles they are interested in learning.

Students often ask how long it will take to learn to play a Guitar.

About Alejandro

Alejandro is a great instructor, really knowledgeable and motivational. I started lessons with him as a beginner and I have made a lot of progress.
Elizabeth
Alejandro is a marvelous teacher of music, the guitar specifically, to my 3 grandchildren every Saturday and now for getting onto a year. They love it and are learning ever so much! He is a most talented musician, himself, and has a way of transferring all of that to the 2 boys and my granddaughter. He is reliable and punctual and a treasure to have the opportunity to have him teach the children. I studied the piano for 15 years when I was young, so know a lot of what I speak

Like any good teacher should be, Alex is patient and very instructive. He can cover a variety of musical styles and ability levels. I would recommend him to anyone.

Music lessons from Jameson Burton don't simply teach you an instrument. You learn music. There is no other instructor that I hold in such high regards in terms of teaching the whole student. If you want to learn to be a musician and go beyond simply learning to play an instrument, then study under Jameson Burton.

Great teacher! We were so happy to have found Alex.
Leander
Alex is a terrific instructor, who adjusts lessons based on what the student wants to accomplish. For example, my goals include learning the instruments (baritone uke in octave mandolin tuning and concert uke in mandolin tuning), fingerpicking, playing both melody lines and chords, being able to determine what chords to use without sheet music. So we work on music theory and ear training a lot, as well as learning tunes. Very good instructor who is both flexible and knowledgeable...highly recommend him to others.

Energetic, patient,full of praise. Straightforward discussion of music theory which is very helpfull

Guitar is one of the best instruments to write music with and accompany yourself or others. I will teach the basics of the instrument so you have a good foundation to build on. After this is established we can focus on the style you are interested in and learn songs in that style. I have been a songwriter for many years and will gladly help you to start composing your own songs on the guitar. Guitar can seem intimidating I will help you break it down to be able to play your favorite songs.

7 Easy Bluegrass Songs on Guitar

Even beginners can start playing a little bluegrass guitar. Music teacher Matthew K. shares a selection of his favorite easy bluegrass guitar songs... When I first listened to bluegrass music, I knew I had to learn the guitar parts. They are very intricate and fun! The patterns weave in and out of each other, creating a sound that is unique to the genre. It can be a daunting sound for any beginner - and it may seem impossible at first - but remember, everyone has to start at the beginning …
