Beginner
Learn the basics of rhythm and tonality, as well as how they apply to your instrument. Then use those tools to learn the music you're interested in.

Intermediate
Learn about common variations of the tonalities you already know and start to venture into more complex rhythm ideas like polyrhythms. Also start to build the chops to learn parts more accurately when learning songs.

Advanced
Expand into more complex polyrhythms as well as asymmetrical meters. Also expand harmony and melody to include modes and chromaticism. Push your skills through original creations or original arrangements of existing material.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

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

In starting guitar, students will be first shown basic fundamentals of guitar such as how to properly tune their instrument with a tuner so they will always be able to hear their guitar correctly. Learning simple melodies of songs for the average beginner guitarist serves itself to be the first useful method of great fretboard familiarity and to acquire dexterity. Basic beginner chords are then taught to learn to play a few of their favorite songs in a simple format as well as basic power chords that are most commonly used in rock songs. As the student progresses to an intermediate level, songs that more closely relate to the students' original goals will be incorporated into lessons and the students' home practice routine (which serves a great purpose in order to develop the skills to attain their musical goals). At this level, students will also become introduced to ear training and learning more complex melodies by ear. At an advanced level, students can expect to learn far more ...

For intermediate guitarists, this scale is essential, but it’s also important to understand that scales are merely the alphabet of the blues language. It's important to go beyond that and play real blues melodies as well, so you can start to better understand …
