Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

About Peter

I currently compose music for TV, film and other digital media in my own recording studio. Prior to that, I spent about 25 years playing guitar, piano, bass and drums in bands and as a studio musician. At school I studied classical music (theory and composition) as well as orchestration and compute

I just started my second year of guitar lessons with Peter and I’m learning so much! Peter is a great teacher who is patient, encouraging and a great listener. He can “hear” the areas that I need to work on, and is able to clearly communicate ways for me to improve . He has helped me get better at my rhythm, my strumming, tempo and even an introduction to music theory. I’m now playing (and singing) some of my favorite songs! Highly recommend!

I understand it's easy to lose drive when you're constantly drilling scales and fingering. I try to frame all of my lessons in reference to what music really is: the creation of songs. Through composition, my students won't just learn scale and chord structure, but they'll organically develop these skills while writing their own songs and building their personal portfolio.

About Peter

Over the past 10 years, I've worked as a professional touring musician (singer, guitarist, pianist) for the rock band, Inside Switch. I studied piano at the Dallas, Texas School of Music. I also attended the James Madison University music program. I have played piano for 20 years and guitar for 15.

What I Learned From Peter.

- THE METRONOME IS SO IMPORTANT
- The voice guides the guitar if you’re more of a singer
- Repetition is key
- Practice songs that aren’t in your style to ease your way into guitar
- The power resides in strumming rhythmically
- Focus is more difficult that it seems when combining singing and guitar
- Guitar is an art in itself and itself you shouldn’t master guitar, you should be it’s friend.
- Open mics and video content are the key to more success as they expose you to criticism (good or bad)
Again, the guitar is your companion.

For any aspiring musician or any musician that needs guidance and improvement on the guitar, Peter is a great teacher.
Dhiraj
Peter is very patient and great teaching my 9yr old son. We take father and son lessons together which has been amazing. Peter is naturally talented and plays many other instruments all in from his home studio. He is also extremely flexible and accommodating. Highly recommended!

I offer Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons for electric, acoustic, and bass guitar. I have over 20 years playing and songwriting experience, including live shows, recordings, and tours; I've been lead guitarist for the metal band Locusta since 2006. I've been teaching guitar for 14 years and have had thousands of hours of teaching experience in that time.

Lessons are available on advanced topics such as music theory, songwriting, lead guitar technique, sweep picking, and classical guitar (i.e. Bach/Spanish guitar), as well as non-guitar specific subjects like home and studio recording, ear training, rhythm, and drum programming (no drum experience necessary). Personalized lessons are offered as well as structured 4 to 8 week courses on specific subjects.

I mainly specialize in rock and metal but enjoy listening to and teaching classical, jazz, (old)country, blues, funk, or almost any other kind of music. I play in a death metal band and my favorite guitar players range ...

Dru has been an awesome teacher. He is well versed in music theory, differnet play styles and an exceptional guitarist himself. it's hard to argue with 20 years of experience and it shows. He keeps me motivated and on top what I need to get better. Without his help and encouragement I wouldn't have learned so much in such a short time. If you're looking for a knowledgable, laid back teacher that will help and guide you to where you want to be, Dru is the teacher you're looking for.
Johnny
I always had a stigma when it came to taking lessons. For about four years, I'd watch YouTube videos and mess around, and thought I had made decent progress. Eventually, I decided to take one lesson to see how things would go. I found Dru through a friend, and didn't know really anything about him prior to reaching out. From the first phone call, Dru made a significant impact on my playing by lending me perspective and a way to look at the guitar that I had not heard before - and that was just during the initial phone call. Dru offered me a discounted lesson to see if it was a good fit, and I've had lessons with Dru nearly every week since - a bit over a year. The leap I've made during the past year plus almost seems unbelievable. I went from knowing parts of songs, no theory knowledge, and a limited repertoire of technique to knowing multiple songs all the way through, delving deep into the theory (which has allowed me to navigate the fret board rather than playing in boxes), and having way more tools in my technique toolbox. I've also been able to begin songwriting with Dru's help and playing with others regularly. Of course, you might be thinking that this sort of progression is possible with any instructor, but I'm not sure if I would have made such significant gains in this time if it weren't for Dru. He is excellent at understanding where you are exactly with your playing, and offering the right advice for what to do to get where you want to be. Just take a lesson with him, and you'll understand what I mean. Dru is a top-notch dude and makes for an excellent teacher.

Landon is a kind and knowledgeable teacher. His patience and broad experience with various aspects of music make him a great resource.
Avi
My gifted son needs challenging and stimulating activities to help him balance all of his feelings. I was extremely hesitant with signing him up because he is only 4. However he instantly connected with Landon and said he has a fantastic time. I absolutely love how Landon has a gift to communicate music without watering down terminology but slowly speaking so that children can understand. He truly has a gift. We look forward to the next one.

When the student is ready the teacher will appear and am I glad! This is working out great. Landon is knowledgeable, patient, and talented. Just what I need to expand my musical endeavors.

"Alex is a great teacher

I love taking lessons from Alex. At first I was skeptical about taking lessons via Skype but it really works great. It is such a time saver to be able to take the lessons from my home. Alex is very patient and always is prepared. I had been particularly interested in practicing guitar rhythms. He put together rhythm exercises in several keys for me to practice. He sends them to me in advance so I can practice. He is really good at letting me go my own pace while still pushing me to work on stuff that is not as easy. He is honest and isn't uncomfortable telling me I didn't stay on beat. However, his criticism doesn't make you feel bad or like a hopeless musician. My rhythm playing has vastly improved since I started taking lessons from Alex."

"Carla has escalated both my acoustic and electric guitar playing to unexpected levels, from just strumming songs to actually including licks, riffs, and leads to sound more like the pros.
with her experience and knowledge, she has filled in critical lapses in my musical theory. Later, I decided to learn short-scale bass, and Carla was right there to show me the way.
If you've EVER wanted to learn (or pick back again) any style of guitar, bass, electric, acoustic, keyboard, piano, ukulele, kazoo, (or whatever) contact Carla ASAP for lessons. She gives lessons to students all across the USA, ONLINE through Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, or any conference app you want to use, at your convenience, NEVER needing to drive through Jersey, and never needing to leave your home.
She custom tailors lessons to all levels. Great experience! Students even "Zoom" in to perform at her recitals on a big screen TV. Give her a call, she's the rare, amazing, patient teacher you've been searching for. You won't be disappointed."

Top 50 Intermediate Songs to Learn on Guitar

If you’ve been playing the guitar for a while, you’re probably ready to take on more intermediate material. The topic of intermediate electric and acoustic guitar songs and solos is a tricky one, because it means different things to different people. Some players learn certain techniques faster than others, and what is advanced to some is intermediate to others. In general terms, an intermediate guitar player will be comfortable playing open chords, barre chords, and basic scales. Guitar …
