If you are new to the guitar, we will learn about the instrument itself. The different parts, and what they do. Also, how to care for it, so it will perform well for you. We will work hard to have you playing something as soon as possible, but not under pressure.

Soon after you begin, when things progress well, we will be learning a favorite song that you choose. We'll start out very basic. Probably just playing the tune one note at a time. Then we'll do the chords and then play it together.

My favorite part of teaching is seeing someone do well on their instrument. When the work pays off, and everything starts making sense to the student, and they are learning new things on their own.

I have a very practical approach to teaching guitar! I was taught how to play by ear first, at 2 years old and later studied music theory to connect the dots. I love to find patterns and predictability in music to make it easy to navigate through. If you feel like you wouldnt succeed in a traditional music lesson setting, join me for discovery, epiphanies and “Aha!” moments! I specialize in Worship Music and Worship band dynamics and theories however I strive to teach students exactly what they want to learn to encourage the idea that we tend to want to practice things we like or we’re good at! Let’s see what your strengths are and how to explore hidden talents to meet your goals!

I've been performing music for over 15 years. I've been teaching guitar for the past three years. I like keeping guitar fun! I will work with each student's individual needs and goals. I like all kinds of music and styles so don't feel embarrassed if you wanna learn a Taylor Swift song or Old Town Road. I like pursuing what the student is interested in while still teaching essential skills like strumming, note reading, chords, picking, etc. Reach out and lets chat about guitar!

About Luke

I grew up in Beaufort, South Carolina, picking up the guitar and bass at age 13. Before that, I had a strong interest in all types of music. After learning the basics on guitar, I formed a band in my tiny hometown, constantly learning and writing songs. For college, I went to Western Washington

"Nick是一个非常专业的音乐家,同时也是一名非常耐心的老师!比起“Guitar Lesson”,Nick的课程更贴切地来说是“Music Lesson”。Nick会根据你的需求量体裁衣,在吉他练习的基础上增加ear training和music theory的训练。让我很惊讶的是,Nick并不是按一个死板的课程大纲来进行教学,而是让你选你喜欢的乐曲,在此基础上展开讲解乐理,并增加即兴演奏的内容。总而言之,我很激动能跟Nick这样优秀的音乐家学习,很期待日后的合作!

Translated using Google

Nick is a very professional musician and also a very patient teacher! Compared to "Guitar Lesson", Nick's course is more appropriately "Music Lesson". Nick will tailor it to your needs and add ear training and music theory training on the basis of guitar practice. What surprised me was that Nick didn't teach according to a rigid syllabus. Instead, he asked you to choose the music you like, explain the theory of music on this basis, and increase the content of improvisation. All in all, I am very excited to learn from such an excellent musician as Nick and look forward to my future cooperation!
