With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best. I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!

Johah is very patient and flexible. He identifies and is willing to work on techniques, such as barre chords, in a way that finally helps me to stop the buzzing! I am looking forward to working with him.

My 15 year old son has been taking virtual guitar lessons with Jonah and has loved it. Jonah is a great teacher who really gets on my son’s level and connects. It’s a fun thing for him to do during this strange year.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have over 10 years of experience playing the acoustic guitar, and have played in several bands, and in numerous concerts. You can expect to learn how to play the basic chords and progressions, and learn good hand techniques to improve your playing.

In addition, we can learn any songs you want to learn, and I'll show you how to approach them to get the best results. Other techniques we may learn along the way include hammer ons and pull offs, palm muting, alternate picking, bends, slides, tapping, and soloing, depending on your skill level, and progression throughout our lessons.

I have a steel string and nylon acoustic guitar, and if you don't own one, you can use one of my guitars for the duration of the lesson.

Very nice and relaxed environment. Kory is knowledgeable and lets his experience do more talking than his words. You can tell he has spent his life playing music and his casual approach to teaching is good for beginners like me.
Addison B.
My son has just had his 1st lesson and he's ecstatic, he asked when he could take his next lesson; fortunately, Kory could get him in for another lesson this week.
I'm pleased that he's excited to finally learn to play his guitar.

What a patient, knowledgeable teacher. I really forward to a music journey with him.

I have taught guitar since 2012 and have been playing since 2000. I am happy to take students at the beginner and intermediate levels. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

About Ben

Hi, there! My name is Ben and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have taught students of all ages from 3 to adult. I have experience not just with teaching but also with writing, recording, and performing music in successful bands and on multiple instruments

Fantastic, patient and kind ukelele instructor. I recommend Ben without reservation.
Thanks Ben!
Kamal
Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).

Joe is a great teacher and very accomplished guitar player. My skills have increased so dramatically over the last 18 months under his instruction that I'm kicking myself for not finding him sooner!

My method is centered around having my students consistently learn new material, while retaining what they have learned. I’m sensitive to making sure they are challenged while also giving them material that will enable them to succeed. I customize each lesson to meet the needs and interests of each student. An example of a 45 minute lesson commonly includes the first 5 minutes being dedicated to checking in on how the practice went, and answering any questions the student may have about the material. Then there would be 15 minutes of review which would consist of finding which parts of the material are most challenging and finding the most effective way for the student to practice those parts and perfect the material. After that, there would be a three minute pause during which the student would listen to the new piece (whether it be material I introduced or material they suggested) so they can write down everything that they enjoyed and perceived about the new piece. Then there ...

I can not say enough good things about David. HIs lessons are well thought out , special and geared towards the individual. His exceptional training really comes through during the lesson. More importantly, David's love of music is infectious and the lessons seem to fly by. I am most impressed with David's patience and enthusiasm when giving lessons to my son. My son has excelled under his guidance which is no small feat considering my son's substantial learning disabilities. That is perhaps David's biggest strength. David worked with my son to come to a teaching method that my son could comprehend and excel under. I am truly impressed and very grateful for the extra time and care he takes to make my son's lessons meaningful. I am available to address any questions a potential student may have . David is THAT good !!
Jamie Freimauer
David is such a talented and skillful musician who has re-inspired my guitar playing journey! He is a patient and encouraging technical teacher. In addition, in each lesson, he brings well-rounded information about the music, the artist, and guidance for feeling the emotion of the music. I highly recommend him for any level student!

"Dave is amazing. My daughter (10) is a beginner guitar player (1 year experience) and having a blast with Dave. Dave is an inspiration. He makes it fun to learn, and custom creates books for her, using music she loves. He is so thoughtful about how to rewrite songs in order to teach the skills and music theory she needs at her level. She loves practicing and looks forward to every class. It's also super convenient that Dave comes to our house, and having an hour long lesson means they can cover a lot of ground. We all love listening to them jam from the other room! Cannot say enough about Dave. He is amazing!!!"
