You will also learn how to use plugins, and the fundamental effects used on tracks (EQ, compression, reverb, delay) and other 3rd party plugins (Waves, Kontakt). Understanding how to edit tracks, gain stage, and get a wide and deep stereo image will also be crucial, and you will learn how to mix and master your songs to get it sounding as professional as possible.

I have a drum kit, keyboards, microphones, and guitars we can use to practice recording audio, and many software programs to record software instruments.

My 10 year old wanted to learn how to play the electric guitar. We found Kory through take lessons and hes happy we did. He has made good progress in the time hes been going. We will keep going back for more lessons. He really enjoys the lessons.
Saul Hernandez
If you are looking to learn how to play guitar, look no further. Kory is an excellent teacher and takes his time showing you how to break down complex skills. He is super patient I’ll tell you that forsure. Im a very slow learner and it really sucks but Kory reassured me that everyone has different paces and we shouldnt compare them. Ive definitely improved a lot with just 10 sessions.

Kori's awesome! Learned so much in the first lesson. Looking forward to continuing!

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.

About Chris

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. The best lesson that I've learned is that we're never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument then you've stopped growing. I've also learned that I enjoy sharing

The learning experience with Chris is top notch, never an issue with communication or punctuality.Always able to move around his busy schedule for the "adult" student.

"My son learned how to effectively play in a band

My son has been taking guitar lessons from Tim for over a year now. I have been very pleased with the progress my son is making. Tim makes my son feel very comfortable, and is more than willing to work with him in any area where he shows an interest. Tim is personable and patient.

Tim is quite flexible with time. He has kindly worked around our schedule whenever necessary. His fees are quite reasonable, and he always errs in our favor in regard to time.

Tim is a great guitar player himself with a true love for the instrument, which shows in his teaching. He was invaluable in helping us pick a reasonably priced, yet quality guitar for our son.

He has taught our son any song my son hears on the radio note for note a real gem.We are quite pleased with Tim's teaching, and highly recommend him."
