Baltimore, MD

View Full Profile

Classical guitar is warm, rich, and beautifully complex. It is a self-contained artform which needs no accompaniment. Classical guitar music is instantly gratifying, even at the beginner level. To unlock your highest potential, I'll help you learn proper picking as well as fret hand technique, sight reading, music theory, and fretboard logic. We will also study and learn chord voicings, voice leading, ear training, and sight-singing.

My teaching style is friendly, patient, and inclusive. I believe in a well rounded teaching approach through reading, as well as learning to play by ear.
I prefer to use these books for reading and developing good technique:

Aaron Shearer Classic Guitar Method vol. 1 and 2
Classical Guitar Duets: Charles Duncan
Franz Wohlfahrt Violin Etudes: 60 Studies
Frederick Noad Classical Guitar Technique, vol. 1 and 2
Matteo Carcassi: 25 Melodic And Progressive Studies
Andres Segovia: Twenty Studies For Guitar
Giuliani's 120 Studies For Right ...

About Jason
Hi, I'm Jason. I've been teaching and performing as a full time career for 23 years. During that time, I've developed a diverse, flexible approach to teaching that is customized to the needs and interests of each of my students. I'll help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve them.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to help you unlock your full musical potential by tailoring your lesson experience to your unique interests and goals. Your lessons will be a balance of technique and creativity. My studio is equipped with pro sound gear and software so we can incorporate drum sounds, keyboards, bass, and guitar into your lessons.
I encourage all of my students to read standard notation, but it isn't necessary if you would prefer to learn by ear.

*** Specialties ***

-I'm
comfortable teaching most styles, including R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Funk, Rock and Metal. I try to encourage all students to learn the basics of music theory, so you can understand the music you learn.

-I use a wide range of method books. I also use books that I have authored, which have been used in music programs in Baltimore area private schools and charter schools.

Jason tailors the course to a student's individual learning pace and needs. There is also a good combination between theory and learning cords to play a song. Technique is emphasized to build good habits and a foundation for future growth.

My services provide you with an opportunity to learn from a balance state of thinking to achieve success in your goals for the chosen instrument. Whether its technique, learning how to read both musically and literally, my teaching methods are very self reflective and introspective to provide the understanding you're looking for. All in all my sessions are very people friendly and driven to meet your needs. This helps to learn on a deeper level so that you may appreciate, learn faster and enjoy a greater sense of awareness for the fun of the music making process. I have a very warm and easy going approach with an emphasis on FUN so that we can connect to what we love to do which is make music.

My passion is educating the musicians of tomorrow and helping them discover their innate musical abilities and desires.

*** Les
son Details ***
My lessons are very student driven and revolve around developing students innate music abilities to help them connect and experience success as well as enriching their lives with music. In my lessons students will develop music appreciation skills by listening to music, understanding basic music theory concepts, growing a knowledge of historical awareness in music all alongside learning the instrument of their chosen preference. The pace set for the sessions is rather relaxed and is highly dependent on the student but, students are guided throughout the sessions to eventually achieve their goals. My main teaching approach is: Let me use my skills and knowledge to help figure out what works best for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The home studio lessons take place in the living room or a finished garage with tile floor. Seating is available in both areas. Parking is on the street. He has an upright piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music as well as they can provide music as well. I can provide a music stand. They need to provide the necessary equipment that allows their instrument to function

*** Specialties ***

Chicago, IL

As much as possible, I like to let students set their own course for learning on the instrument. Whether that means learning all the scales and modes, or learning covers of Bob Dylan songs, whatever is most interesting to the student will be our main subject for lessons. My job is to get students from where they are, to where they want to be as quickly as possible.

About Robert
Hello! My name is Bobby. I teach general music in a CPS school, and I have taught guitar lessons privately for over 5 years. I studied classical guitar and music education at Valparaiso University, and have my Masters Degree in Urban Education from National-Louis University. I grew up playing and teaching in many styles - Nirvana songs, classical preludes, Iron Maiden... the list goes on.

I got my first guitar as a Christmas present when I was 8 years old, and it changed my whole life. I love helping young students get started on the path towards being a life-long learner and lover of music. But I enjoy teaching students of any age, and have had students from 8 years old to 30 years old.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to working with you!

Robert is a patient and kind teacher. He is dedicated to learning and helping his students. I had the goal of learning a Gypsy Jazz song on guitar for a local performance. He devoted the time to understand and learn the music, which he was not familiar with at first presentation, in order to teach me and aid in my betterment. We had fun with it and the performance went well. His musical capabilities go beyond guitar, of course, and this shines through with the time I spent with him in and outside of the actual lesson.
