Jamey F. Carmel, IN

About Jamey

I teach all styles and levels of guitar. I have taught for over 20 years including college courses, Montessori primary, and with special needs clients. Though I have a degree in Classic Guitar from CSU, Northridge, I consider myself primarily a songwriter and improviser. I released a fingerstyle record, 12 stone row, in 1999. I also played bass in The Language for 2 years in Indianapolis. In the last few years, I've been mastering pick-style and developing guitar learning systems. I plan to release a vocal record in 2015. *** Lesson Details *** To me, that you want to play guitar is proof that you can do it. Drive is central to your success, and learning to play well is a relatively simple process with precise learning systems. I customize curriculum for every student. I consider ...

Knowledgeable, Encouraging, Experienced

I came to her studio with no singing experience whatsoever. I was a little nervous to start singing in front of people, especially since I thought my voice had dried up for lack of use. But I felt totally comfortable from the very first lesson and I soon looked forward to singing every week!

After only a few short weeks with her guidance I have increased my range by a perfect fourth up and a major second down! My vocal control has greatly improved and now I KNOW I can sing confidently. Definitely recommend this instructor.
Todd L. Cicero, IN

About Todd

Music is my life, and is something that I want to share with others! Because of that, I try my best to give positive experiences to all of my students. I have a byline that says "Music is Much More than Just Learning Notes." I believe that! Anyone can learn notes, fingerings, etc. What I try to do is add that "soul" element that each person has and cultivate that into meaningful music! So, with all that said, here's what I try to instill: A lesson is a place to share! I listen to students as well as teach. We all have something we can learn from each other! While I want lessons to be fun and informative, I strive for complete understanding, which means any student will gain the needed mechanics with complete knowledge of why things happen and what they do to ...

Easy and convenient to use.

My son has taken voice and then piano from Todd for about two years. Todd has proven to be patient, flexible and enthusiastic about my sons thoughts, ideas and interests. He has developed a very encouraging relationship with his student and my son feels comfortable speaking honestly and openly with him. Todd is gifted at his craft and has a true teachers heart.

I'm not setting the world on fire but then I've only had three lessons, and I've had some personal issues. Todd has shown patience with me and no doubt he is aptly qualified as an instructor in a variety of ways.

I had a stroke and didn't remember much about any kind of music. John was patient, and stayed a little overtime, which made me feel guilty. I think he will actually get me playing music. He's a dear.
