Classical is my specialty. I've taught for almost 15 years and can really help you reach your goals and become a better musician.

KIDS:
I also specialize in teaching kids classical guitar. Classical for your kids is the best way to get them learning real music and theory, developing the best possible technique and good habits, and literally changing their brain chemistry for the better! The foundations they establish with classical leads them to better playing of ANY style even if they don't stick with classical. I am contracted out and travel the nation teaching kids classical guitar and teaching teachers how to teach it, so I feel fully confident you're in the best hands you could be in if your child takes lessons with me.

ADULTS:
If you're just starting out, I will help you build a technical foundation first, playing through a "boot camp" of easy pieces to build sight reading and technical skills. When you're done with that you're ready to tackle some really cool ...

Initially, I received the quintessential guitar lessons, complete with classical guitar exercises. I then developed an affinity for classical guitar, but I couldn’t journey further into the style because my training was limited. I can happily say that I have not only been able to overcome my plateau but also found the teacher who can shape me into the guitarist I aspire to be. I’m being taught via video chat but the lessons are nothing short of insightful. Your dedication as a student with Jaxon will take you far. Take the first lesson and you’ll see!

Trevor is an amazing teacher. He is one of the best teachers I have come across for music, and I've had several. He has a near encyclopedic knowledge on almost all things music from composition to theory with a genuine interest in the material as well as teaching it. He is extremely patient, friendly, and kind of a nerd on several fronts, in the best, most awesome way possible I mean. If you want a truly comprehensive understanding of music from someone who knows what he is talking about and is fun to learn from, I'd say go with Trevor.

Hands down the best guitar instructor in St Louis.

Since retiring in 2006 I tried a few others but David brings expertise in not only guitar mechanics and virtuosity but an understanding of deeper musical principles and its application to the guitar student.

Dave is a true genius in the art of Guitar, no matter the musical genre - or -whether its Led Zepplin or Brouwer classical guitar method.he can't be beat.

Why TakeLessons?

Classical Guitar Lessons

The classical guitar, often referred to as the Spanish guitar, is the father of the modern-day guitar. Normally, the classical guitar is played with the fingers, rather than a pick, and uses nylon strings and a wider fretboard to allow for more complex fingering positions. The Spanish guitar has a beautiful rich tonal quality, and with proper technique, it creates an earthy yet romantic sound. Many instructors will teach you how to read classical guitar tabs, how to tune your guitar, proper classical guitar technique, Spanish guitar scales and will help you if you are looking at buying a classical guitar. In addition, our certified instructors here at TakeLessons are friendly and eager to help you learn to play the guitar. If you enroll in our classical guitar lessons, you will have the opportunity to learn and gain insight from seasoned professionals who love the classical guitar. Our mentors will be happy to share tricks and tips on how to play the classical guitar as well as provide you with the inspiration to continue working on your craft, especially since learning to play the instrument can be a bit challenging in the first few weeks. Check back here often as soon we will be posting articles such as “How Do I Choose a Classical Guitar,” “Easy Classical Guitar Music” and “Classical Guitar Tabs.” In the meantime, apply for classical guitar lessons in an area near you so that you can begin your new musical adventure.
