John is very patient and knowledgeable. You can tell that he's been teaching for a very long time. I'm self-taught and have been playing for over 20 years and within minutes of viewing me play, John was able to pick out immediately my flaws. He gives me homework every week, and gives me a hard time if I do not do it. Exactly what I look for in a teacher.

Michael is an exceptionaly talented musician, as well as a wonderful mentor who has taught so many students and enriched their lives. He has students with only 2 yrs of experience who sound as if they have been playing for 20 years! What a Role Model!!! With a lifetime of experience under his belt, Michael has mastered music and recording. He will help you; It really doesn't get any better than that. I am a reporter for a good paper. I wrote this about Michael after an interview. Michael and his band had the placed packed, all ages, and everyone insisted on being as close to the music as humanly possible. Michael works as a guitar instructor and runs several studios. Michael is truly a "gifted guitar player" and his vocals are just as nice and polished. The Next time this gifted musician and band rolls into town check him out.

Jon S.

Concord, NC

Beginners can expect to start by learning how to hold a pick, play with their fingers, play common bass lines, simple techniques, simple songs, tune their bass, and learn basics of reading music. Intermediate students will learn how to play more advanced common lines, music theory, minor and major scales, how to read more complex music, how to write songs, singing while they play, more advanced techniques, and how to play more advanced songs. Advanced students will learn more in depth music theory, how to learn songs by ear, even more advanced techniques (tapping, artificial harmonics, etc.), very complicated songs, how to read very intricate music, and more complicated scales and modes. All lessons are tailored to the students learning speed and goals for their own playing

Referred to Jon by a friend. I knew within 2 minutes of meeting him we were going to be happy with our choice. I love to listen in while he is instructing my granddaughter. He is so patient and kind but yet firm enough to manage a beginning student and keep them motivated. My 12 year old granddaughter practices every day without prompting because he advised her that was an expectation. I would highly recommend him!

I hold a Masters Degree in Music, am a certified North Carolina Teacher, and have been playing the guitar for the past 15 years. We will figure out at what level you are currently playing within the first lessons and then decide together what you want to focus on. This is YOUR lesson, and I am here to guide you down the path that you choose.

Jonathan teaches my daughter and she has enjoyed her first set of lessons from him so far. She is in orchestra at her Middle School so the summer lessons have helped her improve her technique and when I listen to her practice I have noticed improvement in the sound. Scheduling was easy and he is flexible. It has been a great experience thus far.
