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.

Charlie P.

Charlotte, NC

We will learn how to keep good tempo, lock in with a drummer and create your own lines to use with other musicians.

About Charlie

I have been passing on what I've learned in my own studies, personal and privately taught, to help new students get the strong foundations for becoming the best musician they can be. I've been playing since age 6 (now 44) and performing since 18. I started with Classical guitar, then Rock and Jazz. In all my years of study, I've learned how to teach and how NOT to teach. I have had many years of private lessons. I've written, recorded and performed for over 20 years. My wife and I even do voice over work on occasion.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students have become friends and I've seen man
y go on to become performers, songwriters and teachers. I also use a wide range of materials when teaching like DVDs, CDs, and computer 'play along' tracks. I love teaching, seeing people smile and enjoy making music. Music is like painting : I try to show students as many colors as I can and encourage them to create something of their own which others can enjoy as well.
I sometimes learn FROM my students as they present something they wish top learn but I must first figure it out before showing them how to play it. It's very give and take when I teach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
studio on second floor for lessons; chairs and equipment available; books, metronomes, music stands, cd players, cables and amps; acoustic & electric guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Rock and Jazz and appreciation of Classical
Expose students to music they normally don't listen to.
Guidance through improvisation and creative process.

Awesome

Charlie is not only a great teacher, but a great guy. he is fun and easy to be around, creating a relaxing environment for learning. Everything i know how to do on bass was made possible by Charlie. He is slow with the process and makes sure not to rush you and makes sure you understand 100% of the material before moving on. He is simply awesome.

Joey R.

Charlotte, NC

Basics

About Joey

Joey Rincon is a classical and spanish guitarist in the Charlotte and surrounding areas. He is a very friendly and compassionate musician, and is completely immersed in the music world. Naturally, he wants to share his love of music with his students, and his goal is to awaken the musical potential in his students. He's been on a journey with guitar for 15 years. As an instructor, he is gifted in providing inspiration to his students. Technique, expression, repertoire, sight-reading, music theory, and much enthusiasm describe the experience of studying the guitar with Joey.

Joey Rin
con has been honing his technique and artistry on the guitar for 15 years. He was born and raised in New York, where he was first introduced to classical music through the violin. Now, he is a music student of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where he continues on his musical journey as a classical guitarist.

Joey Rincon has studied classical guitar under the mastery of Derek Day at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and Charles Vaughn at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. His playing reflects his Spanish culture and background, while simultaneously being fueled by his unstoppable love for music.

During his studies on the classical guitar, he has worked with the music of Mauro Giuliani, Matteo Carcassi, Francisco Tarrega, J.S Bach, and much, much more. What separates Joey Rincon from other musicians is his unmistakable close attention to small details in music. From studying under masters in the field, Joey Rincon pays special attention to the basic musical components such as melody, rhythm, and harmony, while putting a tremendous amount of effort and thought into his tone production. His musical ideas are an exact reflection to how he views the world around him; a beautiful, adventurous, and emotional reality.

His repertoire is forever expanding, but focuses mostly on the Baroque and Classical Era, and Spanish music, particularly that of Antonio Lauro and Francisco Tárrega. Joey is not limited to the genre of Classical music- his roots are in blues and classic rock, alternative rock, and even metal. However, the enticing sound of the classical guitar has become his primary instrument in the last few years, and performs mostly that genre of music.

Joey is a very talented musician and he is an excellent teacher. He's very patient and I have learned something new with every lesson. I would definitely recommend Joey for a beginner or someone like me who already has some experience.

I purchased acoustic guitar lessons for my husband as a Christmas gift and he took his first lesson on January 2nd 2016. I accompanied my husband to his lesson and met Joey. He is a very nice and personable guy. My husband was very pleased with his first lesson and said Joey was an excellent teacher with a lot of knowledge and patience. My husband already knows the basics of guitar playing but had hit a roadblock and couldn't seem to go any further without some good instructions. Some people are good at playing but just don't have the skill and patience for teaching others but Joey does. Mu husband learned some new things with his first lesson and came with some homework. Way to go Joey!
