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 ...

John S. Indianapolis, IN

I have been a professional musician and composer for many years and I have performed all over the U.S. The guitar is easy to learn and gives the player a chance to learn about herself or himself as well as entertaiining others.

What do you WANT to learn? Learning should always be fun, even when it is challenging. I try to find out what my student WANTS to learn and then integrate that desire into what must be mastered. I have taught at all levels in the Indianapolis Public Schools. I have taught Literature, Composition, and Sociology, to name a few subjects, at the college level.I hold a professionalized Indiana teaching license (expires 2025) and a Master’s degree in education.I have successfully taught at-risk students as they prepared for the GED and TASC high school equivalency, even setting school records for completion rates.

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.

About Jake

I'm Jake. Let me start by saying that I have been a music coach for over 18 years, and have had the privilege of guiding, to date, 1,422 clients to overcome their fears and truly succeed in their musical dreams. There are few things that I enjoy more than connecting with others and helping them to recognize their potential...then growing into it. Maybe you've never sang a note or even touched a guitar - or maybe you've been at it for awhile and are just unsure as to how you can improve upon your existing skills... Wherever YOU are... I'm here for YOU! This isn't my job - this is my PASSION THIS is what I care about. THIS is what I do. THIS is who I am. Helping YOU to see what's been locked away inside of you... Your. Creative.

Matthew S. Indianapolis, IN

I have been playing guitar for 7 years, but have never taught it. Don't worry though! I am currently getting my degree in music education (graduating in May 2015) and have taught violin lessons for many years. I am very comfortable with giving guitar lessons. Basic/advanced chords, strumming, flat-picking, and tablature reading are all things you can expect from lessons with me! Thank you for your consideration!

About Matthew

Hi! My name is Matthew and I have been studying music my entire life. I started playing the violin when I was 5 years old, and never stopped. Several years ago, I took up guitar, and am now proficient at both instruments. I studied music theory and ear training in college and will graduate with a degree in music education in May 2015. I am open to students of all ages and am very eager to help them learn all about music, whether it is playing violin or guitar, helping them prepare for an audition, or helping to further their love of music. Thank you for your consideration!
