Kevin has been a guitarist for more than 28 years. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Oklahoma City University earning a Bachelor of Music degree in classical guitar. He went on to earn a Master of Music degree in classical guitar performance from the University of North Texas.

Kevin has been fortunate enough to have studied with some of the world's foremost classical guitarists. In addition to instruction from Tom Johnson, professor of guitar at UNT, he has studied privately for a number of years with Christopher McGuire, a pupil of Andres Segovia and a very well respected member of the guitar community. With the help of these mentors, Kevin was able to perform in master classes of numerous world famous classical guitarists, including Manuel Barrueco, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, Jason Vieaux and Pepe Romero.

"Kevin has demonstrat

solo artist and as a member of various guitar ensembles. He has served
as guest performer/lecturer for colleges in Oklahoma and Texas, and has

many styles of guitar playing. He has performed with numerous rock
bands as lead guitarist, and is also half of the acoustic guitar duo Almost Spanish.

*** Lesson Details ***
FUN AND EFFECTIVE. My lessons are always tailored to the individual student, but all students learn music theory in addition to guitar. I am thorough, but not overly strict. And don't worry, it won't feel like homework.

I believe that music lessons should be fun for the student. If you enjoy the lessons, you will more likely enjoy practicing and will therefore achieve better results. So I make sure to include songs and tricks that the student really likes in the curriculum.

I use a variety of methods, depending on the student.

Within 6 months, my guitar students can expect to have a strong understanding of basic music theory and how to apply that knowledge to the guitar. They will know how to read music in both guitar tablature and standard notation. If they have practiced, they will be able to play complete songs that have been chosen along the way. More advanced students will find that they have improved technique, improved accuracy and control, improved tone, and stronger improvisational skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is comfortable, and fully equipped with all the necessary tools for great lessons, including amps, cables, effects pedals, and audio/video recording equipment for those who wish to have a recorded copy of their lessons.

*** Specialties ***
The majority of my expertise in in classical guitar and electric rock guitar.

I teach all popular music styles including Blues, Rock, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass, Latin American Styles. I can teach you to read by notes and/or by chords based on your preferences and styles you choose to pursue. I like to give a solid foundation to all beginners learning to read music and basic music theory and as they progress I will concentrate more on elements that are more important for the style you prefer. I am flexible in my approach as I know the most important ingredient for a student's success in music is for the student to be motivated to play more by enjoying the lesson and the practice time. I'll work with you to make it learning fun!

About Ricardo
I have been a professional musician and teacher all my adult life. Music is my passion and has always been how I make a living. I teach piano/keyboards, guitar, voice, bass and ukulele. I studied classical piano at SUNY at Buffalo and I initially learned to play guitar and singing on my own. Years later I studied voice and guitar with great professional instructors. I am familiar with different ways of learning music: from very structured and traditional methods (that we use in classical music) to more improvisational and "by ear" approaches as we often do in popular music. This helps me tailor my music teaching specifically to each student based on his/her musical preferences, abilities and learning style. I can teach all styles of music including: Pop, Rock, Blues, Country, Bluegrass, Jazz, many different Latin styles including Salsa, B
olero and Bossa Nova.
I have performed all over the US and toured many countries including Mexico, Canada, Argentina, Uruguay, England and France. I have recorded more than 100 CDs for many artists (as well as my own original music) as a pianist/keyboardist, singer, guitarist and music producer. I have won many awards including most recently the Best Blues Band award as the pianist, guitarist and singer for the Lionel Young Band at the International Blues Challenge (the largest competition of blues bands in the world).
I have taught music through my whole career. Many of my students have gone on to study music as a career and have become successful professional musicians.
I am very comfortable teaching all levels from professional musicians to very beginners at any age.
I currently lead and perform with my group. We perform concerts, private events and some club work. My life as a professional musician has given me a lot of knowledge to share with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I adjust my approach based on what you want to learn, always with an emphasis on learning as much as possible while making the lessons fun and enjoyable. If you are a beginning piano/keyboard or guitar student I can teach you the basics of how to read music and how to play chords in the first few months and then we can decide whether you are interested in playing written music or more improvisational styles. I use different method books depending on the student and sometimes I use just my teaching materials if you are only interested in improvisational styles like Rock or Blues guitar or piano (for example). If you are a voice student, I teach with a combination of learning songs you like and using a CD/MP3s of vocal exercises that help develop good vocal technique. Whatever your instrument and musical preference you can be sure we'll have fun and you'll be making music from the very start!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha upright piano and keyboards. I have acoustic and electric guitars, bass and amps. I have Shure Sm-58 mics to teach microphone technique with.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student must have his/her own instrument and metronome (or equivalent) must purchase course book(s) if needed..

*** Specialties ***
I teach different styles depending on the students goals. I can teach a traditional classical style for those interested in classical music and I can teach more practical approaches for popular music such as learning by chords (for instrumental students- not voice obviously) and learning improvisation through scales, arpeggios and music theory.

On top of being a great piano, voice, and guitar teacher, Ricardo is a brilliant musician with a varied and rich musical history. I came to Ricardo looking to improve on my classical piano skills, and ended up learning blues piano and some great techniques for learning how to play popular songs on the piano. He also helped me with voice and guitar.

I found Ricardo's lessons to be engaging, mentally stimulating, challenging, and fun. When I was playing blues piano, he would jam along with me on the guitar to help me get better at playing with others, and not just solo. He did the same thing for me when teaching me on the guitar as well, it was a blast! He pushed me to be a better musician in general - I came to him with a very narrow focus and he broadened my musical horizons. Thank you Ricardo for helping me become a better piano player, vocalist, and guitar player!

Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

About S. Parker
Music became my life when I found a dusty guitar in the storage room at age 10. I owe a lot of really cool experiences to the guitar and so many of them center around learning. Teaching is fun and rewarding, but it is also my way of thanking the great teachers I've had.

-Studied Music Theory/Composition at Metropolitan State College of Denver

-Won a scholarship to the 2001 Summer Guitar Program at Berklee College of Music in Boston

-Frequent substitute at Arapahoe Community College (2004-2005)

-Teacher at St. Mary's Academy Middle School (2008-2013)

-Active member of Onsombley guitar ensemble

-Songwriter, Vocalist, Guitarist in The Penny Dreadfuls

-Creator of http://strumbystrum.com

-Takelessons teacher since 2008

*** Lesson Details ***
The best lessons I've ever had were lessons in wh
ich I walked away saying "Man, I never KNEW that!" and it's my goal for you have that experience, too. Whether its how to play that chord or write a melody, how to get the best sound out of those stomp boxes, or when genres like shoegazer and post-rock were invented and what they sound like... there's something to be learned in every lesson.

The most important benefit of taking lessons from me is my experience. I started teaching casually as a teenager and have followed every opportunity since. My passion for music has allowed me to teach private lessons (10+ years), middle school guitar class (including a guitar ensemble), and college-level music theory classes. Extensive experience in writing, recording, and performing has only helped that passion to grow. I've developed a method to blend theory with practice every step of the way, and make the journey fun!

Parker is a great teacher & a really nice guy. I have been working with him for about 18 months, and I have come a very long way in my technical ability as well as my understanding of music theory. He has a very low key, positive approach to our lessons, which makes them relaxing and fun, but at the same time he has the ability to get me out of my "comfort zone" and doing things that are new and challenging, from dabbling in different genres to creating new arrangements of old favorite songs to diving into the theory behind iconic riffs and chord progressions.
He has become a friend and I look forward to all of our online sessions.

About Diego
I'm a very passionate and energetic individual who enjoys working with motivated and energetic students of all ages. Whether an absolute beginner or a more advanced player, we can work on and refine your style depending on your aspirations and goals.

Style: I teach primarily classical and acoustic guitar focusing on contemporary as well as older styles. From Renaissance to Baroque, 18th century and modern, each lesson will be tailored to your needs and ability.

It is important to develop a good right and left hand technique, whether finger-style or by using a pick. It's also important to focus on sight-reading both notation and tab (depending on your level), that way you'll be able to learn songs a lot faster and easier. We will work on ensemble music and practice, so that playing with others is not a completely unknown experience f
or you.This will also make you grow not only as a guitarist, but also a musician. Performance practice is something that you'll be doing for the rest of your life, therefore performance anxiety is something that affects you both physically and mentally. For that matter, we will focus on maintaining a good posture while playing, that way you can give your best performance while playing.

Lessons: I teach primarily from home, and travel to students' homes when I have to. I have my own guitars, amplifiers and gear. Although I do ask the student to bring the following:

Notebook and a pencil (not pen)
Music stand
tuner

I can provide the sheet music/tab initially, although it's important for the student to purchase his own materials eventually.

Specialties: I focus primarily on three methods (although not exclusive).

1. The Principles of Correct Practice for Guitar
2. Pumping Nylon
3."Bridges" guitar series by the Royal Conservatory

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best Regards,

Diego C.

Over the past seven years, I have had three different guitar teachers. Karney is by far my favorite. The thing that really sets him apart is that he made me love playing guitar. I liked it before, but Karney actually taught me what I wanted to learn. This motivated me to practice the songs and eventually allowed me to play guitar at several weddings, both with Karney and by myself. He always goes the extra mile in my instruction by looking on his own time for cool new songs we can play. I know going into every lesson that I will have a good time and learn something new.
