Highly recommended, very happy we found Jonathan! My daughter took to him right away, and learned a lot from him right from the start. The material he gave her to work on will be challenging for her, but not overwhelming, and she's excited to learn and progress.

I started playing acoustic guitar when I was seven years old. I have been playing and teaching mostly bluegrass, old time, Irish, blues, and swing jazz styles for many years. I have taught both privately and have also done various workshops at festivals. I have taught guitar multiple years for instance at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival in PA.
My students learn to have fun with music. Students can work on rhythms, melodies, improvisation, song writing, getting into and/or hanging on in a jam session, etc.

About Tara
I have a Masters in Education as well as having spent many years performing, teaching in one on one and group settings both privately and at music camps and festivals. I play and teach bluegrass, old time, Irish, and swing jazz styles. I like my students to really enjoy playing music and their lessons as well as learning to become fluent in the language of music. It is not required that folks learn to read music necessarily, but it can be a part of the lessons if desired. I love to see my students able to continue learning and playing on their own, be able to hold their own at jams and on the stage is they so desire, or just enjoy making music for themselves. I have techniques that have proven effective to help get past jam phobia, that help folks learn to improvise who have not had any luck with doing so before, and help getting away fro
m sheet music addictions to be able to have fun and confidence out at jams. I also can give a good foundation in music theory as it applies to one's actual playing and have it be fun and make sense.

You pick the song, you pick the artist. Whether you want to study founding artists like Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs and The Osborne Brothers or more contemporary artist like Bela Fleck we can study chords, scales and modes, picking styles, soloing and accompany techniques used in these wonderful songs! Don't forget, Chodosh Guitar private lesson students enjoy free group classes where you can try out these skills you're developing!

About Michael
Hi, I'm Michael Chodosh. I have been a professional guitar player my entire life. I love playing, writing, performing and I love teaching music. It's fun for us both. I use systems to bring the best out of my students. I think everyone is happier when they reach their own potential while staying in their heart. My job is to help you do that on guitar! With your playing, whether that's just some strumming and reading or if you want to play standards like a pro or even shred like a monster. I can help guide you there and inspire you to reach those goals that you presently might not even realize you can achieve!

Thank you for looking into lessons with me. You've either started or you're about to improve a wonderful relationship with music! - Michael.

I started taking lessons with Michal Chodosh to learn music theory and reading music. In the time I have worked with Michael, I have learned a lot. When I began lessons, I didn't know scales or modes, knew only basic chords and wasn't able to read sheet music. In addition to that, I was barely able to follow tablature. Michael has taught me about all of those items and more. Lessons with Michael are a lot of fun. There is always great interaction between students so that newer students can learn from both Michael and from other students while becoming comfortable with learning about the guitar. Deciding to take lessons from Michael was a great decision. I've thoroughly enjoyed learning how to play the guitar.

My introduction to Michael came when he sat in with a band I was playing with....I was so blown away by his playing, I ended up taking lessons from him.

Micheal has helped open up new frontiers in playing and theory for me without ever making me feel like a dummy for not knowing things. One of the best things about him is that his teaching style makes students feel comfortable, but also challenged.

Michael has the experience, patience, and knowledge to help everybody from beginners to working professionals learn and improve. Heck, he even taught me to sing my first legitimate vocal harmony.

Time with Michael Chodosh is time well spent!

Hello from Adam! My career has been an awesome mix of formal education, teaching and touring.

On the school side, I am a graduate of New York University's Music Business + Technology program.

I have been teaching since 2010, doing both private lessons as well as group and individual sessions at Denver's famed Swallow Hill Music. Part of my duties with Swallow Hill included working with their House Of Rock summer camp program instructing young adults in the 12-18 age range.

I am passionate about teaching guitar and someone that prides themselves on tailoring each lesson to the individual student by putting in the necessary time to prepare materials in advance. I don't have a one-size-fits-all "method" and strive to only provide helpful and applicable instruction. My comfort zone goes anywhere from kids just starting out to adults in working bands that need to add some tricks to their guitar ouevre.

I have been the subject of a full-page feature in Vintage Guitar magazine

About Adam
According to Vintage Guitar Magazine I am "looking to bring a new sound to instrumental guitar music" and that my original songs are "a memorable mix of country, jazz, rock and soul that transcends all genres." As a sideman, my resume includes numerous tours with national acts and I've also had songs on SiriusXM Radio.

And I love teaching and sharing my knowledge of music! My teaching background has been with all ages and all levels of students. I've had great success with getting beginners off the ground and helping them play the music they enjoy. Nothing is off-limits whether it be pop songs, fingerpicking, metal anthems, country pickin', jazz standards, blues improvisation -- you name it.

I don't have a "method" but rather tailor our sessions to your individual needs. Everyone is different and I spend the time preparing material
that works for YOU.

Nic was great, I wanted to learn some kind of obscure stuff and he was super quick to figure out how to play the song and then teach me. He has a wide variety of styles and was very patient during the learning process of a song or riff. Definitely gonna keep going to him so I can shred and kick like Yngwie!

Do you want to play exactly what you want right away? Good! That is what I aim to do with all of my students. I want to know what you want to be able to do with your instrument and then that will guide us through the learning process.

If I specialize in anything it is helping my students connect the dots of music. From the ear, to the mind, to the fingers.

First and foremost, though, I think that finding the right teacher for you is important. You have to develop a solid relationship. Liking your teacher cannot be overstated for most people to make progress. If we get on well then the sky is the limit!

About Hudson
Hello!

My name is Hudson and I have been playing guitar for over 15 years! Music is my passion and if you are looking for someone to help you make sense of this wonderful thing called music and express that on the guitar then I want to help you.

I grew up in Southern California where I picked up the guitar at age 15. Mostly because my dad listened to a lot Santana and Led Zeppelin. After digging to classic rock and hard rock (from the 60's to the 90's) I got into all of the guitar heroes (Satriani, Vai, Malmsteen, Rhoads, Wylde, Gilbert, etc..) Then I found country guitar and have been digging into that the last few years.

If you love guitar and music in general and want to increase your technique, theory knowledge, or any of the ins and outs of playing with a band, or even what type of pick to use then I would love to help y
ou!

All my best,

Hudson

Hudson is an extremely patient teacher. His passion for music shows through the way he teaches. Having never picked up a Guitar before, by the end of the hour I was sharing the same dedication Hudson has for music. My biggest issue has always been coordination with my fingers and hands. He taught me how to be patient with myself and pay close attention to the placement of my fingers. I would highly recommend Hudson, he will definitely help you reach your goals with music and make you an overall better guitar player!
