Stacey created an environment that was extremely conducive to learning. She is not only very knowledgeable but she presents information in an easy and relaxing manner. Being a novice I did not feel overwhelmed or intimidated by what she asked of me. Very quickly she was able to discern where to take the lesson that instilled the greatest confidence and yet focused on the most immediate opportunities for moving forward. She’s fun, enthusiastic, and informative and made an hour lesson seem like fifteen minutes. I look forward to working with her in the future. I would strongly recommend her.

Jon A.

Cincinnati, OH

About Jon

I have been playing guitar since the age of 9. I have studied Classical, and Jazz at CCM's Prep Dept. in middle school and throughout high school as well as rock, folk, country etc. with other local teachers. I started teaching lessons at the age of 18 in local music stores and have never stopped. While doing this I attended The College of Mount St. Joseph where I studied Classical and Jazz guitar as well as Music Ed. In addition to my 22 years of private lesson experience, I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching general music in elementary schools. I believe it is my years as a s
tudent and instructor that enable me to be an effective teacher, having had learned what worked for me as a student, and what has shown to work as a teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
I cater my lesson to the individual. I like for students to have a structured practice routine and working knowledge of music and their instrument, but it has to be fun. I have students who learn Classical, rock, and Jazz. Each lesson is different. Some people just want to be able to play their favorite songs by a camp fire, and others want to go on to perform at Carnegie Hall. I enjoy teaching both lessons and put forth the same enthusiasm for each one. You get out of the guitar or bass what you put into it in terms of learning and practicing. The level of achievement is up to you, I will help guide you to meet your goals regardless of how large or small they are.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Spare music room: guitars, amps, bass; computer with recording software, ProTools seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have all the equipment necessary. I would like the student to have an instrument, but if not I can provide one for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I'm really pretty versatile. Over 18 years of teaching anywhere from 80 to 100 students a week will do that.

Cincinnati, OH

About Todd

About Guitar Lessons With Todd

"Todd is a very gifted and motivated guitarist with an uncommon aptitude for teaching."
Rodney Stucky

"Todd is passionate about teaching, and dedicates himself to this with utmost energy and purpose. He is always extremely successful in producing a high level of achievement with every student." Jeffrey Van

One of the most important duties of a competent instructor is teaching students how to practice. This is just as true for the rank beginner as it is for the advanced student, or even professional. Everyone can learn to play music and play it well if
given competent instruction. Learning to play well is learning about the mind and body, and how to use it to one's potential. As the awareness of the self is refined, not only is the playing improved, but the potential for greatness is elevated. Learning to perform music with security and confidence is fun!

Chrissy L.

Cincinnati, OH

About Chrissy

I have been teaching private lessons for 15 years. I taught mostly beginning students in 5th grade and then continued with them as they progressed through high school. I also have taught adult students who were new or returning to the cello. In addition to private cello lessons, I also direct an after school string orchestra comprised of all beginning students. The students play violin, viola, and cello. I have also coached ensembles and sectionals for middle school and high school string orchestra students. I love music and I have found my calling to be teaching others to also love and
appreciate music. I enjoy working with students of all ages and levels to find ways to help them learn and enjoy playing music.

I loved taking lessons from Chrissy! She was my favorite teacher I've had! We would have fun even while she corrected my form and taught me new pieces. She was hard on me, made sure I practiced and generally made me a much better player. She charged less than most teachers and taught more than any other teacher I've had. I would strongly recommend her for any cello student looking for a great teacher!
