Sight-reading Mozart can be a bit intimidating. I can help. Everything from positioning your fingers to reading single notes and complex poly-chords.

I have experience playing a lot of piano concertos on guitar as well as an extensive background in music theory. I'm ready to help you discover your limitless potential.

About Jason

His goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

This year Jason was also the Music Director at the National Guitar Workshop Day Jams Rock Music Day Camp where students ages 7-15 came out to form bands, record original material and master their craft. He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwri
ting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one on one sessions with Jason is learning the ability to craft and record your own songs using state of the art technology that caters to your own unique personality. There are no limits!

Jason teaches all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced as well as artists that are signed to labels.

Local news outlet Fox 5 did a segment with one of his students who overcame issues with ADD and depression as a result of taking guitar lessons.

His students advance quickly, some have released albums, been in Guitar World Magazine as well as its online companion and won awards for their music websites.

*** Lesson Details ***
Private guitar lessons, are you interested in learning how to play the guitar? Do you want to have fun and learn to play the music that you enjoy while doing so? What if I told you that not only is this possible, but that you could do so in the comfort of your own home?
My name is Sean S, guitarist of Sean and Karen. I have been teaching guitar for over 25 years. During this time I ha
ve had hundreds of students, many who have gone on to successful careers in their own right.
My philosophy is simple. I believe that anyone can learn to play and instrument if they have the right teacher. The right teacher is one who inspires and encourages the student not belittles or discourages. Because if it’s not fun why do it right? So go on, now is the time to try something that you've always wanted to try. Let’s rock!

Sean's Review

My husband, friend, and I are taking guitar lessons with Sean. At our first lesson, we were all pretty nervous and worried it would be difficult, or we wouldn’t be able to pick it up quickly; however, Sean was extremely patient with us and walked us through the basics effortlessly. His teaching style is motivating, fun, and inspirational. We look forward to many more lessons with Sean!

· Blues Guitar · In studio
Heading into my first class with Tim, I had almost no musical experience (at least for the last 15+ years). In a very casual way, he was able to get a sense of where I was and where he should start with my instruction.

I was very reluctant to take lessons at first, but my wife got me started with Tim and it was really worth it. He was accommodating to my relatively slow speed of learning and easily adapted to my own musical preferences and interests.

His studio is a great space and is located within a really cool, historic building. The sound is fantastic and it's a comfortable space to practice in.

I highly recommend Tim for lessons - especially for adults who may not be able to dedicate hours a day to practicing. I took lessons weekly for three months and I got a great foundation for practicing. Once my life settles down a little, I definitely hope to go back.

I have my Bachelor's in Music Education. Before attending Hartt College, I had played guitar for 12 years and studied Classical guitar prior to attending. During my time at Hartt, I maintained my studies of Classical Guitar and continued to teach and play once I graduated.

About Bob
Take Guitar or Bass Guitar lessons from an experienced teacher and Hartt College graduate. In person one on one private lessons or webcam lessons if that is more convenient. Your lessons will be customized for what you want to learn. Rock, Blues, Folk, Country, Classical, Music Theory, chord playing, lead guitar, music reading, songwriting etc. Lessons can be as easy or challenging as you like depending on your goals. If you are new to guitar or bass guitar, if you tried playing guitar before and it didn't work out, or if you have been away for awhile, I'll do my best to make it a rewarding experience. If you have been playing for many years but feel stuck in a rut, I can get you out of it and teach you things you have wanted to learn. Great teaching environment. I also have free supplementary lesson videos available here (at takelessons)
and on my website.

About Victor
My name is Victor, and I would love to help you further your skills and love for guitar!

I have a Master's degree in Guitar Performance -- emphasis on Classical and Flamenco -- from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. I have been providing private lessons in guitar for over 10 years for students of all ages and skill levels. I also perform and gig regularly. In my career, I have played several well known pieces, such as Entre Dos Aguas by Paco De Lucia, Asturias by Isaac Albeniz, and Recuerdos De La Alhambra by Francisco Tarrega.

Lesson plans are tailored to the student's needs and goals, which can be anything from learning how to read music, learning how to play by ear, furthering one's technique, etc. In lessons with me, you can expect to develop the basics of proper classical techniques, all the way to mastery, enabling y
ou to play fast and precise.

My goal as a teacher is to develop a strong foundation to allow students to eventually learn songs on their own with ease. I strive to create a fun environment to foster learning and keep students engaged in the task at hand. My schedule is flexible and I am open to lessons at my home, your home, or online. I can't wait to get started!
