Private Guitar Teacher

All ages are welcome! I've been playing guitar for 15 years, and been involved in multiple groups and bands (playing guitar, bass, drumset, marching drums, and sometimes vocals) since 2008. I teach fundamentals of playing (finger-picking or with a pick), how to read tabs, alternate tunings, chord structure, the importance of scales, and can help you learn to pick up your favorite songs just by listening to them! If you are interested, I can also show you how to get started on recording your own music!

I have just started guitar lessons with Stan and the lessons are going very well. It's exciting to be learning note reading which is something I have always wanted to do. Stan is thorough and clear in his instructions and I look forward to each lesson. I feel lucky to have Stan as my teacher.
Samuel K.
Stan is very knowledgeable about singing, and he teaches more than just voice lessons. It seems like he looks for the best in you as an artist, and try to take it to another level. I'm a new student of his, and it's been great so far. Looking forward to the weekly lessons.

Stan is obviously both knowledgeable and talented but he is also a very good teacher and will tailor your lessons not only to your ability but also to your own personal goals

Danilo is a really great drum teacher. Challenging, but also meets you at what ever level you're at. When limbs don't know how to rally together for a new thing, he's a very good cheerleader until it comes together or helps make it make sense to break through that wall. Enjoys good music too. Super recommend.
Charles
Great teacher. Fills me with confidence. Also it is awesome and inspiring to hear him play.
Lynn
Danilo is great! He adjusts each weeks lesson to adapt to my needs. Patient, easy going, and very knowledgeable about what I need to work on and giving me exercises to work on between lessons. Highly recommend!

I can teach beginning guitar students how to play their favorite songs. Also, how to read tabs and chord charts. Advanced students can learn theory and jazz improvisation. I can help students who have been using a capo learn how to play bar chords so you will no longer need a capo.
Guitar students should be at least nine years old.
I do not teach finger picking style.

Online Guitar Teacher

For general education in learning to play guitar, we focus on learning chords, strum patterns, simple progressions and then easy songs. Students are encouraged to bring song ideas in - I probably have them already - so we can begin moving in the direction they want, the reason they want to play guitar, and achieve success in playing their favorite songs. Beyond that, it is up to the student how far they wish to go.

About Geoff

I am a professional musician with a career spanning 40+ years (touring and studio work), and 30+ years teaching music, including college level classes. What do you want to learn? How far you go is up to you! *** Lesson Details *** BEGINNING students start with the fundamentals, what you must

I took lessons about 40 years ago from other teachers, not sure what I was expecting. However Geoff far exceeded whatever they were. Very knowledgeable, an excellent teacher.
Jay
My son had a great first lesson with Geoff. He was kind and patient but also very knowledgeable.
Ethan
"It was kind of hard but fun!" My 9 year old left saying, "now I finally know how to learn how to play from sheet music!" Geoff is patient and knowledgeable.

"My kids have been learning from Jesse for nearly two years now and we are so grateful to have found him. They had already taken a few years of ukulele, and so wanted to branch out to guitar. Now, they have started exploring several instruments (electric guitar, drum, keyboard, bass guitar/ukulele) and they look forward to their private lessons and band lesson every week. Jesse is a gem - he gives students a chance to direct their own interests in learning music (they suggest their own song choices to learn from), and encourages them to be responsible with the equipment and their practices. My kids really look up to him, and he is a fantastic role model - a great combination of skill, dedication, and teaching, but also really fun-loving. You can tell that he really loves what he does. He is also very professional and responsible, and an incredibly nice person. Highly recommended without reservation."

Close friend refereed us to James and my son is taking private lessons since last June. James has strong knowledge in music and he has fun way of teaching. His studio space is also very professional. My son is enjoying every lesson and he is learning at steady speed. James is a great teacher."
