Private Acoustic 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 been taking lessons with Frank for several years and I think he is an excellent instructor. He has helped me have confidence in my abilities and is patient when I get frustrated. He has been able to teach me about music theory in such a way that it is understandable. I have been to some of his performances and he is a talented musician as well as instructor.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Learning how to play guitar is easy, with my step-by-step method (additional book purchase required). I give students the opportunity to learn simple technique that sets them up for future learning and beyond!
You'll learn how to hold your instrument, the parts of your instrument, how to tune it, placing fingers on the strings to get the best sound, strumming and picking. I'll throw in reading various types of written music covering chords and theory. You'll receive instruction, demonstration, and exercises for the very basics of operating it so you can master them in literally no time, and quickly move on to expanding technique and playing songs. You'll also learn how to sing and play at the same time so you can entertain your friends with the latest cover songs!

About Cosima

My main subject is voice but I also teach acoustic guitar, ukulele and songwriting for the student who desires to develop their own style and create their own songs. Not only is it fun but the music education that comes with it is highly valuable for future musicians. (guitar and ukulele rentals a

Just finished my very first lesson with Cosima. I already learned so much. She really broke down that art of singing and made it very clear how the voice works. Then we did exercises afterwards which helped me know what I need to work on. Definitely need to check her out. She’s great!(:

Joris
Wit's understanding and non-dogmatic teaching style made classes high-quality and stress-free. Remote instruction was deeply engaging, which I wasn't expecting as someone who is used to in-person music classes. I definitely learned more than I have in any other guitar class.

I especially appreciated that class felt like a discussion rather than a recital. Instead of following one method or theme, I was encouraged to completely shift our attention at any time if there was anything I was curious about.

Wit presents difficult ideas with enough context that I, having a limited understanding of theory, felt able to keep up and incorporate higher-level concepts into my writing/playing.

Can't recommend Wit's classes enough!
Bianca
Prawit is such an incredible teacher - he structures the lessons to your specific goals, makes sure you understand everything before you move on, and makes it fun!
I love the structure he provides, and also the fact that he makes sure to check in as you are progressing. 👏🏼 I highly recommend him as a teacher
Ruby
I have been Prawit's student for several years in both in-home lessons and online. He is an amazing teacher! Prawit really takes the time to understand what I want to learn, and shows me how to achieve those goals. He is extremely clear, patient, and supportive. He teaches me both acoustic and electric guitar in several different musical genres.

"I would recommend Greg, hands down, over any other teacher I've learned music with. He has an amazing way of simplifying it for people just learning, and plenty of knowledge for experianced players. Someday I hope I can take my children to him so that they learn the love of music like I did! Thank you for your kind teachings."

"First off, I am a complete beginner. I have never played an acoustic guitar and only started to playing the bass the end of last year. I have tried on my own for about a month and decided I need some professional help. I just needed an instructor who could guide me and answer my constant questions rather than having to look up instructions online. Jordan is worth the time and money just having someone who can easily answer my questions or instruct me on what I am doing wrong. After the first month, I can see a lot of improvement from when I first started the online lessons. Jordan is very patient and knows his stuff. These types of lessons and also Jordan's enthusiasm motivates me to keep going when normally I would not try as hard when learning on my own. I am very happy with my instructor and online lessons. I would recommend Jordan for those who are interested in playing guitar."

"My son has is going on his 4th lesson with Remi. I was amazed with how Remi has helped him not only to play the guitar but to also read music in such a very short time. He has enjoyed the practice lessons with Remi and always looks fwd to going home and working on his lessons. Remi is very good with my teenage son and sets a very entertaining and fun mood for learning his guitar (we love his humor). I highly recommend that if you are going to choose someone to teach you or your child how to play an instrument, Remi is the perfect choice. We plan to hopefully continue our lessons with him and look fwd to seeing our son progress more."

"My son Mike took lessons from Matt for 2 years and really enjoyed it. He and Mike really hit it off. Matt has very advanced active listening skills and really tunes in to providing his students with a positive learning experience. Matt's passion is music, and he wears it on his sleeve. He has quit his "day job" and totally dedicated himself to music. When he isn't teaching, he's either learning or playing somewhere. Thank you Matt for being such a positive influence on Mike's life"

"I should note first that Calvin is teaching my 13-year-old son both piano and guitar (electric and acoustic) and has been for nearly two years now. Calvin is an excellent instructor and really inspires my son to try harder to improve his skills on all three instruments. He is patient, but has high expectations and he supports and encourages by sharing his own stories of his life in music and how he has had to work to perfect a skill or overcome a difficulty. He challenges my son just above his ability level so it is not stressful, but it isn't easy either. Calvin is great at helping students develop expression so the piece sounds really good, while also encouraging the student to add his own style, when it is appropriate. Calvin is flexible and communicative. We home school and he is very kind in helping us come up with a manageable schedule. We are so grateful for Calvin and his sharing the gift of music with our family. I recommend him without reservation."

"Ahmad is very energetic and passionate about guitar and teaching guitar to people. He is very organized and systematic in his teaching. His style of teaching enables students to learn and get to know a wide variety of guitar aspects very quickly. He breaks up lessons into short but consumable modules while at the same time giving something concrete to start playing and get going from the word go whether you are a beginner or not. I've been going to him for several months now and would highly recommend Ahmad for his guitar teaching skills!"

He helped her choose music to help her learn the skills, but made sure it was music she was interested in and wanted to learn and practice.
