Open and individualized lessons will teach each student in a unique fashion to fit them best. Chords, theory and musical reading will be the main focus of these lessons. My individualized approach works well for many students so that they learn what they want, how they want, and see the results that they specifically are looking for.

Students can expect to learn anything from basic chords to advanced theory and improvisational techniques on their instrument.

As a college graduate with an emphasis in guitar i feel that my mastery over the instrument and ability to teach is is second to none in the area. I feel equally confident in my mastery over acoustic guitar and electric guitar although acoustic guitar is my preferred instrument to teach. As a professional gigging blues/rock/indy musician I have toured while playing all forms of acoustic and rock genres and venues, from jazz to country to blues to classic rock. I can teach you any genre of music or method of guitar playing ...

Guitar is my main squeeze. I love to help people enjoy the instrument as much as I do. learn to shred a rock solo, fingerpick a folk song, or transcribe miles davis. learn to play what you hear on records without resorting to you tube instructional videos (wink). or if you are already an accomplished musician, enhance your ability to employ techniques like chord weaving on the guitar, craft better solos, write more sophisticated chord progressions, etc

Indigo is an excellent voice teacher. In a short time she’s helped me sing better, feel more confident in my singing, and make me enjoy singing more. She listens carefully to how I sing and provides helpful feedback for improvement and opening up my voice. I’m looking forward to continuing to develop my voice with her!

Indigo is a fantastic guitarist and a patient teacher. Working with her has been a joy!
Jane
I'm a complete newbie and Indigo has been a great instructor for helping to get me going! I appreciate that she brings in some basic music theory from the get-go so that you have a basis for understanding / navigating the instrument. I appreciate her patience and emphasis on slowing down and practicing with consistency.

"If you are looking for the best guitar teacher, I recommend Jeff. He teaches music with precision. Jeff is patient, and makes sure you get all the notes correct. He is eager to teach new songs, even if they aren't in the book. Jeff also knows the best accessories for the guitar (strap, tuner, etc.) and where you can find them. He also gives the option of coming to your home, which is convenient. Jeff teaches different genres of music, like blues, folk, classical, and jazz. At the end of class, he plays games with you, like guess the note. He has a vast knowledge in music; he will tell you what the symbols on the page mean. Jeff also helps you learn the chords, which are hard. He is truly an awesome teacher!- Ashwin"

Guitar Chord Charts: 11 Easy Tips to Read Fingering Charts on Acoustic Guitars

While it's true that you don't need to read music to play the guitar, you should learn how to read guitar chord charts. A guitar chord chart is a visual representation of a chord. This helpful visual is a little like music-by-numbers; it tells you which finger goes where and on what string, so in case you come across a chord you don't know, you'll be able to play it. Here's an example of a guitar chord chart, also known as a guitar chord diagram: Guitar chord charts are a cinch …
