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.

I can teach all levels and many styles. I make it easy for you to learn at you're own pace so you can achieve your goals and have fun playing music.

About Thomas
Tom has a music degree focused in guitar performance and a combined professional teaching and performance career that spans over twenty years.

Tom began teaching in 1994 and still practices today instructing students of all ages on guitar and bass techniques, as well as music theory.

Tom is very laid back and embraces working at the pace that each of his students feels most comfortable. Lessons are about the student’s ambitions. If it is learning their favorite songs or a deep dive into music theory, jazz improvisation or songwriting it can be covered in strides that seem fit to the student. Books can be used for guidance and a custom lesson plan created that will fit specific criteria desired to be achieved by the student. Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it!!

Get happy, play the blues! All the different styles can be explored. We'll start with simple blues scales and work towards understanding why certain notes go with certain chords. From there, improvisation and comping get so much easier.

About Tim
I am a Hartt School of Music trained classical guitarist raised on the electric guitar. With over 20 years of teaching experience, I have helped students of all ages achieve their musical goals. Whether it's getting into the school jazz band, a college degree program or simply playing for friends, I can help you get there. My studio is a spacious and equipped learning environment designed with the guitarist in mind.

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.

Instead of a rigid model of teaching, I teach by getting to know what my students like and get them to learn the guitar by songs they're inspired by! Guitar can be pretty difficult to learn especially in the beginning. So I want to make sure my students enjoy the process of learning as much as possible!

About James
I've been playing guitar for 15 years and teaching for a little over 10 of those years. I'm well versed in many styles as both a player and a teacher. As I mentioned, I want to get to know what made you pick up the guitar in the first place. I want to get you playing those songs.. eventually! I went to college for a music performance degree for French Horn. I also have a wide understanding of music theory for anyone that wants to get into that realm!

Classically trained musician with a fresh view on contemporary sounds and rhythms. I cut my teeth in the grueling, high-stakes orchestra scene of Westchester County but, I know that learning to play guitar and practicing violin concertos for hours on end are two very different things. WIth 4 years of experience in teaching guitar classes to young adults, I know that scales and music theory aren't necessarily best way to get up and running if you're just trying to impress your significant other with a rousing rendition of "Hotel California". With the knowledge of a former principal violist and the flexibility of a jaded millennial, I can get you playing "Wonderwall" by the end of the first lesson.

About Alexei
Prior to working in software, I played in many classical, folk and rock ensembles throughout the country. I took private violin / viola lessons for 8 years, and private guitar lessons for 5 years. I was the principal violist in my high school orchestra, 1st violin player in the Greater Westchester Youth Symphony and a violist in the USC Concert Orchestra in Los Angeles. I've been in the classical realm for long enough to realize that picking up and playing a guitar is not the same as playing violin and practicing it for many hours.

I started a rock band with my friends in high school, for which I played lead guitar and the occasional drum kit. Playing guitar (solo or in a band) is a lot like playing violin but, the learning curve isn't as steep. You only need to know a few guitar fundamentals before you're ready to play your favorite
rock and acoustic songs. My lessons and teaching style reflect this.

After 4 years of providing guitar instruction in both the group and personal setting, I think I've figured out a way to get my students up and playing while providing the minimum amount of theory and technique instruction necessary to do so. I'll always ask you what your favorite genre of music is and then craft lessons and a curriculum around that. You'll always end each lesson with a tangible skill or song that you can put into practice right away. If we spend the first half of a lesson learning some chords, you'll learn a song that uses those chords in the second half. If you opt instead to tell me a song you'd like to learn, I'll teach you the song and make sure to emphasize the technique and theory components that the song uses.

Playing guitar should be fun, and taking lessons shouldn't feel like a chore. I'll teach you anything you want to learn as long as you approach each lesson with a clear mind and willingness to get better.

I never played an instrument before my lessons with Alexei but he was a great teacher and I learned a lot of chords each lesson. By now, I can confidently play in front of my friends and have them sing along, and also be able to improvise and add my own rendition to each piece. This was more than what I set out to do when I started taking lessons, so I'm very happy! Alexei is also very flexible with his times and was able to accommodate my hectic schedule. I wish he hadn't moved to the East Coast!

Alexei has been a great instructor for my son over the last several months! He knows most of the music my son listens to and has been able to help teach him how to play along to many of his favorite songs. My son has improved substantially and is excited every week for his lessons. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an engaging and knowledgable teacher for their child!

Saint Paul, MN

Experienced teacher of 5 years, specializing in beginner/ intermediate guitar, voice and performance. All ages welcome. Whether you're looking to play the blues, serenade your crush, shred face-melting guitar solos, or any other smattering of skills, lessons will be catered to meet the individual goals of the student. Not to mention random bits of musical trivia, picked up from years of obsessive Wikipedia reading.

About Jake
Music fills virtually my entire life. When I was 12 years old I picked up my dad's old guitar, played a few chords, and haven't put it down since.

I am currently studying Composition at Macalester College, but my experience goes far beyond the classroom. I sing in the advanced Concert Choir, as well as in Macalester's premier acapella group, and I am the frontman of a locally prominent band. I have been performing since I was 14, and have opened for several noteworthy artists, including Lion Babe, Lil' Dickie and T-Pain.

With me, students can expect to not only learn the guitar but also invaluable performance techniques, music theory, music history and more. Whatever your musical goals, be it acoustic songwriting like Taylor Swift or Ed Sheeran, shredding guitar solos like Jimi Hendrix or Joan Jett, or intricate rhythmic strummings li
ke John Frusciante or Nancy Wilson, I am determined to help you succeed.

About Deven
Hey there!
I'm a self-taught Lead/Rhythm guitarist with a local band of 5. I've played guitar almost 10 years now, and love helping people both new to guitar and veterans alike in any way I can. I love helping others play and appreciate the music they've always dreamed of playing themselves. I know how hard it can be to get started on guitar, as it can be quite discouraging if not approached right. I've been there. But I made it! I want to help you too! I can teach many different styles of song and play style. I personally love playing classic rock, hard rock, metal, punk, acoustic, blues, etc. but I've always tried to appreciate many of the different genres we here all over the place today. I also believe starting with something were passionate about can be the kickstart we need to take our music to the next level. Fun, motivating, and
informative, all in one teacher. Look forward to talking with you about guitar! Please, if you have any questions, feel free to ask! 😉😋 Thanks!
