Michael H.

Dayton, OH

Beginner-intermediate rhythm guitar, some fingerstyle, theory & notation, tablature

About Michael

My name is Mike and I operate out of the Dayton, OH area. I have 11 years experience teaching music in public schools and would love to have you study with me. I am a percussionist by nature, and that's where my expertise lies, but I am able to help out beginning to intermediate guitarists and pianists. I believe strongly in crafting well-rounded students and would love to have the opportunity to work with you. *** Lesson Details *** I'm pretty laid back but I expect dedication to the craft. Outside practice is essential, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. Music is to be enjoyed and so should the learning process. In the end, I'm all about helping the student reach his or her personal goals and will structure the lessons to guarantee success with that. *** Studio Equipment ...

My teenager has had lessons with Jacob for 3 years, first guitar, then piano. He has a great personality and is a very encouraging teacher. She never once wanted to quit and never complained about going to the lessons, even with an otherwise very busy schedule, which is a testament to him and his teaching. He is a very dedicated and talented musician, and was always willing to work with whatever songs she wanted to learn. I would highly recommend him for any age kid or adult.

Brandon S.

Fairborn, OH

About Brandon

Hey! My name is Brandon, and I'm a recent Wright State graduate and musician. I've taught guitar lessons since I was 17, and it's one of my biggest passions in life. I play in bands The Noodle Factory and The Hoppers, and I record solo material. One of my goals is to inspire people to love music the way I do. I've done it many times, and there's no better feeling.

Aaron L.

Kings Mills, OH

My lessons will consist mostly of instruction in forming chords and playing basic scales. Students will learn to form all chords in open positions first and later how to form them in a barred position. Students will be able to choose from a variety of simple songs to learn. When practiced often, these should help form a solid foundation for further exploration. Students will also become familiar with guitar tablature, chord charts, and basic language associated with guitar-playing.

About Aaron

Hey! My name's Aaron and I love to play the guitar. I'm totally passionate about the instrument but I also like to approach it from an analytic, theoretical point of view, thanks to some formal training in piano. I am (almost) completely self-taught since the age of 10 when my dad taught me my first few chords. It didn't take long for me to take off from there, teaching myself songs by alternative rock artists such as Green Day and Nirvana from tablature on the internet. Throughout the school day, thoughts of guitar and music would keep me occupied, then I'd go home and play for hours. Over the years, my musical taste broadened as well as my style of playing, which has come to include techniques of rock & roll, country, blues, and jazz. My favorite kind of guitar to play is ...
