About Edwin
Hello! Thank you for your interest in taking guitar/piano/music lessons.

I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 17 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.

I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.

Other subjects taught include bass guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, harmonium, classical percussion, music theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.

Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunit
y to play percussion in the school symphony while at the same time developed an intense interest in the instrument that would become my true love, the guitar.

During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.

My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

Now also available to teach online video chat lessons through Skype.

Every one of you is unique and there are many possible paths to reach your goals in music.

With my background and music industry experience, I am able to customize my lessons for you so that you can reach your desired goals. We will take some time to find out where your passion lies in music and I will use my experience and knowledge to create a customized lesson-plan that will allow us to focus on reaching your desired goals and at the same time maintain a well rounded music education.

I find this to be key in making the lessons and your practice sessions very enjoyable, fun and laid back - knowing that everything we practice, play and talk about is in line with your goals as a student.

I will also be playing along with you and demonstrating everything that we're working on - music is meant to be shared and played with others and it is important to have that experience of interaction from early on in your lessons.

So whether it's learning to accompany yourself or others, write songs, read music, understand harmony, solo, or just jam out to your favorite songs, you will be well on your way to reaching your goals within 6 months of my lessons.

Look forward to making music with you!

About Calvin
Hello and welcome to my profile here on takelessons.com thanks for stopping by! My name is Calvin and I’ve been teaching students of all ages for more than 16 years now.
I started my personal music journey at 4 years old first learning piano and guitar and multiple other instruments from there. My father was my first music instructor which grounded me in the foundation and theory of music while at the same time knowing that ear training and learning how to play with other musicians was just as important. From there I had the privilege of learning jazz, blues, and many other styles from the late Hal Stesch at UNLV School of Music who played piano and organ for many great artists including Elvis, The Platters, Frank Sinatra, and many more. Currently my wife and lead Praise and worship 3 to 4 times weekly a two different church campuses an
d also perform every Saturday at a Branson style show in Liberty, Texas.
My approach to teaching music is to customize lessons to the student’s interests while still maintaining the essentials and foundations including music theory, scales, and reading music. I like to incorporate particular songs and genres of music that the student likes by providing customized tracks with their particular instrument taken out so that feel a sense of accomplishment and get the practice of playing along with other musicians which benefits in the ear training process. I look forward to meeting and "jamming" with you soon!

I have been a guitarist for the past 5 years, becoming well versed in Rock, Funk, Blues, Jazz, Indie, pop, disco, country, and folk styles. I also offer the tools to students to not only learn the material I present to them well but also be able to teach themself through the use of ear training and exposure to many different types of musical situations. This will allow an outlet for the student to not only be playing the songs they’re learning(good way to keep the student Interested) but also gives them exsposure to real life playing situations! I also cater to the tastes of the student and will help them learn the styles they are interested in as well as exposing them to new types of music.

About Shane
I am a 19 year old guitarist in the South coast area, who is very dedicated to spreading the knowledge I have obtained through multiple different teachers through the past 5 years Ive been studying. I have a lot to offer musically but only wish to nurture the students growth to allow them to realize their potential may go far beyond what they had originally thought. I hope to help many students on this website delve into the realm of guitar!

I believe understanding music theory and history are the keys to a great musician.

Knowing the right musicians and bands to look up that will help drive every student to wanting to become great.

Finally... I believe anyone can play an instrument, but not everyone can write music, and that is what I aim to teach.

About Sam
Being an 8 year old kid with a strong passion for music. I was able to pick up on the basics of music that can be understood and well grasped by an 8 year old.

I grow up on the classics and i studied every guitar solo and riff. I wanted to be able to perform the same way those guys did. And i did just that 4 years later when i was 12.

I want to share with students that same vibe and feeling i had when i was a beginner.

I grew up in Galax, VA where bluegrass has it's roots. My experience ranges from jazz instruction at the University of Virginia to jam sessions and performance at bluegrass festivals.

About Ben
Hi! I'm a 24 year old musician with a wide range of experience and a very patient personality. I've been giving lessons to children since I was in high school, and I love to pass the knowledge of music on to anyone willing to learn.

I grew up in the small town of Galax, VA where bluegrass music has its roots. You could easily pick my southern accent out of a crowd here in the DC area.

I've played in many bluegrass bands and a few blues and jazz groups.

About brett
I am the lead instructor and owner of our lesson studio, American Music Studio. We believe that music is the universal language. It's math, communication, culture, and science. Music is emotional, can tell stories, and be poetic. Even greater it's therapeutic and educational; a tool that can stimulate brain growth and learning at any age. Most importantly, it's fun and enjoyable. Everyone loves music, of some kind and in some way.

I have been teaching for over a decade now with experience in song writing, performance, sound engineering, mixing and mastering, and more. Our students begin with the basic knowledge they need to understand their instrument and then take off pursuing songs of their own interest. We are fully equipped for all lessons and encourage our students to experiment with instruments beyond their primary choice. Musician
s shouldn't be limited to expressing themselves through just one instrument alone.
