Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of guitar skills. I typically use Alfred's Basic books and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: flash cards and a metronome. I work with my students on sight reading as well as ear training so they can become better players over time. I also provide students with homework sheet that explains what we have been focusing on, what they have achieved, and what is the expectation for next lesson.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Modern guitar music is often filled with heavy effects that mask the natural tone of the instrument.
A well played acoustic guitar can blend into any musical environment. Bluegrass, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Funk, Rock, and Metal, or any cutural/ world musc. And yet, it's an instrument which needs no accompaniment.
Make your guitar sing by learning good technique, creative rhythmic picking and strumming, and unique chord voicings. Develop sight reading, improvisation, and composition. Within just a few lessons, you can expect results in learning a song of your choice, and understanding the songwriting choices made by your favorite artists.

Jason tailors the course to a student's individual learning pace and needs. There is also a good combination between theory and learning cords to play a song. Technique is emphasized to build good habits and a foundation for future growth.

Super Knowledgable. Psyched to learn more.
Dennis
Derek is a very knowledgable instructor, easy to talk to, and I found his teaching technique is very motivating. He set realistic practice goals for the next session, which will require me to do my part, but that's the reason we show up, to learn how to play a musical instrument.
I highly recommend him.

I'm enjoying my lessons with Annie very much. My lessons are usually in home but until the stay at home restrictions are lifted the online lessons are working out much better than I had anticipated.

She’s very helpful and insightful for what I needed at the time she was not demeaning or overbearing and I thought very comfortable working with her when I return to Tennessee I will definitely consider her again

"Will is the perfect antidote to learning from a computer or from books (not that those don't have a place) and provides way more context, experience, variety, and nuance than any computer or most other instructors could provide. Will's experience is something not easily acquired and has allowed him to suit his instruction to my specific strengths and address my weaknesses. While many instructors teach to support their music careers Will teaches cause he likes it and is good at it."

"Matt taught both of my kids over the course of three years. He taught them how to play acoustic, electric, and even the ukulele. He’s an amazing student of music and I believe he has a degree in music as well. He started them with the basics and foundational skills required to play. Not only does he know the instrument inside and out, he is super attentive in understanding how to teach the instrument to children as well as adults. Highly recommend him for any of the string instruments. He is the real deal, not a hack that taught themselves guitar."

"Jordan is really very good teacher. I just started to learn guitar, I feel lucky that my husband selected Jordan.He achieves the target(lessons) in short timeline. He is kind and friendly with loads of patience. He teaches whatever I like along with regular lessons. I am basically from India, so even when I ask music for languages other than English, he does without any sort of hesitation. If you search for new guitar teacher, I am 100% sure that Jordan will be the best choice. Both "in home" and "in studio" you will definitely feel comfortable to work with him. You will have full freedom to learn what you really want."
