Richard W. Salt Lake City, UT

I began playing the guitar when I was 8 years old. I took private lessons for 7 years and decided to try and further my skills privately. I practiced along with many albums to perfect certain skills.
When I attended the University of Utah, I had no idea how little I knew about Music Theory.
I try to teach the fundamentals of music and allow a student to express themselves with this new found language.

About Richard

I began playing music at the age of six. I started with the piano and saxophone but found my true passion, by age eight, in the guitar. I took private lessons from a great teacher for the first seven consecutive years of my study and further developed my knowledge and skills through self-directed study. I received my Undergraduate degree in Music Theory from the University of Utah. The pursuit of this degree allowed me to study many different musical aspects, including: composition, music history, ear training, sight reading and music technology, along with classical and jazz guitar studies. Over the years, through my education and practice, I have learned a great deal, not just about the guitar, but also ways to teach music and engage students in their pursuit of musical knowledge. I ...

Rich is an excellent guitar & music teacher

Starting to study music and learn the guitar in my late 40's was pretty tough. After trying a community education class, and a different private instructor, I found Rich here on Take Lessons. After the first lesson I knew that I was going to learn a lot from him, and that I would enjoy the journey.

Rich is very knowledgeable about music, and he takes the time to teach it in a connected and practical way. As he says in his bio, he is laid back, but that does not mean that he is not serious about music and about teaching. For me his teaching approach is perfect, as he blends a deep understanding of all aspects of music with learning, and enjoying, the guitar.

My previous experience was focused mostly on learning chords, songs, and how to read tablature. On my own I discovered the Hal Leonard Method beginner book series, and started to teach myself to read music from it.

As I started my lessons with Rich he immediately did 3 things that impressed me. First he assessed what I knew, and what my goals were. He reviewed my progress in the Hal Leonard book and encouraged me to keep using it, making some key observations and suggestions during the first lesson that immediately helped me. And the most impressive thing was that he started teaching music theory from the very first lesson, showing me scales, introducing the Circle of Fifths, and demonstrating the application of understanding the principles, patterns, and theory. This made me very hungry to learn.

I don't want to just learn how to play songs on the guitar, rather I want to learn to make music with this instrument. That is what Rich is teaching. And his approach is very comfortable and fun. He adapted himself to my learning style and my needs from the beginning, and I can see myself continuing to learn from him for many years.

If you take lessons with me, you can expect progression! This takes top priority in my mind. It is very important for my students to know that I encourage keeping track of their progress on their chosen instruments. Setting goals and reaching them can be very satisfying! I recognize that every student has different skill levels and I will teach to the style that they best adapt to. One final note to add, they will be loved!

About Katie

At just 6 months old my mom discovered me humming “Silent Night”. By age 2, I would sit in the bathroom, holding aloft a Reader’s Digest from which I would “read” aloud, belting gibberish at the top of my lungs. Needless to say, my mother quickly enrolled me in the children’s performing group “Sunshine Generation”, since then its been 23 years of singing, dancing, acting, playing piano, playing guitar and playing the ukulele non-stop. I love music and I love teaching! I have been studying the subject for decades now, two and half to be exact. First, in private lessons with wonderful teachers, then in Junior High, and High School. Then I entered the realms of college at Citrus, Riverside City College and my current educating grounds, Brigham Young University(Commercial Music Major). I ...

Mr.

Years ago I majored in guitar at USC, and I taught it for years as well travelled around the world performing. I am particular with my daughter's teachers. Katie is great. She's knowledgeable, relates to my daughter well, and she sounds great, which is why we picked her in the first place!

About Chris

I am first and foremost a cello teacher, but I have a very diverse background. I have played in five jazz ensembles, eight orchestras, and a few bands here and there. I've attended three universities and have learned from many different teachers and teaching styles. In addition to the cello, I play the piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums and double bass proficiently. I've been teaching on and off for the last eight years, and have come to love teaching lessons 1-on-1. I first attended USF studying cello performance, then BYU-Idaho studying cello performance. I am currently at BYU in Provo studying commercial music.

About Taylor-Len

My name is Taylor T. and I grew up on the beautiful island of Maui. I was born and raised both in Kobe, Japan and Maui and my dad is a guitar/bass player for a Hawaiian band.
