I've been teaching Guitar for over 30 yrs.
Step by step guidance and exercises catered to the students ability and growing interest is key. My form of teaching helps all students through walks of life to establish a relationship with their instrument that helps them use the the time they have to better themselves at their pace.

About Rene
Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15
albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.

****Personal Statement*****

If you needed a reason

There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

Miami Beach, FL

View Full Profile

Guitar and voice are my main instruments so I am very comfortable with them. I have taught students in many different styles and genres. I have a passion for music and am always keeping my ears open to hear new things. I cater the material to you and how you want to learn to play. I can teach from beginning to intermediate-advanced students.

About Erik
I want to teach you how to express yourself through music. I've been inspired by music since I was young and have been involved in one way or another since I started piano lessons at age 3. I've been playing guitar for over fifteen years and written and recorded music for about eight. Whether you want to go into music seriously as I have, or just use music as a hobby and way to express yourself, I want to help you accomplish your goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each person is different and learns in a slightly different way. Having said that, there are certain essentials which must not be ignored. If you've never taken lessons before, we'll start with the fundamentals, how to hold the guitar properly, make chords, build up finger strength, properly tune the guitar, know all the strings, and most importantly play songs. You will lea
rn how to read basic music, but I can teach you how to play by ear too. Before we have completed our series you or your children will have basic knowledge of all these things and a desire to explore at least some of these aspects further.

For me, the most interesting music reveals the unique perspective and feelings of the person who makes it. Having conquered the essentials I will encourage you to be creative with your developing talents. I can teach you about song structure and I can teach you how to jam with your friends. If you are interested in writing and composing, I can help you with that too. We can take a look at your favorite artists and try to discover how they accomplished and perfected their sound. If you want to learn how to record I have a computer equipped with Pro Tools and would be glad to show you how to use it.

You'll spend time listening to me of course, but I hope to spend much of my time listening to you as well. If reading music doesn't inspire you we can focus more on learning by ear. It's up to you. You'll need your own instrument obviously, though you can leave it at home if you don't want to carry it back and forth. I have guitars here. I request that you purchase a book with text and exercises so that you can practice and study what you learn in the class. Even if you do not want to read music, you will need to know the neck and conquer scale formations and chords. We can choose the text based on your needs.

I'm an enthusiastic guitar teacher with 4 years of experience. I'm looking forward to teaching beginning musicians of all ages! My teaching style is entirely student-oriented, and I adapt my material based on what you want to learn. I often use my music theory background as a supplement, and occasionally I will give handouts and homework. I am primarily experienced in worship music, but am flexible and diverse enough to cater to your interests. Students will need their own instrument and gear, and a notebook or binder.

About Dillon
Hello and welcome to my teacher profile! My name is Dillon S.

I am a music and art teacher, and I have earned my Associate's degree in Music Education at MDC with a focus on jazz guitar. I have a fairly diverse experience in different genres of music (primarily worship/church music, but also rock, pop, punk/metal, jazz and others). I have also sung and played guitar, drums, and bass in numerous bands throughout the years (currently, drummer/percussionist for The Fortune Tellers in Miami, FL).

I have always had a deep love for art, and am currently working on my Bachelor of Science in K-12 Art Education. I have a particular interest in figure drawing/portraiture (charcoal, graphite, India ink), landscape and still life painting (acrylic and oil paint), and both digital and film photography.

I am hoping to improve my teaching skill
s through this platform and impart knowledge onto others. I am laid-back and a kid at heart, and I find it important to teach with a sense of humor. For the record, I'm also a huge geek. I enjoy video games, superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, animals (I myself have two cats), board games, cartoons/anime, technology/science... I also love traveling! If you're into something, feel free to talk to me about it, I love getting to know what you're passionate about!

Dillon is an outstanding music teacher who is very good in teaching his students multiple areas of music ( theory, rhythm, notation) in order to take their instrument playing to the next level. I have been a beginner Ukelele student of Dillon for a few months and have seen a significant advancement in my learning and skill playing of the ukelele. Overall, he is a very patient teacher who deeply understands music and takes the necessary time to work on the different areas where he sees opportunity for his students to improve their musical instruments playing.

I am a Music Composer, Songwriter, and Producer. I like to use the guitar a lot to write songs. I like to incorporate music theory, composition, and songwriting into lessons. We can begin to develop aspects of how to create songs and sing to things that you write. We will go through learning the string names, note names how to read music and understand rhythms. We will learn scales, arpeggios, and playing music by ear. I can teach students that are completely new to the instrument.

Hello There!

My teaching method molds to the necessities and interests of my students, but in general lessons have a theory section followed up by a practice lesson.

At the end of the day my main goal is to teach you how to play what you want to play, providing you with the knowledge you'll need to advance on your own time. Always in a fun, dynamic way.

About Marco
Are we ready to rock?

Hello there!

My name is Marco, I'm an international musician and producer engineer with more than 10 years of experience playing guitar and a degree in Music Production from the University of New Haven.

My guitar students can expect to see improvement in their technique and musical affinities starting lesson one. I always like to prepare my lessons according to my student's interest, since everybody is different there is more than one method to learn how to play an instrument.

I also welcome those who wish to become proficient in the craft of music production, or even take your first steps in this amazing art form. I can teach you the fundamentals of recording and producing your own music, as well as insight to "tips and tricks" the pros use.

Finally and most importantly, my relationship with students
will be a two way street so I can learn from you guys as much as you do from me.

DISCLAIMER!

Having fun is a must! after all we are talking music here
