West Columbia, SC

I can teach finger picking, sight reading, songs, and reading tab. Acoustic guitar is a wonderful way to start learning to play the guitar because you learn how to make the sounds naturally with the instrument.

About Christopher
Hello! Hola! Benvenuto! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, composer, polyglot, and experienced language and music teacher.

I am a recent graduate with a Masters of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. There I studied with the world-renowned guitarist Eliot Fisk who is a direct student of the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia.

Currently I work part time teaching 12 students guitar at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia. I also I teach ukulele, Spanish, Italian, and English to a variety of students online. At the same time I am pursuing a Doctoral degree from the university to strengthen my skills as a guitarist and expand my knowledge as a teacher for higher education. I have also just completed my debut album titled, "Anima - The Music of Spain and Italy for the Gu
itar."

This album is a tribute and memorial to an amazing journey I had traveling and living in Europe for 3 years.

After I graduated from my undergraduate degree, I realized that in order to better my skills as a musician and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for three years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar.

I studied with a international known Spanish guitarist named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville. During this time I was also teaching English as a second language to high school and middle school students. From traveling and spending so much time in Europe, I also developed and studied my love of languages and I became fluent in Spanish and Italian.

The experienced was an experience of a lifetime and I made many friends working and living abroad that to this day, I still keep in contact with.

If you are interested in having lessons with me, please contact me and we can begin learning the art of making beautiful music or learning the beautiful languages of the Mediterranean! "Hasta pronto!" "A presto!" and "Speak to you soon!"

I have been teaching guitar for 9 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I look forward to working with you.

Whether you're tackling singer-songwriting, accompaniment, pop/rock, jazz/funk/r&b, or even classical exercises, I can help you. I've studied piano/voice/guitar long enough to know what each kind of instrumentalist/vocalist needs. I'm well versed in a overview of all genres and styles, as well as specialized areas of study. As a writer, I'm also very familiar with coaching instrumentalists geared towards composition and arranging. If you're looking to improve your skills, I can help!

About Jake
I want to teach the material that excites students. After a handful of really crummy experiences with teachers who wanted me to learn a specific way, I stumbled across a music school in Philadelphia and a college in Boston that really got the principle of teaching what students are drawn to. Bruce Springsteen wrote, "we learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school." Although I don't agree with that on all occasions, there is something so special about hearing something that makes you tick and going, "ok let me listen to that again, and now let me figure out HOW I can do that myself." As a teacher, I'm flexible, focused, and also love to have fun with music. It's something that makes us excited and alive; there's no use in pursuing something you love if you don't equally enjoy the process of getting great at
it. So let's find what makes YOU excited about music, and let's figure out out to make you great at it.

I'm Ahmad a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself guitar at the age of 12. I moved to the U.S. in 2001 and studied music for 15 years receiving my B.M. and M.M in music and audio production at San Francisco State University. I then moved to Los Angeles then studied and trained with John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch and many others. I have performed hundreds of concerts in the U.S. as well in Europe and the Middle East with Artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Michael Angelo Batio, Ratt, Sammy Hagar, Dokken and many others.

eve Vai Sam Ash Best in Shred competition.

I find a student's strengths and weaknesses using various ways to encourage each student. I am very patient, kind, flexible, and enthusiastic and I love working with children as much as adults. I strongly support basic skills: sight-reading, pitch and tone.

I have 25 years experience teaching kids and adults guitar. Also performing live and in the studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
My objectives: to help students powerfully communicate through the essence of music and aid the development of children and adults by finding their strengths and weaknesses and to develop their skills and show their musical talents. I emphasize basic skills, good sight-reading, guitar technique, and theory.

Lessons are held at either your home, or mine using composers from various time periods that speaks to the individual student.
Also,I do prefer to work weekly with my students.
A beginner lesson may be 10-15 min. for warm-ups and scales, 10-15 min. theory and rest playtime. In three to six months the student will be able to read sheet music and should be able to perform simple songs.

An intermediate lesson has more focus on music and technique from a specific genre. A specialty is preparation for guitar auditions or doing live or studio gigs.

I enjoy teaching children from age 5 up to adults.

*** Specialties ***
I teach the basic skills very strongly, and also encourage students and challenge them, as well.
I also have new techniques for teaching Electric, Acoustic & CLassical Guitar.
I do prefer to teach a weekly lesson.

Playing the guitar has been on my bucket list for a long time and I finally started taking lessons. I am so happy my first try was with Ahmad. I have been with Ahmad about a year and half, maybe more. Ahmad has so much knowledge and experience I get a really deep instruction from him, from chord formation and music theory and primarily practical practice learning my favorite songs.
Ahmad is relaxed and kind and that goes along way too.

I had been wanting to learn how to play the guitar for years and for my B-day my girlfriend bought me some lessons. She couldn't have picked a better place to buy the lessons from.
Ahmad makes you feel comfortable and really understands the way that people learn and how to teach in the most effective way. The guitar is a tough instrument to learn and you want to learn from someone knowledgeable and patient and that's exactly what Ahmad is.

Ahmad is an extremely patient and mindful teacher which makes him perfect to teach children. Especially children like my son. My son has behavior and attention challenges that make focusing close to impossible. He has been learning to play guitar with Ahmad for nearly two years. In this time he has made amazing progress even though he refuses to practice. He can play several old rock songs from beginning to end. Ahmad has taught a difficult child a difficult task. Ahmad has given my son an outlet for frustration, a much needed coping skill, and hope for success in his future. We are very grateful. I'm looking forward to seeing my son play his guitar on a stage someday ( even just a high school talent show). Thank you, Ahmad. Highly recommend.

I have 6 years of one-on-one guitar lesson experience and have been playing guitar for over 24 years. I am patient, encouraging, and tailor each lesson to the individual. Never a "cookie-cutter" lesson!

In my time teaching guitar, I have worked with students ranging from 8 years old to over 60! All ages are welcome! Learning guitar can and should be super exciting. Join me on this adventure!

About Craig
I am a seasoned vet when it comes to playing and teaching guitar. I have over 24 years playing and 5 years (professionally) teaching. I am able to work with a beginner from day one and get them up and playing songs in no time.

Encouragement and positive reinforcement is key when learning to play guitar. You will never hear a discouraging word out of my mouth and we will work together to continue moving forward.

A little about me personally: I have been married for 14 years now. My wife Leah and I have 3 children, Caleb, Claire, and Caitlin. I am in Manhattan, KS. My musical passion and style ranges from country and folk to hard rock and blues. If it's on the guitar, I can play it and I can teach it.

On guitar, I like to work with children ages 7 to 11 because I feel that they need to be able to master pushing those strings down in such a way that they won't some thuddy. Children who are too young sometimes have problems getting those strings to sound nice and clear so I'd like to be able to at least start with them at the minimum age of 7 years, sometimes six-years-old, depending on the child's ability.

I like to be able to send materials to you through a fax machine if you have one of those in your home. Or if you have a fax very close by that you can use to collect items I'm sending. Please let me know if you have one of these available close by. Thank you.

About Sunshine
Hello!😄♥️😁 I'm Sunshine! I'm a singer songwriter musician, and teach music locally, and now online. My husband & I own a music business, we sell guitars, keyboards, drums, mandolin, ukulele's, etc.. (lots of different instruments).
We both give music lessons. I teach piano, guitar, and voice lessons. He teaches guitar, drums, mandolin, lap steel guitar, and can do "bass and ukulele" lessons if desired as well. So between us, we cover several instruments.

We've had seasonal "Kids School of Music Bands" offered at our facility over the last several years, which is an addition great option if you're here locally where we're located.

I can teach you songwriting skills as well if you have an interest in that direction. I started writing songs when I was around 11 years old. It's a passion of mine. If you have a melody for a song, but
have a problem finding or creating your lyrics, we can work on that, or vice versa, if you have some great lyrics but you need to find your melody and/or need to create your song flow "for" those lyrics, we can also work on those skills.

I also offer pre-math and math skills for ages 3 to 11 years, also, reading, writing, and FUN phonics skills.

Whatever your focus is on, just contact me and let me know.

So ... SMILE guys! 😁😁😁 Lets make things FUN and enjoyably Colorful in whichever direction your going!

Dan is an amazing teacher. When I came to him first, I barely knew how to hold a guitar. He took me under his wings, and almost ten months later, he transformed my playing where I now actually sound like I'm playing a real song.

He is extremely talented, very gifted, and really really good at teaching. He excels in breaking down a concept, or helping me figure out the right way to play a chord, or a lick. He has also proved that he has an amazing ear, helping me learn a song (that he's never heard before), by breaking it down, and de-constructing it.

I am very happy with him being my teacher, and I look forward to learning a lot from him.

Excellent customer service! I truly enjoy working with people who are looking to take up this wonderful instrument. Also the remote lessons are unique. My students get a combination of real-time coaching and personal customized video lessons. We start out with a goal -usually a song you want to learn- decide when we'll meet, and figure out how long it's going to take to get it the way you want.

the interaction between myself and my customers, especially beginners. Those lessons are the high point of my week.

About paul
Hi, there! My name is Paul and I can't wait to meet you! I am passionate about playing guitar, and one of the great joys in my life is sharing my passion with others.

First thing is always to listen to the student and get a sense of their expectations. Once I understand what they want to do, lessons are created based on the student's skill, and expectations.

I studied with guitarist John LaGreca and plan on attending the Berklee school this September. I look forward to helping you reach your own goals as a guitarist!
