I so appreciate Chrissy's patience and instruction. Her tips on on muscle memory and how to use resources to improve technique were very valuable. I highly recommend her!

Chrissy is always punctual and professional. After just three lessons I am seeing great improvements not only in my daughters guitar skills, but her confidence as well. She is also working with my husband. He is enjoying the lessons and is inspired by observing her rip out some rock tunes.

My lesson plans are designed to be musical and fun. I want my students to understand the language of the music by studying their favorite bands and understanding the theory behind it. I have a strategy for everyone starting from beginner, intermediate, to advanced. I remember picking up a guitar for the first time and what a struggle it was to play my favorite songs. There is a method for achieving these goals and it is different for everyone. The one thing that will allow you to succeed is having a desire to learn and a passion for music. If you have those two things then I can direct you to the right path to achieve your musical goals!

Great start with Steven. Can't wait for the next lesson!
Edozie E.
Steve has been teaching my two boys piano for a few months now and it’s been great. My kids are 6 and 7 and had never played an instrument before. They absolutely love their lessons and have made a ton of progress in the short time since they started. I would recommend Steve for any music lesson needs you have.
Tatiana H.
Steve is a great teacher. I had some small working knowledge after trying to teach myself for a year without any luck and with Steve's help I've learned a lot and can play a couple of songs! He really listens to you and what your interests are and focuses on those rather than the traditional method of going through the basics and earning things we have no interest in like we all did in band class in school. Of course if that's what you need he will, but in all its focused on you and what you need to progress yourself as a musician. He is also very easy to work with in terms of making and changing schedules. If you have a hectic and ever changing life like myself it's no problem for Steve to work around. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in taking their guitar playing to the next level.

I approach the guitar as a creative tool of limitless possibilities, as an outlet not only to build confidence and character as a musician, but as a person! You do not have to be a virtuoso to create and enjoy beautiful music with the guitar. I strive to make music accessible to all and easy to understand.

Using my real-world experiences as a lifelong musician, a pragmatic teaching method, and over 15 years playing guitar, I will help you achieve your musical goals with custom tailored lessons that move at your pace.

My ultimate goal is to foster a passion for music and build the confidence of my students!

Collin helped me, as a beginner bass player, improve tremendously. Over the course of a year, he introduced me to new styles and techniques, while helping me build confidence to play with other musicians. Thanks, dude!
Kascidy
I had my first lesson with Collin as a beginner with no history in music and I learned (and retained) more than I was expecting myself to. He definitely knows his stuff but also had the ability to break it down and simplify it for me. It's important for me to not feel intimidated or slow while learning something brand new... I think that's why I enjoyed his lesson so much. He's patient, answered all of my questions along the way (and I had alot), was thorough, and hyped me up. I had a great experience. I'm definitely excited to keep learning from him!
Jackie
Collin is a very professional, patient, humorous, and beyond talented musician. 10/10 recommend to anyone learning to play guitar.

"Fantastic teacher

I'm a 25 year old teacher and decided I wanted to start taking guitar lessons during my first summer off. I looked online and found David through Take Lessons reviews and am SO glad I did. He is such a fantastic teacher, making lessons fun and relaxing after a long day. After just a little over a year, I have learned such a wide range of skills thanks to David's willingness to develop a program filled with variety. I highly recommend David to anyone who is eager to learn!"

"I have had one lesson with David, and it is enough to tell that he is a great teacher. He clearly knows how to play guitar. He is both encouraging and firm. He explained to me the expectations for my practice and what he wants me to learn by next week, but was also very understanding whenever I made a mistake. I told him about my experience in other hobbies, and from that he was able to use analogies that made sense to me that would help me learn the techniques he was teaching.

Learning to Play Guitar in Tampa

By Billy W. - Tampa Guitar Teacher

The first few months of your Tampa guitar lessons are no doubt exciting. Yet as the weeks progress, it will dawn on you that playing the guitar is not as easy as playing Guitar Hero. Your amount of practice time will begin to dwindle and as the weekly assignments get harder, you become less prepared for lessons. So, what can you expect after a few months of Tampa guitar lessons?

A new student should be able to play 3 chords, switch between chords, play/make up simple grooves, make up melodies, jam with the instructor, and play one or two songs from start to finish. Having said that, keep in mind that it takes time to master new skills and build the muscles needed to play the guitar. Setting a foundation of time will help keep you f

...

rom getting frustrated when a challenge seems to slow you down. Challenges will confront us, but they are also signs that we are growing.

Stop fearing mistakes - mistakes will happen, but it’s all part of the learning process. The difference between you and Jack White is that he doesn’t dwell on the mistakes and keeps playing. He is so good at playing the guitar that we think he never makes mistakes. If we cultivate an attitude of not caring about making mistakes, we will find ourselves making fewer. Like my teacher once told me, “Play the mistake two more times and everyone will think you did it on purpose.” This should give you an idea of what to expect from your Tampa guitar lessons. I hope you find this article useful and encouraging, and that you continue to grow as a guitar student.
