Private Guitar Teacher

The guitar is an incredibly fun instrument. It takes only three chords to unlock hundreds of well known songs. I have been helping many people learn new songs and techniques for over ten years, in turn I have made many friendships, I have traveled, and gained a good amount of knowledge and experience to pass on to you. The lessons I offer will be unique to each student based on your interests and pace of learning.

Just had my first lesson with Billy and it was fantastic! He created the perfect balance of learning something enjoyable that I would be excited to go home and practice along with things that I had skipped over and knew I needed to re-visit in order to improve. I was impressed with his ability to quickly gauge my skill level and prior music knowledge so it didn’t feel mundane but challenged me just the perfect amount. Excited for our next lesson already!

Billy helped me understand what i wanted out of music and tailored the lesson to do just that...started w the basics but then let me direct whete i wanted to take my playing...easy going and made it so much fun....i would recommend him to anyone at the beginner/intermediate level, as he is adept at getting to know who u are as a player and goes at the appropriate pace....great teacher!

William is an awesome teacher. He is exactly what I was hoping for, very knowledgeable, low key, great personality. I am excited to be learning from him!

Great professor and person.
It is unfortunate that I have developed some health problems that resulted in me having to interrupt the lessons.

Learn any song you want from any time. I have a good ear and can pick any song off a CD or YouTube. I can then write it out for you and teach it to you in any key. Don't be afraid, I like to use Tablature so you don't need to be able to read music.

Do you want to play Lead Guitar? I can teach you all the scales, arpeggios & Pentatonics that you need to know to become a rock 'n' roll guitar god!

Totally would recommend Jesse for guitar teaching. He is very patient and teaches in a fun way my child was able to grasp and learn from. He is very experienced and a great teacher to learn from. My son was 7 years old when Jesse taught him guitar, and he loves playing guitar now - all thanks to Jesse.

I had my first lesson today. Cris is the real deal. He is an excellent guitar player and was able to coax what little skill and talent I possess into a formidable lesson early on. I'll be booking my Son along with myself and returning. We are blessed to have someone in the Rancho Bernardo/Rancho Penaquitos area like Cris!

Each lesson is tailored to fit each individual student. We will cover genres of music that is of interest to you, using music you enjoy most so learning the guitar will be fun. Even if you have experience playing guitar, I will be able to show you alternative strum patterns, picking patterns, useful techniques, tricks and short-cuts to make playing easier. This applies to whether you are learning acoustic, classical or electric guitar. I have a blast teaching and my students have fun learning!

Lola is a professional at what she does. From the moment I walked into my first lesson, I could tell she was very knowledgeable about music. Beyond music, she is a very kind and welcoming woman who is patient and understanding. She talks with you and really cares about what you're saying. She is a great teacher for anyone of all levels of experience in music and I recommend her for everyone.

"Just had lesson number two with Lars. I've never played any instrument before and am having a great time. Lars is patient and encouraging when teaching. I'm having a blast and hope he finds as much enjoyment teaching as I do learning. Growing up in the 60's doesn't allow me much time to become proficient. There just aren't that many years left in me. I won't be playing any Freebird riffs anytime soon, but I'm pretty confident as I learn more with Lars I'll be able to play a few ditties around the fire pit. Looking for a good instructor, he's your guy!"

I tried to teach my daughter, Rose, how to play the guitar and I couldn't get her to follow through with her lessons. Al has made the guitar fun for her. She'll play AT LEAST an hour a day now, learning songs given to her and playing warm-ups like scales.

Al also teaches music theory so Rose understands music more. Any teacher that gets a student that excited is doing something right."

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 from 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.
