About Phil H.

Cumming, GA

View Full Profile

While my background is in classical guitar, I enjoy exploring other genres such as jazz guitar. If you're not sure what genre you want to study, let's first learn the basics and then go from there.

About Phil
I've been playing guitar for over 20 years and teaching since 2008. Along with teaching, I've also been pursuing music recording, an endeavor which has produced two full-length albums and one that is still in progress that should be released sometime in 2018.

*** Lesson Details ***
When teaching guitar or any other instrument, I typically use a method book to guide the lessons. In addition to the lesson book, which will cover music-reading, we'll learn scales, chords and strum patterns, among other things. I try to tailor each lesson according to the student's skill level and individual musical interests.

After learning the basics, we can learn different styles of music, including rock, blues, jazz, classical, etc. I look forward to exploring these genres with you!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own instrument. I would ex
pect my student to have or to rent his/her own instrument.

We can play as a band too. When you are ready, I love to bring out the drum or backing tracks to your favorite artists songs while you play guitar and I play what your not, giving you the feel of a live group

Genres include Acoustic, Blues, Country, R&B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Rock, Pop and more.

I've been playing guitar since 2010 and would love to introduce you to the world of music. I teach so that the students aren't just placing their fingers where I tell them to, but understanding why all the notes they are playing work together. Come join me and begin your journey in music.

About Nick
Hi there! My name is Nick and I've been helping students achieve their classroom goals since 2008. As a computer engineering major at the University of Central Florida I've seen my fair share of mathematics and know a ton of tips and tricks that will enable you to learn rather than memorize material. In my tutor sessions I like to ask my students a lot of questions, this helps students absorb the material we are going over as well as give them confidence when answering questions. I'm a fun, dedicated, and hard working person that will help you meet your goals and I'm looking forward to working with you.

I have played and written music with Mark for a number of years now and can declare that he knows his stuff! His passion for music always comes through vibrantly, he has a great ear for improv, and he's tremendous fun to play and write music with. He is a fabulous guitar player on both acoustic and electric guitars, and he handles a bass beautifully as well. He is a patient and knowledgeable teacher who will be a great benefit to anyone who takes lessons from him!

Mark taught our son beginning at 10 years old and continued well into high school. Our son was playing songs within the first couple of lessons and grew exponentially. He later taught music himself and was accepted into the guitar performance program at the prestigious Belmont University. Today, our son is living and performing in Nashville, and it all dates back to seeds Mark planted. Mark is a patient teacher, a relevant musician, supportive, generous and intuitively knows the best approach to igniting a passion for music and nurturing talent. I highly recommend Mark as a teacher for students of any age and any skill level.

About David
My name is David, and I'm a guitar and bass instructor. I've been teaching guitar for about seven years, and I have experience teaching all ages and experience levels.

As well as being a teacher, I have experience performing in rock bands all over Atlanta since 2010. My experiences as a performer have made me both a better guitar player and a better teacher.

I'm a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, with a BPS in Interdisciplinary Music Studies (3.5 GPA). During my time at Berklee I learned a plethora of techniques and practices to help you be the best guitar player you can be.

If you are a more advanced player and are looking to speed up your playing, look no further. Over the years, I've developed a number of tricks and techniques to take your soloing and shredding to the next level.

My lessons are fun, engaging, and
effective. My lesson plans are specifically catered to each student whether you've never played a note in your life, you want to learn theory and songwriting, or if you're determined to be the best and fastest guitar player you can be. I specialize in rock, pop, punk, heavy metal, blues, and jazz.
