About Jason L.

South Windsor, CT
View Full Profile

For beginners, with no or very little experience. I recommend starting on an acoustic guitar as opposed to an electric as it is a better instrument to learn the basics. I can teach just about any style of acoustic.

About Jason
I provide private music lessons for guitar, bass, saxophone, music theory and songwriting. I have been teaching for over seven years. I combine my passion for teaching and music business expertise to help students achieve their goals. There are many lesson options available including at my studio in South Windsor CT, online or at your location. I work with all of my students and parents to create customized teaching plans based on students learning styles, interests and goals. I am available to students outside of lesson time 7 days a week. I provide performance, writing, purchase and music recommendations and take an active interest in each of my students learning. Lesson times are exactly as stated. I allow extra time in between students so as to ensure no overlaps and everyone gets their allotted time.

I try to develop versatility a
nd well rounded musicians no matter the skill or age level. Each student attends lessons for different reasons.Students are encouraged to explore all genres of music and I believe in exposing them to a wide variety of styles and methods. I also encourage students, if interested to write original material. There are no restrictions when it comes to music and I incorporate both old school and contemporary methods into my teaching. Students will learn first hand how what they are learning applies to the real world, including song performance from their favorite artists. I strongly encourage all students to develop an individual personal sense of style when it comes to music performance.

Performance anxiety has always prevented me from following through with lessons. Jason has been very patient and encouraging and I have been able to break through to a new level in just a few weeks. The pace he has set for me is perfect-challenging without being overwhelming.

About David P.

Atlanta, GA
View Full Profile

I have performed on and taught acoustic guitar for nearly 20 years.

I know hundreds of songs so I can always find songs which make beginners into players quickly.

I love soloing. I have several unique techniques I share with more advanced students to enable them to become stronger guitar players and overall musicians.

About David
I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities by members of their respective orchestras. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts. I continued theory lessons while in Boston at the New England Conservatory of Music. I attended Summer music programs at Apple Hill (New Hampshire) and Sewanee (Tennessee) and have extensive experience in orchestra, quartet, and chamber group environments.

Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist, violinist, and vocalist. I performed as bassist and backing vocalist with "Salty Dog" for nearly a decade. I am the co-founder of the Destin, FL band "Beach Mice." We perform for several weddings, corporate events, and benefits every year. Beach
Mice is also popular on the festival circuit on the Emerald Coast.

I relocated to Atlanta in November of 2013, and currently perform weddings, and at various restaurants and events in the Atlanta area.

I have taught individuals and group lessons on violin, bass, and guitar since 1997 and for several consecutive years at Playground Music in Fort Walton Beach.

I have several videos available on YouTube, and a website which is easily located through a simple Google search.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you fulfill your musical goals and ambitions. Happy Playing - Cheers! dp

About Donnie
Want to carry out at least one of your life goals? Well, if one of your goals is to learn the guitar, I can certainly help you!

Hi! My name is Donnie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons for several years and have loved helping my students, Kevin, Andrew, and Avery (all of whom have left 5-star reviews) reach their goals! I strive to not only give my students exercises and riffs to learn, but to teach them the reasoning and Music Theory behind those notes and chords.

My teaching style is committed to showing you "how" to learn and not just throwing various songs, scales, and techniques at you. I will be firm and provide you with the accountability you need to move forward.

My favorite artists (many of whom have songs that are taught as part of my curriculum) are The Beatles, Metallica, Santana, Stev
ie Ray Vaghan, Nirvana, Green Day, Johnny Cash, The Eagles, Avenged Sevenfold, and many more!

Additionally, in 2017 I was given Takelesson's "Student Favorite" award. This means that I have consistently ranked in the top 15% of Takelessons teachers based upon reviews, number of students, and student retention!

Guitar has been a love of mine since I was 9 years old and I enjoy helping other people realize their full potential! I have training in standard notation and tablature, and I am equipped with the resources necessary to get you going quickly!

I am currently attending Liberty University and working on earning a degree in Business Administration. Each week, I teach around 18-20 students! I am looking forward to helping you reach your goals!

Please feel free to use the "Ask a question" feature, I will reply to you as soon as possible.

About Sharon H.

Poway, CA

View Full Profile

The most important thing a teacher can do for a student is to guide him or her to a point where advancement becomes a self discipline.
This is accomplished by getting to know a student's learning style and adapting to it. And absolutely laying a strong foundation in fundamentals of music.
I've been teaching private lessons for over five years and all of my students have extensive instruction in music theory. I also encourage experimentation and creativity to work in some music composition.

About Sharon
Music has been a central pulse to my entire life. I started taking piano lessons at age 5 and picked up the clarinet in elementary school. By the end of middle school I was writing songs on the piano and guitar and trying to get anyone I knew to play in a band with me.
In High School I finally did manage to play in a band that would play shows in the Greater Rochester Area in New York State. Once I hit age 18, I packed my bags and moved to San Diego where I continued working on my craft and started my new life.
I never stopped playing music, writing songs, and trying to find people to collaborate with. By the time I started my career as a hairstylist, I knew that I had to share my love and passion for music with others and endeavored to build a student schedule.
My first students, as an adult, were my future in-laws. Mother, father and si
ster in-law learned piano, guitar and music theory with me. My late father in-law had a left leg amputation and was blind. We taped rice on the back of the guitar neck so he would have a tactile reference to his frets. It felt so good to bring a dream of his to life and to prove to naysayers that anyone can play, even if the challenges are far greater than average.
Within a year, I had enough referrals to fill 2 days of the week with students. I have held 3 recitals and plan on having a holiday recital this year.
I will never stop sharing music with others and look forward to meeting any new students granted via this platform.

I've been taking lessons with remy for the past 2 months and my ability has massively increased. Not only is remy a great guitar player but his patience makes him an awesome teacher. His understanding of music is fantastic and he is very good at breaking songs apart to make it easy for the student to learn. As well as teaching he also uses his own time to find songs for me to practice that would improve my
Technique. I would recommend remy to anybody from beginner to intermediate. Great guy and awesome teacher.
Thanks Remy

About Corey C.

Marietta, GA
View Full Profile

The most important thing for me when teaching lessons is helping my students feel connected to the music they are learning to create. Yes, I will teach you scales, chords, songs, riffs and all the rest, but my real goal is to teach you how to capture your instincts on the guitar and experience the thrill of that connection.

With 20+ years of professional experience, I am well versed in most genres; including Jazz, Blues, Rock, Latin and Folk.

My music has appeared on national and regional television and radio and I have performed in major venues around the country including The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Hilton Grand Ballroom in Chicago, Terminal West - Eddie’s Attic - Centennial Park in Atlanta and many more.

Depending on your skill level I will either create a custom roadmap to sharpen your playing or start you out according to my lesson plan for beginners.

I teach students ages 13 and up.

About Corey
My teaching method can be broken into two categories -

For beginners:

I will guide you through a time-tested and well-rounded method to get you up and running with the basics. I focus on fundamentals like basic scales and chords, optimal hand and finger placement, right hand picking technique etc. There is, however, plenty of room for having fun learning to play songs and riffs, because let’s be honest, that’s what we’re trying to achieve. So I always keep that in mind and use songs to teach the skills you need to learn.

By the end of your first month you will
Know what everything on your guitar is and does
Know how to change and tune your strings
Be able to play a major scale
Know how to play all of the most common major and minor chords
Be learning how to play a song we choose together

For intermediate to advanced stu

If you are interested in learning more about music theory, advanced scales, soloing/improvisation, songwriting and part writing, I am your teacher. Whether you’re working in a band and would like to develop more musical guitar parts, writing and recording or playing at local open jams, I have plenty to teach you.

We will
Have a custom tailored plan for strengthening the areas we choose to work on together
Learn how to read and transcribe music (or get better at it)
Sharpen your improvisation skills using methods and techniques I have honed over the years

For everyone:

You’ll quickly learn that I’m a pretty easy going and friendly guy. We should get along just fine. It is, however, very important to know one thing going in…

Except for family/work/health emergencies I don’t accept any student’s lack of practicing for their lesson. It may sound harsh. And it’s because it is. It’s maybe the only harsh thing about my lessons. I’m far more concerned about your development as a musician than I am about making money, and I want everyone to be clear on that from day one.

The financials are important to me, but the personal rewards are far more important.

That being said, a situation like that is very rare and typically lessons are extremely fun, challenging and rewarding!
