My son has been taught by Michael year round for about 4 years now. When my son first came to Michael, he didn't know anything about the acoustic guitar. But now my son is a great guitar player. My son was able to learn his first song really fast and was so excited to play it for me. This is what is great about learning guitar with Michael. Its not just about chords and theory, he understands that kids want to play songs. My son has learned many songs from different genres. Under Michael's careful instruction and guidance my son has gained the confidence needed to teach himself new songs. Michael's way of teaching is fun and efficient. We are very pleased to have Michael as a teacher.
Carla
Michael Keplinger is a wonderful guitar teacher. My daughter has been taking lessons from him for 2.5 years, and her skill has grown by leaps and bounds. Mr. K, as he is known by his students, is patient and understanding, both with parents that forget things and with the students. He keeps his lessons interesting and focused, and based on the skill of the student. He works with them on a wide range of music and skills that help keep the students interested and growing as musicians. We have taken lessons with him both in person and online, and both have worked well. I highly recommend Michael Keplinger as a guitar teacher.
Eric
Michael is a knowledgeable and patient teacher who is capable of adjusting on the fly to the student and their ability to learn. During lessons he has been able to draw out what I have learned in the distant past and expand upon it in a way that has begun to build a good foundation for me to practice with. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching 20 years. Classical Guitar technique is the foundation for most fingerpicking styles. Exploring the repertoire of Bach, the classic guitar composers - Sor, Guliani, Carcassi and learning how to arrange melodies for the guitar even if not written for guitar are some of the goals when I teach this style. My specialty is Brazilian Guitar and I have available vast repertoire of guitar music for the "Classical Guitar" plus I've explored the works of Piazolla and Leo Brouwer to name 2 guitarists. For Beginners we begin with 2 fingers, basic reading, getting a feel for your instrument, all made fun through the use of melodic material from various sources, sometimes pop tunes chosen by the student

Billy is a patient instructor who is perfect for a beginner with some musical knowledge. I feel like we accomplished quite a bit in one lesson and I am looking forward to advancing under his guidance! #totallyworthit
Flaminia D.
I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!

Charles has been my teacher for a few weeks now and I am so happy I found him on takelessons. He is an amazing guitar player but also an amazing teacher, he always comes prepared and the class is well organized. He is also open to hearing suggestions to learn your favorite songs. He is very encouraging which gives the motivation to keep going which is so important for a beginner. I am already seeing great progresses after only a few weeks, and I can't wait for more lessons this year. Highly recommend him if you are looking to get started with the guitar! You will really enjoy learning with him, he is also a very cool and fun guy so you can learn in a nice environment, whether it is in his studio at his place, at your place or online.
Gaurav Jung Pande
I learnt music theory and improvisation with Charles for 4 months in New York.

Charles is highly approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He walks the perfect line between making his students feel comfortable whilst also pushing them to become better in every single session.

I got a solid grasp of the basics of music theory and was able to fully improvise in different scales at the end of the course. The growth I had was tremendous - all thanks to Charles' guidance.

Charles will take the time to fully understand the needs, goals and struggles of his students. He will be there for them inside and outside of class time because he genuinely cares about music and his students becoming better.
Nicolas Parada
Super talented, yet super down to earth. Great teacher and ridiculously knowledgeable, yet super funny. I had been a self taught bass player for years before taking Charles' course at NYU and was hoping to try out a new instrument and learn it the "right way" through lessons, expecting things to be very academic. But Charles works in a way that is surprisingly individual-based, and so that while you do learn a lot, you do so at your own pace and having fun along the way. By blending your own formal course goals with his own knowledge and incredible feel for the instrument alongside the songs you want to learn (often times you learn them together- he is great at picking up new, unfamiliar tunes by ear) it creates an experience that keeps you picking up the guitar long after you leave the classroom. Where I am now with guitar and where I started at first are miles and miles apart thanks to him, and he's just a super chill guy who likes playing guitar. Who also happens to be ridiculously qualified. 10/10 would recommend.

I am a nurturing and encouraging teacher. Learning the guitar as a child was really difficult and frustrating for me and I haven't forgotten about it. This helps me guide students through the different stages of learning that often have new students giving up before they've given themselves a chance.

Lessons are tailored to the needs/interests of the student unless they prefer that I guide them in a direction that I see fit. I've been playing and teaching for 25 years. Don't let my degrees in classical guitar give you the wrong idea about me. I also love rock, blues, country and pop.

About Eric

My name is Eric and I love the guitar, music and teaching. I enjoy getting to know my students and helping them achieve their goals. From learning new songs and chords to learning how to read notation I can definitely help you!

"Jason is a remarkable teacher! He truly has been able to break through a mental block I've always had regarding thinking in chords rather than just reading notes. His desire to help the student reach a personal goal is so evident. Jason remained so confident that a 'light bulb' would come on that I started to believe it myself. He has put me on a good path now and did it with his confidence in me and by providing the right tools. Thank you for your patience, confidence in me, and your calm, pleasant way of teaching, Jason."

"The reason why I called Jim was to help me with my classical guitar pieces for my ASU audition. I had very little experience in this side and of music and looking for a teacher was important. I hired Jim for an hour every Sunday the past month of January. The way he approached the music pieces and the knowledge he had was very impressive. Jim is also very patient and lets you have control over the lesson and start or suggest were to begin the lecture. I was able to lean a piece and know how to approach classical guitar thanks to Jim. There were somethings that I din't like about some of the lessons, There were times that when Jim was lecturing, he would get side tracked and forget about the topic and not even look at the music for a great majority of the hour, it was defiantly frustrating. Nonetheless, Jim is a great teacher, always appreciated when he stayed over the hour to further discus the piece. For these reasons I have decided to give Jim a four out of five rating."
