Blues guitar is an essential foundation for any modern guitarist, whether you just love the blues, or want to use it to spice up your rock, jazz, or even country playing. I've been teaching aspects of the blues to my students for over 10 years, and try to do everything I can to properly demonstrate blues technique, style, and the theory and knowledge of what makes the blues such an integral part of modern music.

In our lessons we will cover different types of blues progressions, accompaniment and chording styles, common rhythms, scales and lead techniques, bending, vibrato, and other articulations, as well as common ideas in phrasing and playing against a vocalist.

As always, my teaching philosophy is to give you the tools and knowledge to bring out your own personal musical style, and to give you your own voice.

About Jordan
I received my education at the University of Wisconsin, majoring in Jazz Guitar. I've studied with some of the best guitarists in the Midwest, and have performed live and in recording studios all across the country in a variety of styles (Rock, Metal, Bluegrass, Jazz, Classical, Country). I've performed internationally, and my playing has been featured on several prime time television shows. I've always had a love of music, and it’s a passion that I try to instill in all of my students!

Through focus on note reading, chords, improvisation, and technique, I try to give my students tools that they can take with them throughout their musical journey, whether playing music for fun or professionally!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to be laid back and very individual with my approach. I always introduce a curriculum designed to teach bas
ic chords, note reading, and basic theory, but I also understand that each student has a particular set of interests, and I want to inspire them to follow those interests. Whether it's Rock, Blues, Country, Folk, or Classical, I want to give my students the tools and understanding that they need to excel at the music that drives them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have everything that they need to practice the materials that I give them, including an instrument, amplifier and tuner if necessary, and a music stand. I provide all lesson materials.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock, country, metal, blues, and jazz with an emphasis on theory and technique.

Jordan was very helpful right from the start. He listened to me on where I am at and where I want to be. He showed me a few things that we will work towards and then helped me understand my instrument much better. Gave me some fun new things to practice before the next lesson. If you're looking for a lesson that is interactive and fun I recommend Jordan and the online thing is supper easy and handy. I don't think it could have gone any better. The lesson was 45 minutes and it felt like 10.

Jordan is a fantastic teacher! He expertly and patiently guided my young son from essentially 0 to reading notes and playing them on the guitar in about half an hour. He is clearly an experienced musician who loves to teach. We are looking forward to the next lesson.

I will show students how to play common blues chords & scales, rhythms, melodic fills, turnarounds and solos over various blues progressions and keys. Slide guitar will also be included. This is one of my specialties.

About Dan
*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring my guitar, metronome, pen, etc.
The students should have their own guitar and amp if electric.
They should also have the appropriate books - mel bay note reading and a blank music staff and tab book.

*** Specialties ***
My method focuses on learning scales, chords & arpeggios and then showing the student how to apply them through knowledge of music theory. They will learn how to create music on their own as well as understand the music they listen to. I will also show my students how to play various popular songs and how to improvise. My areas of expertise are in rock, pop, blues, rockabilly, metal, country and jazz. I also teach note reading, fingerstyle and classical guitar.

I can teach all levels and many styles. I make it easy for you to learn at your own pace so you can achieve your goals and have fun playing music.

About Thomas
Tom has a music degree focused in guitar performance and a combined professional teaching and performance career that spans over twenty years.

Tom began teaching in 1994 and still practices today instructing students of all ages on guitar and bass techniques, as well as music theory.

Tom is very laid back and embraces working at the pace that each of his students feels most comfortable. Lessons are about the student’s ambitions. If it is learning their favorite songs or a deep dive into music theory, jazz improvisation or songwriting it can be covered in strides that seem fit to the student. Books can be used for guidance and a custom lesson plan created that will fit specific criteria desired to be achieved by the student. Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it!!

As an adult learning to play an instrument for the first time, very little has come naturally. I had tried two other instructors prior to Derek and felt as though I made little progress with them. Derek's approach is much more intuitive and the progress more obvious. great teacher with a sound approach.

Fort Collins, CO

I can teach rock, blues, jazz, country, and any other style guitar you wanna learn. I bring 17+ years of teaching and industry experience to the table.

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

I want to have you walking out of the lesson happy, and excited to go home and practice some new material. With me you'll learn about guitar, but you'll also learn about music and how playing can help you in life (perseverance, basic math foundations, etc.)

About Chris
I am a jazz guitarist based out of beautiful Los Angeles, California. I received and Associate of Arts degree in Music in 2015, and have been pursuing a bachelors in Jazz Studies since then.

While in community college I really grew into my own as a musician and discovered that I love jazz. Not only the music, but the history of how it formed as well as the differences from classical music. When at school I stood out from the other guitarists because I was hungry to learn and that attitude will hopefully follow me for the rest of my life.

Thats what I'd hope to pass on the students; that knowledge, be it music, english, math, physiology, etc. is the key to everything. And that it doesn't have to be all stuffy and boring! I tailor my lessons to the student wether its guitar, piano, ukulele, etc. and my main objective is to learn and have
fun, so the learning is reinforced with good natured thoughts. This will set up the student to actually want to practice!

As a musician I've been in a couple of groups, and starting to get a jazz group together recently. I also try to utilize the computer to produce when possible so I can learn about that aspect of music. My passion is improvisation/composition, because I hope to one day leave songs behind that people can play forever and be influenced by them like so many have influenced me.

Mr. Chris is really pleasant and fun teacher. He was on time and made his first lesson very interesting. He reviewed my son patiently for whatever he has learned before and then introduced him to some new notes. He didn’t rush with the time and made sure my son is comfortable with him.
Looking forward to the next class with him.👍🏻

Chris has been an excellent teacher and has done a fantastic job of helping me not only improve my playing ability, but also improve my understanding of music theory. He is clearly very educated in all styles of music and he had great lesson plans that were specifically tailored for my level of playing. Lastly, he does a fantastic job of making sure I'm having fun while learning music.

My son has never played a musical instrument so I wasn't sure how this would go, but Christopher has really connected with him. He came home and actually practiced during the week! And Christopher always comes out after the lesson and gives me a little update which matters to me as a mom. I also appreciate how he doesn't just boot him out the door at the end of the lesson. AND my son is actually talking about music! Definitely learning more than just some chords. Good instructor who obviously loves and respects music. :)

Graduate of the Berklee College of music, 8+ years of teaching experience teaching all age groups and skill levels. I specialize in rock, pop, blues, and jazz.

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.
