*** Lesson Details ***
The best lessons I've ever had were lessons in wh
ich I walked away saying "Man, I never KNEW that!" and it's my goal for you have that experience, too. Whether its how to play that chord or write a melody, how to get the best sound out of those stomp boxes, or when genres like shoegazer and post-rock were invented and what they sound like... there's something to be learned in every lesson.

The most important benefit of taking lessons from me is my experience. I started teaching casually as a teenager and have followed every opportunity since. My passion for music has allowed me to teach private lessons (10+ years), middle school guitar class (including a guitar ensemble), and college-level music theory classes. Extensive experience in writing, recording, and performing has only helped that passion to grow. I've developed a method to blend theory with practice every step of the way, and make the journey fun!

Parker is a great teacher & a really nice guy. I have been working with him for about 18 months, and I have come a very long way in my technical ability as well as my understanding of music theory. He has a very low key, positive approach to our lessons, which makes them relaxing and fun, but at the same time he has the ability to get me out of my "comfort zone" and doing things that are new and challenging, from dabbling in different genres to creating new arrangements of old favorite songs to diving into the theory behind iconic riffs and chord progressions.
He has become a friend and I look forward to all of our online sessions.

NOW is the time to take your playing to the Next Level. I can help you play your favorite songs on guitar!

I strive to make each lesson exciting and personable, which is something that you wouldn't find in trying to teach yourself by looking up information independently online.

Simply choose this plan and select the amount of time you would like to work with me weekly. I would suggest messaging me before you schedule, so that I can assure that your musical interests align with the genres I teach.

About Michael
Hello future guitar aficionados! Now is the time for you to unlock your potential and take your interest in the guitar to the next level. Whether it is for a future career, a hobby, or just to be able to play a song for your friends, I can develop a personalized plan to get you the results you desire.

I am currently a student at Cal State Fullerton and also a musician with performing and recording experience since the age of 14. My passion for music began ever since I had heard Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin on the radio. Since then, I have played in restaurants, weddings, bars and other venues all around Orange County and LA as a lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, and bassist. The music that I specialize in playing are mostly acoustic, Pop, alternative rock, R&B, and classic rock. I like to song write and record my own music as wel
l and therefore have acquired a strong attention to detail and solid work ethic to achieve my desired results.

I believe in creating a positive and exciting work environment where we can have you develop at your own pace in a productive way. A great teacher is one that customizes their lesson to fit the student's individual needs while making the lesson educational and fun!

Being that I am one of the younger guitar teachers out there, I am able to better relate to younger students on a more personal level and possess an energetic teaching style and willingness to better myself as a teacher and musician just as much as my student.

I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you may have!

I play professionally as the guitar player for hard rock band Dead Poet Society. I love playing music - and want you to as well. Lessons with me are fun, relaxed, and easy-going. I'm a Californian surfer with a super chill mindset. I also graduated Berklee College of Music in Boston for guitar.

About Jack (John)
When he is not touring the world with his band Dead Poet Society, Jack is enjoying teaching his students guitar. Jack has had nearly a decade of teaching experience and continues to help students thrive at any skill level. His methods are relaxed but meticulous, and modeled after his very learnings at Berklee College of Music. Students love learning with Jack. They instantly appreciate his motivating and calm attitude. Jack takes different approaches for each student. Ones that strive to be music theory savants will go the long route through method books and rigorous theory. Others who wish to explore the instrument before deciding whether or not to commit serious time to it, will be treated with a fun, explorative atmosphere. He has taught students as young as five and as old as sixty-five, and makes sure to enjoy every lesson as much as
his students do.

I have been teaching guitar professionally for over 4 years in the Atlanta area. As a recent graduate of Kennesaw State University with a degree in Jazz Guitar Performance, I have developed a deep love for music and the guitar which I thoroughly enjoy sharing with my students. I currently teach and perform, traveling across the United States with various groups performing a multitude of genres, all of which I love teaching and sharing with eager students! I was not a "natural" guitarist, so I have a great method for making guitar/music make sense so that all of my students can be successful. I look forward to working with you!

About Patrick
I am a professional guitarist, composer, and educator living in the Greater Atlanta Area. I started playing guitar while in high school at Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School. I owe a lot of my success to my time spent here as this school is consistently ranked one of the top schools in the nation.
I wasn't a "naturally gifted' musician, so if you are just starting out don't worry! I've been there and I have picked up a lot of tips and tricks along the way to help you out!
After high school, I decided to further pursue my passion for music and was accepted to Kennesaw State University as a Jazz Performance Major. Shortly after arriving in Kennesaw I began performing all over Atlanta as a sideman in various groups and even started a few groups of my own. I have had some great opportunities to tour and travel across the United States playing
music, it is a really great feeling.I was a recipient of the GA Music Hall of Fame Talent Award in 2014 where I performed on national television for the first time. In 2016 I recorded an album with a good friend of mine, Morgan Guerin, entitled "The Saga" which reached #3 on the iTunes Jazz Charts on the first day of its release.

I have recently graduated from KSU with my Jazz Degree and have been teaching and performing extensively. Teaching has been a very rewarding part of my life, it has given me the opportunity to learn and grow as a musician in ways that performing simply cannot compete with. I really look forward to working with you and being a part of your musical journey!

Mastering Lead Guitar: Arpeggios for Beginners
Want to learn how to spice up your songs with guitar arpeggios? For many guitar players, learning how to play a memorable solo is a constant journey. A big part of this is knowing what notes to play and when to play them. The first step is to learn how to play a scale over the key of the song (if you're not familiar with basic scales, check out this article: Guitar Scales 101). The journey does not end there, however. Once you're comfortable playing in key, it’s time to follow each of the ch
20 Different Types of Guitars & The Legends Who Played Them [Infographic]
While certain types of guitars are standard in modern culture, the instrument has a wide variety of expressions that is nearly impossible to tame. From the ancient Greek kithara to the guitar-like lute from pre-modern Spain, the many different types of guitars vary just as much as the people who play them. Some types of acoustic and electric guitars are more common than others. Steel string dreadnought acoustics and Stratocaster-style electrics are likely to be the first thing that pops i

Luckily for you, learning how to hold a guitar pick the right way is easy. Plus, once you master your guitar picking posture, it will be easier to learn more techniques down the road.
