Using a variety of method books and years of experience I teach students chords so that they can learn some of their favorite songs quickly!
For more advanced students, we will be focusing on scales, finger picking technique, and other techniques to get you playing like a pro.
Hey there! I'm excited you dropped by my profile. I'm even more excited that you are thinking about taking music lessons or are planning on giving the gift of music lessons to a loved one. A little bit about me so you can understand how my teaching benefits my students: I went to DePaul University in Chicago,IL and studied Music (voice) and Religious Studies. I have been teaching guitar, voice, banjo, drum and piano lessons professionally for three years, however, I've been teaching on and off again for over ten. Through that time I've taught diverse groups of people, all with different skill levels. No matter where you are on your musical journey or who you are, I can help get you where you want to go!I also have extensive experience as a professionally touring musician. I currently ...
Thomas was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has attended Grand Rapids Community College, Aquinas College and Western Michigan University. He remains active in Grand Rapids as a writer, composer and performer. *** Lesson Details *** I believe that music lessons should be interesting and fun! My experiences have taught me that we play our instruments not just as a hobby, but to further our growth as individuals. While studying with me, one can expect to learn dedication and discipline in a comfortable and nurturing environment. I aim to teach my students the music that inspired them to pick up the instrument. I use a variety of different method books and instructional tools for my students. After the first few months of instruction, a student can expect to have their knowledge ...
I teach guitar lessons for beginner level up to intermediate. I use FJH curriculum for younger students and New York Guitar school curriculum for older students. Students will learn how to read music, play chords and rhythms, and learn how to play their favorite songs!
I love singing! I've been singing for as long as I can remember, and I've been creating songs and playing guitar since shortly after that. I have a Bachelor's in Music from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, MI and I have been a full time working musician for two and a half years. After graduating, I worked for two years at Baker College in Owosso, MI as a tutor for English and Math in the school library and eventually started teaching a basic English class. During these years I developed a passion for teaching. I love helping students discover skills they never thought they had, and helping them develop those skills so they can become even better. Whether I'm teaching Singing, Performance, Songwriting, I strive to find ways to help each student achieve their goals. ...
My lessons are tailored to each individual student based on their goals and skill level. While being thorough, I try to keep the lessons relaxed and fun. Playing the guitar is fun, and learning to do so can be fun too!
I have over 30 years of experience with the guitar and would be happy to share my knowledge with you. Lessons are given in my home studio in a relaxed and casual setting. I instruct basic music theory, guitar playing techniques, and how to properly practice. I also go into guitar setup and maintenance, how to properly care for and get the most out of your instrument. A guitarist should know his guitar....intimately! I will teach you how to properly tune, intonate and service your instrument. Additionally, I like to touch on the intangibles of being a musician and to help any student eventually have the confidence to perform well at a live venue. Playing for an audience is a big part of why many of us picked up the guitar in the first place....we want to perform! I can help you ...
Hello! My name is Allen and I have been playing guitar for about 5 years and I would love to help you get started or learn some more advanced techniques. I have a more extensive background in piano with 10 years of experience. Some other instruments I have played include the clarinet, bass clarinet, and trombone. In my free time, I love playing volleyball and basketball as well as fishing and playing video games. I started out playing electric guitar but now I primarily play a finger picking style on my acoustic guitar. I have taught many friends many different songs and techniques over the years on guitar. Having two brothers much younger than me, I am great around kids and have taught my brothers and other children as well. Teaching a skill such as guitar is not an easy task. ...
