Jon A.

Cincinnati, OH

I teach and perform styles ranging from classical and Jazz to country, classic rock and even metal. I enjoy teaching all styles and ability levels.

About Jon

I have been playing guitar since the age of 9. I have studied Classical, and Jazz at CCM's Prep Dept. in middle school and throughout high school as well as rock, folk, country etc. with other local teachers. I started teaching lessons at the age of 18 in local music stores and have never stopped. While doing this I attended The College of Mount St. Joseph where I studied Classical and Jazz guitar as well as Music Ed. In addition to my 22 years of private lesson experience, I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching general music in elementary schools. I believe it is my years as a s
tudent and instructor that enable me to be an effective teacher, having had learned what worked for me as a student, and what has shown to work as a teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
I cater my lesson to the individual. I like for students to have a structured practice routine and working knowledge of music and their instrument, but it has to be fun. I have students who learn Classical, rock, and Jazz. Each lesson is different. Some people just want to be able to play their favorite songs by a camp fire, and others want to go on to perform at Carnegie Hall. I enjoy teaching both lessons and put forth the same enthusiasm for each one. You get out of the guitar or bass what you put into it in terms of learning and practicing. The level of achievement is up to you, I will help guide you to meet your goals regardless of how large or small they are.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Spare music room: guitars, amps, bass; computer with recording software, ProTools seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have all the equipment necessary. I would like the student to have an instrument, but if not I can provide one for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I'm really pretty versatile. Over 18 years of teaching anywhere from 80 to 100 students a week will do that.

I have been working with Jon for coming up on a year and i am thrilled. a great guy who has the knowledge/skill with the guitar, but also excellent ability to communicate. even when i couldn't get something (my own inability) he found other ways of presenting/teaching that make a difference - i highly recommend Jon for beginners (i was one) and experienced players alike

Amazing teacher!

Jon is a very good teacher. He takes the time to explain the concepts of the lesson for the week and then presents a good example of style and technique to help make me a better player.

Jacob R.

Dayton, OH

Students will be expected to supply their own instruments, equipment and materials. They must also bring a notebook to write down songs they are interested in and/or artists and groups they would like to study. Students interested in classical or jazz study will need to purchase specific books and materials at the teachers discretion.

About Jacob

If you want to learn piano, voice or guitar basics, this is a great place to start! I am available to teach at a student home and I can teach at any age or level. I like to have fun while encouraging a student to work and study hard to gain a strong foundation in music. I have my B.A. in music and I have studied at the graduate level. I am a professional singer and stage performer, I play piano and sing at churches and weddings, and I also have a rock band! Whatever your interest in music, whether you just want to learn a couple of songs on the guitar or you would like to become a studied an
d versatile musician, I can help you achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to learn the basics of music technique on their instrument. I encourage students to work hard and I advise regular practice with the help of parents to accomplish goals. Along with weekly assignments, I like students to choose a song they want to play or sing because music is also about having fun while you're learning!

*** Studio Equipment ***
LivingRoom: grand piano, chairs, music stand (can supply guitar and bass guitar amp if necessary)

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some music, tuners and cords. I expect students to provide their own instruments and additional materials and music.

*** Specialties ***
I am classically trained and incorporate this training in all aspects of my teaching. I am also familiar with different styles of jazz, rock, pop and world music.

Spencer E.

Cincinnati, OH

Starting where you are to get you to where you want to be makes sense. You have music in your head that you've been listening to all your life; I take the songs you know and find the best way to break them down for you. I help you access them through your guitar, allowing you to recreate the music you already know.

I have had great success with this approach over the years. It provides built-in flexibility and accommodations for your interests in music, even as they change with time!

About Spencer

These lessons are about you and your personal aspirations in music. Break into playing music for the first time or bust past that professional plateau. I will help you set realistic short-term goals that aim at whatever long-term goals you already have (of being a rock star, fluent improviser, early childhood song-leader, praise-band leader, rock star, songwriter, garage/basement/bedroom music troll . . . rock star).

I teach beginners, professionals, and everyone in between. I hold a masters in music education, and have taught most styles of music, including (but never limited!) classic ro
ck, new rock, pop rock, rockabilly, blues, jazz, folk, country, bluegrass, Klezmer, solo acoustic, classical, and the Beatles (who get their own genre).

Spencer transfers his genuine appreciation of music and extensive guitar knowledge through a versatile teaching approach to meet individual needs. He fosters a challenging and fun learning session. He quickly tapped in to my musical interests and goals (I'm in my 50s) and instructed me, in a way, that encouraged both growth and confidence in playing. Spencer mentored and advised me on songwriting development, as well as provided practical advice/feedback on performance. If you want to learn about guitar, improve on your skills, and have fun doing it, Spencer is your guy.

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons from Spencer for 2 years. Spencer's professionalism and his ability to keep my teen interested in learning new music are the main reasons she has become the musician she is.

Students learn to practice effectively and efficiently, and to play with security and confidence.

About Todd

About Guitar Lessons With Todd

"Todd is a very gifted and motivated guitarist with an uncommon aptitude for teaching."
Rodney Stucky

"Todd is passionate about teaching, and dedicates himself to this with utmost energy and purpose. He is always extremely successful in producing a high level of achievement with every student." Jeffrey Van

One of the most important duties of a competent instructor is teaching students how to practice. This is just as true for the rank beginner as it is for the advanced student, or even professional. Everyone can learn to play music and play it well if
given competent instruction. Learning to play well is learning about the mind and body, and how to use it to one's potential. As the awareness of the self is refined, not only is the playing improved, but the potential for greatness is elevated. Learning to perform music with security and confidence is fun!
