Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

I've been teaching beginning guitar lessons off and on for 15 years. I like to give students the basic elements of chords, scales, picking, and strumming so that they can get to work creating their own music or playing the music they like. Start with no musical background, or build upon your musical knowledge you've gained from other instruments.

About Andrew

I take time to understand how you learn best, and teach to your personal goals, whether that's doing well in school music programs, having fun on your own, or playing with others with professional aspirations.

Andy is an excellent instructor.

My 14 year old son had been playing drums for an hour or more every day for several months, and was making fair progress. He was convinced he could learn the drums on his own. But between his first and second lesson he improved exponentially. We were clearly going down the right path.

While my son was uncomfortable with the idea of taking lessons from someone he didn’t really know, Andy established a strong rapport with him by the end of lesson 1. And he was very eager to come back for lesson 2.

We intend to continue lessons with Andy for the foreseeable future.

I teach:
TENOR BANJO - MANDOLIN - TENOR GUITAR - ACOUSTIC GUITAR
Please go to the instrument listing and it will explain about that particular Instrument.

Hello,

I play 2 types of guitars:

Acoustic Guitar with 5 strings, DADGAD - Drop D & Standard tuning
&
Irish Tenor Guitar GDAE
A tenor guitar is smaller then a regular guitar, it has 4 steel strings.
It was initially developed in its acoustic form from Gibson and C.F. Martin so that the four-string tenor banjo players could double on guitar.
The tenor guitar has a distinctive style of its own. It can be heard in Country, Western Swing, Jazz, Contemporary Folk and Pop music.

I accommodate all students differently depending on their level, style of music they would like to learn and the pace that is easiest for them. You will learn melody and chords those are both essentials. We will work from a book as well as print outs and I will send you weekly recordings, you can feel free to contact me anytime between ...

Antonio is such a kind and patient teacher. He was able
to get me started on the basics of the tenor banjo in our first lesson and even made me my own binder of music for me to practice at home. It’s hard to come by someone who actually knows the tenor banjo and I feel lucky to have found a great teacher! He really look the time to make sure I felt comfortable practicing for our next session. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with Antonio.

Shon is very accommodating to helping you learn at your own pace. He is very patient, encouraging and insightful. Shon is very relaxed which helps me feel comfortable and not feel pressured. He gives reassurance all the time that the "growing pains" of learning guitar are normal things everyone fights through. I would highly recommend him.

Great for beginners!
Eban P.
Will was everything I expected. I was looking for someone to teach naturally as opposed to rote (boring) learning. I'm sure Will can do rote but he did what I asked.

He really knows his music and can teach in a way that gets my son directly into actually playing music, which is exactly what I was after.

He’s really flexible and can take anything and turn it into something good.

The pace was spot-on, matching perfectly the maximum my son could understand at the time.

I think my son learnt the absolute maximum he could in that short space of time and he learned a LOT.

I'm glad I found Paul on takelessons.com. I was looking for someone to help me take my decent but untrained voice to the next level. Paul is committed to helping me advance toward my goal of being a singer-songwriter. In addition to the exercises we work on to strengthen my voice and gain control, he has given me some strategies to track my progress and improve more quickly. He also encourages me to take risks and go out and sing karaoke. He is caring and authentic and genuinely invested in my growth, and I am becoming a better musician because of it. Thank you, Paul!!

Thanks to Eric I'm reading and writing music again, learning a variety of songs from some of the greats such as SRV, Hendrix, and Gary Moore, and exploring the world of jazz guitar - something I'd never thought I'd do.

He's the master."

"perfect fit..

I have been lessons for a little over a month and have significantly improved. I'm an adult student working 80-90 hrs a week, so with that in mind, the lesson load is doable and relaxed, but there is plenty of material each week to see the improvement in your skills. She also is approaching the lessons based on what I want to learn, not what a "by the letter" teacher thinks you should know. The studio location is not only chill but convient, literally around the corner. Highly recommend Indigo for anyone picking up a guitar."

5 Delightful Jazz Guitar Licks - Tabs and Audio

Having a few guitar licks up your sleeve is super helpful when you're improvising. Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few of his favorite jazz guitar licks... Before we begin playing these jazz guitar licks, it's a good idea to get familiar with the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale is a more versatile and useful scale than you might think. While being an easily-recognized basis for blues, rock, and country solos, it can be (and frequently is) a scale used for jazz solos, too. A …
