About Rebecca

I have 50 years of teaching experience, from beginners to advanced students. I also teach the people no one else thinks are teachable because I work with people from where they are and find their best learning styles. Several of my students are now professional musicians, but that's not everyone's

Positive experience. Rebecca gives clear instructions and helpful suggestions.
Instruction space is a bit cramped but do-able.

Rebecca was an amazing teacher. As an adult who was new to singing - I was unsure how it would go. The lessons ended up being very fun and I really learned a lot. I am thankful for how the lessons turned out and would consider taking more in the future.

Play the music you want to play. I often use a combination of styles to get you to advance in your guitar skills whether you are a stone beginner or advanced. I've been teaching for over 20 years and can tailor lessons to the individual using the music you want and my large repertoire ranging from simple American Folk through Advanced modern music. I can get you to accompany,solo and also read music too( if you wish). I have concise approaches to all matters of technique, scale work and arpeggios. You can be confident that you are coming to an experienced teacher/player who cares deeply about music and loves helping the student progress.

Billy is a patient instructor who is perfect for a beginner with some musical knowledge. I feel like we accomplished quite a bit in one lesson and I am looking forward to advancing under his guidance! #totallyworthit
Flaminia D.
I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!

I specialize in beginner/intermediate level basics, with rock and blues genres specifically. I focus extensively on the topics of improvisation and on developing your personal voice on the instrument, along with solid, natural technique.

I believe in growing as a guitarist not just through technical proficiency, but also in overall musicianship. My approach to learning songs is not just being able to play a song, but to understand why it works, and how you can translate the things you hear into techniques and ideas you can utilize in your own songwriting.

About Rachel

I'm a guitarist based out of the Atlanta, GA area with 9+ years experience playing, teaching and performing music. My influences cover a wide spectrum, and I'm most at home playing in a blues, rock or indie style. I am currently working on a certificate in jazz guitar from Berklee College of Mus

I am a dedicated, talented and enthusiastic music instructor. I love sharing my knowledge on the joys of making music with my students. I teach because I want to teach. Not because I have to teach.

The disciplines that I have acquired through my music have helped me in all areas of my life, and I love the idea that I can share some of those lessons with other people.

I love seeing a child's eyes light up the first time they play a song or grasp a concept. I enjoy working with adults whose life long ambition has been to learn to play an instrument, and have finally found the time for their studies.

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do.

Private Guitar Teacher

I am a self-taught musician with 15 years of experience playing electric and acoustic guitar. My lessons begin by learning what inspires you as a musician, and working to take you where you want to go! Learning some of your favorite songs is often a great place to start. By learning a variety of music, you'll quickly begin to notice patterns & understand basic theory on what notes work together well. From there, you can apply that knowledge to improvisation, as well as songs you may want to write!

From those first few lessons, there's a million different ways we can explore the guitar together. With my lessons, I offer recording time in my home studio where you can learn how to write, record, produce, and mix fully arranged songs!

Reach out to say hi, and let me know what some of your immediate goals and questions are!

Specialties: Indie, Rock, Pop, Alternative, Psychedelic, Folk, Acoustic.
Open to students of all ages.

Mitch gave lessons to my son about 6 years ago (when Mitch still lived in St. Louis). He still picks up the guitar a few times each week to unwind, and often mentions things Mitch taught him while practicing.

"I have been a student with Ahmad for about 6 months doing beginning acoustic guitar. I decided to try Ahmad based on the reviews, and am glad I did. Of all the music teachers I have had (previously I took piano lessons), I enjoy Ahmad's teaching style the most. He has taught me a good blend of theory and practice. This has kept lessons and practice interesting, while still letting me feel like I am learning all of the important fundamentals.

Ahmad's flexibility with make up lessons is also appreciated. There have been times where my work schedule has been hectic, so I had to miss a lesson, and he was able to squeeze my lesson in later in the week. There have also been a few times where I have had follow up questions about a lesson, sent him an e-mail, and gotten a response within a few hours.

I recently wanted to get an electric guitar, but had no idea what to look for, so I asked Ahmad for some recommendations. Instead of just giving me recommendations, he offered to go to a guitar store with me to try some out. We went and he helped me pick out a great beginner electric guitar!

Ahmad is clearly passionate about music and willing to go above and beyond for his students. I highly recommend Ahmad to anyone who is thinking about taking guitar lessons."

"For many years I have tried to learn guitar from books, DVD's and YouTube videos. I even tried a guitar shop instructor. It pretty much got me all kinds of confused with guitar. Then I found out Stacey offers guitar lessons online. Stacey has worked hard to undo all my bad habits and show me the proper techniques. He has taught me to use my ears and not depend on tablature for learning songs and create music. At the end of every lesson he makes sure I totally understand what needs to be practiced for the week. I am not only very thankful to have such a great teacher but one who is as amazing of a guitarist as Stacey"

"Jeff Stetson can take you anywhere you want to be as a musician

There are musicians and there are technicians.
I took weekly lessons from Jeff for 5 years and still go to him often for advice on song composition.
What I gained from Jeff, besides a true understanding of guitar playing fundamentals, is an understanding of how music "works"--the harmony behind it. From Jeff's instruction, I understand the theory of music--how scales are formed, how chords are built from these scales, and how to read and write all of it.
As a heavy rock fan, Jeff also helped me train my ear to hear the intricacies of jazz, which has taken my songwriting--both electric and acoustic--to a whole new level.
I strongly recommend Jeff Stetson to anyone who truly wants to learn how to play any stringed instrument, especially guitar, at any level. He will teach you how and/ or why depending on an individual's goals."
