I promote creative flow and feeling hee music in the guitar as well as provide an efficient and linear approach to guitar (music) theory that is palatable.
I prefer to keep things simple and move at the pace of the student as they are comfortable. No use in rushing a good thing.

Each student's training program is uniquely based on his/her personal goals. This depends on individual needs to include teaching basic technique, music theory, chord inversions, scales, improvisation, site reading and/or ear training as part of the process.

Beginners, intermediate and advanced level musicians are encouraged to sign up to increase their playing skills and/or knowledge of marketing and branding.

Remember... becoming a fluent musician requires practice, practice and more practice!

Great learning experience with Eric.
David
I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.
Kevin P.
Great experience! Looking forward to more.

Online Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for 6 years and love seeing my students discover their own musicality and style through guitar! I specialize in teaching school-age kids, teens, adult beginners, and secondary instrument learners.

As a beginner, you’ll learn to keep your strumming steady while changing between 2-5 basic chords within a few lessons. You will find in just a few lessons that the songs you know and love are actually accessible and playable! With continued practice, you’ll start to create your own songs using the chords you know, and you will learn more complex chords, strumming patterns, fingerpicking, transposing, and reading melodies on the staff.

I'll make your lessons meaningful to you, by creating many of my own visual aids to meet your level and interests. We will blend your favorite modern genres with “classic” and “classical” tunes, and explore composition and songwriting along the way! I strive to always give you just enough detailed, technical instruction for the ...

Sarah is a kind and knowledgeable hoop instructor. I couldn’t hoop on my waist at all when I started taking lessons with her and now I am able to keep the hoop going indefinitely. And while working to improve my waist hooping I learned a variety of off-body tricks and combinations. Sarah is great at tailoring lessons to any skill level and focusing on your individual goals and limitations. She is also really friendly, approachable, and open to feedback. I would definitely recommend!
Caitlin
I have taken both in-person group classes and online group classes with Sarah. She always does a great job of catering to the students' levels and including some things everyone can do as well as some new things for everyone to learn!
Noelle
Sarah is such a wonderful teacher with just the right balance of patience, sterness, and fun, perfect for my young child just learning to play.

"I had told Jonathan prior to his first visit that I wanted my son to actually take his time and learn, not goof around. I also wanted music theory to be a majority of his lesson, rather than my son continuing to learn by ear. Jonathan definitely took the course I wanted him to take."

From beginners to more advanced players, William is phenomenal. I worked at a large music store in Tempe for 12 years and for the last several years William was the only instructor I sent my clients to. I don't vouch for many people but I am more than confident vouching for William."

The Loog Guitar Revolution: Guitar Lessons for Kids Will Never be the Same

As a music educator and performer, I’m always interested in learning about new products and tools that can help students succeed.  When I discovered the Loog Guitar, a 3-string interchangeable guitar designed with children in mind, I immediately took notice. I was excited to find out more about the Loog because I took guitar lessons when I was 8 years old, and it proved to be easier said than done. The guitar was added to the list of instruments that were uncomfortable for my tiny hands (w …

Are your kids looking for easy songs to play on guitar? Get them started with these great suggestions from guitar teacher Willy M.... That first guitar lesson is critical for establishing a love of playing in our students, but most of the time teachers approach the instrument as though we need to prepare the student for the worst. "It will be difficult... You have to put in a lot of practice... Your fingers will hurt, etc." These things only serve to discourage the student and the parent, who …
