Acoustic Guitar:
Acoustic guitar is such a great instrument for so many reasons. With my method, not only will the student learn the songs and styles they love, but they will become musicians while doing it.
So many guitarists feel limited, because they never learned the basics of notes, chords, technique, and theory. I will unlock the fingerboard and make learning music fun! Student will bring in songs they like to learn.

About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

As a student myself I know that everyone has different learning styles. I intend to work with my students to discover their preferred method of learning, and tailor my teaching to it. We will work together to develop your skill in the fields of musicianship, theory, reading sheet music, improvising solos or playing rhythm guitar. Its my goal to create well rounded musicians and have fun doing it.

About Emma

I grew up in a family that valued the arts and pursued it in every medium they could get their hands on. My house as a child was filled with music all the time. I have minor experience playing many instruments such as piano and clarinet. But I especially took to the guitar. I started playing when I

I had virtually no musical ability or experience prior to my online lessons with Lela, however she has brought the joy out of finding a new musical part of my life. While I am no Carlos Santana, I'm enjoying slowly improving with Lela's guidance and look forward to daily practice.

Lela is an excellent piano teacher. She has so much patience with my daughter who is autistic and very active. I’m so glad I made the right choice picking the right teacher for my daughter. Thank you Lela for being so kind.

She is really nice and a great instructor, especially for beginning guitarists. She is patient and encouraging, and tailors your class to your interests.
Christine Hargrave
Lee is a great instructor! She lets me choose the kind of music I want to play but also provides structure and great guidance. Taking lessons online has been easy and it makes no difference that Lee and I are on opposite sides of the country. I highly recommend Lee!
John Bowman
Lee is an excellent music teacher. She has helped me get past my utter lack of confidence in my musical ability. After a year of guitar lessons with her patience and guidance I'm having fun and have gained the confidence to progress much further. I take both online and home lessons from her. I highly recommend her at all levels.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hello guitarists! My name is Michael O'Hara and I am so excited to teach you the guitar. I'm 33, and I've been playing the guitar, studying and making music for over 18 years. I studied jazz/fusion guitar at Berklee College of Music and have played with more people in more situations than I now remember.

I love working with students at all ability levels. My passion is bringing out the artistry in my students and teaching them that music can be something that feeds your soul for the rest of your life. Any level of player can do this and I am excited to help you put your voice into your playing!

About Michael

Are you brand new to the guitar? Are you an experienced musician looking to learn more music theory or develop your technique? I can help with that. Whatever your ability level, I can help you develop your skills. There are as many ways to approach learning music as there are musicians, and you are

Callie
I was recommended to Mike by my friend Tony. Mike is structured, focused, and encouraging. I was having a tough time with learning some basics and Mike helped me improve everything from proper posture, to volume control and generally helped me improve on just about everything. Looking forward to more lessons and definitely recommend Mike to anyone looking for a great teacher.
Austin
Mike is not only a world class musician and highly effective teacher, he is also an outstanding mentor and has become a close friend. I was having a great deal of difficulty moving past the beginner stage; Mike helped me blast through to a place where I am now comfortable playing in small settings in front of friends and family. I’d recommend Mike to both adults like me looking to tune up their skills, and to parents looking for a teacher for their kids. Especially if they want someone who can get Timmy shredding those frets, but is also a good role model. Mike is a former marine and generally good dude. He’ll be teaching my kids someday.
Chantel
Mike came recommended through a friend and it's been an incredible experience so far! He's super friendly through his professionalism and was immediately able to assess my past musical experience and learning style- something that I've always taken note of and appreciated. Would absolutely refer to any level of ability/experience.

"Why would anyone defame such a wonderful teacher? He is so dedicated and follows through with his lessons by consistently sending links all through the week that helps with understanding all you need to know about musical sounds. Its been an intriguing experience for me. Pay no attention to anonymous critics; they choose to remain anonymous not to help you, but to help themselves. I would recommend James to anyone seriously interested in honing their skills in the acoustic guitar. Cheers!"
