As your instructor, my primary focus will be on getting to know you as a player, student and person. Everybody learns differently and has their own interests when it comes to music. I want to help make you the most well-rounded musician you can be, even if your focus is strictly one genre. Over my 6 years of professional teaching experience I have developed an effective, simple set of eloquent tools that can be applied to all styles. I'm familiar with many techniques (fingers or pick) and am enthusiastic to learn any new ones I come across through teaching. Do you want to learn a new technique, understand the fretboard more, or learn how to play music by ear? All these things and much more will be possible with me as your instructor.

About Rhys

I graduated with my Bachelors of Music from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington in 2015. Since then, I have been teaching private instruction, composing and performing professionally in bands or solo as my career. I've done many different gigs as a bassist, guitarist, vocalist and pi

My first job with a new student is to understand what they are looking for in guitar lessons. Do you want to be able to strum songs that you like? Do you want to play lead guitar in a rock band? Do you want to play along with backing tracks or songs? Do you want to learn music theory? Do you want to enrich your life with playing music? Do you want to write your own songs? I start by understanding what you want to

We got to know Dipankar through TakeLessons. He uses a digital chess board on the screen to play and teach chess. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is very prompt. He adjusts the lessons according to the learning speed of our son. Overall, very pleased with the lessons."

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …
