Private Blues Guitar Teacher

I offer Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons for electric, acoustic, and bass guitar. I have over 20 years playing and songwriting experience, including live shows, recordings, and tours; I've been lead guitarist for the metal band Locusta since 2006. I've been teaching guitar for 14 years and have had thousands of hours of teaching experience in that time.

Lessons are available on advanced topics such as music theory, songwriting, lead guitar technique, sweep picking, and classical guitar (i.e. Bach/Spanish guitar), as well as non-guitar specific subjects like home and studio recording, ear training, rhythm, and drum programming (no drum experience necessary). Personalized lessons are offered as well as structured 4 to 8 week courses on specific subjects.

I mainly specialize in rock and metal but enjoy listening to and teaching classical, jazz, (old)country, blues, funk, or almost any other kind of music. I play in a death metal band and my favorite guitar players range ...

About Dru

I've been playing guitar since the age of 10; I started with private lessons for 5 years, then in high school I began playing in bands as a guitarist as well as a self-taught drummer. I became a guitar teacher at the age of 18 and have taught full-time for the most part since then. I have writt

Dru has been an awesome teacher. He is well versed in music theory, differnet play styles and an exceptional guitarist himself. it's hard to argue with 20 years of experience and it shows. He keeps me motivated and on top what I need to get better. Without his help and encouragement I wouldn't have learned so much in such a short time. If you're looking for a knowledgable, laid back teacher that will help and guide you to where you want to be, Dru is the teacher you're looking for.
Johnny
I always had a stigma when it came to taking lessons. For about four years, I'd watch YouTube videos and mess around, and thought I had made decent progress. Eventually, I decided to take one lesson to see how things would go. I found Dru through a friend, and didn't know really anything about him prior to reaching out. From the first phone call, Dru made a significant impact on my playing by lending me perspective and a way to look at the guitar that I had not heard before - and that was just during the initial phone call. Dru offered me a discounted lesson to see if it was a good fit, and I've had lessons with Dru nearly every week since - a bit over a year. The leap I've made during the past year plus almost seems unbelievable. I went from knowing parts of songs, no theory knowledge, and a limited repertoire of technique to knowing multiple songs all the way through, delving deep into the theory (which has allowed me to navigate the fret board rather than playing in boxes), and having way more tools in my technique toolbox. I've also been able to begin songwriting with Dru's help and playing with others regularly. Of course, you might be thinking that this sort of progression is possible with any instructor, but I'm not sure if I would have made such significant gains in this time if it weren't for Dru. He is excellent at understanding where you are exactly with your playing, and offering the right advice for what to do to get where you want to be. Just take a lesson with him, and you'll understand what I mean. Dru is a top-notch dude and makes for an excellent teacher.

Whether you're a beginner, an intermediate or advanced, my blues guitar lessons cater to all!

All ages are welcome! We will definitely learn songs, but in order to truly become an amazing musician you must also focus on building strong technique. Taking lessons with me will ensure that you’ll be able to learn songs and parts by ear. No more tabs! Here’s what we’ll focus on:
- building technique
- transcribing songs and solos
- learning theory
- ear training

Scott is awesome! Super knowledgeable in so many instruments, and he works with you to help you learn what you are interested in and establish a strong foundation to be able to grow as a musician. Lessons are always enjoyable, and I appreciate the time and effort he puts in to create tailored, individualized lessons. He has been my teacher for both mandolin and classical guitar. I would highly recommend lessons with Scott!
Jaya
I appreciate Scott's relaxed style. He is able to make a realistic practice schedule for me to fit in to my work week. It is obvious he is very knowledgeable and has given me a lot of good tips so far. I would definitely recommend Scott.
Rush
I took weekly electric guitar lessons with Scott from 2004 to 2012. He is without a doubt an extremely talented, enthusiastic, and compassionate teacher. Whether he was helping me learn basic chords or teaching me complicated songs, Scott never wavered in his dedication to teaching. Over the eight years as his student, Scott gave constructive criticism in a courteous manner. He was on time, inquisitive about the songs and music I was listening to, and ended lesson with new material for me to practice. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to any aspiring guitar student.

I had not played guitar since high school, and was unsure that I would be able to pick it up again because it's been so long, but Andrea helped me get my confidence back.

"Ahmad has opened up the world of music to me. Before I started taking lessons with Ahmad, music was simply something I enjoyed listening to, but was a bit of an abstraction. I had always wanted to learn an instrument, specifically the guitar, but had suffered an injury to my finger when I was a teenager and thought there was little point in trying with a significant handicap. Now at middle age I decided to try anyway.

For two years I've been taking lessons with Ahmad every week or two and have found a lifelong hobby. Ahmad has been patient and understanding to my level of ability and has guided me to not only improve dramatically my level of playing, but also has taught me the basic fundamentals of music which makes me appreciate listening to and playing music more than I ever had. Ahmad is a gifted teacher who can quickly uncover and fix fundamental problems with technique and builds lesson plans to teach one how to play the guitar as a musical instrument.

I am so happy I found Ahmad. He has given me a lifelong passion to improve my playing and a deeper understanding of the music I've loved my entire life. If you've ever thought about learning the guitar, do yourself a favor and see Ahmad now."

"I'm an older self taught player that finally decided to take lessons. I have been working with William for a little over a month now. He began with cleaning up my playing position. This was really big for me as I have had issues that prevented me from playing as long as I would like due to back and hand pain.
William spent the time to figure out where I was and wanted to go. Im very pleased with the progress I'm making and am confident that taking lessons with William was a great choice. He has also been very giving of his time to help pick out instruments and gear to move my instruction along.
I see a lot of instructors here that are players trying to augment their gigging money by giving lessons. Williams education and background really show in his lesson presentation and effectiveness."

A Fun Blues Guitar Exercise to Get You Started

If you're familiar with blues chords and ready to start trying your hand at some riffs, this exercise from guitar teacher Samuel B. will help you get the ball rolling... As an instructor (and blues guitar afficionado), I'm keen on you developing a working knowledge of the blues. The blues is the musicological basis of all recognizable forms of American music (gospel, contemporary country, soul, rhythm & blues, bluegrass, early rock n roll, the list goes on). Therefore, said knowledge will imp …
