Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I have been playing guitar for over a decade and have tons of performance experience gigging in a local rock band. Combine that with a curriculum that starts with fundamentals and expands quickly into playing your favorite songs and you have a great start to beginning or expanding your guitar playing abilities.

About ryan

Hi, my name is Ryan and I would love to teach you how to play guitar. I've been playing for over 10 years and have been gigging for a little less than that in my band. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience performing on stage and teaching to people of all ages. If you want to shred, jam,

Learned a lot today! Very friendly and helped me improve the quality of existing recordings I made with gain staging and additional compression techniques

Very helpful and provided a lot of useful tips on difficult subject matter
Mark Herr
Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!

I think Tim is doing a great job with our kids to keep them interested in their lessons. This is their first musical lesson of any kind for them and so far Tim has the right mix of lessons and fun. I know that Tim wants them to practice between lessons so it will be important for him to give us instructions on exactly what they should be practicing so we can ensure its completed.

Good Experience

Our experience with Timothy P. has been very good. My 6 year old son started lessons with Timothy ten weeks ago and I'm amazed at what my son has learned in that short amount of time. And when my son decided he had a mind of his own about what he wanted to learn, Timothy was happy to adapt to that.

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching guitar for more than 15 years.
Every student is unique. We all have different ways of learning and retaining information: by rote, from a printed score, by ear, etc... Each student is interviewed and consulted to gain an understanding of how they learn most effectively and to create customized private lessons on the guitar.
For classical guitar, there again are strict technical guidelines to achieve a beautiful tone and effective movement. To supplement my private instruction, I use different method of books and others for technical training and basic music theory as they relate to the guitar.

About Kelvin

I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis. I am very comfortable with all aspects

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

Hello! My name is Max Fletcher - I have been playing and teaching guitar for over 15 years. I recently graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music, where I studied Guitar Performance with Maestros Eliot Fisk and Joe Morris, and Composition with Stratis Minakakis. When teaching, I have always tried to provide a multi-faceted and multi-dimensional experience that encourages learning to take place on many levels simultaneously. Music making is a process that involves many technical, theoretical, practical, and even historical elements, and is not a linear progression but often more circular in nature. In my own practice I have always tried to let the music guide and inform me, and consequently the most important element of my teaching is the experience of the music itself.

About Max

I began with the electric guitar at age 10 playing jazz, blues, and metal before becoming interested in classical guitar when I was 14. I have performed internationally in numerous masterclasses for esteemed guitarists such as Leo Brouwer, Eduardo Fernandez, David Tanenbaum, Jorge Caballero, Zaira
