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,

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 have been teaching guitar professionally for over 4 years in the Atlanta area. As a recent graduate of Kennesaw State University with a degree in Jazz Guitar Performance, I have developed a deep love for music and the guitar which I thoroughly enjoy sharing with my students. I currently teach and perform, traveling across the United States with various groups performing a multitude of genres, all of which I love teaching and sharing with eager students! I was not a "natural" guitarist, so I have a great method for making guitar/music make sense so that all of my students can be successful. I look forward to working with you!

About Patrick

I am a professional guitarist, composer, and educator living in the Greater Atlanta Area. I started playing guitar while in high school at Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School. I owe a lot of my success to my time spent here as this school is consistently ranked one of the top schools in the nation. I

I have been teaching Classical guitar for 50 years. I've played classical guitar in theater productions and for weddings and formal dinners. I teach from the great progressive Suzuki method and then beyond to the great classical pieces from the renisaunce on through to the contemporary. Along with the pieces, we study scales and chord theory. For those who love the classical music, this is a fun energy packed study that moves at the peak of your pace. You will love it.

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

I'm looking for students who are interested in learning classical/Spanish guitar and developing in them the same passion I have for the guitar and music. I studied guitar at Univ. of Texas and have been playing and teaching professionally for over 40 years. My goal in teaching beginners is to help you find your own style and to insure that you are familiar with the fundamentals of technique and theory.

For the more advanced student I'm looking for dedicated students who are interested in honing their skills and working on whatever particular piece of music they might be interested in learning and performing.

About Michael

I have over 30 years experience teaching, performing and recording classical and Spanish guitar. I offer my students a systematic approach for gradual musical and technical development toward mastery of the guitar. Every student brings their own unique personality, natural ability and desire to lea

"Mark played for my wedding, and I was incredibly impressed. I had certain musical portions of my wedding pre-arranged, but those plans ended up falling apart. Mark was able to pick up and play beautiful music right when I needed him to. His flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile helped make my wedding as successful as it was! He really saved the day, and I'm so thankful he was there! If I couldn't have him at other future events, I would be happy to take any of his students because I know they would have learned from one of the best."

"I worked with Natone for over a year at Taylor guitars. Every single day, as i was entering the property, I could hear Natone playing amazing pieces of music. Classical, Blues, or inspired pieces he just made up right then and there. He plays all his music with such a passion and focus that only an experience and well practiced hand could do while still being one of the humblest guys I have ever met. I started taking classical lessons from Natone a while back and at every lessson i learned something new that was vital to my growth and understanding as a guitar player, such as finger picking patterns, music theory, and songs that put his teachings into practice. He taught me how to play Bouree in E minor by Bach and Francisco Tarrega's Arabe Capricho. Natone is one the best and it was an honor and a privilige to have learned from him. Natone, wherever you are, good luck and good hunting."

"OK, so here's the scoop. Ahmad is the best guitar teacher around, and I know because I had a deep background in piano and music theory, playing pretty much any sheet music you put in front of me. I took LAST summer 4 lessons with some guy and I got nowhere, fast. Then this August I started with a 5-pack from Ahmad, just to get started, and within 5 lessons I was already learning how to play REAL songs but with the foundations and skills (all those scales-drills) that you need to actually UNDERSTAND the guitar and see how it all comes together. Ahmad is an amazing teacher, his teaching space is great, and he's just a great guy. He will help ANY person start playing real guitar in a short time, and now I'm working with him for a long time trying to really become a PROFICIENT guitar player that can entertain people. If you're thinking about guitar lessons, get them from Ahmad. Totally affordable, and totally a good use of your time."

"Classical Guitar

When I started taking lessons from Ray I was playing the electric guitar, although I had a classical guitar in my house I did not play it that often. I took my classical guitar once to class and then I started to learn how to play the classical guitar. I went from playing basic peaces of music to playing Minuet in G in a short time. From playing electric guitar about 3 or 4 years to playing classical music in about 1.5 to 2 years. Ray has helped me to increase my knowledge of music."

"We couldn't be happier with Michael. His passion and expertise are what you'd want from a teacher (clarinet + guitar), but beyond this, he's a kind, patient man who really took the effort to reach my son outside of just the lesson. This made a huge difference when it comes to keeping my son engaged.

Considering lessons? Go with Michael."

Learning Classical Guitar: Can I Use Tabs or Should I Read Music?

Whether you're brand new to guitar, or just new to classical guitar, you might be wondering, "what's the deal with tabs and sheet music?" Let guitar teacher Raymond L. clear up the fog and put you on the right path to classical guitar success... To get started, let's be sure to clearly distinguish standard musical notation from what we call nowadays "tab" notation. What is Tab? The name tab, or guitar tab, is derived from tablature, a form of musical notation indicating fingering an …
