I'm into recording and composition using simple apps - students will immediately learn fun sources for loops and ways to level themselves up by learning exercises and how they relate to their own recorded creations. By taking useful tools and making them available round the clock on a phone as well as handwritten notes during a class, students will explore midi, home recording skills, and flexibly learn a vast spread of cool handheld functions.

About Spencer

I'm so excited to get into music with the amazing spread of people out here! It's fairly daunting to take up a new skill, so I'd like to say that we're going to find a path that keeps interest and skill levels up. You are not required to suffer. Using several fun (and, importantly, very free) apps

I have been teaching guitar for 18 years and have taught hundreds of satisfied students. When you sign up for acoustic guitar lessons with me, you will begin by learning the basics of the instrument including proper holding and playing position, tone production, rhythm, first position notes,basic chords and notation. Once you get the basics down, you will learn how to play your favorite guitar riffs and songs. All of this can happen within the first 4-6 months of playing.

About Dave

Dave K. began playing guitar at the age of 10. His influences include Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Guthrie Govan, Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Pat Martino, Pat Metheny and Scott Henderson. At the age of 17 he began teaching private guitar and bass lessons to classmates

I haven't played the violin since I was in middle school, and I wanted to re-learn to play it. I am so glad I picked Dave, he is very professional and made me feel very comfortable. I jumped in with both feet and Dave made the instructions at our first lesson easy for me to understand. Excellent location and studio is awesome.
Rushia Hendricks
Excellent lesson. Does a wonderful job at taking older students and gently holding their feet to the fire to bring out the best- even under the most challenging of circumstances. Kudos to being such a uniquely great teacher!
Tom L.
I realize it was the first lesson but I was a little disappointed that we spend nearly the entire time on housekeeping items, like canceling and re-scheduling appointments. I think that could have been covered with an e-mail or handout. I also thought we spent too much time going over the differences between acoustic and electric guitars - considering my age and background. Would have liked to see him demonstrate what I was asked to practice before the next lesson instead of just being told to refer to the workbook.

I've been teaching guitar for 5 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. There are many styles I'm comfortable teaching from folk (fingerpicking or flatpicking), rock, blues and funk and I would love working on developing a unique style of your own. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of strumming, picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

About Ryan

Ryan is a musician from Jefferson Park who plays a plethora of different instruments. He specializes in guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele, but also dabbles in accordion, piano, drums, harmonica and several others. Learning to play instruments is one of the true pleasures in his life and he hopes

I spend a lot of time gearing my lessons to each specific student. Obviously we will learn songs that you are interested in. But in addition to that I write out specific exercises to help my students learn while also making it something that is fun and interesting to play so that we are not tied solely to learning from a book when it is not necessary. I can also help with songwriting, improvisation and other creative pursuits. The genres I am well versed in are pop, rock, classical, jazz, blues, funk, etc.

About Yusuf

I've been playing guitar since I was about 10 years old. I have always had a passion for learning as well as performing music and I continue both of those practices to this day. I am a strong believer in gearing each lesson plan to a students individual interest and will write out individual exerci

As a recent graduate from Southeastern Louisiana University, I have been teaching guitar and ukulele lessons as well as classes since the spring of 2017. I hold a bachelor's degree in music performance with my primary instrument being the guitar.
I can also help you to acquire a solid foundation of music theory knowledge. You can better understand music theory concepts if they are paired with guitar techniques to supplement them.
If you are a complete beginner, do not be afraid! I will help you to learn at a pace which is comfortable but still effective for you. These lessons will be focused and designed to fit YOUR needs. Let's learn together :)

Hi, I'm Dwayne and I teach students of all ages and skill levels. What makes my lessons unique is that I create customized lesson plans that cater to your interests and desire to want to learn.

I have been teaching private guitar lessons throughout Colorado for over a decade and have brought my special training skills and methodology to many, many students within that time. I am an accomplished musician who teaches in the studio on Saturdays and provides in-student home lessons during the week. I am also a published author of many guitar instruction books that I am currently selling on Amazon & eBay.

I have a very unique and exciting approach that quickly gets students of all ages having fun playing guitar. I am left-handed (which makes learning from me easier) and my enthusiasm and love for teaching shine through with every lesson I prepare.

So whether you prefer to play for fun or professionally, acoustic or electric, are a beginner, intermediate or advanced ...

"Ahmad helped me crack the code and I'm learning and playing guitar with growing confidence.
The lessons are challenging and fun and I'm inspired to practice on my own.

Ahmad's talent and experience as a guitarist, guitar teacher and performer come through in small things such as making sure your metronome is loud enough and with more important items like performance preparation strategies such as playing in front of a neighbor or co-worker.

I only wish I had started lessons sooner!"

"My 7-year-old daughter started guitar lessons in March 2014 with Calvin as a beginner. He immediately engaged her by finding out her favorite songs and using those songs as very effective teaching tools, with such patience and enthusiasm. She has been learning to read music and play, and she's come so far already due to his incredible talent and his way of being able to break things down to teach them in a way that really reaches her! He's also very reliable, always on time. I couldn't be happier with Calvin's teaching, and I highly recommend him!"

"Jimmy has a very in-depth approach to teach music, starting from the fundamentals and building on top of them. I've been studying acoustic guitar and mainly music theory with Jimmy for the past 3 months with no prior music knowledge, and I believe I already learned a huge amount about music.

I prefer taking the 1 hour lessons each week, since it provides enough time to think about the material being taught and to ask meaningful questions. I believe Jimmy's objective is to get the student to think about music critically, not just to memorize information.

I fully enjoy the lessons and think they are worth the effort and time!"

This guy will never take advantage of you, and is always understanding when I've had stuff come up. He really treats everyone with over-the-top kindness and never equivocates on that principle. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"

"As a young female, I was apprehensive about choosing a male teacher that teaches in his home. However, Paul has been professional and I have not had any concerns since meeting him and working with him. He is a well-planned, experienced teacher who artfully progresses students from week to week in a manner that is constructive and fun. In only 5 weeks I have learned more about playing guitar and guitar theory than I would have thought. He has been attentive to my goals and it is precisely the experience that I pay for."
