Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

An experienced guitar player of 13 years. Especially good with beginners including both very young and older students. It's never too early or late to start playing! Will cater a specific personal lesson plan to your desires to make sure we move at YOUR best pace. We'll build a solid foundation so that you can learn how to teach yourself and continue to grow and love music long after these lessons. We can get you up and running with your favorite tunes or start delving into the musical theory side of things. I make sure that our lessons are fun but also challenging and I make sure we spend some time learning how to build finger strength, how to improvise, and (most importantly) how to play with other musicians!

On to lesson #2. :)

Guitar is my main instrument as a music major in college. I want students to learn at their on pace while motivating them to progress with each lesson.

I was very pleased with my lessons. I learned a lot and Kwame was very patient and helpful. I like the progression of the lessons and feel like at this rate I will be where I want to be vocally in no time at all.
Isabelle
Kwame is a great instructor!! He is knowledgeable about the craft he teaches and is great at explaining things in a comprehensible manner. My daughter is young, and his teaching method provided her with the skills and confidence to learn you how play. She went from not liking to play as much to not being able to stay away from a piano.

Kwame is super nice and easy to work with

I am a new student to the guitar and LeeLee is a great instructor! Her teaching style or technique really made me comfortable and relaxed, even after multiple mistakes I made. She had me playing better in 45 minutes vs 3 hours playing guitar by myself.
Soha
LeeLee is a really wonderful teacher. She’s calm, patient, knowledgeable, and flexible. She is able to offer insights that are allowing me to make much faster progress than I ever have on my own or with any other ukulele teacher, so I’m motivated to continue. With her instruction, I’m finally enjoying playing my instrument, and I see that proficiency is on the horizon. I’d recommend her to anyone.
Lynnetta
I started taking ukulele lessons with LeeLee as an adult. She was very encouraging, professional, and flexible. She focused on the basic musical elements, always explaining concepts. She was willing to explore the types of songs I wanted to learn to play. She made taking lessons again very fun. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

To play off what Chaz said, I'm a recovering trumpet player who initially tried my hand at the guitar about 5 years ago. Corey quickly figured out that my talent and background were better suited to the bass. There's been no turning back. Corey's a great teacher! He's always patient, he makes you work, and you enjoy the process. I'd give him more than 5 stars if I could!!
Ben
Corey is great. Always positive and happy. Great laughs. His system for teaching has gotten me from clumsy beginner to where I have the confidence to play with others and in front of an audience. He teaches relevant information that helps you know how to PLAY.

Lessons with Corey for 15 years and I still suck but it ain’t his fault! Seriously, Corey is a very cool guy and a very capable instructor. Highly recommend him if u want to have fun while you’re learning.

I took lessons with Jeff a few years back, and if it wasn’t for his teaching, I would not be where I am now. He helped me smooth out my technique, taught me jazz essentials, and even dabbled in a little classical guitar as well (and that is what I do now!) His lessons were inspiring to say the least!

"I was looking for advanced guitar lessons and came across Ahmad purely by chance. I wanted to get a better grasp of theory and self study wasn't cutting it, mainly because I wasn't disciplined enough and figured paying someone to teach me would make me study harder.

Ahmad got amazing skill and patience. I would often go in early and listen to him teach students new to guitar and be amazed at how well he was able to get them to understand the concepts behind what they were trying to do. Ahmad certainly helped me out.

A year later, I'm playing better than I had been before. I've got a much stronger grasp of music theory, it's helped me with my song writing and I'm happy with the direction I'm going.

Do go to Ahmad if you're looking to get better and learn quickly. Even the 30 minute classes are very helpful. You won't regret it."

"I was referred to Ahmad by a professional well versed in the music industry. I'm so thankful for the referral because I couldn't have asked for a better teacher! Not only does Ahmad know his instrument inside and out with the ability to articulate his knowledge into teaching, but he also knows about record production, marketing, and much more because she's a successful performing and recording artist himself. Looking forward to years of happy, fruitful guitar playing with help from Ahmad!"

"Ahmad is very passionate about teaching guitar. I've been playing guitar for last 2 year and with Ahmad, I've learnt much more in couple of months than I learnt in 2 years putting me on the Fast track. He has a very structured teaching approach, He breaks down complex techniques in small modules, which enabled me to learn quickly and everything is reviewed in the following class. Ahmad tailored the guitar lessons according to my skills and interests.
He is a great teacher and I highly recommend him for guitar lesson."

"Russel taught me so much about playing the guitar. Every lesson was fun but hard. He always gave me feedback on how I was playing and he also made sure I had something to work on in between the times we would have lessons. I got to choose the songs I wanted to learn and he would teach me. I loved it."

"I am having lessons with Devin almost every week for a while now. We have lessons at his studio and online. Both locations are great.
For me, there are pros to having both location options available depending on my schedule that morning.
His way of teaching is great. I'm an adult and never played a guitar before. And I feel he has an enormous amount of patients. But he is not afraid to introduce something new. If I tell him I'm not clear with something we learned last time he will repeat it. And go it over with me. Technically he really had me playing songs very soon in the lessons. But I'm not necessarily the fastest learner so the most important thing is my responsibility.
Practice Practice Practice.

I recommend Devin to any one that wants to start learning guitar. Or needs to improve.
As I mentioned before, I'm an adult. But I could only imagine he'd do great with children.

Oh, I just reminded my self one more nice thing about Devin the teacher. When I'm with him, or online with him. For some reason he makes me feel like the lessons he provides are created for me. Not just random lessons. he goes according to my pace."
