Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have been playing guitar for 15 years. I make lesson plans based on each individual, so I don't teach every one the same boring songs or use the same regiment with everyone. I want to teach you what YOU want to learn.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time. I currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie O'Brie

She asked me what I wanted to learn and assisted me in a very patient way, and showed me the correct way of strumming and whatever else that was needed. A very good start.
Alyson
Felicia is a great teacher! We work well together, she asks how I want to learn and she helps me to understand what I’m learning! As an adult learner, it helps that she can modify my lesson to suit my specific needs. I think this will be a great partnership!!
Autumn
Felicia has truly helped me improve on the viola. From spotting my wrong bow hold to making sure that I am absolutely positive on where the fingerings are for the key, she has most definetly improved my playing over all and is helping me advance past most of my peers in my school orchestra.

My lessons are designed to get my students playing songs and building technique as soon as possible. Because, that’s fun!
I’ve been playing professionally for over 35 years and teaching for over 25 years. I’ve been fortunate to play in several high-profile signed bands (Over the Rhine, Monk and Pay the Girl) and toured all over the world and played on lots of recordings. Fun!
As a teacher, I’ve founds many ways to explain and share this wonderful world of music; because not everyone learns the same way.

Mike is an amazing guitar teacher. We started out having face to face lessons but then Covid-19 made that impossible. We started online lessons and the way Mike teaches online is the same way he does face to face. My son has learned so much and is playing better every day. Mike is vigilant when teaching and is able to show and correct hand movement, eye movement and posture when playing the guitar. I highly recommend Mike Georgin for online guitar lessons for anyone who is wanting to learn the guitar!
Malina
Mike has been the perfect teacher for my 11 year old daughter as she is learning to play bass! He has concentrated on proper technique, reading music, hearing the music, and nuances of what to expect when she gets a “gig” one of these days. He does an excellent job of building on basics and sprinkling in the fun songs so she can also play along with a couple songs she hears on the radio to keep her inspired to learn. I have been amazed with Mike’s ability to relate to someone brand new to the instrument while it is obvious that he, himself, has a very in-depth formally trained skillset himself and knowledge base. I would highly recommend Mike to both new and advanced players alike, for this very reason!
Jim
Mike Georgin is an outstanding instructor. He truly has a gift for teaching. I never stopped being amazed at the depth of his knowledge and professional musical capabilities. His music education plus years of on-stage and recording experience come together in each and every lesson. Mike is very patient, understanding, and works to be sure the lesson concepts are mastered without any pressure. If you just want to play some bass, Mike's your guy! If you want to play bass and learn music theory, Mike's your guy! Mike has the knowledge and experience to go as deep as you, the student, wish to go. I promise you will not regret having Mike as your instructor! He is awesome!

Easy to talk to and understand. Gave specific tips and practice instructions. I'm looking forward to next lesson.
Joseph
Ive had several instructors in the past for very short amounts of time. Never finding one I truly felt was a good fit for me. Andrew is the first instructor that I feel truly listens to what I wanted to learn and the songs that inspire me. He doesn't come off dogmatic. Instead, while still focusing on basic principles that are essential for a beginner like myself, his approach is fresh, fun and modern. Eliminating the intimidating blocks that can come with learning a new instrument. What blew me away the most was that we are doing our lessons online. And their is no hindrance what can be achieved in the lesson through this format . I would say its been even better for me as I can go back and look at what we've worked on throughout the week. A tool that has been truly essential. We've only had two lessons and I'm already playing along to a Tom Petty song. I look forward to what's next. Hands down best Teacher I've ever had. Highly recommend.

Andrew is very patient and took the time to listen/understand my interests and playing level before designing his lesson for me. Off to a great start!

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for about 3 years now and couldn't be happier. I remember being amazed at how quickly I progressed early on, which instantly got me hooked. He focuses hard on your guitar foundation as well a your music theory foundation, not just on how to play a few songs. Since Jimmy has his own studio, you have the capability to record your own songs as much as you would like. The studio also provides a new way of learning that no where else offers by going through your own recordings step by step to pinpoint problem areas. I look forward to going to Jimmy's every week. He is a funny, kind and easy to talk to guy with a passion for what he does.

She suffers from anxiety and he has tailored his approach to showcase her talents and give constructive feedback to help her improve. Greg is really good at getting a feel for what his students need so that he can give them individualized instruction that moves at a pace that they are comfortable with. I always stay to watch her lessons and I can honestly say that I’ve learned a great deal just from observation and it’s been fun for me to see her learning new things and having the confidence to play for others."
