Private Guitar Teacher

Have you ever wanted to play an instrument or sing? Do you have a genuine passion for music? My lessons properly prepare students for what is needed to execute their journey as a musician. Lessons will be customized to meet the needs of the students. I have five years of teaching students from ages five to fifty and over twenty years of experience as a musician. Students will learn core music essentials such as music theory, ear training, sight reading, and more. And for songwriters I offer lessons on songwriting and structuring.

This was my son's first piano lesson so we didn't know what to expect. Kwame was great with my son. He was both patient and encouraging, knowledgeable and professional. My son is excited for his next lesson!

Guitar students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are a part of basic music vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Chords are also basic vocabulary of the musical language.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the students' goals. However, I strongly encourage everyone learn to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. The student chooses what songs they want to play, guided by my suggestions; Jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, R &B - "How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"

A beginning student will practice all

I like to use Fast Track by Hal Leonard Book 1 it is an easy book to learn from. You learn your notes on all 6. Why because it is important to read music just as it is to play the guitar. Learn your favorite songs. Learn strumming patterns. Strumming is hard so it takes a bit. And yes your FINGERS will be sore for a while but you will survive!!!!

I am currently only accepting students interested in specializing in classical guitar.

_____________________________________________
Over the course of many years, I have taught various styles of guitar to many different types of people. Whether you're interested in learning to play a specific song, or if you've just always wanted to play guitar but weren't sure where to start, I will join you in your journey and help you discover the tools that you need to reach the level that you want.
I help my students figure out and understand how the instrument and their own hands work, so that they are able to get full control of the guitar and play in various styles with ease. I work to make sure as many doors as possible are open to my students, and I leave it up to them to decide which doors they want to walk through.

About Kirk

I have been studying music for most of my life and began teaching when I was 16. I have been given the opportunity to learn from some of the best musicians and teachers around. Before relocating to Denver, I regularly gave performances throughout the Cincinnati area, as well as in surrounding state

I haven't learned how to play an instrument in 30 years and her expert instruction as well as her ability to make me feel at ease about missteps and applauding my successes has made the experience a real pleasure. I can also see that I am making progress. I highly recommend her."

"I can say without any reservation that Raymond is the complete package in a teacher! Raymond brings a sense of joy to learning guitar that makes me look forward to lessons, which I always leave in a better mood than when I started. He is probably the most insightful instructor that I have ever had the pleasure to work with--in music or any other field. He understands my strengths and weaknesses and tailors his teaching to my needs and my background. While I have a fair amount of musical experience, my struggles with stress and lack of confidence could have easily led me to quit taking lessons some time ago. But Raymond has a way of instilling confidence and making learning and practicing so fun that I just can't stop playing (and I started lessons in 2012)! Hearing him play with such grace and beauty, even the simple pieces that I am attempting, provides that much more motivation. And you'll never meet a warmer and more genuine person!"
