Private Bluegrass Guitar Teacher

I am a Brazilian guitar player who started by playing blues and rock on the electric guitar, and then moved into Samba, Bossa Nova and fingerstyle on the nylon-string guitar. Today, I play mostly Latin styles and a little bit of Flamenco. I also have a year of conservatory training under my belt, as well as a background in West African percussion, and culminate all of these styles together as a composer.

As a teacher, I cater to your aptitude and your goals and make sure that you are having fun while you grow. That means learning actual repertoire of music that you want to study. Some students want more music theory than others: and that's totally fine! But I like to always have a song as a context to study that theory. Afterall, we want to use theory to actually make music!

About Thomas

My name is Tomas. I am a Brazilian-American polyglot musician and language instructor. I play music and teach English/Portuguese for a living, and have been doing so for the past 7 years! I also learned Spanish and French through music, so I know a lot about those languages and the styles of music

I like to craft a lesson plan that revolves around the interest of the student. If you like country but not funk, we'll focus heavy on country and not do any funk. If you want to focus on theory, we will. If you don't want to learn "hot crossed buns" we won't. Let me know the music you like and what you want to accomplish and we can go from there!

About Ryan

Hello! My name is Ryan and I play guitar/sing/write/record with local alternative rock/jam band, Lunar Ticks. I also am a guitarist with the all improvised cover band, Fate Nite. I also book shows, produce a comedy show, started a podcast, write for a local music publication, have spoken at schools

Kind, helpful, and attentive - I enjoyed getting to know Ryan very much and despite the fact that first lessons can be a challenge, I feel as though it was time well spent. I look forward to more!

Great first day!
Jim
I recently started taking lessons with Kenny to try to learn some basic lead guitar in a one on one setting. I've been very impressed with his preparation, taking the time to tailor the lesson to my level of play and the music I am interested in playing. He also is very encouraging and is interested in my learning and progress, even going beyond the one hour lesson time to ensure that I have the tools necessary to continue to work at home.

Great 1 st lesson. He was patient and supportive with the kids!

Jon is AWESOME! His patient yet enthusiastic demeanor made my 9yr old look forward to her lessons, and really enjoy learning! I plan to continue with him as long as her interest holds!!!!
Natalie
We love what Jon has taught our son. Our son has progressed so much in the past couple of years, and still enjoys meeting with his teacher despite him being a teenager. When you find a good teacher, you do all you can to stay with them.
J.G. M.
At 52 years old, my wife treated to lessons for Christmas. I haven't played in 30 years. Although, I have had a few lessons with several different instructors back in my 20's, I never felt any direction. I always heard 'you got it. just keep playing'. Unfortunately, I stopped as nothing made sense.
I have learned a ton from Jon in only 5 lessons. Bits and pieces are all quickly coming together. I have a long way to go, but know more already than I ever have. Jon is fun, friendly, and has a great demeanor for teaching. If he has the patience to teach me, he's the right guy for you.

I believe that learning music should be as fun and inspiring as it can be to play. We all have a vast wellspring of creative energy within us, and the goal of the relationship between the student and the teacher is to help nurture and develop that latent talent. For this reason, my approach to teaching music is highly individualized. I start out with the premise that the student has unique gifts and my job is to help them discover what those are, and develop and refine them in order to make beautiful and deeply satisfying music, through whatever instrument and in whatever style they are drawn towards.

Depending on one's starting level of experience, some basic exercises will be assigned to develop core skills, with increasing levels of technical challenge and complexity. Elements of music theory will be woven into practical lessons. Students will have the choice to incorporate material from popular and familiar music into their studies, and as they progress they will be encouraged to

I've been getting guitar lessons with Sean for sometime after some singing lessons with him. He's a great teacher, very patient, flexible, always pushing me to experiment more and adapting to my needs as a student. I've also learned so much about music theory and different approaches to song writing thanks to his input.
Cole
I Googled "guitar teacher, Roseburg, OR" and low and behold, Sean showed up and boy I'm glad he did!!! Sean and I hit it off instantly and the things I wanted to get better at (finger picking, hammer(s) on and off, picking the notes within chords, etc.) Sean was completely versed in! Long story short... I couldn't be happier with Sean as a teacher and as a person he's totally cool as well! I recommend Sean unequivocally and if you want to start to play guitar or even get better as I do, Sean is your guy, no doubt about it!!!
