Private Guitar Teacher

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!

Good teacher.
Jonathan M.
I'm three lessons deep into the ukulele and I'm really satisfied with Ryan. We've met once in person and twice online; I've had some health issues and he has been really accomodating switching this up for me. He's easy going and takes his time expaining history, theory, and taking it step by step while remaining encouraging and giving honest feedback. He wastes no time and you really get the most out of your lesson. I look forward to continuing on with Ryan. As a teacher and performer myself, I appreciate that he gets down to the business of doing the work but is just very nice as well!

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.

Online Guitar Teacher

Pro musician/recording artist, over 15 years teaching experience. I MAKE LEARNING TO PLAY FUN. I call my teaching style "50-50" Because 50% percent is what you want and 50% is what you need. You'll learn by working towards your goals using music that you enjoy (Rock/Blues/Country/Jazz/etc)

About Nairobi

My goal is to make you shine. All lessons are individually designed specifally for you. Also, I know HOW to teach effectively. Establishing trust and communication is key. All lessons are customized to your musical tastes and particular style of learning. There are many talented professional musici

It was the best! I didn't know what to expect because I've never played before. Nairobi was patient, professional and thorough. He was reassuring and his instructions were easy to follow. No longer nervous, I feel like I've achieved a major goal in learning to play. 5 STARS!
Conrad
Vast experience and knowledge.
Patient approach to teaching.
Don
Nairobi has been a great instructor. He does not use the "one size fits all approach", but rather will customize the instruction to what you want. Accordingly, students will remain interested and get more out of it when the curriculum is of interest to them. I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but wasn't interested in learning to read music. Nairobi also let's you choose what type and what specific songs you'd like to learn. Learning to play your favorite rock, pop or blues song versus Mary Had a Little Lamb- guess which one keeps you more motivated and interested in learning how to play? Also, being able to have the lesson in the privacy of your own home is great. He makes learning to play the guitar fun. If you put the work in you'll be playing in no time.

If you're looking to quickly learn the basics of guitar, I can help you with that. We begin by learning open chords, then move on to bar chords, and strumming patterns. Again, my lessons cater to each individual student's goals and taste in music.

"I started taking guitar lessons for the first time 10 months ago and am thankful I found such a great teacher in Ahmad. His positive attitude and love of music helps me stay engaged and lessons are productive and fun.

One of the great things about Ahmad is he listens to you and adjusts lesson content based on the feedback you provide. His ability to listen allows Ahmad to deliver a personalized lesson plan that incorporates your goals and gets you excited about what you are working on.

Ahmad also has taught me techniques to prevent and address minor aches that come up while learning to play. He takes this seriously and shows you how to prevent and resolve any issues that come up.

Overall, taking lessons from Ahmad has been a very positive experience. I look forward to continuing working with him to get better."

"Athena is a great teacher. She really knows how to respond to individual needs and skill level of the student. In just a few lessons, she has already cleared a lot of obstacles for me, like addressing why was having pain in my hands and helping to correct that. Now I cannot wait every day to practice the guitar and I'm playing a song I've always wanted to play and it sounds recognizable after only three days. With more work on my part, I am sure that it will get better, and I know that Athena will keep giving me guidance that I can understand. And, she's fun!"
