Private Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching guitar for over 18 years and have taught hundreds of satisfied students. When you sign up for guitar lessons, you will begin by learning the basics of the instrument including proper holding and playing position, tone production, rhythm, first position notes,basic chords and notation. Once you get the basics down, you will learn how to play your favorite songs regardless of style. All of this can happen within the first 4-6 months of playing.

About Dave

Dave K. began playing guitar at the age of 10. His influences include Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Guthrie Govan, Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Pat Martino, Pat Metheny and Scott Henderson. At the age of 17 he began teaching private guitar and bass lessons to classmates

I haven't played the violin since I was in middle school, and I wanted to re-learn to play it. I am so glad I picked Dave, he is very professional and made me feel very comfortable. I jumped in with both feet and Dave made the instructions at our first lesson easy for me to understand. Excellent location and studio is awesome.
Rushia Hendricks
Excellent lesson. Does a wonderful job at taking older students and gently holding their feet to the fire to bring out the best- even under the most challenging of circumstances. Kudos to being such a uniquely great teacher!
Tom L.
I realize it was the first lesson but I was a little disappointed that we spend nearly the entire time on housekeeping items, like canceling and re-scheduling appointments. I think that could have been covered with an e-mail or handout. I also thought we spent too much time going over the differences between acoustic and electric guitars - considering my age and background. Would have liked to see him demonstrate what I was asked to practice before the next lesson instead of just being told to refer to the workbook.

As far as general guitar technique am able to teach to a advanced level except for heavy metal electric and jazz styles. For any kind of fingerpicking can teach to a advanced level.

I've been teaching music for five years. Within the first few lessons, your technique on the guitar will vastly improve and you'll learn how to hold a pick, sit with the guitar, and maintain correct left-hand posture. Once you have the basics down, you'll be able to start playing whatever style of music you want. I teach all ages, experience levels, and musical styles and I can't wait to meet you!

Bennett's a great teacher! My seven-year-old son has been taking piano lessons with him for a year, and right now they're working on Fur Elise, one of my favorite songs. My son loves his lessons and looks forward to them every week.
John
I met Bennett when he was the musical director for two musicals that my daughter was in. I was totally blown away by his piano skills and my child really enjoyed him, so we started taking lessons with him. He's been an amazing teacher over the last couple years and my child has developed a passion for music. He's an incredibly nice guy, very relatable, down-to-earth, and very passionate about what he does.
David
I've been taking lessons with Bennett for over a year now. He's a great teacher and musician - after a few months I was playing Free Bird! Can't recommend him enough!

"One of the problems with musicians these days is a lack of formal training. Cris has spent the last 20+ years perfecting his abilities to teach music. In my opinion, Part of what makes Cris stand out from other instructors is his knowledge and open minded view of different styles of music. A teacher with a diverse musical background is ideal for a student who wants to create a good basis or reach the next level in their abilities. Cris is able to help you learn guitar the right way and set a path that will advance your abilities quicker than most other teachers."

"I started taking lessons as a complete beginner (a couple months of self teaching) and since then I've surprised myself with what I can now do with an electric guitar. Eric's home studio is a comfortable learning space where together we've worked to achieve my goals on guitar and also the bases for guitar (scales, modes, keys, progressions, voicing, etc.). I highly recommend Eric, he will work with you to get you where you want to be as a musician"

Guitarists, are you ready to hit the stage at a local open mic? Polish your performance with these tips from guitar teacher Samuel B.... Performing (like songwriting) is a craft at which any dedicated musician can excel. It requires no prerequisites – only the desire to share your talent and creations.
