Guitar instruction customized to the student with regard to:

age,
degree of dedication,
practice time available
skill level,
musical interests.

At the core, each student will master the instrument. All students will learn:

how music works and how to apply it to the guitar.

About Ronald
I am an experienced professional with a background in music performance, education, composition, theory and arranging.

*** Lesson Details ***
Few musicians or music students have identical goals, musical interests or physical size. So, It is NECESSARY to customize the course of study to meet student requirements. There are common issues for any serious pursuit of learning involving the guitar; right and left hand technique, fingerboard knowledge, chord knowledge, reading and interpretation.

However, to progress, it is also necessary for the student to practice daily.

I try to maintain a healthy balance between the focus on performance and technical issues.

It was obvious to me at my first lesson with Ron, that he is an experienced and top quality musician and teacher. I have enjoyed several lessons with him so far. He is patient, makes learning fun, great at conveying the material, and has set a learning pace that feels just right for me.

I've played guitar for a few years and enjoy teaching beginners. I incorporate reading music, reading tab, playing melodies, and playing chords.

About Tina
I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I am a high school music teacher/band director and a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lessons are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

My home studio has chairs, mus
ic stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

One of Catherine's projects during her studies at the Manhattan School of Music was the Symposium Concert Series, which has led her to perform in apartment homes around the city and build a community of young artists.

My goal is to teach you the songs that you want to learn. You absolutely need to learn the fundamentals first.

With rock and metal, this means you need to learn guitar tablature, chords and reading chord charts. I have a set of lesson plans that focus on this.

I teach lead improvisation with blues and rock and country. You can start with the basics and I'll take you every step of the way or we can begin with some advanced lessons if you're ready.

I also teach modern worship songs.

About Mike
I teach fun and easy lessons that allow you to explore the guitar at your own pace. I tailor lessons around the student's musical interest. I'll have you playing your favorite songs in a matter of weeks.

I taught at my last music academy for 9 years. I am currently teaching at Sam Ash Music in Castleton, IN. I've been playing guitar since 1980 and I've taught hundreds of students thousands of songs since 1998. I have taught country, pop, and rock from the 50s to today. I have taught Elvis, The Beatles, Guns and Roses, Nirvana, Metallica and Avenged Seven Fold not to mention hundreds more.

Marc is a patient, and a diligent teacher. He's creative and applies multiple ideas in getting me to "get it" when I'm stuck. I am very pleased with my experience. He's an accomplished musician and I can tell he studies how to make others learn best. He also makes certain to praise my progress and, he's not afraid to shift gears if my playing interest is getting stale.

I came into this with NO experience. A complete novice AND, a left handed novice at that! After 8 lessons now, I've progressed really well and I'm satisfied with the outcomes so far. I'm on my way!

And, I highly recommend Marc!

Lessons with Marc have been a blast. I have never taken guitar lessons before. Marc's encouragement and enthusiasm immediately put me at ease and got me excited to be playing. He really went out of way to find out what I was interested in learning and gave me suggestions of new music to listen to based on what I want to learn. He does an excellent job breaking musical concepts down to make learning easier. It is clear he cares a lot about teaching and his passion for music is contagious. I highly recommend taking lessons from Marc!

Marc is great teacher! He is positive, customizes the lessons to what I am interested in, delivers feedback really well, and has helped me learn new skills and techniques. I definitely feel like I am improving a lot after each lesson and becoming a more polished player. He also sends great notes after the lesson with reminders or suggestions, which I really appreciate.
