About Carrie
*****I don't have a current background check through take lessons but have an active ongoing background check through another employer ******

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 10 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn
a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about perfect theory and note placement it's about enjoyment. That's why I tailor make every lesson specifically based on my student's goals. I have students that like a more traditional approach so I use standard method books with them. I also have students that want to learn how to play by ear so we use a less traditional method and I teach them chord structures and how to move around easily on their instrument. My favorite thing to teach is vocal lessons but I love teaching piano and guitar also.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught on an upright piano or acoustic/electric guitar. Student should bring own guitar. No pets. Waiting room out front for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I've performed at Carnegie Hall and I've had the opportunity to work with world renowned vocal coaches. I offer that as well as techniques that I've developed to help you reach your goals quickly and with great skill !

Carrie was a great teacher for my son! It takes a special kind of person to teach my son and she did a great job at it. Unfortunately Carrie had to move and we are not able to take more lessons with her but we really enjoyed the time we had together.

Berklee College of Music graduate teaching guitar. My students can expect to develop much faster than anyone around them. They will acquire skills that will allow them to learn any song or composition that they wish to learn. My students can, if they wish, become as skillful on the instrument as anyone on the planet!

I am not a big believer in "talent". In my opinion anyone can achieve extraordinary skill on the guitar.

Besides all the music theory concepts and technical skills that need to be acquired to become a great guitarist and musician, I provide systems and strategies that show my students not only what to practice, but HOW to practice and for how long; an often overlooked aspect in my experience with guitar lessons, and it can make all the difference!

About Andy
I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2002 with a Bachelor's of Music Degree (Majors: Guitar Performance, Contemporary Writing & Production).

I always create a personalized lesson plan for each individual student based on musical background, current abilities on the instrument, musical preferences (styles, bands, artists, songs) and student goals. For students with no prior musical training I prefer to go through a beginner's guitar method book along with my own materials to cover all the basics (parts of the guitar, tuning, reading standard music notation and tablature, rhythm, basic chords, etc.) If students are unsure about what songs they want to learn, I also have a huge collection of song transcriptions for different skill levels and in many different styles (Blues, Rock, Country, Jazz, Classical). Even though I can teach
all these styles to a certain degree, my specialization is in Rock and Blues. At Berklee I have studied with a lot of great guitar teachers. Among them Jon Finn and Joe Stump. I have studied extensively with Joe Stump in private lessons for 6 semesters and incorporate a lot of the material I have learned there into my own lessons. At the intermediate to advanced level I cover all important solo guitar techniques (Alternate Picking, Legato, Sweeping, Hybrid Picking, Tapping).

If you are stuck or can't get through certain barriers, I may be able to show you techniques or new ways to break through these barriers. You can finally get the results you always wanted or achieve skill levels you never imagined were possible. It does not need to take 10 years to become proficient at an instrument. Big improvements can be experienced after just a few months with the right training.

And most importantly, I believe music should be fun. I always try to make the experience of learning the guitar as enjoyable as possible.

My lessons are all about fast results!
If you see fast results you will have more fun.
If you have more fun learning the guitar you will practice more.
If you practice more you will get better faster.

So, your goals are most important to me and help in designing your lesson plans. If you are unsure I can help in setting goals. To reach your goals it is sometimes necessary to fill in gaps that prevent you from getting there, such as an understanding of music theory concepts (scales, chords, arpeggios, etc.) and improving technical skills on the guitar (legato, alternate picking, sweeping, etc.).

I can teach almost any style of Music, but I am best in Blues and Rock Styles, especially Classic Rock from the 60's, 70's, 80's, Blues Guitar, Hard Rock and Modern Rock Guitar Styles.

No better guitar teacher than Andy Mueller. I began with him when I was 10, and was able to progressive extremely because of his knowledge and methods of teaching. I am now 21 living in Paris, playing gigs and still remember and have all those sheets of scales he gave me years ago!

Anyway, hope all is well. If I ever find myself back in Dallas I will make sure to give you a call.

Andy taught both of my sons guitar from the time they were 10 and 13 until they both graduated from high school. He is an amazing teacher! Andy had both boys playing simple tunes from the very first lesson, which was so much more effective than teaching tedious scales and theory. They were hooked right from the beginning and continued to improve rapidly with Andy's method of teaching new material and styles, as well as reading music and advanced theory as their skills improved. Andy is very talented, patient, organized and creative in his ability to come up with new and interesting ways to learn. Both of my sons still play guitar. Andy has instilled in them a love of the instrument that will be with them for life. I give him 5 stars and recommend him highly! Melissa Auberty - Dallas, Texas

Being one of my first instruments, I have been playing guitar since a very young age. With a strong background in rock and jazz students can expect to build a strong fundamental of theory knowledge as well as versatility in multiple styles!

About Seth
My name is Seth and I offer private lessons for both guitar and bass guitars. Having a wide background of teaching all ages, and heavy experience with young children, I understand that every musician is in a different place. Whether you're just starting out or ready to get back into playing again, we can work together to establish what the best direction is for you.
I hold a bachelors in music performance from the University of Colorado Denver. Before involving myself with local Denver band Wildermiss and other musical projects, I was a member of the Blue Knights World Percussion Ensemble. Having gained that experience I was asked to instruct Rise World Percussion Ensemble where I was the front ensemble caption head. While going through school and my career I have recorded many different audio projects, as well as playing with various e
nsembles and bands.

Lessons can be offered both in my home at your own home within the greater Denver area!

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you so much for all you have taught Theresa. She has come so far in the last year. She has always been shy and very quiet but I have to tell you that we have noticed her really coming out of her shell. I owe this all to you! She feels confident enough in her playing her guitar that she has played for her class in school and now her very first recital will be this evening. I never really thought she would be comfortable playing for anyone. You are an amazing person with many talents. We are all looking forward to the show tonight!

· Composition · In studio
My lessons with Dave were an integral part of my growth and creative development as a musician and a composer. I had just started taking composition lessons and after assessing my talent and style my first teacher almost right away transferred me over to be taught by Dave. These lessons not only intensely modified my compositions specifically, but it generally taught me how to explore my own thought process to bring forth my true intentions in all of my music. No idea was ever too small or too large. My lessons with Dave helped me to understand my own musicality and brought me success in effectively communicating my music with others. Above all, Dave is amiable, dedicated, informative and caring. When understanding that these qualities are paired with his musicianship and instruction, you’d be hard pressed to find an equal.

I teach guitar in a variety of styles, equally able to coach beginners to classical or jazz guitar, students looking to develop their skills of accompaniment or self-accompaniment with chord charts and lead sheets, and those looking to widen their knowledge of music theory and discover why and how music works for their own compositions or deeper appreciation of the music they already play!

About William
William is a conductor, composer, actor, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. A live musician and recording artist of over a decade, he is versed in all styles of popular music and is equally at home in such diverse disciplines as jazz guitar, music theory, accordion/banjo/folk instruments, piano, and much more. His achievements in classical music have reached the notice of Opera News, which recently featured him in their August 2016 cover story. His work as conductor, performer, and stage director give him a wide breadth of knowledge and experience especially suited to dramatically-aspiring performance artists. For students wanting a comprehensive view of music and/or stage craft, William represents the complete package. From the singer needing vocal and dramatic coaching on their latest aria to the junior pianist working their way through
new repertoire, William's style combines knowledge of the craft at hand with context from related disciplines with a goal of always being able to answer the enterprising student's most important question: "Why?"
