Emmanuel T.

Honolulu, HI

About Emmanuel

I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching beginning students to quickly learn how to play the guitar. I have been playing the guitar for over 20 years, have experience performing classical and rock music, and have the ability to teach children, teens, and adults how to read music for the guitar. I continuously seek alternate ways to explain the language of music and I add to the knowledge I've gained through several guitar and music theory courses I've taken at the University of Hawaii.

*** Lesson Details ***
In learning the guitar in a one on one environment, you will be able to lear
n how to understand your instrument and learn the language of music at your own pace. You will learn the basics of reading music and the necessary musical resources to be able to play classical, contemporary, and/or popular music. I will be able to cater to the necessary components that you'll need to play in whatever objective or setting that you desire, whether it is the desire for continued personal knowledge; to be able to perform in a club, at a party, or other social setting; to confidently freestyle with other musicians; the choice is yours. In a few months, you'll learn all the open chords, be able to transition between chords timely, have confidence in learning and playing bar chords, and will have gained basic knowledge of reading music for the guitar. After 6 months, you will recognize patterns for chords and the relationships between 2 or more notes that will lead you to freestyle (creating or mimicking melodies with accompaniment) through the guitar.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: practice amp, chairs, music stand, additional seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have an electronic tuner and classical guitar. I have a portable amp if the student needs one. I expect the student to at least have a guitar of their own to practice with.

Last year, I took beginner Classical Guitar Lessons from Emmanuel and he was so helpful. He taught me tricks on how to remember the notes and frets. He also taught me a Weezer Song which inspired me to keep on playing with the strings and cords. Thank you for all the help!

Outstanding Guitar Lessons

My 10 year old daughter has taken 5 lessons from Manny so far, and it is incredible how much she has learned in such a short time. She has become much more comfortable and confident when she picks up her guitar. Manny is very organized and patient and professional. It has been extremely convenient since he travels to our home for the lessons. He's great with kids - and with us parents, too. He takes his time working at a manageable and enjoyable pace. My daughter's musical education has a great foundation, thanks to Manny, and I am beyond proud and excited to see her continued progress on the guitar! Thank you, Manny!

Brian J.

Honolulu, HI

About Brian

Originally I was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1979. I have been in Hawaii for 15 years now and have lived on three different Islands. I used to play for Forward Reggae band on Big Island and the Big Island music school. I have been playing guitar for 22 years. I have played live and professionally on and off for different bands in my twenties but now am a returning student at UH working on another degree in teaching, so I prefer to just teach mostly now instead of play live. I can teach and play many different styles including classical, flamenco, reggae, blues, jam band music, punk, alternati
ve, folk, and finger picking guitar. I'm currently working on fingerstlye arrangements! I teach enough music theory to actually understand songs you personally want to learn or listen too. I teach popular rhythms and chord progressions that will give you a more fuller understanding of the guitar world and music. I specialize in working with people no matter what level and experience level currently at.

I believe every ounce of knowledge gained in life is meant to be absorbed and utilized for your own growth and benefit, but then it meant to be passed on to someone else. That is my goal and I promise I will pass to you all I know.
