View Full Profile

Beginners will learn the basics of how to hold, strum, fret, play their first chords, and get introduced to simple musical concepts.

Intermediate/Advanced students will learn ways of visualizing and mapping the fretboard. They will learn ways of improvising that break away from the pentatonic box cliches. Students will learn triads and 7th chords in all inversions and in multiple voicings. They will learn 9th, 11th, and 13th chords. Students will learn to think like musicians rather than just guitar players, learning how music works so they can essentially fit into any musical situation regardless of genre.

My goal is to make you a complete musician who is only limited by your own creativity and drive, not by the instrument itself.

About myles
I grew up playing in blues bands and eventually became interested in jazz. Over the years, I've gigged in a variety of genres from jazz and blues to r&b, hip-hop, soul, funk, pop, musical theater, rock, etc. in KC, NYC, and throughout the Midwest.

My teaching isn't genre-specific. I give you the tools and knowledge to do anything you want with music and the guitar, whether your goal is to strum folk songs, audition for music school, play blues or jazz guitar, or just about anything else.

My qualifications:

- B.F.A. in Jazz and Contemporary Music from The New School (NYC, 2012)
- M.M. in Jazz Studies from Aaron Copland School of Music (NYC, 2018)

I'm available to teach online via webcam and in person at Village Music Academy in Prairie Village, KS.

I have taken webcam lessons from Myles for a little over two years now and I couldn't ask for a better teacher. I had already played guitar for years and studied with a few local teachers, but was stuck in a rut. I now know a lot more about music than I did when I started with him.

Peter is an excellent instructor for piano. He is very easy to work with. I took lessons for about 9 months, and I have learned so much about music and how the piano works. I sincerely appreciate all of his efforts.

Any student that takes lessons from me can expect to take their playing to the next level with guidance and patience from me as the teacher.

About Megan
Hi! My name is Megan. I am a Wichita State graduate with a degree in music education. I have taught mandolin/violin/viola lessons for the past 7 years in Wichita, KS and in the KC area. I am also a elementary strings teacher for the KCK school district. Besides teaching music, I have also played mandolin/viola for several music projects from a typical Irish band to a free improve jazz ensemble. I am a very versatile player so I can teach/play from Irish to rock to jazz.

*** Lesson Details ***
When it comes to teaching private music lessons, I am a laid back teacher but I still have high expectations for each student. I really do not have a set curriculum because each student wants to learn something different.I use all my resources I have in order to meet the student's need. Whatever a student's avenue they want to take, I am confide
nt the student will have that much more knowledge before they had started.
I can teach mandolin any level and violin I can teach through book 3 of Suzuki or any other method book and viola through book 2 of Suzuki

*** Studio Equipment ***
Be in an open room much like a living room with amps, instruments, and other musical equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have their own instrument. I expect them to have their own music stand and an amp if need be. I will provide copies of music at a small charge ($5) and would be willing to purchase the material if the student gives the money up front.

*** Specialties ***
For the most part, I play Irish, Jazz, Blues, and Classical.

About Marcelo M.

Close
New York, NY

View Full Profile

My classes are very flexible when it comes to what the student wants. On the first class, I give the student the choice of controlling our lessons materials about what they want to learn. Or the student can choose to let me control our classes, in which I will bring my own materials and ideas in which we should work and will go through the whole academic process of learning music.

About Marcelo
Established New York musician. Berklee College of Music Graduate. Have been teaching for many years and know that each student has their own mindset and we need to work around each person`s goals and interests. I teach mainly pop, rock, blues, jazz, classical, funk, RnB. All ages and levels are welcome.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are very relaxed and we will focus on ways to practice and getting the student to learn what he/she wants. Some people just want to come and learn a few tunes, some want to really learn the instrument and practice all the time. It all depends on the individual and I`m more than ready to adapt for each one of my students with the methods I have.
On our first class we will spend some time discussing what are the goals of the student and I will formulate a good plan so we can reach those goals in no time
.
I usually have 3 main paths that the student can choose.
1st - Learn the instrument enough so you can play your favorite songs and have fun with friends.
2nd(most requested) - Learn the instrument from scratch. Study technique, repertoire, a little of reading and music theory and learn how to improvise. This will allow the person to have their own tools to study on their own after attending classes with me.
3rd - Usually people who have been playing before like this one. We will go deep in music theory, ear training, reading, improvising and technique. Always leaning challenging tunes that will develop the student skills. This one allows the student to follow a professional path on the future, or maybe go into a music college.

*Location
Classes can take place at my studio or at your own location with an extra fee for transportation.

*Under 18 students
For children under 18 parents are more than welcome to stay for the classes, tell me if there is any specific goal you are looking for or talk about any subject that you might want.

*AUDITION PREP
I also help people to prepare for auditions. For this subject, I will tell you how to get ready for an audition. If you are trying to get in a college I have many contacts around the country and know how most auditions work and can help you with any question there might be. For auditions for orchestras or band we can work on repertoire and behavior to get you ready and all set to get accepted.

Music lessons with me are one of a kind. My experience as both a classical guitarist and an electric guitarist who has played with successful rock bands puts me in a unique position to provide a breadth and depth of skills to my students. I earned a Doctorate in music composition; this education allows me to offer a deep understanding of the music a student and I will study using music theory and music history. In short, lessons with me are not only fun and vibrant--they are also intellectually invigorating!

About Frank
Hello! I am a Michigan-born, Kansas-based guitarist and composer. I love listening to hip-hop, rock and roll, and contemporary classical music. In my free time, I hang out with my wife, my dog, and my cat (and sneak in some video game time here and there!)

I have a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Kansas. I have been an active contemporary classical guitarist in the Kansas City area since arriving here in 2016. Over the past decade, I have earned a reputation as a dependable gigging guitarist and bassist. I have played guitar and bass in various musicals, operas, and rock bands since 2007. Additionally, my compositions have been performed across the USA as well as in Hong Kong, Croatia, and Canada.

I have over a decade of experience teaching guitar, bass, and beginner's piano. As a teacher, I have a reputation of being
fun and approachable to students of all ages while also being known as a teacher with a deep knowledge about music due to my real-world experience and academic training. Whatever your student studies with me, and whatever their goals may be, I can guarantee that they will have fun and be intellectually enriched.

Let's learn the most important chords. Play scales and melodies. Learn how to harmonize two guitars. Keep rhythm. Bring a song in your head to life.

I want to focus on teaching beginners. People who have never picked up a guitar before but want to get started. If this is you, I will be a good match. I want to show you how the guitar is not intimidating. You can play chords and sing a song, you can play for someone else, or you can learn the guitar just to know you've mastered it and can play from time to time.

About Darwin
Hi, I'm Darwin Dennison. I just graduated from UNCW with a BFA in Creative Writing. I started playing the guitar because I wanted to write songs. I'm fascinated with teaching people the basics of how to strum chords and figure out where they are on the guitar.
