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.

My first lesson with Justin went well. I have social anxiety so meeting new people is always a stressful experience for me. I was much more comfortable than expected and learned a lot. I definitely recommend Justin if you are looking for lessons in any of the areas he offers.

wonderful books for ages 5 through Adult. Also a great way to sing and read music while playing an instrument. Can be taught to read music, may also learn by Tablature. Books can also take in your specific interests, rock, jazz, country, etc.

About Mary
Music degree from Lawrence University and Conservatory in Appleton, WI. Graduate work in conducting, piano, and vocal pedagogy at Westminster Choir College in Princeton. Also certified in Kindermusik for ages newborn to 7.

My studio, since 1993 is located in the back of my house and is in a family friendly location.

As my education originally was music education, elementary and secondary, I have gone on to be certified in teaching adults, both beginning and returning. There is so much piano and vocal educational material geared to the pre-school, the elementary, Jr-Sr high and Adult beginner and I promise we will have fun while learning.....

Anyone can learn an instrument and anyone can learn many different styles. Lessons will be geared toward your interests and goals, which we can work on at your lesson also.

The grea
test virtues of a music teacher are passion, patience, understanding, and communicating. You will experience this in the studio. Give yourself a treat of two months of lessons and I promise you will be playing and/or singing better than you expected.

Member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), NFMC (National Federation of Music Clubs),

*** Lesson Details ***
I am generally easy going and laid-back and will work with you to obtain specific goals such as a piece you would really like to learn. I can be strict if assignments are not followed or if there is no progression; we need to analyze why that is. I use many teaching methods as there are many different learning styles. The series I am currently using are Faber, Alfred, and Celebrate Piano! for pianists. Many singers are in Broadway, Disney, and/or English Reliquary and Italian Arias. There are so many wonderful choices! I can guarantee after three months you will be playing some music you like, and you will be reading music, and able to perform if you wish (starting small). With singing you will have basic knowledge of proper posture, breathing, and increased range. I also so enjoy people and communicating so you will feel comfortable taking lessons, and I believe that is one major factor of success in learning an instrument: the student-teacher relationship And second for children, especially the young, is the parent-teacher relationship .

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: Yamaha baby grand piano, Kawaii studio upright and keyboard, Yamaha keyboard, recording abilities, computer software, couch and two chairs, parents can sit in on lesson. Also have computer programs for note learning, composition, as well as giving you apps to download.

*** Specialties ***
Different methods for different students. Piano: mostly Faber and Alfred series. "Prodigy": Aaron/Thompson series. I've also had graduate study in teaching the Adult Beginner! As I was a church music director 1994 till last September, I am very familiar with traditional and contemporary sacred music, learning and performing. If you also wish to combine singing and accompanying yourself on piano or guitar lessons can be tailored.

When I was a little girl I always to sing. Unfortunately, I was not blessed with the natural ability to sing. One night I was out with some friends checking out live music, and I met Sam Dicesare. She was kind enough to talk to me after her show, and I expressed my love for singing. I asked if she gave lessons and SHE DOES!!! Over the last 8 months I have been taking weekly vocal lessons from Sam. And I see a huge improvement in my singing voice!(I'm sure my dogs and neighbors thank her as well!!) She never got frustrated with me in the beginning while I struggled to stay on key. It's obvious she wants her students to succeed. She has been a huge help and is always there too answer my questions!!!

I have been taking lessons from Sam for about 4 years! I started out not knowing anything about guitar and now I am playing shows often and pursuing my dream!!! Sam is such a fun instructor and really breaks things down in the lessons making it very easy to learn! So whatever skill level you are, Sam Dicesare will be able to take your guitar playing to a whole other level. That girl is out of this world!!!!

Every musical success begins with a small note - HR

I have created my own program to teach students from beginner to Advanced levels, I wrote it myself. I wish I would've had a program like that when I began my musical journey with the guitar, I have arranged the subjects in a special order that makes easy the learning process for my students. I like to demystify all theoretical and practical concepts applied to the guitar so the student can easily understand chords, scales, techniques, harmony, improvisation and other subjects that usually take years to master. My goal is to translate all this knowledge at the student's own pace, yielding quick results in 3-6 months.

About Hedras
Hello,
I can teach you Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Music Theory and Pro Tools Software.

I had over 200 students in my own academy Guitar Institute of Guatemala and lots of Private and Skype Students.
You can expect fun lessons but full of helpful information that will help you to improve as a player or help you to start learning songs and playing guitar if you are a beginner.

I've been playing guitar for 14 years now. I specialize in electric guitar and am currently the lead guitarist for a touring band. While teaching lessons, it is my goal to give a person a solid foundation in music theory and technical skill from beginner onward. I can also teach you how to jam and improvise with other musicians, so you can practice with other people you know to gain skill. It has been through years and years of touring the Southeast and Midwest with jam/funk/fusion projects that I have learned the ways of individual and group jamming, creative process, and individual practice. I'm excited for the opportunity to pass my knowledge on.

About Rodney
I have been a musician my whole life. I love everything to do with music. I love traveling, playing, teaching, and just being around music and learning. I am patient, easy-going, and will take the time to break things down for you in whatever teaching style fits your needs. I am well-versed in improv jam and can teach you how in layman's terms or in intermediate terms for more advanced players! I can meet you where you are, challenge you, and make it fun for you because it's my greatest passion. I can also teach you music theory, rhythm, all of the chords, chord voicing, inversions, palm muting, harmonics, arpeggios, scales, modes, tonicization, counterpoint, and most genres you may be interested in!

Theory will be given in small, easily-digestible pieces, and always within the context of actual musical examples. If you're interested in learning to sing while playing, I'll also help you find ways to incorporate it early on so that it becomes more natural as you progress.

For students with some experience the direction of our lessons will be largely determined by your personal needs and goals, but subjects we might cover include songwriting, finger-picking, expanding chord vocabulary, ...
