About Timothy
I draw on my experience, as a professional musician of 25 years, in my teaching of others. This experience includes -
Church music; both as a soloist and as a music director.
Touring musician; stage presence, improvisation, sound.
Carnival Cruise Lines staff musician; '99 -2000

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that your interest in the instrument from the "get-go" is what makes the lessons seem to fly by. As you learn, this interest only gets stronger. It is my responsibility as the teacher to make sure your time spent with me is time spent where knowledge is TRANSFERRED to you and not DISPLAYED to you. There will be responsibilities for you as the student, as this is necessary in order for you to get intimately acquainted with your instrument. But my style of teaching is simple & laid back. I feel the need that learning be enjoyable.
..as we both learn together and as you get to the place that you want to be as a musician!...at your pace!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my personal instrument. The student must provide instrument he / she wishes to learn on.

Justin is a brilliant piano teacher. He is very engaging in his lessons and you can always be sure to learn and improve. Justin is flexible to both what you know and what you need improvement on and will quickly stretch to fortify your musical ability. He is never without a smile and never negatively criticizes. I would recommend him for any new students that are looking to learn or improve in piano.

Last year, I had the opportunity to study with Christian at CSU Northridge. Christian is one of the finest musicians I have come across in the years that I have been playing music. Not only does he have impressive skills with the guitar, he also has knowledge in the history of the guitar and music theory. When he was studying at CSUN, I was able to have some lessons with Christian on a baroque piece that was giving me trouble. First, I'd like to mention how patient he was with me when I was frustrated and lost in the music. Also, I was surprised at how much he knew about the music as he explained what was going on in the piece and why. Oh... did I mention that I had some AWESOME results after ONE lesson??? Do yourself the favor and check this guy out!

I can teach guitar fundamentals, that most songs only use 3 chords (1-4-5 song progressions the stuff that 85% of all music we listen to is made up of), left hand / right hand coordination, picking techniques, mute, & play notes on the guitar, soloing, strumming patterns, fingerpicking, using a capo, alternate tunings, acoustic blues, ...

About Tim
I love to help anyone who has been told they're not able to play guitar, has quit out of frustration, or been told they're too old or too young to play.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is customized to your learning style and different for everyone depending on what you want to learn. Most of my students like to learn from scratch which would include the following:
In the first 3 lessons you will learn basic guitar fundamentals, basic 1-4-5 song progressions (the stuff that 85% of all music we listen to is made up of), left hand / right hand coordination, picking techniques, how to strum, mute, & play notes on the guitar.

We can play as a band too. When you are ready, I love to bring out the drum or backing tracks to your favorite artists songs while you play guitar and I play what your not, giving you the feel of a live group
situation that can make learning at your lesson more fun.

Genres include Acoustic, Blues, Country, R&B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Rock, Pop and more.

I teach and play just about anything from classical and jazz to rock!

About Thomas
I am a classical guitarist who recently graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD as a student of Ray Chester. I began my studies at Peabody with a classical and jazz guitar double major with a computer music composition minor. I have performed in masterclasses with Manuel Barrueco, Sharon Isbin, Andrew York, Lorenzo Micheli, Matteo Mela, Gohar Vardanyan, Adam Holzman, Marcin Dylla, Matt Palmer, Pablo Sainz Villegas, Thibaut Garcia, and others.

In 2014 and 2015, I was selected to perform in the Peabody Conservatory's "Thursday Noon Recital Series", where I performed "Impromptus" by Richard Rodney Bennett, and "Sonata III" by Manuel Ponce. In 2015, I commissioned and presented the world premiere of the guitar duo piece entitled "Sol Negro" by composer Peter Dayton.

For summer 2015, I was
granted a merit scholarship to Le Domaine Forget International Music Festival, where I studied with Bruce Holzman. I was a finalist and top prize winner in the 2015 ASU guitar competition. During my last year of study at Peabody, I also studied privately with Matt Palmer, who authored "The Virtuoso Guitarist: A New Approach to Fast Scales."

In 2016, I was granted a scholarship to study at the Aspen Music Festival under Sharon Isbin. I am now pursuing my masters degree under full scholarship at the Florida State University College of Music, where I am also a graduate teaching assistant to Bruce Holzman.

I play and teach classical, jazz, rock, acoustic, and have extensive knowledge of theory, ear training, and guitar technique/pedagogy/fretboard harmony.

Oceanside, CA

I teach basic guitar technique, chord reading, contemporary music skills, and music theory that fits into the student's current level of understanding.

About Matt
With most of my music students, we focus on several key areas to ensure success of overall technique and knowledge: WARM-UPs, SCALES, MUSIC THEORY, SIGHT-READING, and PREPARED SONGS. I tailor my approach and style to each student. Although I'm very detail-oriented with lessons and followup, I'm constantly in search of finding FUN ways to make sure the student is enjoying the journey. I also prefer to work on a song that the STUDENT wants to learn. It's music, and it should be fun!

Please review the rest of my profile and send me any questions or concerns you may have. If I don't think I can be the best teacher for you, I will gladly refer you to someone else on Takelessons or elsewhere.

I've been a lifelong musician, and love finding unique and fun ways to motivate my students. I've worked with most styles of music before,
and arranged music for many as well, so I'm very comfortable helping students with a variety of disciplines and interests. My professional experience in both the civilian and military music communities has given me an open-minded yet direct approach to WHAT you should learn, and HOW to develop each student's individual skills. I'm able to teach most students to an advanced level.

I have been teaching professionally since 2011. I hold a masters degree from the University of Louisville, and a bachelors degree from Morehead State University, studying jazz guitar at both schools. I have been teaching students from ages 5-60 with varying skill levels. My lessons specialize in learning technique along with the music theory to back it up. I also teach how to read standard music notation, guitar tablature, and also guitar maintenance. My philosophy for teaching is that every one of my students will be able to function effectively in any musical genre that they choose, and be able to understand the theory behind what is being played.

About Josh
I am a professional guitarist, guitar teacher, composer, and audio engineer from Louisville, Ky. I hold a masters degree from the University of Louisville and a bachelors degree from Morehead State University, both studying jazz guitar performance.

My principle instrument teachers include Craig Wagner, Glenn Ginn, Peter Mazza, and Dani Rabin. I also studied music theory and improvisation under Chris Fitzgerald (bass), Gordon Towell (saxophone), Steven Snyder (piano/organ), Mike Tracy (saxophone), and Ansyn Banks (trumpet). I have been fortunate enough to perform at JEN (Jazz Education Network) convention, and KMEA (Kentucky Music Education Association). I have also performed with artists such as Eric Alexander, Jim Snydero (opened for him), Pat Coil, Jamey Aebersold, Ryan Cohen, Amina Figarova, and Dan Haerle, just to name a few.

My t
eaching career started in 2011 while I was at MSU. Since then, I have moved to Gittli Music Studios in Jeffersontown, and have worked with numerous students of all ages and skill levels. I frequently work with students that have never picked up the instrument. Students that have been playing for a year or less and are just getting their start. Also students that have been playing for years and just wanting to hone their skills and technique. All of my students after lessons with me should know the entire fretboard of the guitar, and be able to function effectively in any musical genre that they would like to play. I look forward to working with you, and sharing my knowledge of how make great music!
