Students learn how to play rhythm and lead while applying the knowledge to songs by their favorite artists.

About Jon
I have been playing guitar since the age of 9. I have studied Classical, and Jazz at CCM's Prep Dept. in middle school and throughout high school as well as rock, folk, country etc. with other local teachers. I started teaching lessons at the age of 18 in local music stores and have never stopped. While doing this I attended The College of Mount St. Joseph where I studied Classical and Jazz guitar as well as Music Ed. In addition to my 22 years of private lesson experience, I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching general music in elementary schools. I believe it is my years as a student and instructor that enable me to be an effective teacher, having had learned what worked for me as a student, and what has shown to work as a teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
I cater my lesson to the individual. I like for students to have
a structured practice routine and working knowledge of music and their instrument, but it has to be fun. I have students who learn Classical, rock, and Jazz. Each lesson is different. Some people just want to be able to play their favorite songs by a camp fire, and others want to go on to perform at Carnegie Hall. I enjoy teaching both lessons and put forth the same enthusiasm for each one. You get out of the guitar or bass what you put into it in terms of learning and practicing. The level of achievement is up to you, I will help guide you to meet your goals regardless of how large or small they are.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Spare music room: guitars, amps, bass; computer with recording software, ProTools seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have all the equipment necessary. I would like the student to have an instrument, but if not I can provide one for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I'm really pretty versatile. Over 18 years of teaching anywhere from 80 to 100 students a week will do that.

As an adult learning to play an instrument for the first time, very little has come naturally. I had tried two other instructors prior to Derek and felt as though I made little progress with them. Derek's approach is much more intuitive and the progress more obvious. great teacher with a sound approach.

It’s always a very special time a guitar student wants to learn about the blues. As an improviser, this is one of my favorite topics to teach.
We will listen to the great blues guitarists, discussing their individual sound and technique. Lots of time will be spent learning scales and basic harmonic principles. Most importantly though, we will jam! It’s not easy at first, but I promise to keep the vibe easy-going and positive.

About David
My name is David and I'm a professional musician who just moved to North Austin. I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend. I have been teaching for over fifteen years, and I'm looking to get a few new students.
I teach guitar, piano, bass guitar and even upright bass. If it's a tutor you are looking for I can also teach music theory and appreciation. I have a knack for teaching young people, probably because I was young when I started my musical journey. I've been very successful at inspiring a student's love of music and instilling the patience required to take on the challenge of playing an instrument.
The first thing I like to do is get to know you, the music you enjoy and your goals. In a way, I l
ike to begin by letting the student lead.
In addition to learning from you, I intend to present you with new information, to try and broaden your musical tastes and teach you how to be an active listener.

Las Vegas, NV
View Full Profile

Pro musician/recording artist, over 15 years teaching experience. I MAKE LEARNING TO PLAY FUN. I call my teaching style "50-50" Because 50% percent is what you want and 50% is what you need. You'll learn by working towards your goals using music that you enjoy (Rock/Blues/Country/Jazz/etc)

About Nairobi
My goal is to make you shine. All lessons are individually designed specifally for you. Also, I know HOW to teach effectively. Establishing trust and communication is key. All lessons are customized to your musical tastes and particular style of learning. There are many talented professional musicians who aren't good teachers. It took my first year on the job to master the methods of being an effective teacher (and I'm still learning!) Besides musical skill, it takes patience and empathy (enjoying your work helps too!)
What I like most about teaching is...spreading music, playing music - listening and helping others play...Everyday is fun, it's totally inspiring. I think my favorite thing is when students proudly play music that they've composed. Even my bad days are good!

Nairobi has been a great instructor. He does not use the "one size fits all approach", but rather will customize the instruction to what you want. Accordingly, students will remain interested and get more out of it when the curriculum is of interest to them. I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but wasn't interested in learning to read music. Nairobi also let's you choose what type and what specific songs you'd like to learn. Learning to play your favorite rock, pop or blues song versus Mary Had a Little Lamb- guess which one keeps you more motivated and interested in learning how to play? Also, being able to have the lesson in the privacy of your own home is great. He makes learning to play the guitar fun. If you put the work in you'll be playing in no time.

Nairobi was very helpful with his instructions, and used analogies and examples to help me better understand the lesson. Really walked me through. By the time I was assigned the homework, I already had a clear idea of how to practice.

Even if you have never held a guitar before, I will have you jamming by the end of our first lesson. I don't use note names, but instead teach you to improvise in every key using memorable, movable patterns on the fretboard. I’ll show you how to find the key of any given song so that you can begin playing along with your favorites in your free time using the patterns I’ve shown you. Getting better at guitar is all about spending time with the instrument; what you will learn in our lessons will provide you with ample material to practice by giving you the tools to make an infinite amount of great sounding music, even after just one lesson! After your fretting hand has become accustom to the neck of the guitar and your picking/strumming hand has developed the necessary coordination, we will build your chord vocabulary and begin experimenting with different rhythms.

g with different rhythms.

Learning theory can be a turn off for some people in the early stages of guitar playing, but as soon as you express interest in understanding why and how the chords in your classic tunes sound so good together, I’m great at explaining to people with all different learning styles. Visual learners, especially, will greatly benefit from the fact that I am a left-handed player. When one righty tries to show another righty something on guitar, the student has to take the extra step of inverting the finger positions being shown to him/her by the teacher. With me, however, our guitars will align in a mirror image. The second you see me play something, it will be much easier to process what I am doing than if you had to flip it.

I have a great deal of experience teaching complete beginners of all ages and find it extremely fulfilling to bring someone who has never held a guitar before the incredible joy and liberation that comes with learning how to play along. Study with me, and you will connect on a much deeper level with the music that you have been listening to your whole life.

I hadn't picked up a guitar in 10 years and didn't remember anything, so I was pretty scared to start again. Ian was really patient and kind. He suggested that we start with a song I liked and knew well, which was a great idea. We started by playing some simple finger patterns along with the music & pretty soon I felt more confident and was glad that I started playing again. Ian is an amazing guitarist, so I thought he might be too advanced to teach me, but he was able to work really well with me as a beginner.

I have been playing guitar in various capacities for over 40 years. I have taught beginners and intermediate students for the last 8 years. What ever your desires are relating to guitar, be it learning to play songs from a song book, learning to figure songs out by ear, improve your current playing abilities, I can help! And make it fun!

I have taught students ranging in age from 8 yrs old, to adults in their 50s. If you enjoy music, and want to dive deeper into it, just to play for your own enjoyment, or, if you have an itch to learn to play in a band or jam with some friends, I can get you there!!

About Andy
I started playing guitar in the late 60s. Started playing professionally for approximately 5 years around 1978. Played music off and on until 1993 when I got involved with my churches worship band. Began teaching around 2008 at Sidekick Studios.

I teach beginners and intermediate students of all types, from 9 yr olds wanting to play Taylor Swift songs to 55 yr old guys wanting to learn blues. I can play and teach a variety of styles including country, pop, rock, blues, folk and introduction to jazz.

I get the most satisfaction when a student latches on to an idea and runs with it, or when a student thinks they can't do something and together we work and accomplish it!

I am going into my TENTH year of teaching and plan on being around a long while!

Also, I am currently playing in an acoustic rock duo and also enjoy playi
ng solo acoustic gigs at small venues around town.

Andy was always good about being available for our son during the week if he had questions about his homework or guitar lesson for the week! Andy always praised our son when needed and challenged him in a professional manner to increase his love of the instrument!

About Michael
Guitar and bass is hard enough and the word "fun" should come into the picture somewhere. New musicians need a balance of information explained correctly and the comfort of having the right instructor to get you to where you want to be as a player. Having studied at three music universities and numerous private music instructors, I'm able to bring the best information about songwriting, producing, performing in the studio, music theory, reading music on acoustic/electric and bass guitar to the new players of today. With a professional career of over 40 years and after working with over 50 major recording artists and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members such as Crosby, Stills and Nash, Donna Summer, Olivia Newton John, Joe Walshe, Jackson Browne and Ringo Starr to name a few, my experience is what allows me to bring the new players into the
world of music. I have a solid reputation as a top guitar and bass instructor with credits and references if needed. I also teach special needs students. I welcome your call and interest. I will answer any questions you may have. Start playing guitar today.
