I was very blessed to be on of Tom's students for a few years, working along side him in his shop. I was the untraditional student, an apprentice in a world where such students have become lost. Already a seasoned musician, that didn't mean there wasn't room for me to learn from Thomas. He helped teach me how to play his folk harps, as well as make them and repair them. I learned a great deal of folk traditions, and with his help, stepped outside of my classically trained box. Not to mention, his guidance and support actually gave me the confidence to become a performer, well paid at that. He encouraged me in ways most of my musical teachers failed me...all the more reason to praise his abilities because he was able to help me make many breakthroughs despite many bad teachers over the years. My college education was actually in education, and so, i can proudly say, he was also the most excellent teacher in teaching me how to teach. I was able to witness many of his lessons. Thomas is full of patience, love of music, and enthusiasm...all of which foster any student, no matter what the age or curriculum, to do his or her best. The years I spent with Tom will always be years i remember as extreme growth and fond memories.

Tom McShane has exposed me to a lot of great folk music from a variety of cultures and time periods. He gets you into playing songs right away. This preserves the joy of making music and gives you a sense of accomplishment . I'd taken instrument lessons in the past where the instructor would get all bogged down in technique and I'd never get to play any music, which destroyed my natural joy and motivation. Now I'm regaining it back, so for that I am very grateful.

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.

Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.

My husband and I just had our first few lessons with Trevor and we couldn’t recommend him more. As a high school band director who is a guitar beginner, I think that Trevor is a fantastic teacher. He makes music and guitar fun, ensures you feel successful in each lesson, and is teaching quality information in a very logical order and pace.

I've taken a couple of lessons from Trevor so far and they have been awesome. I've taken lessons from about 7 or 8 instructors in my lifetime and he is definitely one of, if not the best.
The thing that makes Trevor stand out to me is that he took the time to get to know what I wanted to learn and to figure out how I like to learn. He comes prepared to the lessons with material, answers any questions I have during the week by email and has worked with me to develop a specific education plan to meet my goals.
I suggest taking a trial lesson with this guy to see if you're on the same page. I am definitely not going anywhere else while I live in Austin.

The Acoustic Guitar is a beautiful instrument that can often prove hard for beginners! My approach brakes down playing guitar into its simplest technical and musical parts to save unwanted frustration and instead, provide a comfortable, confident foundation for students to accomplish their goals with the instruments. Lessons prepare students to play songs, read chords, and a variety of other skills. As an acoustic guitar player, I have years of accompaniment experience as both a singer song writer and children's entertainer.

About Max
I am a professional drummer, hand drummer, music producer and recording artist. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a degree in music education and percussion performance. I am a New York State Certified music educator with over 6 years of private and classroom teaching experience.

As a teacher, I give 100% of my effort to make sure students are seeing real, measurable learning happening every week. Its my passion to make music fun and accessible to every learner, no matter of skill, age or background. I believe in an individualized teaching approach that caters to needs of every unique student, because I believe whole heartedly that every person is capable of learning music, they just need the right tools to know how.

I have studied and worked as a professional drummer, hand drummer, and classical percussionist for more
the 10 years. I perform and record with bands, ensembles and singer song writers in Brooklyn and New York City, and have played with professional orchestras and in opera productions. I can teach students music reading, expert technique and any rhythms or style of music they are passionate about. I want every musician I work with to eventually have freedom, confidence, and creative expression on their instrument.

I have been playing classical and contemporary piano for more the 12 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue advanced classical ability, to learn how to play popular music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

Through collegiate teacher training, I can teach the following instruments to beginners of all ages in a physically healthy and cognitively appropriate way. I offer the most natural approach to these instrument with to goal of getting students playing songs and playing as quickly and efficiently as possible. (Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Trumpet, Violin, Clarinet).

Music production, recoding and song writing have been a part of my professional music career for the the last 5 years and I have recorded and produced scores for films, recorded albums, and live performances. I offer lessons in learning how to record and use professional music production software. Record your own music, and mix it into music that you have share to major platforms like spotify and itunes.

I have almost 4 years of experience in the field of early childhood music education (age 2-7), which aids the early development of a child's musical skills and abilities.

The best part of learning an instrument is playing the music you love or wish to create. My lessons are designed to maximize this potential, combining music appreciation, song learning challenges, and creative development.

Students will be shown the fundamentals of guitar playing with special attention towards creating your own music and learning to play with others. Lessons will revolve around making progress by learning songs, not exercises. This way students remain challenged but with minimal burn out.

Learn rock, indie, metal, singer-songwriter, and more. Develop your ability to write songs, make melodies, rip through killer solos and licks, and become a well rounded musician.

About Aldo
Hello prospective students,

My name is Aldo Moreno. I am a student at California State University Long Beach and have been teaching guitar for a little over a year.

The goals for my students are pretty simple. First we identify some goals that you want to aim for. That could include improving technique, learning a certain song, or writing your own music! Whatever your guitar goals are, I am here to push, and encourage you to get them. You want to have killer solos? I can show you that. You want to learn some theory? I can show you that. You want to expand your arsenal of licks and chords? I can show you that. You want to write better songs or learn to play with others? I can show you that too.

Along the way I will expose students to new ideas, techniques, and new music to make you into a well-rounded musician. I keep detailed records
on progress made and achieved for each student so that each lesson has quantifiable results.

I have been playing guitar for well over 10 years and can say that it is not just a hobby but my passion. I have performed at venues such as The Viper Room as a solo artist and with bands. I hope to instill in my students not just quantifiable results in your guitar playing, but a better understanding of why you are drawn to music, what makes you want to play, and your creative abilities.

I look forward to our future lessons!
