Great first lesson!!
Grace W.
My daughter takes guitar from Maria and I didn’t realize how much she’s progressed until we went to a friend’s recital. 8 months with Maria and my child is leaps and bounds ahead of kids who’ve been taking for 2-3 years. It’s really motivating for her to see. Maria has standards which are non-negotiable but she’s patient and truly guides the kids to success. I’m so happy with our choice as her as a teacher.

Maria has been wonderful with our son. Very motivating and goal based. The recitals blow me away year after year. The progress these kids make with her plus the longevity of her students says a lot.

Great first lesson. We covered a lot of ground, or notes, rather.
btw, you had sent her the wrong date, so she was not expecting me, but we regrouped and had a great time.

She's really a great teacher. She's patient and encouraging, and she knows her stuff.

About Mikayla

My name is Mikayla and I have been playing guitar and piano for 9 years. When I first got started playing music, I was desperate for someone to sit down and teach me what I needed to know. After teaching myself through online videos for a while, I finally found a flexible piano teacher to get me fu

My kids (ages 6 and 4 1/2) have been getting private lessons with Mikayla for almost 2 months now and it’s been working out great. Mikayla is very professional and has the skills and patience that is required for a excellent piano teacher. She is very mature and is great with kids. My kids look forward to her coming over every week for their lessons. I highly recommend her.

Picking up a guitar for the first time (or the first time in a while!) can be very exciting! My hope is that with the help of some lessons you can enjoy playing guitar so much that you never want to put it down. This is why I like to keep lessons laid back and flexible. Lessons are tailored for each student to make sure everyone can have the best experience possible. Your goals are extremely important when it comes to lessons because everyone has different goals.

What are your goals for taking lessons? It could be learning to play your favorite songs, learning to solo, how to write your own songs, advice for playing live or in a recording studio, how to get the sounds of your favorite guitar players. The list could go on and on. Whatever your goals might be, I want to help you achieve them! I love most styles of music and I’m happy to teach most genres but some of my favorites are rock, alternative, blues, pop, and funk.

About Zack

I play guitar and write music in a band called Rosewood Coast, and I’m employed as a Contemporary Band Leader at a church in Cincinnati, Ohio. I have experience playing acoustic and electric guitar, bass, drums, piano, and singing. I have at least a little experience in teaching each instrument thr

As a guitarist, my primary concern is with your technique. I will show you proven strategies to help you play with power, control, and minimal effort. These principals set the foundations from which all world-class players are built. Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising your own.

Guitar is a fabulous instrument because of its incredible versatility. Together we will discover the many roles that the guitar can play including rhythms, melodies, fingerpicking, and solos. I will also help you understand the fundamental principles of music. This will take the guess work out of your playing, enabling you to make solid choices with consistent results.

Talk to you soon!

"I’ve been teaching myself guitar for almost a year now, I never wanted to spend crazy amounts for lessons that I would have to leave the house for. Lorin has done a fantastic job with starting small and allowing me to grow. I’ve learned more about how to put together songs, writing lyrics and creating a new project from scratch. If you are new or even if you know the basics, Lorin’s techniques will honestly help you find your sound and your pace for learning any of his specialized teaching routines. Thank you so much Lorin, I’m very satisfied with the lessons."

"When my 7-year-old son asked for guitar lesson's, my wife and I were at a loss. As we are not musically inclined at all. We found Jimmy from a friends recommendation and could not be happier. Our son, loves his lesson's with Jimmy, he is learning music theory , how to read music and how to make his guitar sing (for a 7-year-old, at least). Jimmy is very patient and attentive to the needs of such a small learner. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to play."

"I have spent one year locking myself up in my room, every day for a few hours at a time, stumbling my way to learning the guitar. On my own, I have made it far enough to be familiar with a repertoire of chords, able to learn songs and even develop the mindset for habit forming. But after one year I felt my own limits and decided to discard my ego and find a teacher.

From his profile here I could tell that Juan was not only a skilled musician, but a keen and pensive instructor. After a single session Juan was able to properly asses my abilities and my shortcomings and tailor-designed an approach that matches my personal and musical nature. He uses my strong affinity for technique and uses that to discourage my hesitancy toward theory. He has a comfortable and approachable presence where mistakes and flaws are encouraged as learning footstools. With humble discipline he pushes me to -want- to be better.

With Juan I am absolutely confident in not merely becoming an apt guitarist, but a genuine musician."
