Background:
I worked for Eddie Van Halen for five years in the 1990's in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles and was instrumental in providing help with development of the Peavey Wolfgang and Wolfgang Special Guitar by providing feedback on the prototypes Eddie was designing at the time. I learned a lot from Eddie and his brother Alex about music and the music industry. (All you have to do is pay attention! ) I have played in bands from Hollywood to Toronto and back both as a singer songwriter and guitarist. I bring the Musicians Institute way to the table and get things up and ru
nning quickly. I help students get it under their fingers fast and get it right the first time.

I believe in sharing the happiness of making music with anyone who loves music and the guitar in particular. I do my very best to get you playing the songs you love in Pop, Rock, Jazz and Folk Music of your choice. Today's modern new guitars are easy to play and you will enjoy learning Guitar right away. That is how it should be.
When you study there is a basic understanding of Guitar to be learned that allows an ease of use for anyone for years to come. This will help you reach your goal and improve each week. My students learn to practice in a way that feels comfortable and makes sense. This takes all the stress out of learning and gives everyone something to smile about and look forward to each week.

The good feeling of playing along with friends and taking a solo is within every students grasp. I will show you the way there. And with a solid and straightforward approach to the theory as it applies directly to the guitar you will feel confident and unafraid of any music endeavor. We'll cover harmony and fingerboard theory and give you a road map of the guitar neck that makes it a pleasure to play. You learn the basics and much more than you thought possible retaining 90 percent of what you learn!

Having been a student myself I was deeply involved in music since age 12 and played in bands and duos for over 15 years . I can help you to be a well rounded player and performer with a smile, a laugh and a joy for music whether your in a band or a budding solo artist.

*** Lesson Details ***
Most students want to play the Guitar to play their favorite songs and I'm the same way. Music is something we carry with us in our hearts and minds. Students will learn what they wish to learn and work at a pace that is comfortable to them. Whether you are a student, “weekend warrior” or a parent whose child has expressed an interest in Guitar anyone can learn all there is to know about Harmony and Theory for the Guitar and how to play their favorite songs.

We cover theory in an easy and straightforward no nonsense way in the first half of each lesson and then apply it to the song you wish to learn. This creates an atmosphere where you understand and feel at home with the Guitar. You get an understanding right away and because it is immediately fun it allows you to feel comfortable at any level. Music is fun, and songs are the creative expression of what we feel. Combining theory and the freedom to play and sing songs allows us to express ourselves through music. 
After 6 months students will have a solid foundation in theory, and a road map of the guitar fretboard enabling them to advance to an intermediate level if they are ready to do so. Students will know enough that music as it relates to the Guitar, which is the world’s most popular instrument in contemporary music, is not a mystery but is a welcome friend. And they will be able to play songs by popular artists and advance at a pace that is satisfying and enjoyable.

What James spouse says about working on songwriting with him:

"James is my husband for over 10 years now. Over the years, I have seen James give guidance and counsel to many hopeful musicians of all ages, and inspire others about how music influences and benefits our lives. I would highly recommend James to anyone who wants to learn guitar, voice, music theory, and acting. James is a great talent, and study with him would benefit anyone with the sincere desire to grow as an artist. When we married, I had fallen in love with James’ conversational style, and his vast knowledge of music. When I heard him play guitar, I knew that I wanted to write songs with him, and we released our first album, in 2012 on iTunes."

Just had my first lesson. I have never played a musical instrument or have any musical training. James made me feel comfortable right away. I thought I made a very good start. Feeling like I will really enjoy this and am confident I will pick this up faster than I thought.

James is very kind and mellow enough to make the most insecure person feel confidant and energetic enough to be motivating and fun!!!! Warm natured.... and his wife is so pretty!!! I could never sing infront of anyone but he made me feel so natural the first day!!! He is not pushy and does not make you feel rushed or nervous!

I am passionate about music and teaching guitar. I am a self-taught guitar player so I know what it is like to be a beginner, knowing nothing. I put a lot of thought into teaching myself so I can easily teach others. Beginner students will learn the basic chords, finger picking and artificial harmonics. Intermediate students will learn how to tap, pick harmonics and artificial harmonics. Pull offs and bending notes, usually found in Rock & Roll and Country, can easily be learned and included. Students need to have a good guitar, be eager to learn and complete homework/practice.

Hello, I am looking forward to teaching you how to play the guitar. I am patient, kind-hearted and dedicated to seeing you succeed.

Rather than teaching all my students the same way I create individual lesson plans based on their interests and songs they like. I want to convey my ear training ability to the student so they can apply it in the future. I find that songs can help the student get a strong theoretical context in order to learn music and guitar technique. All types of music and all levels of playing ability are my forte.

About Tom
I have been teaching music since 1975 when I graduated from Bellarmine University with an Associate of Fine Arts degree in music theory and composition. I have played with many artists and bands in the Louisville area and also in New England and the Caribbean .
As a professional musician I am well versed in all genres of music and enjoy teaching others the music that they want to play. I have found that most theoretical and technical aspects of music can be learned from many different styles."There are twelve tones and no one owns them" is a saying my music composition teacher would always tell us at college.
I encourage my students to explore their interests in music and expand their knowledge of what they want to play. I have had extensive ear training and can notate any song for you. most of all I have fun every day with music a
nd want to share that with my students!

About Charlie
I am a highly experienced guitarist who is fluent in practically every style. Though i specialize in classic rock and heavy metal. I have been playing guitar for 8 years and teaching for 4. My class focuses on giving beginners a great solid set of skills to expand on and find their own voice on guitar, I aim to give students the exact tools for their skill level, I am a very relaxed and friendly teacher, i believe in never overwhelming or discouraging my students by bombarding them with abstract music theory concepts their first day playing guitar. My lessons are designed to slowly and healthily build technical ability in a stress free and helpful environment where every question is answered and explained in detail. Students will learn to play musical concepts, including but not limited to by any means: Scales, chords, modes, songs, impro
visation and techniques from simple palm muting and, to highly technical sweep picking patterns, tapping and string skipping. This is the perfect class for beginners wanting to gain confidence and learn their favorite songs, or hardened guitar shred veterans wanting to jam and learn new tricks.

I’ve been giving guitar and music theory lessons for four years now, and I’ve taught a variety of ages. Whether it’s rock and roll, country, or alternative, I promise you’ll be playing your favorite song after a few lessons! Every student receives lessons that are tailored to their interests. My job is to help you reach your goals in a fun and personalized way while also teaching you the fundamentals of music.

About Daniel
Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for over eight years now, and I’ve been teaching guitar and music theory lessons for a little over four years. For the past six years, I’ve been playing lead electric guitar in my church’s band. Also, I’ve been involved in multiple nationally ranked choirs and performed at Carnegie Hall. I’m also the lead guitarist in a singer-songwriter trio called Two Beards and a Boy. We’ve played at city events, fundraisers, and restaurants in the DFW area.

I began taking guitar and music theory lessons in fifth grade, and I developed a love for guitar and music. It has played a huge role in my development, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Nothing beats the excitement of a student as they’re able to play their first song. Whether it’s learning rock and roll, country, or acoustic, learning how to write
songs and perform, I can’t wait to help you reach your goal.

I’ve taught students as young as eight and as old as sixty. I make sure to structure each student’s lessons to fit their goals and needs. I promise to focus solely on what the student is wanting to learn. All of my lessons are designed to be fun and informative, and the student is in complete control. I have been working with youth for many years through the Upward Sports program, and I love building connections with all of my students to create a comfortable and fun learning environment.

As a college student at UT, I am very flexible with scheduling, so feel free to contact me about available times for lessons. I hope to hear from you soon, and please let me know if you have any questions!

Daniel has been great. I'm in my 50's and am just now starting out with guitar. Daniel has been very patient with me and worked hard to find ways to teach me so that it made sense to me. I was able to learn at my pace and be able to play songs I wanted to learn. I would definitely recommend him.
