Anything and everything guitar is my specialty. Classical or regular acoustic welcome. We will cover the parts of the instrument and why everything is so darn important (like how to stay in tune!).

If you plug your guitar in, we can perfect your guitar's signal flow, pedals, and amplifier settings, too!

I cover all kinds of styles, from simple note and scale picking and open chords, to pop/rock/punk/metal/blues/jazz/fingerpicking/classical and more.

Want to learn basic rhythm? lead? fast strumming? how about making those big chords without making your hands hurt? I can help! You'll be jamming along with your favorite songs and with friends in no time.

I typically will teach and write guitar using tablature instead of standard sheet music. These are a simple set of lines and numbers that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.

Also I can show you how to play with a capo or slide, fingerstyle or pick. If you ...

Nate is always very patient with me and fun to have as a guitar instructor. He never makes me feel stupid, no matter how many times I need him to explain something

I am a 61 yr old and I come from the old school so keep this in mind - as a newbie, I was expecting a timeline of what we were going to learn each class session and if all was successful, where I should be (level wise) if all worked out according to plan! But, again, the world has changed and I am probably behind and so I am also learning! I will continue as this is only the first class and I believe things are just warming up!!! Looking forward to a great experience!

Lee teaches acoustic guitar using a holistic and minimalist musical approach — you only learn what you really need to know. Learn how to play songs and have fun while you increase your guitar skills.

Students can learn on a steel-string acoustic guitar or a nylon string (classical) guitar. No note-reading is required to learn chord progressions, song structure, and effective strumming and picking patterns for folk, blues and rock acoustic guitar.

Lee uses a combination of her own visual materials and chord grids, popular acoustic songs, and select acoustic guitar method books. She's also a Beatles expert and can take you from "Twist and Shout" to "Blackbird".

Lee has performed and recorded as a singer-songwriter-guitarist since 2001, including hundreds of performances in the New Orleans area, ten years of performances at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and appearances at acoustic venues across the USA.

Lee has a very laid back approach that really resonated with my 12 yr old daughter in learning guitar and helped gain confidence enough to sing while she played. Lee has lots of experience with different styles and shares her her knowledge beyond the basics at every lesson!

Spencer's amazing
John
Spence is a great teacher who’s taught for many years.I have been with Spence for a year. I am 71 years old and was unsure I could start at this age. He is a calm and encouraging teacher with infinite knowledge and teaching skills. Under his guidance I am playing songs, transposing basic keys, strumming, and getting into a little bit of music theory, something that was completely foreign to me. He is the kind of instructor that makes you eager to practice and to show him what you have accomplished In between lessons. I had the chance to watch him perform in one of his two groups, and he does all the fancy riffs. Finding Spence has made my guitar playing a great new adventure!
Jesse Wolf
Spencer worked hard with me to become a better player on acoustic, electric guitar and bass guitar. From music theory to ear training he did it all. I would not be the musician I am today without his help. Knowledgeable in every form of music, jazz to heavy metal, to reading sheet music and tabs. He’s also just super friendly and easy to work with. Became a good friend too!

"I've been taking acoustic guitar lessons with Jimmy for a year and a half. When I started with Jimmy, I had no music theory background... none. I know I still have a lot more to learn, but now I am familiar with concepts including modes, constructing the diatonic major scale, sharps and flats, the circle of fourths and fifths... the list goes on. Jimmy has even guided me through transposing a chord progression. I could go on, but to summarize, because of Jimmy's teaching style, willingness to answer questions, and music knowledge, I now know a lot about how music works. :-)"

"I've had a great time learning with Lena. She's very nice and extremely patient. She mixes music theory with hands-on practice during each lesson. I was playing music (terribly) with her by the end of the first lesson. Every lesson I've walked away with enough information to keep me hungry to learn more."

"I just started my second year of guitar lessons with Peter and I’m learning so much! Peter is a great teacher who is patient, encouraging and a great listener. He can “hear” the areas that I need to work on, and is able to clearly communicate ways for me to improve . He has helped me get better at my rhythm, my strumming, tempo and even an introduction to music theory. I’m now playing (and singing) some of my favorite songs! Highly recommend!"
