Open and individualized lessons will teach each student in a unique fashion to fit them best. Chords, theory and musical reading will be the main focus of these lessons. My individualized approach works well for many students so that they learn what they want, how they want, and see the results that they specifically are looking for.

Students can expect to learn anything from basic chords to advanced theory and improvisational techniques on their instrument.

As a college graduate with an emphasis in guitar i feel that my mastery over the instrument and ability to teach is is second to none in the area. I feel equally confident in my mastery over acoustic guitar and electric guitar although acoustic guitar is my preferred instrument to teach. As a professional gigging blues/rock/indy musician I have toured while playing all forms of acoustic and rock genres and venues, from jazz to country to blues to classic rock. I can teach you any genre of music or method of guitar playing ...

I have 20 years of music experience, and 15+ with guitar. My goal is to tailor my lessons towards your desires - whether that be to learn music theory fundamentals, or just be able to play your favorite songs. I'll organize our lessons to achieve whatever these goals are.
One of my top priorities in teaching music is to keep you from getting bored. My hope is that very early on, we'll start working on songs that you are interested in playing, even if we need to simplify them a bit to get started. I find that if you can play what you love early on, then your interest in working hard to improve will persist!
I am also available to teach mandolin lessons, in addition to guitar.

About Alexander

I'm excited to start working with students interested in exploring music and guitar (or mandolin!)! Nothing brings greater joy to me than music, so I hope to help others achieve that same experience of getting to recreate the music that you love, or perhaps create your own. My teaching pulls from

Alicia has been a great vocal coach. She is knowledgeable about music and always takes the time to explain why we do the exercises we do. She adapts lessons based on things that I told her I wanted to try. Then, she encourages me to keep going!

Online Guitar Teacher

When it comes to teaching, I place importance on the fundamentals of playing and writing while encouraging each student's personal musical interests. Learning to read and write music with an understanding of theory are important skills to gain when studying an instrument. After developing that foundation, I like to show my students how to push beyond the traditional rules of theory and writing through experimentation.

About Dominic

I started studying music in the fourth grade when I played clarinet in the school band. A couple years later, I began playing guitar and developing my musical identity by teaching myself to play songs by Nirvana, The Beatles, Green Day, and Hendrix. In high school, I took part in a yearly Rock 'n'

Pros & Cons of Ovation Guitars

Ovation guitars are some of the most unique acoustic-electrics on the market. Designed by engineer Charles Kaman, who had previously worked designing helicopters, Ovations are hybrid guitars with a number of unconventional features, including shallow plastic backs, a built-in preamp, and (on some models) multiple soundholes. For this reason, they can be extremely polarizing. Guitarists tend to either love or hate them. Here are five reasons an Ovation guitar might be just the right thing for you …
