I enjoy most of all the back and forth between teacher and student and working together. A good teacher learns alot from his students as well as through teaching. There is no end to learning.

I am very flexible as far as location is concerned. I can travel to you. I am also highly proficient in online learning and can teach and convey concepts from anywhere.

I am also very active in the New Orleans music community and regularly play out in town and on tour. I have a wealth of knowledge about music business and how to be a professional musician.

Guitar is my main squeeze. I love to help people enjoy the instrument as much as I do. learn to shred a rock solo, fingerpick a folk song, or transcribe miles davis. learn to play what you hear on records without resorting to you tube instructional videos (wink). or if you are already an accomplished musician, enhance your ability to employ techniques like chord weaving on the guitar, craft better solos, write more sophisticated chord progressions, etc

I have been teaching private piano, violin, guitar, and ukulele lessons for ten years. I won competitions, hundreds of dollars, and a scholarship through the Desert Valley Music Teacher Association (DVMTA). I have written and self-published two piano books with more in the works. I have worked on a Music Theory degree at MCC and plan to transfer to ASU to finish my bachelor's. I help students find the fun in music again with many involved music games and incentive programs. I instill a love and confidence in students of composing their own music from a young age.

Aloha! I am a student from Hawaii! Wow, my words are not enough to express how awesome Jeremy is as a teacher. What a wonderful person he is, he is so friendly and patient. It is extremely difficult for me to learn anything but he make it super easy. It’s also really cool that he has an online option so I can learn anywhere. I must say, I am very proud of myself and how much I’ve accomplished through his teachings. I highly recommend Jeremy and you will not regret it! Amazing teacher and I am grateful. Thank you Jeremy and please don’t ever stop teaching! Mahalo!

"I took beginner's guitar lessons with Alex. He took into account what my playing goals were, stylewise and whatnot. He's super knowledgeable on musical subjects besides just guitar. I've come away feeling that I have good foundational knowledge to build upon as I progress in my playing. I had the five lesson package, which I felt suited my needs. Tip: If you do something like that, space out your lessons at least every other week, so that you have time to practice and grasp what you're learning. Be sure to ask questions if something is new to you, especially if you're a beginner. I highly recommend guitar lessons from Alex!"

I am 20, and I have been taking lessons with tony for almost 4 month. He really is a great teacher. He really makes guitar easy to learn and always give you confidence about learning new things. He is cool and nice, able to get you through all kinds of difficulties of learning guitar. Give hime a shot, if you really want to play guitar. He is better than any Youtube or on-line stuff."

"I have taken one lesson so far with James, with many more to come hopefully. James has been nothing but motivational to get my guitar and singing to the next level. It seems he truly wants to see each and every one of his students succeed and believes that if we tell ourselves that we're the best, that we might just become the best. I am extremely optimistic that my playing is going to dramatically improve from James' lessons as after only one lesson I have learned more than I have self teaching myself over the past year!

I am really looking forward to my next lesson...James is great to work with. Very personable, and a very nice guy. Can't wait till Tuesday!"
