Jared is an excellent teacher. I am 62 and took lessons from Jared for about 6 months. He individualizes his lessons, he is very knowledgeable in every aspect of music. He communicates and gives as much or as little information as you desire. We also covered a lot of theory as part of the lessons which I enjoyed.

He has a nice manor and is respectful.
I recommend him highly.

Very patient and thorough

Tom is a great teacher! He takes his time to get to know the level of the student. This was my son's (8y.o.) first guitar experience, and he did a great job with starting with the basics. I appreciated how he focuses on form and posture too.
Richard W. New Albany, IN

Perfect for students just getting started on their instrument. Since I personally am a fan of a very eclectic mix of different musical genres I can help you learn guitar no matter what musical style you like.

About Richard

I picked up the guitar 13 years ago and have always had a big passion for teaching. I switched my specialty to bass after three years and have taken it farther than I thought I ever could. In addition to the passion I have for playing my passion for teaching has never been stronger. Bass being my specialty, I teach everyone from beginner to master. Specialize in advanced techniques like pop-snap, harmonics and two hand tapping. For both guitar and bass I base all of my lessons on music theory and use that as a foundation for learning and understanding all music.

Tyrel K. Louisville, KY

About Tyrel

I am best suited to help those who are new to guitar and are looking to get started in the right direction. Navigating the world of solo instruction is tough, as I know myself, but with a little simple guidance the road is a little more clear and easier to traverse. I am no guitar virtuoso but am more than capable of teaching beginners everything they need to know to get started. Personally, I feel this is an advantage to any potential students. My ego is checked at the door because I have no ego. I'm easier to approach with questions or concerns that you might feel are "dumb" (their not!) than a complete guitar know-it-all who enjoys demonstrating his awesome sweeping technique or that he/she can play Eruption in their sleep on a regular basis (which I always found extremely ...

About Benjamin

Hello to all future students! My name is Benjamin, I am a guitar teacher, and have been fascinated with learning and teaching for several years. I have been playing guitar for 11 years, and relatively new to teaching. I'm fun and outgoing, and have a lot of knowledge to give. I am currently a student at UofL, in their Computer Information Systems program. I have experience teaching all levels of players, from honing advanced techniques, to teaching the basics. I have helped a handful of students learn to play, from reading tabs, to keeping basic time, to learning techniques such as sweep picking, tapping, and soloing within scales. Though I may be a bit unorthodox in my teaching style, I feel that guitar is an expression of the soul and should be a form of my student's self expression! I ...
