Acoustic Guitar:
Acoustic guitar is such a great instrument for so many reasons. With my method, not only will the student learn the songs and styles they love, but they will become musicians while doing it.
So many guitarists feel limited, because they never learned the basics of notes, chords, technique, and theory. I will unlock the fingerboard and make learning music fun! Student will bring in songs they like to learn.

About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

As a teacher, I work to ensure your experience is educational and fun. I use a straightforward approach to teaching theory and technique, with a three-part lesson plan adapting to your skill level and interest:

1 Proficiencies: Playing scales, arpeggios, chords, chord inversions, chords with bass lines, chord melody chord progressions, techniques, basic music theory, and more.

2 Reading: Identifying single notes in all positions, reading chord symbols, and reading chords and melody together. Reading rhythms.

3 Song Repertoire: Learning and appreciating songs, understanding the theory used in the song development, incorporating emotions and dynamics into the song, and learning how to apply learned proficiencies to master the songs and add personal improvisational touches to the songs.

Each student is monitored with a checklist that follows the three categories so we can identify strengths and weaknesses as students progress through different musical styles. The checklists help ...

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hi there. I'm Andrew. I have been teaching for about 10 years now and it has become one of the things I truly love to do. When I am not writing, reading, gigging, touring, or recording, I love to teach people the things that have made my life so colorful.

With a little push in the right direction, you can become an active participant in the things you love. No more watching from the sidelines. Become the musician, writer, speaker, reader that you have always wanted to be. It's never too late! Trying something new or asking for help can be intimidating, but I am happy to show you that the rewards far exceed the costs. Trust me, I speak from experience. I've taught personalized lessons for nearly 10 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played everything from small dive bars to music festivals with crowds of thousands and been on tour and lived the whole life more ...

About Andrew

I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 10 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopp

It's also a very useful in hearing myself recorded so I can play it back and see where I can improve. Jimmy is a great guy and a true professional. I would highly recommend taking lessons with him."

"Theresa is most excellent. There's no question that she knows music and is an accomplished musician, but the real trick is being able to share that talent with a saugsage-fingered doob such as myself.

She has an innate style of instruction that is at once comforting and challenging,setting the bar ever higher while giving enough encouragement that you want to do better. My highest recommendation."
