From my lessons the student should expect solid knowledge, fun time with the instrument and great teacher.

About Albino

Albino was born in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, a country in southern Africa known for its rich musical and cultural heritage. Fueled by the resourcefulness and determination that have always characterized Mozambicans, he built his first guitar at 16 from a 5-liter can of oil, scrap wood, and

I recently began singing again after a year and was very unconfident in my voice and my ability to improve. Albino was the perfect instructor for someone like me because of his patience and positivity. He was able to point out issues with my singing technique or provide feedback in a very positive way, without seeming critical. Whenever I was confused about something, he would work with me non-stop until I understood. Albino inspires confidence in all his students, and I highly recommend him as a teacher!

I'm into recording and composition using simple apps - students will immediately learn fun sources for loops and ways to level themselves up by learning exercises and how they relate to their own recorded creations. By taking useful tools and making them available round the clock on a phone as well as handwritten notes during a class, students will explore midi, home recording skills, and flexibly learn a vast spread of cool handheld functions.

About Spencer

I'm so excited to get into music with the amazing spread of people out here! It's fairly daunting to take up a new skill, so I'd like to say that we're going to find a path that keeps interest and skill levels up. You are not required to suffer. Using several fun (and, importantly, very free) apps

Chris grew up hearing his dad play guitar around the house and at live shows. He “caught the bug” around age 13 and hasn’t stopped playing since! He’s been teaching guitar since 2003 and received his Bachelor of Arts in Music at North Central University in 2008 where he studied jazz, blues, rock, classical, songwriting, and church music. He’s taught about two dozen lessons a week for the better part of 10 years; from age 8 to retiree, beginner to advanced, hobbyist to college-prep or gig-ready. He specializes in blues, rock, improvisation, ‚Äčand songwriting. What he loves most about teaching is being able to pass on everything he has learned and continues to learn in his 20+ years as a musician, helping students take step after step to achieve their musical goals. As an active musician, Chris has been the lead singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist for a local rock band and has performed/recorded as the lead guitarist for a number of other bands/artists. He currently plays lead guitar for ...

My 15 year-old son started guitar this summer. He has truly enjoyed working with Chris. Chris is patient and encouraging, as well as being a cool guy that my son looks up to.
Helen
My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Brian
Our kids have loved working with Chris. He picks songs they're excited to play, teaches them patiently, and has a lot of fun with them. They've made a ton of progress since they started with Chris, and they're always excited to see him!

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Starting on violin 15 years ago, my journey through musicianship has been thorough and enriching. I have made a point from day one to understand all forms of music from several angles, from the intuitive "natural" approach, to the more theoretical, all the way to understanding the physics of sound and sound cognition. While this many angled approach came purely from my passion for music, 6 years ago when I started teaching it became my most valuable tool.
As a teacher, I use my wide and multifaceted understanding to best craft lessons to serve your learning style to learn whatever it is you want to learn!
Teaching from my personal studio also provides me with the advantage of being able to make professional quality play along tools in real time, which you will then have access to after your lesson, boosting your personal practice time in a way that suits you!

About Chase

Hello! I am an experienced guitar and bass player, with extensive recording and performance history. In the 15 years I've played guitar, I have been teaching for the last 6 and it is one of my favorite outlets of music. I absolutely love sharing my craft and finding what it takes to get a student

Chase's compassion for the arts is contagious. My son learned so much from Chase over the last year both in person and digitally when the virus shut everything down. His ability to transition in difficult times is amazing. If you are looking for passion, patience, and raw talent, he is a perfect match!
Kate
My son loves his weekly lessons with Chase! Chase has been fantastic and is always willing to listen to what my son wants to learn and incorporate it into his lessons. I can not recommend him enough!
Sheila
Chase is an amazing music teacher. He tailors lessons to each individual student to enhance their learning based on their skills. Over the course of 2 years he taught my son who had no experience in bass guitar, how to play and helped him perform in multiple rock band groups. Above all, he is patient, kind and truly enjoys teaching.

"Will is a fantastic teacher!

I came in with a lot of bad habits built up by trying to teach myself how to play the guitar out of books, and a lot of shyness and embarrassment on top of that. Will patiently corrected my habits, drew me out, and directed our lessons at exactly the kind of music I wanted to play, despite the fact that initially it was *way* out of my league. And he doesn't let me get lazy, either, now that I'm getting better - every song is a new challenge."

"I should note first that Calvin is teaching my 13-year-old son both piano and guitar (electric and acoustic) and has been for nearly two years now. Calvin is an excellent instructor and really inspires my son to try harder to improve his skills on all three instruments. He is patient, but has high expectations and he supports and encourages by sharing his own stories of his life in music and how he has had to work to perfect a skill or overcome a difficulty. He challenges my son just above his ability level so it is not stressful, but it isn't easy either. Calvin is great at helping students develop expression so the piece sounds really good, while also encouraging the student to add his own style, when it is appropriate. Calvin is flexible and communicative. We home school and he is very kind in helping us come up with a manageable schedule. We are so grateful for Calvin and his sharing the gift of music with our family. I recommend him without reservation."

"I’m a peer of Matt’s. Matt is very knowledgeable about all things guitar. He specializes in heavy metal and harmonic minor lead guitar, but can show you much more than just that. I’ve seen Matt use alternate tunings like Led Zepelin or Rolling Stones do to create something completely different sounding than standard tuning. I substitute for him on occasion, and his students are on a method book and a song to play each week. Students showed me what they were working on, and it appeared Matt wrote out every song the student was interested in week to week. From my experience as a teacher, this helps the student stay motivated to play and continue their practicing/studies if they genuinely like the song they are working on."

As someone starting acoustic guitar in their mid-twenties, I wasn't sure what to expect going into lessons at a late age. But Lena was open and welcoming! She is also patient and so encouraging! She always makes me feel like I'm making progress no matter how small the improvement is."
