Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hello fellow music lover!

My name is Scott, and I'm a musician with 15+ years of performance experience. I've studied guitar performance at Berklee College of Music and performed in various configurations from funk/soul ensembles, to folk-rock bands and I write my own music that I perform as a solo artist.

I love teaching because it allows me to share my love of music and help people grow creatively in the direction of their choice. My feeling is, if you're choosing to invest in your artistic development, it should be an enjoyable experience based around what you're interested in learning about. To that end, all of my lessons are customized to the tastes and preferences of each student. We'll identify the goals you'd like to work towards, the music you want to play and take concrete steps in line with your creative vision.

My areas of expertise include folk, blues, rock, soul, funk and pop music with particular interests in songwriting and improvisation. However, I'm ...

Great instructor with the knowledge to teach superbly, with the insight to reach high levels of efficiency!
Dan
Scott is a patient and supportive teacher. He helped me tap into my musical intuition while also supporting a practical understanding of music theory. Working with Scott felt like having a mentor, rather a teacher, to support me on my musical journey.
Kelly
Scott taught me introductory drums. Scott is warm, funny, and adaptable - he made learning fun and easy for me. I didn't feel dumb when I made mistakes, in no small part because Scott was very encouraging and pointed out the things I was doing well!

Another reason to take lessons with Scott - he's incredibly talented and plays multiple instruments. For example, I wanted to practice playing drums in a "band" setting, so Scott grabbed an electric bass and we started jamming.

10/10 would recommend, especially if you like laughing a lot while you learn a new skill!

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!

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Learning any instrument comes with it’s own set of building blocks, and guitar is a great one to start with! In our early lessons, we’ll break down music standards and basics so your knowledge can relate to any other types of music you get into! Then we’ll look and genres you enjoy and learn what makes those genres and sounds so specific. Once you understand the building blocks of music and how to translate it to your instrument, we can start to work on how your creativity and style can take over!

About Kai

I’ve been performing on stage since I was in grade school, and I believe the fine and performing arts are essential to growing expressively. I’ve tutored all ages and levels in learning new skills, and the process may be tedious, but it doesn’t have to be boring! From rehearsal and memorization tri

"My son is 8 and has been seeing Jordan for several weeks. Jordan started out by clapping out music, learning about pitch and timing etc instead of putting a guitar in my sons hand on day one and overwhelming him. My son left Jordan today and on the way home excitedly told me “I love seeing Jordan, my confidence grows every time I see him.” Those were his own words! Tomorrow we are purchasing him a real guitar and I see him being a great student because of Jordan’s patience and introduction to music the right way! Jordan began at the foundation and I feel has set the stage for great things for my son. Wonderful teacher!!"

"First off, I am a complete beginner. I have never played an acoustic guitar and only started to playing the bass the end of last year. I have tried on my own for about a month and decided I need some professional help. I just needed an instructor who could guide me and answer my constant questions rather than having to look up instructions online. Jordan is worth the time and money just having someone who can easily answer my questions or instruct me on what I am doing wrong. After the first month, I can see a lot of improvement from when I first started the online lessons. Jordan is very patient and knows his stuff. These types of lessons and also Jordan's enthusiasm motivates me to keep going when normally I would not try as hard when learning on my own. I am very happy with my instructor and online lessons. I would recommend Jordan for those who are interested in playing guitar."

"Tim is awesome, he is spiritually a great person, to have as a teacher and mentor. he is very patient. If you don't understand the lesson, just don't get frustrated, let him know, and he'll go over it again in different way that you will understand him. believe me I was worried at first that I didn't speaking in guitar terms or language and which I don't have any knowledge. Tim made it easy for me to understand, and I am learning at a pace that I feel very comfortable. Amen to that."

"Jordan is one of the finest musicians I've met. He is one of the most patient and humble teachers I've met. His slots book fast though, so if he has a slot for a new student, jump on it! This guy will never take advantage of you, and is always understanding when I've had stuff come up. He really treats everyone with over-the-top kindness and never equivocates on that principle. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"
