Lead and Rhythm Guitar:

I've developed a step-by-step approach to learning to solo and improvise.
Using simple, "guitarist-friendly” techniques you will quickly learn and begin to apply major/minor scales/modes, blues/pentatonic scales and “licks.” You will learn triads, arpeggios, interval studies, and extensions and how to use them to create interesting and melodic solos. With my line development/phrasing techniques, you will have your own library of “licks” that will help you navigate both simple and sophisticated harmonic progressions. I will help you to become a become a well-rounded, three-dimensional guitarist with a unique voice!

A few of techniques I teach:

∙ triads / arpeggios
∙ strumming
∙ alternate/sweep picking
∙ tremolo picking
∙ hybrid picking
∙ scales/modes
∙ slide guitar
∙ hammer on/pull off
∙ (up to 8 finger) tapping
∙ bending / double stops / unison bends
∙ whammy bar techniques
∙ diagonal scales,
∙ arpeggios & note groupings
∙ 3 and 4 finger per string scales
∙ fingerstyle
∙ Jazz scales, chords including
4 note open/closed voicing
7th, 9th, 11th, 13th chords
∙ chord melodies
∙ rhythm and grooves of various styles

Bass Guitar:

Right hand:
∙ finger style, pick
∙ slapping/popping
∙ groove, rhythms and playing time
∙ time signatures, walking bass lines,
∙ arpeggios, double stops,
∙ chords & improvising
∙ writing bass lines.

All of my students learn:

Sight reading (standard notation/tablature)
∙ music theory & ear training
∙ rhythm / timing (including reading rhythms)
∙ composition/songwriting

We will focus 1/2 of the lesson on repertoire and 1/2 the lesson on technique. Many of my students text/email me a few days prior to our scheduled lesson with a song selection for the week. I focus our lesson's technical study with the song in mind. It has proven to be very effective and makes the technique and theory are less "boring."

Studio Equipment
I have (7) guitars: including (4) electric, (2) acoustic/electric, & (3) electric bass
(2) tube guitar amplifiers, and various guitar effects pedals.

(1) full-size 88-key MIDI keyboard, (1) 61-key USB keyboard controller, and (1) Arturia MINILAB MIDI controller.

Also, I have an assortment of industry standard dynamic & condenser microphones for live performance and recording applications.

DAW recording software (Pro Tools 12.x, Logic 10.x, Ableton Live)
software synthesizers by Arturia, Fabfilter, Native Instruments, Spectrasonics, Steven Slate, Toontrack and more. I use plugin effects by Izotope, Fabfilter, Plugin Alliance and Universal Audio and Waves for many of my lessons and recording projects.

Travel Equipment
I can provide a guitar, videos, music recording, music workbooks and everything else a student may need. Students are only expected to bring a desire to learn. :)

Specialties

I am a performer with a ton of touring/stage experience, a composer who understands the art of writing and a producer who is fluent in the latest recording technology. In addition to technical studies, my students receive performance coaching/career development. I will help you to find your unique voice, a polished and distinct sound, and your true personality as an artist. I am 100% committed to making you a success!

I will ignite a new, or recharge/rekindle your passion for music, and to sing/play the music you love a lot better!

Eric is a great singing instructor! He's doing a great job tailoring the lessons to fit my skill level and goals as an amateur learning basic technique. For the first few lessons, he took the time to understand my voice, taught me exercises to learn how to better control my voice, and helped me practice singing some of my favorite (pop) songs. I feel like my voice and understanding of singing has improved significantly in even just a handful of lessons. Eric is also very patient and encouraging, which has given me a lot more confidence in enjoying my hobby to its fullest extent!

My voice is in the best shape it's ever been and I sound better than I ever have! I've been with Eric for years and have continued to get better the entire time. I come from a choral, liturgical signing background, so he's helped me with placement, chest voice, and pronunciation for pop, rock, country, and other genres. I highly recommend!

I thought I'd be able to teach myself the ukulele, but there is so many nuances to the process that I had missed. I like the way Remi corrected bad habits immediately and the way he simplified chord changes. Really looking forward to practicing some specific items this week and to my next lesson.

Hello There!

My teaching method molds to the necessities and interests of my students, but in general lessons have a theory section followed up by a practice lesson.

At the end of the day my main goal is to teach you how to play what you want to play, providing you with the knowledge you'll need to advance on your own time. Always in a fun, dynamic way.

About Marco
Are we ready to rock?

Hello there!

My name is Marco, I'm an international musician and producer engineer with more than 10 years of experience playing guitar and a degree in Music Production from the University of New Haven.

My guitar students can expect to see improvement in their technique and musical affinities starting lesson one. I always like to prepare my lessons according to my student's interest, since everybody is different there is more than one method to learn how to play an instrument.

I also welcome those who wish to become proficient in the craft of music production, or even take your first steps in this amazing art form. I can teach you the fundamentals of recording and producing your own music, as well as insight to "tips and tricks" the pros use.

Finally and most importantly, my relationship with students
will be a two way street so I can learn from you guys as much as you do from me.

DISCLAIMER!

Having fun is a must! after all we are talking music here

I have been a guitarist for the past 5 years, becoming well versed in Rock, Funk, Blues, Jazz, Indie, pop, disco, country, and folk styles. I also offer the tools to students to not only learn the material I present to them well but also be able to teach themself through the use of ear training and exposure to many different types of musical situations. This will allow an outlet for the student to not only be playing the songs they’re learning(good way to keep the student Interested) but also gives them exsposure to real life playing situations! I also cater to the tastes of the student and will help them learn the styles they are interested in as well as exposing them to new types of music.

About Shane
I am a 19 year old guitarist in the South coast area, who is very dedicated to spreading the knowledge I have obtained through multiple different teachers through the past 5 years Ive been studying. I have a lot to offer musically but only wish to nurture the students growth to allow them to realize their potential may go far beyond what they had originally thought. I hope to help many students on this website delve into the realm of guitar!

I have a great understanding of where to start with brand new students that makes it easy, fun and gives them a big win and success with even the first lesson.

I have studied with many guitar teachers including Jazz Fusionist Alex Machacek. I teach basic music theory and specialize in shred guitar technique. I teach proper practice to learn any style and any song comfortably and quickly. I'm also super easy going and patient with all of my students. Taking extra time and care to understand them and what they want to accomplish, while guiding them bit by bit to achieving their goals with guitar.

About Dakota
I am excellent at explaining ideas very clearly to my students.

I also have a lot of patience with my students and know where to go with each individual student to give them a big success in every lesson.

I pride myself in teaching students to express themselves with their music and the songs they learn. Expression is one of the most enjoyable parts of music.

A little about me:

I worked for the famous composer David Campbell from 2016-2018 and have been in almost every major recording studio in LA, including Capitol studios, Eastwest studios and Oceanway studios. I've had the great pleasure of working with mega producers Rob Cavallo, Nigel Godrich and more.

I know what it takes to be a great guitarist for personal satisfaction and professionally.

I hope to meet and work with you on your own goals with guitar. I'm certai
n I can help you immensely!
