Hi there! I've been playing guitar since I was a teenager during the '70s. i play and teach rock,blues, jazz, fusion and read and compose music. What you can expect from me is a patient, serious, determined teacher who knows how to convey simple to complex technique and ability to those who are destined to be a student and musician. I can teach how to read, listen, interpret, improvise and evolve many musical skills.

Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!

Great teacher! We were so happy to have found Alex.
Leander
Alex is a terrific instructor, who adjusts lessons based on what the student wants to accomplish. For example, my goals include learning the instruments (baritone uke in octave mandolin tuning and concert uke in mandolin tuning), fingerpicking, playing both melody lines and chords, being able to determine what chords to use without sheet music. So we work on music theory and ear training a lot, as well as learning tunes. Very good instructor who is both flexible and knowledgeable...highly recommend him to others.

I cover guitar basics, theory and technique, but with guitar I like to focus the lessons around songs which the student and/or I choose.

I teach various styles, on acoustic or electric (with or without pedals) Also, if you're a great singer but would like to learn how to play and sing at the same time I can help you with that as well!

"Surreal! A gift for life! Thanks Dave

I am 56 years of age and have always loved music. As a freshman in college in 1974, I enrolled in some music theory classes and began playing guitar. Not one to discipline myself, I learned only some basic chords and a few little things throughout the years. One day I finally said to myself that it was time to "finally learn how to play the guitar." The good thing with respect to my disposition was that not once did I ever think I was too old to learn. It was a year ago on Christmas morning when my wife presented me with a card containing a number of lessons with Take Lessons. I was elated, anxious and excited to begin to learn what I had put off for half of my life. When I first called my instructor, Dave Murray, I knew this was going to be very edifying and very special for me. As a fellow instructor, I've come to realize that it takes a special person to really understand the needs of students and to appropriate a lesson plan that meets both the individual's elementary and progressive needs. Dave has done this marvelously. I can't measure the joy of success I've experienced learning to play with Dave, whom I'm here to tell you, is a tremendous asset to your organization. I was embarrassed somewhat when we began my lessons as I was all thumbs and very clumsy. Dave was incredible as he always applied the correct method that not only instilled my confidence, but allowed me to make sounds I never thought possible. I'm playing things on the guitar today that again, I never, ever thought were possible. Dave has a meticulous method to his instruction where he introduces things, simple or complex, during the tenure of lessons that are a future puzzle piece that logically fits somewhere down the road. I find his method of instruction intriguing and challenging. Again, at 56 years of age, I can honestly say, this is the greatest gift I could ever have bestowed upon myself. I'm never going to be on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine, but thanks to Dave, I'll always have one of the greatest gifts anyone can give themselves - the gift of playing music."

"We love how Lena teaches, she cares about each teaching and makes sure we understand the chords and what kind a of music we will playing. Lena is quickly to respond to any song request we may have even if she is not familiar with the song. Especially if it's in Spanish. She has been the best teacher ever. We have taken classes in her house which is good if you are starting. But now that we understand more of the chords and it's position we do online and it works well."
