Blues Guitar:
There are so many styles of blues to choose from and in our class we will touch on the ones that especially interest the student.
Starting with the basics (learning notes, chords, rhythms, techniques and scales) we will also be learning different picking and strumming techniques, playing slide, learning songs and soloing.

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.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
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!!

The most valuable thing I learned as a student and a teacher is that the learning process is worth infinitely more than the song or the chord the student was actually learning. I will almost never give a student the answer, because if we work together to find that answer, the student feels like they earned it, they have learned skills that will help them in all future things that they learned, and they also are much more likely to remember what they have just discovered. Spending time building a chord or transcribing a song together from scratch is infinitely more valuable than handing a student a list of things to memorize. Music is such a deeply rich and complex thing that absolutely everyone can experience, do and love, and I want to help everyone to that point.

About Sam

I started playing guitar when I was 7 and loved it. A couple years after that I started playing in bands, and a couple years after that I started writing music. I've done music programs and studied guitar at Interlochen Center for the Arts and Berklee School of Music. In the summer of 2019 I worked

we’ll also work on:
-Learning songs
-Hearing and analyzing lines and harmony changes

For the last thirty years, from the day that I got my first electric as a teenager, to my work today as an acoustic guitarist for the band, Timberwood, and currently as a teacher of more than forty students a week, my life has been devoted to the guitar. I'm an experienced veteran of the metal

"Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!"

"There's guitar teachers and then there's William! Being a classical guitar player himself, he is meticulous and precise when it comes to his instruction. He is exceptional in teaching students how to play guitar the correct way. He formulates his lessons to be student specific, and keeps record of the students progress. With William, you will learn how to crawl before you learn how to run, and you will learn it the right way, and will be a better musician because of his instruction and dedication to his students, which is the backbone to his dedication to music."

"One lesson in and I can tell Mel is the perfect instructor for me. I have been playing the guitar for about 2 years now with no formal instruction. Mel quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses, and immediately gave me practice drills to help correct bad fingering habits I had developed over the course of my self teaching. Furthermore, after only one lesson, it is very apparent Mel knows where I want to go with my playing and already has a plan to help me get there. I can't tell you how excited I am to have Mel as my online guitar teacher.

"Very patient and informative. Allowed me to ask endless questions. Addressed all my concerns and removed any doubt about this arrangement working specifically for me and my schedule. His studio has a very nice setup and it's simplified. We did a breakdown of my experience and focused on setting realistic goals towards my learning process. More than a "Teacher" of music but a "Professor" of guitar methods! He focused in on getting me comfortable with the most basic of finger techniques, finger placement and familiarized with the sections of the solo lead guitar. After an hour's session my mind was put at ease about my ability to be patient with myself. I was never made to feel awkward or out of my league. This caused me to open up and to really focus. Mr.Cole has a great style and passion towards helping me to soak in as much content as possible. His location is within a community that's family orientated. I look forward to being tutored by Mr.Cole over the course of the next year without any complications."

I have always been afraid of the guitar but the man has cured my guitar phobia. He has made learning the guitar approachable and fun!!"

"I chose to take up the guitar later in life (after retirement). I did not read music nor did I feel that I had any rhythm. William was extremely patient with me and brought me to levels that far exceeded my expectations. William has a rare ability to be able to put a person at ease and reduce their tension level. Sometimes it was through playing and sometimes through playing. He was able to read my apprehension level very well and seemed to always choose the correct method. I moved away from the area and thus far have not found a guitar teacher with the same abilities. Regardless of age or ability, I would recommend William to anyone. Were it not so expensive I would gladly fly back to Phoenix once a week to continue my lessons with William."
