Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I am a Brazilian guitar player who started by playing blues and rock on the electric guitar, and then moved into Samba, Bossa Nova and fingerstyle on the nylon-string guitar. Today, I play mostly Latin styles and a little bit of Flamenco. I also have a year of conservatory training under my belt, as well as a background in West African percussion, and culminate all of these styles together as a composer.

As a teacher, I cater to your aptitude and your goals and make sure that you are having fun while you grow. That means learning actual repertoire of music that you want to study. Some students want more music theory than others: and that's totally fine! But I like to always have a song as a context to study that theory. Afterall, we want to use theory to actually make music!

About Tomas

My name is Tomas. I am a Brazilian-American polyglot musician and language instructor. I play music and teach English/Portuguese for a living, and have been doing so for the past 7 years! I also learned Spanish and French through music, so I know a lot about those languages and the styles of music

First thing I do before first day of class is send out a welcoming greeting via email and call a few days before first lesson. We Briefly discuss and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class. Music lessons include: warm ups, exercises, technical and theory work, solfeggio (sight-singing), ear training, repertoire musical coaching, composition writing, preparation for performances and more.

From sitting around the fire strumming chords to singer songwriter looking for a label the acoustic guitar can get you there and I can help you make that a successful journey.

Basic Chords, Rhythm Techniques, Intermediate Chords, Blues, Folk, Adult Contemporary, Country and Pop.

Artists like Jason Mraz, Green Day, Taylor Swift, the Eagles, Johnny Cash, the Who, Pink Floyd and more are great to play on the acoustic guitar. I have the techniques to get you those sounds.

I also teach songwriting, so if you aren't the type to play other people songs and want to write some of your own I have an extensive background to help get you on the road to accomplishing your goals.

Kyle is an excellent teacher. My son learned so much from him and loves his lessons. He is very knowledgeable, patient and kind.
John
Kyle K has a unique teaching style. His Ableton Live knowledge has no bounds. In just five lessons he talked me through most of my usual brain-fog to help me understand, in the simplest terms, how to use Live to record music and use Midi to enhance your work. Super, Super man, Kyle is. I highly recommend Kyle if you need a teacher. John G.

Kyle employs an interactive teaching style that a total beginner like me needs to begin to understand how Ableton works.

"I took lessons from Greg for guitar some years ago and his methods really helped me understand music with the way he taught chord theory and such. It applied to literally every instrument I learned afterwards.

Greg also has a plenty of patience for his students and is really good at encouraging growth and understanding in his students. Sometimes I would come in with a song I wanted to learn that was way more advanced than I was at the time, but rather than say I couldn't play it or to wait until later, he would take that difficult song and help break it down into what I did know and we'd go from there and as I result I felt I learned quickly, as well as understood how to break down songs into their more basic elements which would become later on for when I wrote my own music or lead in bands.

All in all a great experience and I feel like I owe a lot of my musical ability to the lessons I took with Greg."

"Started with Jim Back in Feb 2015...Im in my 50's and didn't have a clue, my girl gave me a guitar for Christmas and new it was on my bucket list to learn, and learn I did with Jim. Patience and clear, no pressure lessons are what I got. All I wanted to do is sit in my yard and play something that sounded like something, lol.... I am slowly getting better and better as long as I keep to my practice and Jim is always there to help even when I am not in class so to speak. He answers you phone calls and texts if u have questions or forgot something, even sends videos if u need it... Glad I got on board with this guy and I am hoping for more and more enjoyment from my instrument...Give him a shot, I did and pretty sure you wont be disappointed"
