I love teaching music! I have been a professional guitar instructor for over 15 years. Through attentive one on one instruction I develop a program to suit the player's goals. I emphasize technique with drills designed to raise my students' skills evenly across a wide range of categories, like picking, fretting, scale patterns, chord shapes, chord progressions, rhythm training, and ear training. I can guide a complete beginner toward being able to play songs and have fun. For the more serious student I have a plan that will make you a better player and musician guaranteed.

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching String Instruments like Guitar and Violin for Beginners and Intermediate level for many years. My students get to know all the parts of their string instruments like the guitar, from frets to strings, and learn how to tune their own instrument. After that, they will explore the fundamentals of music notation and find out how to produce clear, beautiful notes and chords

Enrolling in this course will take your musical talent to the next level. By the time you're finished, you'll be well on your way to becoming a skilled guitar player.

My 6 year old couldn't stop talking about her first lesson. She was very nervous but the instructor put her at ease and provided constant encouragement.

This has been an amazing process with my God son. He has ADHD and while initially he had some difficulty being focused he is beginning to slow down and is grasping the ability to learn. Wilma is very patient and an excellent instructor. We really approach her.

I highly recommend Mel for fiddle. He had a lot of really good tips and was very willing to find songs that fit the kind of music I wanted to play. Highly recommend!
Ilona
I absolutely love Mel’s lessons and look forward to them every week! I haven’t played seriously in years and have developed some bad bowing habits and difficulty with pitch over time and was close to not playing anymore. After reading the other reviews, I decided to give him a try and am so thankful I did!! My bowing and intonation is improving, he incorporates some music theory appropriate to what we are learning to master the song. I can’t wait to see where I am in 6 months from now! Thank you Mel, my passion for music is returning and am looking forward to my audition in the community orchestra next season!
Hannah
I just started working with Mel and he is awesome! He really listened to my goals and the type of music I am interested in playing and he is planning our lessons based on that. He is very good at explaining things and giving examples. I look forward to our lessons. Highly recommend!

He is incredibly knowledgeable and versatile, welcomes questions, and will take time to explain anything even if it interferes with his planned lesson. He is encouraging and incredibly professional. I leave every lesson ready to try again and encouraged to keep practicing. I highly recommend him as a guitar and music theory instructor."

The 10 Best Guitar Soloists of All Time | Solos and Guitar Tricks

As with any top 10 list, ranking the best guitar soloists is not an easy feat. Guitar solos are incredibly subjective, and what pleases one fan might make someone else plug their ears. My list is based on years of listening to and loving classic rock, indie music, and pop. If there's anyone I left out or anything you would change, I hope you'll let me know in the comments. 10.

5 Reasons My Guitar Might Be My Best Friend

Music can be a very rewarding experience - and a personal one, at that. Most musicians spend a LOT of time with their instrument, often baring their souls in the form of melodies and lyrics. If you treat your guitar like part of the family - or your best friend - you'll relate to what Gresham, OR guitar teacher Ed P. has to say here...   Did you know that some of the old blues players named their guitars?  Some of them were even rumored to sleep with their guitars.  I’m not saying tha …

7 Female Guitarists to Watch in 2015

Whether you spent last year hooked on Taylor Swift's 1989, freaking out about St Vincent, buzzing in the Bey-hive, or feverishly anticipating Sleater-Kinney's reunion, women dominated much of our cultural conversation about music. With International Women's Day coming up this weekend, it's a great time to appreciate the talents and ferocity of these amazing guitar-slinging women! Check out these aweso …
