Private Guitar Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

I had to switch the lesson to in-home roughly 3 hours before the scheduled lesson. David was great and accommodating. He gave me a crash course on scales, which I didn't know anything about, and explained them so that I actually started to understand.
Samantha Gordon
My first lesson with David was excellent! He is very patient and knowledgeable. I now have extremely high expectations for learning to play the guitar. I highly recommend him. He gave me a thorough explanation about how guitars are made made, the parts, we tuned the guitar and I am ready to groove!

I was mostly self taught. Taking off after my first couple of lessons. Now I’ve been playing guitar and ukulele for about 8 years. I believe that anyone can learn and that everyone will eventually find their own personal style, but I’ll take the time to help you mold that style. I have the patience to teach properly, and I care that you learn. Teaching excites me! Give me a challenge. I can teach both kids and adults

About Reymar

I took guitar classes, but learned most of what I know from peers, YouTube, and myself. I’m a performer, singer/songwriter, producer, and teacher. I taught private lessons for a few of my teachers and their family members when I was in high school. I’d say my personality is pretty goofy, but I like

Once we learn how to read, nothing can stop us from playing! After that it all depends on what you want to do with your guitar. Classical guitar is a gate to all music genres and music theory will definitely bring your level higher + it gives you confidence.
-Also as a performance major musician, I have the ability to play the techniques I teach and simply explain how it is done in today's guitar world.

Online Guitar Teacher

I am a state-licensed music teacher who teaches full-time, but I understand that the only way anyone will learn and stick with an instrument is by learning what THEY want to play. I don’t like prescribing a lot of unfamiliar practice songs; rather, I like to learn why you want to play, what music you listen to, and pick songs that are just tough enough to push you.

And I mean it: I’m down for whatever music you like. In addition to my tastes in classical music, pop/rock, etc I also record vocals for video game soundtracks. Weird, right? But that’s what’s fun for me, and I want to find out how to teach you guitar while making it fun for you.

About Daniel

I love teaching and using humor to make learning fun. I like a lot of different styles of music, with a special love for blues, jazz, rock, and video game music. I've been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, the piano for nearly 15 years, and I've been singing since high school. I taught mys

3 Beautiful Fingerpicking Patterns for Acoustic Guitar | TakeLessons

Looking to bring a deeper dimension to your acoustic guitar playing? Guitar teacher Jerry W. shares three simple fingerpicking patterns you can use to start making more rich and beautiful music today. Many guitar players focus only on strumming patterns or guitar solo licks and miss out on the beauty of fingerpicking. Becoming a well-rounded guitar player means building up skills in both hands — not just your fretting hand — and basic fingerpicking skills are a must for many guitar st …
