I started learning guitar on my own. I got some CD’s. It got me started. However, I wasn’t progressing. I looked for an instructor in my area and Brian Gross came up in my search engine. I was very frustrated at first but Brian assured me it takes time and practice. It’s the little things that he teaches you that makes all the difference. If you listen to what he tells you and apply it you will amazed. Great musician, great teacher.
Grace
Brian is a wonderful, fun, and very supportive guitar teacher. He encourages students like me to practice and learn, and he gives very positive and tailored instruction. He allows his students to choose the style of music that they want to learn, and he offers the easiest and most straightforward way to learn it. He prepares his lessons very well, and it is always a joy to see his cheerful face. Even someone like me who sometimes fumbles around with the strings can feel comfortable in his great manner of teaching. I find that I have learned quite a bit in a very short amount of time, even with my busy work schedule. The guitar exercises that he gives us are fun to do and so effective. I highly recommend him as a guitar teacher, and I look forward to many more lessons with him.

Great instructor who works with your schedule and your technique, excellent lesson plans!

I can't express just how glad I am that I found Lena two years ago when my sons wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Her approach is perfect and makes them love learning and playing. They're also learning how to perform (playing and singing) on-stage, which has so many added benefits, musically and personally. I can't imagine there's a better teacher and experience around.

First lesson. She is organized, has a plan and a process, and it seems still will be able to customize to my specific goals. Great start!

Online Guitar Teacher

I want students to excel the fastest they can on guitar. Though I know it is important to let students learn at their own pace, I will never cease to challenge them through difficult pieces or exercises. I will develop plans and keep track of progress so that students and I can stay organized and ensure the learning is fluent. I will direct lessons based on what the student wants to learn most and what genres of music they are interested in. I also change the structure of lessons based on how the student learns. The basics I want students to learn from my lessons are basic chords, fretboard knowledge and music theory, finger-picking styles, pick and strumming techniques, left-hand techniques, and most importantly I want to teach students how to listen. I will train students ears through ear training exercises and songs. I firmly believe the better the student’s ears can get, the better the musician they can be. Besides just teaching songs, I want students to understand the theory, ...

My son and husband are taking lessons from William. I am so pleased that we have found a true musician., they seem to learn a lot in a few short lessons. My son starts to teach me guitar. His method makes the lesson easy for me to learn. His enthusiasm makes learning fun and 20 minutes lesson tolerable. I start to like my son more! William has changed my boy after only 2 lessons!
leah
William is my first guitar teacher. As daunting as it can be to learn an instrument, he created a comfortable experience for me. He's incredibly talented and his love for music truly shows (which is inspiring). I initially started with the desire to learn jazz and William opened my eyes to explore other genres that integrate with jazz. Im excited to continue to learn and grow with music. I highly recommend anyone at any level to take lessons with William.

Thank you, William!

"One of the problems with musicians these days is a lack of formal training. Cris has spent the last 20+ years perfecting his abilities to teach music. In my opinion, Part of what makes Cris stand out from other instructors is his knowledge and open minded view of different styles of music. A teacher with a diverse musical background is ideal for a student who wants to create a good basis or reach the next level in their abilities. Cris is able to help you learn guitar the right way and set a path that will advance your abilities quicker than most other teachers."

"Dave M. proves you can teach an old dog new tricks

I am a 66 year old retired IT professional that has a passion for guitar playing. During my working years I did not have the time to indulge my desire to learn how to play. After dabbling with self instruction and a few music store instructors these past few years of retirement I finally found a teacher truly committed to his students. I feel like for the first time I am making progress and learning how to play guitar. Dave is enthusiastic and thorough with his lessons and a true professional in his craft. He has instilled me with an infectious desire to move forward and I can't wait for the next lesson to come around. I highly recommend him and his approach to other potential students young or old."

"David pointed out how I was moving incorrectly from one chord to another, I didn't even realize I was doing it. He showed me an exercise to break that bad habit, it is also helping me to move from one chord to another smoothly and easily. I can already tell the difference in just a few days. He explained things in a way, I fully understood. I had a great lesson and cant wait till the next!"

"I have had 3 lessons with Alexander so far and I have 2 more left. I'm still up in the air whether I will continue lessons with him or not. Here's why;

Sustains: Professional and Knowledgeable; Alexander definitely knows what he's talking about. I've noticed major improvements since I've started working with him. Keep in mind, I practice a lot on my own, but Alexander provides you with the tools and materials you need to continue growing in the fastest way possible. He doesn't have a teaching method set in stone. He tailors each lesson to benefit the student based on where he or she is skill-wise. Alexander observes you closely while you play and offers you advice and solutions to specific problems when he notices you struggling. Some of my issues are solved immediately.

Improves: Alexander lacks, in my opinion, a very important virtue that I believe all teachers should possess. A passion to teach you. You forget this when you are sitting with him in his studio, but the realization comes back and hits you when the clock hits 30 minutes exact and he says, "And that's all we have time for." Let me be very clear, -I'm receiving what a paid for-, so I'm not upset. I just think a teacher should invest in a student's growth and their commitment to the student shouldn't be based solely on what they make out of it financially. Unfortunately, I know that if the money ever stops coming in our lessons will end immediately. Once again, I can't complain or be upset. I paid for a service and I'm receiving it.

This was made clear to me again last week when I had to cancel a lesson.
The teachers need a 24-hour notice for cancellations which is fair and understandable. However, I didn't know this at the time so when I cancelled he only had about 4 hours notice. His initial response was that, "He understood but TakeLessons will charge you for the lesson anyway. Let me know if you still want to meet." After texting him back explaining my problem with that, he went ahead and ensured I wasn't charged. Let me repeat, -In the end he did help me-, but if I hadn't said anything he would've let TakeLessons charge me.

Conclusion: 4 stars. I paid for a service and I'm receiving it well. Alexander's talent for teaching really shines when you listen to his advice, act on it, and notice yourself improving. Understand that improvement comes from practicing on your own time, but Alexander will provide you with everything you need to expedite your growth.
Remember, however, this is a business. If they stop profiting from you don't expect any leniency."

"First off Kimberly is AWESOME. Did I say Kimberly is AWESOME! Just making sure I said Kimberly is AWESOME.

Kimberly is a PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN!

Teaching is her profession. She is devoted to it. She has chosen to be a teacher. She isn’t teaching because she isn’t good enuf to make money another way. She does it because she enjoys passing on her music experience and knowledge while giving her stability and a life in music too. This means she is totally professional. She shows up on time. She is prepared, communicative and focussed on you the student.

Kimberly’s professionalism extends to her way of doing business too. She has well thought out, reasonable rates and payment plans. Her online business is straightforward and user friendly.

Being one of her Online students (I live in Australia) she and I depend on Skype technology for our lessons. She is IT savvy. I am not saying she is a computer whiz…(maybe she is) but she has the right equipment for the job of online teaching and can give basic advice to those who want to join her online. She has students from as far away as Japan I think. So the technology works.

Kimberly is a GREAT MUSICIAN!
Notice I said Musician not just a Great guitar player
If you have been trying to find a music teacher you know that great guitar players do not necessarily make great guitar teachers.

Kimberly is BOTH!!

Her Knowledge and Experience as a Musician spans Jazz, Blues, Fusion and Classical genres.

Having all that knowledge and chops you might think she has an ego the size of the empire state building! She doesn’t. In fact there are many lessons between she and I where she didn’t even pick up the guitar. If you are like me you may have gone into many a guitar store and asked to play a cool guitar. The girl comes over and takes it off the wall for you and plugs it in…but before she hands it to you plays some wild riff 8 bars long and THEN gives you the guitar. I just don’t like that kind of showing off….Kimberly doesn’t show off. Stevie Ray Vaughn said something about his brother Jimmie Vaughn, “When I play I play 90% of what I know; when Jimmie plays he plays 10% of what he knows”. That’s Kimberly….from Blues, Metal, Classical she has the chops but doesn’t shove them down your throat but if you need them …she has them!

Kimberly is very very busy. But when you are with her she is not thinking about her next lesson she is focussed on you.

Kimberly understands Music and how to put students and music together.
The guitar is her main instrument but Kimberly can play and teach several instruments including the drums.

Kimberly is ALWAYS practicing and expanding her experience of Music she is not just a country player or a snobby jazz player.

Kimberly is a self-proclaimed overachiever. That means that even though Kimberly is very very talented she has had to work through musical concepts herself (they didn’t come easy). This is a big plus for students because Kimberly can totally relate to people who are learning. No matter what level of musicianship you are at Kimberly understands and supports your struggles and emphasises your triumphs. Plus she welcomes the sceptical student, “Ok Kimberly why in gods name do I need to learn this??”

I am a slow learner, an overachiever and generally muddle headed. Musical concepts don’t come easily to me at times. I memorise things slowly and get confused and lose focus easily due to my ADD. Many teachers I have had in the past would get frustrated with me. Kimberly just smiles or laughs WITH me and backs up and takes another approach. Kimberly has a variety of tools at her disposal for teaching the same concepts. What this means for students is that she is very adaptable to personal needs, attitudes and ways of learning. If I am not getting something she is trying to get across she dips into her chops bag and pulls out another approach….amazing. If I need her to repeat an explanation 5 times she will do so with a smile on her face…really.

And what is really cool about her is her smile. Kimberly actually smiles at you and makes you feel special and understood.

Kimberly is a wise teacher. More wise than her years. So wise that she knows when NOT TO TEACH!! She wont let you flounder or get stressed. As she gets to know you as a student she knows when you are working something through out loud or in your head and she will just be SILENT. That is a very profound gift of a GREAT TEACHER…appropriate SILENCE.

Kimberly is not only a great music teacher and player Kimberly is a Great PERSON!!

I am a very very discerning person when it comes to friendships and close personal relationships. I can tell you without a doubt I like being in her presence.
Kimberly is a Professional but with a very casual laid back attitude. She is not only inspiring but Kimberly is fun to be around. Which makes each lesson more of a sharing of knowledge time rather than a chugging through gruelling wrote rudiments time.

I am really stoked that Kimberly is not only my music teacher but Kimberly is my FRIEND.

I have been taking lessons from her for 10 months now and every Saturday I am excited to see her and talk to her.
If you have had difficulty finding a music teacher I definitely recommend you give Kimberly a try!!

Did I say Kimberly is awesome!!

I started taking classes with Eric in hopes of becoming a better guitar player. The first thing I noticed about Eric was his cool rocker style and his charming smile. Eric is professional, reliable, and patient. One thing I truly appreciate about Eric is he works with you at YOUR pace. I have never seen him show any signs of frustration while teaching me and his flexible schedule has been really good for a full time college student like myself. Overall Eric is a great musician and an even better teacher. I would recommend Eric to any of my friends or family."

Exercises for Practicing Guitar Chords

There are several ways to master the technique of changing chords, so let’s look at a couple of exercises using basic guitar chords. The basic guitar chords are C, D, Dm, E, Em, F, G, A, and Am. Some instructors add C7, D7, E7, G7, A7 and B7. The F chord is always the most difficult for the beginning guitar player because you hold two strings down with one finger. Ideally, you want your basic guitar chords to sound clean and crisp – no muffled strings. Keep practicing the individual chord …
