Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Modern guitar music is often filled with heavy effects that mask the natural tone of the instrument.
A well played acoustic guitar can blend into any musical environment. Bluegrass, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Funk, Rock, and Metal, or any cutural/ world musc. And yet, it's an instrument which needs no accompaniment.
Make your guitar sing by learning good technique, creative rhythmic picking and strumming, and unique chord voicings. Develop sight reading, improvisation, and composition. Within just a few lessons, you can expect results in learning a song of your choice, and understanding the songwriting choices made by your favorite artists.

I've been going to Jason for a few months now and I have significantly improved my playing ability and increased my music knowledge. Lessons are tailored to what I want to learn and there has been noticeable improvement even over a short period of time.

He is really patient and kind, and he got playing songs in days.
Leslie
Jason tailors the course to a student's individual learning pace and needs. There is also a good combination between theory and learning cords to play a song. Technique is emphasized to build good habits and a foundation for future growth.

I combine the styles of music that you prefer with some kind of method book for reading and theory. No purchasing of music is required. Normal lessons start with the previously assigned material, determining what we need to work on, new material, and ending with things to do at home.

Sean is great
NIMMI S.
Sean was a great teacher. I asked him if he knew how to teach Bollywood style Violin and even though he didn't he took the time to study it and learn just to teach me. I really appreciate that he was so open to trying so hard for his students. I think Sean is great!
Marc T.
Great first lesson. High hopes for follow lessons.

I self-taught myself guitar over 35 years ago; mostly forgotten. Sean began with establishing goals that would meet my goals. The feedback to me during the lessons was focused and delivered in a friendly manner. Progression was enhanced due to his manner and his approach to teaching. While this was the first lesson, I am looking forward to future lessons.

Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.
Kenjah
I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have taught guitar for 10 years and believe students should get to play what they want to play! Students are asked to come up with a list of songs and/or artists they would love to play. Through teaching chords, note reading and theory, the song possibilities are endless! I also can help the aspiring singer/guitar player to be able to both play and sing simultaneously.

"Ivan is an exceptional teacher. His instruction goes far beyond the technical foundation required for all musicians - he integrates teachings that help one tap into the emotional connection to music and how that impacts playing. His disciplined approach helped me break out of some habits that developed as a self-taught guitarist and his patience was an asset for someone like me, who is very impatient.

From Ivan you will establish a foundation that is build on theory and technique. With Ivan there are no shortcuts - practice, be diligent and you'll achieve consistency. He works you hard but it's worth the effort because with these pillars, even I, an uneducated musician, have seen growth in my skills.

Geography is no issue so no matter where in the world you live, I highly recommend Ivan as a teacher and mentor."

"I would highly recommend Eric at House of Music for guitar lessons. I am after a certain style of guitar music using finger picking to play for my special needs son. I have learned that not all teachers are familiar with this style. Thankfully, Eric is great at it. He is also teaching me how to read music and not just play the chords or tab which is something I had overlooked. I am thankful he has been able to work with me and my unique set of circumstances and help me reach my goals."
