Interested in learning guitar for the first time, or have been playing for a while and want to develop your skills? When I teach guitar, I try to focus as much as possible on the student's goals as a musician, so we can get you playing songs you enjoy in only a few lessons. I also encourage students to try learning by ear as much as possible to improve their skills and be able to apply it to their own music. If you're interested in taking lessons with me, be sure to reach out and don't be afraid to ask questions!

I have taught guitar since 2012 and have been playing since 2000. I am happy to take students at the beginner and intermediate levels. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

I have been a student of Tim’s for a little over a year now. I started playing guitar at age 52 and when I started with Tim I was very close to giving up or settling on just being able to strum a few chords. I have had many hand injuries in the past that have resulted in arthritis and lack of dexterity in my wrists and some of my fingers and I started doubting I would ever be able to progress in my ability to play. From the very first lesson where I told Tim about my hand issues and my frustrations, he told me he was sure we could work around any physical limitations I had, and he was right. Tim has been able to work with me on alternative ways to play the chords I was having trouble with and has shown me that these alternate techniques along with the bit of music theory he sprinkles into lessons can really expand my ability to play.

In the time I have been studying with Tim, I have done more than I thought I ever could. I went from a frustrated beginner guitar player to having enough confidence to play on stage with some of Tim’s other students and I am now looking forward to what I will be able to do on the guitar instead of being frustrated with what I can’t do.

Tim is a talented and passionate musician as well as a knowledgeable and very relatable instructor which is a rare combination and he's also a really great guy and any student of any age or ability will benefit from studying with him.
Sam
Tim is an excellent guitar teacher and an overall great guy. He provided me with structure and support, enabling me to make the most out of my practice and ultimately progress as a player. His warm personality and contagious enthusiasm for music kept me looking forward to our time together each week. He was also very flexible when it came to scheduling to accommodate for my dynamic schedule.
Brad
Tim is an excellent teacher, providing excellent advice, practice techniques, and insights. He makes learning and improving easy and enjoyable.

Joe is a great teacher and very accomplished guitar player. My skills have increased so dramatically over the last 18 months under his instruction that I'm kicking myself for not finding him sooner!

We generally focus on electric guitar - Blues, Rock and Jazz, but I know Joe teaches many acoustic-oriented clients as well. I highly recommend him.

"Lessons with Mr. Chase were given to our daughter when she turned 13. My daughter loved taking guitar lessons with Chase. He is a very nice teacher, always on time, never missed a lesson. Kept my daughter challenged and each lesson was a step beyond the previous. They would have impromptu jam sessions and he would often stay over the scheduled time if she needed extra help. We only stopped taking lessons because he moved out of state."

She does a great job mixing music reading, theory, and learning songs I want to learn. It’s also wonderful that she sings and she incorporates that into her teaching so I learn to play with a vocalist. I believe any student can progress with her approach and have a lot of fun learning too."
