Private Guitar Teacher

Welcome to the world of guitar! I look forward to guiding you through your new musical journey! For my guitar lessons, we will study the chords and techniques of the instrument. My standard guitar courses are perfect for the absolute beginner who wants guidance on what path to take. We will cover chords, strumming, how to put songs or pieces together, fingerpicking, and how to use our hands in the most effective ways possible to get the results we want! This course is also the perfect place to start if you are an absolute beginner, but are interested in classical/flamenco playing, as this will cover the basics of music and handling the instrument. Let's start your journey together!

About Zachary

Hello there! I am currently a junior in college studying nursing but also pursuing classical and Flamenco guitar during my spare time. Please do not be discouraged by me being only 21 years old; I may be young, but I am experienced. I went to a well known performing arts high school in Florida wher

Amazing teacher of ukulele! He is experienced in both ukulele and guitar so his knowledge of both is really helping me learn quickly. He always gives feedback, instruction and homework. I really appreciate his style of teaching that he is patient, respectful, organized, knowledge and makes everything seem fun and easy. He has his own book for Flamenco Guitar which he sent me free of charge. Also, he responds quickly to any questions or help on days that I do not have a lesson scheduled. He goes above and beyond. If you need a skilled ukulele or guitar teacher then choose Zach today!
Simon Hernandez
I took a chance with Zach and it may easily be one of the best decisions I've made in my musical journey. I have already taken several guitar classes in the past, as well as being self-taught, so I have a bit of experience with taking guitar classes. He adapts his lesson to whatever skill-level you are at, low or high, he will meet you there and teach you how to get to the next level. I learned flamenco techniques and rhythms I never thought I could do. Zach seriously set the bar high for a guitar class. It made me realize how important it is to have a teacher who genuinely cares about your progress and will go above and beyond to teach you anything you're struggling with. His patience and genuine helpful spirit were things I didn't know would be such important factors to inspire and stir up more passion for guitar. Zach is very knowledgeable, wonderfully communicative and a fantastic teacher. Highly, Highly, Recommending him.

Lessons with me are very unique because in addition to learning the guitar, you will learn many things related to music from my background as a professional symphony musician and music educator.

I can teach either in English or Spanish.
I can also teach double bass, cello, charango, and general music.

I teach all levels of guitar in the areas of rock, blues and jazz, but I really focus more on the musical skills need to play guitar in any style. These include a thorough chord vocabulary, experience playing rhythm guitar, and a complete progressive study of scales and their use in improvisation (lead guitar) starting with pentatonic scales and progressing to major scales, different forms of minor scales and modes. All scales are learned in multiple positions and the student learns to perform with them in any key. In every lesson the student and I play exercises and study materials together to make actual music from the materials being studied.

About Dennis

I have been teaching guitar for 25 years in the Washington DC metro area. I work with students 12 years of age and up, but I am especially experienced at teaching adult students regardless of whether they are beginners or have previous guitar experience. I have performed in acoustic Celtic, new age

Tom
Dennis has been a wonderful guitar teacher and mentor for me over the last 18 months or so. I am in my mid-50s and was starting essentially as a beginner when I signed up to work with Dennis. Thanks to Dennis' patient and individualized approach, I have made great strides and am pleased with how I have progressed. While he is a very accomplished guitarist, he is also a very experienced teacher. Dennis' teaching approach is not to ask the student to follow a rigid learning plan or replicate the journey he took to mastering the guitar, but rather focuses on tailoring the lessons to the student's abilities, musical interests, time constraints, learning modes, etc. The bottom line is that I enjoy working with Dennis each week and practicing what he has taught me.

The pandemic has obviously thrown a big wrench into the giving of guitar lessons. Before, Dennis was teaching me at his house. We now meet online using the Takelessons platform. Online lessons took some getting used to and are clearly not optimal, but I think Dennis has become more and more adept at making it work as well as possible.

I heartily recommend Dennis as a guitar teacher.

Dennis is easygoing and great to work with.

This was my first ever guitar lesson and I thought it was a blast. The instructor took the time to explain best practices and why they were so important. I also really enjoyed seeing the instructor's passion for the guitar and that passion made the whole experience even better!

You can expect instruction in three areas--theory, technique, and repertoire, or put more simply, ideas, skills, and songs. I will teach you a skill, we will discuss why and how it works, and then I will show you how to use it in the context of a song. This process can take place over a few months or a few minutes, depending on what's being discussed and the experience level of the student. I will almost always send you home with reference sheets and/or recordings. Though we sometimes learn out of books, I prefer to generate custom lessons and materials and focus on playing by ear.

About John

I've noticed that most musicians spend very little time on the things that really work. Often times, the things great musicians tell us we should do are not the things we practice! So many musicians and students come to me saying that they want to get better, they want to perform, they want to cr

I work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for young musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BME from the College of Wooster in Ohio. Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collabo

Are you interested in being able to confidently play lead and rhythm parts in a band? Want to learn to write songs? Want to learn to just strum along to your favorite records by yourself?

I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. My aim is to help every student achieve their personal goals on their instrument within the context of a relaxed and patient environment that promotes a love of music!

I achieve this by:

1) Individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners.

2) Ensuring that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument and being able to play in a variety of settings.

I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. I ...

Chris is a great instructor! He caters his teaching style according to you and your skill level, which was exactly what I was looking for as an intermediate player who didn't need to go over the basics or start learning theory. After my sessions with Chris are done, I'm excited to keep practicing and see how much I can improve before the next lesson. Highly recommended!
Corey
Chris accommodated where I am as a musician and tailored our lessons to best help me do what I want to do - learn base lines and rhythm. He prepared for each lesson and presented me with new material that was exactly what I needed. He was laid back, knowledgeable, and accommodating of my jumping all over the place as I experiment. Excellent teacher.
Tim
I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Chris for 9 weeks. He is an accomplished player, and absolutely well qualified to teach. I am especially impressed by, and appreciative of, his patience with my slow progress so far. He always provides positive feedback, and is supportive of letting me determine the pace of instruction.

I highly recommend anyone interested in learning guitar contact Chris, and have a conversation with him about your experience, musical tastes, and playing goals. He is easy to talk with and takes an immediate interest in tailoring instruction to match your goals and works to incorporate lessons into your particular lifestyle.

I cannot overstate how fortunate I am to have found Chris as a guitar teacher.

What started of as a group lesson for my high school aged sons has turned into a highly customized online experience where they learn at their own pace. Greg has tremendous knowledge of guitar but more importantly understand the step-by-step methodology necessary to instruct. It’s building blocks and he manages to make that completely fun.

"Great with kids!

We have been with Raymond for over a year now and love him! Started out with my 4 year old son wanting to learn guitar. Every instructor we went to said he was too young. Mr. Raymond took the time to interview him and took him on as a student. My son goes to his lesson once a week and still is keeping interest and has fun playing guitar. Now 5, he has far surpassed my lack of skills. I am thinking about starting classes so I can keep up with him. Now my 7 year old daughter has started piano lessons with him right after my sons lesson and she loves it as well. Thank you for all the patience! When Mr. Raymond gets to playing that Spanish Guitar....its music to my ears!"

Scott feels like a family member now and we are all so grateful we found him!"
