Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have been playing guitar for 4 years now and I would love the opportunity to teach others the skill. I have a guitar already but if you want to use yours that is fine too. Music has always been a passion of mine, and I hope to get people just as excited about it as I am.

About Kyra

I have been playing guitar for 4 years. I try to listen to all types of music so I can be a more versatile teacher. I enjoy helping people do hands-on things, and I try to use different styles because I believe everyone is different.

I teach from a variety of guitar methods and also help students learn and work out current and classic popular songs that I have written out for them or songs that the student may also suggest. I find that this approach inspires and motivates students while learning the
the fundamentals of the instrument.

Tom is an excellent teacher. He works great with my daughter. He is very talented and understands music. I highly recommend Tom.

Tom is a super nice guy with a great positive attitude and teaching style to match. He has lots of experience both playing and instructing. Two thumbs up!
Anya
Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

First lesson. Marc was great
Chris
I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

Having experience for 40 years of playing guitar, I am playing the instrument by merging different style techniques like flamenco, classical, Indian and jazz. As a result, I had developed unique teaching system and study guide.

Sam is an awesome teacher. His style of teaching makes learning the music AND the theory behind it a lot of fun! One of his best abilities is that he can understand questions really well. I have a lot of long, crazy, seemingly nonsensical, confusing, rambling questions, and he is able to ANSWER them all! I am continually astounded! He's assisted me in making a lot of progress, because of that skill, and others, such as patience and articulation, and demonstration. I would recommend him.
S
Sam is a fantastic drum instructor! He has the expertise to teach both beginners (like my child) and advanced students. His personality is winsome and friendly, firm yet kind. He explains music theory in an extremely accessible way - convincing his student why the theory “stuff” makes musical expression even more fun.
Tiffany
Sam is an amazing teacher! He’s so easy going (so my kids feel comfortable, able to ask questions and ask for input). This is great for confidence building! He’s also extremely knowledgeable and able to inspire the creative artist within your child. He gives concrete, helpful instructions on how to improve and practice each week. My kids always have a plan for their week which makes improvement a no-brainer. My kids have improved by leaps and bounds since taking lessons from Sam. They love the skill and artistry they are attaining and love their lessons from Sam. Great guy, great teacher. You will not be disappointed!!!

"I used to play some guitar when I was young, but I had never taken any lessons. When I played with other guitarists, mostly in church settings, I would play simple cords and let the other guitarists cover up my mistakes. Now that I am 60 years old, I decided to make an effort at really learning how to play. I have only been taking lessons for 2 months, but Alex has been a great choice of instructors. He is familiar with the main type of music I like to play, contemporary worship music, and also is knowledgeable about Irish / Celtic music which I also love. He offers very helpful suggestions and instruction, and is very patient with the fact that I am 60 years old, and much of this, especially guitar tablature, is like learning a new language. Each lesson has some more insights and instruction to help me become a better player. I would recommend Alex to anyone looking for an instructor."

"I have taken guitar lessons in the past and wanted to revisit one of my passions again. I decided to take lessons with Ian since he is in my neighborhood and I’m really glad I did. Ian has been very patient and attentive to my learning style. As our lessons have progressed so has the direction of each class. It’s really cool to see how all the concepts we have gone over build on each other. I feel like Ian really goes above and beyond to learn about his students and what they are hoping to achieve. Ian has also been very flexible with my work schedule. After several months of lessons with Ian I can say I’ve learned several things from finger picking, timing, and reading notes. I can’t wait to continue my journey!"

"My daughter, age 9, had been taking guitar classes with a local face to face teacher for a year yet I felt that she hadn't accomplished much. Through a series of questions from Tanesha she was able to create and tailor the lessons that best suited her learning skills & her skill level. In the other class, she hadn't even played a full song. However, through Tanesha she was able to play happy birthday just in time for her Grandmother's bday with in a month. She is also very good at informing you of their progress. This was our first time taking online classes and it has been a wonderful experience thus far. I highly recommend Tanesha!"

"Omar is a great music teacher! We love that he is able to come to our home for lessons, plus he is flexible when we have to reschedule due to doctors appointments. He is very knowledgeable & talented in different instruments. He is currently giving our daughter piano lessons and our son guitar lessons once a week. They enjoy his patient, fun, and low key style vs feeling pressured or nervous. Our children are learning so much from him and feel confident in their new skills -enough to perform in front of others. His prices are very reasonable, and we feel very blessed to have him as our children's music instructor. We highly recommend him!"

"Jared is patient, encouraging, extremely knowledgable, and the perfect teacher for me. I had learned some chords from Youtube but Jared's style of teaching is to not only teach what you need to know now, but set up for later stages of guitar playing.
Jared breaks down songs into pieces, and provides a slowed down recording to play along with. I find this the absolute best part about practicing, to play along with Jared's recording. It also means if I haven't played a song for a while I can go back to the recording for the strum/structure.
Without Jared I don't think I would have stuck with the guitar, and after almost 18 months Jared is encouraging me to explore the electric guitar and take the lessons in a new direction.
There are regular performances with all the students, it's no pressure, and I haven't had one go perfectly yet while on the actual stage (in practice they are perfect) but they give students an opportunity to perform in an environment where they can make mistakes and just get out there and try it!

I would strongly recommend Jared as a guitar teacher - the recordings, the encouragement, the performances, he is a very dedicated teacher."

"I've had about 12 lessons with Karen so far. Out of the few guitar teachers I've gone to in my life, Karen is definitely my favorite. She is super encouraging, patient, and careful about details. We started off by going through a beginner's book that covered sight reading and guitar basics, just what I needed. She was very flexible and willing to incorporate singing into the lessons, which helps a lot. Also, she's generally a good person and it's easy to feel comfortable around her -- in the past I have sometimes been so nervous around previous instructors that I could hardly play a note. Not so this time -- I am very happy with the lessons because I feel like I am making progress. Learning to play guitar is a dream of mine and with Karen I feel like I'll get there!"
