Private Guitar Teacher

I have been playing the guitar for 13 years. As a recent graduate from Southeastern Louisiana University, I have been teaching guitar and ukulele lessons as well as classes since the spring of this year (2017). I hold a bachelor's degree in music performance with my primary instrument being the guitar.
I can help you to acquire a solid foundation of music theory knowledge. You can help to better understand music theory concepts if they are paired with guitar techniques to supplement them.
If you are a complete beginner, do not be afraid! I will help you to learn at a pace which is comfortable but still effective for you. These lessons will be focused and designed to fit YOUR needs. Let's learn together :)

One of my favorite things is playing acoustic guitar while singing. If this is your goal, I think we'd work well together. I also have a few guitar books that I use if you're interested in learning to play lead guitar in a band or orchestra, and learn to read music.

Whether you're a first day student or a seasoned player, I've probably taught someone just like you before. I especially love teaching theory and fretboard logic, but I can help you learn whatever you're looking to take on.

With every student, I create a specific path for you that gives you what you're looking to learn (aka what got you excited about picking up the guitar in the first place) along with the essentials to help make your journey as smooth as possible. If there isn't quality tab readily available, I'm down to transcribe the tune for you and I guarantee you'll laugh and enjoy yourself (at no extra charge of course).

About Dave

I've been playing the guitar for 25 years now and teaching for nearly two decades. In 2006, I received his BA in Jazz performance from U-Mass Amherst and since then I've performed anywhere from local bars and cafes, in pits for musical theater, as a show band musician for Carnival Cruise Lines and

Had a great lesson with Dave! Fast-paced and challenging, I felt like he really made good use of our time!
Ken Chavez
Dave is the best instructor I could have hoped for. As an older beginner, I was not sure how much I could pick up but I have made good progress in the past year with his lessons. Lots of fun, look forward to learning more riffs and songs!
Samantha
My 11 year old has had weekly guitar lessons from Dave for two years now.
Her knowledge and confidence in playing the guitar, has greatly improved. Dave gets all the credit for that.
He works well with her, is communicative, and is as flexible as he can be, even last minute.
I have, and will continue to recommend Dave to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons

Guitar is my main squeeze. I love to help people enjoy the instrument as much as I do. learn to shred a rock solo, fingerpick a folk song, or transcribe miles davis. learn to play what you hear on records without resorting to you tube instructional videos (wink). or if you are already an accomplished musician, enhance your ability to employ techniques like chord weaving on the guitar, craft better solos, write more sophisticated chord progressions, etc

Indigo is a fantastic teacher! I've taken lessons with Indigo both online (recently) and in-person (when I used to live in NYC). Indigo's teaching style really resonated with me - she provides incredible support and encouragement for beginners and her instruction has always helped me understand the weird nuances of singing and how to unlock my voice. She has also helped me with more advanced music theory/guitar during lesson to compliment the singing and help with songwriting. She also makes the online format work really well (which I can't imagine is easy) and I've always felt like the online lessons were as valuable/productive as the in-person lessons I took before I moved.

I have been self-taught for a couple years and felt very stuck, learning disjointed online material, but Indigo has absolutely put me on a musical path! It feels really empowering to finally start having a grasp on theory and technique. I highly recommend.

Indigo is a fantastic teacher! Able to speak to a variety of musical styles and elements of music - from songwriting, to guitar technique, to theory. Highly recommend

"Eric is one of the raddest dudes out there teaching. If you want your guitar playing to attract lots of hot babes into your life and make you feel like a rock star, then book your lesson with Eric. He was patient and attentive as I asked him many weird noob questions worthy of a few eye rolls. He understood my struggles, and sent me away with lots of homework to help me progress with my playing and technique. There’s never a short supply of wisdom and knowledge coming from this guy. I’m looking forward to learning more."

"Great Choice with Chase R.

Hiring Chase to work with my daughter is one of the best decisions I've made. He has taught her new skills in guitar instruction and by doing has given her a level of confidence that empowers and motivates her. His level of dedication to her exceeds my expectation and as a result we will continue with additional lessons. Having an instructor that appreciates my daughters enthusiasm to learn more and that teaches techniques that further her scope as a guitar player has been a rewarding experience. Thank you Chase!"

"Taking it to the next level

I started taking lessons from Michael about a year and a half ago. I was in a rut and really wanted to pursue a deeper understanding of blues. The lessons we have embarked on have led me to a much deeper understanding of the theory behind what I'm doing. I think one of the biggest things that Michael has helped with is my personal confidence, especially in the arena of improvisation. I would highly recommend Michael for anyone wanting learn guitar, beginner or advanced, in a comprehensive way."

"I started taking lessons with Ahmad over 5 years ago as a wee beginner. Looking back at where I started, I'm surprised at how much progress I have made and have learned more than I ever expected to.

It is obvious from the start that Ahmad is not only an phenomenal guitar player, but also, and more importantly, displays a strong passion and dedication for teaching. Each lesson is carefully designed and structured to build off of techniques previously learned and Ahmad has a knack for making even difficult concepts easy to digest. He imparts simple tips and tricks, mined from years of experience, that have helped me master techniques and avoid tedious memorization exercises which would have made the learning process agonizingly painful. Having one-on-one lessons also allows Ahmad to give me the personal attention needed to provide feedback, positive and negative, and nip bad habits in the bud before they become ingrained. Additionally, each lesson comes with handouts which are handy to practice with and use as a reference (I have 400+ pages of material so it's important to keep it all organized).

Ahmad has a diverse set of musical tastes and a secondary benefit of taking lessons with him is that he's exposed me to a plethora of great music that I would not otherwise have discovered on my own. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or think you can rival Joe Satriani, there's something for you to learn from Ahmad. Also, I've found that lessons are very motivating in terms of encouraging me to keep practice because, yes, I do get lazy sometimes. With Ahmad, if you put in the time and effort, you will be rewarded greatly with the freedom to be as creative as your heart desires and you will have more fun playing the guitar than a mouse running loose in a cheese factory.

Oh, and Ahmad's a super cool guy too."
