I teach guitar lessons face-to-face without sheet music. This is my adaptation of Japanese instruction (involving a call-and-response method). I begin by teaching the student the major scale in first position (the first three frets above the head) in the key of C. Once this has been learned (backwards and forwards), the student is ready to learn first-position chords. Barre chords, the blues scale, as well as jazz-flavored triads are taught once first position chords have been mastered.

About Samuel
I've been a performing singer-songwriter since 1993. My influences include Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Richie Havens. I've been teaching private lessons since 2011.

We'll begin with major scales. That way, your fingers will get to know the notes that comprise the chords you'll eventually be learning. Eventually, you'll be able to play whole songs with both major and minor chords and play solos over them (also based on the scales).

I'm a primarily self-taught musician. The bulk of my knowledge came from listening to and imitating delta blues artists such as Robert Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt. Though you will have learned to play campfire standards in fewer than eight lessons, the blues (particularly the form originating from the Mississippi Delta) is the foundation of ALL A

merican music. The better you understand and are able to play it, the more options you will have created for yourself musically. Once you've gained confidence playing the blues, I'll introduce informal jazz. For more information about my curriculum, you may review my published articles on TakeLesson's Teacher Blog. Please note that I'm available to teach both in-person and online: http://takelessons.com/blog/learning-guitar-without-sheet-music http://takelessons.com/blog/reasons-to-learn-guitar-scales http://takelessons.com/blog/beginner-guitars http://takelessons.com/blog/blues-chord-progressions http://takelessons.com/blog/best-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/guitar-barre-chords http://takelessons.com/blog/learning-guitar-styles http://takelessons.com/blog/expand-your-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/maximize-acoustic-guitar-lifespan http://takelessons.com/blog/are-you-ready-to-play-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/blues-guitar-exercise http://takelessons.com/blog/writing-a-song-on-guitar-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/writing-a-song-on-guitar-lyrics-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/guitar-tips-for-open-mic-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/preparing-for-bluegrass-guitar-lessons-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/2-simple-tricks-to-play-country-guitar-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-write-a-jazz-guitar-song-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/famous-guitar-players-who-are-not-virtuosos-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/5-jazz-guitar-licks-z01

I found Samuel to be very good at making me feel comfortable at acting, even though I'm a fairly introverted person. Also he adapts to the subject and managed to have me memorize 3 pages of script, which is not something I thought I anyone could get me to do.

I've been teaching Guitar for 10 years and my students have gone on to play in different venues internationally. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start playing songs and as time goes on you'll be able to not only play with proficiency but to compose music for Guitars. I specialize in Classical (Spanish) Guitar, Pop and Country, I typically use our own method books based on some of the teachings from the greatest composers that have played the instrument. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I am a musician from the Conservatory of Bellas Artes in Colombia and a Music Producer from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. My Career began when I was 12 years old playing Piano and today I work among world known musicians.

Most of our students are from the South Florida area. Our pricing is reasonable and I can create custom packages to accommodate your budget.

It would have been better if there was more to work on than one drill. Neisha is good at practicing as we declared at the beginning and doesn’t have much to work on. We won’t be continuing.

After years of playing, I know how to break down the guitar and teach it to anyone willing to learn. I take the 80/20 approach to learning guitar and will get you up and playing in no time. Lessons will teach you the following:

* songs you actually want to play
* how to read music and guitar tablature
* chords and progressions
* music theory
* guitar technique for all styles to make you a well-rounded player
* learn how to write your own tunes and jam in any style with anyone

About Justin
Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and thoughts about how to learn music and guitar.

My journey with the guitar has taken me from the electric rock of Jimi Hendrix, to the shredding of Joe Satriani, then the otherworldly sounds and speed of Al di Meola, and, finally, to the broad world of classical guitar, Flamenco and world music. Over the years, I have compiled a set of skills, techniques, and theories from all corners of the musical globe to help teach students the fastest path to guitar mastery. My goal is to show you how to master the fundamental skills of guitar in order to
play in any style and ultimately create your own music.

· Classical Guitar · In home
Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

My style of teaching is all about YOU and what you'd like to get out of it. I will help you build a great foundation of musical knowledge based on your personal music taste and your goals. Contact me today, let's get started!

About Carrie
Carrie Schneider is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter living in Nashville, TN by way of Minnesota. As a lover of all genres of music, her wildly unique style spans from classic and elegant Americana, to dark and thoughtful electronic-dream-pop.

This is simple, I want to get you results as fast as possible. I know the quickest ways to show you what you really need to know to get around the things holding you back now, like finger dexterity, or memorizing chords, and teach you methods without bad habits that give you power to go where you want music as your tool.
I listen to where you want to go, give you the best advice about how to get yourself there, and show you the secrets and how they work, the rest all comes from you.
We can take our time or move as fast as you are ready to progress through the things necessary for you to achieve your dreams.

About David
My teaching style comes from listening to the direction a student wants to take music in their life. I learn what they really want, and I follow up by creating an individualized lesson plan that involves the desires of the apprentice musician while also including the necessary skills for growing beyond any and all limitations of understanding and interfacing with the instrument.

More important than the advanced techniques I can teach in any specific genre, I can bring foundational concepts and imperative insight when listening to any song. I can teach a student how to break down musical components and hear parts, pick out the notes, and learn everything they need to bring the music they love to life. If a student doesn’t leave inspired after each lesson, then I’m failing at my only goal.

I can relate to all the problems any student i
s having. I’ve been there before, and can help them through each challenge they face. My students will be heard, and focus will be brought to the root cause of the problem. Then we will work together to form solutions.

Through my teaching, students can see how easy it is to practice the things they want to play so that they come out sounding how they really should. It will suddenly become easy to fill the gaps in every half-right tab.

My students will find elements of the bigger picture coming together in ways that may be unexpected. If music is constantly expanding our own limitations, then there will always be more we can achieve with it. The path from listener to musician to artist becomes walk-able.
