Private Guitar Teacher

Over the last decade of teaching guitar full time to hundreds of students, my passion remains the same - teaching my students how to play the guitar, not just the songs. My own journey as a heavy metal lead guitarist and songwriter who's transitioned to classical music, folk and the blues has prepared me to teach how to play the guitar in almost every single style of music.

About Greg

For the last thirty years, from the day that I got my first electric as a teenager, to my work today as an acoustic guitarist for the band, Timberwood, and currently as a teacher of more than forty students a week, my life has been devoted to the guitar. I'm an experienced veteran of the metal

Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

I can help you to make real progress!

There are not shortcuts to become a great player but if you take lessons you can save a lot of time, don't waste your time doing things wrongly, I can help you reach your goals.

1) We will work on your technique and you will be able to play anything you want. These are some of the techniques that I can help you to master: Alternate Picking, Economic Picking, Hybrid Picking, Hammer-on/Pull-off, finger picking, tapping and more!

2) You will learn all the theory you need to understand the music you play. This is very important because when you understand what you play you can learn faster and memorize a lot of song and pieces.

3) You will learn all the concepts you need to improvise over any chord progression. As Bruce Lee said "Be water my friend" with this I want to mean you will be able to improvise within any situation.

4) We will work on you favorite music and songs. Yes! We will have fun too.

My main goal is to help you make progress, ...

Joe Sullivan
Eloy is great! He is very talented and his lessons include a combination of theory and practice. He has put in extra time and has gone out of his way to tailor his lessons for my interests.
Ross
Eloy is a very advanced player. He is super nice and SUPER patient. I understand everything he is doing right out of the box for me. I have been playing on and off for about 5 years. I love to play lead. He starts me out with scales. The back bone of lead. He knows exactly where to start. I have had a really positive time with him and actually booked many many more lessons with him. I HIGHLY recommend Eloy for lessons. Thank you Eloy!!

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.

"When I first reached out to Donnie about taking lessons from him, I was a little bit skeptical due to the fact that most of his students were beginning guitarists, and I had already learned the basics from other teachers. I was very quickly forced to eat my words. Donnie talked with me, watched me play, and evaluated my ability, and then found a curriculum that really helped to challenge me in new ways. Rather than rigidly walking through each page of the book, he worked me through the parts that would be most beneficial to me, and then moved me on to the next one once I had mastered the concepts. This allowed me to learn a lot of new things in a short amount of time. Donnie was professional, and very friendly, and was always willing to work with me if I had a schedule conflict. The teacher I had before Donnie was an extremely advanced player, and taught me some helpful techniques, but I just never got to the fun of playing like I have with Donnie. Because of the balanced and consistent diet of assignments he gave me, I was able to progress in my knowledge and skill while enjoying myself the entire way. I'm really hope that my schedule will die back down so I can go back to regular practice and lessons with him again, but even that's not possible, I know that I'll still be picking up my axe whenever I couple free minutes, not because I feel like I need to, but just for the sheer fun of it."

"Where was Richie when I first started playing music?

I have had several music teachers in my life and while I learned something from each I wish Richie had been around or at least someone with his patience, technique and passion for music. He has a great knowledge base but still considers himself a student of music. The combination of his humble demeanor and skill level would make anyone feel like they were just sitting down and playing with a friend for and hour.

The best thing about his style of teaching is how he employs practical guitar/music theory to propel you forward much more quickly to a level that you might never have thought possible to reach in such a short amount of time."

"I have taken one lesson so far with James, with many more to come hopefully. James has been nothing but motivational to get my guitar and singing to the next level. It seems he truly wants to see each and every one of his students succeed and believes that if we tell ourselves that we're the best, that we might just become the best. I am extremely optimistic that my playing is going to dramatically improve from James' lessons as after only one lesson I have learned more than I have self teaching myself over the past year!

I am really looking forward to my next lesson...James is great to work with. Very personable, and a very nice guy. Can't wait till Tuesday!"

Best Rock Guitar Songs for Beginners to Learn 

When you’re first learning to play guitar, it's important to develop the dexterity and coordination of your left and the right hands. To be able to use both hands is our initial goal and this takes a good amount of practice. If you’re going to spend hours practicing, you might as well use that time to learn something that you like to play. After all, it is much more fun to practice songs in a genre that you like, rather than practicing a piece in a style that you don’t like. So, if you …
