We begin with exercises to develop technique and train for agility, musicality and music theory. Classical music is used but not exclusively as we explore the many different genres of music! Ear training is also offered so that the student may be able to play by ear as well as reading music.

Tim is a wonderful instructor. He genuinely loves music, and it comes through during lessons. He has a positive teaching style. He strives to meet my kids where there at and teaches to their interests, but also manages to get technique and theory in. Tim is a treasure!

I started playing violin at 3 years old. Wichita State University gave me the opportunity to get my Music Ed degree and start teaching lessons. I have taken over 500 lessons myself and played in many heavy gigging bands playing gigs almost every weekend. Improvising, Country, Jazz, and Rock are my specialties but I have played lots of Blues, Funk, and Latin jazz as well.

About Rob

Make sure you contact me about scheduling. I have other students and a job that sometimes changes week to week. I may have other times available. Let me know.

Jeff
Initially I was a complete beginner. I've been studying with Rob for a couple of months now. I think I'm making good progress and certainly a lot of that is Rob's doing. Very personable and flexible, he's really taught me a lot and is really good at teaching in a way that has me progressing steadily and not being overwhelmed by such a challenging instrument.
Jeff
great first lesson. Personable and informative.
Lin
Identified many of my errors right away, has given instruction on how to correct. Have noticed definite improvement each week, and given new skills each week to practice .(I'm not likely to pass this pattern in the near future!)

My teaching philosophy is that students learn best when they are having fun! All lessons are designed with each individual student's goals and interests in mind, so if an approach isn't working, we switch things up. With over 15 years of experience teaching students age 3 to adult, I can find something that works for the casual learner and AP/college prep student alike.

Real guitar lessons, real training no gimmicks and no games and no unrealistic expectations, I have a straightforward approach to teaching the guitar in judgement free, laid back, and fun environment. I teach and speak in a way “non-musicians” can understand! So if learning the guitar this way sounds like fun, then sign up with me!

About Jonathan

My name is Jonathan and I am an R&B Guitarist. I’ve been playing guitar and studying the guitar for over 15 years and I’ve been teaching with TakeLessons since 2015. The minute I started learning the guitar I couldn’t stop. After purchasing many books and DVDs I came across a Gospel Guitar DVD

Joseph J.
Love the instructions and his teaching style.
Pedro
Jonathan is very experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to Gospel Guitar. It's difficult to find someone in person and online who is familiar in this genre. He is a godsend. I have learned a lot from him. And his reasoning and explanations are very contextualized and practical. Overall, a great teacher and individual!
Cameron A.
Jonathan is just a great dude. He was put in a tough spot with me because I'm not quite a beginner, so any instructor who gets a student like that has to learn where their student is in their learning journey. Jonathan was able to recognize where I was pretty quickly and I've already improved quite a bit because of him. He's kind. Patient. He's a good dude. He's not afraid to ask me to do something I feel like I can't do because he can see I can. He knows we all start somewhere and we're not gonna be guitar heros out of the gate. Just a good dude. Super chill and knowledgeable. I made a great choice in picking him to be my instructor. You should do the same.
