Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced guitar player interested in learning more chords, notes, strumming patterns, finger picking styles, guitar theory or how to read tab? Do you just want to get better at that acoustic guitar you've had? Or learn a song for a special occasion?

Acoustic guitar was the first instrument I gravitated towards and learned 13 years ago, and now my acoustic guitar is a must have whether I'm home or on the road. I write a majority of my songs on the guitar & love the unique style of bonding that everyone has in relation to their guitar.

Whether you are planning on leading with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your guitar goals! If you have any questions, please message me!

I started learning Ukulele with Kevin and then picked up Guitar lately, Kevin has a systematic way of teaching, instead of covering each and every chords, he summarizes them by different shapes, and also their variations, so you can memorize the basics and find their "relative" chords easier. He also taught music theories, how each chord is formed, and if you want to play a specific song, he's also glad to help on finding the exact chord and transfer them into different notes that suits you. Definitely have your notebook ready since there's a lot to learn. The harder thing for myself is with the online class, it's not as efficient as a face-to-face one, I also tend to be less motivated to practise but you ought to just find your own motivation!
Jennifer Closson
I have been involved in singing for many years now and I can tell you that Kevin knows what he is doing with his special skills teaching voice and guitar. I feel lucky to have found him and I hope to continue learning from him for a long time.
Anthony
Kevin offers helpful advice and insight. An instructor with a deep understanding of music, he demonstrates a great ability to guide new students. He brought clarity to problems I experienced as a new guitar player. I highly recommend inviting Kevin into your music journey.

About Tony

If you want to be the best, learn from the best. Talent, skill, confidence- priceless!. Choosing the right voice coach or singing teacher can be a difficult task, as there are so many coaches and teachers out there. My approach is unique in a sense that I do not believe in a "One size fits all"

Ivana B.
I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

you could tell that he not only was a good and patient teacher but that he was interested in well being and was exceptional in his creative approach to teaching! most definitely a 5 star teacher.

One of my favorite things to do is to sit around the campfire with friends and family, guitar in hand, sand sing the night away! My personal style of guitar is voice accompaniment. However, I am more than happy to teach you the basics of Classical Guitar as well! Guitar is one of the most versatile instruments around, and I can't wait to get you started on it!

I can play any number of styles from blues and country to hard rock and heavy metal. I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now. I know music theory very well and I'm great with making the theory part fun to learn while teaching to play a style that the student prefers. I'm an easy going guy and really patient. I make the promise to every student that I will give them every bit of effort and support I can to propel them in their music career. I'm one of those people who gets along with everybody and I like to make my lessons fun for each student.

About Garrett

I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now and I've played in just about every type of band. After playing in a metal band for about 5 years I switched over to a classic rock group for a couple years. In both of those groups I was lead guitar/lead vocals. Now for the last few years I've bee

Great lesson, loads to learn!!!
Brad
I tried learning guitar a number of years ago. Garrett was great getting me started back into guitar. He quickly got me going with some simple chords and techniques. He has a strong understanding of guitar and makes it easy to understand. + he can play anything!
Derrick
What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!

"Charles has been my teacher for a few weeks now and I am so happy I found him on takelessons. He is an amazing guitar player but also an amazing teacher, he always comes prepared and the class is well organized. He is also open to hearing suggestions to learn your favorite songs. He is very encouraging which gives the motivation to keep going which is so important for a beginner. I am already seeing great progresses after only a few weeks, and I can't wait for more lessons this year. Highly recommend him if you are looking to get started with the guitar! You will really enjoy learning with him, he is also a very cool and fun guy so you can learn in a nice environment, whether it is in his studio at his place, at your place or online."

"My son has been taught by Michael year round for about 4 years now. When my son first came to Michael, he didn't know anything about the acoustic guitar. But now my son is a great guitar player. My son was able to learn his first song really fast and was so excited to play it for me. This is what is great about learning guitar with Michael. Its not just about chords and theory, he understands that kids want to play songs. My son has learned many songs from different genres. Under Michael's careful instruction and guidance my son has gained the confidence needed to teach himself new songs. Michael's way of teaching is fun and efficient. We are very pleased to have Michael as a teacher."

She really listened to me and for the first time (I've had a number of teachers) I was encouraged that she took the time and made the effort to provide me structure for practice which I very much want and, at the same time, relieved that she is open to modifying based on my ability, interest and feedback She took time with patience and grace to guide me through unfamiliar territory and was very clear in her explanations and demonstrations of everything.

At college, David majored in studio composition, a commercial writing major. So he brings a thorough understanding of musical structure.
