John Krauss has been teaching our 4th grade boy acoustic guitar for the past year. When he started, our son could not clap a rhythm to save his life but now is learning to strum on beat and follow along with lessons successfully. John challenges our 9 year old with different styles and techniques that push him to the next level. He encourages our child in a warm and respectful way. We appreciate John's professionalism and patience with working with a young student. We highly recommend him. "John is a nice guy who helps me learn new chords and licks. I like my lessons!" says the 4th grader.

I thought trying to learn to play the guitar at the age of 35 with no musical background, with kids and a full time job was a daunting task. That was until I met John. I have had 30 minute lessons with John for the past year and a half. There was a steep learning curve for me in the beginning, but John remained very patient and encouraging. His knowledge of music and his ability to explain and teach in a way that I could understand is second to none! I can now play a couple dozen songs and have a great foundation of skills to play many many more! I recommend John to anyone of all ages who wish to learn how to play the guitar.
Mark
We are very happy that our son takes guitar lessons with John Krauss. John is a very skilled and versatile guitar teacher. He was adept at discovering my son's specific interests and learning style(s) and has tailored his lessons accordingly. My son enjoys, and looks forward to his lessons.
John brings a lot of experience as a musician to his teaching. For much of his life he has performed on stage as a Rock and Jazz guitarist. In addition to teaching music, John Krauss is an award winning sound engineer. He has recorded musical ensembles and soloists, as well as, audio books by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Senator Fred Thompson, and other well known authors, speakers, and public figures.

I had my very first lesson today with Sal, and I’m excited about some very cute things he taught me in just a short period of time. He is very talented, approachable, enjoyable to work with, and knows what he’s doing. I look forward to learning and growing with him.

This brief lesson was helpful, especially since its my first time learning. I learned a few chords and now have some homework to do. Very personable and straightforward! I just moved back to Dallas and needing some instructions to finally get started.

Online Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for the past 15 years. I help students find their unique musical voice through the study of songs and techniques they are interested in. For younger students I also use the Hal Leonard guitar method books to learn music reading. As students advance we switch to William Levitt's Modern method for guitar for jazz students, or Christopher Parkening's classical guitar method for fingerstyle players. Students should be able to play chords to their favorite tunes within 6 weeks. I teach to inspire passion for music. If you love music it makes it fun to practice. When you practice it makes music fun!

"I had a great first lesson. Chris tailors the lesson for the individual. He asked me what songs I wanted to learn and customized the lesson around that, so I can learn those songs first. I would definitely recommend Chris. I am a beginner and he keeps it simple and gives good direction. I look forward to continue lessons and see my progression."

"I took lessons from William for approximately three years before work-life squelched my personal guitar playing aspirations. William was a wonderful teacher with whom I still stay in touch. He was willing to share with me as much theory as I could handle, in addition to a diverse exposure to blues, jazz, rock, and from time to time, seduced my ear and stretched my playing aspirations by having me dabble in some classical (fingering techniques). He also exposed me to various musical genres through listening sessions to keep me motivated and present to me endless aural possibilities to which to aspire. I believe I could take a life time of lessons from William and never get bored. He is also a subject matter expert in all types of gear: guitars, strings, and equipment. He, during my tutelage under him, had numerous guitars of all types, makes and models (which he would occasionally allow me to play). I miss my lessons and hope he will be active teaching, when I am able to retire, so as to resume my learning adventure."

"Exceptionally Tallented Teacher and Musician

Jason is a gifted player, dynamic teacher, and he motivates me to play better and challenge myself.

I've been puttering around on the guitar since I was in my early 20's. I finally started taking lessons in my early 30's. Instructors I've had in the past were fine, but never challenged me. They were content to teach me to play whatever song I was interested in but never the theory behind it. They never seemed invested in my success. With Jason, it is completely different. He brings in a great mix of playing for fun while helping me play outside my ability and comfort zone.

First, he challenges me to play better. I'm not always happy while we are running chord drills with a stopwatch, but because of it, I am better, faster, and music is a lot more enjoyable to play when you are not thinking about where chords or scales are. He is quick to support what I do correctly, but also doesn't shy away from fixing things I do wrong or bad habits that I have developed. He also mixes in regular work on improvisation skills, reading TAB, and even writing your own music or solo work.

Next, he teaches me to be more accurate. If we are working on a song that is too fast or technical, he’ll slow it down either by using software or recording a quick backing track. Then we both play and focus on accuracy. It’s always a good feeling to play all the way through a song even if it’s at 80% speed.

Finally, Jason is simply a real standup sort of guy. He is punctual, communicates with his students regularly, organizes events where students can play, and takes a real interest in his students.

I wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend Jason to anyone of any skill or ambition level."

5 Easy Songs for Kids to Play On Guitar

Are your kids looking for easy songs to play on guitar? Get them started with these great suggestions from guitar teacher Willy M.... That first guitar lesson is critical for establishing a love of playing in our students, but most of the time teachers approach the instrument as though we need to prepare the student for the worst. "It will be difficult... You have to put in a lot of practice... Your fingers will hurt, etc." These things only serve to discourage the student and the parent, who …
