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!

Scott is awesome! Super knowledgeable in so many instruments, and he works with you to help you learn what you are interested in and establish a strong foundation to be able to grow as a musician. Lessons are always enjoyable, and I appreciate the time and effort he puts in to create tailored, individualized lessons. He has been my teacher for both mandolin and classical guitar. I would highly recommend lessons with Scott!
Jaya
I appreciate Scott's relaxed style. He is able to make a realistic practice schedule for me to fit in to my work week. It is obvious he is very knowledgeable and has given me a lot of good tips so far. I would definitely recommend Scott.
Rush
I took weekly electric guitar lessons with Scott from 2004 to 2012. He is without a doubt an extremely talented, enthusiastic, and compassionate teacher. Whether he was helping me learn basic chords or teaching me complicated songs, Scott never wavered in his dedication to teaching. Over the eight years as his student, Scott gave constructive criticism in a courteous manner. He was on time, inquisitive about the songs and music I was listening to, and ended lesson with new material for me to practice. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to any aspiring guitar student.

"Really happy to recommend Trevor as a guitar teacher. I started taking lessons with him in December and already feel like I've learned a lot, from flexibility and strength-building exercises for fingers to picking patterns to how to restring the guitar (at my request, since it had been about 20 years). It's also a lot of fun. He does a great job of listening to what you want to learn and suggesting ways to get there."

"Greg is the kind of teacher that has the skill & ability to set you up with a strong musical foundation to carry the weight of becoming whatever you desire in music.
He does this with a good balance of understanding that not all players want to be the same 80's rock god he trained to be. He knows how to talk/instruct to someone from any age or musical background without being condescending or pretending that he knows better than you as to what sound you want to be able to make.

He's very diverse! This is perhaps, personally, my favorite thing about Greg.
Music is about so much more than technique & theory, it's about style & artistry. This is an understanding & guidance that YouTube could never give me like Greg did.

Though he was the guy who helped me pick out my 1st guitar, he also helped me fill in the other areas in my musicality by instructing me in some bass & drums. This has been invaluable as a worship leader to communicate to all parts of the band. (Seriously, if you pay for lessons, pay a REAL musician like Greg, who can see the gaps you can't)

The only reason he's getting a 4 out of 5 is for the setting in which I was taught.
It began in a hard to find downstairs area of a multiplex building. Then the backroom of a music store where he was constantly needed to step out & assist with other things because the store was a start up business.
It was like 10yrs ago, & the locations & setting have likely changed.
Call me harsh for docking his rating, but I was paying my own way & felt really upset by parts of my lesson time being taking up for other things, or waiting outside a locked building when things should have started on time."

"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."

"Jimmy is an awesome guitar teacher! A couple of yrs. ago, my 12 year old son was looking at getting professional guitar training, because though he was interested, he had very little k/w etc..and one of his friend's Dad recommended Jimmy.
You can see right away, that Jimmy is excellent with kids..and my son seems to enjoy every session with him. Jimmy's coaching technique is worth a mention as well. He makes it a point to make your basics very strong, which equips the person with enough skill to actually 'create' their own music versus simply 'copying' an existing song etc. I've been thoroughly satisfied sending my son to Jimmy for guitar sessions and the result shows. I see my son now playing quite fluently...and with confidence and will try and take a shot at making the cut for his High School's music/guitar team.

Also, looking at some of the other music instruments displayed in his studio, does seem Jimmy's a very talented musician, well versed in several areas.

Finally, Jimmy's studio is one nice n cozy place, where parents can do office work, sit and stretch out, watch TV, read and doze off or simply watch their kids learn guitar. I like being there as well :).
