I was apprehensive about guitar lessons in general, but Nathan has changed my mind as a tutor. I am well pleased with how keen he is to tailoring lessons to one's goals. He is clear and precise in his teaching, and is also fun. I highly recommend him to whoever is considering it. I have learned so much in a couple lessons and always leave looking forward excitedly to the next one. Good man.

In our lessons, I will provide recommended listening to go along with our guitar-focused studies.

I am excited to help you along your musical journey!

I've been teaching Guitar for 20 years. I bring a joy and excitement to teaching music. I structure my lesson so students learn music they are interested in.

Within the first few lessons, beginner students will be able to play a song all the way through and as time goes on you'll be able to play solos and develop your technique.

I specialize in Pop, EDM, Rock, Blues, Heavy Metal, Jazz and Classical music. typically use Hal Leonard and Mel Bay books, and have the following tools available for your lessons:

2 Fender practice amps
Electric guitars
Steel String Acoustic guitar
Nylon String Acoustic Guitar
Electric Bass Guitar
Ukulele

I love working with students of all ages, kids to adults, and all experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Learn to play your favorite songs!!
If you are a beginning guitarist, and want to learn to play rock, metal, or blues guitar, I can help. I am not a theory teacher. I am a self taught guitarist who can help you quickly learn to navigate the fretboard.
Even if you have never picked up a guitar in your life, I can show you how to quickly grasp the fundamentals of guitar. Beginner lessons cover posture, tuning, tone, timing, picking technique, chords, basic scales, muting, bends, trills, slurs, hammer ons and pull offs.
I will not teach things the student already knows. We will take off from where you are. The goal of lessons is determined by the student. Whether you want to learn blues phrasing, basic cowboy chords, or just that one Hendrix riff, I got you covered.

"Everything a music teacher should be

My worst nightmare was that taking guitar lessons as an adult would be similar to my forced and short-lived piano lessons as a youth. Mark quickly set my fears aside the first lesson by outlining what I would need to learn to reach my goals. He is very adaptive to the student based on music preferences and skill progression. Each week we focus on progressively harder songs.

Aside from guitar knowledge and teaching skills, Mark is also very flexible around your schedule. He really makes an effort to communicate and to reschedule when needed.

I'd recommend Mark to anyone looking for guitar lessons. I feel lucky to have found Mark as a teacher."

"We were fortunate to have David recommended to us by a family member. Not only did he come to our house and save us the added stress of traveling during our busy week, he often stayed longer than scheduled to ensure understanding of new skill(s) being taught. He was calm, professional and patient and had an adaptive approach with our son that increased his confidence when he struggled."

"The Master! Greg is not only an excellent instructor, he’s completely approachable. What started of as a group lesson for my high school aged sons has turned into a highly customized online experience where they learn at their own pace. Greg has tremendous knowledge of guitar but more importantly understand the step-by-step methodology necessary to instruct. It’s building blocks and he manages to make that completely fun.

It’s been great to reconnect with you Greg. Thanks for all that you do and for the passion you bring to each lesson and each of my boys!"
