I have been studying the guitar privately and formally for over 13 years now. I have been performing in bands for all of that time, in addition to solo performances. I have proficiency in a variety of genres and have studied classical guitar, resulting in an Associates in guitar performance. I have also attended the Berklee College of Music as a guitarist.

As a beginner with no experience I found Marty to be a great instructor, helping me advance my guitar playing while developing enough of an understanding of music theory so it all made sense.

As a composer, I have been commissioned by Grammy-award winning choirs, written for orchestras, and ensembles, and have had my music performed all over the world. As a composition or theory teacher teacher, I believe that it’s about finding a way to express yourself and your vocabulary, which is completely unique to each person. It will be my focus in a short span of time to give you the tools to access the music you hear and want to create in your head and turn it into something tangible.

About Alex

I am a professional composer, pianist, and singer originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I moved to Houston to study at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music this past fall (2019) and I am here pursuing my Master's Degree in Composition for the next few years.

Was skeptical of virtual lessons, but Alex is making it work. He's been great with my son, quick to respond, answering all our emails, texts and kept my wife and I in the loop. Very pleased so far.

Really patience and really great to work with ...
Natalie
I really enjoyed my experience taking voice lessons from Alex! I learned something new every lesson and was given the opportunity to sing some of my favorite songs along with some that were less familiar. Alex helped me with many audition pieces and made sure I was prepared and confident before going into every audition. He made every lesson fun and I would definitely recommend taking lessons from him!

We can learn melodies, different chords and songs that you like, and how to play them in different ways. We can add a little bit of technical exercises and theory if you want! You can start playing ukulele in just a few lessons!

Carlos definitely earned a 5 star rating! Bought lessons for a friend as a gift after I watched a couple of his YouTube videos. Before and after bookong, he was communicative and flexible on scheduling. My friend just took her first lesson and could not contain her excitement! Said she learned more in 45 minutes than she had in for plus years. She plans to continue learning from him. Thanks Carlos!
Charles W.
Coming from piano, the guitar has always seemed daunting to me. Prior to my lessons with Carlos, I had tried to teach myself songs/chords without much luck. Fortunately for me, Carlos turned out to be an extremely patient, friendly and competent teacher - I immediately knew I’d be progressing quickly with him! His qualifications speak for themselves, but I can’t recommend Carlos enough.

As a classically trained vocalist with undergraduate and masters degrees in vocal performance, I have well grounded classical training, but my experience in traditional and contemporary musical theatre makes me a well-rounded vocalist who is comfortable in all styles! I hope to create well rounded musicians who are not only confident singers but also have knowledge of music theory and general musicianship!

About Haley

I'm a voice and piano teacher based in Charleston, Illinois but I'm surprised all the time by how quickly my students have taken to online lessons! During my time at EIU I studied a lot of opera, classical music, and musical theater, but I also find great joy in contemporary musical theater and p

Hello guitarists! My name is Michael O'Hara and I am so excited to teach you the guitar. I'm 33, and I've been playing the guitar, studying and making music for over 18 years. I studied jazz/fusion guitar at Berklee College of Music and have played with more people in more situations than I now remember.

I love working with students at all ability levels. My passion is bringing out the artistry in my students and teaching them that music can be something that feeds your soul for the rest of your life. Any level of player can do this and I am excited to help you put your voice into your playing!

Are you brand new to the guitar? Are you an experienced musician looking to learn more music theory or develop your technique? I can help with that. Whatever your ability level, I can help you develop your skills. There are as many ways to approach learning music as there are musicians, and you are

Mike came recommended through a friend and it's been an incredible experience so far! He's super friendly through his professionalism and was immediately able to assess my past musical experience and learning style- something that I've always taken note of and appreciated. Would absolutely refer to any level of ability/experience.
Tony
Mike was a fantastic instructor. He had the perfect balance of encouraging me in my strengths while also challenging me where needed, which pushed me to grow as a musician. He’s highly knowledgeable in the fundamentals and also has great innovative and creative ideas that he’s happy to share! I would definitely recommend getting lessons from Mike!
Ethan
Mike is an incredibly knowledgeable musician with a genuine knack for teaching. Mike catered our lessons to exactly the material I wanted to learn while helping me grow a deeper understanding of music theory in a way that was both highly informative and fun! I will absolutely be returning for more lessons and would recommend him to anyone looking to pick up the guitar for the first time or that wants to expand on their existing abilities
