My first lesson with Ben was great. He got straight to what I was interested in learning and even helped me figure out the chords to a song I've been wanting to play. Can't wait to learn more :)

I have been playing, writing, and recording guitar for almost 23 years. Absolutely love it!

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient players.

I take teaching seriously, but definitely try to make it enjoyable for the student. I studied classical guitar in college, but was playing everything from Van Halen to Jazz to Country & Blues before that. Currently, I'd consider myself a flat out musical mutt...enjoying anything and everything. The love of guitar has also expanded to a multitude of instruments that I record, gig, & teach with.

I love working with musicians who want to grow and develop into the musician that they truly desire to be. Whether you are learning guitar to play in a band, work on your solo career, be able to play your favorite songs with friends and family together, or simply practice a healthy and productive hobby on your free time, my goals as your teacher are to help you feel comfortable expressing yourself with a guitar in your hands.

We will work through learning and playing songs, right-hand rhythm technique, left hand chord structures, playing with easy-feel, soloing and different scales, improvisation, and of course, music theory and the science behind how everything works up and down the guitar neck.

About Juan

I am an experienced musician, singer, and teacher. I have six years of performing and touring experience, and six years teaching private lessons as well as at the School Of Rock in Ballwin, MO. I like to work with my students on their specific needs/interests/desires as singers and musicians. Whether that is on technique, performance, extending range, learning songs, or simply feeling more comfortable with your singing voice and your performing abilities, I am happy to help you grow as a singer and musician.

Hello!,

Our lessons will be relaxed and fun. I take pride in tailoring my curriculum to the needs and goals of each individual student- This helps me make sure that you are learning at a pace that feels comfortable for you, yet challenging.

We will work together to develop both your musicianship and creativity. I am a firm believer in music being a healing and mind-opening practice. One of my primary goals while teaching is to give my students an outlet to express themselves in a healthy and meaningful way. Let's get started!

Topics we can focus on together:
- Theory
- Improvisation
- Strumming/finger-picking patterns
- How to sing and play at the same time
- Songwriting/Recording techniques
- Lyric Writing
- Stage Presence
- Exploring different musical genres

About Dayna

Hello!,

My classical training began at age 10, when I started to play the viola. From there, I was able to translate my musical skills to violin, guitar, piano, voice, composition, and songwriting.

Originally a biology major at SUNY Purchase College, I quickly became restless knowing that I was unable to focus on music enough. So, I switched it up, followed my passion, and began studying music theory and production. Since then, my life has been focused on teaching, performing, writing, and recording music- and I wouldn't have it any other way!
It's been quite a journey, and I can't wait to share all that I've learned along the way with you.

Whether you are just starting out, or are looking to further the knowledge you already have, I will meet you at where you are, and help you to achieve your personal goals.

Together we can work o

n technique, theory, improvisation, ear-training, songwriting, and more!

Bryon
"Grant is great. The group guitar session is a hard setting to teach, as there are different skill-sets of the students, but he does it in stride with good
humor and flexibility."
...
Colleen
"I've only had my first lesson, and I'm a complete novice with the guitar (I'm an adult with some limited musical background). Noah asked me about my goals
and musical interests so he could tailor the class to meet my needs. He taught me how to tune the guitar before getting into chords, finger placement, strumming technique, and reading the tabs. Throughout the class, he was incredibly patient, encouraging, and explained everything very clearly without over-complicating the topics. He gave me written "homework" to practice (which I now understand how to read!!). I'm really psyched for my next lesson and pleased that I chose Noah for my instructor."

Steve
"Frank’s skill, experience and love for music make him a highly qualified guitar teacher. Since taking guitar lessons, I have seen various areas of my play
ing improve. It doesn't matter if you are just starting out or are a little more advanced, Frank's teaching will take your guitar playing to a new level."

Mike
"Great teacher. Patient and effective. GREAT with kids!"
Samantha
"Eric is a really great teacher. He has so much knowledge and experience and really listens to his students and is flexible with the music he teaches you.
I walked away from these lessons with a greater understanding of the guitar as an instrument and lots of practice exercises to help increase my skill set. I'd recommend him to guitar players of all levels."
...
Helen
"I've always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, and finally decided to pursue lessons a few months ago. After not having much luck with other teachers
, I was lucky to find Ahmad and I am really getting the kind of instruction I've been looking for. Ahmad's lessons are extremely well-prepared and are thoughtful of my goals and learning style. I'm moving at a pace that is comfortable for me, yet challenges me to make improvements with each lesson. As an instructor, Ahmad is super patient and seems to genuinely care that I am both having fun and also meeting my goals as a student. Also, Ahmad is just a really fun person! My friend and I went to check out one of his British Band Shaughnessy's shows, and it was just crazy fun! I'd give him 10 stars if I could! :D"
...
Christina
"Jeff's love and passion for music are awe-inspiring. He hears and feels the vibrations and sounds that radiate from each of the strings when a particular
chord is played. If you are an impatient beginner like me, you will want to be playing at the Grand Ole Opry after two lessons. Realistically, you won't be Nashville-ready after just two lessons. However, in an effort to nurture your stage dreams, Jeff records in-session videos that serve as extra instruction until the next lesson. The in-session videos are a review of the day's lesson and they are great for practicing on your own. Jeff goes above and beyond to accommodate his students. He researches the genre or type of music of interest along with pertaining artists and he tailors the sessions accordingly. Simply put: Jeff Colvin is a rockstar of an instructor."

Nicole
"Had a great experience here! Ben is a patient and skilled teacher whom I would recommend to anyone regardless of their skill level."
