Country guitar uses bass runs, various picking styles, and simple chord strums. I have taught this style of guitar playing for over 20 years. I also was in several country bands--served as a lead and rhythm guitarist.

About Dee
*** Travel Equipment ***
Books. Students must have their own instrument (keyboards are acceptable for taking piano lessons). I always council students on brand, quality of instrument they are purchasing before they buy it.

*** Specialties *** I have been a public school music educator for over 28 years, have taught private music lessons for over 30 years. I have taught band, orchestra, and choir which enables me to teach many instruments and voice. I also have been a language and reading tutor for over 6 years and have worked with students with special needs for over 10 years. I studied classical guitar with master guitarist, Christopher Parkening, at Montana State University where I graduated with a B.M.E. I also did graduate work at MSU in composition. I am completing a Masters Degree in Teacher Leadership currently at Gran
d Canyon University. I teach Suzuki piano and violin. I am an accomplished composer/songwriter with many published and recorded songs and instrumental works through ASCAP. I endeavor to make learning fun, and enjoy teaching students of all ages!

Online student requirements: A fast, reliable COMPUTER; HIGH SPEED INTERNET (at least 400 kbps); SKYPE software; WEBCAM (preferably HD); MICROPHONE (most laptops or tablets have mikes built in). Be sure your camera is focused on you and your instrument, if applicable.

I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.

Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

Learn all of the popular country songs you hear on the radio today!

About Chris
My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life.

The best lesson that I've personally learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument then you've stopped growing musically. Personally, I've also learned that I enjoy sharing my knowledge of music with others and exposing students to new techniques and concepts.

I strongly believe that these traits are the most important aspects of teaching music to others. No matter how advanced my playing skills might progress, I’ll always be able to relate to any type of student because I’m still learning something new everyday!

I have been taking lessons from Chris for 5 years. He is very open to learn and teach all styles of music. in turn, allowing me learn and play music I though i never would. His guidance in "the technology" of music is also greatly appreciated.
The learning experience with Chris is top notch, never an issue with communication or punctuality.Always able to move around his busy schedule for the "adult" student.
I want to thank Chris for allowing to find my "Soul Mustard" He is the best you can find

I have been playing guitar (self taught) for about 25 years, just not very well. I was looking for a teacher that could help me fill in the music theory gaps. As well as help me formulate a meaningful practice plan that will get me over my hump. I gotta say Scott has hit the nail on the head every lesson. He first listened.. and as a result has delivered an eye opening and inspiring lesson every time. I highly recommend Scott for guitarists of all levels. He knows his STUFF!! Better yet, he knows how pull what YOU need from what he knows and deliver it effectively.

About Brody H.

Want to impress all the girls with your skills? Do you get envious every time a guy named Chad starts strumming Wonderwall at Suzy's backyard bonfire? Well then I've got GOOD NEWS for you! You can be better than Chad with a few simple steps, and I'll show you how!

Want to just learn chords and play simple songs to impress your parents who have never been proud of you? I'm your guy!

Want to learn in depth music theory and become a huge snob that can't enjoy anything on the radio? I'm your hook up!

Whatever you want to learn, I can give you the tools to succeed! (At least, more than Chad...)

Fair priced lessons with a hint of comedy, what else could you ask for?

About Brody
Music has always been a huge passion of mine. I attended the Ohio State University, playing guitar in the Jazz program.

Most of my time is spent either composing and arranging songs for my online content, or performing in venues with my band. Performance is a huge part of my life, and I think learning to perform in front of a crowd is just as essential as learning the notes themselves. It builds character and helps to provide confidence to a person in lieu of nervous, anxious thoughts.

If there's one thing I would want to see more of in this world, it would be people performing what they love. I've always felt that music can create an unspoken bond between people that can't be felt through any other medium. That's why, more than anything, I want to be able to share my love and knowledge of music with as many people as possible so t
hat the world can become more harmonious.

Brody was there at my most important formative years as a guitarist. His ideas and methods took what I had learned on my own and helped me turn it into something cohesive and musical. I would highly recommend lessons from Brody.

About Sandi
Hey there,
I have been teaching guitar for over 16 years and have taught thousands of satisfied students in person and online. When you get started with guitar lessons, you will begin by learning the basics of the instrument including proper holding and playing position, rhythm, scales and all your beginner chords. Once you get the basics down, we will move into learning some of your favorite songs in any genre.
If you have been playing guitar for a while and would like to brush up on your skills and/or improve your singing, I can help you with that also.

About Chris M.

What makes my lessons unique is rather than follow a strict curriculum where I just teach the student a bunch of songs they don’t want to learn. I cater to the interests and needs of the student. So if you want to write songs we will practice creative exercises, if you want to learn covers to play in a band or solo act we will learn the songs you want to learn. I will teach at your skill level and go at whatever pace you feel comfortable with so that I can maximize your learning experience!

About Chris
My name is Chris, I have been playing music for 10 years now! It is definitely my passion! I like all genres of music so you will not be judged by your interest. I am always continuing to learn new things myself and have definitely experienced the the journey from beginner to where I am now. So don’t be afraid to make mistakes that is all part of the learning process. I am willing to customize my lessons to your interests so if you want to learn something just ask! Feel free to ask any questions before we begin!

My lessons are tailored to the student. I believe the most effective way to learn anything is by enjoying it. You want to learn your favorite song, you got it. Want to learn some smooth jazz chords to jam with, no problem. Need to learn some scales for soloing, cool. Whatever it is you need from me I do my absolute best effort to provide. On top of all this, I have many skills and techniques that I have learned over the years that will help you significantly in becoming comfortable with your instrument. I guarantee that after at least three months of regular lessons and practice, you will be able to give your own lessons to your own students. If you are serious about learning how to play then I look forward to getting to know what type of style you want me to teach you.
Cheers!

About Julian
I have been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, however, i didn't really get "good" at playing until I was 12. I joined my first band at 15 and played my first "gig" at 16. By 19 I had completed a West Coast Tour and was working as a guitar instructor for a Music studio. Currently I am a college student and do not have as much time to teach. I have taught other subjects as well and I am majoring in teaching English. I have traveled and preformed abroad and taught guitar and english abroad. Aside from lessons i have many experiences that you could learn from as well. I am an easy going teacher and mainly want you to enjoy yourself. If you aren't enjoying the lessons, I would rather you find something that you are passionate about. If you want to learn but think it's too hard, let me tell you, that with practice, you can do anything.
I am here to help you no matter what so if you want to learn and are passionate about it, you will learn and I will do everything i can to make that happen. Like I have said to many students: I guarantee that in at least the first month you'll be able to play your favorite song, the second you'll be able to write your own song, and by at least 3 months you could teach the beginners the fundamentals of guitar. Look forward to helping you on this exciting journey of learning an instrument.
Cheers!
