I have great luck with the black key approach for young beginners. Spoiler alert, the black keys are the pentatonic scale and sound great in any number of different combinations. I emphasize ear training, learning to read music, and also having fun.

Brian is great for kids and adults!

My 10-year-old showed interest in learning piano, and Brian is great! My 8-year-old thought it looked fun, so we added him, and Brian does a great job with him. In fact, my 40-something husband was so impressed, he signed up, too! Brian is terrific with all of them. Everyone is learning at his own speed and each is improving. Brian adeptly teaches according to skill, interest, aptitude, and attitude. I'm so impressed! I heartily recommend for anyone looking for a music teacher.

"Shauna is great, and I am grateful to have found her. My goal is to find my authentic voice, and her methods and expertise are perfectly suited to this purpose. She helps me understand how sound is made and moves through my body, where it is blocked and how to use it to truly express myself. I have greater awareness of my body, and of how sound connects me to my deepest self. I love my lessons and leave refreshed and energized!"

"Amanda is an outstanding teacher. She inspires and challenges me to play pieces I did not think I could play. She is able to take difficult passages and break them down step my step so I can learn how to play them properly. I am sure I would not be playing as I am now, if it weren’t for Amanda’s skilled teaching. She is also friendly, makes the lessons interesting and fun and is very professional. I have taken lessons both in person and on Skype and she excels in both modes."

"Jeff Stetson can take you anywhere you want to be as a musician

There are musicians and there are technicians.
I took weekly lessons from Jeff for 5 years and still go to him often for advice on song composition.
What I gained from Jeff, besides a true understanding of guitar playing fundamentals, is an understanding of how music "works"--the harmony behind it. From Jeff's instruction, I understand the theory of music--how scales are formed, how chords are built from these scales, and how to read and write all of it.
As a heavy rock fan, Jeff also helped me train my ear to hear the intricacies of jazz, which has taken my songwriting--both electric and acoustic--to a whole new level.
I strongly recommend Jeff Stetson to anyone who truly wants to learn how to play any stringed instrument, especially guitar, at any level. He will teach you how and/ or why depending on an individual's goals."

"Started with Jim Back in Feb 2015...Im in my 50's and didn't have a clue, my girl gave me a guitar for Christmas and new it was on my bucket list to learn, and learn I did with Jim. Patience and clear, no pressure lessons are what I got. All I wanted to do is sit in my yard and play something that sounded like something, lol.... I am slowly getting better and better as long as I keep to my practice and Jim is always there to help even when I am not in class so to speak. He answers you phone calls and texts if u have questions or forgot something, even sends videos if u need it... Glad I got on board with this guy and I am hoping for more and more enjoyment from my instrument...Give him a shot, I did and pretty sure you wont be disappointed"

Having a few guitar licks up your sleeve is super helpful when you're improvising. Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few of his favorite jazz guitar licks... Before we begin playing these jazz guitar licks, it's a good idea to get familiar with the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale is a more versatile and useful scale than you might think.
