About Bill G.

A style I really enjoy teaching classical guitar. Again, all levels are welcomed as students.
This is for more structured/compositional work on the instrument; and will require some sight reading and development of finger style playing. It helps to have a basic background in music for classical guitar/music, but can still be done at the beginner level.

It is with the utmost enthusiasm that I express my admiration for Bill's ability to make my first guitar lesson pleasant and comfortable (even when I know little to nothing about playing guitar). I am confident my future guitar lessons with Bill will provide me with solid guitar playing abilities, and will prove to be compelling and diversified.

I have zero background with playing ukulele but Bill made it easy to start.
If you're an adult looking to learn how to play guitar or ukulele but is hesitating because finding the right instructor/teacher is a bit of a task, try a lesson or two with this guy.

Beginners learn proper technique from the start,including posture,choice of instrument,warm-up exercises and drills that will stretch your abilities.You will learn the notes on each string,gradually combining more notes and strings by playing classical pieces from different composers.

My lesson was great. I’ve struggled for years to really get everything to come together, and I’m already starting to see and feel how Rick is, and will continue to, make that happen.

I would think the first lesson is always the hardest to start since as an instructor you don’t know what skill level you will be teaching. Trevor started the class asking what I wanted to accomplish and ended with lots of practice lessons for me to complete. Looking forward to more classes with him.

Adam is a teacher par excellence. I am self taught from a well known book. I was doing well I thought until I got stuck. Adam gently showed me where I erred and made great suggestions for me to move on correctly. I never felt rushed or “ put down.” Adam was patient, open for questions, encouraging, comforting. I know I need much help to correct and advance in guitar from matters such as tuning, restringing, reading, and other things too many to write about. I look forward to my next lesson with enthusiasm.

Since our first lesson I've been progressing nonstop. He's a great teacher for both learning songs and exploring the nuts and bolts of music.

I have been playing the guitar for 11 years, then started learning classical guitar approximately 5-6 years ago. As a recent graduate from Southeastern Louisiana University, I have been teaching guitar and ukulele lessons as well as classes since the spring of this year (2017). I hold a bachelor's degree in music performance with my primary instrument being the guitar.
I can help you to acquire a solid foundation of music theory knowledge. You can help to better understand music theory concepts if they are paired with guitar techniques to supplement them.
If you are a complete beginner, do not be afraid! I will help you to learn at a pace which is comfortable but still effective for you. These lessons will be focused and designed to fit YOUR needs. Let's learn together :)

Classical Guitar Lessons

The classical guitar, often referred to as the Spanish guitar, is the father of the modern-day guitar. Normally, the classical guitar is played with the fingers, rather than a pick, and uses nylon strings and a wider fretboard to allow for more complex fingering positions. The Spanish guitar has a beautiful rich tonal quality, and with proper technique, it creates an earthy yet romantic sound. Many instructors will teach you how to read classical guitar tabs, how to tune your guitar, proper classical guitar technique, Spanish guitar scales and will help you if you are looking at buying a classical guitar. In addition, our certified instructors here at TakeLessons are friendly and eager to help you learn to play the guitar. If you enroll in our classical guitar lessons, you will have the opportunity to learn and gain insight from seasoned professionals who love the classical guitar. Our mentors will be happy to share tricks and tips on how to play the classical guitar as well as provide you with the inspiration to continue working on your craft, especially since learning to play the instrument can be a bit challenging in the first few weeks. Check back here often as soon we will be posting articles such as “How Do I Choose a Classical Guitar,” “Easy Classical Guitar Music” and “Classical Guitar Tabs.” In the meantime, apply for classical guitar lessons in an area near you so that you can begin your new musical adventure.
