I’ve been taking lessons from Kevin for about 2 months. Before that I’d been kind of aimlessly playing around with guitar. I was playing by myself for about 20 years and basically had no timing and rhythm. I’m not a funk master yet but Kevin has given me tools that have greatly improved my timing and for the first time actually believing that I’m going to do this. Thanks
Asam
I started taking lessons with Kevin about a month ago I took lessons when I was a kid, and remember some things, but my hands do not yet so what my head is telling them. Kevin has been great, adjusting to what I already know and adding a lot of music theory, which I never had learned before. Highly recommend Kevin.
Jo
I started learning Ukulele with Kevin and then picked up Guitar lately, Kevin has a systematic way of teaching, instead of covering each and every chords, he summarizes them by different shapes, and also their variations, so you can memorize the basics and find their "relative" chords easier. He also taught music theories, how each chord is formed, and if you want to play a specific song, he's also glad to help on finding the exact chord and transfer them into different notes that suits you. Definitely have your notebook ready since there's a lot to learn. The harder thing for myself is with the online class, it's not as efficient as a face-to-face one, I also tend to be less motivated to practise but you ought to just find your own motivation!

Guitar is my main squeeze. I love to help people enjoy the instrument as much as I do. learn to shred a rock solo, fingerpick a folk song, or transcribe miles davis. learn to play what you hear on records without resorting to you tube instructional videos (wink). or if you are already an accomplished musician, enhance your ability to employ techniques like chord weaving on the guitar, craft better solos, write more sophisticated chord progressions, etc

Esther is amazing! My daughter enjoys her piano lessons.
Jacey
Mrs. Esther is a really kind, patient, and honest piano teacher. She helped me work through my mistakes and told me what I needed to work on in order to improve. Her way of teaching is effective and it helped me gain more knowledge about piano and the techniques of being a good pianist. She is very caring and understands when I'm in a difficult situation and she always encourages me to keep going. I enjoyed all the experiences I had with Mrs. Esther and the unique personality she had. For the past 9 years, I have learned a lot about music and the hard work that goes into playing the piano. I will never regret having Mrs. Esther as my piano teacher and the adventures I had.
Lawrence
Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

Learn Easy Guitar Songs with Guitar Lessons Online

Music is one of the most commonly shared interests around the world. Though different cultures have different styles of music that are unique to their region, there are many genres and approaches to music that are shared all around the globe.

Though the increased connectedness of today’s world makes it easy for people in different countries and continents to share music with each other, this is not a new practice. In fact, one of the primary ways that music has been shared between cultural and ethnic groups over the centuries is the spread of musical instruments.

Most of the instruments we’re familiar with today descended from an ancient version. This is true of such popular instruments as the piano, the violin, the trumpet, and even the guitar, among many others. The guitar has a long and rich history in several different countries that eventually molded it into what it is today: an extremely important aspect of multiple genres of music across the world.

Why Should I Learn to Play the Guitar?

There are many distinct reasons why the guitar is one of the best instruments to learn, especially for people who are new to music and want to learn something unique. The guitar is commonly seen in all types of modern media, meaning that most people are at least somewhat familiar with a guitar’s construction and method of playing even if they’ve never picked one up before.

With this advantage, you can begin your first guitar practice session already having a sense of where your hands should go, what the different finger placements of your left hand might do to the pitch that’s sounding with your right, and the distinct tone you can expect from the instrument. These important details will give you a huge advantage and make learning the guitar a much smoother experience as opposed to other, less popularly understood instruments.

Another benefit of the guitar is its convenient and portable size. Though there are many smaller instruments out there, such as the violin and the ukulele, their body size only allows a certain range of notes and can only produce a certain level of sound. The guitar’s larger body allows it to access a much more extensive note range and produce a full, rich sound that can travel hundreds of feet.

The guitar strikes a perfect balance between being big enough to support a hefty sound while not being so big that it’s difficult to carry around. The average person has no trouble carrying a guitar in its case and these instruments can fit easily into the trunk of a car or on your lap while riding public transportation.

By far, one of the most distinct benefits that learning easy guitar songs, chords, and notes can provide for musicians is the ability to play in just about any genre or style. Whether the song you’d like to learn is pop, rock, jazz, classical, or anything in between, it likely uses guitar or can easily use guitar in the place of another instrument. The guitar is an extremely expressive instrument that can create beautiful, emotional melodies one minute and strong, powerful chords the next. With the guitar, the repertoire possibilities are truly endless.

The Past, Present, and Future of Guitar

Guitar is so prevalent on the world stage today because of how widespread its basic design has been throughout the past several centuries. One of the first known stringed instruments similar in construction to the guitar is the European lute, and early forms of the guitar as we know it today have been dated back as early as the 16th century in Europe, particularly in Spain.

The earliest versions of the guitar were significantly smaller than the instrument is today, which likely had a huge impact on its sound. The guitar underwent a great deal of changes throughout the 16th to 19th centuries, particularly at the hands of Spanish luthiers, or guitar builders. Over time, what we know now as the classical guitar was formed, with a larger body than previous stringed instruments in order to create a bigger sound and nylon strings to allow the player to pluck distinctive notes.

Though the classical guitar was originally designed for classical Spanish music and is still used for this purpose today, the instrument was repurposed by other cultures for different styles of music. For example, the guitar was adopted by other European countries as well as the Americas for use in more relaxed folk music settings. Eventually, musicians began to experiment with steel strings on acoustic guitars to create a brighter, more metallic sound that wasn’t as soft and delicate as the original Spanish classical guitar.

As the tides of popular music began to change, so did the guitar. The first electric guitar was developed in the 1930s, and it’s no wonder that early rock ‘n’ roll was born soon after out of the soul and blues of the American South. Though the electric guitar became almost synonymous with rock music for many decades, the instrument continued to be used in several other popular genres including funk, pop, country, and many more.

Today, it’s difficult to find a genre that doesn’t use the guitar, whether acoustic or electric. As new music continues to change and evolve, so will the guitar and its common uses, and there’s no reason to suspect that the guitar will fall out of popularity anytime soon.

Learn Easy Guitar Songs at Your Own Pace with Individual Lessons

There are so many resources available today at the average person’s fingertips when it comes to learning guitar notes, easy guitar songs, and even more advanced chords and fingerings. Though it may seem tempting to forego private lessons and just teach yourself easy guitar songs and chords, you’re not likely to progress very far.

When you’re working on a new skill on your own, it’s extremely easy to experience burnout after a period of overworking yourself or simply leaving the skill behind due to your busy schedule. Working with an experienced guitar teacher online with TakeLessons will take away the pressure of having to program your own practice sessions and figure out what easy guitar songs you should focus on next.

Your online guitar teacher will structure your lessons in a way that is completely unique to you, the easy guitar songs and chords you want to learn, and the specific techniques that your teacher believes will get you there. This way, your guitar journey will be tailored to you at a pace that challenges you while also keeping you motivated and interested.

Finding the time to attend in-person guitar lessons can be difficult for adults with busy schedules, especially if you don’t live near any high-quality guitar teachers or don’t have access to reliable transportation. Plus, entering a professional guitarist’s home or studio can feel intimidating if you’re a beginner, which isn’t helpful for the learning process.

Guitar lessons online can offer you the exact same level and quality of one-on-one instruction as in-person lessons can. All you need is a device with a built-in microphone and camera and a working Internet connection. As long as you have these tools, your online guitar teacher will be able to check your fingerings, make sure you’re using proper technique, and give you helpful feedback on your performance of the easy guitar songs you’re working on.

"perfect fit..

I have been lessons for a little over a month and have significantly improved. I'm an adult student working 80-90 hrs a week, so with that in mind, the lesson load is doable and relaxed, but there is plenty of material each week to see the improvement in your skills. She also is approaching the lessons based on what I want to learn, not what a "by the letter" teacher thinks you should know. The studio location is not only chill but convient, literally around the corner. Highly recommend Indigo for anyone picking up a guitar."
