Patient and flexible, moves at a pace that challenges you but doesnt push too hard which is a delicate balance!

Thank you!
Monte H.
Michael is a stickler for doing things right, but in a nice way. I feel that his mode of teaching is best, because it builds a solid foundation for further learning.
ELLIOT
After a brief intro, Mike explained where're going with his lessons. I was having some problems getting my fingers near certain fret areas he wanted me to work on, so he very kindly placed some colors tape where I'm to put my fingers. That helped a lot. Been practicing an hour per day, & I'm getting a bit better daily. I've got a long way to go, but with Mike's help I'll get there. ELLIOT

My lessons give you an immediate sense of accomplishment. Learning fundamentals of guitar, music and technique are important, but so is having fun. I strive to help every student have fun while learning and to set achievable goals for each lesson. I don’t just teach you how to play the guitar - I show you how to find your inner musical voice and how to cultivate it along with improvement of your technical ability so that you may enjoy the personal self-expression that learning the guitar can offer you.

About Jeremy

I am a professional guitarist, singer and recording artist. I have taught studio and classroom guitar lessons for over 35 years and many of my students now work as professional musicians in the music and film industries. My studies include 3 years in the Jazz Performance program at the Wisconsin

Selena
I worked with Jeremy in my capacity as a writer for the Shepherd Express newspaper in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For this alternative weekly, I wrote an "Off the Cuff" (Q&A-style article with Milwaukeeans of note) featuring his wife and business partner, Julie, regarding their SuperStars Camp. Jeremy helped coordinate our communication and furnished me with information about their wonderful program. During this process, Jeremy was prompt, efficient and helpful in his communication. I believe that these qualities would translate to many work areas. Likewise, I believe his management of the SuperStars Camp--which provides a 2-week, multi-disciplinary arts experience for young people with special needs as well as typically developing individuals--speaks highly to his character and commitment to the health and growth of our local community. Based on my experience working with Jeremy, I would recommend him for similar positions.
Brianna
Jeremy is an amazing teacher! He strikes the perfect balance between offering a good challenge and making the lesson accessible to the learner. Jeremy is an extremely patient, kind and caring instructor who accomplishes the creation of a fun and comfortable learning environment. This allows the student to spend the entirety of their energy and focus on improving their skills. He always takes into account the learner's interests, feelings and opinions, providing a thoroughly individualized experience.
Joshua Benson
Very good instructor! He gives you goals and guides you in the right direction wether you're brand new at guitar or have a little experience. Highly recommend him to help advance your playing and put it in the right direction.

I have been teaching guitar for 10 years. I specialize in working with beginners, and love to work with children. Whatever style of music you enjoy, I want you to start learning songs right away and having fun. Then we can see how those songs are built, learning musiv theory to broaden your musical horizons.

About Kellen

Kellen has been a fantastic and knowledgeable bass teacher. I came into this with no background in music whatsoever but his teaching process is very simple and easy to grasp. He got a feel for what I did and didn’t know within 15 minutes on the first day & jumped right into improving the relevant skills I needed to learn next. Every lesson I learn something completely new and there is no wasted time. If you want to be pushed to become a better bass player in a very easygoing and welcoming environment, Kellen is the teacher for you.
Fred Z.
Kellen is a gifted instructor. As an adult learner I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was impressed with his structured and thoughtful approach to creating an excellent foundation and building skills.

Online Guitar Teacher

Hi, I’m Norman, and I teach guitar and all other fretted instruments. I have maintained a weekly schedule of about 40 studio and online students since 2010. Lessons with me are fun, streamlined, and filled with music.

My students can play their instruments well, and they know their chords, scales, arpeggios, songs, and other compositions. Using the state-of-the art music learning theory I studied at Eastman School of Music, performers gain the confidence to play in solo recitals, or with a group, or even to teach others to play, too.

About Norman

I have been teaching other people to play musical instruments since the moment I got home from my first music store guitar lesson. And while I am fortunate that teaching has always come naturally to me, I am very grateful that my degrees in music performance, music education, and instructional desi

"William is my first guitar teacher. As daunting as it can be to learn an instrument, he created a comfortable experience for me. He's incredibly talented and his love for music truly shows (which is inspiring). I initially started with the desire to learn jazz and William opened my eyes to explore other genres that integrate with jazz. Im excited to continue to learn and grow with music. I highly recommend anyone at any level to take lessons with William.

Thank you, William!"

He caters his teaching style according to you and your skill level, which was exactly what I was looking for as an intermediate player who didn't need to go over the basics or start learning theory.

"Will is a fantastic teacher, coach, and mentor. I coach elementary and middle school basketball and really appreciated Will's combination of knowledge, patience, and ability to connect with each student by adjusting his approach.

Not only did I learn a great deal about playing guitar practically, music theory, and how to put it all together, but I also learned a great deal about larger life topics from a very caring and fun individual.

Will get's my highest recommendation for beginning and intermediate students. I not only took guitar from him, but also banjo, bass, and vocal lessons as well."

"I've had the pleasure of learning from a couple of good teachers in my time. These were instructors with a clear fervor for music and a deft hand at instruction. Then there's Jared. With a calm and joyful persistence, one that not only holds onto an organic passion for music but one that also understands the unique challenges of the pupil, he guides the student through inevitable missteps and atonal chaos with a firm grace. His warmth and humor, coupled with a serious depth of music knowledge, are a must for the aspiring musician or the hobbyist. Whether your aims include songwriting, composition, or just plucking away in the garage, Jared's bespoke formula works. And, it's a joy while one partakes.

Best medicine I ever had!"

Once you've found the guitar that's right for you, it's time to find the right lessons for you. Finding the right instructor, one whose teaching style matches your learning style is just as important as finding the right instrument.

Many people find that they benefit more from one-on-one instruction and love the convenience of flexible scheduling.

Another benefit of in-home lessons is that it removes the stress associated with making mistakes in front of other people, which can often interfere with the learning process.

Once you’ve learned a song or two by taking guitar lessons in Charlotte, there are organizations, like the Charlotte Folk Society, (http://www.folksociety.org/) where you can find others to play and practice with. They even have a musical instrument lending library so you can try out other instruments! They also offer musical scholarships to some of their music workshops. Romare Bearden Park offers a wide range of musical entertainment every Wednesday from 6 to 9 pm from May through September.Whatever your preference- jazz, rock, country, or Carolina beach music- all are represented. Once you’ve gained a little confidence, you might even consider volunteering your time and talent for one of these events.

In addition to increasing creativity and brain power, music also has healing properties. There are organizations like Arts For Life (http://www.artsforlifenc.org/) that bring the healing power of music to those facing serious illnesses and disabilities.

Learning to play a musical instrument like the guitar is an investment not only in our own quality of life, but that of our communities as well. Through music, we can all experience a deeper level of enjoyment during our personal pursuit of happiness, and share that enjoyment with others.
