Ronald Ray S.
My name is Ronald S. At the age of 9, I started playing the guitar for my Father's Gospel Group who is a great Gospel D.J. (Big Clyde). Through the years I have taken several guitar courses from several instructors. In the last seven months I have taken instructions from Mr. Christian, I have excelled further and have learned more than all my other adventures.

Micheal's business based environment in an open studio type classroom is a must. In Micheal's unique style of teaching you not only learn to play the guitar, but he also instructs you in song with a spirit of being well satisfied.

As shoppers pass through the store they enjoy the sounds of students playing their guitars following the guidance of Mr. Christian. This also gives his students a chance to perform in front of other people giving them a finer definitions for the art of music. If you are looking for a music instructor, one who focuses in on your difficult areas and searches for improvement to make you the best musician possible in all areas, or if you are just looking to learn and have lots of fun, then Mr. Christian is your contact. Please visit him at one of his jam sessions..

"Learn the rules like a pro, then break them as an artist" - Pablo Picasso

As a music producer, mix engineer and artist, I understand the need for proficiency as well as the artistry. My approach to teaching is customized to each individual as we are not all the same. I pay close attention to how each person learns and work with what the student can excel in. When needed we will do drills or work on theory or break down your technique to overcome any obstacles. With my industry expertise, I can help you become a proficient musician and help develop your style and artistry.

I look forward to working with you!

About David

David is a multi-instrumentalist, music producer, and mix engineer who works with artists at varying levels developing their skills, creativity, and music. Over the course of nearly 2 decades playing in bands and working in music production, David knows the skillset and mindset necessary to perform

Kimberly
I'm re-learning the piano with David and he has changed my relationship to music for the better. After only a few lessons with David I've gotten a greater understanding of music theory than I had in my few years of early piano training. He is patient and flexible with his style of teaching. If it's taking me awhile to understand a concept he's good at explaining it more clearly. I definitely recommend him for learning the piano!
Christian J.
David is a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist and producer. I was introduced when he recorded an EP for my band and since then, we've spent many an evening talking about performing, recording, teaching and making music. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgable about his craft. I always learn something new, interesting and immediately applicable to my playing when I work with him. I've had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of his students and they have always been exceptionally professional and prepared. I highly recommend David for lessons in whatever discipline you request - the crossover knowledge from all of his experiences will be invaluable to you.

Online Guitar Teacher

The guitar has been around me my whole life. I picked it up as a hobby in high school in the late 90's and never looked back. It's become a way to express myself, share my gifts with people and also, fortunately enough, make a living. I love teaching students of all ages and interest levels; whether you just want to learn a couple of chords to play around the campfire, or work towards being a pro-level lead guitar player.

About Chris

Chris grew up hearing his dad play guitar around the house and at live shows. He “caught the bug” around age 13 and hasn’t stopped playing since! He’s been teaching guitar since 2003 and received his Bachelor of Arts in Music at North Central University in 2008 where he studied jazz, blues, rock, c

Renee
My 15 year-old son started guitar this summer. He has truly enjoyed working with Chris. Chris is patient and encouraging, as well as being a cool guy that my son looks up to.
Helen
My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Brian
Our kids have loved working with Chris. He picks songs they're excited to play, teaches them patiently, and has a lot of fun with them. They've made a ton of progress since they started with Chris, and they're always excited to see him!

Online Guitar Teacher

Hello,
My name is Kyusup or "Chris" and I'm a singer-songwriter, pianist, guitarist, bassist, producer, and sound engineer. I'm completely self-taught in all of the above mentioned categories for over a decade. I know exactly what you really need to know and all the questions you'll have.

I don't make you do tedious homework, exercises, and sheet reading. (I can also read music but I believe its only important for documenting, not as much for being creative. I've also majored in popular music studies, jazz performance, and sound engineering in order to justify the knowledge I've accumulated prior.

I write, perform, produce, mix/master and distribute all of my own music so all of that knowledge comes intertwined with the practicality of the knowledge that I will teach you.

I was glad I choose to do my lessons with Kyusup, he was very patient, knowledgeable and able to explain concepts very clearly. With me having no experience with the piano, I was worried I wouldn't understand anything. Kyusup is very attentive and was quick to judge my level of knowledge and take from there. Having online lessons via video calls, made everything so easy by being able to work from the comfort of my own home. He is straight forward and organized so everything felt like a breeze and was very easy to learn.

Working with Kyusup was very easy and informative. With me having no experience when it comes to the piano, he really took the time to understand what I wanted to get out of the lessons and was quick to judge my level of knowledge and take it from there. We did the lessons via video call which was very convenient for me. I am so glad I choose Kyusup, as he was very patient, knowledgeable and able to explain concepts very clearly. I feel if there were any doubts, or questions he was always able to clear them up and explain which made everything so work so smoothly.

"I have taken one lesson so far with James, with many more to come hopefully. James has been nothing but motivational to get my guitar and singing to the next level. It seems he truly wants to see each and every one of his students succeed and believes that if we tell ourselves that we're the best, that we might just become the best. I am extremely optimistic that my playing is going to dramatically improve from James' lessons as after only one lesson I have learned more than I have self teaching myself over the past year!

I am really looking forward to my next lesson...James is great to work with. Very personable, and a very nice guy. Can't wait till Tuesday!"

"Keith is very knowledgeable, patient and methodical. By letting me play a few notes and asking a few questions, he already knew where I should start and had the whole study plan figured out. His lessons are very productive but not in an overwhelming way. After two classes, I actually already feel I've improved significantly. I'm getting more and more comfortable playing to musical notes, which I tried to teach myself several times but all failed. I finally feel I'm on the right track!"

"Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa"

Guitar Lessons in Charlotte

There are as many good reasons for learning to play the guitar as there are places that you can take guitar lessons in Charlotte. Whether it’s to be able to entertain family and friends, develop self-discipline, or earn a living with music, learning to play an instrument can increase your quality of life in many ways. A number of studies show that it can even make you smarter!

Charlotte is a music-loving city, and there are several establishments that can make your transition to musician as smooth and seamless as possible. Before you look for guitar lessons in Charlotte, here are a few places you can go to find the right guitar for you. Howren Music and Sound, in addition to selling instruments, offers a full range of services including rentals and repairs. That means that before making an investment in a new guitar, you can try playing a few different types first. Another store that offers rental instruments is Music 49. If the cost of a new instrument is holding you back, Sam Ash Music also has a website that specializes in high quality used instruments.

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. With in-home lessons, rather than missing lessons due to schedule changes, people have the option to reschedule the lesson for another time. Consistency is an important factor in learning any new skill. 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.
