Come one, come all! Time to learn the guitar! If you have been playing for many years and want to break out of a rut, or if you just got your first guitar and suspect that there is a better way to learn than trying to sort through the haphazard offerings on youtube, I welcome you. Sign up for a lesson and come on over. I think we will have fun and you be happy to find yourself learning to play this great instrument. Stick around and you will be surprised at how far you can take it.

About Luke
I majored in music at Berea College, then went on to The University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where I completed a Masters degree in guitar performance and served as the graduate assistant to the guitar department.

For the past ten years I have earned a living performing and teaching guitar. I am a certified Suzuki instructor, and I've held teaching positions at Winston Salem State University and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, along with at least half a dozen other schools and institutions. I've been featured on other artists' records, and received a grant to release an album of my own songs. I regularly perform in a wide variety of bands and ensembles.

I love to teach, and over the years I have taught hundreds, maybe even thousands of lessons. Having learned something from each and every one
of my students, I am now at a point where I excel at honing in on the individual interests and learning styles of whoever comes to me for help. There are many ways to learn guitar. The best one is the one that engages and inspires you the most. That said, there are also music fundamentals that we all need to know. My joy as a teacher lies in finding a way for you to master the fundamentals while at the same time following your personal bliss and intuition. We plot the course together, combining your curiosity and enthusiasm with my years of experience.

I also love working with kids. While they are having fun jamming, I discretely provide them with the technique and musicianship they'll need to excel in any musical environment, whether it's conservatory study or playing in a great band.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your enthusiasm is the key to your success, so my lessons are tailored to the interests and abilities of each student. That said, my classical background and dedication to effective teaching inform everything I do.

All of my students learn Music Fundamentals:
-Technique (habits of movement)
-Theory (how music works)
-Aural skills (hearing pitches, chords and rhythms clearly)

Many of my students use books. There are hundreds of great books these days, and I will work with students from any book they choose. Listed here are the books I regularly use. They all deliver great results:

-Aaron Shearer "Leaning The Classic Guitar"
-Will Schmidt and Greg Koch "The Hal Leonard Method"
-Joe Pecoraro "Read This First"
-David Oaks "Music Reading For Guitar"
-William Leavitt "A Modern Method For Guitar"
-Mateo Carcassi "Melodic and Progressive Studies, Opus 60"
-Leo Brouwer "Simple Studies"

Many of my students prefer to work without a book, and that is a great option too. These students learn scales, chords and theory and develop a repertoire of songs. I will show you how to play any song you'd like to learn. You can also work on writing your own songs or compositions, or improvising in any context, be it jazz, blues, Indian raga or flamenco.

Singing is also encouraged!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio: music stands, extensive library of all kinds of music, great sound system and ability to stream any song, several guitars, recording equipment, footstools, keyboard and percussion instruments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I'll bring my guitar and books, accessories as needed.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in versatility. I regularly play gigs doing classical, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and world music. All of these genres have a place in my heart, and I've devoted years to learning to play and teach them well.

I am equally polyamorous when it comes to the various things musicians do. I love to sing pop songs, dissect jazz lines, delve into expressive groupings with classical pieces, drill scales and arpeggios, you name it. Reading, improvising, composing and notating, transcribing and playing by ear, memorization, classical technique, blues technique, bluegrass technique, theoretical analysis... hit me up for any of that, or whatever else interests you.

My son is 12 years old and prior to starting lessons with Luke had never played the guitar at all. Luke is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor. He communicates well and tailors each session to the student's learning status. We are 3 lessons in and I'm very impressed so far. Thanks Luke!!!

About Brett
I have been teaching guitar and bass since 1996 and have taught students of all ages, skill levels, and in all genres. All of my lessons are student-centered meaning that I design the lessons based on the specific skills and topics that the student wants to learn. I won't waste your time showing you complex jazz riffs if you tell me you want to learn how to play punk rock! Every player needs to learn to develop their own style and I am here to guide you in your musical journey.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer 30 or 60 minute one-on-one lessons, and I am also available for guitar, bass, and music classes for groups.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Various Guitars, Basses, and Amps.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar or bass for my use, notebook papers, and pens/pencils. I expect the student to have their own guitar, and a
dedicated notebook to keep the lesson notes in.

*** Specialties ***
I am able to teach guitar, bass, and songwriting in all styles and genres with equal ability.

I like students to have fun while they learn. I start out teaching a few basic chords and some simple songs to match. As the student progresses, we work on a mix of material the student selects and I pick a few to stretch the students skills.

About Jeneen
I'm a singer and songwriter with a BA in Music Ed and I teach in Astoria, Queens. I love teaching children and adults and helping them explore their talents. I teach lessons in voice (singing), guitar, piano and songwriting. The age range for my current student roster is 6 years to 65 years of age but I'm open to all ages. Studying music can be beneficial at any time in a persons life and is a wonderful form of expression. Some students come to me for audition preparation for high school or college. Some come because they've always wanted to learn how to sing better at karaoke. Others want to play guitar or piano for family functions or want to write a song but aren't sure where to start. Some want to pursue a career in theater and the arts.

From the very first lesson, I gear the music towards each student's specific goals an
d preferences. From pop music, to jazz standards, to Broadway show tunes and classical arias, the lesson is tailored to the student's interests and desires. I spend some time in each lesson focusing on technique and proper warm-ups. I also ask lot's of questions to find out what the student is having challenges with in particular. Lessons range from 30, 45 and 60 minutes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can copy music and worksheets. The student will have to buy a few books and a tape recorder. If a student would like a voice lesson, a piano or keyboard would be helpful.

*** Specialties ***
I've been singing and writing songs for the past 9 years. I've released 3 CD's and toured performing my own music and a variety of other styles.

ow your goals and get YOU to where you want to be.

Some of my guitar influences are Van Halen, Steve Vai, ACDC, Guns ‘n Roses, Led Zeppelin and James Brown just to name a few. I've shared the stage with Eddie Money, David Lee Roth, Great White and several other national touring artists. I have a passion for music and love to share this with others willing to learn the instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
Some example lessons would be as follows:

I target each student uniquely. No cookie-cutter lesson plans! I learn your short and long-terms goals and set the lesson material appropriately to help the student achieve their goals. Lessons absolutely have to be fun, so if you like to laugh and have a good time while learning guitar, this is right up your alley!

I use both written and media formats for my lessons. For example, the written material may include chords, modes or scales while the MP3 files (which I send via email) will cover the application of this material and can be used by the student for reference at home. Often the MP3 files include the material performed at a very slow speed and then again at normal speed to help the student understand the lesson and material.

All you need is a positive attitude and a desire to make music and you will be able to do it with a smile!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Studio: couches, music stands, recording equipment, amps and guitars, chord diagrams, room for parents to sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar for the lessons although I expect that the student will need one of their own to practice

*** Specialties ***
Rock Guitar, Pop, Top 40

About Richard
I started learning how to play the guitar around 15 years old. I have over 36 years experience. I took lessons for three years of reading, writing tab and notations, chord charts, melodies, classical guitar, soloing, taping, techniques, song learning, ear training and transposing. From the songs, I've learned to play the rhythm and solo. Over the years, I self taught myself guitar by listening to my favorite artist. I played in local bands for many years and performed in venue's in my home town. When I play in bands, I'm always labeled the lead guitar player of the group. I would help everyone out with their parts and timing. I have recording experience in the studio as much as my home studio using Steinburg's Cubase. I took a music theory course and received a certificate.

My time with Rich was really strong. I took lessons from Rich for a short while when living in Connecticut. The time I spent with him was VERY helpful to me as a novice guitar player. Rich has an unbelievable knowledge of the instrument and is quite an accomplished player. He is a really strong instructor and genuinely wants his students to get better.

In short, Rich is a very talented instructor/player and I would definitely take lessons from him again.

Thanks for dropping buy! I have been playing guitar for about 6 years and have taken 2 years of intensive music theory. Our lessons will consist of teaching everything from basic chord shapes and scales, to learning chord progressions and the Nashville number system, to even reading some music as well.

About Cameron
Hi! My name is Cameron, I live in Greensboro, NC but am originally from the Burlington area. I moved here when I came on staff at a local church to lead worship and fell in love with the city. I am currently engaged, but am getting married in June to the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I've been playing music all my life; I started out on drums when I was five, but as I got older I wanted to experiment with other instruments, so in high school I started getting into singing and playing the guitar and writing my own songs. In college, I took a lot of music theory classes which helped equip me and gain a better understanding of music. Aside from lessons and leading worship, I also do a lot of producing, making beats for artists as well as doing some recording. I am currently working on a debut album as well. In my free time, I drive
for Uber and stream on Twitch. I look forward to meeting with you and teaching you!
