Private Guitar Teacher

I tried to teach guitar in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play lead guitar, or how to finger pick. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

About John

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me. Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me,

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

Curtis has been a great instructor for me. Curtis listens ,encourages and teaches in away that I am making progress each week on skills like strumming ,timing, and rhythm . The bottom line is that I truly look forward to my lesson every week with Curtis and I think you will too.

Curtis is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging. He teaches the type of songs you want to learn and not some song from a guitar guidebook. My first lesson was two hours and it quickly went by. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun and am looking forward to my next lesson. If you are in search of a guitar instructor, I would highly recommend him.

I perform six nights a week in Las Vegas and have used what I have learned through performance to inspire countless students.

After our first lesson, I will then develop a plan, including exercises, songs, and a sample practice schedule that will get you where you want to be if you put in the time and effort!

Lessons will be typically broken into sections of harmony, technique and tune learning. Although, this is flexible, depending on the student.

I understand that every student learns differently and has different interests.

Having taught hundreds of students, all from different backgrounds and age ranges, I have the experience and ability to custom-tailor lessons to your needs.

Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

"Russell is an amazing guitar teacher! He continuously makes the guitar lessons with my son fun and exciting which is extremely important for an active 9 year old. Russell is a patient and dedicated teacher. My son took a couple of lessons with another teacher prior to Russell and was not inspired to continue with his lessons. With Russell, my son is motivated and excited to demonstrate his progress. He has started to venture into drafting his own lyrics and matching them to guitar chords. As a parent, it is very rewarding to see your child take such interest in an instrument, in part due to his great guitar teacher."

"Jeff is a great teacher who helps you learn the guitar step-by-step with lots of great tips!

I started to learn guitar from Jeff when I was in the 5th grade and I have never regretted it. He has helped me improve so much that I can now solo off of songs and dissect popular songs to learn by myself. It's always so fun to play guitar with him, and he is always encouraging. He also teaches at my home which is really convenient. I always look forward to lessons to show him how I have improved. He is also really funny and entertaining. He has a lot of knowledge on guitar and music in general. Guitar has been a big part of my life and so has Jeff. I owe him all my thanks for teaching me how to enjoy and utilize the guitar beyond just learning chords and progressions."
