Private Guitar Teacher

Guitar is my first and primary instrument. I love it so much because it is one of the most diverse instruments in the world. With that being said I try to be not only a diverse player but musician in general. This past year I performed in GFA's (Guitar Foundation of America) competition with my guitar quartet and as a soloist.

Chris is the most understanding, invested, and patient guitar teacher I have ever had. I have been playing for 11 years, and about 6 years into that I began learning classical guitar from Chris. He was able to teach me anything from beginner level until I was ready for advanced techniques. Very responsible and the best experience I’ve had with any guitar teacher.

Chris is a CHEAT - he took our money and just vanished - made up many excuses via canceling classes and ultimately stopped responding to texts. He broke both my kid's confidence and till now they are very sad!

Please Read : OVERVIEW just below this, Thank you.

The Best way to achieve being a Great Guitar Player is buy Studying Music Theory, Learning Proper Technique and form on the Guitar. Anyone can just learn Chords or Songs buy just Practicing, even though you may be wrong and not know why. But to be Trained and develop the Correct way is 100% Faster, and help to eliminate any obstacles that you would encounter otherwise. You also would have a complete understanding of what you're doing, How it all works, and why.

Jimmy is great, super down to earth. Went in with zero knowledge and am astonished at the difference in such a short time.

Jimmy does a great job teaching you physical elements of singing and really helped me understand what my body is doing when singing.

Awesome guy, can't say much else!
Nick W.
James does a great job of explaining what I need to do for my voice and how to get there with it. Breaking it down step by step. As someone who never had a voice lesson before hand, I can recommend him as a teacher.
Chris
Jimmy is fantastic. The foundations he helps to build in theory and technique are instrumental (heh) in becoming proficient with the guitar. He's also super accessible and responsive.

I have been taking lessons from Michael for a few years now, first in his home, and now with Covid online. I look forward to my lessons because Michael is not only very knowledgeable but is very supportive and adaptable.
Matt
I have been taking lessons from Michael for about 9 months, and it has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. He is an excellent guitar player, and instructor. He is patient, thorough, and very willing to pace his instruction with the ability of the student. I am in my late 50's and he is just the person I had hoped for in a teacher. I consider going to lesson not a chore, but a pleasure.

The guitar is a versatile instrument. With my help, you will learn the meaning of chord progressions, chord shapes, scaling, improvisation, and rhythm. Learning how to listen is also something that is invaluable to any musician, which is also something that I will also cover in our lessons.

"Great teacher!

Matthew has been a big help so far in getting me started playing the guitar. We have had 4 lessons so far, and he has taught me several chords, as well as the c major scale. He has been a big help in teaching me to play in time, as well as finger positioning on the guitar."

Tony has been my sons (age 8) instructor for months and we can not say enough positive things about him. My son is very shy and Tony was able to make him comfortable from his very first lesson. I have seen Tony play with his own band and he is an impressive showman. I can see where he can be able to teach and be comfortable with any level of player - from beginner to advanced. Thanks again Tony!"

"Enthusiastic, talented instructor

I’ve been taking lessons with John now for close to 4 months. Prior to Take Lessons I tried to teach myself to play (no luck) and had tried one on one lessons through Groupon, which were also not helpful or successful.
Right from the start, I enjoyed my lessons with John very much. He is enthusiastic, has a very positive, encouraging vibe, and has been more than willing to work with me at my skill level (basic guitar). I especially liked that he asked me to provide him with some music that reflected the style of guitar I wanted to learn to play. Once we laid some basic groundwork, we started off learning to play a song on the list I gave him. He is very talented at transcribing music by ear was able to guide me though the song without sheet music.
Finally, my schedule has been variable over the last few months, but he has been nothing but flexible and gracious in finding time for our lesson when I can’t make our regular scheduled time. I very much appreciate that about him.
Overall, I would recommend John for lesson without hesitation. He’s a talented musician and a gifted instructor."

"I've had 5 lessons with Alex and have already seen incredible improvement. Alex's methodology is to teach lessons but taking a song you really would like to learn, and walking you through the steps necessary to be playing it seamlessly and quickly. He throws in musical theory and other important elements of learning the instrument in there as well. I love that he always emails me a rundown of our lesson via email after the lesson so I can be reminded of things when practicing. He is extremely accommodating with his schedule, which I also really appreciate. Overall, it's been an incredibly enjoyable experience and I recommend Alex to anyone trying to learn!"

While certain types of guitars are standard in modern culture, the instrument has a wide variety of expressions that is nearly impossible to tame. From the ancient Greek kithara to the guitar-like lute from pre-modern Spain, the many different types of guitars vary just as much as the people who play them. Some types of acoustic and electric guitars are more common than others. Steel string dreadnought acoustics and Stratocaster-style electrics are likely to be the first thing that pops i …
