Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have taught guitar since 2012 and have been playing since 2000. I am happy to take students at the beginner and intermediate levels. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

About Ben

Hi, there! My name is Ben and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have taught students of all ages from 3 to adult. I have experience not just with teaching but also with writing, recording, and performing music in successful bands and on multiple instruments

Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).

I hadn't played a musical instrument since elementary school when I started Ukulele lessons with Ben. Ben started from the beginning, answered all my questions along the way, and built upon that information in each lesson. It wasn't in a didactic way, but in a way that was really customized to fit my Ukulele lesson goals. Ben's teaching style is very flexible also. I had some Ukulele lesson books I had been gifted and we worked from those. I didn't feel that I had to buy a bunch of additional equipment, books, etc.

I recommend Ben as a music teacher. He is understanding, encouraging, and inspirational. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Ben and JC Instrumental.

Ben has been working with our daughter since January 2019, when she turned 6 1/2. He arrives at our home on time each week and he works with her at an age appropriate level. We appreciate that he recognizes the effort she puts into the weeks when she practices often and he gently makes her aware when she hasn't practiced enough. He always speaks with her in a kind way and with us in a collaborative manner. We all want her to enjoy her piano experience, and we are thankful to have found Ben just a few blocks away from our home.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I specialize in blues, rock and funk guitar on both the electric and acoustic, I also teach the electric bass and the banjo. I will teach-the fundamentals of music, ie. rhythm, melody and harmony, and then assist you on your journey to finding your own unique musical styling. I believe that music is the ultimate form of SELF expression so it is important that you tell me what inspires YOU and what your personal music goals are. Their are multiple ways to conceptualize the music and i will be your ally in finding what ways work best for you. i will customize lesson plans based on your personal music journey and where you want to get in your playing. whether you want to compose your own symphonies, write your own concept album, play some covers on the weekends, or just better yourself as a human being it would be my honor to teach you

About Zachary

I have been playing the guitar since my teenage years and it has been an integral part of me maturing into a responsible adult. The dedication and patience that learning an instrument have taught me are skills that i have applied to my academic and professional life. I hope to be able to impart not

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I've been playing guitar, composing multi-instrumental music, producing music, playing in professional and local bands, and have been an active studio session player for 17 years.
I have been teaching guitar for just as long, and helped many students understand break-through concepts and acquire skills that other teachers were unable to.
I have taught total and complete beginners to play their favorite song after 2 weeks, with 1 hour per day practice time. I taught my best friend and my brother to play guitar, both are now in professional touring bands.

About Peter

I have been composing and producing music for 20+ years. Since I got my first guitar at 13, I've been playing in bands, writing, recording & mixing songs. Touring with bands throughout the U.S. And personally learning from my network of industry veterans who have worked with bands such as: The Roll

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Acoustic or electric, guitar or bass, beginner and beyond! I am a full-time singer-songwriter who has been playing guitar since 2002.

The best part that my students love is that I am left-handed- when I am showing them something on the guitar, it is like a mirror image for a right handed student, making it very easy to follow along with the exercise!

My lessons are custom tailored to my students according to what they are interested in working on. These lessons are done online, so no travel is involved.

All styles and age groups are taught!

About Joe

Hello and congratulations for seeking an instructor to teach you to play a musical instrument! The power of music simply cannot be put into words, and you are embarking on a journey to harness and share that amazing experience with the world. I am a full-time musician who loves to share my passion

"Being a beginner (guitar) I attended my first class with a positive mind and no set expectations. I left class joyous, as Billy mastered to introduce me to guitar theory in such a simplified manner, which made it easy to grasp. I attended my second class last week, and feel that I have advanced/internalized greatly in such a short period. Further, I appreciate that Billy has always been prompt to attend my inquiries. Based on the aforementioned experiences, I look forward to my upcoming classes, and I’m very curious to know the end result - without hesitation, I'm certain it will be positive. Billy is a very gifted guitar teacher, hope he can teach for many years to come - as many can benefit from his great talents."

"I have been taking guitar lessons from Ryan for five months now. Within those five months I have learned to use several techniques on the guitar. Ryan has also taught me about other instruments which has resulted in my guitar skills to be a lot better. Currently we are working on my rhythm by using the drums. Feeling the beat of the drums helps me with my rhythm. Ryan does not only uses drums but other instruments too. To help connect the instrument you came to learn on. Over all Ryan is are great teacher and I have learned more in five months than I did when I tryed to learn myself."
