I didn’t have any musical background but always wanted to try. And I got so lucky to met Keith. He is very encouraging and scrupulous teacher. We have piano and singing lessons, he offers me to practice songs and melodies that I like but makes sure that I get all the basics right. And the best part is that he loves playing and teaching music, which creates a great atmosphere in the class

I have few lessons with Keith so far. Keith is a very patient and flexible teacher. He customizes lesson plan accordingly to my level and needs. I have learned a lot in short amount of time. Thank you!

He is the best! It’s been 3 weeks and I’m singing everywhere I go!

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I have had the great opportunity to teach all levels for over 15 years in the United Kingdom, South Africa and the USA. I have held positions as guitar teacher at many Colleges, Universities and Companies around the UK and USA. I have worked in the distant learning department at the Manhattan School of Music, teaching students around the country from their studio base. With many of my students going onto music schools such as The New School, NYC, Queens College, and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire I believe that I have a wide range of experience with all age ranges from beginners to beyond advanced. I focus on making the lessons as fun and engaging as possible whilst keeping on track to certain goals set by myself and the student throughout the year.

Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!
Xiaoqi
Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

I would describe my teaching style as organic and holistic. I believe student needs its own time to digest knowledge and incorporate it. Each lesson should be personalized in order to connect with the needs and goals of each student.
For me it is a pleasure to stimulate curiosity and give tools for an artistic development. I have taught music for 8 years on 1 on 1 classes as well as group workshops. I exceeded as a Core Music Tutor at Berklee College of Music, providing individual hourly tutoring sessions assisting students in the completion of coursework and projects in ear training, and harmony and arranging.

we worked through the chorus and transitions on a song I've always struggled to sing. The help with placing certain sounds or pointing out where I've taken in too much air allowed me to sing the whole tune!

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

I love classical guitar, and I am passionate about not only helping students grow as musicians, but to grow in their passion for music as well.

I teach classical guitar and host an instructional YouTube channel. I received professional training at the University of Washington in Seattle, and I have taken lessons with the composer/guitarist Kevin Callahan.

I have taught students from age 4 to 80, and I know how to make learning enjoyable for the young and less young. I have learned how to be an encouraging and constructive instructor as I train students in how to play and practice.

Performance and instructional videos are available on my YouTube channel, which can be found by searching for my name.

Thank you!

In addition to professional university and private teaching, I have benefitted from attending performances and masterclasses by many of the world's foremost classical guitarists, including Xuefei Yang, Jorge Caballero, Marcin Dylla and Fabio Zanon. I have a great deal of experience studying theo

Brian is a fantastic teacher and an amazing guitarist. He gears the lessons to the students needs and makes the lessons very enjoyable.
Brad
My daughter has been taking ukulele lessons from Brian for several years. First of all, her skills and confidence have soared. She enjoys playing and practicing and will often just start strumming and practicing when she has spare time.

Brian's patience, skill and enthusiasm are a huge reason for my daughter's ukulele success. He is also very flexible in scheduling classes and accommodating interruptions.

I cannot recommend Brian enough. Anyone needing ukulele or guitar instruction, would do well in considering him.
Sheila Dorame
My son had been taking lessons for about 4 years before he began working Brian. Our son was looking to learn more about music theory and exploring writing his own music. This is exactly what he received when he began working with Brian. Brian would send him home with weekly lessons and my son was excited to explore this Avenue of music theory and creating his own music. Brian unlocked our son’s creativity and gave him a much needed confidence boost. Brian was extremely flexible with our sons schedule which is a plus, with a teenager who has other activities. My son feels that Brian took his skills to the next level and opened his creativity window to explore other playing styles. Brian exudes patience, kindness, creativity, and a passion for teaching others his love for guitar. We are thankful for Brian’s dedication to our son, it’s such a joy when our son plays for us. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with Brian

I'm still a beginner but I've tried various methods of learning classical guitar and from what I've seen through the various methods I've used, I believe I've learned more information that is going to project me forward faster through Cole in just a few classes than I have through the other methods I've tried so far."

A Little Bit of Country: Easy Classic Country Songs for Guitarists

If you're a fan of classic country music, you've come to the right place. Here, guitar teacher Willy M. shares his favorite classic country songs for guitarists... I grew up in the late '70s and early '80s in the rural Midwest when "Hee-Haw," a country television program, was something that everyone knew about. It was the Grand Ole Opry’s rendition of a high-theatrical experience, and a showcase for classic country artists to play their tunes. Willie Nelson, one of my favorite songwr …
