Stop waiting! It's time to begin or extend your guitar knowledge and get you achieving that sound you're looking for!

Nick is a fabulous instructor. As a novice player taking lessons from a pro, he is able to instruct and motivate me to improve my skills. What I like most is his ability to be flexible when teaching the lessons. (I just learned how to pay Purple Rain because I was devastated when Prince died). I shared my feelings with Nick, and he showed me the chords.
He makes my on-line classes feel as though I'm in his home. He is highly skilled and supports my vision of being in a Rock Band one day. He chuckles and ... We Rock on!! I highly recommend Nick!

I have been a music teacher for 17+ years and an instructor for an online platform for guitar instruction--which collaborates with Full Sail, Berkeley, and Musician's Institute, as well as artists such as the famous Brent Mason, Joe Satriani band members, Bumblefoot (Rolling Stones) and others..

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

I am an accomplished guitar player in a variety of genres and have extensive experience with different bands. I studied guitar at Southern Oregon University, and then went on to teach guitar and piano at the Able Music School in Auckland, New Zealand, and with the Musicality Network in Portland, Oregon. I am an actively performing musician and recording artist; in the past, I have played with bands ranging from acoustic rock to punk, jazz to classical, Renaissance to reggae, blue-grass to heavy metal. I am a recent New York transplant, and am looking forward to sharing my love of guitar and piano with a new set of students!

I started teaching private lessons while living in Ashland, Oregon, and have continued teaching private lessons through today. I also taught at the Able Music Studio in Auckland, New Zealand for 2 1/2 years and then through the Musicality Network in Portland, Oregon for 1 year.

I'm Ahmad a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself guitar at the age of 12. I moved to the U.S. in 2001 and studied music for 15 years receiving my B.M. and M.M in music and audio production at San Francisco State University. I then moved to Los Angeles then studied and trained with John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch and many others. I have performed hundreds of concerts in the U.S. as well in Europe and the Middle East with Artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Michael Angelo Batio, Ratt, Sammy Hagar, Dokken and many others.

I then moved to Los Angeles then studied and trained with John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch and many others.

I ranked #1 in the Slash Guitar Center competition.

eve Vai Sam Ash Best in Shred competition.

I find a student's strengths and weaknesses using various ways to encourage each student. I am very patient, kind, flexible, and enthusiastic and I love working with children as much as adults. I strongly support basic skills: sight-reading, pitch and tone.

I have 25 years experience teaching kids and adults guitar. Also performing live and in the studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
My objectives: to help students powerfully communicate through the essence of music and aid the development of children and adults by finding their strengths and weaknesses and to develop their skills and show their musical talents. I emphasize basic skills, good sight-reading, guitar technique, and theory.

Lessons are held at either your home, or mine using composers from various time periods that speaks to the individual student.
Also,I do prefer to work weekly with my students.
A beginner lesson may be 10-15 min. for warm-ups and scales, 10-15 min. theory and rest playtime. In three to six months the student will be able to read sheet music and should be able to perform simple songs.

An intermediate lesson has more focus on music and technique from a specific genre. A specialty is preparation for guitar auditions or doing live or studio gigs.

I enjoy teaching children from age 5 up to adults.

*** Specialties ***
I teach the basic skills very strongly, and also encourage students and challenge them, as well.
I also have new techniques for teaching Electric, Acoustic & CLassical Guitar.
I do prefer to teach a weekly lesson.

I've always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, and finally decided to pursue lessons a few months ago. After not having much luck with other teachers, I was lucky to find Ahmad and I am really getting the kind of instruction I've been looking for. Ahmad's lessons are extremely well-prepared and are thoughtful of my goals and learning style. I'm moving at a pace that is comfortable for me, yet challenges me to make improvements with each lesson. As an instructor, Ahmad is super patient and seems to genuinely care that I am both having fun and also meeting my goals as a student. Also, Ahmad is just a really fun person! My friend and I went to check out one of his British Band Shaughnessy's shows, and it was just crazy fun! I'd give him 10 stars if I could! :D

Want to learn to play your favorite songs, guitar riffs or solos? Frustrated by the lack of detail in music concepts and technique found with most online and in-person guitar instruction? I can help! I’ve been teaching professionally for over 20 years, have specific training in guitar (Masters in guitar performance), am proficient in all styles except blue grass, and know how to break down the technical and musical concepts in detail that will help you improve your playing and understanding of music in a fun and engaging way. You’ll learn note reading as well as TAB, chord charts, finger picking, the most popular strum patterns for any style of music, as well as theory (how music works) and more! I have years of experience both teaching AND performing in bands covering a wide variety of musical styles and can pass on helpful tips that can improve your playing.

Your lessons will be well structured so you’ll always know what to work on and how so that your home practices are as ...

About Michelle
The first song that made me want to learn guitar as a kid was Smoke On The Water and Nancy Wilson of Heart inspired me to be a Rock guitarist. I've studied guitar and music from grade school all through college and spent countless hours listening to my favorite songs over and over to figure them out (yeah, that was before youtube was a thing.

I've played guitar in school jazz bands and classical guitar ensembles both recreationally and professionally.

My personal philosophy is that life should be fun and learning music should be GREAT FUN. In all my years of teaching one of the things I've found that makes music fun for the student is when I'm able to teach something they thought was complicated in an easy way that makes the student smile and say "that's it!?! I thought it was more complicated. I can do this!". If that sounds
like the kind of lesson experience you'd like to have then get in touch and let's make music!

One last thing. I have completed a 3rd party independent background check and am most happy to provide you that information so feel free to ask.

Pro musician/recording artist, over 15 years teaching experience. I MAKE LEARNING TO PLAY FUN. I call my teaching style "50-50" Because 50% percent is what you want and 50% is what you need. You'll learn by working towards your goals using music that you enjoy (Rock/Blues/Country/Jazz/etc)

About Nairobi
My goal is to make you shine. All lessons are individually designed specifally for you. Also, I know HOW to teach effectively. Establishing trust and communication is key. All lessons are customized to your musical tastes and particular style of learning. There are many talented professional musicians who aren't good teachers. It took my first year on the job to master the methods of being an effective teacher (and I'm still learning!) Besides musical skill, it takes patience and empathy (enjoying your work helps too!)
What I like most about teaching is...spreading music, playing music - listening and helping others play...Everyday is fun, it's totally inspiring. I think my favorite thing is when students proudly play music that they've composed. Even my bad days are good!

Nairobi has been a great instructor. He does not use the "one size fits all approach", but rather will customize the instruction to what you want. Accordingly, students will remain interested and get more out of it when the curriculum is of interest to them. I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but wasn't interested in learning to read music. Nairobi also let's you choose what type and what specific songs you'd like to learn. Learning to play your favorite rock, pop or blues song versus Mary Had a Little Lamb- guess which one keeps you more motivated and interested in learning how to play? Also, being able to have the lesson in the privacy of your own home is great. He makes learning to play the guitar fun. If you put the work in you'll be playing in no time.

About Trevor
Willa says:
"A talented guitarist for multiple styles, and a very patient teacher!"

Ned says:
"Trevor clearly explains guitar techniques in line with students’ ability to implement."

I am a diverse and skilled lead and rhythm guitarist. I play Rock, Jazz, Blues, and Balkan music. I started my journey with Eric Clapton and George Harrison in 2004. I graduated with honors from the Contemporary Music Program at Santa Fe University of Art & Design in 2015.

I played lead guitar in a progressive rock power trio called Get Safe for three years. During my time at school, I was also exposed to Balkan and Middle Eastern music styles, which broadened my understanding of music and my technique. My most current project is one that fuses jazz guitar and electronic dance music, which I've titled SOZN.

My passion for music's functionality a

My guitar lessons and classes are taught by a certified Musicians Institute graduate. I've had close to 10 years experience teaching lessons with kids and adults aged 5 and up. I've coordinated a number of after school guitar programs for kids in the past and still run a Y-Kids guitar program at the YMCA. I teach based on what the students want to learn to play while also covering music theory so you're enjoying while you learn!! I have had a lot of experience not only teaching but playing in bands, doing studio guitar sessions, playing gigs, and just working in the music industry.

About Kevin
Hello, my name is Kevin Balzano. I'm a Musicians Institute graduate class of 2010. Since graduating I've spent the last 7+ years teaching lessons and also coordinating after school guitar programs for companies such as Family Focus, Children's Choice, and I still run a Y-Kids guitar program for the YMCA of Southern Nevada. I've had lots of studio experience, session guitar work, and of course still play in bands that do gigs. I teach based on what musical style students want to learn while also implying music theory to help strengthen their knowledge.. I love teaching and playing music and it definitely shows in my lessons. I can cover all music styles from classical to shred metal and all ability levels from beginning to advanced. I'm always excited to get new students and hope to hear from you soon. Thanks

Teaching professionally for over 12 years, I offer fun, engaging, and effective lessons for anyone looking to learn. My aim is to help you become a confident player and student, and I will develop an individual plan for you to fulfill your musical goals, including smaller weekly checklists so you know exactly what to work on between lessons.

About Nicholas
I am a guitarist, songwriter, and composer based in Providence, RI. I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Arts in Jazz Studies for guitar.

I have over 10 years of teaching experience and work with students of nearly any age and ability level. Beginners generally cover learning to play chords and songs, developing technique by playing with minimal tension, and maximizing practice time to ensure continual growth. All of my students receive a certain amount of practice in theory, ear training, and musical appreciation/analysis, but I always try to connect it into the natural flow of lessons.

Stylistically, I teach a wide array of genres but some areas of focus include jazz and improvisation, lead and rhythm rock guitar, and fingerstyle with a general emphasis on teaching students to become more self-sufficient
learners, and to think and play creatively.

Besides teaching, my main passion is writing and performing new music. I have toured across the United States and Canada with several bands and released a number of full length records and EPs.

Whatever stage you're at in your musical life, starting from square one, looking to build up from what you already know, or needing a real shake up in your playing, I look forward to helping you take the next step and achieve your goals.
