Private Guitar Teacher

Through the foundation I've gained by the influences of Mel Bay, Hal Leonard, and Suzuki musical instruction methods, I compile my own teaching materials. Using personally constructed guitar lessons, I demonstrate, instruct, and guide the student based on my assessment of their individual needs, skill level, and progress. Lessons are formulated in Modules, and advancement through them is based on the student's personal aptitude, skill level, and practice commitment. Learning is accomplished by ear as well as through essential methods of musical notation (tablature, 5-line staff, rhythmic comprehension). Students are trained to perform written music as well as to write and express the music within themselves.
I'm an encouraging and motivating guitar teacher with a casual relaxed approach. Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience.

Scott takes his time to teach you proper techniques to take your playing to the next level.
Joan B.
I'm enjoying my lessons with Scott. He has taught me a lot. He makes playing and learning exciting. I can't wait for my next lesson.
James
I started with Scott as a newbie and he has definitely helped me grow as a guitarist. He takes time and makes things easier to learn. As complicated learning can be, he simplifies it and breaks it down. When I feel like I’m not progressing he always shows me how I am. His modules are easy to follow. His teaching style is compatible with all types of learners whether you are visual, hands on or a listener. It’s not just business with him. He’s always available for questions after or between lessons. He’s knowledgeable in equipment so don’t hesitate to ask for some advice on what to buy. He’s affordable and lesson times are flexible. I highly recommend him for all ages and learning needs.

Blake is a great instructor. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed right away. He went at the pace I needed (glacial) and encouraged me every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Whether it's technique, harmony, theory or aural skills, he can explain any seemingly difficult idea in a concise, logical way. With all the knowledge of a conservatory trained guitarist and gigging musician, he's a down to earth teacher who simply loves music and is passionate about sharing it with his students.

First lesson went very well. Looking forward to the next.
Deborah Dickson Jones
I just had my first lesson with Brett and he customized it according to my individual needs and circumstance. I am passionate about guitar and folk music but have no musical experience. Bretts plan is to start with the very basics and move forward from there. He was very patient with me and his directions were easy to follow. Though I am a senior I feel like I am 20 years old again and learning a new skill. Thanks Brett

"My son has been taking lessons from Ahmad for four years and he loves it. It's amazing to see a kid continue to be motivated about something that requires hard work and dedication and I truly credit Ahmad with his talent as a teacher for inspiring my son. Ahmad moves kids at their own pace and with just the right amount of pressure - not too much, not too little. He says that hard work is more important than talent and I think he's right. He's also just a hip kind of guy and my son likes hanging out with him. We've seen Ahmad play live and we have his CD's - he is incredibly talented. Ahmad continues to inspire my son and keep him excited about playing even though he is in high school now and has a lot of other stuff going on - he never wants to miss a lesson no matter how tired or busy he is."

"Chris is an amazing guitar instructor and an even better guitarist! He makes lessons fun, he’s very approachable, and he’s great at explaining everything from nailing riffs to musical theory. His versatility is impressive and he genuinely wants to teach songs that fit my interests which keep me engaged and excited to practice between lessons. He sends handouts, recordings of our lessons, and sums up what I should practice which has been immensely helpful. I’ve asked Chris for advice between sessions and he goes above and beyond by sending back videos breaking down my question. His ear is amazing and he gives great advice on how to improve and how to get to the next level. You can tell that guitar is his passion, which is contagious. I would recommend Chris to anyone on any level- whether you’re trying to polish up your skills or you’re a complete beginner!"

"Mauricio has been a perfect fit as a guitar teacher for my ten year old son who, until meeting Mauricio, was totally apathetic about learning an instrument. The list of discared wood winds, strings, & percussion is long... Now my kiddo looks forward to his lessons because of Mauricio. He practices (during the week!!!), and he walks away from his time with Mauricio with the kind of happy grin on his face typically reserved for video games and nachos. Mauricio is ever punctual, solicitous, accommodating, friendly, and kind. We feel very lucky to have him in our lives and couldn't recommend him more highly to others."

"Eric really is an amazing teacher, I've been working with him for about 2 months now and my playing has gotten monumentally better. He's a great guy and really is a super technical musician; you will be impressed by his vast knowledge of musical theory, especially his mastery of jazz music. His teaching style allows you to learn advanced musical theory techniques a lot easier than any other way I've ever learned. I also have a very unpredictable schedule due to my work and he makes it very easy to still get my lessons in. If you're on the fence about doing lessons I would tell you to definitely work with Eric, you will not be disappointed. He will without a doubt be the best teacher you can find.

Thanks for everything man! Very glad that I came across you on this website.

5 Delightful Jazz Guitar Licks - Tabs and Audio

Having a few guitar licks up your sleeve is super helpful when you're improvising. Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few of his favorite jazz guitar licks... Before we begin playing these jazz guitar licks, it's a good idea to get familiar with the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale is a more versatile and useful scale than you might think. While being an easily-recognized basis for blues, rock, and country solos, it can be (and frequently is) a scale used for jazz solos, too. A …
