Private Guitar Teacher

I am a professional guitarist with international touring experience, endorsements, and qualifications in theory and composition. I have been teaching private lessons to students aged 8 to 65 for several years. Tailoring the lessons to reach the your goals, we can explore areas such as learning your favorite songs, writing your own, while forming a solid basis of musical knowledge, and the tools you will need to grow into a capable and fluent musician.

From my experiences in independent bands, I can also offer consultations and advice on soliciting endorsements, creating press kits, writing press releases, and other ways to promote your album.

About Sally

I grew up in New Zealand playing all sorts of instruments before focusing on guitar. My guitar took me all around the country touring with bands, and then eventually to the USA, where I was fortunate enough to tour extensively throughout the States and Canada as a session player.

Jennifer is great with my high-energy seven-year-old. She's very patient and she is able to make him engage. She also takes the skills he's learned in his music class in school, and builds his skills lessons around his abilities. Finally, she gives homework in a notebook that is clear and measurable, so he knows exactly what to do on his own throughout the week.

Alex has been giving piano classes to my almost 6-yr old girls and he has really well connected with them. He is very flexible and he even introduced guitar to one of the girls when I had expressed that she should maybe try something else! Thank you Alex!

We couldn't be happier with Sergei. My 14 year old daughter has had an such a good experience with him over the past year and a half. She progressed well from day one. Plus he is easy going and a great personality for a teenager. I would highly recommend him as a teacher! Thanks Sergei for helping her to have such comfort with the guitar!

"Once you go Terry, you never leave.

I've been taking lessons with Terry for about 5 years now. I've become a very skilled guitar player in these 5 years. Through Terry, I've learned my fretboard up and down, know how to use scales to improvise solos, and especially learned how to play heavy metal. He is an extremely talented musician. Not only does he teach you your instrument of choice, he gives you knowledge of music theory. Not because he feels like he has to, because he wants to. He is in my opinion one of the most valued teachers in Michigan. Go with Terry, you will not be disappointed."
