Gunther K.

Book Now

I am offering progressive instruction on nylon/classical guitar using pick style and hybrid combo of fingers for harmonization. I cover improvisation and original composition and songwriting. Essential scales, chords, theory and exercises are topics we examine in an effort to develop proper (classical) technique and to stress originality and stylistic development.

I cover a hybrid mix of classical, Latin, blues and progressive fusion. I was formerly the guitarist of No Dust Records (Holland based) label, progressive metal band, Waricide. In addition I have studied formerly classical guitar and Jazz while in College as a previous music major. I have an AA, BA and MA degrees in various disciplines and have lived and performed in Europe, Canada and various States in the US.

He was great, nice guy! All gyms are closed so I am glad I came across this app and glad I found Gunther. I will definitely book with him again.

Great coach!! I had zero previous experience. Gunther was prompt, professional and organized. He showed me everything slow and took the time to explain why it was important too. Boxing was tough and I was exhausted after 1 hour. Exactly what I needed too ;)

***I am a freelance musician/percussionist in the NYC area but I am currently teaching online lessons from my Texas home in the midst of the pandemic.***

Being from Texas, music education became a huge part of my life from the moment I picked up a pair of sticks in 2001. I received two performance degrees from very prestigious music/percussion programs (Florida State and Eastman School of Music) and I have been private teaching since 2013. Lessons with me could set you up for either great success and/or to simply have a very good time learning something new. Whatever goals you have, I will do my very best to fulfill them. I have training on the following instruments: marimba, xylophone, vibes, bells, snare drum, timpani, drum set, auxiliary instruments (tambourine, triangle, cymbals, tom-toms, etc) and a few hand drums. I currently have access to a drum set, marimba and drum pad/snare drum.

My son Christopher received private lessons from Ms. Gartin when she was here at Brennan High School. He learned so much from her and gained such a confidence in himself. She taught him so much, and helped him discover his passion for music. HIGHLY recommend her for lessons! We miss you Ms. Gartin!

My daughter took drum lessons with Sarah. She made huge advancements in percussion during this time and the relationship between her and my daughter was remarkable. It is a blessing to find someone that your children bond with and look up to.

Ms.Gartin has been such an influential mentor in my life . Her teaching methods have opened up my mind to go deeper into the world of percussion in just the span of a year ! THE REAL DEAL

Recognizing pitches and intervals (the space between any two notes) is the beginning of all singing! We all start here, getting solid and exploring the world of singing, and later move on into the fun and wonder of singing harmonies!

Over the next several years I alternated between pursuing my music degree and playing in bands all over the midwest. In 2004, I transferre

My son has been getting guitar lessons from Jeremy for about six months. My son is really enjoying learning to play and he looks forward to his lessons with Jeremy! Jeremy is a wonderful teacher. He's knowledgeable, intelligent, professional and easy going. Jeremy is not the first teacher that my son has had but he's by far the best. I feel very fortunate to have found him!
Brad
I learned so much from Jeremy over about 4 years of lessons. He listened to my goals, and tailored his lessons to help me achieve them. From the fundamentals to more advanced skills, such as improvisation, he stuck with me and allowed me to develop my own voice on the guitar.
Chris
I'm a total beginner on the guitar. Watched a few youtube vids, learned some basics, but working in-person with Jeremy I've progressed a LOT faster. Worth the investment!

"My 10 year old son has loved his piano lessons with Joey. We had excellent in-person cello lessons in the past, and the video piano lessons have been just as effective. Joey has several camera angles set up in his home so my son can see Joey's hands on the keyboard in real time during the lesson. We get a Zoom link for each visit and a recording of the visit afterwards, which helps with practicing during the week. I highly recommend Joey as a patient and talented instructor! The lessons have been a great activity / distraction for my active son during shelter in place. It's a win-win!"

"I am 4 or 5 lessons in with Jared and I am truly and entirely thrilled with the progress I am seeing and the depth of guitar knowledge I have gained. Jared has a way of teaching that not only allows for actually playing right away but learning the foundations of knowing the guitar and music. I can see that this allows for not just playing "songs" but making music of my own. This is the freedom of "knowing" the guitar."

Feeling a cold coming on, or dealing with allergies? Below, Brooklyn, NY teacher Liz T. shares a few singing warm-up exercises to add to your practice session!   No one likes to sing when they’re sick, but -- as we all know -- sometimes “the show must go on!” It is recommended that you rest, take care of your voice, or even go on vocal rest if you have lost your voice completely. However, if you are dealing with seasonal allergies or a common cold, I have good news! It is still heal …
