Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!

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.

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. Since then, I have

I am an adult learner with very little singing experience, although I love to sing. I think Athena is a gifted teacher. There are people who are just born to teach and she is one of them. I had someone prior to Athena and the lessons are like night and day. With Athena I feel like I am really learning the art of singing and the mechanics of it. She is very kind, patient and easy to communicate with. I really look forward to continuing my lessons with her!

If you are brand-new to the guitar, I'd love to jump right in and teach you a fun song right away during your first lesson. I like making this as fun as possible while you're learning a lot about the guitar. If you already know how to play, I'd like to help you gain a better understanding of how the guitar applies to basic music theory. I want to help you truly gain your independence as a guitar player. In my opinion, there are only two things that really matter when learning how to play the guitar: 1) Having fun and 2) Learning a lot. That's what I hope that you can attain by learning from me.

I would like to start out saying I’m a 66 year old beginner acoustic guitar player. Kevin was very good in assuring me that the guitar isn’t that difficult to learn and proved it in my first lesson. He makes you feel at ease and throughly explains the lesson.

I specialize in providing a great foundation for learning the instrument. Too many students, new to the guitar, get frustrated and quit after just a few lessons, because it falls short of their expectations and they find they are not progressing. I make certain to keep the enthusiasm intact through the entire learning process by making sure the student is actually playing the instrument. I like to think of my method as "Fast Track to Playing Guitar"; my goal is to keep the student's interest in the instrument at a sustained level while they are grasping the fundamentals. Because I teach Voice as well, and have made a living accompanying myself on the guitar, I can combine those attributes for my students, if they desire to accompany themselves while singing. I find that many of my students really enjoy that option, and I have uncovered many a student who had never thought of themselves as a vocalist, singing and playing with astounding results... My success rate of having my students ...

Glenn is amazing! He listened to me sing a few songs and gave me two tips that completely improved my vocal performance! Highly, highly recommended if you want to sing and perform better, and if you truly want to profoundly impact the listener to a higher degree !

"Joe taught both my kids and made it a wonderful experience

We wanted our son and daughter to have an appreciation of music and at the same time enjoy the experience. Joe was the perfect solution. He has the ability to reach out to kids and make them feel comfortable. He encouraged them to select the music they enjoyed and then molded his lessons around their interest. We didn't really need to push them to practice, they actually enjoyed it. This had not been the case at other organizations, where it was always a chore to have them practice."

"Great personality with an even greater ability to teach effectively yet enjoyable at the same time! He's very musically knowledgable and willing to teach you anything that you might want to learn. He's by far the best instructor I have ever had and I wouldn't recommend anyone else besides him as an instructor. He connects with you at a level that most instructors won't care to have with their students."

"I’m an adult learner and could not be more pleased with Nate as a teacher. His energy, talent, knowledge of all kinds of music and easy going, relaxed personality has made lessons fun and without stress. Nate prepares and goes out of his way to research and find things for me to learn and work on. He is able to come up with things on the fly that can benefit you while in the lesson. He communicates very well, and explains more complex things in a way you can understand them and if not…he’s very easy to talk to and I don’t’ feel embarrassed to as those “stupid” questions. He is able to help me with any kind of music whether it be the blues, country, rock and roll or heavy metal. With all that said, I would highly recommend Nate as a teacher for guitar for all ages."
