Scale techniques with an emphasis on diatonic and pentatonic scales, providing the skills to effectively meander on the fretboard and learn to improvise on the spot. Understanding chord structure and their positions, spanning from styles such as the blues to pop to rock n roll.

About Diana
Diana is a classical guitarist and pianist originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to guitar and piano, she teaches voice, ukulele and songwriting in New York City, where she now resides. She spent the better part of a decade studying closely with two mentors: celebrated classical guitarist Lynn McGrath, and revered pianist Stephen Montoya. As a high school student, Diana regularly performed in recitals and participated in competitions and festivals across the U.S., including the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) and The Parkening Guitar Competition, where she received masterclass instruction from distinguished guitarists like David Russell, Ana Vidovic and Christopher Parkening. She went on to study classical guitar at the North Carolina School for the Arts as the youngest student admitted in her focus at the age of 17, and la
ter completed her studies in music performance, composition, and foreign language at the University of New Mexico. In addition to her classical studies, Diana sang in a variety of traveling choral groups throughout high school and took small roles in the Broadway musicals ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘Rent’.

In the course of her studies, Diana was honored with awards of excellence from the National Honors Society of Guitar and recognized for her performances with the critically acclaimed woman’s guitar ensemble, ‘Presti Quartet.’ She was selected two years in a row to perform 1st chair in the New Mexico ALLSTATE Guitar Orchestra - the first-ever young woman to earn that position. The following year she was chosen as one of twelve guitarists to represent music in education in the United States.

In the time since her studies, Diana has called many places home. She lived in New Orleans for several years and in that time her music interests broadened to embrace traditional American forms, such as jazz and the blues. During that time she ran a private music practice, teaching children and young adults to become proficient with music. She continued her travels, her studies and her teachings during the summer of 2017 in Spain. She has been living, studying and teaching in New York City since the fall of 2017, always carrying with her the belief that music should never feel like a chore and that learning music should be curiosity-driven, active, enjoyable, and emphasize self-expression. Diana believes in building a strong foundation of musical knowledge with her students by providing the tools to create good habits from the beginning and encouraging effective, deliberate practice. It is her mission to inspire aspiring musicians as a music educator and bring a life-long love of music to her students.

Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for over half my life and teaching for five years now. My love for music has played a huge role in my life, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Whether you are wanting to learn how to perform, compose music, or play your favorite song, I promise to help you achieve your goal. I’ve taught a variety of ages, and I truly believe it's never too early or late to learn an instrument. Every student is unique in what they are wanting to learn, so I promise to structure each student’s lessons to fit their individual goals and interests. It's also very important to me that my students enjoy each and every lesson, so the student is in complete control of their learning.

About Daniel
Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for over half my life and teaching for five years now. I first began learning guitar at a young age, and my passion for music has grown ever since.

My musical education began with guitar and music theory lessons when I was ten years old and continued until I graduated high school. These lessons included songwriting, music theory, and many other topics related to guitar. I also learned a variety of musical genres, including classic rock, acoustic, pop, country, and a bunch more. Being exposed to such a wide range of artists and genres was an incredible experience because it allowed me to learn numerous techniques and musical arrangements. This is also where I fell in love with artists like John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. These influential artists played a huge role in sh
aping my guitar playing, songwriting, and technique. This also led to me joining a singer-songwriter trio called Two Beards and a Boy where I was the lead guitarist. We currently perform at city events, fundraisers, and numerous restaurants in the DFW area.

In middle school, I became the lead electric guitarist in my church’s band. I have also lead the worship service on multiple occasions and subbed in at different instruments as needed. I also began taking private vocal performance lessons where I learned how to read music, sight read, and other musical skills. I continued taking these lessons in high school, where I was involved in multiple nationally ranked choirs and performed at Carnegie Hall in 2016. Being involved in my high school's varsity choir not only honed my overall musical abilities but led to opportunities accompanying the choir as a guitarist.

My love for music has played a huge role in my life, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Nothing beats the excitement of a student as they’re able to play their first song. Whether you are wanting to learn how to perform, compose music, or play your favorite song, I promise to help you achieve your goal.

I began giving guitar and music theory lessons in high school. I’ve taught a variety of ages, and I truly believe it's never too early or late to learn an instrument. Every student is unique in what they are wanting to learn, so I promise to structure each student’s lessons to fit their individual goals and interests. Also, it's very important to me that my students enjoy each and every lesson, so the student is in complete control of their learning. I have been working with children and youth for many years through the Upward Sports program, and I love building connections with all of my students to create a comfortable and fun learning environment.

As a college student at UT, I am very flexible with scheduling, so feel free to contact me about available times for lessons. I hope to hear from you soon, and please let me know if you have any questions!

I make my lessons exciting and engaging by focusing on what the student wants to learn, while also teaching them the building blocks for a solid foundation in their musical journey. I specialize in blues, rock, funk, jazz, and country. I can teach out of Hal Leonard Books, but I can also write out music, or I can just teach you to learn by ear. I'm exciting to meet you and start grooving!

About Jarred
I am a semi-professional guitarist and I have played in the local Dover - Seacoast area with different groups over the years which is given me a greater understanding about my craft.

Students can expect to improve incrementally after each week as we explore different techniques and styles that the student is interested in. Using your favorite songs, I will teach you proper building blocks for good technique in order to get the best sound and achieve the best playing experience possible.
I can teach students of all ages and skill levels. I can teach you to read and learn things by the book, or I can teach you to learn by ear. I base my lessons around the goals of the student.

Denver, CO

Whether you're a first day student or a seasoned player, I've probably taught someone just like you before. I especially love teaching theory and fretboard logic, but I can help you learn whatever you're looking to take on.

With every student, I create a specific path for you that gives you what you're looking to learn (aka what got you excited about picking up the guitar in the first place) along with the essentials to help make your journey as smooth as possible. If there isn't quality tab readily available, I'm down to transcribe the tune for you and I guarantee you'll laugh and enjoy yourself (at no extra charge of course).

About Dave
I've been playing the guitar for over 23 years now and teaching for over 18. In 2006, I received his BA in Jazz performance from U-Mass Amherst and since then I've performed anywhere from local bars and cafes, in pits for musical theater, as a show band musician for Carnival Cruise Lines and has even been fortunate enough to have played with James Taylor and Nigel Hall.

In college, I started teaching to make some spending money and quickly realized it was a passion of mine. After college I took a slight hiatus between teaching conversational English in France and the whole Cruise ship thing, but once I made it back to land, I began teaching for a local music school, music store and the local community college as well before I decided to move to Denver in 2013. Since then I've taught for several local music stores before I finally opene
d up my own operation which is now known as dB's Sound Education based out of Flipside Music. I also perform locally with Pandas and People.

Her knowledge and confidence in playing the guitar, has greatly improved. Dave gets all the credit for that.
He works well with her, is communicative, and is as flexible as he can be, even last minute.
I have, and will continue to recommend Dave to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons

About Morgan W.

Close
Simi Valley, CA

View Full Profile

I can show you how to improvise any scale or chord on the guitar without reading a single piece of music notation, tab, or chord chart, so that you can play the music that lives within you.

Maybe you want to become a songwriter, or a composer. Or maybe you just want to jam with friends or play your favorite songs by ear. Either way, the process is the same.

I can teach you to:
✅ Write your own songs and compose your own music
✅ Jam with friends
✅ Play any chord and scale on the fly even if you’ve never played it before
✅ Learn music theory by ear
✅ Recognize chords as clearly as you’d recognize colors
✅ Play freely and without restrictions in any musical key

Without:
❌ Studying “licks”
❌ Obsessing over complicated music theory
❌ Getting stuck on restrictive chord charts and scale patterns
❌ Doing exercises that don’t have musical context or application
❌ Learning other people’s music (unless you want to)
❌ Reading music notation, tabs, and chord charts

About Morgan
I am a songwriter and composer with an education in classical and jazz guitar,

I started playing 13 years ago, and have definitely had hit my share of plateaus along the way which led me to enrolling in music school.

In school, I learned a lot about the intellectual side of music, but I felt like I was always missing something. My professors would assure me that it'd click eventually, and it did.

I paid attention to the methodology of composers and jazz improvisers. I couldn't wonder help but wonder where the similarities were, and then it hit me like a ton of bricks. They learned music from the sounds themselves, not from theory books and classrooms. Then, taking inspiration from Miles Davis, I dropped out of music school and began my real education.

Rock, Jazz, Blues, Metal & Shredding

About Lars
I've been studying guitar seriously since the end of my 14th year and quickly fell so in love with it that I knew very quickly that I'd go to school for it and play the instrument at a very high level, simply because I had a burning sensation within my heart that I had to or I'd never be satisfied. I've been teaching since I was 16 and have found that learning culminates in teaching, so for me it has been a great pleasure to guide others in the same field that I am so passionate about and thus to learn from my students in ways that are not possible when one is not a teacher.

I started with good old rock n' roll, beginning with Nirvana and heading back into the 60s to the likes of Hendrix, Zeppelin and more. I studied blues and then moved to jazz and classical and dabbled with flamenco and Indian music. Through it all I always had a stron
g attraction to metal and shredding and these genres became a big part of my musical expression and served as a synthesis for all the other styles I studied. In college I focused on classical guitar and even played the arch lute for a year and a half.

In 2016 I recorded an album of original metal music with my brother and we also released a 3 song EP of fully improvised metal, all in one take. You can listen to this music here and get a sense of my playing, though this only represents one dimension of my playing style: karmicashes.bandcamp.com/
