Private Guitar Teacher

Experienced teacher of 5 years able to teach all levels of experience. I am a graduate of The New School of Jazz and Contemporary music. While at the New School I studied with some of the masters including Reggie Workman, Billy Harper, Jane Ira Bloom, Matt Wilson, Dave Glasser, Peter Bernstein, Vic Juris and many others. Additionally, I was a tutor for three years in every subject so I know their curriculum back to front. I am available to teach Ear training, Sight Reading, Improvisation, Music Theory, Rhythm, Arranging, Composition, Music Appreciation, Guitar doubling on bass and much more. I am able to teach all music styles. I also play French Horn and bass at a high level. I love teaching and helping students on their own musical paths. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Play the music you want to play. I often use a combination of styles to get you to advance in your guitar skills whether you are a stone beginner or advanced. I've been teaching for over 20 years and can tailor lessons to the individual using the music you want and my large repertoire ranging from simple American Folk through Advanced modern music. I can get you to accompany,solo and also read music too( if you wish). I have concise approaches to all matters of technique, scale work and arpeggios. You can be confident that you are coming to an experienced teacher/player who cares deeply about music and loves helping the student progress.

Billy is a patient instructor who is perfect for a beginner with some musical knowledge. I feel like we accomplished quite a bit in one lesson and I am looking forward to advancing under his guidance! #totallyworthit
Flaminia D.
I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!
Lynn W.
I cannot recommend Billy enough. I studied jazz improvisation with Billy for three years, and later returned to study Brazilian guitar and Piedmont-style finger picking with him. I had been playing for more than twenty years when I started studying with him and he not only helped me improve my playing technically and creatively (on electric and nylon stringed guitars) but also expanded my knowledge of theory and helped me develop new approaches to composing and arranging. I am still working with the material he gave me and take lessons from him whenever my schedule allows.

I've played all my life and have my own band. I started teaching guitar in 2008. I've worked with hundreds of students taking beginners to advanced level of playing. I offer lessons from 2 studios located in Tulsa and Broken Arrow. I teach from a variety of books and programs to help students become well rounded musicians. As for equipment, I use Marshall, Fender, and Line 6 amps, Ibanez and Gibson guitars, Guitar Pro for creating lessons, Garage Band for recording, and have a large collection of guitar effects pedals.
On average within 2 - 3 months a beginning student will be reading, counting, and playing songs.
My goal is to keep my students interested and happy while making sure they develop the proper musical foundation/knowledge that will allow them grow, overcome their musical walls, and become the musician they desire to be.
My philosophy is to teach students to be smart musicians. It does you no good if you can play a song but don't know what you are actually doing. So,

I am an experienced guitar teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me.

I'm looking for eager students of all ages who would like to start learning the basics of the guitar! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of good playing habits (learning the right songs and techniques that you makes you a better musician!). I specialize in rock, funk and pop. I focus on playing by memory but sheet music and cheat sheets are also available upon request. I also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recording equipment, sheet music, and more.

Let's grab the guitar and let's start play some songs :)

10 Ways to Trick Yourself Into Practicing Guitar

  Nothing's worse than forgetting about your guitar practice time! Guitar teacher Jessica D. shares 10 fun ways to make sure that it doesn't happen to you... Playing guitar isn’t for the faint of heart. Its six strings require finger strength, and if you don’t practice, you simply won’t get better.
