Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I am a bass player first, not a guitarist who also teaches bass. Students will learn technique, theory and groove from a teacher who understands that as bass players, we are in a unique position. Since bass is both a harmony and rhythm instrument we have the opportunity to develop into leaders in

David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.
Chris H.
David went over basic music theory and rhythm with me, and corrected some technique issues. He explained things clearly and when we put some of it into practice in the final minutes I saw instant results. Absolutely excited to do my homework and for my next lesson.
Robert F.
As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended.......

I've taken lessons with Emi as a beginner and later as a more experienced guitarist. Always a great lesson. He's a fantastic teacher for people of any experience level. He goes out of his way to tailor his lessons to whatever you specifically want to learn.
Will
I've been trying to teach myself to play the guitar for months now, and I learned more with Emiliano in 2 lessons than I did in those months. If you really want to learn to play, get a lesson with Emiliano. It is worth it. He makes things easy to understand, and was super patient with me who has zero musical talent. I really cannot recommend him enough.
Matthew
Emiliano is a fantastic teacher. I knew little to nothing about guitar before working with him and he was able to easily walk me through everything. Thanks Emiliano!

My teenage son is enjoying his lessons. Brian is a very knowledgeable teacher and obviously wants his students to enjoy playing (chooses songs that interest them). He also gives a good amount of material for my son to learn throughout the week. Fun to hear him practicing!
Samuel
Brian is a wonderful teacher, our son has been learning and enjoying the classes. Would definitely recommend Brian.
Jina
I learned a lot in my first lesson with Brian. He clearly knows the guitar inside and out. The pace was on the faster side, but he answered all my questions about technique and theory. Beyond what I wanted to focus on (technique), he's laying a solid foundation for theory so that I don't have go rely on the capo or online tabs as much. He also gave me useful scale exercises to build up finger independence and articulation. So far so good.

My students have spanned every age, experience level, and walk of life through the years... Some wanted to join a band, some wanted to go on to music school, some were aspiring songwriters, and others were simply interested in an awesome hobby! I've been teaching acoustic guitar for over 13 years and teach a mix of playing technique, music theory, ear training, as well as working on songs and styles of playing that the student is interested in. Along with my teaching experience, I have plenty of stage and studio experience as well which allows me to bring those things to the table. More real world and less dry and academic you might say...

About Cameron

STUDYING WITH ME: Learning guitar should be interesting and fun! While we're studying all the different aspects of the instrument, you'll also be learning how to play your favorite songs and solos! I approach each student as an individual and structure their lessons according to what I determine

Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.
Pat A.
A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

My method of teaching focuses on building up strengths and knowledge so that a student can become proficient at learning on their own. I do this by creating a custom curriculum for each individual I teach. This accomplishes two things, keeping you as a student entertained and enthusiastic. I have background in music theory, and have taught for several years to beginners, and intermediate students. This has allowed me to learn to adapt to each individuals learning style so that they progress quickly, and comfortably.

Really good experience learning a new instrument. He really helped accelerate the early stages of playing an unfamiliar instrument so that I could start playing actual songs much quicker.
Rebecca
Austin is awesome! He really has amazed us. Our kids have nothing but progressed since taking lessons and they performed wonderfully at their recital. He is always present, provides feedback, and is just good with the kids. What can I say? We highly recommend him. He is now teaching our kids virtually which has been a seamless transition. Thank you Austin for all that you do!
Jill Williams
Austin makes such a big difference in my son's life. He enjoys learning to play the piano and he enjoys the conversations they have together. Austin is very patient and takes the time to make sure Jayke understands what and why he is learning a piece. Jayke has autism - not that this should make a difference - but it does. Kids with autism have poor focus, lack motivation, struggle alternating tasks, and have poor communication skills. I'm not sure if he would stick with playing if it wasn't for Austin. He never makes Jayke feel discouraged or inadequate when he doesn’t get a song right away. His motivation and kind words keep my son wanted to learn.

An experienced guitar player of 15 years. Especially good with beginners including both very young and older students. It's never too early or late to start playing! Will cater a specific personal lesson plan to your desires to make sure we move at YOUR best pace. We'll build a solid foundation so that you can learn how to teach yourself and continue to grow and love music long after these lessons. We can get you up and running with your favorite tunes or start delving into the musical theory side of things. I make sure that our lessons are fun but also challenging and I make sure we spend some time learning how to build finger strength, how to improvise, and (most importantly) how to play with other musicians!

I only took lessons for a month because I really didn’t have the time because of work and other chores I needed to give attention to but Greg was really friendly and patient and if I had the time to really focus on guitar, with the help from Greg, I’d probably be awesome by now.🤙🏽

"Although it was the first lesson , It is obvious Ben is very good on teaching.His approach is totally according to student's needs and level (it is very important!) He is very kind person and explains the things very well .My 13 years old daughter liked his teaching so much. Most important for us,was He does not start with boring cliches which you can find anywhere in the planet . You start to play with Ben from the first lesson. He is also very cooperative and flexible and open for the new ideas and requests. I strongly recommend him for all level guitarists , especially who already knows a few things and wants to improve to next level . Regards"

"Greg is an excellent teacher. He keeps lessons interesting and caters to what his student wants to learn. The very first class he asked me to come next class with 5 songs that I ultimately wanted to learn. Over the course of the following lessons, he would incorporate skills needed to play those songs. He would reference my "dream songs" when learning other skills and explain that I would need this later to be able to play my songs. It is awesome because all while I was learning what I thought was random guitar knowledge, he was prepping me to play my "dream songs". He is also hilarious! He has a great sense of humor which helps keep the lessons fun and interesting. He is easy to approach if I am confused by something and is able to come at it in a different manner to get me to truly understand. He also has immense patience which is awesome for someone like me who doesn't always have time to practice as much as I would like. I would highly recommend Greg to any age student as he knows how to make learning guitar fun and approachable!"
