Atlanta, GA

View Full Profile

My years of teaching have helped me to understand what it takes to make consistent progress in learning the guitar. My approach is focused on helping the student acquire habits that will aid them in forging solid technique and musicianship, consequently removing limitations to allow access to all the joy that music has to offer.

About Wes
I studied classical guitar and composition at Asbury College and later more in depth guitar studies rock, jazz, and classical at the Atlanta Institute of Music. I have been teaching steadily for the past ten years as well as spending my time with various other musical projects such as leading worship for my church, performing for various parties and weddings, and composing and recording music for a short film. I use my experience and broad understanding of music to inform the way that I teach, so that my students have a robust experience of all aspects of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a lesson plan that I follow for beginning students to get them through the basics. As a teacher I am laid back, and positive, but always try to give the student a clear reflection of how they are progressing. I find that some students thrive with
a lot of structure and others prefer a looser approach and I am quite comfortable teaching both ways. If the student maintains a consistent practice regimen, they should be able to play songs from the radio within 3 or 4 months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room with an amp, keyboard, computer, desk, parents can sit on couch in a separate room

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my student to provide their instrument (including amp if necessary) and any instructional materials required.

*** Specialties ***
I have had a lot of experience teaching beginning and intermediate students with method books, and have used them to teach reading, theory, technique, and repertoire. Most often, I take a slightly looser approach which I feel allows me to mold my teaching to fit the individual student's needs

As everyone is different with different goals, ages, and levels of proficiency so to is my method of instruction for each individual... Beginners will expect to quickly begin enjoying the instrument without intimidation by it ... they will learn... 1. Proper left and right hand, arm, and body positioning. 2. Proper (not common !) pick grip and angles. 3. Strongly "suggested" reading of music. 4. How to play notes and first position chords. 5. Rhythm focus to play along with all previously listed to some of their favorite songs... An intermediate to advanced Classical student may expect a doses of technique, sight reading, and theory within a particular lesson for say, ABRSM exam prep.. An Intermediate to Advanced Blues, Rock, or Shred student may expect more focus on scale and arpeggio applications for improvisation.

About Don
Hi,
My name is Don and have been teaching guitar for many years. Currently I teach at the New York School of Music in Walden, N.Y. as well as at my home studio. From 2003 -early 2015 I was a staff instructor at Imperial Guitar and Soundworks of Newburgh, N.Y.
I teach all levels and ages for such styles as Classical/Flamenco Guitar(including ABRSM EXAM PREP.), Blues, Rock, Shred, Metal, Jazz, Country, and General Instruction for Beginners and those just wanting "to know how to play some tunes.".
I tailor instruction to my students' goals... not mine. Goal #1..we're having fun as we learn !.. this is not to be confused with Navy Seals Training !

Years ago I took Guitar Lessons at a local music store ( a very prominent one) as a raw beginner and quickly became frustrated with my lack of progress. Although my teacher was a great player and "very hot" to look at I soon began to feel like I was merely his "practice dummy."... I'd play the chords he showed me, endlessly,... while he seemed to be just practicing his solo playing. ... I then tried On-Line Lessons from various sites which were actually even less helpful and soon just lost interest completely.
A friend of mine said she had taken lessons from a Don DeBold for about 5 years before going off to college and highly recommended him.
I've now been taking lessons from Don for almost 2 years and having a blast ! I've learned how to play along with most of my favorite songs (mainly Blues and Rock) and now I'm learning to play Solo Guitar that needs no accompaniment !
Unlike my first teacher, during many lessons Don barely plays or even has his Strat on his lap because he's busy concentrating on what I'm doing !
He's a stickler yet lots of fun at the same time> I super recommend him as a Guitar and Music Teacher !!! Aneiah J.

The first thing I do when I meet a student is to interview the student and find out why they want to learn how to play the guitar and what are some of their goals. Then I find out what style of music they would like to learn. I have the student come up with ten songs they would like to learn. I take this information and structure future guitar lessons around the essential elements of these songs. I design each lesson to teach the specific skills required to learn those songs. I create an organized binder guitar workbook and having a teaching degree I create all of the lessons to meet each students individual needs that include lessons on theory, technique, chords, rhythm, scales, arpeggios, songs, song form, and exercises etc. I use a color coded method to teach scales, chords and theory that I created that help students not only understand scales but also they are able to see visually where chords come from.

New Paltz, NY

I adapt to the personality and learning style of each individual student. Every student learns differently. I do not teach out of music books. My approach seeks to combine music theory with intuitive musical ear training so that a student can be self-sufficient, eventually being able to combine knowledge with technical skill to play music by ear in real-world situations. The aim is to free the creative mind to enable natural, spontaneous expression.

About Dan
I am not one of the lucky few who was born with inherent musical talent. I've had to work hard for my knowledge and ability and I believe that this gives me an edge over teachers who are naturally musical. I once struggled to learn even the basics of music. This enables me to personally identify & understand the struggles that a developing student faces. Many teachers born with musical talent fail to be good guides through the musical wilderness because sometimes they simply cannot relate to a student's struggle. I've been teaching for six years. For four of those years I taught guitar at Aleoop, a musical enrichment program at the Brookside & Hillside elementary schools in Allendale. I work best with younger students. I've found that because of my age young students find me more relatable than my older counterparts. My aim as a teacher i
s to empower my students with the gifts of self-expression and confidence. My focus is on artistic enrichment, enjoyment and technical proficiency.

My son has been randomly picking up his guitar to try things from the lessons which a is a huge improvement from the last time we tried lessons. I attribute that to Connor's instructions and passion for what he does. He is also punctual and a good communicator. I highly recommend Connor as an instructor, especially for kids!

I believe that it is crucial to find an artists uniqueness and work on their talents and to achieve what they set out to accomplish.

Luke is probably the best teacher you can get right now in my area. He is super knowledgeable but also very practical. He will understand where you want to go as a player and will steer you there with a lot of patience. In my short time with him, while I still have a lot to learn, my ability to listen to music, demystify it and then use it as inspiration for my own playing, has grown significantly.
