My teaching approach: I'll help you figure out your musical goals, and customize a lesson plan to get you there (ex: performance technique, music theory, music business coaching, musicology, exploring new musical genres, song selection and interpretation).

Jason vocally coached me during many studio sessions over the years. Not only is he an excellent musician in diverse genres, but he is patient, attentive, and communicates clearly. He knows how to give the right amount of support to help vocalists find their very best sound and style for a particular genre. I would recommend Jason for any singer looking to generally improve their voice, prepare for an audition, recording, or performance.

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

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.

Brian is very friendly and ofcourse a professional. Today was our first lesson, and it was a great experience, I look forward to continue learning from him. Thank you Brian! 😊

Had lessons with Gabe for many years. I continually use things I learned during our lessons and definitely feel my love of playing guitar was solidified while he was my teacher! Have play nearly every day since then (almost 9 years ago?) I can still play Out of Nowhere from memory and hold my guitar differently/sit differently/pick differently because of him. Recording an album now and have him to thank for my skillzzzz :)

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

As a player and teacher I specialize in rock, free improvisation, and classical but am also highly proficient in jazz, blues, funk, folk and more. I develop each curriculum based on the student's musical interests. We closely study the technique and theory behind songs and artists of the student's choosing. I encourage interdisciplinary courses of study that touch on many different subjects, including music theory and composition/songwriting, but ultimately the student's goals and interests guide my lessons.

About Dylan

I have a BA in Music from NYU and have been teaching private guitar lessons for 10 years. I am an expert guitarist, composer, arranger and teacher. In my lessons I am able to cover many topics, including rock, metal, jazz, classical, improvisation, transcription, composition, harmonic and rhythmic

Great teacher - patient, flexible, incredibly knowledgeable, and takes you where you want to go with the instrument. I highly recommend!!
Steve
Dylan's an awesome instructor! He's patient, friendly, and open to helping you learn whatever style of guitar playing you'd like. And really flexible and understanding with scheduling. I hadn't played guitar in years when I started back up with Dylan and he was great and informative with helping me through the basics again.

This brief lesson was helpful, especially since its my first time learning. I learned a few chords and now have some homework to do. Very personable and straightforward! I just moved back to Dallas and needing some instructions to finally get started.

"Oliver is the best. I first met Oliver when my 8-year-old daughter took lessons from him. Because of his high energy, upbeat and patient approach, my daughter loved her lessons and made big progress as a beginner guitarist. Given her praise of him, I thought I would try lessons myself as an intermediate and its been great. In a few weeks, I've learned techniques, licks and music theory which has quickly taken my playing to another level. Out time together has also enhanced my interest in music in general. I highly recommend Oliver to anyone who wants to learn guitar or music theory."

"Steven has been amazing!! I have little to no experience playing guitar, but I'm already getting the hang of playing well known songs! He does a great job of critiquing but also making the lesson fun! He tells me exactly what I need to do and the tools I need for the following lessons, so I always have a plan AND it's all in the comfort of my own home. I would highly recommend Steven, and if you're skeptical about taking an online lesson, don't be, because the attention Steven gives during lessons makes you feel like he's right there! Happy Strumming!"

"I took lessons from Greg for guitar some years ago and his methods really helped me understand music with the way he taught chord theory and such. It applied to literally every instrument I learned afterwards.

Greg also has a plenty of patience for his students and is really good at encouraging growth and understanding in his students. Sometimes I would come in with a song I wanted to learn that was way more advanced than I was at the time, but rather than say I couldn't play it or to wait until later, he would take that difficult song and help break it down into what I did know and we'd go from there and as I result I felt I learned quickly, as well as understood how to break down songs into their more basic elements which would become later on for when I wrote my own music or lead in bands.

All in all a great experience and I feel like I owe a lot of my musical ability to the lessons I took with Greg."
