A great start. I think he knows what I want, and how I want to learn guitar
Hunter A.
First lesson went very well. Looking forward to the next.
Deborah Dickson Jones
I just had my first lesson with Brett and he customized it according to my individual needs and circumstance. I am passionate about guitar and folk music but have no musical experience. Bretts plan is to start with the very basics and move forward from there. He was very patient with me and his directions were easy to follow. Though I am a senior I feel like I am 20 years old again and learning a new skill. Thanks Brett

Michelle makes my banjo playing easier and easier. I am feeling very comfortable. She points out all the bad habits I should not do, that is good for later down the road.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Through the foundation I've gained by the influences of Mel Bay, Hal Leonard, and Suzuki musical instruction methods, I compile my own teaching materials. Using personally constructed guitar lessons, I demonstrate, instruct, and guide the student based on my assessment of their individual needs, skill level, and progress. Lessons are formulated in Modules, and advancement through them is based on the student's personal aptitude, skill level, and practice commitment. Learning is accomplished by ear as well as through essential methods of musical notation (tablature, 5-line staff, rhythmic comprehension). Students are trained to perform written music as well as to write and express the music within themselves.
I'm an encouraging and motivating guitar teacher with a casual relaxed approach. Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience.

About Scott

The key to learning guitar......is finding the right instructor! I am an encouraging, effective guitar instructor and an experienced performing musician, offering in-person beginner through intermediate guitar instruction in my home and on line. It is very rewarding to me to help others alon

I'm enjoying my lessons with Scott. He has taught me a lot. He makes playing and learning exciting. I can't wait for my next lesson.
James
I started with Scott as a newbie and he has definitely helped me grow as a guitarist. He takes time and makes things easier to learn. As complicated learning can be, he simplifies it and breaks it down. When I feel like I’m not progressing he always shows me how I am. His modules are easy to follow. His teaching style is compatible with all types of learners whether you are visual, hands on or a listener. It’s not just business with him. He’s always available for questions after or between lessons. He’s knowledgeable in equipment so don’t hesitate to ask for some advice on what to buy. He’s affordable and lesson times are flexible. I highly recommend him for all ages and learning needs.
Curtis
Scott has been a great help to me, filling in the gaps and teaching exactly what I request: techniques, specific songs, and lesson times at work for me. He communicates well and follows up after each lesson with emails.

Jon is understanding of the student's needs. He is friendly and made my son feel welcome immediately.

I went to Jon with absolutely no musically background or training. He has been very patient and I have been amazed at how much I have learned in just a few months. I have not only learned quite a bit about playing the guitar, but I’ve also gained a greater awareness and appreciation of music. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

He has patience and is very clear and thorough when teaching and works at the students pace. In just a short while I was already learning some of my favorite songs, reading music, scales, music theory and writing my own tunes! I definitely recommend this teacher if you want to learn the guitar from top to bottom."

"Teresa is a wonderful intuitive teacher who takes her time to help children that are not so musically tuned to appreciate music. My 11 yr. old boy did not know what instrument to play nor did he want to play one, but Teresa was able to pinpoint one that he could start with and he progressed so much. My 6 yr. old daughter enjoyed a more free spirited song and instruments approach where she was introduced to sounds and singing. Milena wants to play the Piano now. I my self never played an instrument and I wanted my kids to be more tuned than me, I am so lucky to have found the guidance of such resourceful and kind spirited Lady. Thank You Teresa."
