Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.

Learn how to accompany yourself and play your own songs!

About Knox
Ear Training, Sightreading, Music Theory, and Harmony are all essential parts of mastering any musical endeavor. Your instrument is merely the voice by which you express your musicianship. HURRY - I only have room for 8 to 10 students!

I've performed on THE VOICE, AMERICAN IDOL, GREASE LIVE! & others. My music has been featured on NBC, ABC, CBS, and domestic & international films. I've coproduced KRISTIN BELL, JEFF DUNHAM, WANG LEEHOM, & LINYU CHUN.

I received undergraduate training at BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC (BM) in Boston where I studied with Tiger Okoshi, Charles Lewis, John Bavicchi, Richard Davis, & Gregory Fritze, and was a Graduate Assistant at the HODGSON SCHOOL OF MUSIC at UGA (MM) where I was a protege of the late Fred Mills (1935-2009), founding member of the Canadian Brass.

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.

Don is an amazing teacher to say the least!! I've playing guitar for years with never a full grasp of harmony, and within a few short hours he caught me up on some of the most vital information I was missing. A true expert teacher.. Give him a chance... You won't be disappointed!!!

I believe that music should never feel like a chore and that music learning should be curiosity-driven, active, enjoyable, and emphasize self-expression. Learn good habits from the beginning and build techniques from a solid foundation to adapt to any musical style you'd like!

About Diana
Diana is a classical guitarist and pianist originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to guitar and piano, she teaches voice, ukulele and songwriting in New York City, where she now resides. She spent the better part of a decade studying closely with two mentors: celebrated classical guitarist Lynn McGrath, and revered pianist Stephen Montoya. As a high school student, Diana regularly performed in recitals and participated in competitions and festivals across the U.S., including the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) and The Parkening Guitar Competition, where she received masterclass instruction from distinguished guitarists like David Russell, Ana Vidovic and Christopher Parkening. She went on to study classical guitar at the North Carolina School for the Arts as the youngest student admitted in her focus at the age of 17, and la
ter completed her studies in music performance, composition, and foreign language at the University of New Mexico. In addition to her classical studies, Diana sang in a variety of traveling choral groups throughout high school and took small roles in the Broadway musicals ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘Rent’.

In the course of her studies, Diana was honored with awards of excellence from the National Honors Society of Guitar and recognized for her performances with the critically acclaimed woman’s guitar ensemble, ‘Presti Quartet.’ She was selected two years in a row to perform 1st chair in the New Mexico ALLSTATE Guitar Orchestra - the first-ever young woman to earn that position. The following year she was chosen as one of twelve guitarists to represent music in education in the United States.

In the time since her studies, Diana has called many places home. She lived in New Orleans for several years and in that time her music interests broadened to embrace traditional American forms, such as jazz and the blues. During that time she ran a private music practice, teaching children and young adults to become proficient with music. She continued her travels, her studies and her teachings during the summer of 2017 in Spain. She has been living, studying and teaching in New York City since the fall of 2017, always carrying with her the belief that music should never feel like a chore and that learning music should be curiosity-driven, active, enjoyable, and emphasize self-expression. Diana believes in building a strong foundation of musical knowledge with her students by providing the tools to create good habits from the beginning and encouraging effective, deliberate practice. It is her mission to inspire aspiring musicians as a music educator and bring a life-long love of music to her students.

I believe the perfect guitar lesson should be composed of 3 things: First developing a warm up/metronome practice/reading music. Second something the student is interested in learning(a song, technique), and Lastly something I think will make you progress as a musician like scales, improvisation, various guitar techniques.

I believe the majority of the lesson should be concentrated on what the student whats to learn so that they stay interested and want to keep coming back for lesson, and the rest of the time should be decided to teaching the student musical ideas that will progress them forward as a musician.
