I'm obsessed with Ableton! I've been using it since version 3 and every piece of Trailer & TV music I've done in my career was with Ableton. From Trailer Sound Design to Hip Hop to Rock, I've got you covered! From getting started to digging in.

About Kyle
TakeLessons.com Instructor since 2012, Kyle K. is now available for online lessons worldwide featuring a great screen sharing experience to maximum involvement with students!

Kyle has been playing guitar for over 20 years, been writing for over 15 years and has been producing music for over 10 years. He has developed his own method of teaching to positively build on the student's strengths, dexterity, ear-training, natural technique, memorization and creativity. The goal is to always design lessons around you as an individual to help you reach your goals as an artist and musician. Whether it's guitar, bass, songwriting or production this method is used to maximize results!

A word from Kyle K:
"I love music! To me, it's a way of life. From listening to playing to writing and of course teaching. I grew up with music all around
me at school and home. My dad was a piano player and teacher so music has been a part of my life since day one and I want to share what I have learned. Everyone has a unique musical talent and I enjoy helping them find it. I believe that anyone can be an excellent musician. Playing an instrument should be a fun and creative adventure. Whether it's strumming at home, playing out in the clubs, or writing the next big hit, I will do my best to get you there!

My musical life began when I was in 5th grade and my dad bought me a saxophone, which I played for over 12 years. I quickly learned how fast I could improve if I simply kept playing with focus. When I hit my teen years I fell in love with rock music and mowed enough lawns to buy my first guitar. I jammed and wrote songs with many other musicians and several bands over the years. We played countless shows and released a few albums. Now I write and produce music and sound design daily for TV, Film and Trailers for companies like Disney, Universal, MTV, NFL and many more.

I started teaching 11 years ago and found that it is one of my favorite things to do. Helping others grow into great musicians is rewarding and fun. I've learned that from grade school to retirement, each student is a unique and special individual. My lessons reflect that fact so that we can reach all your goals together. *My personal goal is to get my students to understand and write music that will stay with them and encourage them to continue."

All lessons take place in a fully operational Digital Recording Studio and dedicated lesson room. Gaining real world playing experience with current technology is a definite advantage over traditional lessons. This also allows the student to capture ideas when songwriting and provides a unique playing experience. Imagine looking back years down the line, listening to something you wrote and hearing the improvements and your own personal music history. That's what writing and recording as you learn is all about.

*** Lesson Details ***
Everyone is different, and every lesson should be suited to fit the individual. Depending on the type of lessons (guitar, bass, music production, theory, etc.) the style teaching will be adjusted to fit. It's all about YOUR goals and needs.

Each student is going to receive lessons based on their preferences of genre and style of music they desire to play. I expect my students to practice regularly and have a good time as their abilities and knowledge grow. By working together, we can focus on goals and problem solving to get you to the next level of play. Most importantly, we are going to have a blast while we learn to play music!

*We'll start slow and build your knowledge base with each lesson.
*You can expect to understand what you are playing AND be able to write your own music is desired.
*You will be given everything you'll need to succeed including custom made drums and songs to play with so you can improve at home.

Let's start learning and improving today!

Kyle is a great guitar teacher. He understands the theory as well as the mechanics of playing well. After I started taking lessons from him, I started to make consistent progress in my guitar playing, week after week. Before I started I could only play the most common open chords, and after a few months I can now play most bar chords, scales, how to find chords for the given key, transposing songs, and overall I understand the fretboard a lot better. We also work on arpeggiating, rhythm and other skills. I can recommend Kyle to anyone who wants to improve their guitar playing.

Kyle is an amazing guitar coach!! He is patient, flexible, and extremely knowledgeable on all things music. It amazes me that he can listen to a track once and immediately know exactly how to play it. I have come so far since I began training with him. I would highly recommend Kyle to anyone interested in learning music, regardless of skill level.

Once's experience with the program will determine what to expect Regardless, students will learn new techniques and music theory.

About Philip
Guitarist Philip L. was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, where he began his musical studies at a young age. He was accepted to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, named by the Grammy Foundation as the top performing arts high school in the nation, and after graduating, received a scholarship to attend Stetson University. Under the direction of Dr. Stephen Robinson, the head of the guitar department at Stetson University, he was able to refine his skills and learn a great deal about the interpretation of music on the guitar.
After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Music, Philip became an instructor at University High School in Orange City, Florida. There he directed the guitar program, which he built, and, outside of teaching, Philip performed professionally (guitar and voice) around Central Florida in various groups and styles
of music, including Rock, Pop, and Jazz. Since then, he was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Akron as a Teaching Assistant and later received his Master’s under the tutelage of Stephen Aron. Philip is currently working towards his Doctorate at FSU. Philip has played a number of feature concerts and masterclasses with great guitarists of our time, such as David Russell, Andrew York, Dusan Bogdanovic, Roland Dyens, Michael Chapdelaine, and many other artists.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*** Lesson Details ***
The first step will be evaluating the student's musical and technical skill level, then I build a curriculum from that point. As an example, a beginning student would learn how to read music, play basic rhythms, use proper left and right hand technique, and the notes in the first position on individual strings. After I have evaluated the current level of the student and their musical interest, I will begin to move my curriculum around their various needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will have a music stand for you to use at your lesson. I require the student to have their own instrument so that they may practice outside of their lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
Classical - Pop - Jazz - Songwriting - Digital Arts - Recording - Music Production - Theory - General Music

Besides being a very skilled guitarist, Phillip is very professional and reliable. He has a very laid back personality which really worked well for my shy 7-year-old daughter. He was patient and encouraging.

I have been working alongside GC at a music school for a few years now. He is a very knowledgable and versatile teacher and musician. His students stick with him for the long haul. GC is great at gauging where the student is at musically and what it will take to push them to the next level. I highly recommend this guy.

GC was a great teacher! He was perfect for what I needed. Specifically, GC has met me where I am in terms of my skills and experience. I am a more advanced student than GC typically gets. Instead of teaching me exercises and songs segments, which I have done with other teachers, he focused on developing my musicality and improvisation concepts! I love working with GC!

Brian is great. I could not have asked for a better teacher. He had me up and running on Pro Tools after the first lesson, and I am a true beginner. He is so incredibly well versed on the entire recording process, and excellent in breaking down difficult topics into layman terms. I give Brian my highest recommendation.

Ableton is one of the best music software out there and I love teaching it! It is a super flexible program, which means it can be daunting for the beginner. Whether your passion is hip-hop, EDM or avant-garde, Ableton is an amazing way to make music and I am passionate about helping you on your way to being a super-producer.

About Fionn
I'm a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, and I'm extremely passionate about helping others reach their potential! Learning an instrument can be a difficult process but with the right teacher it can be an extremely rewarding one. I understand that different students have different wants and needs and I'm 100% focused on delivering the right service for you!

I've spend the last few years performing on all sorts of stages, from intimate jazz clubs in Boston to Glastonbury, the largest festival in England. I appreciate the varied ways we all experience different types of music and I want to teach you music YOU want to learn. If you want to learn theory, that's fine too but I understand that not everyone wants to.

Let me know as soon possible so we can get started!

I got bass lessons from Fionn in 2016, and it was fantastic. He's a brilliant teacher, and extremely patient. I switched from drums so he basically had to teach me music theory and how to read music too, which he did with ease. Really enjoyable lessons that I learned a lot from, I'd highly recommend Fionn as a teacher.

I just began playing guitar a year ago, but had terrible technique. I began taking lessons with Fionn and noticed a huge difference in my playing almost immediately. Fionn is an incredible teacher and so easy going, I couldn't recommend him enough! I have started playing in front of small audiences now which I never would have had the confidence to do before. He's also great value for money! All I can say is TAKE HIM!!

About Noah
Berklee College of Music '16 - Voice principle, B.M. Songwriting
I have taken a lot of voice lessons with a lot of different teachers. Most teachers are hard and fast in their opinions about styles that are "worthy" or "not worthy" of teaching. I am confident in the fact that learning R&B is no better or worse than learning classical music, musical theater or jazz or rock. They ALL provide benefits to the voice, to the musician. I've sung and played in a wide variety of ensembles and styles myself, from psychedelic rock to 'Singin' in the Rain' to Jazz to classical arias, to synth pop. My goal is to find music that moves the student emotionally wether it was on the radio or not. From there we can mix in exercises and adaptations the emphasize vocal/musical health, musicianship and fun. After all, if it isn't fun or cathartic, why make mu
sic at all? I also play piano, electric bass and guitar, with a degree in Songwriting from Berklee CoM, so I'm well equipped to assist young singer/songwriters.
