Throughout my studies of theory and harmony, I realized how valuable it is to learn the basics of the guitar. I studied the guitar independently to learn the fingerings of the most useful chords. Students anxious to be able to play a song right off the bat are often pleased to discover that they can play through a whole song using only two or three chords. The guitar provides students with endless possibilities; they can experiment with different rhythms, never having to play a song the same way twice.

I grew up listening to classical music; I remember listening to a Mozart and a Grieg tape over and over again. By high school, I was interested in more recent popular music that carried on in the same tradition of greatness. Andrew Lloyd Webber first caught my attention. From there, I listened to the music of the ‘60s and became quite knowledgeable in the British Invasion. My ear for this type of music allows me to teach the guitar and provide students with an ample repertoire.

With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best (for example, I've found that music theory makes things click faster for some people and saps all the enjoyment out of learning an instrument for others). I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Extensive experience teaching rock, jazz and acoustic guitar. I base my teaching around the interests of the student, and also make sure to cover important fundamentals of music such as scales, chords and music theory.

Devin is an excellent and knowledgeable teacher! He taught me the basics of Ableton and the details of music production, recording audio/midi tracks, sound libraries, effects, etc. He guided me through the songwriting process, and made this complex software easier to navigate through and understand. I highly recommend Devin for anyone interested in enhancing their skills in music production. Thank you Devin for all your help!

In just a few minutes of observing my primitive play, she was able to help me improve and correct my technique. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute...and not one minute of the lesson was wasted.
She is focused, clear, and precise in her instruction. At the same time, she creates a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in which to learn."

Guitar Lessons in Columbus, OH

Simply taking guitar lessons in Columbus is often insufficient to mastering the instrument. Instead, you need to find motivation and discover new styles of playing by watching other musicians, learning more than just the pieces you cover in your lessons by purchasing sheet music and tablature, and enhancing your playing by performing live or finding new gear. Here are a few ideas to make the most of learning guitar in Columbus.

1) Guitar Festivals Jazz Guitar Festival Held at Denison University, the annual Jazz Guitar Festival is a weekend of performances, concerts, and clinics, all of which are free and open to the public. It is your chance to meet top guitarists, whatever your level of playing, and experience genres ranging from classical to bluegrass. Attend every October, and return to your guitar lessons in Columbus feeling inspired. (http://denison.edu/academics/music/whats-happening/18th-annual-denison-jazz-guitar-festival)

LMU Guitar Festival Loyola Marymount University holds the annual Guitar Festival every March, inviting guitarists from around the world to perform in a weekend of concerts. You can purchase tickets for individual performances or for the entire festival, with a discounted price for students. (http://cal.lmu.edu/event/11th_annual_guitar_festival#.VVo5Q2CZ5UQ)

Live Music The Tree Bar This bar and live music venue presents a different local or national act up to five nights a week. Come down when your favorite guitarists are playing or, better still, book the bar for your own band to perform. The Tree Bar is always welcoming to local talent, providing musicians with a platform to improve their recognition. (http://treebarcolumbus.com/)

Natalie’s With shows every night from Tuesday to Sunday, at Natalie's you can see guitarists and groups perform all styles of music, including genres that are difficult to experience elsewhere, such as soft rock, Irish music, Motown, swing, ragtime, Dixieland, and bluegrass. Check the event calendar before you go to find something that inspires you, as there are several guitar acts every week. (http://www.nataliescoalfiredpizza.com/calendar)

2) Music Stores Guitar Center The Guitar Center has everything guitar that you could wish for — from left-handed and vintage guitars to accessories and practice aids. Check out the selection to find material or equipment to improve your playing and supplement your enjoyment of guitar lessons in Columbus. (http://stores.guitarcenter.com/columbus?source=4GOA5AJBB)

Fifth Avenue Fret Shop Fifth Avenue Fret Shop is the place to go if you need to repair or restore your guitar. You can also order custom instruments or pick up spare parts, strings, and accessories. (http://www.fretshop.com/)

Only a qualified teacher is able to explain proper technique and ensure that you play to the best of your abilities. This means that, if you want to play as well as the musicians you see perform at events, festivals, and venues, you should start taking private guitar lessons in Columbus as soon as possible!
