I will adapt lesson style to your needs. If you want to learn how to sight read music, we will work with the Hal Leonard Guitar Method for Beginners. For children, I use the FJH Beginner Guitar Method series. If you want to learn to play chords and play your favorite songs, then we will use Guitar for Absolute Beginners by the NYC Guitar School. Along with these books we will also choose some of your favorite songs and learn to play them.

About Kelsey
I love singing! I've been singing for as long as I can remember, and I've been creating songs and playing guitar since shortly after that. I have a Bachelor's in Music from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, MI and I have been a full time working musician for 8 years.

In March 2017 I started a YouTube channel called, Simply Songcraft. I write a song week, and vlog about it. I also post weekly tutorials on songwriting, guitar, and voice.

I teach acoustic guitar for rock, pop, folk, country, blues, and worship music. I've been playing guitar for 36 years, and teaching guitar for 14 years. When you study acoustic guitar with me you will learn chords, strum patterns, finger style, scales, practical music theory, improvisation, sight reading, tablature, and most importantly songs by your favorite artists. I love to teach people to play their favorite music!

He took extra time when we first started to find out where my daughter was at in her skill and ability, made a book and plan for her, and the took extra time each week to answer every question and really try to teach her effectively. She enjoyed it and wanted to go because she was learning and improving. She even started to appreciate the homework he gave. Will definitely consider him again if the logistics work out.

I teach beginner all the way advanced students who are looking to improve as musicians or learn the guitar from square one. What's most important to me as a teacher is helping you achieve your goals in music. I have a decades plus worth of experience teaching and playing guitar and am currently an active member on the Seattle music scene performing at various venues around town; As an educator, I have 8 years of experience teaching students of all levels and styles and my focus for the student is tailoring lessons to best meet students' goals and putting them in the best possible scenario to achieve them.

About Jesse
My name is Jesse and I am a guitarist who lives in Seattle, WA. I graduated from the University of Southern California with Cum Laude Honors in 2015. I maintain a busy schedule of performances accompanying jazz singers in the area and I am on faculty at Cornish College of the Arts as an accompanist in the jazz voice department.

I began teaching beginning guitar lessons to friends and classmates in high school. Ever since I picked up the guitar, I knew it was something that I wanted to pursue professionally because of the joy that it brought me. Being able to share that with other people is something I am very passionate about. I continued teaching beginning guitar and advanced jazz harmony to other guitarists in the music program to help pay tuition in college at USC. I taught at Music and Arts in Redmond during the summer after finish
ing college before moving to the Bothell store within the same organization. I also began teaching at the Andrew White School of Music around the same time. I teach beginners on both guitar and bass as well as jazz improvisation on guitar.

Jazz is a style of music I specialize in and I teach it like teaching a language as I firmly believe that jazz is a language. I teach improvisation to not only guitar, but to all instruments as the concepts are the same. Improvisation lessons are fun and interactive and challenge you to be creative, which is what art is all about!

My teaching method is very flexible, as I am very aware that students learning styles and goals vary greatly. I am a patient teacher who will work to help put a student in a position to be successful and achieve his or her goals through lesson plans and teaching methods tailored to meet the student's learning style. Seeing students succeed and have fun making progress and improving as a musician brings me a lot of joy!

There is nothing more frustrating for a student than feeling like they're treading water trying to teach themselves. My goal is to make the learning process as fun as possible! One of the ways I do that is giving the student the opportunity to experiment with improvisation and explore the instrument during lessons and for when they practice at home to supplement the more formal training. This helps students develop their own individual sound on the instrument from day one, is fun and interactive, and gives the student the chance to be creative when learning a new instrument..

My daughter is 14 years old and although she had been playing the guitar for several years she was ready to advance to jazz guitar. She began lessons with Jesse and it was instant progress, she always enjoys the lessons and she is really good thanks to the constant support of her teacher Jesse, she plays in the school jazz band and has shown huge improvement over the past year. Jesse is extremely flexible which has really helped us with our daughters busy schedule. I would recommend Jesse to anyone interested in quality guitar lessons.

I started taking guitar lessons with Barry shortly after I inherited an old vintage Martin that has been in my family for a while. I had not played in nearly 25 years. Barry's patience and creative spirit enabled me to begin really enjoying playing again. He actively listened to what I wanted to achieve and concentrated on those skills that have taken me to another level. After just a few lessons, I now play better than I ever could in my younger days. I highly recommend him for both a coach for experienced musicians and a teacher for those beginning to experience the joy of playing guitar.

About Jennifer
Hi, my name is Jennifer. I have been play guitar for over 10 years now, and teaching it for about 2 years. I am currently attending Arizona Christian University, and pursing my B.A in Music. I've played in bands, and been involved in many different types of performances. I start with teaching my students the basic skills needed to play guitar, then I build on what music they like to learn. I will also teaching basic music theory. I like to make lessons fun and interactive, and am open to teaching any genre. Our first lesson will be at a Starbucks near my house, so we can get to know each other in a comfortable public setting. Then we will transfer the lesson to my home studio or your preferred location once we know each other a little better.

Hello!,

Our lessons will be relaxed and fun. I take pride in tailoring my curriculum to the needs and goals of each individual student- This helps me make sure that you are learning at a pace that feels comfortable for you, yet challenging.

We will work together to develop both your musicianship and creativity. I am a firm believer in music being a healing and mind-opening practice. One of my primary goals while teaching is to give my students an outlet to express themselves in a healthy and meaningful way. Let's get started!

Topics we can focus on together:
- Theory
- Improvisation (rock solos!)
- Strumming/finger-picking patterns
- How to sing and play at the same time
- Songwriting/Recording techniques
- Lyric Writing
- Stage Presence
- Exploring different musical genres

About Dayna
Hello!,

My classical training began at age 10, when I started to play the viola. From there, I was able to translate my musical skills to violin, guitar, piano, voice, composition, and songwriting.

Originally a biology major at SUNY Purchase College, I quickly became restless knowing that I was unable to focus on music enough. So, I switched it up, followed my passion, and began studying music theory and production. Since then, my life has been focused on teaching, performing, writing, and recording music- and I wouldn't have it any other way!
It's been quite a journey, and I can't wait to share all that I've learned along the way with you.

Whether you are just starting out, or are looking to further the knowledge you already have, I will meet you at where you are, and help you to achieve your personal goals.

Together we can work o
n technique, theory, improvisation, ear-training, songwriting, and more!

Guitar lessons with me are unique because of the wide range of my musical interests, experiences, and passions. I've studied many different styles of music and feel comfortable teaching in any genre. I work hard to personalize each lesson to the individual learning style of my students and encourage their passion for music.

About Rees
I am a professional multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and producer. I graduated from USC Thornton School of Music with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance, specifically within Popular Music. Students can expect their lessons to be highly personalized based on their interests and learning styles. Having operated in so many facets musically, I know how much depth is involved in being a complete musician and I encourage my students to be lifelong music lovers. I've performed alongside wide ranging acts such as John Fogerty, Glenn Frey, The Beach Boys, X-Ambassadors, and Diplo, and I've been mentored by greats such as Patrice Rushen and Glen Ballard. Knowing the value that mentorship has played in my musical journey encourages me to pay-it-forward. I love working with students who are as curious and passionate as I am.

Rees inspired a love of music in my daughter that has lasted for the past 7 years when she first started with him. He has an attention to detail and music composition which he's able to incorporate into a fun learning environment. He's since moved from our area but his impression has lived on in my daughters love of music. Consider yourself incredibly fortunate if you have the opportunity to bring him into your child's musical instruction. We've yet to be able to recreate the Rees experience but our fortunate that the base he provided has carried us even now that he has moved on.

I'll teach you acoustic guitar across any genre; I am proficient in rock, pop, blues, funk, jazz, classical and some flamenco with respective picking, fingerpicking and other playing styles.

About Adrian
A great teacher or mentor or even friend can help shape one's life. I have had the great privilege to have been taught by some of the best and brightest musicians around the world and know first hand how mentors can awe one with infinite possibilities and opportunities that await in the world of sound. I only aim to give back some of this magic, and keep this wonder alive and spreading among everyone.

I have been playing guitar since I was 11 years old, producing music since I was 12 years old and have been actively involved in the recording and live music scenes of Las Vegas since the age of 14. I attended the Las Vegas Academy as a Guitar Major and recently graduated with my Associates of Business degree from CSN. I'm now 20 years old, and although that may seem young, I have a wealth of experience and knowledge that I would absolut
ely love to share with you. I can teach anything from guitar, bass, vocals, drums, some beginner piano, music theory, production and so much more.

To learn something, you must become obsessed with the craft- I've been obsessed with this craft since before my mind could even conceive what I was hearing! What better way to learn is there than to jump straight into the madness with someone (yours truly) who is already obsessed and constantly learning new things about all music and sounds?!

Let me help you realize and actualize the musical potential that you never knew you had!
