About Jonathan
About

I am a Florida native, active doctoral student, teacher and practitioner. My career includes performing and recording as a guitarist and teaching subjects such as music or math. Grade-school academic strengths in mathematics represent my enthusiasm for the subject. The math equivalent in music can be considered music theory, which is another passion of mine. I hope to take these well-rounded characteristics to teach and influence others with what I have learned in my education and career thus far.

Education & Teaching Experience:

I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts from Shenandoah University and hold a Masters of Music from the University of Akron and a Bachelor of Music from Stetson University (all degrees with a guitar performance emphasis). I also have a temporary teaching certificate for Music K-12 fro
m the Florida Department of Education. I have taught in Florida as a preferred substitute for general music classes, K-12. In college, I have given study sessions for music theory levels ranging from 4-part writing to post-serialism.

Degrees:
Doctorate of Musical Arts: Guitar Performance; Shenandoah University, expected May 2019
Master of Music: Guitar Performance; University of Akron, May 2014
Bachelor of Music: Guitar Performance; Stetson University, 2011

While giving lessons:
I ensure that every student receives fundamental foundation pertaining to the subject. While learning the basics, I advise that the student organizes their lessons and materials in a way that displays progress over time. With the proper knowledge, we can treat the heart of a subject with refinement in order to grasp its purpose and reason---whether its music or math.

Why?
My students have grown with confidence through a sense of accomplishment. Success does not only affect a person's well-being but can also impact other dimensions of their lives.

Learn to chicken pick, play slide and improvise over different chord progressions.

About Jon
I have been playing guitar since the age of 9. I have studied Classical, and Jazz at CCM's Prep Dept. in middle school and throughout high school as well as rock, folk, country etc. with other local teachers. I started teaching lessons at the age of 18 in local music stores and have never stopped. While doing this I attended The College of Mount St. Joseph where I studied Classical and Jazz guitar as well as Music Ed. In addition to my 22 years of private lesson experience, I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching general music in elementary schools. I believe it is my years as a student and instructor that enable me to be an effective teacher, having had learned what worked for me as a student, and what has shown to work as a teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
I cater my lesson to the individual. I like for students to have
a structured practice routine and working knowledge of music and their instrument, but it has to be fun. I have students who learn Classical, rock, and Jazz. Each lesson is different. Some people just want to be able to play their favorite songs by a camp fire, and others want to go on to perform at Carnegie Hall. I enjoy teaching both lessons and put forth the same enthusiasm for each one. You get out of the guitar or bass what you put into it in terms of learning and practicing. The level of achievement is up to you, I will help guide you to meet your goals regardless of how large or small they are.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Spare music room: guitars, amps, bass; computer with recording software, ProTools seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have all the equipment necessary. I would like the student to have an instrument, but if not I can provide one for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I'm really pretty versatile. Over 18 years of teaching anywhere from 80 to 100 students a week will do that.

· Banjo · In studio
I went into banjo lessons not knowing if I could master the instrument or not, being nearly 70 years old. While by no means a master (and never going to be), I have learned so much from Sam and he has shown such patience with me. I often leave my lessons wondering how he ever puts up with me - but he does. His encourgement, laid-back style, expertise and knowledge of music (plus theory) and the banjo is impressive. His good nature makes my lessons so much more pleasant. I would say Sam is a a great teacher for both a beginner or an accomplished musician or in between. He likes to talk and demonstrate (nice and slowly if requested) so I would recommend hour-long lessons at first.

It would have been better if there was more to work on than one drill. Neisha is good at practicing as we declared at the beginning and doesn’t have much to work on. We won’t be continuing.

I have been playing guitar in various capacities for over 40 years. I have taught beginners and intermediate students for the last 8 years. What ever your desires are relating to guitar, be it learning to play songs from a song book, learning to figure songs out by ear, improve your current playing abilities, I can help! And make it fun!

I have taught students ranging in age from 8 yrs old, to adults in their 50s. If you enjoy music, and want to dive deeper into it, just to play for your own enjoyment, or, if you have an itch to learn to play in a band or jam with some friends, I can get you there!!

About Andy
I started playing guitar in the late 60s. Started playing professionally for approximately 5 years around 1978. Played music off and on until 1993 when I got involved with my churches worship band. Began teaching at Sidekick Studios in 2008.

I teach beginners and intermediate students of all types, from 9 yr olds wanting to play Taylor Swift songs to 55 yr old guys wanting to learn blues and rock. I can play and teach a variety of styles including country, pop, rock, blues, folk and introduction to jazz.

I get the most satisfaction when a student latches on to an idea and runs with it, or when a student thinks they can't do something and together we work and accomplish it!

I am into my TENTH year of teaching and plan on being around a long while!

Also, I am currently playing in an acoustic rock duo and also enjoy playin
g solo acoustic gigs at small venues around town.

Our son was a student of Andy's for 5+ years and truly enjoyed his experience with Andy. Andy is a very patient and an inspiring instructor who really knows music and guitar well! Andy was always good about being available for our son during the week if he had questions about his homework or guitar lesson for the week! Andy always praised our son when needed and challenged him in a professional manner to increase his love of the instrument!

Andy started teaching Pranav at age 6. Pranav took lessons from Andy for over 8 years. Andy has a wonderful encouraging style. He knows when to be firm and when to be kind. We moved to China, otherwise we would still be there every Saturday :) when we return in the summer, Andy is always on our list of people to visit.

I’ve been playing guitar for 18 years. Ive been doing it for a living for 16 years. Acoustic, electric, rock, jazz, country, funk, lead, rhythm, flatpick, fingerpick...pick a style I’ve played it. My lesson plan will expand your knowledge of chords and scales, and how to use them. I’ll give you exercises to increase speed, dexterierity. You’ll learn music theory while learning your favorite songs, and learn how to apply your knowledge to make learning and writing new songs easier. You will learn something new every lesson, and see noticeable progress after the first couple of sessions.

About PJ
Hello! My name is PJ. I was born and raised in Central Florida, and I’ve spent the last 3 years in Central Iowa with my partner Libby, and our lovely and talented 4 year old daughter, Janie Rose.

I have been a professional musician for almost 20 years, four of which I spent playing trumpet, guitar, bass, and singing in the US Marine Corp Band. For the last decade, I have made my living as a multi-instrumentalist and singer, entertaining thousands on stages across the country and around the world. Currently, I am the Entertainment Director at Blue Moon Dueling Piano Bar in West Des Moines. Libby and I also have a private entertainment company called Epic Event Entertainment that provides live music for weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, etc.

Each lesson plan is customized to cater to each student’s individual needs and goals. Howe
ver some concepts apply to all students. Beginners will develop a solid foundation in basic musical concepts, including, but not limited to, how to read music, the circle of fifths, scales, chords, articulation, posture and breathing. Intermediate students will learn and employ advanced music theory concepts, modes, better sight reading, and improvisation.

Hi, my name is Gulli :)

I'm a 26 years old guitarist and composer from Iceland! I finished my Master's degree in guitar from Yale two months ago and just moved to Tempe with my partner this month.

Since 2014, I have worked as a private guitar teacher, providing guitar lessons to students of all ages and abilities. I specialize in teaching classical, acoustic, fingerstyle, and electric guitar but I am open to any style you want to focus on!

If you are new to guitar playing I will get you started with the correct technique! I get so many students who've had bad teachers that taught them incorrectly giving the students bad tension problems and awkward hands. It can be difficult to change those bad habits but with me you can be sure you will be going the right direction from the get go :)

I love all sort of music and am open to all styles! If you are interested in composing your own music I can give you compositional lessons to help make your songs even greater!

Sincerely, Gulli ...

With me you'll get a teacher who is patient, my curriculum will include: music theory, tab reading, solo building, etc. Let me help take you to the next level, thank you
