From sitting around the fire strumming chords to singer songwriter looking for a label the acoustic guitar can get you there and I can help you make that a successful journey.

Basic Chords, Rhythm Techniques, Intermediate Chords, Blues, Folk, Adult Contemporary, Country and Pop.

Artists like Jason Mraz, Green Day, Taylor Swift, the Eagles, Johnny Cash, the Who, Pink Floyd and more are great to play on the acoustic guitar. I have the techniques to get you those sounds.

I also teach songwriting, so if you aren't the type to play other people songs and want to write some of your own I have an extensive background to help get you on the road to accomplishing your goals.

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 teacher and takes the time to understand where you’re starting from and where you want to go. He is very patient and his studio has a relaxed atmosphere that is conducive to learning. Kyle is a great listener and there’s no pressure regardless of your skill level. No one could be more of a beginner than me and I feel like I’ve come a long way in a short amount of time. I would highly recommend him for both beginners and the more experienced alike.

I teach Acoustic Guitar all levels

About Keith
I specialize in teaching and performing Country, Blues, Rock n Roll, Folk, Bluegrass even a little Jazz. I love many musical styles. I teach both Electric and Acoustic guitar playing. And I'm now offering a huge list of different types of lessons. Please make sure to visit my "Subjects". That's is where you will really understand the skills that I've acquired over my long musical journey. So although guitar is my main instrument, As they say you can't take it with you when you go so I'm gladly passing the knowledge I've acquired to you.

Teaching is my passion. I do not teach for the money, although I do get paid, but what I charge is really reasonable by today's standard. I teach because I enjoy helping people learn how to play the guitar as well as other subjects. I have so much knowledge that I want to share that knowledge with oth
ers.

Because of my experience and educational background, I am able to help my students learn what they "need to know" in order to play the songs they want to play. Students will benefit from my unique teaching methods. I won't waste any time learning things that don't apply to your personalized objectives. You tell me what you want to be able to do and I will teach you what you need to know to get there. I have a easy going personality and a user friendly teaching style tailored to the students individual needs.

Here is some more information about my experience and educational background.

I've been a working musician almost my entire adult life. I'm performing around 60 gigs a year in three different bands. Each band I perform in is different and unique. I also perform from time to time as a soloist. When one dedicates their life to music the way that I have, it's not hard to find work. I have more work than I need. I love playing music so much that I now do it for the pure enjoyment. It's really difficult to do all the music I enjoy playing with just one band, that is why I play in three.

I’m am a student of the guitar as well as a teacher. You never stop learning. I'm also a Husband, Father, Son, and yes a grandfather.

Here is a little about my musical background. I started teaching guitar lessons to a few students in my home in 1978. Wow can’t believe it was that long ago. That led me to teaching private guitar lessons at two different music stores as well as guitar class for an adult continuing education program. After a run of 15 years and graduation with a Masters degree in Adult Learning and Development I became a serious student of the guitar studying around the country and in Canada. During this entire time I performed as a working musician in several bands. I am also a singer and songwriter. In 2017 my band Canyon Wind released our 3rd Album of all original music. I wrote or co-wrote all the songs.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach a student how to:
Read music and tablature
Form and play chords needed to play songs
Music Theory and ear training
Good Timing
Proper right and left hand technique
Both Lead and Rhythm techniques
Acoustic and Electric guitar
And I can help the experienced player break bad playing habits and advance to higher levels of playing.
I like to incorporate visual and audio aide as well as demonstration when I teach.
I use all or part of these teaching methods and more in order to enhance the learning experience. I always base my instruction on the needs, abilities and goals of the student..

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement studio w/ guitar, amps, keyboard, pa system, vocal microphones and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Country, Blues, Light Jazz, Classic Rock, Motown, Soul, Bluegrass. Acoustic and/or Electric guitar and Ukulele.

The Ukulele is a unique instrument and it's amazing how easy it is to play when you've developed great technique the way I have by playing the guitar. So if you're a guitar player and would like to branch out on the Ukulele I can show you how. Even if you don't play the guitar or have a desire to I can teach you Ukulele if you're a beginner. It's a fun instrument to play.
Right and left hand technique is so important. I spend a lot of time making sure you develop great technique. It's amazing how many guitar students come to me with bad technique. I can help you clean up your playing by developing proper technique.

I can teach people how to play both "Lead and Rhythm Guitar, Soloing, Chords, strumming patterns, chord progressions, and a little finger picking. I teach how to use a plectrum, which is also called a pick. I'm primarily a flat picker when playing lead guitar and I love strumming away at playing rhythm. Learning how to play lead guitar is fun but when you think about it 90% of most tunes is made up of playing rhythm. It's so important to learn how to be a great rhythm player. In a band they call it playing in the pocket. but if you are a soloist supporting your own singing or in a duo where you are accompanying a vocalist playing solid rhythm is a great skill to have under your fingertips.

If you write your own music I can teach you music theory. You want to learn how to write your own music. I can guide you and teach you how to develop song structure, hooks and great melody lines to your tunes.

On the guitar most guitar players play by ear but if you desire to learn how to read music I can show you. I coach both singing and playing as well as preparing for performance. Both on vocals and guitar. I have never had just a vocal student but I encourage students to sing while they play. So if that is there desire I can help. I'll show you how to play guitar scales you can use for vocal exercises. While studying voice at Baldwin Wallace I learned how to play the vocal exercises my teacher was showing me on guitar. I can pass this knowledge on to you.

If you play in a band, or desire to play as a duo or soloist. I have the experience to guide you along your path. There is an art playing with others that can't be overlooked. If that is the direction you want to take your in good hands with my guidance.

Some of my students just want to play in the comfort of their own home. Maybe only with their dog or their significant other listening. They find great joy in doing this and have no desire to ever really perform in public. And that is GREAT! When you break it down to the least common denominator, we do this for the love of music. I love music and the joy it brings to my life. You can experience the same joy that I have so why not let me help you? Let's face it.... is there really a better instrument to learn than the guitar? From my perspective there is not. And it's never too late to start.

I am 50 years old and have had quite a few guitar teachers through the years. Keith Parker by far is the best one I have ever had. His teaching methods are directly tailored to what I am interested in learning. He has never ending patients and at the same time his ability to motivate me far exceeds any teacher I have had in the past. I find taking guitar lessons very exciting. I would recommend him to any student looking for that “Perfect” teacher!

I've been playing and singing music professionally for about 25 years. As a family
man and father of two, I also I earn my living and support my family with music. I have a very student-driven teaching style, work with students of all ages, with focus on helping the student achieve his or her individual goals, small or large. I try to keep the lessons fun but focused at the same time.

I bring a balanced and personalized teaching style to my lessons, based on a well rounded education and wide range of real-world life experience. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts and have performance experience on many different fronts, from local rock cover bands to Top 40, from acoustic soloist to fronting a nationally touring Metallica tribute.

I come from a musical family - my father is also a pro musician. The biggest thing I've learned as a teacher of guitar, bass and voice is teaching the instrument has only made me a bigger student. The learning process never ends and that is one of the great things about music.

No matter where you are with the instrument - a beginner picking it up for the first time, or a seasoned pro of 10 years that just needs help "putting it together," I believe I can help you to get wherever you want to go.

Regarding availability - make sure to inquire if you don't see a time open that suits you - I am flexible. I perform 4-6 times a week and teach full time. Flex lessons tend to work very well.

After a combined 4 years of musical experience, my goal is simple: to genuinely teach you everything I know! I value every minute spent with every student. I believe guitar lessons shouldn't only be fun, but have the potential to be LIFE changing. Taking lessons with me will not only leave you a better guitar player, but my goal is to help my students fall in love with guitar the way I have! From playing simple chords to impressive riffs, I look forward to nothing else than helping you grow as a guitarist! I promise you won't be disappointed, and I'm excited to get started!

About Nick
I am currently a lead guitar and piano player for a collective artist band that plays for events, camps, and churches across the country. I am also completing online courses through Michigan State University to receive my certificate in Music Theory and Guitar Scales/Chord Progressions to teach to the best of my ability.

I don't teach how to read sheet music (this isn't to be confused with chord charts and guitar tabs, I often use them to teach). What I do know how to do is hear a song, and by listening to it know exactly what to do in order to find out how to play it without the help of technology. Learning to play by ear isn't as hard as it may sound! When you learn how to read music, you cannot play anything unless you have sheet music in front of you. I firmly believe the true joy in becoming a musician happens when you really begi
n to understand the instrument, and can express yourself through it. My life has been changed by music in the best way, and I find it incredible that I get the opportunity to help you learn what has made me who I am!

My interest in music styles is endless. Whether its jazz, blues, rock, country, etc., I respect all genres! And whichever genre you would be interested in learning, whether its one or all, I look forward to meeting you and growing alongside you!

Energetic, supportive & fun... my students will grow as players, musicians and songwriters. Learn new songs, skills, and/or how to play in a band. Together, we will advance you towards your goals.

"You are a great teacher and have helped me to grow in my skills as a musician and a person...I aspire to be a musician just like you.." HP, high school student in Elizabeth's guitar club

About Elizabeth
I love to teach. I have a few openings for students for whom I'm the right teacher. I say "yes" to your dreams of making music, acknowledge your passion and give you tools to improve your skills as a guitarist, songwriter, singer, basic keyboard theory and/or recording. We play in my studio in NYC or online.

I wrote and performed "Relative Pitch," a one-woman musical comedy at NY's Cherry Lane Theatre, Off Broadway, toured with the Broadway cast of "Beatlemania." My songs have been heard on tv and in film. I've just composed a musical and am working on a ballet(!).

Whether she's enticing you with come-hither invitations or giving a dead
beat beau the boot, Elizabeth shows her depth and versatility as a wicked-smart contemporary singer/songwriter in Sleep Naked.

Elizabeth is a facile cross-genre writer, delivering an alluring, gospel-tinged lullaby in the album's title track, "Sleep Naked," while exhibiting her pluck in the strutting and self-assured send-off songs "I'm Too Beau'ful (for you)" and "One Last Look." Her talents even cover Western Swing with "Back Seat Driver," a good-time road trip replete with rapid-fire wordplay. Through it all, Elizabeth puts forth compelling turns of phrase and agile moments of melody, both as composer and singer.

Even when she's meting out stinging barbs, Elizabeth keeps her good humor, as evidenced by "Enlightenment" (with its erudite imputations) and "Oil" (an indictment of the fossil-fuel industry). But she turns on an emotional dime to render a heartfelt plea in the sultry, loping "Baby Please Come On Home" and serves up a haunting, evocative reverie in "Ferris Wheel."

As if singing, writing, and leading the band weren't enough, Elizabeth lays down some serious guitarwork on Sleep Naked. On acoustic, she is equally deft comping jazz-chord passages ("Enlightenment") as she is fingerpicking Piedmont-style blues ("Leave Me Alone"). When she dons an electric, Elizabeth coaxes slinky, lyrical lines from her Tele for "Sleep Naked" and punctuates the simple acoustic-bass texture of "Baby Please Come On Home" with tasty slide fills.

Working with Elizabeth is always so helpful. I get to spend time with great company and learn so much about my curiosities. Elizabeth challenges students in the right way and ultimately is a teacher that is there to help students grow, changing what they can do and their belief in what they can play.

An teacher that truly cares.

I’ve been giving guitar and music theory lessons for four years now, and I’ve taught a variety of ages. Whether it’s rock and roll, country, or alternative, I promise you’ll be playing your favorite song after a few lessons! Every student receives lessons that are tailored to their interests. My job is to help you reach your goals in a fun and personalized way while also teaching you the fundamentals of music.

About Daniel
Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for nine years now and teaching for a little over four years. For the past six years, I’ve been the lead electric guitarist in my church’s band. I’ve also been involved in multiple nationally ranked choirs and performed at Carnegie Hall in 2016. I’m also the lead guitarist in a singer-songwriter trio called Two Beards and a Boy. We’ve played at city events, fundraisers, and restaurants in the DFW area.

My love for music has played a huge role in my life, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Nothing beats the excitement of a student as they’re able to play their first song. Whether you are wanting to learn how to perform, compose music, or play your favorite song, I promise to help you achieve your goal.

I’ve taught a variety of ages, and I truly believe it's never too early or late to l
earn an instrument. I make sure to structure each student’s lessons to fit their goals and needs. I ensure to focus solely on what the student is wanting to learn. All of my lessons are designed to be fun and educational, and the student is in complete control. I have been working with children and youth for many years through the Upward Sports program, and I love building connections with all of my students to create a comfortable and fun learning environment.

As a college student at UT, I am very flexible with scheduling, so feel free to contact me about available times for lessons. I hope to hear from you soon, and please let me know if you have any questions!

Daniel is an excellent teacher. He gave my 13 year old son lessons. He kept him engaged. Was able to keep him focused. With the ability to progress. If not for Daniel moving off to college I would still be using him to give lessons to my son.
