Blues isn't an area of focus of mine, but I know how to sit in with a good blues band. If you're looking to get started on the Blues, then I can get you headed in the right direction. Blues is a few simple techniques played with a particular attitude and with a knowledge of how to use a specific set of scales and chords.

About Joel
There are some restrictions based on the maturity of the child and the goals of the lessons. Kids under 13-14 years of age are not very focused on practicing or conceptual musical ideas. If we are just teaching and reinforcing basic things and exposing the child to music, it's a great time to teach them. Otherwise I could be wasting your money.

About Phil
With over 15 years experience teaching guitar lessons full time and performing internationally, I have enjoyed working with students ranging from beginner to advanced in all styles whether it be Jazz, Rock , Heavy Metal, Folk, Blues and everything in between. It is my goal as a teacher to evaluate your existing level and work to inspire you and to help achieve your goals. Whether you want to study Jazz Improvisation, Van Halen, James Taylor, or Guns and Roses, I believe all styles are interconnected and your technique, theory, ear-training, and musicianship can be developed through any style that interests you. Above all else, learning how to play the guitar should be FUN and INSPIRING! So, contact me on take lessons and lets get started!

Resume is available upon request.

Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you soon.
Sincer
ely,
Phil S.

Some press:

Phil's compositions showcase a variety of ideas and are quite effective at setting up the soloists to explore the various permutations suggested by his tunes. His compositional originality is matched by his incisive playing which ranges from "inside" lyricism to hard edged, riff based, screaming rock and satisfying surreal textures aided by his intelligent use of electronics."
- David Kane, Cadence Music

"With demonstrative technique, Phil is cognizant of the tradition but thinks outside of the box."
-Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz

Although I'm not technically a student of Phil's, I learn a lot from him every time I play and teach with him. We perform regularly at Berklee, where I'm a professor, and we give concerts and masterclasses all over the Northeast together (most recent was at Cornell). Phil's a warmhearted, patient, brilliant teacher and an outstanding and creative musician, seamlessly putting together everything he knows--jazz, shredding, classical--there's no boundaries for him! He's great at explaining things, and he never belittles a question, no matter how dumb you might have thought it was. Phil's a great friend and a great teacher. -John Funkhouser, Berklee College of Music, Boston

In addition to being the most talented guitarist and musician I have ever had the opportunity to play with, Phil is an astoundingly good teacher. I've played guitar for 8 years and taken private lessons the entire time. Phil has been my teacher for the past 2 years and in that time I have progressed as a musician more than I could have ever imagined. Phil has been the biggest factor in my decision to major in music, due to his unrivaled musical talent, his kind, unassuming, (and funny) demeanor and his seemingly limitless knowledge of the fretboard. He is well versed in so many genres of music, and has such an effortless grasp on improvisation. Any guitarist, from immediate beginners to seasoned professionals, can learn so much from Phil. Need I say more?

It’s always a very special time a guitar student wants to learn about the blues. As an improviser, this is one of my favorite topics to teach.
We will listen to the great blues guitarists, discussing their individual sound and technique. Lots of time will be spent learning scales and basic harmonic principles. Most importantly though, we will jam! It’s not easy at first, but I promise to keep the vibe easy-going and positive.

About David
My name is David and I'm a professional musician who just moved to North Austin. I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend. I have been teaching for over fifteen years, and I'm looking to get a few new students.
I teach guitar, piano, bass guitar and even upright bass. If it's a tutor you are looking for I can also teach music theory and appreciation. I have a knack for teaching young people, probably because I was young when I started my musical journey. I've been very successful at inspiring a student's love of music and instilling the patience required to take on the challenge of playing an instrument.
The first thing I like to do is get to know you, the music you enjoy and your goals. In a way, I l
ike to begin by letting the student lead.
In addition to learning from you, I intend to present you with new information, to try and broaden your musical tastes and teach you how to be an active listener.

I can teach a wide variety of styles on the guitar. Once the basic skills and technique behind the guitar are learned, we would be ready to master the blues scales and use them to improvise solos over blues progressions.

About Dustin
I hold music degrees from both Belmont and McKendree University. I've been playing guitar since I was 12 and violin since I was 18. I've been teaching private lessons when I graduated high school and loved it. I decided to make teaching my career, I currently teach at Spring Woods Middle School teaching orchestra.

Touring guitarist, experienced composer for film/media, and professional music instructor for the past 8 years! I graduated Magna Cum Laude from McNally Smith College of Music with two bachelor's degrees; Guitar Performance and Instrumental Composition. I have taught students of literally all ages (4-76) and most specialize in guitar, music theory, and composition. I also teach beginner to intermediate piano lessons! My greatest strong suit as a teacher is my incredible flexibility in adapting to the student's learning style. Originally a self-taught guitarist, I know the struggles of learning or continuing to better oneself on an instrument. I guarantee you that I will work hard and patiently with you to help you reach your musical goals!

About Ethan
Hello and thank you for checking out my profile! My name is Ethan E. and I'm 22 years old. Originally raised in the northwestern tip of Minnesota, I moved to St. Paul to pursue a degree(s) in music after receiving a scholarship to McNally Smith College of Music. I am an active performer in the Twin cities area playing freelance and with the Adam Meckler Orchestra and Mariah Mercedes band. I'm comfortable playing a wide range of styles, but play mostly contemporary Jazz, Fusion, Classical, and Rock/Blues. I work closely with Grammy-nominated producer/arranger Andy Thompson (Taylor Swift/Jeremy Messersmith) and composer/arranger Adi Yeshaya (The Voice, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston). My ultimate love is composing music for orchestra and jazz ensemble. Composers and guitarists that have influenced me the most are Allan Holdsworth
, Pat Metheny, Sergei Rachmaninoff, John Williams, Randy Rhoads, and Adrien Moignard. Please let me share my knowledge and passion for music with you today!

I have extensive experience teaching and playing across many styles including jazz, classical, R&B, funk, rock, folk, improvised music, and more. I approach each student as an individual with their own goals, needs, experience level, and learning style to create a specialized curriculum that helps propel the student towards their best self and enjoy the process at the same time.

About Drew
Aside from an extensive amount of personal and teaching experience in all of these subjects, I genuinely love connecting with students through music to help them reach their personal goals. I believe that my approach towards learning music is deeply rewarding, engaging, and aids brain development. Below is my bio which details my approach and teaching experience.

Drew received his Bachelors of Music in Jazz and Improvisational Music from the University of Nevada Reno and his Masters of Music in Contemporary Improvisation from New England Conservatory. He teaches guitar, piano, songwriting, and composition with an emphasis on intuitive learning, ear training, and music theory. His background includes jazz, classical, rock, blues, reggae, R&B, hip-hop, electronic music, and improvised music. As an educator he has eight years of experien
ce in private studio and has given workshops at the middle school, high school, and college level including his recent outreach work with the Boston Philharmonic to underfunded schools. Drew approaches each student as an individual with their own goals, needs, experience level, and learning style to create a specialized curriculum that helps propel the student towards their best self and enjoy the process at the same time.

Was strictly interested in playing classical, nylon string guitar, and was a little nervous because Drew is very proficient and accomplished in Jazz and Improvisational guitar, which is a little outside of my interests.

Drew does a fantastic job at teaching classical guitar, and at the same time introduced me to the more modern world of improvisation guitar, which I now enjoy a lot more than before.

I'd highly recommend Drew if someone is interested in a well rounded musical education that goes beyond just playing an instrument. I not only learned a lot of guitar, but feel I'm an all around better musician after taking lessons with Drew

I am passionate about seeing students grow. I strive to be energetic yet patient when teaching to create a comfortable dynamic in my lessons that encourages excitement about music.
I have been playing guitar for 9 years, and have performed professionally with groups playing styles ranging from jazz, country, rock, blues, funk, and even musical theatre. I am capable of teaching beginners as well as intermediate students.
My lessons encourage a strong knowledge of fundamentals, so that a student can continue to develop years down the road with their acquired understanding of music, but I also am also careful to tailor lesson material according to a student's interests, personality, and natural learning methods.

About Chris
I love the guitar, and so getting to teach students how to play something that is so dear to me is an absolute joy. I have been playing for 9 years and only keep getting more interested i the instrument. I love playing everything from jazz to country, to finger-style, to blues and used to even dabble in some metal. My professional performance experience includes solo guitar gigs, rock band shows, musical theatre pit work, dance band playing, and gigs along the east coast with rising country acts.
I will graduate from Belmont University in the Spring of 2018 with a degree in Commercial Music, so I have had the "conservatory training" in regards to theory, music history, and studying the guitar, but before college I was largely a self taught player and am now a professionally performing musician here in Nashville. That being said, I can
teach all of the "correct" notions of music from my academic background, but I also have real experience regarding what a musician needs to be able to do if they want to become a professional.
I do my best to make lessons relaxed. I don't ever want a student to be nervous for a lesson with me because they did not practice as much as they think they should. While I encourage as much practice as possible, I care more about a student realizing the positive force that music can be in their lives; music doesn't need to be a stressor.

About David
My name is David, and I'm a guitar and bass instructor. I've been teaching guitar for about seven years, and I have experience teaching all ages and experience levels.

As well as being a teacher, I have experience performing in rock bands all over Atlanta since 2010. My experiences as a performer have made me both a better guitar player and a better teacher.

I'm a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, with a BPS in Interdisciplinary Music Studies (3.5 GPA). During my time at Berklee I learned a plethora of techniques and practices to help you be the best guitar player you can be.

If you are a more advanced player and are looking to speed up your playing, look no further. Over the years, I've developed a number of tricks and techniques to take your soloing and shredding to the next level.

My lessons are fun, engaging, and
effective. My lesson plans are specifically catered to each student whether you've never played a note in your life, you want to learn theory and songwriting, or if you're determined to be the best and fastest guitar player you can be. I specialize in rock, pop, punk, heavy metal, blues, and jazz.

When it comes to teaching, I place importance on the fundamentals of playing and writing while encouraging each student's personal musical interests. Learning to read and write music with an understanding of theory are important skills to gain when studying an instrument. After developing that foundation, I like to show my students how to push beyond the traditional rules of theory and writing through experimentation.

About Dominic
I started studying music in the fourth grade when I played clarinet in the school band. A couple years later, I began playing guitar and developing my musical identity by teaching myself to play songs by Nirvana, The Beatles, Green Day, and Hendrix. In high school, I took part in the yearly Rock 'n' Roll Revival show and played with various bands. While attending Salisbury University and Berklee College of music, I focused on music theory, composition, songwriting, and private studio teaching.

For several years, I wrote and recorded with Deleted Scenes, a D.C. based band. We toured extensively across the continental U.S. and through Canada.
