From finger picking to tapped harmonics, I'll give you the tools to build a strong foundation and explain creative techniques to help you stand out of the crowd!

About Michael
Expressing yourself is the ultimate goal of music and my job is to help you get your point across!

Like any musician, music is my life.
I love to soak it in any way I can! Whether it be listening to records, jamming with my friends or watching all the live concert footage of Stevie Ray Vaughan I can get my hands on.

I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor’s of Art in Music with a concentration on guitar performance. Throughout my undergraduate studies I performed in various ensembles within the college’s curriculum. Currently, my solo project gives me the opportunity to continue to grow through writing and performing my own original pieces. Throughout my career I have had the honor of performing with renowned songwriters Todd Rundgren and Charlie Sexton as well as being mentored by jazz drummer Frank Donaldson of
The Ramsey Lewis Quartet.

*** Lesson Details ***

Studying at the college level taught me a lot about what not to do as a teacher. The material is already difficult enough, so why would I be difficult with you?

I strive to be more of a mentor and friend rather than taskmaster. However, I do require structure and commitment to getting better. My curriculum will revolve around you and your needs with added material that I feel will help you succeed.

A typical lesson plan includes:

 physical technique

 chord and scale knowledge,

 soloing concepts

 and tying all of these ideas together by learning a song in a genre you love!

All of these concepts culminate in the discovery of your own personal voice!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My teaching studio is just steps away from the Belmont Blue Line stop! Our lessons will be held in a private practice space in my home. The large room has multiple amps and guitars, so there is no need to bring an instrument for lessons if you don't want to! (But, you do need an instrument to practice with outside of our lessons!)

Students will learn the anatomy of the guitar, strumming and picking patterns, chords, scales, theory, and how to read notation, tab, and lead sheets.

About Tracy
I have been playing the drum set in various bands since 2001. I have also been playing with the OKC Community Orchestra since 2009. I have played in symphonic and jazz bands and a percussion ensemble. I have taught a percussion class, private lessons, and I have been a full time music teacher in the OKC district. I have recorded in the studio also, and I enjoy doing a bit of my own production. Rocking on stage is my favorite activity! I can teach you how to be an integral part of a band and play along to your favorites. I enjoy bringing out the best in a student and teaching to his/her strengths. Let's run!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very easygoing and patient teacher. I fully understand that the drum set requires a high level of coordination, and I am mindful of this while working with students. I will begin with proper gr
ip and stroke technique as well as the use of a metronome. I will teach the student to read rhythms and drum set notation. I know how to isolate difficult patterns, break them down into understandable parts, and reintegrate them into a piece. I like to use the music that a student enjoys to relate to the written music. I have found YouTube to be an indispensable tool for this, and my students have responded very well. I will work on snare drum technique as well, because it is the primary voice on the set, and the touch and nuance required to play it well relate to the set as well. I will tailor my instruction to suit the student's learning style and preferences. I want to make the learning fun, so I will help the student quickly gain the basic skills to play along with their favorite bands. This promotes musicality as well as solid time. It will also aid in transcription, which will come with development and is a valuable tool. I will use this in tandem with technique-building exercises to form a well rounded musician. I believe that a student should have a familiarity with his/her instrument, so we will also go over the anatomy and tuning of the set. Above all, music should be fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ drum set, hand drums, and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a practice pad, snare drum, and sticks. If a student wishes to have drum set lessons in his/her home, that instrument should be there.
**Please note** I do have a drum set in my home.

*** Specialties ***
For the drum set, I am the most experienced in rock, country, and bluegrass styles. I am comfortable with both Stevens and Burton grips for mallet instruments.

I was only an amateur when Noah began teaching me, and I made more improvement in my first month of lessons with him than I had in the last year. He's extremely knowledgeable and makes playing the guitar seem easy. He always gives 110% and wants to help you learn and improve. 12/10 would recommend.

Noah taught my son for 2 years before moving out of the area. He was always extremely patient with his students. He taught my son the RIGHT tools that beginners need to know. He didn’t just teach him rock song after rock song. Rather, he explored different scales, different genres, and beginning steps into improvisation. As a college music professor myself, I can absolutely say that Noah excels in any academia arena. Not only does he teach well, he’s a monster player.

About Garrett M.

Holly Springs, NC

I can play any number of styles from blues and country to hard rock and heavy metal I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now. I know music theory very well and I'm great with making the theory part fun to learn while teaching to play a style that the student prefers. I'm an easy going guy and really patient. I make the promise to every student that I will give them every bit of effort and support I can to propel them in their music career. I'm one of those people who gets along with everybody and I like to make my lessons fun for each student.

About Garrett
I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now and I've played in just about every type of band. After playing in a metal band for about 5 years I switched over to a classic rock group for a couple years. In both of those groups I was lead guitar/lead vocals. Now for the last few years I've been playing lead guitar in a country/rock band called Faith Bardill for a vocalist who has won several awards including best female country artist and best teen artist. I enjoy playing any style of music and I'm very excited to help new students realize their potential. I'm prepared to teach from home in a comfortable room I've dedicated to teaching and studio work. I'm also happy to go to the student for their convenience or give lessons online. My personal passion is to make music my life. I want to give lessons, play shows and record my
way through the years. I have enormous enthusiasm when it comes to music and I bring that to the lessons I give.

What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!

About Rod R.

Close
Boca Raton, FL

View Full Profile

I am currently a working musician in a popular local band from Miami.

This has given me the opportunity to work with some amazing musicians, Grammy award winning producers, large music festivals with artists from all over the country and have learned the joys and perils from life on the road.

In addition to that, I was the Music Director at School of Rock and taught, guitar, bass, drums and vocals to many students there.

So in addition to teaching you how to play like a monster, I'm also going to teach you practical things, such as basic care of your instrument and how to approach live performances.

About Rod
I perform in the band Xotic Yeyo as the bass player. We are a popular band in Florida and perform all over the state. We have released an EP and Album, and depending on when you are reading this, we are either about to, or have just released our latest single. All of this can be found on spotify and all other streaming services.

I also served as the Musical Director at School of Rock Boca Raton and shepherded the school through it's opening. I taught guitar, bass, drums and vocals to many of the school's current top students and also hired many of the instructors currently serving at School of Rock. I also led several band classes, where I molded a group of students into a band and readied them for live performances.

I am also an experienced sound engineer and producer, having several songwriting credits in T-Pain's stable of artists. C
urrently I own a recording studio in Boca Raton where I occasionally will record projects that really excite me.

In addition to that, I run a concert promotion company, where I organize live events and one-day music festivals throughout the Florida Treasure Coast.

My knowledge of music is very hands on, I know how to fully service any of the instruments I own and also much of the production gear. I know the nuances of different instruments and how that can affect the sound one might be looking for.

With me as your teacher, you will not only know the how, you will also know the why.

Rod got me from zero experience playing guitar to soloing in 6 months! I was so amazed and didn't think it was possible. He did make me practice a lot, but he was right, it made a huge difference.

If you're a beginner, I cannot recommend a better instructor.

My lesson plan includes understanding and being able to play chords, scales, etc. as well as having an understanding of basic music theory in order for the student to be able to analyze the music they want to play and learn it more quickly and efficiently. I have around 7 years of experience and have played with multiple small groups in the OKC area.

About Danny
I began taking my own piano lessons when I was around 8 years old and kept them up for about 8 years. Around the time I stopped, I began taking guitar lessons, which I kept up for around 5 years. Since putting down the lessons I’ve continued to play music with multiple acquaintances as well as taken 2 semesters for piano performance at the University of Central Oklahoma. I also work a part-time job at UPS on the side.
