Private Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching guitar to students of all ages for over 10 years. Guitar is such a popular instrument and there are so many options available to learn, so I try to be very dialed in to my students' personalities and goals to make sure that they are feeling empowered learning, not intimidated or bored. A good guitar teacher is far more valuable than a YouTube lesson because a teacher can give you specific feedback on common mistakes: fingering, hand/arm mechanics, tone, time/rhythm and more; All of which make the difference between being ready to play in your bedroom versus playing in a room with other people!

In addition to learning all the classic guitar songs and riffs, I tend to focus on fundamentals: building a strong foundation of tempo, rhythm, and basic reading/theory skills. This foundation serves two purposes: It greatly increases the student's ability to learn new material (as opposed to 3 months for one song, then starting over on another song) and it gives the ...

"Shon amazed me with his ability to understand not only music and how it works, and though he prefers the Bass Guitar, he could play things that boggled my mind at the onset. I highly recommend him for any type of music lessons. I most likely be personally recommending him to my friends who are involved in music as well. No matter how accomplished we are there is still more to learn, I don't know of anyone I would rather learn it from than Shon."
