Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Experienced guitar teacher available for eager beginning students of all ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of musical skills. I taught myself to play guitar in high school, so just know the basics. I played keyboards, my main instrument, in several rock bands, so know some blues and rock riffs that could transfer well to guitar. I enjoy helping people to find the fun in playing guitar!

About Karen

I was a National Merit Semifinalist in High School for good SAT scores, and in the Honors Society in High School and College. I play piano, percussion, flute, cello, guitar

Karen is a patient instructor. Has a relaxed home atmosphere. Made good use of the lesson time. Had appropriate practice outlined between lessons. I would recommend her.

My daughter 7yrs took lessons from Karen for 8 months. She was so patient and kind. My girl loved her and her teaching style.
I would have given 5 stars if she had got a real piano, not an electronic one.

Karen is not only a gifted teacher but an excellent listener and has an extremely easy going personality. This was my third lesson and I already "feel the love."

Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Perfect. He matched his lesson beautifully with the music I like and how I am likely to learn quickly. Could not ask for better.

I wanted to learn some Black Sabbath songs for my dad’s birthday and Peter was extremely helpful instructing me to do so. He was extremely patient with me and my lack of rhythm.

Super positive experience. I’m not the most dexterous person in the world, and peter is super patient and clear in his instruction. 10/10

Peter is hands down the best teacher ever! I had such a hard time learning the basics of acoustic, but he taught me so many tricks and made the learning process smooth. I feel like a pro now! Will be continuing learning from him!

"Jordan is really very good teacher. I just started to learn guitar, I feel lucky that my husband selected Jordan.He achieves the target(lessons) in short timeline. He is kind and friendly with loads of patience. He teaches whatever I like along with regular lessons. I am basically from India, so even when I ask music for languages other than English, he does without any sort of hesitation. If you search for new guitar teacher, I am 100% sure that Jordan will be the best choice. Both "in home" and "in studio" you will definitely feel comfortable to work with him. You will have full freedom to learn what you really want."

Their time together hasn't skipped a beat since we switched from in-home to online lessons. Andrew can pretty much do anything and play any song my son requests to learn. He keeps him on track to progress through lessons and also finds time to just jam with him for fun. Andrew is the best!"
