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!

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.
YP
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."

My first lesson with Mat and he was very professional, friendly, informative, and patient. I'm looking forward to our next lesson

Mathew is wonderful! My son loved his first lesson!
Shawn
Mathew has made learning fun and stress free for my son. Without Mat's patience and support I do not believe my son would be taking lessons for more than a couple of months much less a year later. My son looks forward to lessons, he trusts Mat, and considers Mat a friend. I can not praise Mat enough for all his contributions to my son's new skill and his part in the building of my son's self esteem!

Strum, solo, compose, sing and back yourself up. What can't you do with a guitar? We'll learn the tunes you want to learn along with the theory behind them. I might back you up on bass, guitar, or piano. We'll get right to playing music as fast as possible.

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?

Great teacher

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

My speciality is helping young children learn the basics of this instrument! To see them strum their first E chord is fantastic :). I do suggest a half-size guitar for students nine and younger.

Would not recommend. Has some knowledge but a really bad character and will put you down as a person. If you aren’t a favorite, you’re ranked least important and more likely to be put down. A really bad experience and person.
JJ
Miriam is an excellent musician, mentor, and person! She knows her craft extremely well and knows how to coach someone by offering critical feedback and encouragement. Miriam is the kindest and most compassionate person that you will ever meet. Taking vocal lessons with Miriam will make you a better singer and a better person. Thanks, Miriam!
Ethan
Miriam is by far the best singing instructor that I have ever had. She works with you so well to make sure that you find some sort of growth in your singing ability every time you meet with her. Totally Incredible!!

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hey there!

I am a double-platinum award winning music-producer, songwriter, artist and musician from Germany.

I started playing the guitar when I was 12 years old and since then I was able to gain a lot of experiences on stage, in the studio and as a teacher!
I played in a band for many years, I write my own songs and I produce bands and solo artists.

In 2015 I’ve graduated from the well known ArtEZ University of Music in the Netherlands with a Bachelors of Music degree.
During my studies I’ve covered a lot of subjects e.g.: music theory, music history, music production, music management and also „how to teach music“!

After my studies I’ve worked for several years as a music-producer and achieved a double-platinum award for my work.

As you can see, I’ve got a lot of different qualities and I would love to share my knowledge with you!
Moreover I’m experienced in online-teaching and I have worked with several age groups already!

The most important thing is that I ...

Sergej is a versatile guitar teacher and he helped me to reach the next level within a couple of months! Thanks Sergej! I'm looking forward to see you next week! :)
Evgenij
Sergej is a great and experienced guitar teacher! I like his holistic approach and would definitely recommend him! I am enjoying his lessons since a couple of months and I'm glad that he's teaching me.
Jasmin
Sergej is an awesome guitar teacher! I chose Sergej as my teacher as he is very experienced on different levels. From the first lesson on I knew that he had a clear picture in mind with a lesson plan tailored to my needs and profile. His lessons are highly structured, with a fun finger warm up, listening activities (through him, I learnt how important those are for my personal development and goals) and plenty of time to work on songs that I always wanted to play! His approach is holistic and the feedback I get is always super constructive; plus he has lots of tips on hand that help reaching my goals faster! I have taken lessons at schools before but none of them was as good as the experience with Sergej! Not to forget: Sergej's has such a friendly and calm personality - I would highly recommend him as a teacher!

"I am a long time student having first started guitar lessons in my late thirties. Thanks to Paul’s patience and expertise, I quickly evolved as a guitar player and all around musician. He has a great studio with a full variety of instruments so it's very convenient to not have to bring one's own instrument if one prefers not to. The studio also has a quality recording system , and I've created numerous professional sounding recordings of my guitar playing as well. Today I enjoy playing bass and guitar in a string band and continue to expand my musical horizons with Paul. I think he is an excellent instructor and I highly recommend him for beginners or intermediate musicians of all ages."

He's patient, he will go at your speed, he listens, and I believe he has the "chops" to help me get better. Also, he's been SUPER flexible which is a big deal to me. Kudos to Grant...I look forward to meeting him in person at some point as well. - Chuck Kuglen (San Diego, San Francisco, Jackson Hole)."

I highly recommend her as she was super nice and very kind to come get me at the bottom of the hill, so I can find her studio in the future.

"Greg has been an incredible teacher and mentor to me over the years. He’s pushed me to get out of my comfort zone and be successful in every musical area I chose to pursue. Greg made valuable acoustic guitar and vocal lessons enjoyable and rewarding. I’ve seen him build up teams of inexperienced people to become well rounded and proficient musicians. Top instructor recommendation for pursing a musical passion.

You can use it wherever needed. Let me know if you need anything else or any adjustments."
