Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

Online Electric Guitar Teacher

Hello and welcome! I started teaching guitar lessons after school in 6th grade to fellow students and our teachers alike. From the very beginning, my ethos has been centered around striving to serve the individual and helping them to achieve their goals. I've only become more passionate about that over the course of almost 20 years of teaching and I look forward to working with you!

I have been a touring and studio musician as well as a musical director and record producer for over ten years on electric and acoustic guitar, pedal steel, bass guitar and singing. I'm passionate about teaching YOU, not just teaching notes or chords or licks. Everyone learns differently and I look forward to creating for you what all of my amazing teachers have created for me over 25 years of learning: a safe space to let your guard down, be who you are and work your hardest to be your best.

About Ryan

Hello! I have been a studio and touring musician for over a decade. Currently, I play guitar and pedal steel as well as background vocals for Amos Lee, Heather Maloney, Seth Glier and many more. I love to teach and share what I've learned with over 3,000 shows under my belt as well as hundreds of r

I have been teaching electric guitar for the last 5 years. I can help you learn more about open/bar chords, finger picking, palm muting, scales, power chords, tone shaping and soloing/improvisation. We can also work on learning your favorite tunes and maybe writing of some of your own! I am here to help you achieve your goals as a guitar player. We'll start with what you are currently interested in learning and expand outwards from there. Feel free to message me and we'll take it from there!

About Joseph

I am Joe L. from Lebanon, New Hampshire. I started playing guitar at age 11. Over the years I explored many different styles such as rock, blues, metal and classical.

Taught me some cool new blues picking. This guy knows his shit!
Matt
Joe is a great guy and musician, a really easy person to work with, talk to, and hang with. Most importantly he is an extraordinary musician, he knows his stuff, and he knows how to communicate it to a student. His knowledge spans far beyond a pro and his teaching skills surpass many "professional" teachers I have worked with in the past. Nothing but a joy every lesson. Joe has opened my eyes to what the fretboard displays harmonically. I am grateful for what he has given me. Thanks Joe!
Malik
I'm currently taking electric guitar lessons from Joe. Without a doubt, it is the highlight of my week to spend an hour jamming with him. While learning a new instrument is always difficult (especially one as physically/mentally demanding as the guitar), Joe is endlessly knowledgeable and always has a cool new trick to show me to make everything less daunting and more fun. It has been such a joy to be instructed by someone so funny, talented, patient, and kind. I cannot recommend Joe enough!
