Joel's music theory lessons are superb!

My first lesson went really well. I wanted to learn music theory as well as learn how to play.
Very knowledgeable and teaches in a way that is easy to understand.
I walked away from the first lesson with more than one 'ah-ha' moment and am excited to learn more.

Online Guitar Teacher

I want students to excel the fastest they can on guitar. Though I know it is important to let students learn at their own pace, I will never cease to challenge them through difficult pieces or exercises. I will develop plans and keep track of progress so that students and I can stay organized and ensure the learning is fluent. I will direct lessons based on what the student wants to learn most and what genres of music they are interested in. I also change the structure of lessons based on how the student learns. The basics I want students to learn from my lessons are basic chords, fretboard knowledge and music theory, finger-picking styles, pick and strumming techniques, left-hand techniques, and most importantly I want to teach students how to listen. I will train students ears through ear training exercises and songs. I firmly believe the better the student’s ears can get, the better the musician they can be. Besides just teaching songs, I want students to understand the theory, ...

My son and husband are taking lessons from William. I am so pleased that we have found a true musician., they seem to learn a lot in a few short lessons. My son starts to teach me guitar. His method makes the lesson easy for me to learn. His enthusiasm makes learning fun and 20 minutes lesson tolerable. I start to like my son more! William has changed my boy after only 2 lessons!

William is my first guitar teacher. As daunting as it can be to learn an instrument, he created a comfortable experience for me. He's incredibly talented and his love for music truly shows (which is inspiring). I initially started with the desire to learn jazz and William opened my eyes to explore other genres that integrate with jazz. Im excited to continue to learn and grow with music. I highly recommend anyone at any level to take lessons with William.

Thank you, William!

Still getting the hang of online lessons and don’t have much to compare it to but my son seems to enjoy it almost as much as live lessons.

Online Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching high level guitar,vocals and bass for the last 20 years,and as a result of my extensive teaching experience, I know what works for people and what doesn't. I know how to get the results that help people grow as the musician they want to be as quickly as possible. My name Paul Campo and I grew up in the Boston area where at the time the public high school system offered high level music theory classes. I took advantage and had an understanding of high level music theory by the time I was 17 years old. At 17yrs old I started studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston, but after a year I moved to L.A to pursue a music opportunity I was offered. I've been playing guitar and singing in bands for 40 years and teaching full time for the last 20yrs on the West Coast from L.A to Seattle. I see alot of the insights to the musicianship of classic American music fading away and getting lost in oblivion, so I try to teach what I've learned over the years, while helping ...

Paul is a great guitar teacher ! Awesome blues rhythm. Electric , acoustic . You name it! Learn chords scales and theory. Learn songs you want to play without being overwhelmed by over complicated information overload. I really appreciate Paul’s approach to teaching guitar and both myself and my son will continue training with him. Thank you Paul! 👍
Glen
I’ve worked with Paul C. for several years with great success... Paul was masterful in transitioning me from Blues, to Country, and even even did a bit of Jazz.
Are you Looking for a dedicated Musican, one who loves the craft, will instill that passion into you, then I’d recommend Paul.. the raw skills Paul taught me, reading music, playing scales, learning songs, and stepping out of the closet and playing live has been awesomely executed.. Paul is family now.. I’d recommend him absolutely... give him a try, I think you’ll enjoy music more than ever at the hands of Paul..
Michelle
Paul has been amazing for my son. He is very patient and engaging. He always comes prepared and follows through with what he teaches. He comes up with new ideas and finds ways that help with how your child learns best. My son is leaps and bounds better since we switched to Paul !

The Surprising Benefit of Learning Guitar Without Sheet Music

We've talked about how to read chords and tabs before on the blog -- but what about a new approach of learning guitar without sheet music at all? Here, Austin, TX teacher Samuel B. explains his teaching technique...   During my college years, I was given a brief introduction to instructional methods common to Japan. Specifically, I was told that playing the shamisen or the koto (two native stringed instruments) is a skill learned by way of the student facing the teacher and playing w …
