I've been teaching guitar for almost ten years and work hard with each student to establish and meet their own goals. I'm focused on helping you become the player you want to be. Rather than applying a generic curriculum, I create my own lessons based on what each student likes and wants to learn. We can focus on a specific style or technique, or even a singular artist; whatever is required to help you become the player you want to be.
Dan is a teacher and guitarist from Kansas City, KS. As a teenager he studied blues and jazz with former B.B. King sideman Dwight Foster. This background aided him when he took classes in jazz improvisation and music composition at the University of Kansas.

Beginner guitar instruction for all ages. Topics covered include: |
B I O G R A P H Y I was born and raised in London England, where I first discovered my love of music. Growing up I studied classical piano for 10 years, and was educated through the Royal Associated Board and Trinity College. Moving to the states, I carried my musical passion and took further instruction in voice, guitar, saxophone, and violin. I graduated in 2011 from a pioneering local music school and have maintained a home teaching studio for several years. I have experience working with students from all ages and musical backgrounds, primarily working on improvisation, theory and composition. D E T A I L S Charlie believes that learning an instrument should primarily be an exciting and gratifying endeavor, although this does not negate the fact that diligent practice ...
I started playing guitar after I realized that the trumpet (my first instrument), besides only being able to play one note at a time, was just not as sexy & cool as the “six stringed siren of the 60's & 70's”. After 2 years of playing I started teaching guitar in a local Toledo OH area music store on the day of my 16th birthday, and soon expanded to students spread over two stores and and my home. My first "road gig" at the end of my senior year in high school was playing with old time 50′s rockers “Johnny & The Hurricanes” (who the Beatles actually opened for a couple of times), and then I left to study at Boston’s Berklee College of Music for two years at 19. After Berklee and a few years of playing all over Canada in show bands, theatre, etc. while based out of Toronto, I ...

For my guitar students, I have a lot of focus on understanding music more so than just the guitar. I like to teach the guitar by having my students learn actual songs, then go on to explain the ideas from a theoretical standpoint. I'm not just raising guitarists, but musicians!
My name is Michael R. I am a drummer, percussionist, guitarist, and musician. I have been playing the drums for 15 years, the guitar for 10 years, and I've just reached my 5th year of teaching as of 2014. Unlike most extraordinary musicians, I'm not necessarily 'naturally gifted.' I got to where I am as a musician by practicing and studying for years and with hard work and determination, anyone and everyone can be a killer musician! When I first started, I never caught on quite as quick as others, so I understand completely that patience is the most important aspect of becoming a musician. If you're looking for a stress free, patient, learn at your own pace learning experience, you've come to the right guy! *** Lesson Details *** I am not a strict teacher at all. I feel that learning ...
