I have been studying with Andrew for over a month now and I find mt his teaching technique is simply awesome. Andrew skillfully assessed my strengths and weaknesses and geared my lessons for n a way that showed benefits right from the start.
Oh ya, he’s a monster player too.

Hi, I've been studying electric mandolin and guitar with Andrew for some time. He is so kind and enthusiastic, and really understands how to teach me at my level. He has been teaching me the deep theory behind improvisation in bluegrass, newgrass, rock, folk...and has an incredible mind full of music, riffs, scales, and chords from all genres. I've gone back and forth from guitar to mando with him, translating the same information onto the different fretboard, building my knowledge and appreciation of music, and I can now improvise confidently while playing out!

I teach everything from basic chords to advanced lead guitar. If you have a desire to improve your skills and learn to play with the best sign up now!

Check out my videos below to see what I can do!

About Donnie
Want to carry out at least one of your life goals? Well, if one of your goals is to learn the guitar, I can certainly help you!

Hi! My name is Donnie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons for several years and have loved helping my students, Kevin, Andrew, and Avery (all of whom have left 5-star reviews) reach their goals! I strive to not only give my students exercises and riffs to learn, but to teach them the reasoning and Music Theory behind those notes and chords.

My teaching style is committed to showing you "how" to learn and not just throwing various songs, scales, and techniques at you. I will be firm and provide you with the accountability you need to move forward.

My favorite artists (many of whom have songs that are taught as part of my curriculum) are The Beatles, Metallica, Santana, Stev
ie Ray Vaghan, Nirvana, Green Day, Johnny Cash, The Eagles, Avenged Sevenfold, and many more!

Additionally, in 2017 I was given Takelesson's "Student Favorite" award. This means that I have consistently ranked in the top 15% of Takelessons teachers based upon reviews, number of students, and student retention!

Guitar has been a love of mine since I was 9 years old and I enjoy helping other people realize their full potential! I have training in standard notation and tablature, and I am equipped with the resources necessary to get you going quickly!

I graduated from Liberty University in 2018 with a Bachelors in Business Administration degree. Each week, I teach around 35-40 students! I am looking forward to helping you reach your goals!

Please feel free to use the "Ask a question" feature, I will reply to you as soon as possible.

I am truly passionate about your success in becoming the best guitar player you choose to be! I like to teach with repetition (wax on wax off) and prefer to present the big picture first so that every obstacle may potentially never be an obstacle for you. I take years of teaching experience and what have been topics of frustration brought to me from students in the past... I try to smooth the road and teach you so you get the highest yield of success for your money with as little headaches as possible :) for example: I begin with bar chords not folk chords. I would LOVE to have the opportunity to explain "WHY" and show you how great you can be in WAY less time than a traditionalist guitar teacher would get you...

Most music teachers from stores will give you a very standard non-personalized approach to teaching. My style of teaching focuses on the student's goals and needs. I teach Guitar, Bass, and Ukulele. I also teach songwriting skills, good practice habits, and stage presence/performance tips, the necessary skills required to be an original performing artist that I developed with my own experience pursuing a music career

About Edward
Hello! I'm Edward, a musician of 20 years. Since I was 9 I have learned so much about all facets of music, and I'd like to share my knowledge and experience with you. I've done various things, like performing in bands, performing solo, writing my own songs, composing music, audio production, and much more. I can teach you not only skills on your instrument, but all about what's important about being a musician.

Eddie is a phenomenal guitarist, and an amazing teacher. He really conveys the lessons well and his knowledge of the craft is extensive. It only allows a maximum of 5 starts up there but take it from me, I’d give Eddie 10/10. Would recommend for sure.

Edward has really brought me over the hump musically and made me into the musician I am today enough so where now I'm comfortable enough to play solo gigs. A very thorough teacher with a laid back agreeable personality, works well in many genres and techniques.

Learn to play like your favorite musicians! From hard rock to jazz and everything in-between. I have been playing, teaching and performing for over 20 years and am currently a professional touring musician. I learned from some of the best instructors while at Berklee and have developed a very unique way of teaching. Instead of learning right out of a book, I teach you real world applications that you can take directly from your lesson to the stage (or your practice room). We will focus on your strengths and tastes and develop a style that fits what you love about music. Hope to hear from you soon!

About Mario
I've been playing guitar for 31 years and been a professional musician and recording/mix engineer for over 23 years.

After attending Berklee College of Music for jazz guitar and composition, I moved to San Diego and opened a recording studio, where I recorded and produced over 200 different artists.

Throughout my career I have taught private guitar and bass lessons to students of all ages and skill levels. Seeing people develop their own style and grow as musicians, is one of the things that brings me the most joy.

I am now in a nationally known touring band and travel about 5 months out of the year performing across the US and Europe.
