Private Guitar Teacher

I have a lot of practical and professional music experience to bring to my lessons, playing with many different bands across many genres. in addition, for my intermediate and advanced students, I accompany them on bass and drums to help them learn to play with other parts of a rhythm section when their goal is to play with other musicians. I'd also say that I take care to craft my teaching to what my students actually want to be able to accomplish, and find ways to teach them not only technique, but theory that is specifically helpful to what they want to be able to do.

About Marshall

I have ten years of teaching and performing/touring experience ranging across a number of different genres, and I was trained at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. I currently play for multiple groups in Philadelphia including one of my own called The Lion and the Badger.

Marshall has been working with my son on his acoustic guitar for nearly a year -- both online and in person. He is a terrific teacher -- Marshall is patient, kind, and engaging. He is readily able to assess my son's continuing abilities and tailor the lesson to his specific needs. Marshall is also a great communicator and is always quickly in touch if we need to reschedule or change lesson times.

Private Guitar Teacher

Students will learn basic chords, progressions, and scales on guitar while building a repertoire of songs that we'll choose together. During lessons students will be encouraged to sing if they'd like to learn to sing and play simultaneously. Students will also learn note reading and chord reading through written exercises. Intermediate students will learn basic improvisation and accompaniment skills.

I like to make lessons fun and engaging for my students. Practicing for the sake of practicing doesn't yield usually leave a lasting love for playing music. I'm passionate about helping my students figure out what kind of music they enjoy or connect with and giving them the tools and techniques needed to play their favorite songs and styles - and also be able to play with their friends. I'm happy to go as deep into theory as the student wants to go. Learning the guitar changed my life because it gave me a new way to connect with people, and I started playing in churches and bands at a young age. My hope is to help my you or your child develop a love and mastery of your instrument!

Beginner
I'm not currently taking beginner guitar students. Please refer to my studio partner Melissa:
https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62

Intermediate
Learn about common variations of the tonalities you already know and start to venture into more complex rhythm ideas like polyrhythms. Also start to build the chops to learn parts more accurately when learning songs.

Advanced
Expand into more complex polyrhythms as well as asymmetrical meters. Also expand harmony and melody to include modes and chromaticism. Push your skills through original creations or original arrangements of existing material.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"Dr. D teaches guitar to both our kids. He is well versed in music theory, styles and has functional knowledge of other cultural styles. He has demonstrated time again the ability to refocus our two teens who can be easily distracted during teaching sessions. They have shown progress over the last year and half that is twice that they had previously achieved in over 3 years of learning. While being direct in artistic feedback he is able to connect with the kids at their level to push them to a higher plane of finesse in using music theory and applying this to compositions they are undergoing training in. He does not compromise on quality of learning and does not hesitate to put in additional runs at practice or extra time till they get it right. He always starts with 'what's the progress and do you have any questions?" this essentially covers adequately the gap between learning sessions and the chance for the kids to pause and pick up anything they have not yet mastered. A unique touch was a duet that Dr. D got the kids to master over several weeks of patience with them, which now is an admired piece in our family gatherings (showing off their talents to the relatives/friends). He is very reasonable with time off requests for summer/spring vacations as well. We are very fortunate to have made his acquaintance as a teacher for our kids."

Rhonda is an excellent teacher. She has been able to teach 3 people in our home (me and my 2 daughters) on guitar and piano. She listens closely to what each of us is trying to accomplish and helps provide materials appropriate for all of us. It has been a pleasure working with Rhonda."

"I took weekly electric guitar lessons with Scott from 2004 to 2012. He is without a doubt an extremely talented, enthusiastic, and compassionate teacher. Whether he was helping me learn basic chords or teaching me complicated songs, Scott never wavered in his dedication to teaching. Over the eight years as his student, Scott gave constructive criticism in a courteous manner. He was on time, inquisitive about the songs and music I was listening to, and ended lesson with new material for me to practice. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to any aspiring guitar student."

"I started learning from Rob 5 years ago. I didn't think he'd want to spend time teaching me because I didn't know anything about guitar and he was so good. I was so wrong! Since our first lesson, he treated me like a friend, and 5 years later and we are great friends. I started off being able to play a couple notes, and now I can pay solos and songs and learn just about anything I want! Thanks Rob! Take Lessons from this guy! He's the Best!"

5 Easy Songs for Kids to Play On Guitar

Are your kids looking for easy songs to play on guitar? Get them started with these great suggestions from guitar teacher Willy M.... That first guitar lesson is critical for establishing a love of playing in our students, but most of the time teachers approach the instrument as though we need to prepare the student for the worst. "It will be difficult... You have to put in a lot of practice... Your fingers will hurt, etc." These things only serve to discourage the student and the parent, who …
