Adam is a wonderful guitar instructor. He is very knowledgable and he is always calm, patient and very encouraging. He taught me a lot of ways to practice and enjoy music. Thank you Adam! I would highly recommend!

I took acoustic guitar lessons with Adam and he was a wonderful teacher. I had little knowledge of the guitar and felt I developed my skills quickly. Adam was patient, nice and came up with fun exercises and song selections. Would highly recommend Adam as a teacher!

I have played and taught music professionally for the last 8 years. I have a diverse background as a musician, playing multiple instruments (drums, guitar, bass, and piano), composing, arranging and producing. Lessons are personalized and accommodated for the student's personal needs/goals. My lessons consist of technique, music theory, sight-reading, and most importantly learning songs/music that you want to learn. In addition to teaching you all the basics of guitar, I try to incorporate time in each lesson where we are both jamming with each other. Since I play multiple instruments, I love being able to jam with students, so that they are able to learn how to make music with other musicians. ALL AGES WELCOMED!

I have been teaching mainly Guitar and Bass Guitar for about 8 years. My lessons are tailored to not only include the foundations needed to become a solid player, but also include the styles and songs you actually want to learn! Every student is different. So, I like to adapt my lessons as much as possible to not only the way each student learns, but also the goals and interests they have. I want to get you to the point that you can play the songs you love as soon as possible and have fun doing it! Whether you are 8 years old, 18 years old or 48 years old, I'd love to teach you!

We will put together a plan of action that is custom-tailored to your specific areas of interest! If you're not really sure but just want to be a better player, that's okay too! Students as young as 5 and older than 65 are welcome with experience levels ranging from complete beginners to prepping for professional auditions. Lessons are offered in 30, 45, and 60 minute intervals and are typically taught once per week with some students opting for twice a week or every other week depending on ambition and availability. Patrick has been teaching professionally for over 15 years and has a music degree from Berklee College of Music.

I was impressed with the one on one lessons. I got those lessons from Patrick after I took a group class with him. I learned a lot in that short lesson. A one on one was even better. He used Zoom to make the chord charts and everything available to me. I learned new major and minor chords in the first lesson. He understood my goals and was able to adapt to them and plan future lessons in an efficient way. I recommend lessons from him.

I offer private in-studio lessons tailored to your level and goals. Learn to play lead, rhythm, jam, and/or improvise. We can approach learning by using tab, standard notation, or by ear.

We'll focus on tunes you want to play, or take a broader approach incorporating reading music, ear training and theory.

If you’re just starting, we’ll begin with basic technique (holding the pick, strumming), playing chords and playing simple melodies.

About Max

I am a Berklee College of Music graduate in guitar & mandolin performance, and play in two 4-piece bluegrass/country bands and an acoustic duo. I've played over 400 shows since returning to Austin in 2016. Lessons are tailored to your level and goals. We can focus on tunes you want to play, inco

When I started taking lessons with Max, I knew three chords and very little about music theory. I never thought I would get past G-C-D. His patience and structured lessons helped me become a better player. Max is very encouraging and that was most appreciated. I have more confidence in my playing thanks to him. I even understand the circle of fifths!

Max is a very patient and experienced teacher. I enjoyed my lesson with him and will be back for more.

Hire Concetta, especially to support a beginning violin player! She is warm, professional and very adept at finding your child's musical strengths and then identifying material to help them access and enjoy the music and instrument.

"Excellent Teacher

Dennis is an all around great teacher. He is easy and comfortable to work with, but knows exactly how and when to get things done. Most importantly for me, Dennis was able to let me know which things I needed to work on to better my musicianship while also helping me figure out how to utilize what I had already accomplished to achieve new goals. As a metal player getting into jazz improvisation I had some really strong skills and many things that needed serious work. Dennis was able to help me use my strengths from previous experience to become better at something entirely new.
Mindful of tradition, but more interested in innovation, Dennis has a vast knowledge of modern styles, chord progressions, chord shapes, and scales you can't just learn from any guitar teacher. You can hear it on his record; Dennis is just as much of an individual in his playing as he is in his teaching. Unfortunately due to relocation I can no longer take lessons from Dennis but he got the ball rolling for me into new worlds of guitar playing and musical thinking that has been incredibly valuable to me."
