As a self-taught guitarist who later went to college for music and now runs a guitar curriculum blog, I tailor all my lessons to the student's age, ability level, music interests, and preferred learning style. No matter what Riffs, Parts, Changes, and Improvisational skills you want to learn, I can teach you, but more than that, I can teach you how guitarists teach themselves.

As a 57 year old student Rich understands life and its commitments. I enjoy the half an hour with him. My appreciation for music has grown with Rich. He introduces me to material I would have never picked on my own. I am still taking banjo lessons because of Rich.
Thank you Rich. Bob

I started teaching private music lessons my senior year of high school, in 2006. Since then I've taught over 100 different students of all ages from 3 years old to 78 years old.

You want to play music that means something to you. Whether you just want to play for yourself or for your family and friends, or maybe you want to play in a band and entertain adoring strangers, I’m pretty sure your favorite song isn't Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

I promise you, no stifling method books with hokey songs and no rote practice of scales with no end in site. It's always about the music you love.

We'll pick a song you want to learn. I’ll identify the techniques you need to play it and provide you with skill building exercises directly related to learning some part of the song. We’ll look at the structure of the song and anything else to help you learn it. If the song requires advanced techniques, I’ll break it down into what you can do now; we’ll use the remainder to guide your development.

You’ll follow a logical progression of skill building but always in the context of real songs.

About John

I teach adult beginner rock guitar players. You are not too old to start playing guitar! I believe learning in the context of songs the student knows and enjoys is the best approach for adults. So I start out by finding out what you listen to, who inspires you musically, and what songs you would

Private Guitar Teacher

Guitar students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are a part of basic music vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Chords are also basic vocabulary of the musical language.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the students' goals. However, I strongly encourage everyone learn to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. The student chooses what songs they want to play, guided by my suggestions; Jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, R &B - "How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"

A beginning student will practice all

Phil is a consummate musician and is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He helped me to arrange several songs and encouraged me to write my own arrangements, as that really helps one better understand the instrument. I loved our lessons on learning all the scales and modes, too.

Phillips teaching is very low key and suttle but very effective. I am astounded at how much he has taught me in a few weeks.

"Ryan is the third guitar teacher I have tried and in my opinion the best. While the others I tried were either too unstructured or too technical, Ryan does an excellent job of teaching you the all the basics while tying in the more technical theory aspects in a manner that is both efficient and logical. The way he is able to break things down has helped me progress much faster compared to my other guitar teachers. He is also well versed in adapting yours lessons to the style of music you want to learn how to play and can teach you all the different nuances that will help your playing stand out. I highly recommend giving Ryan a shot to help your reach your guitar playing goals."

"Phenomenal & Friendly Instructor

Tim is a phenomenal instructor! I have tried expensive videos by Marty Schwartz, subscription services like JamPlay.com, and have spent hundreds of dollars on Skype lessons with popular YouTube instructors like Mike Gross. In the year that I have been playing, one month of lessons with Tim did more for my playing than 11 months with the other methods I've tried. You owe it to yourself to give Tim a month of your time. He transformed my understanding of the guitar, has taught me to be self-sufficient with learning songs I hear, and has made playing exciting. Without being able to articulate exactly what I wanted to accomplish, Tim's uncanny intuition for balancing what I think I needed with what I really need took my playing to the next level very quickly. Nothing can substitute the depth of his musical knowledge, but more importantly, his keen sense of feeding me just what I need from everything he knows. Tim carefully plans out a lesson for me based off of my progress, has me take notes, and gives me ideas on how to improve before my next lesson. The most exciting day of my week is the hour I spend learning from a great instructor and a great human being. I couldn't be happier with my decision to learn how to play from Tim."

Aside from a keenly intelligent approach to teaching, Ahmad has a way of helping his students discover a true passion for music. He has immense respect for his students, and he wants them to succeed. He manages to help them understand the fundamentals while allowing them to explore their creativity and realize their potential. My son spent only a couple of years training with Ahmad, and he still regards him as one of the most influential people in his life. He taught him, he listened to him, he believed in him, and he contributed to his lifelong dedication to music. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished musician, learning from this amazing guitarist is the best thing you can do for your pursuit of music!"

"Enthusiastic presentation of music theory, concepts, and practice. Empathetic and patient, Keith has taken the time necessary to learn my taste in music, goals, in music, and purpose for pursuing music. A comfortable studio in his home has proven to be a positive learning environment. He also has introduced multiple styles of play to inspire me to explore expanding myself with the guitar.
It was required that a college syllabus was to be followed to meet credit award. Keith was able to instruct guitar in a manner which allowed this student to retain an interest, expand desire, and maintain discipline necessary to continue playing. By integrating music theory and notation into practice, Keith was able to clarify expected requirements to meet the demands of a college syllabus. Utilizing computer technology, lessons have been enhanced as well. This has also nurtured the continued learning desire. I would recommend Keith as an instructor to accelerate anyone's ability to play the guitar."
