My son really looks forward to his lesson with Daniel. The method Daniel uses is working. My son is taking on-line lessons and in just a few lessons he's learned a lot. Daniel is very understanding and explain things clearly.

Teaching for over 24 years; owner of my own music store/studio for past 14 years.

Teaching beginner - advanced from age 5 to 70+.

I typically use the 21st Century Guitar method book with audio CD and I supplement the text with write-ins or handouts/worksheets as applied to the student's needs and questions. I try to get students playing chords as soon as possible; usually stating with open position power-chords and one or two finger open position chords.

I do flatpicking and fingerstyle ( with or without picks) and encourage students to try both. I try to get the student to sing and play - don't be bashful...I try to have fun with students.

I will help you learn to create chord progressions and write a chord chart and maybe a melody for your first songwriting experience. Usually we will do this using power -chords for beginners or what ever chords the student can handle.

I can train you how to learn songs by ear from recordings once you have some basic abilities.

About Sam
I play and teach Guitar (Electric/Acoustic), Bass (Electric/Upright), 5-String Banjo (Bluegrass and Old-timey), Violin/Fiddle, Mandolin, Dobro, Pedal Steel Guitar and Lap Steel Guitar, Ukulele, Piano and Piano Accordion. I have been teaching in the Pittsburgh area for over 20 years and owned my music studio/store for over 10 years. I have instructional book/cd(s) and instruments for purchase or rentals usually available on-site. I am experienced and friendly. Parking lot is free and off-street.

· Banjo · In studio
I went into banjo lessons not knowing if I could master the instrument or not, being nearly 70 years old. While by no means a master (and never going to be), I have learned so much from Sam and he has shown such patience with me. I often leave my lessons wondering how he ever puts up with me - but he does. His encourgement, laid-back style, expertise and knowledge of music (plus theory) and the banjo is impressive. His good nature makes my lessons so much more pleasant. I would say Sam is a a great teacher for both a beginner or an accomplished musician or in between. He likes to talk and demonstrate (nice and slowly if requested) so I would recommend hour-long lessons at first.

I have been an active performing musician in Pittsburgh for over ten years now. I am extremely versatile and have played in many varying styles of bands. I am not strict on a specific way to learn the different aspects of playing the guitar. There are many ways to approach the proper way to play whatever songs or styles you gravitate towards. I am well versed in blues, rock, metal, jazz, country, and folk styles. I am currently studying music composition at University of Pittsburgh, while at the same time playing in an original Punk/Metal band and the Pitt small Jazz ensemble. Whatever it is you are trying to learn on the guitar I can provide with the proper information and explanations to help you get there.

About Max
I am hip to all directions and interests in regards to your musical desires. There are of course core concepts in music and playing the guitar that must be internalized in order to progress as a musician but there are many ways to approach these ideas and concepts. Every person has their own unique talents and attitude that will effect how the learn. Improvement will always require work but the act of playing music at any level of ability should be fun and enjoyable. Whatever style of music speaks to you, and whatever ability on the guitar you are after I can provide you with proper direction to help you achieve your goals.

Max is a great guitar player and a good teacher. He teaches not only the techniques but also the music theories behind them. With his instructions, I learned how to analyze a song before learning to play it, which is very helpful.

I love teaching people how to play songs they enjoy! I'm not too focused on music theory, but am more interested on giving you the tools to play your favorite songs! Playing guitar doesn't have to be difficult or boring. Whether you want to play the Beatles on an acoustic guitar, learn your favorite Metallica riffs or even learn the basics to play at church...I'm your teacher!

About Serg
Hi! Music is my passion and, apart from my family, is my world! I play guitar, bass and sing. I have been playing since I was 12 years old and been teaching others since I was 15. I have recorded five albums with bands of my own and several albums as a studio musician. I have also played in most of the major cities in Texas where I am from. I currently play at my local church and have a few new projects coming up. I even play weddings. I love many types of music, but enjoy metal and oldies/classic rock the most. My favorite band is Metallica, but I also love the Beatles.

I am a self-taught musician and teach like one...with simplicity and fun. My teaching motto is simple...I want to get you playing something you recognize and enjoy quickly! Even though I have picked up some music theory over time, I find nothing beats the satisfaction
of learning how to play something you know and love!

Whether you want to play an acoustic guitar by the camp fire, play your favorite heavy metal riff, play in church or just play your favorite song, I can lend a helping hand. I can tailor your lessons to your preference. Just send me a message to see if I am the teacher for you! Rock on!
