Private Classical Guitar Teacher

Music has a profound affect on our quality of life and perception. No matter the skill level, the joy of listening and performing music is something nearly every person finds valuable to their life. I feel it is a privilege to have the opportunity to share my understanding of music with others.

I have been teaching publicly and privately for over 10 years. I teach music using songs the student(s) listen to. Fundamentals are introduced using the music that you love. I studied Music Education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) as well as classical guitar (IUP) and jazz guitar (IUP, Duquesne Faculty).

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

20 years plus of teaching experience working with students from kids to adults means I know how to teach guitar! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I grew up in the rock era so I am super at home teaching classic rock. I later expanded into classical guitar, Jazz, blues, bluegrass and fiddle tunes. I love working with students that are excited to learn and motivated to practice. I have legit educational credentials from UNT, Denton, TX and have studied classical guitar in Spain and Italy. I'm ready to help you achieve your musical goals, let's get started!

About Warren

I began my musical journey at an early age. My early influences were my mother who was trained as a classical pianist / visual artist and father who played Johnny Cash and Ventures tunes on the guitar. Growing up music was always in the around the house. From Debussy, Ravel, Tchaikovsky to folk, co

Warren was my first and only private lesson teacher outside of a school program. I first started taking lessons with Warren back in 2012 when I was 12 years old. At this time I got my first guitar and had no prior music knowledge. After a few lessons, Warren taught me the very basic blues progression and made it very fun and interesting. My first few lessons is the reason I stuck with him for 6 years and kept returning weekly. Throughout those years Warren shaped me to become my own as a musician by teaching me how to play the instrument as a whole rather than songs (although we did go over plenty of essential songs). As I grew as a musician with more questions, Warren presented me with practices, theory, and other concepts to give me all the answers I was looking for. I highly recommend him as a teacher as he will work with you and be loyal to your musical journey. He was even generous enough to teach me some basic piano! I would not be as involved in music as I am now if I had any other teacher.

My son is learning to play acoustic guitar from Warren McDonald and has been doing so for several years. Warren is an excellent guitar and music teacher. First he is formally trained and clearly has a strong theoretical music background. His teaching style and personality and knowledge of various musical genres is well suited to teaching musicians of all ages and interests. I have heard Warren play classical guitar and classic rock and folk guitar music. He also is a fine pianist. He has inpsired my son who is 15 and has been taught how to play some fairly impressive classic rock and instrumental pieces. I highly recommend Warren McDonald.
Noah
I have studied with Warren for several years. He has helped me grasp music theory and enabled me to take my playing to the next level. I highly recommend Warren to anyone looking to start with the guitar and also for students looking for a new direction with their playing.

I started lessons with Bill to learn classical guitar after 5 years of self-taught electric and steel string acoustic playing. My playing has improved immensely since I started working with him. Not only has he introduced me to classical guitar but he has taught me how to effectively practice to constantly improve. Bill has a wealth of experience and knowledge to draw upon and I cannot say enough good things. A++
Charles
I have been a classical guitar student of Bill's for the past 6 months. In retirement, I have decided to take what was an "off and on" affair with the classical guitar (I'm not a beginner) and, instead, commit the necessary time and energy to truly learning the instrument. These have been my first serious classical guitar lessons. Prior to these lessons, I was entirely "self-taught" which means I created a whole bunch of bad habits for myself and was not progressing at all. Bill refers to me as a "remedial" student which I think is a perfect description of my playing. Through Bill, I have learned proper technique which, in turn, has improved my tonality and musicality with the classical guitar. Bill has identified my bad habits, broken them down, shown the proper way to overcome them and makes sure I don't "back-slide" into my bad habits again. Bill paces the lessons according to ability, not covering material that's too advanced while still ensuring that the lesson is challenging. In each lesson, Bill is positive, encouraging yet kindly critical so that I know I am making progress yet always aware of what areas I need to work on. Bill has the right "make-up" for a teacher and I am pleased, and without reservation, to give Bill a 5 star rating.
Steve
I have been a student of Bill's for almost three years. Bill's teaching is characterized by clarity of expression, high standards, patience and an upbeat and pleasant disposition. He is always clear and direct when explaining the technical aspects of playing- no matter how complex the matter at hand. He holds you (and himself) to a high standard- no shortcuts- you learn to do it right. Yet he is so pleasant to be with that every minute of every lesson is truly enjoyable. Every time I leave I am ready to practice and can't wait to return.

Trevor is the real deal! He takes the time to get to know you and listen to what your needs may be or what you desire to accomplish in the lessons.
Then he breaks it down and takes the speed you are comfortable in learning and does not overwhelm you. I feel very comfortable with him and I am tons more advanced then I could even imagine. I’ve only done 3 sessions so far and can’t wait to see my progress with 5 more lessons to go. Great guy on top of it:). I highly recommend Trevor to anyone.

I've been working with Trevor for just over a year. His teaching goes beyond just dry technique and theory to answer the question "why am I doing this?" When you work with Trevor, there is purpose behind everything you do. He starts with your big picture goals and breaks them down into actionable steps that you can take feeling like it's going somewhere. This makes for way more efficient and exciting practice sessions. If you don't know exactly where you want to go with your playing, Trevor will help you find that as well.

I can teach classical guitar from beginner to a college level. My teaching is based on the Lopez-Ramos model which is world class in its results. I also work with students to play the music they desire. I have had students in the past learn bossa nova, south American styles. I also teach theory and sight reading with the lessons.

Greg quickly assessed the starting point for our lessons. He said it was helpful that I had filled out the survey form in advance of the first lesson. He seems to have a good balance between correct form and good sound. I’m looking forward to working with him.

"I feel it's safe to say that Jason would be a great teacher for anyone. I am a 78 yr old who has been self-teaching classical/fingerstyle for years but to really make progress I need instruction from a good teacher. I had my first lesson with Jason and am confident that he will prove to be the right instructor for me. He is extremely skilled, versatile, patient, and definitely personalizes his instruction for the student. I am more enthused about playing than I’ve been for years – and only after one lesson!!"

"Classical guitar lessons with David

Off and on since my 20s I've fooled around with guitar lessons but never lasted very long. I am 62 now. I relayed this to David and he laid out an organized plan for systematic improvement. But he was very honest with me about the importance of good practice habits. I've been with him almost 5 months and showing progress. His enthusiasm and patience is appreciated. Thanks, Dave."

Learning Classical Guitar: Can I Use Tabs or Should I Read Music?

Whether you're brand new to guitar, or just new to classical guitar, you might be wondering, "what's the deal with tabs and sheet music?" Let guitar teacher Raymond L. clear up the fog and put you on the right path to classical guitar success... To get started, let's be sure to clearly distinguish standard musical notation from what we call nowadays "tab" notation. What is Tab? The name tab, or guitar tab, is derived from tablature, a form of musical notation indicating fingering an …
