Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have much to offer the beginner/intermediate student. Besides teaching the student how to play his or her favorite songs, I can provide lessons in technique, reading music and tablature (so he or she can learn to play whichever song they want without the assistance of a teacher), fretboard knowledge and theory, improvisation, general music theory and composition (so that he or she can write his or her own songs), as well as general maintenance and repair, and practical knowledge regarding playing live, using and tweaking amps and foot pedals, etc. I use Guitar Pro 6 software as a visual aid, and can provide study sheets and notes in the form of Guitar Pro files (for the student who may have the program) or printed and/or .pdf documents (for the student who may not have the program). Each lesson will be geared toward the individual student's musical interests and desires, so whether you're interested in learning to strum along with your favorite song, or in pursuing a deeper understanding of the instrument, I've got you covered.

Teaching since:

My name is Charles, and I've been playing music for 22 years. I graduated with an Associates Degree in Music in 2009 and, since then, have been writing and recording my own music as well as performing with a live band from time to time. Although I'm new to teaching, I have a strong desire to share my knowledge about and passion for the guitar and music with those who want to learn. My main musical influences lie mostly within the rock genre, however i am very versatile and have experience with classical, country, pop, and hip hop as well.

Great instructor. I have learned a lot from my lessons with Mr. O'Neal. I was able to go away from the first lesson with the ability to play 3 different chords on the guitar. I highly recommend Mr. O'Neal!

A great instructor and a great guy. Talented player and a skilled teacher. He has helped me become a better musician by expanding my knowledge of the fretboard, while helping understand theory better.
