I've been teaching guitar for the past 15 years. My main goal is to provide students with the tools to play anything they want. Be it metal, classical, jazz, folk, country, bluegrass, rock, whatever! Techniques such as alternate picking is a main focus point, and that usual starts with playing through some classical pieces with a pick.
About Greg B.

Hey everyone, my name is Greg. Some of you may know me as the lead guitar player from the metal band Allegaeon. What most of your don't know is I love teaching!! Here's a little bit more about myself: I graduated from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, with a Bachelors degree in classical guitar performance. I have a passion for a wide range of music including fingerstyle acoustic, classical, jazz, heavy metal and funk. I'm currently in the internationally known metal band Allegaeon, on Metal Blade records. I've been called accomplished composer, some songs of which have been released on Fragments of Form and Function€ (2010), a record some critics have hailed as one of the best metal records of 2010, and one inews called "one of the greatest debut albums of all time". Our follow up record "Formshifter" broke at no. 2 on iTunes, and reached 3 Billboard charts, and our latest Elements of The Infinite, which debuted at no. 1 in Canada, and no 3 here in the States. I've toured extensively throughout the continental US and Canada with Allegaeon, as well as the Midwest with classical ensembles and as a solo artist. I've also had an arrangement of Pink Floyd's €œAnother Brick in the Wall Pt. III€ featured on MTV by a group of my students. My students have gone off to Berkeley School of Music, and the Peabody Conservatory. As well as done some nation wide touring supporting the band Yes. I have been certified through the Suzuki Institute of Chicago, so I'm trained to teach your young ones as well. *** Lesson Details *** I'm pretty laid back when it comes to teaching, and I have a lot pf patience. I pride myself in taking a pretty unique approach, in that I use the students interests to present the basics, and tailor the lesson to the goals and interests of that student. I am Suzuki certified, and I have a BM in Guitar Performance from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. I perform and teach various styles of guitar music, from classical, to Michael Hedges fingerstyle acoustic, to rock and metal. *** Studio Equipment *** We usually sit at my dining table and go through the lesson each week. Students are welcome to bring an amp if they need one, however most students just play unplugged. *** Travel Equipment *** I have my gear, all I would require is a notebook from the student. *** Specialties *** I'm Suzuki certified, and have have my students go on to tour the US extensively. My arrangements have appeared on MTV's Made program, and I myself am a founding and current member of a international touring band.

Greg is an amazing teacher. I am currently sending my two sons to him and they are learning quickly. He's kind, patient, and very knowledgeable with his craft.

So professional, friendly, talented, understanding, kind and willing to work with my physical limitations. Can't even begin to imagine a better instructor for me, this is probably the best decision I've ever made

I'm blown away at what I have learned in less than two months with Greg B. He is passionate about his work and a highly skilled musician. Greg B. is an exceptional teacher. He quickly picked up on my level of playing which relieved me as I had experience playing and had taken lessons about 10 years ago. He is very attentive to watching my technique and giving me advice on how to improve upon myself. Don't let the metal guitarist thing hold you back. Greg is kind, easygoing, knowledgeable, and very talented. He has answered all my questions so far about guitars and music. I'm glad I found him through this site. As a fan before I met him, it's cool to get a head nod from a guy I jam out to in my car.
