Learn guitar from an expert teaching professional with 30+ years experience performing and writing!
I'll take you from zero knowledge and show you the world of music. The possibilities are endless, but I'll get you to YOUR goal. You'll know musical keys, notes, scales, chords... how does it all fit and work together? I'll show you! I provide jam tracks with specific goals in mind. Knowledge plus ability equals musical freedom! I'm influenced by my idols, but I play many genres and cater to improve everyone's technique based on interest.
About Kyle K.

TakeLessons.com Instructor since 2012, a professional TV and Trailer Composer and Sound Designer, Kyle is now available for online lessons worldwide featuring a screen sharing experience like no other for personal and detailed instruction! Kyle has been playing guitar and bass for over 25 years, played countless live shows, written thousands of published songs and is currently a professional Television/Trailer Composer and Sound Designer using Ableton Live Suite 11. Credits include all major networks and shows like American Idol, NFL games and movies trailers for Jurassic Park, Independence Day and Dune. He has developed his own method of teaching to positively build on each student's strengths, dexterity, music theory, ear-training, natural technique, memorization and creativity. The goal is to always design lessons around you as an individual to help you reach your goals as an artist, producer or musician. Whether it's guitar, bass, songwriting, music production or sound design this method is used to maximize results! A word from Kyle K: "I love music! To me, it's a way of life. From listening to playing to writing and of course teaching. I grew up with music all around me at school and home. My dad was a piano player and teacher so music has been a part of my life since day one and I want to share what I have learned. Everyone has a unique musical talent and I enjoy helping them find it. I believe that anyone can be an excellent musician. Playing an instrument, writing or producing should be a fun and creative adventure. Whether it's strumming at home, playing out in the clubs, or writing the next big hit, I will do my best to get you there! My musical life began when I was in 5th grade and my dad bought me a saxophone, which I played for over 12 years. I quickly learned how fast I could improve if I simply kept playing with focus. When I hit my teen years I fell in love with rock music and mowed enough lawns to buy my first guitar. I jammed and wrote songs with many other musicians and several bands over the years. We played countless shows and released a few albums. Now I write and produce music and sound design daily for TV, Film and Trailers for companies like Disney, Universal, MTV, NFL and many more. I started teaching over 15 years ago and found that it is one of my favorite things to do. Helping others grow into great musicians is rewarding and fun. I've learned that from grade school to retirement, each student is a unique and special individual. My lessons reflect that fact so that we can reach all your goals together. *My personal goal is to get my students to understand and to write the music they want that will stay with them and encourage them to continue." *** Lesson Details *** Everyone is different, and every lesson should be suited to fit the individual. Depending on the type of lessons (guitar, bass, music production, theory, etc.) the style of teaching will be adjusted to fit. It's all about YOUR goals and needs. *We'll start slow and build your knowledge base with each lesson. *You can expect to understand what you are doing AND be able to write or produce your own music if desired. *You will be given everything you'll need to succeed including custom made songs so you can improve at home. Let's start learning, playing and producing today! *** Specialties *** *Instruments: Guitar & Bass -Rock, Blues, Metal, Indy, Folk and Americana styles. *Production: Ableton Live, Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Programming, Virtual Inst, MIDI, Production, Sound Design. *General Music: Theory, Songwriting, Producing.

Amazing instructor! Really tailored the lesson to my level and taught so many critical tips and tricks. Loved that he shared his experience (which is A LOT BTW) and really helped me see where I could grow.

Kyle knows Ableton, recording, and music inside and out. Taking one on one lessons with Kyle has saved me so much time and headache. The end result speaks for itself.
