My name is Melissa and I've been playing guitar for 19 years. When I was 10 years old, I asked my parents for a guitar for Christmas, and I haven't stopped playing since! I am currently enrolled at Berklee College of Music Online in the Guitar Skills Certificate. I have completed the first course, and am currently enrolled in the Guitar Scales course. I teach both acoustic and electric guitar. Guitar has always been a passion of mine. I took private lessons for over 5 years. During that time I learned rhythm guitar, lead guitar, classical guitar, and music notation. My primary method of instruction is guitar tablature. I enjoy teaching all kinds of music and especially enjoy classic rock and pop music.+ Read More
