Lesson Details

Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I'm offering guitar lessons for beginner to intermediate guitar players, any age. What's a beginner? You have no knowledge or experience playing. What's intermediate? You have limited knowledge and/or are familiar w/ chord names/shapes; can play a couple songs.

Lessons feature various styles of music, appropriate for all ages: blues, rock, pop, country, folk , jazz and reggae. Whether you want to play in a band or just have fun - your personalized lessons will help you achieve that goal!

I follow a structured way of learning guitar based on a Beginner and Intermediate Guitar Course I've created; and I customize the lessons according to the student's needs and wants. I also provide printed and online resources; backtrack music for practice; video supplements for the practice music/songs; and well known songs appropriate for each lesson.

You'll also receive access to a private, supportive FaceBook community. For new students, I provide an equipment suggestions list; and also offer in-person or over-the-phone help in deciding on equipment.

NEW students get one FREE lesson w/ each purchase. Also, will accept groups of 2-5. Allow 48 hours (Mon-Fri) before the first lesson is booked to give us time to have our initial meeting and prepare for your first lesson. Please contact me for more information. Thank you!

About

Rachel delivers an exceptional lesson experience and ranks in the top 15% of our teachers nationwide.
Teaches students:
and Ages 5+

Teaching since:
August 2016

Rachel started playing guitar and singing when she was 13 when she got a Christmas present from her father who happens to be a musician, also. Learning covers for a few years she eventually started writing her own music around age 16. Now, 31, she teaches beginner guitar classes; holds online concerts as well as live shows; and teaches budding artists how to start their own creative business from home. Her teaching passion came from her love for the experience- having played in bands since 18; recorded a full album when in 2011. Some tracks were salvage but most were lost on an old computer!

Her style is considered Indie Folk, playing a mix of covers and originals. Rachel's recommended if you like Heartless Bastards, Shawn Colvin or Fiona Apple. Her main influences are Radiohead, Gwen Stefani, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Modest Mouse and Death Cab for Cutie.

Rachel does an amazing job preparing each lessons material and uses a variety of media to make the weeks class easily understandable and accessible. Ours are completed online and I find it easy to learn and enjoy regardless of not being conducted in person. Rachel also finds ways to make the lessons fun and enjoyable through interaction. Highly recommended!
