Learn the guitar with a kind, patient, nurturing instructor.
I have been teaching for 9 years. I am very patient, kind and will nurture your talent. My curriculum will be different depending on the style of music you want to be taught, but music history, references, and listening material are to be expected. I am just a guide who is helping you on your journey, where you wish to go I will do my best to show you the way. Thx!:)
About Ronnie B.

Ronnie has been teaching private lessons since 2011 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home, at his studio, and online. Ronnie has helped students learn new instruments including guitar, slide guitar, harmonica, piano, banjo, and singing. He has also provided further training to more advanced students, and helped already existing artists to hone their craft further on their musical journey. Ronnie received his training from “The School of Hard Knocks”, is self educated through reading & online courses, gigging with bands, along side fellow singer-songwriters, performing solo and it all began on the street. This training started from an early age by way of singin' in church (as far back as he can remember), learning saxophone in elementary school, percussion in middle school, bass and guitar since thirteen years of age, harmonica since high school, piano since his early twenties along with banjo and slide guitar (learning from reading materials, and credible online courses from professional instructors). Ronnie has been playing music professionally since 2013, has successfully released an EP, a full length album in 2016 and is presently working on his second album now. As an expert in his field Ronnie looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Ronnies teaching style is encouraging, patient, and personal. He would love to meet you.

Ronnie is the best ! He’s so patient and knowledgeable about music . I’m excited to start my piano journey with him

Teacher's Studio

Ronnie is a spectacular instructor, he is very well rounded, and extremely knowledgeable. I have had a few lessons with Ronnie and I am a current student with more lessons to come. I have never been surrounded the music industry which singing was a long shot for me but Ronnie has made the experience fun and adventurous while still learning immensely. Ronnie’s best attribute is being patient with his students and helps the student understand the concept. Ronnie has a positive attitude, positive energy, and encourages positive behavior. He is always encouraging with students with positive affirmations.

As a complete newbie to the Harmonica, Ronnie was very thorough and patient with me. I look forward to having many more lessons with him.

Privately
I am a singer/songwriter who performs original music, Doo-Wop, Rhythm & Blues as well as Jazz or anything that resonates with me personally. I enjoy all types of music, but have found myself inspired by “era” music of predominately 50’s and 60’s ( including, but not excluding other decades as well). I also perform and collaborate with other artists in my field and pursue work for project based music (exp. Exhibitionist, Party Dozen) to keep the “ Jazz mind set” or “live” art form from dying, and to carry the torch for the great pioneers who paved the way prior to us by making true and genuine music for all to remember to grow and enjoy. May Triumph over adversity be Gods Glory Forever* -Ronnie B
