Overview

Hi, my name is Rosgo. I've been teaching guitar for about 15 years. I've studied under many musicians from the age of 10 to 59 I teach rock, metal, blues and country. I focus lessons on what you want to learn. I teach to read music and understand tablature. I can teach you how to sweep shred, harmonics, tapping, playing over the top, drop tuning, slide, playing chords, finger picking and lead.

We love Ross! He is a very sweet and patient teacher that my daughter liked right from the start. He is extremely flexible when it comes to the lessons and always open to any requests. My 9 year old daughter plays the ukulele but had expressed interest in learning to play guitar someday so now they do a little of both. He even quite generously gave her a guitar that became available to him, which we thought was pretty amazing! He’s the real deal folks and I highly recommend him to any age that wants to take lessons. You won’t be disappointed! ~ Steph & Harmony

Ross is an excellent teacher. It sometimes takes me a while to understand something, and he is very patient with me, and works with me until I succeed. I always look forward to my next lesson.

I have been taking guitar lessons with Rosgo, and I have learned so much. He keeps it simple. Lessons are enjoyable I would definitely recommend Rosgo to others who would like to pursue playing vuitar.

Awesome! He is very personable and easy to talk to. I think that is very important when trying to learn from a person.

Rosgo has taught me everything I know from the first day i picked up a guitar. He has an amazing way of motivating me to tackle advanced techniques I never would have thought possible. He's the best instructor I have ever known!

Rosgo has pushed me to be more of a guitar player and song writer than I ever knew possible. He has been a great inspiration and my life will be forever changed from his teaching and constructive criticism! Thank you, Rosgo! Rock on!

My 7-year-old daughter has been taking drum lessons from Rosgo since this past fall and she has really enjoyed it and improved weekly. Rosgo has a good handle on drum basics and organizes her lessons in a way where each week builds on the previous week. He has been very flexible as our lessons moved from a music store to our home after the owners of the store retired. He has been a positive influence on my daughter as well and she truly loves him as a teacher. If you are just starting out on the drums, Rosgo is the perfect teacher for you.

I know. You came here for a guitar instructor. Well you've found a great one. Ross is a guitarist and a multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire. Me? I played, self-taught, conga drums for years and then I met Ross. He taught me the two most important aspects of learning any instrument ... daily practice and timing! Having a fantastic guitarist to practice / take lessons with was a wonderful experience. The fellow is talented. He plays guitar, drums, bass, harp and even dabbles in vocals. Want to learn blues? Rock, Country? Doesn't matter ... this fellow does it all. Indeed, I enjoyed his company so much I have found a guitar so I can begin guitar lessons next month.
