I am professional touring musician with many years of real world experience learning songs and parts to play on stage. I remember what it was like to know nothing about the guitar and the hard work it takes to get proficient. I can help you discover your voice on the instrument, teach things that excite you and provide a solid foundation for learning

About Taylor K.

Hello! My name is Taylor K. and I am a guitarist currently living in Los Angeles. I am teaching guitar lessons online via Skype/Zoom! Any level, anybody, anywhere. Scales, arpeggios, country, blues, rock, pop, etc.

I know the last thing the world needs is another online music teacher but I think I do have something special to offer. I have a distinct memory of what it was like to not know anything about music and how hard it was for me to learn it. Wherever you're at in your playing, I've been there. Message me here for more info!

Taylor K. is a producer and guitarist living in Los Angeles, CA. He has produced records for Rye Davis, Maria Diem, and Eli Wain Scott. Before moving to L.A., Taylor worked in Nashville for four years, playing guitar for Rye Davis, Tanya Tucker, Deborah Allen, Kristen Kelly, and Josh Dorr, amongst many others. His debut album Coming Up for Air released in 2017 (praised by American Blues Scene for the way its “Sharp, intelligent lyrics combine with masterful musicianship throughout the entire album”) and was followed by two years of extensive touring across the United States. After relocating to Los Angeles in 2019, Taylor toured with critically acclaimed Americana artists Jaime Wyatt (New West Records) and Jason Hawk Harris (Bloodshot Records). Currently, he can be found gigging and recording locally around L.A., composing for Scorekeepers, or touring with Rye Davis as time permits.

Taylor is an amazing instructor. He taught my son guitar lessons and my son is left handed. Taylor was very patient and kind and explained extremely well. My son would still be taking lessons from Taylor but we have relocated. We have not found anyone as good as Taylor

I've watch Taylor perform in many different genres of musical events. He is an amazing guitar player, singer and performer. Since seeing him perform, it prompted me to start taking my son to guitar lessons with Taylor. Taylor is very patient with young students, teaching with a format that keeps "busy minds and eager hands" stimulated. It takes a special instructor to have the right attitude to teach guitar the right way in a step by step fashion. Any person at any level of guitar playing can learn from Taylors instruction.

I have had the pleasure of experiencing Taylor’s guitar skills for several years now. If you are looking for a teacher with experience, patience, and talent, Taylor’s your guy. His library of music knowledge and practical skills are thorough and diverse. No matter what music genre you want to master, or if you want to learn to play the electric or acoustic guitar, his skills will guide you to your passion. I can’t recommend him highly enough for children or adults. He has worked with both.

I've been playing guitar for over 30 years and mostly write songs, as time went by i started running out of fresh ideas on guitar and Taylor quickly honed in on what i was after and started showing me some concepts and ideas i hadn't thought of before so now I'm off to the races with fresh ideas. Taylor rules!

Taylor made my first guitar lessons very intuitive and interesting. He worked with me to learn songs I was interested in, and immediately introduced me to a metronome to start developing my time. I’m so excited about how much he helped me improve!
