Private Guitar Teacher

All ages are welcome! I've been playing guitar for 15 years, and been involved in multiple groups and bands (playing guitar, bass, drumset, marching drums, and sometimes vocals) since 2008. I teach fundamentals of playing (finger-picking or with a pick), how to read tabs, alternate tunings, chord structure, the importance of scales, and can help you learn to pick up your favorite songs just by listening to them! If you are interested, I can also show you how to get started on recording your own music!

Danilo is a really great drum teacher. Challenging, but also meets you at what ever level you're at. When limbs don't know how to rally together for a new thing, he's a very good cheerleader until it comes together or helps make it make sense to break through that wall. Enjoys good music too. Super recommend.
Charles
Great teacher. Fills me with confidence. Also it is awesome and inspiring to hear him play.

Danilo is great! He adjusts each weeks lesson to adapt to my needs. Patient, easy going, and very knowledgeable about what I need to work on and giving me exercises to work on between lessons. Highly recommend!

I have just started guitar lessons with Stan and the lessons are going very well. It's exciting to be learning note reading which is something I have always wanted to do. Stan is thorough and clear in his instructions and I look forward to each lesson. I feel lucky to have Stan as my teacher.
Samuel K.
Stan is very knowledgeable about singing, and he teaches more than just voice lessons. It seems like he looks for the best in you as an artist, and try to take it to another level. I'm a new student of his, and it's been great so far. Looking forward to the weekly lessons.

Stan is obviously both knowledgeable and talented but he is also a very good teacher and will tailor your lessons not only to your ability but also to your own personal goals

I came to Paul for some voice lessons before my band entered the studio. Not only did he help me improve my voice and ear training, but he gave me many tools to improve my timing, vocal range, and knowledge of theory. I highly recommend him!

About Will

Will Fletcher Instruction has been going strong since 2009. New students starting this year are doing great along w all the older, more musically advanced students. I want you to play music. I don't care how we get there as long as on your specific instrument you want to learn, you are making music

Will was everything I expected. I was looking for someone to teach naturally as opposed to rote (boring) learning. I'm sure Will can do rote but he did what I asked.

He really knows his music and can teach in a way that gets my son directly into actually playing music, which is exactly what I was after.

He’s really flexible and can take anything and turn it into something good.

The pace was spot-on, matching perfectly the maximum my son could understand at the time.

I think my son learnt the absolute maximum he could in that short space of time and he learned a LOT.
Eddie
Great Fun!

things are going well.....Will is a very helpfull and agreeable teacher....am considering more lessons in the future....but i don't like this company's auto renewing me for lessons...but...that ain't Wills fault....i look forward to seeing his Studio in Action!.....that's the next lesson.....

"I started taking lessons with Ahmad over 5 years ago as a wee beginner. Looking back at where I started, I'm surprised at how much progress I have made and have learned more than I ever expected to.

It is obvious from the start that Ahmad is not only an phenomenal guitar player, but also, and more importantly, displays a strong passion and dedication for teaching. Each lesson is carefully designed and structured to build off of techniques previously learned and Ahmad has a knack for making even difficult concepts easy to digest. He imparts simple tips and tricks, mined from years of experience, that have helped me master techniques and avoid tedious memorization exercises which would have made the learning process agonizingly painful. Having one-on-one lessons also allows Ahmad to give me the personal attention needed to provide feedback, positive and negative, and nip bad habits in the bud before they become ingrained. Additionally, each lesson comes with handouts which are handy to practice with and use as a reference (I have 400+ pages of material so it's important to keep it all organized).

Ahmad has a diverse set of musical tastes and a secondary benefit of taking lessons with him is that he's exposed me to a plethora of great music that I would not otherwise have discovered on my own. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or think you can rival Joe Satriani, there's something for you to learn from Ahmad. Also, I've found that lessons are very motivating in terms of encouraging me to keep practice because, yes, I do get lazy sometimes. With Ahmad, if you put in the time and effort, you will be rewarded greatly with the freedom to be as creative as your heart desires and you will have more fun playing the guitar than a mouse running loose in a cheese factory.

Oh, and Ahmad's a super cool guy too."

"If you want to learn how to play guitar then give Ahmad a try. I've been going for 1 year and have learned a lot. Ahmad is great. He can adapt the lesson to fit your needs and knows how to explain things without overwhelming you. I'm very glad I decided to take lessons here instead of picking up bad habits from my musician friends!!"

"Love for music

My 8yr old daughter takes guitar lessons with Josh in a classroom setting, and has been for about a year now. I looked around for a teacher for a while before finding Josh and have been very pleased with the class and the progress my daughter has made. Josh really has a love for music that transfers well into the classroom. He is very patient with the students and puts effort into connecting with each of his students. We are very blessed to have found him and are grateful for foundation he is giving my daughter in music."

"As a 40 year old just deciding to play guitar I was quite intimidated to get started. From the first lesson Marc made me feel very comfortable. He does a fantastic job of customizing the lesson to your interests as well as targeting area's for improvement to help you reach the goals you've set.

He is patient and encouraging and is very effective at helping you to understand the learning timeline to keep you interested and motivated.

I would highly recommend Marc to anyone beginner or advanced, he does a phenomenal job."

"I've been taking lessons with Eric for about 6 months once a week for 1h online, we have been mostly focusing on lead guitar playing. Before that I couldn't really play solos, now I can play solos of about 19 songs to some extent, some better than others. I got to a level when I can learn new solos on my own of most songs that I like, which was way too hard just half a year ago. Eric is a great teacher, very knowledgeable about all things related to a guitar."

Guitar Chord Charts: 11 Easy Tips to Read Fingering Charts on Acoustic Guitars

While it's true that you don't need to read music to play the guitar, you should learn how to read guitar chord charts. A guitar chord chart is a visual representation of a chord. This helpful visual is a little like music-by-numbers; it tells you which finger goes where and on what string, so in case you come across a chord you don't know, you'll be able to play it. Here's an example of a guitar chord chart, also known as a guitar chord diagram: Guitar chord charts are a cinch …
