Charlotte, NC

We work on techniques in using a pick, and basics with left-hand technique. For Intermediate players, often I find students hit the "wall" and feel that they are not improving. This is when a teacher is crucial, and we begin to transition from practicing 'hard' to practicing 'smart'. We introduce a more focused approach to practice.

About Joseph
Joseph Rincón has been honing his abilities on the guitar for over eighteen years and has performed extensively throughout the United States and in Spain. He earned his B.M. in Performance degree from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, as well as receiving a formal recognition as “Outstanding Performer” by the faculty of the department of music. He also received two additional recognition and scholarships from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke for his exceptional skill in music performance.

In 2017, he completed the Máster en Interpretación de Guitarra Clásica program at the Universitat d'Alacant, in Alicante, Spain. During his time in Spain, he studied closely with world-renowned guitarists such as Manuel Barrueco, Xavier Díaz-Latorre, Pepe Romero, Fabio Zanon, and Grammy-Award winning guitarist David Russell.


Over the years, he has been recognized for his outstanding musicality and his passionate performances. His guitar playing and musicianship has been described as “a combination of deep and moving musical ideas with beautiful sound and refined technique”. His performances are energetic and highly expressive, whether he is performing for a large audience or a small and intimate gathering.

In addition to frequently performing in the Charlotte, Lake Norman, and surrounding areas, he is also an inspired music teacher. He teaches various styles of guitar, including electric and steel-string acoustic guitar, as well as different musical genres such as rock, blues, and folk. As an instructor, he wants to share his love of music with his students, and his goal is to awaken the musical potential in them. He is a highly dedicated professional with a desire to not only teach students how to play the guitar but to learn how to use the guitar as a vehicle of musical expression.

Gary had his first lesson and got over the jitters of being "the first time" as well as the app which made us nervous "Yes dad especially!" being I was used to old fashion face to face lessons back in the dinasour era.

Thanks Jonathan for the great lesson and introduction to this program.

I look forward to more future lessons.

Jonathan is an excellent instructor. My lessons were scheduled in the evenings and he accommodated my busy work schedule. He presented the lessons clearly; he adapted my lesson to my learning style and never forced me into just 1 style of learning. He also gave me a lesson manual and discussed alternative ways of practicing at home. Joanathan is extremely knowledgeable, I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn violin.

I'm here to bring out the best in you. What are your goals? I sincerely want to help you reach them and push beyond what you think you're capable of. If this is a hobby for you, that's cool too, but I will still push for the best in you. 😊👍🏻

I'll help you play your favorite songs. I can also help you learn how to write/record your own songs... or even coach you on how to perform them if needed. Send me a message to see if I can help. 👍🏻

About Cameron
Hey! I'm Cameron. Nice to meet you. I really love working with people who want to learn how to be great at something. I've been able to work with many different artists and helping bands work together to achieve a goal. I've played music in different parts of the US to Africa and India (working with students at an American Embassy School) and in places like bars, churches, the Christian Music Awards and even San Quentin Prison. My band (I was lead vox & acoustic guitar) was selected by Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic), Pete Wentz (Fallout Boy) and Matt Pinfield (MTV) to win a competition searching for "the next big thing" with SKYPE. I've won multiple International songwriting competitions and local pop awards with my band... along with having my songs in TV/Film and with Artists... None of this matters if I can't help you become your very best,
and that's what I love to do! My Strengths Finder test years ago that said I was a "Maximizer" which means I like to take things that are good and make them great. It was a great moment of clarity for me. I'd love to help you reach your goals! What do you want to do? Be a guitar player? Songwriter? Performer? Learn how to record your own songs? Or simply just learn your favorite songs? I'm here for ya! Feel free to ask any questions you'd like. Let's get together, have some fun and play some music. 😊👍🏻
