When it comes to Acoustic Guitar, everyone wants to know how to pick one up and play something they know and love. That passion comes through in our lessons. I will teach you how to play with passion, learn your instrument, and impress others while you serenade them with your songs, popular or original!

About Jesse
Hi, My name is Jesse. I discovered my passion in music when I was 15 and saw another student playing guitar in school. Ever since I received my first guitar at age 16, I was hooked. Not a day went by that I didn't pick up the instrument and pour my energy and soul into my playing.

I specialize in teaching students how to unleash their creativity while also following a disciplined learning method. Music is meant to be fun, creative, and expressive, and I help students find this passion. After discovering their passion, practice and honing their skills will lead to more professional ventures and possibly a career!

Specialties: Guitar, Leads, Rhythms, Fingerpicking, Solos, Improvisation, Recording, Songwriting.

I am excited to be teaching again in Central Florida after recently returning from traveling abroad. I haven't been on Take
Lessons.com since 2014, so I am grateful to be back!
Please feel free to write me for any questions you may have.

Jesse has been a fantastic teacher for my Son. He is very patient and adapts to the pace of the student. Apart from just teaching my son music , I am seeing some good personality improvements as a result of his interactions with Jesse.

Thanks

Ted is extremely knowledgeable about music theory and is a talented guitarist. We had talked briefly before our first lesson so he could assess my goals...and he literally managed to fill in the missing pieces and get me the information that I needed in the very first lesson to be able to achieve my goal. It's an overwhelming amount of information, and now it's on me to silly what I've learned and practice, practice, practice! But in five short lessons my understanding of music has changed dramatically, and as a result, my playing has improved as well.

Thanks Ted!

· Guitar · In studio
My name is Ronald S. At the age of 9, I started playing the guitar for my Father's Gospel Group who is a great Gospel D.J. (Big Clyde). Through the years I have taken several guitar courses from several instructors. In the last seven months I have taken instructions from Mr. Christian, I have excelled further and have learned more than all my other adventures.

Micheal's business based environment in an open studio type classroom is a must. In Micheal's unique style of teaching you not only learn to play the guitar, but he also instructs you in song with a spirit of being well satisfied.

As shoppers pass through the store they enjoy the sounds of students playing their guitars following the guidance of Mr. Christian. This also gives his students a chance to perform in front of other people giving them a finer definitions for the art of music. If you are looking for a music instructor, one who focuses in on your difficult areas and searches for improvement to make you the best musician possible in all areas, or if you are just looking to learn and have lots of fun, then Mr. Christian is your contact. Please visit him at one of his jam sessions..

In April of this year, I retained Michael to instruct my 13 year old daughter, Jennifer, in guitar lessons. I was quite impressed with Mr. Michael right from the beginning.

Since I knew nothing about guitars, I had no idea what type of guitar to purchase for Jennifer. Mr. Christian offered on his own time to go with us to help in the purchase of the guitar. He kept in mind what we could afford and the quality of the guitars, it was very reassuring to know that he was looking out for our welfare and to be able trust him.

I am very impressed with the progress Jennifer has made in playing the guitar. She looked forward to her lessons with Mike. She looked forward to her lessons with Mike. He made the lessons interesting and "fun". Mike not only taught her to play the guitar but also how to read music and understand it.

Mike is a very kind, moral, talented young man and I recommend him highly. We are sorry to see him leave, however, our loss is your gain.

Experienced teacher of 5 years, specializing in beginner/ intermediate guitar, voice and performance. All ages welcome. Whether you're looking to play the blues, serenade your crush, shred face-melting guitar solos, or any other smattering of skills, lessons will be catered to meet the individual goals of the student. Not to mention random bits of musical trivia, picked up from years of obsessive Wikipedia reading.

About Jake
Music fills virtually my entire life. When I was 12 years old I picked up my dad's old guitar, played a few chords, and haven't put it down since.

I am currently studying Composition at Macalester College, but my experience goes far beyond the classroom. I sing in the advanced Concert Choir, as well as in Macalester's premier acapella group, and I am the frontman of a locally prominent band. I have been performing since I was 14, and have opened for several noteworthy artists, including Lion Babe, Lil' Dickie and T-Pain.

With me, students can expect to not only learn the guitar but also invaluable performance techniques, music theory, music history and more. Whatever your musical goals, be it acoustic songwriting like Taylor Swift or Ed Sheeran, shredding guitar solos like Jimi Hendrix or Joan Jett, or intricate rhythmic strummings li
ke John Frusciante or Nancy Wilson, I am determined to help you succeed.

Have you ever been in a class where the teacher might as well have been an adult from the Peanuts? You stare at them with a glazed over expression hearing "womp womp womp." This is NOT that kind of lesson. I realize that we all are different and therefore learn differently. I try my best to connect with the individual and teach in a style that best fits each person. Cookie cutter teaching just doesn't cut it!

About Emilia
I am a singer, guitarist, songwriter, and an overall music enthusiast in general. During the duration of my first Bachelors (BA) degree, I specialized in music. Over the years, I have performed over many platforms both in the U.S. and abroad. Engaging in many different styles from jazz, country, to indie alternative.
My students have ranged from kids looking to discover a love for music to adults looking to recreate themselves. Music is one of my biggest outlets so I am passionate about helping others find their niche as well.

Lessons are customized to fit the needs/goals of each student. You will build a strong foundation of music theory (ear training, sight reading, technique, and more), and you will be playing songs in no time! I look forward to helping you on your musical journey!

About Miguel
Miguel "Mike" Torres III has been teaching private lessons since 2006 and is currently available to teach lessons at his home studio in San Antonio, in your home, or online! Mike is very proud of the work he has been able to help his students accomplish and looks forward to expanding his studio here in the Alamo City. Whether it is learning the basics of playing an instrument, learning to read music, expanding your performance repertoire, getting to the next level of music theory, or advancing your skill level, helping students in expanding their musical capabilities is the ultimate reward for Mike.

Originally from California, Mike began his musical journey at age 2. Beginning on drums, Mike later began to also study and become proficient on congas, timbales, guitar and piano before taking up trumpet and trombone for his scholasti
c musical career. After studying Jazz and Music Management at the California State University @ Sacramento, Mike made the move to Texas in 2008 to pursue a career in the Tejano music industry. Immediately immersing himself in the local music scene, Mike performed in many local bands before forming his own group. Mike Torres III & The Grooveland Chicano Band released an EP and a full length album which earned the group a nomination for “Best New Artist” at the 2012 Tejano Music Awards. Mike also had the honor of being part of the 2013 PBS special “Vamos Al Baile” as bass player for the world renowned accordionist, pianist, and record producer Joel Guzman and his band Conjuntazzo.

In January of 2014, Mike was tapped to go on tour with five time Grammy award winning Texas legend, Little Joe. Playing bass and providing backup vocals until the end of their 2017 tour, Mike was able to tour nationally and internationally with the Little Joe y La Familia, as well as record two full length albums on which he earned arranging credits in 2015 and 2017.

A proud endorsing artist of GK Bass Amps, Mike is also an in demand studio musician and has recently began producing projects for other artists. In December of 2016, Mike independently released an acoustic Christmas album, and in May of 2018 released the debut EP of his band LA•45.

I like to make the barrier to entry as small as possible by making sure you I customize each lesson to the student. I am the perfect teacher for someone who just wants to learn to play the guitar to have fun, join a band, improve soloing and improvisation, or learn the practical applications of theory without getting bogged down by the language.

If you want to learn guitar for the love of the instrument than I am excited to help you grow!

About Tyler

I am a huge fan of metal, rock (classic and modern), Blues, Jazz, and Fusion. I also have gigged in several country bands, so I can chicken pick some twang as well.
