Books. Students must have their own instrument (keyboards are acceptable for taking piano lessons). I always council students on brand, quality of instrument they are purchasing before they buy it.

*** Specialties *** I have been a public school music educator for over 28 years, have taught private music lessons for over 30 years. I have taught band, orchestra, and choir which enables me to teach many instruments and voice. I also have been a language and reading tutor for over 6 years and have worked with students with special needs for over 10 years. I studied classical guitar with master guitarist, Christopher Parkening, at Montana State University where I graduated with a B.M.E. I also did graduate work at MSU in composition. I am completing a Masters Degree in Teacher Leadership currently at Gran

I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.

Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

About Timothy
I draw on my experience, as a professional musician of 25 years, in my teaching of others. This experience includes -
Church music; both as a soloist and as a music director.
Touring musician; stage presence, improvisation, sound.
Carnival Cruise Lines staff musician; '99 -2000

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that your interest in the instrument from the "get-go" is what makes the lessons seem to fly by. As you learn, this interest only gets stronger. It is my responsibility as the teacher to make sure your time spent with me is time spent where knowledge is TRANSFERRED to you and not DISPLAYED to you. There will be responsibilities for you as the student, as this is necessary in order for you to get intimately acquainted with your instrument. But my style of teaching is simple & laid back. I feel the need that learning be enjoyable.
..as we both learn together and as you get to the place that you want to be as a musician!...at your pace!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my personal instrument. The student must provide instrument he / she wishes to learn on.

I can teach all levels and many styles. I make it easy for you to learn at your own pace so you can achieve your goals and have fun playing music.

About Thomas
Tom has a music degree focused in guitar performance and a combined professional teaching and performance career that spans over twenty years.

Tom began teaching in 1994 and still practices today instructing students of all ages on guitar and bass techniques, as well as music theory.

Tom is very laid back and embraces working at the pace that each of his students feels most comfortable. Lessons are about the student’s ambitions. If it is learning their favorite songs or a deep dive into music theory, jazz improvisation or songwriting it can be covered in strides that seem fit to the student. Books can be used for guidance and a custom lesson plan created that will fit specific criteria desired to be achieved by the student. Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it!!

Mandolin has become a more popular style of playing lately and not just used in Bluegrass. It is a great instrument to play for the folk sound of today.

About Scott
Scott has been teaching music for over 30 years. His method has evolved over time to meet the demands of changing musical styles and he has developed plenty of material to help students achieve their musical goals. His ambitions for each student are simple- he wants them to enjoy music and experience a sense of accomplishment from the learning process. In short, Scott works to make lessons fun and educational! Most beginning pupils will learn to play a song in the first couple of lessons. Handouts and music tracks are used to enhance the lessons.

Everyone is unique in how and what they want to learn. Scott uses positive encouragement to teach what is needed for the next step with the instrument. Students learn technique for dexterity, songs for the ear and theory so they understand the why's in music.

His training started at GIT (
Guitar Institute of Technology) in Hollywood where he gleaned 30+ yrs. of information from world renowned guitarists and musicians. Scott went on to graduate from Belmont University with honors in Composition and Arranging. Playing in Rock, R&B, Country, Classical and Jazz original and cover bands has enhanced his skills and made him a well rounded musician. He has the ability to teach these styles and make a living playing them.

Scott teaches all levels of students from beginner to advanced as well as the "signed artist" who have recording deals and need a little extra coaching. He has taught well known musician's family members and many of Scott's former students have gone on to make a career of their own in music as teachers, performers or composers.

"I enjoy music so much that it has always been a pleasure to pass on the knowledge of playing music."

I took weekly electric guitar lessons with Scott from 2004 to 2012. He is without a doubt an extremely talented, enthusiastic, and compassionate teacher. Whether he was helping me learn basic chords or teaching me complicated songs, Scott never wavered in his dedication to teaching. Over the eight years as his student, Scott gave constructive criticism in a courteous manner. He was on time, inquisitive about the songs and music I was listening to, and ended lesson with new material for me to practice. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to any aspiring guitar student.

I grew up in North Carolina, around bluegrass and Old Time music. I started playing mandolin as a teen and studied Irish mandolin in College for 4 years. I play bluegrass/Old Time and Irish mandolin and am comfortable teaching both. I also play pop style mandolin. I teach basic music theory with mandolin lessons, also fingering techniques, tunings, chords, and styles. I love to teach mandolin students tunes, so they can understand how mandolin works when played alone or with others. I love folk music, and I would love to share that love with students.

About Connor
I'm a film composer by trade, but I love teaching as well. I love sharing my passion for music with others. I have a BM from Appalachian State University in piano performance and music theory/composition. I also have an MFA in music composition for the screen from Columbia College Chicago. I studied abroad in Ireland for a summer and learned traditional Irish music. I've been playing piano and composing since I was a young child, and picked up folk instruments along the way. Folk music has been a constant source of joy in my life, and I am continually learning more about it. Music is what gets me out of bed in the morning!

Connor is an excellent teacher. I worked with her via Skype for over a year. I played accordion as a child and wanted to get back into it as an adult. She helped me build my confidence and my proficiency around playing the accordion. She went through a lesson book that I purchased on my own previously. She arranged music for me so I could play more contemporary songs that my 3yo daughter would recognize. She worked with my schedule. She has a lovely personality. She is very encouraging. She is amazingly talented in music. And I couldn't recommend a better teacher. I wish you all the best, Connor! Thank you for everything!

Patrick is a great fiddle teacher. He is a world-class musician, but he is able to meet me at my level - a rusty classical violinist. He is very encouraging and positive. He's quite knowledgeable about a very broad range of fiddle music. I highly recommend him.

While the mandolin isn’t my first instrument, it quickly became my favorite and most proficient. Take up lessons with me, and you can jump into bluegrass, country, folk, classical, jazz or even rock tunes. Strumming & picking both play a significant roll in playing Mando, and you’ll see quick results from my lesson plans!

About Lucas
I’ve been playing music since 2001, and performing in bands since 2010. My students LOVE lesson night. The key is meeting students where they are and listening to them; a concept that gets overlooked. Parent feedback has been amazing, and watching the student’s progress has been priceless.

Whether you’re taking mandolin, guitar, banjo, or whatever instrument you enjoy, you’ll find lessons with me to be both enjoyable and educational. My approach involves both A. Learning Songs (the what) and B. Music Theory (the why); an important balance. I look forward to watching you fall in love with your instrument :)

HI there! I have been teaching music for 5 years, and am deeply passionate about sharing music with others! I will help you learn how to use music as a tool of expression, tailored to each unique students wants and needs, while building solid technique and knowledge of music theory, and learning a wide repertoire. I am a current Berklee College of Music student, mandolinist, guitarist, pianist, vocalist and songwriter, and have extensive knowledge of music theory, ear training, jazz, funk, brazilian choro, pop, blues, contemporary bluegrass, folk and classical music. I have worked as an assistant teacher for elementary and middle school students and at Berklee’s Global String Intensive, developed a curriculum and taught private lessons on my own, I am studying Music Education and I run the Berklee Mandolin Orchestra. In addition I have written, crowd funded and recorded two records of my own (produced by Grammy Nominee Neilson Hubbard) and shared the stage with Chris Thile, Amos Lee,

About Oliver
I absolutely love teaching music and believe it one of the most powerful tools of expression. I work to give my students the tools to express themselves, which include repertoire, technique, knowledge of music theory and musicality. I also have extensive experience with the music industry i.e. booking tours, working with publicists, auditioning and more. I am a current Berklee College of Music student, mandolinist, guitairst, pianist, vocalist and songwriter, and have extensive knowledge of music theory, ear training, jazz, funk, brazilian choro, pop, blues, contemporary bluegrass, folk and classical music. I have worked as an assistant teacher for elementary and middle school students and at Berklee’s Global String Intensive, developed a curriculum and taught private lessons on my own, my major at Berklee is Professional Music with focus
es in Music Education and Songwriting and I currently run the Berklee Mandolin Orchestra. In addition I have written, crowd funded and recorded two records of my own (Produced by Grammy - Nominee Neilson Hubbard) and shared the stage with Chris Thile, Amos Lee, Tim O’Brien, Mary Gauthier, Langhorne Slim, Sierra Hull, Elephant Revival, Aoife O’Donovan, and David Grisman.
I love teaching and have extensive experience adapting to students’ individual needs, and keeping it fun and engaging for them. As a teacher I care just as much about my students’ wellbeing as I do their musical skills, because I believe the two are intertwined. As a person with marginalized identities, I know how important it is to see one’s identity reflected back in music and art. My goal is to be a safe space and provide the tools so that students can find their voice, both musically and personally.
