Students learn the basics through professional ability to play their instrument. Knowledge of what they are playing is just as important as what they are playing. I give them that knowledge and ability.

*** Lesson Details ***
Damien is a very patient and moderately, laid back teacher. He will teach what you want to learn, yet give you suggestions on other avenues to approach. Basics lead to complete knowledge of any subject. S
tarting from the beginning of what a student knows and moving forward step by step will only lead to perfection in their lessons. Having fun doing this, is the only way to keep a student focused and progressing. Enjoyment is the number one focus of Damien's lessons. If a student isn't enjoying and having fun with their lessons then they will not progress.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect the student to provide their own guitar (if necessary) and a notebook
I have private parking for my students, so they don't have to worry about parking, ever !
*** Specialties ***
I have been taught, on a college level, of classical, jazz, ethnic musics. I specialize in guitar, theory, composition.

Damien is extremely professional and does an excellent job explaining the fundamentals. As Albert Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." Damien has a way of explaining concepts so they are easily understood and retained, even for more complex subjects.

Whether you're learning to play and sing around the campfire, or want to be the nest biggest thing in music, learning the guitar is fun as well as challenging. Chords, note reading, modern tablature and easy songs are included in my introductory lessons. I teach song writing to intermediate students.

About Michele
I have been teaching strings, piano, harp and drums since 1999. Many of my students have studied with me for years and developed a lifelong love of music. Some have gone on to be professionals.

I have been tutoring music therapy students as well as teaching music composition for seven years.

I strive to help students achieve their musical goals however I can, but I do not tolerate laziness or half-hearted attempts.

Music can be a tool and thus, summers are dedicated to fun, composition and learning to record.

I've taken a couple of lessons from Trevor so far and they have been awesome. I've taken lessons from about 7 or 8 instructors in my lifetime and he is definitely one of, if not the best.
The thing that makes Trevor stand out to me is that he took the time to get to know what I wanted to learn and to figure out how I like to learn. He comes prepared to the lessons with material, answers any questions I have during the week by email and has worked with me to develop a specific education plan to meet my goals.
I suggest taking a trial lesson with this guy to see if you're on the same page. I am definitely not going anywhere else while I live in Austin.

Hello, my name is William. Thank you for taking the time to read about what I have to offer you. Are you interested in learning to play the music you love, using techniques that are actually healthy for your hands?

My instruction involves healthy, ergonomically sound, efficient, time-tested playing techniques combined with customized lesson plans, including original instructional materials, established texts, theoretical education, and material chosen by the student.

I offer training for acoustic as well as electric (steel and/or nylon string) instruments and provide instruction in popular music styles as well as formal classical.

Quality practice coaching will make a profound difference in your ability to learn and play music effectively, but it takes time. That's why I offer full hour lessons at a reasonable price ($49). Practice well and you will play well.

About me: I earned my Degree in Music Education from Shenandoah Conservatory where I studied Classical ...

About William
I am a professional guitar instructor. I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and graduated with High Honors. My formal training includes classical guitar performance, jazz guitar and improvisation, music theory and arranging, psychology, piano, violin, recording, and much more.

With over 25 years of teaching experience and well over 30 years of experience playing music, I have enjoyed working with students as well as other musicians with broadly diverse backgrounds. I have performed solo, played in rock bands, blues and jazz combos, duos, trios, and classical guitar quartets as well as large guitar ensembles.

Students currently studying with me include young through older adult and retirement age students with performance goals ranging from the private, personal enjoyment of playing music, to professional and semi-profess
ional aspirations.

I strive to provide a friendly, comfortable learning environment my students can thrive in. I won't pressure you to play in recitals in order to increase my studio size, but I will greatly encourage you to play an active role in customizing your own individual curriculum. As soon as you have the skills to do so, you should be learning to play the music you love.

Regardless of what your musical goals are, I would love to help you learn the skills you need to reach them. Thank you so much for your time.

I've been studying classical guitar with William (at his location) for almost 3 months now. Initially, he helped me find an instrument that would meet my needs and taught me how to care for it. I'd call him a connoisseur of classical acoustic guitars! He know how they should sound and has valuable guidance to provide for beginning guitarists like me who may not be as able to see or hear the differences. I'm glad I got his advice before making a commitment / investment on a particular instrument.

I am 46 and have a musical background (I already play both piano and trombone). William has very effectively adapted his teaching to fit with the skills I already have. In some cases that means speeding up and in other cases going back to basics to make sure I have the fundamentals down.

His knowledge of music and musical instruments enables him to very effectively describe to experienced musicians how the guitar is different from what they are used to and what they'll need to pay attention to.

William has been very focused on the details of correct technique, preferring to slow down and work specific things rather than moving on or cutting corners for the sake of getting through the method materials. If you want to learn how to play completely, correctly, efficiently and without hurting yourself William is your teacher.

One of the things I appreciate the most is William's patience. He's a stickler for correct technique so he doesn't let errors slide, but he corrects in a way that is both helpful and encouraging. There's no bit of guidance that he's given me that, when I put it into practice, doesn't dramatically help my progress. I've learned in a very short time to really listen to him. He knows what he's talking about.

I can wholeheartedly recommend William to anyone wanting to learn to play guitar. He's one of the best music instructors I've ever had!

I'm happy to answer anyone's questions on my experiences with William or this review.

I've been a self taught student via the internet for a year and a half and I recently moved to Phoenix and decided to take a stab at taking lessons. I've been taking lessons with William for one month and I can honestly say, I've learn more in my first lesson then I've learned the year and half I've been playing on my own. I was blown away with his patience, knowledge, and passion for teaching guitar.

William is definitely worth more then what take lesson charges. His lessons has super exceeded by expectation. I highly recommend taking lessons with him, there so much information he teaches regarding reading music, the proper way to hold the guitar, proper technique, learning scales, the proper way to hold a pick and proper equipment selection base on your style.

I can go on and on, but the bottom line is choosing William as a teacher will be an investment with your guitar playing and I promise you will not be disappointed.

In my 10 years of teaching experience, I have learned that my passion for teaching rivals my passion for learning and playing. From day one, my students are able to come home playing music while learning essential technique. Everyone has a unique learning style, and it’s my duty to find out what that is and adapt my lessons accordingly. Contact me today to learn how I can help you achieve your academic goals.
Lessons should be FUN, ENGAGING, and about YOU! In my approach we will focus on your goals and help you become the musician you want to be. All experience levels are welcome. It's never too early or too late to enjoy the art of music!

About William
Hey! Welcome to my page future student!

My name is Will. I have been playing guitar for well over 15 years. I've always been a big metal player at heart. When I began my journey with music, I struggled at first and honesty, did not like guitar. WHAT!? It wasn't FUN to take lessons for me. It wasn't until I found my long-term teacher, and still good friend today. Going from frustration to inspiration was a big eye-opener for me into the world of teaching. All it took was one passionate teacher to change literally my entire life. That kind of privilege is something that has driven my career to this day.

To tell you a bit about my experience: I have played in multiple rock and metal bands and have toured the United States multiple times. I have written full length albums and have appeared on a variety of radio stations, websites, strea
ming channels etc. Outside of the rock world, I have also played acoustic and classical guitar for weddings and various promotional gigs, worship bands, and cover bands.

I have studied at college for jazz and classical guitar and have plenty of experience in both reading music and understanding music theory. While it depends on each student's goals, we can go as deep down the rabbit hole for theory as you'd like!

My topics cover a wide range: technique, style, composition, theory, song-learning, reading, improvisation, fundamentals, rhythm, lead mechanics, recording etc.

If you aren't sure on what you want to learn or are looking for the right teacher for your child, I have years of experience working with children and creating lesson plans from the ground up for each student.

I look forward to meeting you and watching you grow as a musician. Most importantly, I can't wait to have some fun playing music together!

About Pascal
Pascal was trained as a classical guitarist at the "Ecole Normal de Musique de Paris" in France. He has always been driven by different musical styles. In the late 1980's Pascal was the co-founder of the "Trio Français de Guitare," with which he played music from 20th century French composers for several years throughout Europe but a focal dystonia prevented him to pursue a professional carrier as a classical guitarist.
He then obtained a scholarship at the «  Maitrise Baroque de Versailles » for a year where he learned Choral and Orchestral direction.
In the late 1990's he founded the Progressive Rock band "Saens" with whom he made 3 albums produced in Italy and UK.

Songwriter, singer, classical guitarist and bass player, Pascal always had a soft spot for cinema and more precisely B movies. When he learned that the musical 'The brain that wouldn't die" was being adapted in Charleston in 2016 / 2017, he jumped on it and was selected to be the creature
