I've been playing guitar for nearly 20 years, and I've worked with hundreds of students to improve their guitar skills. I've performed in ensembles, played for professional recordings, and have been part of live bands. I'll show you how to develop the skills you need to play and enjoy the guitar!

About Jared
I'm the most patient instructor you'll ever meet! Whether you're looking to learn to play an instrument you've always wanted to play, play some of your favorite songs, or just want to learn for fun, I'm here to help you.

I've been teaching in the Louisville area for nearly 8 years and have worked with over 125 clients for over 7,000 lessons. I'm fun, relaxed, and able to adjust to your particular needs. I have a rich background in music education and performance, having grown up with two professional musicians, performing in several prestigious music ensembles, and earning professional degrees in music performance and composition from the Wheaton Conservatory of Music. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, from 5-year-old beginners to advan
ced students who'd like fine tuning. The vast majority of my students have been beginners. I'm relaxed and laid back while encouraging you to reach your potential. Whether you're an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert in need of some fine tuning, I'll carefully evaluate your strengths and weakness and create a lesson plan suited to your individual learning style, interests and needs. We'll discuss where you'd like to go with music, and I'll help you get there! After 3 or 6 months with me, you'll learn the musical foundations of rhythm, ear training, posture, technique, music theory and performance, and a few of your favorite songs!

Sonoma, CA
View Full Profile

With six years of guitar playing and performing experience, Liz loves to share her knowledge of folk, reggae, rock, and pop style playing. She also loves to teach the theory behind the fretboard and how it relates to the Western scale.

About Liz
After graduating California Institute of the Arts with a multi-focus on several aspects of music including African dance, Indonesian gamelan, songwriting, recording, classical voice and piano, folk guitar, and more, Liz had the excellent opportunity to teach theater to a local musical theater summer youth program. All summer, she taught class sizes ranging from 10 to 26 students of the ages 5-10. Her initiative later led to being hired at this local community theater. Along with this theater teaching experience, she has been teaching piano, guitar, ukulele, flute & voice lessons for over 10 years. Her students have gone from knowing nothing about music to learning and performing entire pieces on their own as well as even auditioning & for agents and becoming signed artists in Los Angeles. Liz knows that it is her place in the world to tea
ch music & spread positivity through her own music and would love nothing more than make learning music a positive and fun experience for everyone.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach out of the Alfred's Piano course, but am open to trying out any music books you may already have in your home. I do expect my students to purchase the books they would like to learn out of and to have the material I have given them for homework ready, completed, and practiced by the time we have our weekly lesson. I recommend at least twenty to thirty minutes of practice every day, and will give rewards for having practiced well, and for performing well in our lessons. I would love it for my students to be clear on what they would like to learn, and I love using songs that the student enjoys to make his or her music learning process fun.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my home studio, I have a full size Cable-Nelson upright piano, as well as two ukuleles, and two guitars (one acoustic-electric and one electric).

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I travel, I bring my own instrument that the student is learning on so that I can demonstrate, as well as a music stand if necessary.

*** Specialties ***
Pop, folk, opera, musical theater, classical, rock, reggae

You will learn to play melodies: Mary Had A little lamb, Ode to Joy, etc. as well as chords to rhythm. If you have songs you wish to learn we can do that and if you want to learn to play guitar and sing that is possible. Any pop songs on the radio we can learn and have you playing for your friends.

About Andrew
I have loved music since I was a child. I began playing clarinet when I was 11 years old and slowly picked up new instruments like the saxophone, harmonica, guitar, ukulele, flutes, whistles, kazoo, and others. I enjoy any style of music and have a desire to learn as many instruments as possible. My line-up of new instruments to learn are: accordion, banjo, trombone, the cello.
I love to teach and share my passion for music with others. My hope to is make people into learners of music proficient in learning any instrument they wish.

Simply put, Andrew is the best. His genuine love and passion for all-things music was obvious the first day we met him. He is great with kids. He is flexible yet reliable. We love the fact that he tailors his lessons, homework, and incentives to the needs and interests of each individual student. We are confident that we could not find a better guitar instructor for our daughter.

In our lessons, we can cover anything you'd like (your enjoyment of guitar is my top priority), ranging from basic technique all the way to advanced fretboard maneuvers. I can teach you anything from simple strum patterns or fun classic riffs all the way to the technical mastery of great guitarists like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. I'm well versed in music theory and can give you insight on how and why ideas work and how they can easily apply to your playing (such as scales, arpeggios, etc.)

About Austin
Hello there, I'm Austin. I've been playing guitar since I was a kid. I've been performing live for the better part of the last decade, and have taken various college level music courses as well. In fact, I still study with a great jazz guitar teacher; Guitar is an instrument where there is always more to learn. I can help you learn anything from strumming along to a Bob Dylan song all the way through the ins and outs of the brilliant technique of Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai. I can also teach you music theory as it applies to the guitar; such as how to read music, build and name chords (and why they work), scales and arpeggios (and how to use them in your playing), as well as an understanding of rhythm and time (a shortcoming of many aspiring guitarists!). I look forward to working with you!

Charleston, SC

My passion is enriching the lives of individuals through music performance and teaching. From composition to performance mastery, there are always challenges and opportunities for growth.

I have been teaching for 15 years and am still learning from every student about how to be a better teacher. My focus is on the foundations of classical guitar playing. But it does not end there! Many of my students have gone on to university level playing as well as touring the world as rockers!

Contrary to common practice, the beginning of guitar should be viewed like the beginning of piano playing. There are fundamentals that need to be mastered in order to develop the skills to progress to whatever dreams a student aspires to achieve.

About Chadwick
I want to inspire students to become lifelong learners of the guitar and of themselves. Whether working with an advanced classical player or just a beginner on chords, the goal is to help them down the path of their musical journey. My studio is different from most in that I use national standards when it comes to proficiency on the instrument. I believe it is important for parents of students and adult learners to know that there is a much deeper level of learning and dedication at my studio than the norm.

I am a classically trained musician with a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Florida State University. With a total of 19 years of experience - 11 of those years as a member of the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra - I am capable of teaching multiple styles of music to all ages and proficiency levels. Also a multi-instrumentalist, I have the ability to teach other stringed instruments such as the viola, cello, double bass, guitar, mandolin, and ukulele.

About Toni
I am a professional Double Bass player with a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Florida State University. As a proficient multi-instrumentalist, I am able to teach all stringed instruments, such as the violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, mandolin, and ukulele. With experience coaching and mentoring students who have a passion for songwriting, it has helped them become effective, dynamic, and knowledgeable songwriters.

I teach strings to students of all different ages and proficiency levels. I am a classically trained musician with 19 years experience, with 11 of those years as a member of the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra. My competency and versatility as a musician has given me the opportunity to work with children in the public school systems, after school programs, recreational centers, local events, and statewide competitions a
nd conventions.

Every instrument has a unique timbre, so I teach students what their chosen instrument's role is and what it's specific sound is used for. I believe that "practice makes progress," so I encourage each student to practice consistently and efficiently. By applying foundational techniques during practice and performance, it will aid in their continual growth and progress as a musician.

Depending on the goals and preference of the student - no matter the instrument - I highly encourage each of my students to learn to read music/chord sheets, understand and maneuver their instruments fluidly, and challenge themselves to pursue music in any and every way they can.

I firmly believe that learning technique and theoretical knowledge is essential to learning any instrument and any style. Focused practice sessions and learning how to listen actively instead of passively will shape a well-rounded musician, and as the teacher, achieving this with every student is my goal and my passion.

I very much look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

"Music is the silence between the notes." ~ Claude Debussy

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!

I am a young, determined guitarist who has been playing for 10 years, with a focus on chords and rhythm. I have been a tutor, I am an Eagle Scout and am working towards a university degree, so my communication skills are well tailored for teaching. I know how to present information in an organized, structured fashion and will assess your personal goals to see how we can work together to reach them, be it a song, a riff, or the desire to move forward as a songwriter. The possibilities are only limited to what you want to know.

About Michael
Hello, my name is Michael Seward. I’m a young student who has spent a lot of my life learning and experimenting with food and music. Since a young age, I just couldn’t stop myself from pushing the envelope of what I could create in those arenas.

I’ve been learning and teaching guitar for 4 years. I want to be able to have my full attention on my students, knowing what they want to learn and far they want to get. Giving my students lessons and teaching them songs that they would like to learn. I can teach in and English and Spanish. So message me and we’ll see what we our music curriculum can reach.

About Javier
I am a teacher, a student, and a human that loves with a passion of playing guitar. I want to teach and learn from students. I went to Santa Barbara San Marcos High School and I was in band and the president of the guitar club of that school. I got to be one on one with those students and I was taught how to deal with some of those minor problems that guitarist have at the beginning. I will be attending Berkeley City College Online Degree

As a teacher I want to teach all that I know, I want my students to be better than me. That’s my goal. I can teach in English and Spanish as well for songs in those languages. I love to see people improve from knowing nothing from them to knowing a full song. If you put your heart and desire into it, you can achieve more than you think. My goal is for my students to know and perform outstandingly bett
er than I do.

As a student I had a lot of troubles at first. I didn’t have a teacher at first so I wasn’t sure of what to do. I started teaching myself and performing well and over a while it starting to pay off. In guitar club we had it once a week. Now it’s twice a week since I became president. I started to learn that I need to teach those students so that they don’t go through that frustration that I went through. As students, they have been teaching me as well and surprise me with what they have learn and trying to learn and I know that you as my student will do the same.

I’m human and we are all human. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone has problems. Always message me if you have problem while it may be the guitar or anything else just message me and let me know to see if I can help.

I want to see you all evolve and eventually grow into someone much bigger as a person and as a musician.

He provides cool songs for you to practice as you progress with your guitar skills and he'll help you with whatever you need help on; such as learning new chords, or chord progressions. He's patient so don't worry if you do not know much. I recommend Javier Salas to tutor any beginning or intermediate guitar player!
