Jill H. Winter Springs, FL

Learning to play the guitar includes tuning, technique, theory and the willingness to practice. Beginning students learn to play treble clef musical notation, rhythm and chords. As the student advances, the music becomes more intricate and tablature is introduced as a form of reading guitar music. As the student feels comfortable, the guitar solo is introduced. The student will be introduced to key signatures and learn the primary chords for each key.

About Jill

Jill holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and has master's work in choral music. For many years she has taught private and group music lessons to all ages and many varying styles of singing and instrumental music. Her lessons are unlike the ones she remembers from childhood; Jill's lessons are full of creativity, fun and excitement. It is amazing how students improve with each lesson. Jill brings more than just technique to the studio, she strives to find the best in each student and then concentrates on improving each individual's strengths and then delves into ways to correct the weaknesses.

Jill is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and creative in teaching, good at communicating her musical ideas with children. My son progressed a lot under her instruction. We really hate to say goodbye to her because we have to leave America. Her classes are part of our best memories here.

Nate C. Oviedo, FL

With guitar, I cover all the basics: chords, scales, reading tab or standard notation (or both), and playing that song you wished you knew how to play.

My method book is flexible, and I generally incorporate as many known songs as possible to encourage students' desire to practice.

Once the basics are down, we can move on to advanced techniques like harmonics, tapping, alternate tunings, and more. I can also help students trying to learn advance instruments like 7 or 8 string guitars.

I have an extensive background in theory and use it to help students understand the basics of songwriting as well as the basics of improvising lead lines over chords another guitarist is playing.

About Nate

I've been teaching private lessons for over a decade now. First I taught lessons as a self-employed college student, and then my during graduate studies I worked through a music academy in Dallas. I've been playing piano for over 20 years and guitar and drums for 15. I've been in various bands, personally recorded several albums of my own compositions, and have taught students from ages 7-17 consistently. I teach part time as a high school teacher in the area and I enjoy helping young people learn, whether it's guitar, piano, drums, or even psychology *** Lesson Details *** I'm very laid back when it comes to lessons, but I do expect students to spend at least 90 minutes weekly practicing so our lessons will be productive. I generally use either Alfred or Suzuki for piano lessons, and

Eric L. Oviedo, FL

About Eric

Eric comes from a family of musicians. He began guitar lessons at age five as the Beatles were invading the American music scene. Growing up in New Jersey, Eric performed in rock bands until becoming interested in classical guitar. With New York City only a short bus ride away, he spent as much time as possible in the city, studying guitar with Russian born Classical Guitarist, Dr. Alexander Bellow, and Jazz Legend "Bucky" Pizzarelli. During this time he attended recitals of such notables as Andre Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams. Being immersed in this musical scene inspired him to make music his life. Eric earned a degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford, where he studied under the direction of guitar pedagogue, ...

I've had a great experience as Eric's student. He is highly knowledgeable as a guitar teacher and I have loved learning classical technique from him. And I'm kind of picky, since I already have a degree in music and am also a music teacher! He has really helped me broaden my skills as a guitarist and I can highly recommend him as a teacher for all kinds of guitar styles.

Eric is a very good teacher. I have no experience in music at all and his instruction offered a nice mix of basic music knowledge and uke specific teaching. In a short time he showed me a variety of playing techniques for the uke that gives me a lot to strive for while offering exercises and instruction for me to work on that will help me steadily improve.

Christian L. Orlando, FL

My main focus throughout my career can be broken down into 3 categories:

-Technique
-Knowledge of the fretboard
-Chord and Scale knowledge

I guarantee that if you are comfortable with these 3 areas, you will be able to play whatever you want, any style, any genre. Of course once the basics are finished we can then move into the specifics of your chosen style or chosen combination of styles. For example:

-Jazz-
We would start to focus more on larger chord voicings as well as a more complex scale language. Heavy emphasis on improvising

-Blues-
Less of an emphasis on chords and more on soloing, specifically articulation techniques like bending, sliding, vibrato, legato (hammer ons/pull offs), basically all of the things that will make you sound "bluesy"

-Singer/Songwriter-
Less emphasis on lead playing and more on keys, chord voicing, and chord progressions. Also song structure and melodic note choice.

-Metal-
Heavy emphasis on techniques such as hybrid ...

About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 26 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces for small art clubs and events. Alongside gigging, I also began teaching guitar, ear training, and music theory when I turned 18 and have been teaching full time ever since. During that time I also spent 4 years in music school for classical guitar. Currently I spend my time teaching, recording, and performing various styles including rock, jazz, pop, hip-hop, musical theater, metal, and country. Throughout the 8 years I have been an instructor I believe I have refined my teaching style to

Christian is a career guitar performer and instructor. He is fluid on the fretboard and the blackboard. Not only is he knowledgeable about technique and composition but his acumen of contemporary guitar history is comprehensive, I can't believe I got so lucky to have chosen Christian first round on TakeLessons by simply reading his bio. He has instilled in me the desire to become a better player and increased my enjoyment of the instrument tenfold. Thanks Christian!
