Sergio is very understanding when needing to reschedule. He definitely takes the time to listen to your needs and to figure out the best way to help you reach your goal. I'm definitely glad I was connected to him and would definitely recommend him to anyone.

In need of specific exercises to strengthen my voice, increase my range, and improve my tone and interval accuracy, I took a chance on takelessons.com for the first time and found Sergio S. in Mt. Juliet TN, who immediately began to help me with all of my goals. Lessons are efficient and effective because Sergio has a plan, knows how to teach the plan, and then knows how to make sure that I understand how to eliminate bad habits and replace them with correct singing and breathing techniques. In less than five lessons, I've already begun to see significant improvement in my voice.

Took 5 lessons with Sergio to get me over a playing hump. During each lesson, we worked on a specific area. Toward the end, we went over practice routine, recorded it and he supplied source material for reference. This helped me maintain rhythm, improve chord changes, and to generally have a better grasp of theory (it really helps for speedy progress in my opinion).

By any nature, you should always practice on your own as well, but he will guide you to what needs to be done to further your ambition of playing guitar, no matter the age (i'm 35).

About P.G.
I have been playing guitar, writing songs and studying music for over 20 years. I graduated from Boston College with a degree in Music composition and theory. I am also a recording engineer and write music for TV, film and advertising. I love to teach and work with students who want to learn. Basically, I like to make music and have fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I start working with new students by setting goals. My philosophy is to have fun and make music. Ultimately, my goal is for the student to be able to "jam" with other musicians. I picked up the guitar at age thirteen because I was inspired by Nirvana. I was quickly turned on to Jimi Hendrix, which eventually led to me discovering jazz, classical music, songwriting and eventually bluegrass. Music is a vast world and I believe in teaching songs that the student wants to play. So
I start by working on songs that are of interest to each individual student.

*** Home Equipment ***
Lessons are taught in my home. Seating for parents available. No pets. Bass and electric guitar amplifiers are provided as well as cables.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a guitar tuner and learning materials (i.e. music sheets and learning material). I expect the student to have a guitar, bass, banjo or ukulele to play. I also advise an amplifier for electric guitar students. I am able to bring a small practice amplifier to lessons at student location.

*** Specialties ***
On Guitar: Acoustic & Electric guitar, Rock n' Roll, Blues, Jazz, Improvisation, Merle Travis chicken pickin', slide guitar and music theory. In the world of audio recording, I am well versed in Logic Pro X. I operate Logic in my personal studio to write and record music for TV, film and advertising.

I found P.G. to be a very nice and personable teacher who wants to help you meet your goals. He is a very talented yet humble individual. I enjoyed our time together getting to know each other and discussing my goals. I feel he will make me a much better banjo player. I like his attitude and teaching methods. I look forward to many more lessons. By the way I am driving almost two and a half hours each way for my lessons. I am very serious in my quest to be a better banjo player and I feel I have found someone who will help me achieve my goal. Thanks

Outstanding Guitar Teacher

I've been wanting to learn to play the guitar for a long time and finally decided to go for it. I chose P.G.B based on his extensive music background and am glad I did. He's energetic, easy going, adjusts to your likes and learning style, provides excellent feedback, and motivates you be excited about learning the guitar. I've easily memorized a handful of chords and several songs already after only two lessons and we were even jamming in the second lesson. Can't wait to see how I'm playing in a month or two from now. I highly recommend him if you're wanting to learn guitar, he's makes it easy and a lot of fun. .

About Mikayla
I started my formal music education at just three years old. That early education was invaluable in training my musical ear, and I now have excellent pitch. I started my extensive training in vocal performance at the age of 8, and have been trained in classical, opera, and musical theater in both legit and belt/mix. I have performed in over 30 musical theater productions and two operatic productions. Some of my favorite credits include La Carlotta (Phantom of the Opera), Eliza (My Fair Lady), Mrs. Potts and The Wardrobe (Beauty and the Beast), The Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute), and Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte).

As a youth, I performed with the Utah Children’s Choir and Pleasant Grove Jr. High’s choir. I then went on to perform with the award-winning Pleasant Grove Chamber Choir while in High School, and the BYU Women’s Chorus in
college. I competed in NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) from 2008-2014 and placed each year in both Classical and Musical Theater Legit. In 2013, I competed in the Classical Singer Competition in Boston and placed in the top 10 in the nation. In 2011, I was asked to perform in the Tour of American Young Artists to China. I performed in Beijing, as well as several outlying Chinese cities.

As well as singing, I am an accomplished flutist, and I enjoy playing the piano. I love to draw, sew and craft during my free time. I played Volleyball in high school, was on the swim team, and I absolutely love horseback riding.

I have an outgoing personality, and am excellent at helping others feel comfortable. It is my goal to not only help you learn to sing, but also to feel comfortable performing for others. I absolutely love singing and performing myself, and I am excited to help you reach your musical potential!

I sang in choirs in Jr High and High School but never had vocal lessons one-on-one. I wanted to try something new and something that I enjoy. Mikayla has made my first vocal lessons a great experience! She takes the lessons at a nice pace. It's a good balance of not overwhelming you but at the same time pushing you to improve. The lessons have been really fun and instructive.

the "NEW YORK GUITAR GURU" -- Village Voice

I have been teaching one 12-hour day a week as available since I was a music student at Syracuse University greater than 30 years ago. I was the music school's referral instructor for non-guitar majors.

I have greater than forty gold & platinum artist live and recording credits that range from Bo Diddley, to Joe Cocker to Ringo in a variety of genres.

I have played every major venue in United States from Madison Square to the Hollywood Bowl as the guitarist or music director for the headliner (that means I didn't "share the stage" as an opening act playing for free)

There are videos you can purchase at Guitar or Sam Ash of my last legit tour.

Here is some more information:

4 years of traditional music school

Doctorate

I s
tudied with Sal Salvador, Jack Wilkins, and learned a lot from watching my High School classmate Elliott Fisk (the last guitarist to study with Andres Segovia).

I did what was known as the "special studies program" at Berklee College of Music.

I have taught as a professor when available at 12 colleges and universities including University of California at Irvine, Fullerton College, Volunteer State Community College, Syracuse University, and the State University of New York (multiple schools). I was the faculty chairperson of the music industry program at SAE in Nashville.

I teach rock, jazz, classical, acoustic, and blues. I also teach traditional and contemporary music theory.

About Rebekah
It is always a cool thing when an artist who has been in the music business for a long time is suddenly “discovered.” In the bluegrass world, this is hopefully about to happen to Rebekah Long who, through her many talents, is no stranger to some of the most successful folks in the genre.

Long grew up in Lincolnton, Georgia near the famous musical kinfolk The Lewis Family and spent time touring and playing upright bass with Little Roy Lewis and Lizzy Long, Rebekah’s twin sister. She also played bass in Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike.

Rebekah was one of the first students to graduate from the Glenville State College Bluegrass Certificate Program after it was created in 2002. With a BA in Bluegrass Music and a BA in Music Education under her belt, Long immersed herself in the bluegrass business working as a recording engineer, graphic design
er, video editor while also playing in various bands.

Collaborating closely with the legendary songwriter Dixie Hall, the late wife of Country Music Hall of Famer Tom T. Hall, Long was the recording engineer and graphic designer for the acclaimed “Daughters of Bluegrass” box set, also adding bass, guitar and vocals to the project.
