Guitar instruction customized to the student with regard to:

age,
degree of dedication,
practice time available
skill level,
musical interests.

At the core, each student will master the instrument. All students will learn:

how music works and how to apply it to the guitar.

About Ronald
I am an experienced professional with a background in music performance, education, composition, theory and arranging.

*** Lesson Details ***
Few musicians or music students have identical goals, musical interests or physical size. So, It is NECESSARY to customize the course of study to meet student requirements. There are common issues for any serious pursuit of learning involving the guitar; right and left hand technique, fingerboard knowledge, chord knowledge, reading and interpretation.

However, to progress, it is also necessary for the student to practice daily.

I try to maintain a healthy balance between the focus on performance and technical issues.

It was obvious to me at my first lesson with Ron, that he is an experienced and top quality musician and teacher. I have enjoyed several lessons with him so far. He is patient, makes learning fun, great at conveying the material, and has set a learning pace that feels just right for me.

Clarksville, TN

My beginning guitar lessons are formulated to not only teach the guitar and how to play, but also how to learn to hear music and the patterns of music. Much like my piano teaching I teach the student the "hows" and the "whys" or music and the guitar.
They will learn strumming techniques, chording, chord patterns, scales, Accompaniment and stage presence. The student will be required to provide his or her own guitar.

About Gabriel
My name is Gabriel. I have been playing and teaching for over 25 years both piano and Voice. As a Music Major and Christian Education major at Johnson Bible College I not only learned the skills needed to be a musician but also how to teach what I had learned.

As a Student you will find that learning to play and sing can be fun and easy. I always make my lessons enjoyable and I add humor, games and other instruments to enhance your learning experience.

I am both a musician and song writer. I have a great time teaching and work great with both Children and adults. I love it when working with people and that "Light" comes on when they realize "I really learned something." I live for those moments.

I have worked with students of all levels. I even work with children with special needs. So no matter what you would like to
do with your music, play for enjoyment, compose music, sing, for church or professionally I can help you get there.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons I teach are fun and educational. No matter who you are I am able to teach you.
I do not teach traditional piano. Why? Because most people are unable to play this style due to issues with eye hand coordination. The Method I teach "Chord Percussion Style" teaches a strong foundation in piano basics backed by a Strong Music Theory base. I have yet to find anyone who has not been able to learn with this method.
For voice I teach natural voice as opposed to Head Voice. This allows the student to learn to sing in a solo or group setting. You will be amazed at the difference a few adjustments can make in your voice. So as you continue your lessons with us you will see constant improvement.
On top of Voice and Piano I can help you learn to write your own music. Using the theory that you use you will learn to start to piece music together.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard - Roland Weighted Keys
Amplifier
Bongos
Guitar

*** Specialties ***
I teach Chord Percussion Style which is based on the use of chords and strong piano fundamentals and mixed with in-depth Music Theory and percussion technique. Super Fun for all ages!

Students can expect my absolute best effort to help them grow with music and through music. They can expect to be studying with someone who will listen to them, be honest with them, and invest in them as a person.

About Berkeley
I have been living, working, and playing music in Nashville since 2008, and graduated from Belmont University with a Bachelor's Degree in Commercial Music. In addition to guitar lessons and theory tutoring, I also offer ear-training (sometimes known as aural skills). Having started out as a folk/blues player with no background in theory and then going on to study music at the university level, I approach private teaching seeking to balance the two worlds, while keeping in mind that love for what you do is the ultimate motivator. I therefore constantly do my best to assess each student's waxing or waning interest in the current material.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons tend to be laid-back, and include some discussion, instruction, review, and feedback. However, if there is one consistent element that all my lessons share, it's exp
osure. One goal will always be to leave the student with some music they've never heard before. Constant discovery is a surefire way to keep the love for music alive and healthy, and can even rekindle it.
Instructional and study materials will be based on subjects/techniques being taught, and could include The Real Book, materials from my own instructors (past and present), and any textbooks I've acquired while in music school.

*** Studio Equipment ***
guitars, keyboards, amps, etc. All the students needs to bring is his or her instrument.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar - I will bring a guitar and amp, and the student will need his or her own guitar and amp, if applicable

*** Specialties ***
electric blues, classic rock, modern country, etc.

Recently started taking lessons again, and Eric has been great so far. He is everything a guitar teacher should be...he tailors his teaching to help you reach what personal goals you want to achieve. He is also very supportive, and his feedback is always of the encouraging type. His knowledge of guitar,music, and theory is outstanding which helps him teach it to you at whatever level you feel comfortable at. Highly recommended.

I focus on musicality when I teach any instrument. With the guitar, that means keeping great rhythm, using rich chords and melodic solos, and playing with careful expressiveness.

We learn from the greats (Beatles, Police, Radiohead, etc) and learn to create and express from there.

About Colin
I'm an avid music fan familiar with rock (indie rock, classic rock, alternative), pop, funk, disco, and classical genres. Music has been my "thing" since the day I was born and I love connecting with people through their favorite music.

My lessons focus on empowering each student with the skills to play what they want to play.

If you want to have a good time playing great music, you've come to the right teacher!

*** Lesson Details ***
You and I work on simple exercises that help get you to the next level in your performance and then apply the principle taught to a piece of music you are familiar with. It's a great method that gets you playing what you want to play at the level you want to play it at.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All of the instruments that I teach (guitar, bass, upright bass) as well as recording gear (Pro Tools
, mics, synths, etc.)

*** Travel Equipment ***
Any instrument that I teach.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Upright Bass and Music Production (mixing, mastering, Pro Tools recording, beat sequencing)

Colin is an experienced music producer and very knowledgeable in the ins and outs of pro-tools. Our lessons were super helpful. Pro tools was very daunting to learn and he knew just how to break it down. I went in really not knowing much at all and with our time together I'm now confident to make my own recordings sound great!

About Calvin
Hello and welcome to my profile here on takelessons.com thanks for stopping by! My name is Calvin and I’ve been teaching students of all ages for more than 16 years now.
I started my personal music journey at 4 years old first learning piano and guitar and multiple other instruments from there. My father was my first music instructor which grounded me in the foundation and theory of music while at the same time knowing that ear training and learning how to play with other musicians was just as important. From there I had the privilege of learning jazz, blues, and many other styles from the late Hal Stesch at UNLV School of Music who played piano and organ for many great artists including Elvis, The Platters, Frank Sinatra, and many more. Currently my wife and lead Praise and worship 3 to 4 times weekly a two different church campuses an
d also perform every Saturday at a Branson style show in Liberty, Texas.
My approach to teaching music is to customize lessons to the student’s interests while still maintaining the essentials and foundations including music theory, scales, and reading music. I like to incorporate particular songs and genres of music that the student likes by providing customized tracks with their particular instrument taken out so that feel a sense of accomplishment and get the practice of playing along with other musicians which benefits in the ear training process. I look forward to meeting and "jamming" with you soon!

Picking up the acoustic guitar for the first time? Or pick up the acoustic guitar for the first time...in a long time? No problem, let's get you stringed up and back into the game. Each lesson is simple and effective, guaranteed to get your fingers in shape and able to reach those frets you had never reached before--sounds a little bit like the intro narrative to Star Trek...?

About Ben
EDUCATION

I graduated from California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) with a B.A. in Public Administration (what does that have to do with the Flamenco guitar?); prior to that degree, I received an A.A. in Political Science (again, what does that have to do with Flamenco guitar?). Currently I am in the process of completing my M.P.A. at CSUF (again…?). The answer to the aforementioned question is that, I enjoy politics and government work—it’s my profession. Nonetheless, I enjoy Flamenco most of all, and I want you to enjoy it too! ¡Vamonos!

EXPERIENCE

The guitar is a wonderful instrument, which I began playing at the age of six. I began my studies with the classical guitar for the first 15 years of playing; and for these past 15 years I have studied the flamenco guitar—playing various concerts, events, and giving professional
instruction.

My experience as a guitarist in Southern California has led me to explore different genres of music, playing for various musical groups ranging from surf rock, concert band, and jazz. As a co-founding member of the band, Ballistico, we opened up for acts such as Dick Dale and the Del Tones, the Grandmothers of Invention (featuring members of Frank Zappa’s original band, “Mothers of Invention”), Avenged Sevenfold, and many others.

EXPERTISE

Having received first hand instruction from the some of the most sough-after professional Flamenco guitarists living and working in Spain (and touring internationally), I offer each of my students an unrivaled degree of authenticity in technique, tone, and style.

LEARNING MATERIALS

Each lesson includes tablature and audio recordings of the material that we will have gone over together. It is completely normal that only a day or two after a lesson—or even a few hours afterwards—the mind can (and will) quickly forget the material. Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered. By having the accompanying written and audio material with you after each lesson, you will be well-prepared for a successful next lesson!
