Jordan was very helpful right from the start. He listened to me on where I am at and where I want to be. He showed me a few things that we will work towards and then helped me understand my instrument much better. Gave me some fun new things to practice before the next lesson. If you're looking for a lesson that is interactive and fun I recommend Jordan and the online thing is supper easy and handy. I don't think it could have gone any better. The lesson was 45 minutes and it felt like 10.
Dave
Jordan is excellent & very patient.
Max
Jordan is a fantastic teacher! He expertly and patiently guided my young son from essentially 0 to reading notes and playing them on the guitar in about half an hour. He is clearly an experienced musician who loves to teach. We are looking forward to the next lesson.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I started teaching myself guitar when I was 10. Later, in high-school, my teacher frustrated with my lack of practicing came up with an idea to light a fire under me. They suggested I teach a younger classmate. Not only did I finally start practicing, but I fell in love with teaching as well. Thanks to that, I have played over 1,000 shows, both solo and as an auxiliary musician for other touring acts. I performed on over 30 albums and have composed for radio, television, and internet video series, including sharing the stage with members of the 10,000 Maniacs. I've been featured in The New York Times, on the CBS Evening News, and on NPR.

I have over 6 years of experience teaching private lessons in addition to teaching seminars on songwriting and music business at Infinity Visual and Performing Arts and SUNY JCC.

While each student is different, I start them on the Mel Bay or Essential Elements books. From there we will cover a variety of genres from classical, jazz, rock and

I often incorporate beginner guitar, piano, music theory, and ear training into my voice lessons. Many of my voice and songwriting students aim to learn how to accompany themselves, and a basic understanding of chords helps tremendously with pitch and being able to sing in tune.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Phil L. has been teaching students of all ages and styles since 1990. Phil welcomes students five-years-old and up to study with him. Phil's philosophy is not a "one size fits all" approach. Working with various types of students over the years, Mr. L. has learned that lessons must be tailored to fit a students' needs, desires and learning ability. As one of his students, Phil will be patient and kind while he is getting to know you and your learning style, firm, but not disparaging when he thinks that you should practice more. Beginning students will be taught the fundamentals of playing the guitar and basic musical concepts. Students will know exactly what to practice, the frequency and the duration. Phil has a Bachelor of Music Degree from Ball State University, and has taught at Illinois and Indiana Universities.

About Philip

Phil L. began his studies of the guitar at age 13. After just two-years of study, he auditioned and was accepted into the Shortridge School of Performing Arts. As a student there, he was introduced to the classical guitar, music theory, music history, sight-singing, and the keyboard. He performed

Becky
Our son loves working with Phil! He has been accommodating, communicative, and engaging throughout our experience!
Katy
My son has taken guitar from Phil for 4 years - first, in-person, and now online during COVID. Phil has made the transition seamless, and has remained flexible to meet any needs we’ve had. He is a low-pressure, easy-going teacher, and always finds music that my son thinks is cool to work on. My son backs away from any activity where he feels pressured to compete, so Phil has met him where he is and lets him be in control of the pace. Phil’s style has ensured that guitar will be a lifelong pastime for my son!
Doug
I retired from 25 years in the Air Force and decided to take up my life-long ambition to play the guitar. Phil showed me rock, blues, classical, and fingerstyle techniques. If you want to play it, Phil can teach it. I thoroughly enjoyed our lessons every week.

About Rachel

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice

Joris
Wit's understanding and non-dogmatic teaching style made classes high-quality and stress-free. Remote instruction was deeply engaging, which I wasn't expecting as someone who is used to in-person music classes. I definitely learned more than I have in any other guitar class.

I especially appreciated that class felt like a discussion rather than a recital. Instead of following one method or theme, I was encouraged to completely shift our attention at any time if there was anything I was curious about.

Wit presents difficult ideas with enough context that I, having a limited understanding of theory, felt able to keep up and incorporate higher-level concepts into my writing/playing.

Can't recommend Wit's classes enough!
Bianca
Prawit is such an incredible teacher - he structures the lessons to your specific goals, makes sure you understand everything before you move on, and makes it fun!
I love the structure he provides, and also the fact that he makes sure to check in as you are progressing. 👏🏼 I highly recommend him as a teacher
Ruby
I have been Prawit's student for several years in both in-home lessons and online. He is an amazing teacher! Prawit really takes the time to understand what I want to learn, and shows me how to achieve those goals. He is extremely clear, patient, and supportive. He teaches me both acoustic and electric guitar in several different musical genres.

"I left a review as many have done at the beginning of my lessons on the site's request. I studied with Edwin for about two years through Skype, and wanted to evaluate the experience after it was completed. Edwin was a very polite and skilled teacher. He taught me many new techniques and different styles of jazz guitar that stick with me still, and which I use every day in my playing. I recommend him to anyone wanting to learn more about playing jazz guitar."

During lessons he has also taught me music theory and explained it simply, and through that I feel like the guitar and music in general has been opened up to me and I now see music more clearly.

"Chris is great! I've been trying to learn via Rocksmith for ~2 years, and I'd made some good progress, but I felt like I was missing some things. I started taking lessons with Chris about 3 months ago, and he's been awesome at figuring out where I am and which skill gaps I can fill to make me a better guitarist overall. His lessons are a fun mix of practical application and (a very non-scary, beginner-oriented take on) music theory. He's great at tailoring lessons to what I want to learn and is always really positive and encouraging! I highly recommend him!"

"Will is an excellent teacher who has taught bass, acoustic and electric guitar to our son for the last 7 years.

Will's unique teaching method allows the student to assume ownership of the learning process. His student-driven lessons had our son playing songs from the very beginning. Not chords or scales, but songs that he chose. It has kept my son engaged and passionate about music throughout his childhood.

Will is also exceptionally flexible and kind, making it easy for us to fit lessons into our schedule. He has really shaped our son's childhood and love of music. We are so thankful and would highly recommend him as an excellent teacher for any student."
