About Edwin
Hello! Thank you for your interest in taking guitar/piano/music lessons.

I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 20 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.

I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.

Other subjects taught include bass guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, harmonium, classical percussion, music theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.

Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunit
y to play percussion in the school symphony while at the same time developed an intense interest in the instrument that would become my true love, the guitar.

During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.

My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

*** Lesson Details ***
Now also available to teach online video chat lessons through Skype.

Every one of you is unique and there are many possible paths to reach your goals in music.

With my background and music industry experience, I am able to customize my lessons for you so that you can reach your desired goals. We will take some time to find out where your passion lies in music and I will use my experience and knowledge to create a customized lesson-plan that will allow us to focus on reaching your desired goals and at the same time maintain a well rounded music education.

I find this to be key in making the lessons and your practice sessions very enjoyable, fun and laid back - knowing that everything we practice, play and talk about is in line with your goals as a student.

I will also be playing along with you and demonstrating everything that we're working on - music is meant to be shared and played with others and it is important to have that experience of interaction from early on in your lessons.

So whether it's learning to accompany yourself or others, write songs, read music, understand harmony, solo, or just jam out to your favorite songs, you will be well on your way to reaching your goals within 6 months of my lessons.

Look forward to making music with you!

Edwin was patient and very knowledgeable, he moved me along by using my musical skills while emphasising the basics to provide a firm foundation. He gave me some immediate gratification and set up some good challenges to work on for my next lesson. He is a talented teacher, and it felt like he was right in the room with me. Highly recommend!

Max was a great teacher. I walked in wanting to learn better soloing techniques for my bluegrass guitar. With Max's help, I got over several humps in my playing and solo creating skills. If you're looking for a solid teacher that listens to what you have to say, Max is your teacher.

Lisa helped me get through my teenage years. Her voice lessons healed me and when I learned I actually could sing, it gave me the courage to get solos and leading roles at high school, where I was nothing but a quiet weirdo. With voice lessons, I was that weirdo who was the best singer in my home town. Thanks Lisa!

I have been taking vocal training lessons with Lisa. It was a wonderful experience! The teacher offered many voice training techniques and gave me recordings to practice daily at home - very useful gradual techniques. The teacher is very knowledgeable and encouraging. In class we practiced singing along with the recordings of the favorite singers. Highly recommending Lisa for the vocal training.

I’ve been giving guitar and music theory lessons for four years now, and I’ve taught a variety of ages. Whether it’s rock and roll, country, or alternative, I promise you’ll be playing your favorite song after a few lessons! Every student receives lessons that are tailored to their interests. My job is to help you reach your goals in a fun and personalized way while also teaching you the fundamentals of music.

About Daniel
Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for nine years now and teaching for a little over four years. For the past six years, I’ve been the lead electric guitarist in my church’s band. I’ve also been involved in multiple nationally ranked choirs and performed at Carnegie Hall in 2016. I’m also the lead guitarist in a singer-songwriter trio called Two Beards and a Boy. We’ve played at city events, fundraisers, and restaurants in the DFW area.

My love for music has played a huge role in my life, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Nothing beats the excitement of a student as they’re able to play their first song. Whether you are wanting to learn how to perform, compose music, or play your favorite song, I promise to help you achieve your goal.

I’ve taught a variety of ages, and I truly believe it's never too early or late to l
earn an instrument. I make sure to structure each student’s lessons to fit their goals and needs. I ensure to focus solely on what the student is wanting to learn. All of my lessons are designed to be fun and educational, and the student is in complete control. I have been working with children and youth for many years through the Upward Sports program, and I love building connections with all of my students to create a comfortable and fun learning environment.

As a college student at UT, I am very flexible with scheduling, so feel free to contact me about available times for lessons. I hope to hear from you soon, and please let me know if you have any questions!

Daniel did such an amazing job working with my son on his electric guitar lessons!

From a parent's perspective, he charged a very reasonable rate, he was willing to work with our schedules, and his communication with me was both timely and professional.

My son loved working with Daniel because, while he did dedicate time to teaching my son the fundamentals, he also allowed my son to bring in pieces of music that were self-selected. Being able to learn excerpts from his favorite songs really motivated my son to pick up his guitar instead of his XBox controller!

I highly recommend Daniel as a teacher. He is knowledgable, encouraging, and passionate about music in a way that is contagious. We wish he still lived close enough to us to continue lessons!

About Derek
Derek Wesley A. is a professional singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist currently living in the United States. He was born in North Carolina on February 24th, 1983. Derek began learning music at age 4 with the help of his father (Harvey Dalton A.: bassist for legendary Southern Rock band The Outlaws). Derek would play melodies and chords he heard on the radio or around the house and Harvey would explain to him how these related to each other. At the age of 10 Derek began playing drums, and by fourteen he was playing professionally in the nearby counties.
In high school Derek started the band Blue Dust Box with three of his classmates. This band charted for two weeks at #8 in the Australian Unsigned Artist Charts. Derek was the primary songwriter for the group. At age 19 he moved to Raleigh and quickly became one of the most sought-aft
er bassists in the region, which led to multiple tours of the United States and Canada, as well as countless hours of session work. Derek was also consistently the house bassist for five separate music venues in Raleigh over a 7 year period.
While based out of Raleigh, Derek played with John Custer (Columbia/Sony Records), Kenny Soule (Nantucket/DAG), Nick Hagelin (The Voice/Superstition TV Show, Interscope Records, Carolina Ballet), Daniel "Slick" Ballinger (B.B. King's Oh Boy! Records), world renowned blues legend John Dee Holeman (Martin Guitars/Music Maker Foundation) and many others.
Derek now lives in Winston Salem, NC. He earned his Bachelor of Music Degree in Composition and his Master of Music Degree in Composition at the conservatory University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

I had the pleasure of teaching Derek private composition lessons at the UNCSA School of the Arts from 2016 to 2018. He is one of the most versatile musicians I've ever encountered--at home with a wide variety of American styles as well as being an accomplished concert composer. He is well-acquainted with virtually every instrument in the popular music genre, and is a gifted singer-songwriter. Derek is likable and has a winning personality as a teacher.
