Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

If you're like me, signing up for music lessons comes with a healthy amount of trepidation.

I've been there. Pay a bunch of money, work on exercises for an hour, and leave feeling no better equipped to start playing real music. Rinse, repeat.

This is the big mistake I see so many instructors make when teaching new students, and it's why so many new guitar players give up. The conviction to teach fundamentals and technique overshadows the most important lesson - to nuture confidence and enjoyment while playing.

Make no mistake, we'll learn the fundamentals, and you're in good hands - I have degrees in music theory and composition, and I've studied, performed, and taught classical guitar for over 15 years. But none of that means anything to you if we don't APPLY it to what you want to play.

My approach: You pick the material and we work from the ground up to develop the skills you'll need to make it come out of your guitar. We'll use the instrument as a teaching tool to help you ...

About Keenan

I'm a classically trained guitarist with bachelor's degrees in music theory and composition. I have over 15 years of study, performance, and instruction under my belt and I've taught all ages and ability - including special needs and foreign language students. I believe firmly that every person

Many students start on an acoustic guitar rather than an electric. I did, as a matter of fact. Acoustic guitars can be tricky if the student doesn’t have one that is the proper fit for them. My first goal with acoustic students is to make sure they are comfortable with their instrument, and that they can get the best sound out of it without using too much energy.
I find that many acoustic students turn out to be great at playing and singing after just a few months. Some of my youngest students have even composed their own music.

David , arrived on time at my home for my first piano lesson in 25 years.
He was friendly and knowledgeable and soon found some things for me to work on, but he was patient with this 53
Year old guy.
I feel confident that my piano skills will improve greatly with David’s tuition.
I eagerly look forward to my next lesson.
Tam T.
David is the best and the sweetest piano teacher we have ever have. He is so patient, kind, caring and creative in his teaching method.

My 5 year old has a little autism symptom so she's very easy to get distracted. Yet we have great fun time in every class with him. His class worth 20 min driving there and 20 min driving back, using toll road!
Lori
David has been so amazing with out 9 year old daughter. We have gone to him for over 2 years and she has come so far with her skills! He has so much patience. He's so kind and wonderful with kids. We were recommended by a friend and now we recommend him! He's high in demand for sure! We are sad we can't use him anymore due to scheduling issues. His prices are better than others too!

My experiences with Josh have been great. I have played guitar for many years, but my approach has always been lacking in relation to technique. Josh has helped me form a better mechanical understanding of my posture and movements. The adjustments he has helped me make have resulted in less stress on my fingers, wrist, and arms. He has always been thoroughly prepared for lessons. I would absolutely recommend Josh, especially for new musicians who want to learn their instrument in a fundamentally sound and detail oriented manner.
Paul W.
Been a student of Josh's for a few months now and feel very fortunate to have found him. His attention to detail, continuity between sessions, and obvious broad knowledge base are a few of the elements making this a very rewarding learning experience. I am learning to read music, understand music theory, and develop technique. I have very much looked forward to each lesson which Josh takes the time and effort to build upon with clear assignments and follow up. Josh is highly personable, professional and supportive. I highly recommend Josh.
Mark J.
Excellent, takes time to explain music so I can have a better understanding of the whole process.
I look forward to each class as I learn more.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have taught guitar for 10 years and believe students should get to play what they want to play! Students are asked to come up with a list of songs and/or artists they would love to play. Through teaching chords, note reading and theory, the song possibilities are endless! I also can help the aspiring singer/guitar player to be able to both play and sing simultaneously.

I have a degree from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) in Music Education. I've taught lessons for over 10 years and truly love working with eager students of all age

"Omar is a great music teacher! We love that he is able to come to our home for lessons, plus he is flexible when we have to reschedule due to doctors appointments. He is very knowledgeable & talented in different instruments. He is currently giving our daughter piano lessons and our son guitar lessons once a week. They enjoy his patient, fun, and low key style vs feeling pressured or nervous. Our children are learning so much from him and feel confident in their new skills -enough to perform in front of others. His prices are very reasonable, and we feel very blessed to have him as our children's music instructor. We highly recommend him!"

"I always wanted to learn how to play the guitar so in between a tour with the United States Air Force I heard about an opportunity to learn from Charley and I pursued it. I literally just picked up the guitar and didn't know the chords very well so I didn't know what to expect. When I met Charley, I realized that these next would of weeks were going to be awesome! He was very personable and flexible with my schedule, he was always willing to help and he had patients, which was very important to keeping my drive to play guitar. On top of having a great character, he was an amazing guitar player and extremely musically talented! I recommend his expertise one-hundred percent for all levels, it has given me a great base to playing the guitar. Hats off to his patients with me!! Highly recommend him!!!"

"Kirk was my first guitar teacher, and helped me develop and cultivate my raw desire to play the instrument. His open, laid-back approach and flexible schedule made my learning experience enjoyable. The only complaint I would have, is that Kirk does not really enforce persistence; practicing a phrase or entire piece with me until I get it perfect, but that might just be a personal preference. Overall a patient, enthusiastic, down-to-earth guy who's generally fun to be with, and even more fun to learn guitar with."

"I'd say Kevin is by far the best teacher I've ever had for acoustic guitar. I'm left handed, which require a special technique of instruction. I'm also well up in my years and have always wanted to learn guitar for my own enjoyment. He's patient with me, which is great, and is very fair with the time he provides for the cost. He goes the extra mile to assure I gain confidence and fulfillment with my playing. I have plenty more to learn and I only want Kevin because he teaches in a sincere and meaningful way. I'm going to start singing with my playing and am very excited about that. Kevin is awesome!!! He's genuine. I highly recommend him to anyone, at any age."
