Private Guitar Teacher

The Guitar is my first love. I customize every lesson for every individual student that I have, and base the heart of each lesson off of the infatuation I have for my six-stringed side kick. I love to use the guitar as a tool to expand my students creativity. My students learn to listen and appreciate a broad variety of styles and experience the full music spectrum.
Lessons will cover scales, theory, chords, jazz and blues progression as well as Crafting your tone for your amplifier,finger picking and performance techniques.

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

I teach you to be a musician, not just an instrumentalist. There is a huge difference. I give you material to learn while doing my best to make it fun as well. I teach you the basics and build on that foundation. You can learn the material as fast or as slow as you want. However, it is not a canned approach because every student is unique and your learning styles reflect that. My goal is your success, truly!

About Jerry

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands/groups. They all had one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not enjoying learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

Online Guitar Teacher

When I teach guitar, I try to give students the tools they need for creativity and expressing themselves with their instrument. I let them decide how far into any given subject matter we dive, because I want our lessons to be tailored to their goals and their experience with playing. While maintaining discipline and thoughtful technique, I want my students to discover their inner artist through the blank canvas of music that lies before them while their imaginations soar. I also want my students to understand that being proficient on an instrument is earned, and that it will take time to play those difficult songs. But my students should not fear, because I will make getting their fun and exciting!

As for my experience, I like to play a lot of classic rock, folk, blues, and even alternative and punk rock. I throw in a little jazz every now and again. I can teach standard picking, hybrid picking, and finger picking as well. If a student is interested in music theory, I base a lot of ...

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

"Phenomenal & Friendly Instructor

Tim is a phenomenal instructor! I have tried expensive videos by Marty Schwartz, subscription services like JamPlay.com, and have spent hundreds of dollars on Skype lessons with popular YouTube instructors like Mike Gross. In the year that I have been playing, one month of lessons with Tim did more for my playing than 11 months with the other methods I've tried. You owe it to yourself to give Tim a month of your time. He transformed my understanding of the guitar, has taught me to be self-sufficient with learning songs I hear, and has made playing exciting. Without being able to articulate exactly what I wanted to accomplish, Tim's uncanny intuition for balancing what I think I needed with what I really need took my playing to the next level very quickly. Nothing can substitute the depth of his musical knowledge, but more importantly, his keen sense of feeding me just what I need from everything he knows. Tim carefully plans out a lesson for me based off of my progress, has me take notes, and gives me ideas on how to improve before my next lesson. The most exciting day of my week is the hour I spend learning from a great instructor and a great human being. I couldn't be happier with my decision to learn how to play from Tim."

Guitar Lessons in Houston: More than Just Strings

By Andrew D. - Houston Guitar Teacher

Do you want to learn how to play the guitar in Houston? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Private guitar lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher near you or online accelerates progress, increases enjoyment, and improves every beginner's chances of becoming an expert player.

Have you ever wished that you had a secret world -one that you could retreat to any time you desired? A world that you alone could shape and, each time you returned, remained completely untouched by any hand other than your own? That world exists, and not in some distant galaxy or in the dreams of those deep in sleep (although they may exist there as well). That world exists in music; more specifically, that world exists when you dive into the world of learning to play music and musical instruments. Learning, growing, changing, and moving with music as it moves with you. When you take guitar lessons in Houston, all of these things are possible.

This is the reason I love to teach guitar lessons - whether in-home, studio, or online classes - in Houston. To be able to share MY world that I have been building for so long is just such a powerful thing. Once you jump off that cliff into the open air that is the musical realm, you never stop falling deeper and deeper into it. It is truly something that stays with you for a lifetime. There is nothing I enjoy more than bringing somebody new to that cliff and showing them what lies beyond. It’s such a tremendous feeling when I see the look of understanding and excitement on a student’s face when comprehension washes over them, and then to see them turn around and use that new tool to shape their musical mind.

So awaken YOUR musical mind - take the plunge and begin to shape your world. Sign up for guitar lessons in Houston today!

TakeLessons guitar instructors work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. We guarantee a customized experience that will exceed your expectations. In fact, we are so committed to your happiness that we offer all new customers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on your first lesson.
