Private Guitar Teacher

My students will have the opportunity to learn music theory and perform their favorite songs from any genre in my lessons. Throughout my 27 years of playing the guitar and 17 years of teaching it, I have learned that patience and practice are what defines a great guitarist. During my lessons, the student will not be rushed, and they will not feel uncomfortable nor nervous in my setting. Overall, their time will be used effectively when they are with me. Understanding is one aspect, but practice completes the process. A student has to practice at home as well. They will be provided practice sheets or online exercises to help them achieve that effectively.

Like any guitar teacher, my lessons are designed to explain how the instrument works, and where to put your fingers, but I try to move past this to where students understand why the instrument works the way it does, why each placement of fingers produces the sounds it does, what a song is saying lyrically and musically, and the relevant history of both pop/rock music and the guitar itself which has lead to our present state. Please Email me your questions. I look forward to our first lesson.

Great teacher! Very encouraging and positive!
Justin
My name is Justin, and I've been tutored by Paul since October 2018. I came to him without any prior music experience and unsure if I could ever learn to play the guitar. I'm glad that I chose him as my tutor. He knows how to explain different concepts in a way that I can understand. That coupled with his eagerness for me to get better makes him an excellent teacher. Every time I attend his class I'm always motivated to improve. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to play an instrument.
Braylen W.
My son's first lesson with Paul went well. My son has ADHD and keeping his attention takes work. Even though my son had a meltdown during his lesson, Paul showed patience and continued to encourage him. After my son's first lesson, he was excited and told us how much he enjoyed drums.

I teach the basics of learning acoustic guitar technique including: Selecting an appropriate guitar for the student, correct holding of the guitar, finger and hand placement, guitar notes and scales, guitar tablature, reading and playing guitar chords, strumming and picking, playing guitar songs from most genres and music theory. I also teach electric bass guitar and ukulele, beginner through intermediate. I teach guitar in most genres of music (except hip-hop and rap). I have been playing acoustic guitar since I was 10 years old, and have a great deal of experience in playing most genres and techniques, I am used to accompanying groups of people in different settings on the guitar. I learned to play ukulele as one of my first instruments. I learned to play electric bass guitar in stage band and in a rock group in high school. I love the guitar and it is one of my favorite instruments because of its versatility.

Today was our first lesson. Karen was on time and professional, and also very personable. She took the time to see what level each of my girls was at. I like that she teaches theory along with playing.

"Awesome Music Teacher!!

I have been taking Guitar and Ukulele lessons from Eric for over a year and a half and couldn't be happier! I am an adult student with a very busy and at times hectic life. I started taking guitar lessons with Eric as a way to relax and learn music which I love. I received a set of lessons as a birthday gift, I have truly enjoyed the lessons and Eric's teaching style ever since.

Eric has a calm demeanor and is very knowledgeable in his craft. He is patient beyond his years and is very focused and in tuned with his students. I find myself getting better with every practice and lesson due to Eric's teaching ability. He knows how to motivate and bring out the hidden talents in his students, which is extremely impressive.

Eric teaches in a comfortable and non-threatening environment. He is calm, confident and patient with his students. He understands that each student is an individual and makes the needed adjustments that benefit that student. It's obvious that Eric loves what he does and it shows in his teaching and attitude. He is upbeat and positive which makes learning from him very easy.

I have spent most of my adult life as a trainer/instructor. Eric is a great example of a teacher who knows what he is doing and cares about the progress of the student. Eric is the ideal teacher if you are interested in learning and appreciate music."

"Glorius

I had been playing Guitar with zero musical training and zero knowledge of theory for about a year and a half prior to being taught by Francesca. I've only been to lessons once a week for a few months and my dexterity as Well as my knowledge of theory has been vastly improved. The laid back environment coupled with Francesca's great communication skills make learning comfortable and easy. The experience is always focused on bettering your playing and you as a musician. There is never fear of embarrasment from messing up or being incorrect because of the friendly encouraging atmosphere. .From an aspiring beginner to an experienced musician looking for guidance, I believe Francesca's lessons could be helpful to anyone looking to improve on or become a musician."

"I've been taking guitar lessons with Ahmad for almost two months and I must say I'm very happy with how everything is going.

I've been playing guitar for years (15+) and truly I had plateaued on my guitar skills and practice routines. My whole idea of taking classes was to mainly be able to improve my overall technique and pull out of the plateau.

In just a couple of months I have been able to start building upon the library of technique tutorials Ahmad provides and keep a constant practicing routine. Ahmad is smart enough as a teacher to keep me entertained and being able to still deliver good technical advise so that I can build up my skills, without growing bored or unaware of the classes.

His schedule is surprisingly open which is a big plus for me -- I usually work 'til 7-8pm.

I see a lot of people taking classes with Ahmad at the beginner level but even if you already have some experience I'd still recommend Ahmad.

Hope this helps \m/!"

"Alex is an amazing teacher!!!! I have been studying under him for several years now and he consistently makes tricky concepts really fun and approachable.

Not only does he have a clear method for teaching guitar (I really like the structure) but I can come to him with any song or idea and he either teaches it to me or we work through it together.

With so many guitar teachers in the area, I consider myself lucky for having met such a brilliant guitarist and wonderful teacher. Can't recommend him enough."

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.
