Acoustic Guitar class walks students through building a great relationship with the acoustic guitar. We will learn about chords, rhythms and composition as well as learning techniques in finger picking, plucking, strumming and songwriting.

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 and the journey of patience. The process of learning has helped me carve out and cultivate my style of music. It's opened up a lot of doors for me in my life. I've had the honor to play with a lot of great performers and have been lucky enough to tour the U.S. and Canada with festivals and showcases such as Vans Warped Tour, South By Southwest and the Halifax Pop Explosion.I've been the opening act for Carolyn Wonderland, Maria Taylor, Tsunami Bomb, Tilly and the Wall, Basia Bulat, Rise Against, Strike Anywhere. Anathallo, Cursive, Milton Hopki
ns, and Pony Up.

When I have free time I volunteer with the Houston Chapter of Girls Rock Camp to help teach girls empowerment through songwriting and music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I began teaching as an afterschool job when I was 16. I was homeschooled, so I feel that the experience taught me that everyone learns differently and that there is not just one standardized method to playing music.

My teaching style varies with each student, but the one constant is my ability to make each and every client I encounter completely fall in LOVE with music. It's my super power.

Lesson plans are tailored for your specific needs and to help you achieve your musical goals and aspirations at your desired pace. I enjoy my students and making music with them.

Here is an overview of the lessons that I provide.

Guitar:
Finger Picking, Song Writing, Rhythm, Lead, Scales,Modes & Ear Training.

Songwriting and composition: Learn techniques, how to brain storm and plot your musical story line. This class pairs great with vocal lessons or guitar lessons.

Bass:
Scales, Rhythm, Beginner and Advanced song structure, Ear Training

Ukulele :
Technique, Intro to Chords, Ear Training, Strumming patterns - Ukulele is one of my favorite classes to teach. You simply can not help but smile when playing this instrument!

Vocals :
Breathing techniques, Scales, Harmonizing

We had the privilege of having Mr. Zaid give our son private piano lessons. He is a very detailed instructor, very patient with his students.

He does not rush while giving the lesson, but rather genuinely cares about the students progress and is very creative in his style of teaching I would highly recommend his program.

About Andrew D.

Houston, TX

My goal is not so much teaching one how to play an instrument, but more broadly, to help one cultivate their own living musicality. My own areas of practice, study, and specialization are in free improvisation, sound art/Sonic sculpture, conceptual performance, and songwriting/composition. I've explored a vast number of different styles and genre. Jazz, classical, folk and bluegrass, spirituals, blues, punk rock, contemporary ghospel, electronic dance and ambient, to name a few... I love working with kids, I love teaching any age any skill level, I promise to listen, and fine tune our lesson to fit your specific personality and needs.

About Andrew
I've been practicing and studying music for nearly 12 years. Conceptual performance, free improvisation and Sonic sculpture for over 5. For me, music isn't just about playing an instrument. A musical practice is an opportunity for incredible self growth. Excercise for our minds and awareness.

I've worked with students ranging from age 3 to age 62 in the year or so I've been tutoring. I've taught piano mostly ,but am more technically proficient with guitar(electic/acoustic/classical).

I'm a songwriter and recording/performing artist, my style is very ecclectic and inspired by anything from classical, jazz, avant garde, to pop and folk music. I'm confident and versatile. Im comfortable playing or even performing with most instruments. It's taken alot of practice, reasearch, experimentation, and collaboration but over time musc has give
n my experience life and enriched my life and those around me.

I believe in the cultivation of a living musicality.

My approach emphasises the importance of process, exploration and discovery, as well as the study and analysis of traditional concepts. I propose, active listening to be the simplest form of composition. And as musicians an active ear is central, not only in practice, but generally, for creative evolution and innovation.

I've found the most effective methods effectively balance theory and practice.

I believe the biggest inhibitor to growth, musical or otherwise, is a lack of confidence. A lack that comes from too much pressure to produce idealized results-- fear of mistakes...

I embrace the developmental process,
I work with every student to make each lesson plan efficient, meaningful and inspiring.

No more "air guitar"!!! Learn the basic chords or improve your knowledge base or learn to write your own music. YOU are the Master of your song!

I have enjoyed teaching at all levels, a part from creating, it is one of my passions. Teaching and watching my students practice and practice until they have mastered a chord, a song or create a beat, has always brought me joy that is priceless. Music is a strong global force that makes people feel good, gives strength, relaxed, pumped up, and brings everyone closer. I feel amazed and honored to pass my musical knowledge to you. Make time for your passion, and I will guide you.

About Amir
Music, my daughter and teaching guitar lessons are my passions. If you are testing out the guitar, want to learn chords or want to learn to create a beat, you have stopped at the right profile. I am ready to teach you to be the best musician you can be by developing techniques such as penatonic, great vibrato, neoclassical scales or train your ear. Music brings people together so everything is possible. Maintain a positive frame of mind, stay hungry, persistent, and watch how your skills will develop as musician.

The curriculum offered in these lessons are highly flexible depending on the needs and wants of the student. After establishing what their goal is, the student will go through an extremely efficient system of musical/guitar training that will lead to the desired goals in a reasonable amount of time.

However, no matter what the student's goals are, the curriculum will have a strong focus on making the student a great MUSICIAN. The guitar will be the way in which you will learn to express your developing musical ideas and interpretations of others ideas.

Some of the standard elements of the curriculum are: Picking/strumming technique, note identification on the fretboard, rhythmic exercises, chord construction, solo improvisation, music theory, ear training and much more!

About Troy
Hi! My name is Troy Creagh. I have been playing guitar for a little over 20 years and have been playing professionally for 15 years. I have a bachelor's degree in music and have been teaching for 11 years.

I love teaching music because I know that I have the ability to translate my knowledge to all different kinds of people by helping my students learn the way that best suits them. There is no greater joy than seeing the progress in someone that you have been helping!

Here are a few things I have done in my career: Hoodoo theater production (Berlin, Germany), Of Monsters And Men tour (guitar), guitar for Ray Parker Jr. (Ghostbusters theme song), guitar for Freddie Washington, resident guitarist at Stages Theather (2017 season), (former) principle guitar at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, guitar for MOJI (Freepress Summer Fest & South
By South West), and much more!
