Baltimore, MD

View Full Profile

Classical guitar is warm, rich, and beautifully complex. It is a self-contained artform which needs no accompaniment. Classical guitar music is instantly gratifying, even at the beginner level. To unlock your highest potential, I'll help you learn proper picking as well as fret hand technique, sight reading, music theory, and fretboard logic. We will also study and learn chord voicings, voice leading, ear training, and sight-singing.

My teaching style is friendly, patient, and inclusive. I believe in a well rounded teaching approach through reading, as well as learning to play by ear.
I prefer to use these books for reading and developing good technique:

Aaron Shearer Classic Guitar Method vol. 1 and 2
Classical Guitar Duets: Charles Duncan
Franz Wohlfahrt Violin Etudes: 60 Studies
Frederick Noad Classical Guitar Technique, vol. 1 and 2
Matteo Carcassi: 25 Melodic And Progressive Studies
Andres Segovia: Twenty Studies For Guitar
Giuliani's 120 Studies For Right ...

About Jason
Hi, I'm Jason. I've been teaching and performing as a full time career for 23 years. During that time, I've developed a diverse, flexible approach to teaching that is customized to the needs and interests of each of my students. I'll help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve them.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to help you unlock your full musical potential by tailoring your lesson experience to your unique interests and goals. Your lessons will be a balance of technique and creativity. My studio is equipped with pro sound gear and software so we can incorporate drum sounds, keyboards, bass, and guitar into your lessons.
I encourage all of my students to read standard notation, but it isn't necessary if you would prefer to learn by ear.

*** Specialties ***

-I'm
comfortable teaching most styles, including R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Funk, Rock and Metal. I try to encourage all students to learn the basics of music theory, so you can understand the music you learn.

-I use a wide range of method books. I also use books that I have authored, which have been used in music programs in Baltimore area private schools and charter schools.

I've been going to Jason for a few months now and I have significantly improved my playing ability and increased my music knowledge. Lessons are tailored to what I want to learn and there has been noticeable improvement even over a short period of time.

Jason tailors the course to a student's individual learning pace and needs. There is also a good combination between theory and learning cords to play a song. Technique is emphasized to build good habits and a foundation for future growth.

I strongly recommend classical guitar as it is the most rewarding and informative style of playing. It allows you to play unaccompanied at any given moment which is amazing to me. Whether you are doing it for enjoyment or entrance to a university, I would love to see more interest in classical guitar. It enhances all other styles technically and musically speaking.

About Josh
Hi there! My name is Josh. I have been playing guitar for the majority of my life and have been teaching since 2010. I have a music degree with a focus on classical guitar and I play rock, blues, jazz, folk, pop, and just about anything you want to learn. Whether your goals are to strum and sing, improvise, learn classical guitar or rock, or understand music theory, I want to help you reach them. Music is my life and I love being able to share every bit of knowledge I have with my students. It is a blast to watch my students progress and get excited about guitar.

As a player, I learned what to avoid and what to utilize in order to accelerate my playing as quickly as possible and you will save time and limit frustration with my methods. I will teach you how to practice, which is the single most important part of learning. Effecti
ve practice yields great results for everyone. Often teachers will only explain the "how"; I teach the "how" and the "why" so you will have ample knowledge to grow and explore on your own.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will teach you to play the songs/styles that you love. I provide my own transcription of each song and explain and demonstrate each element. Learn how to read music, create rhythms for strumming, build your chord knowledge, improvise, train your ear and understand song structures. We will coordinate a lesson plan that will fit your schedule and accelerate your learning.

I keep my lessons fun, upbeat and with a focus on each student's goals. I ensure full comprehension of all subjects covered, and make sure that each student is challenged and learning constantly.

My main word of advice is "Be patient." Learning an instrument takes time, practice and is a gradual process that is rewarding beyond words. Acknowledge every little improvement in your playing because that is what we want. I recommend a minimum of 2-3 separate 30 minute practice sessions. There's no reason to put it off any longer. Let's get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Plenty of parking, music stands, amp, effects pedals, extra picks, tuners, a comfortable setting, great attitude, and seating for parents. Students only need to have their guitar and a notebook.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

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.

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.

Austin, TX

Just like a classical approach on piano, I believe that a similar approach on guitar is the best method. It helps establish good technical foundations, it gets you playing better, sooner and it also helps remove the mystery from some aspects of music.
A classical guitar approach takes lots of patience, but is very rewarding. Studying from a method book such as the “Berklee Guitar Method” is the first step. Then, learning to play Bach and other early composers is next. Playing in all major and minor keys and learning solo pieces is a long term goal.

About David
My name is David and I'm a professional musician who just moved to North Austin. I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend. I have been teaching for over fifteen years, and I'm looking to get a few new students.
I teach guitar, piano, bass guitar and even upright bass. If it's a tutor you are looking for I can also teach music theory and appreciation. I have a knack for teaching young people, probably because I was young when I started my musical journey. I've been very successful at inspiring a student's love of music and instilling the patience required to take on the challenge of playing an instrument.
The first thing I like to do is get to know you, the music you enjoy and your goals. In a way, I l
ike to begin by letting the student lead.
In addition to learning from you, I intend to present you with new information, to try and broaden your musical tastes and teach you how to be an active listener.

Classical and Spanish

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Curriculum Gradation:
Elements of rhythm
Elements of pitch
Elements of dynamics
Elements of articulation
Reading/Writing notation
Tone development
Finding/Expanding your range
Dexterity, speed, and accuracy
How to project
How to advance to the next level
Music theory
Playing by ear
Improvisational techniques
Finding your signature style
Expression/Lyricism
Composition/Arrangement

My 16 year old son loves his lessons with Darrell and looks forward to them every week. He'd been taking guitar lessons elsewhere that were okay-ish, but this is so much more. Darrell is great, not only does he get along with and make my son want to learn, but at the same time they are working on voice, he is also teaching keyboard and working on the guitar! We really couldn't have asked for a better instructor.

My husband and I just had our first few lessons with Trevor and we couldn’t recommend him more. As a high school band director who is a guitar beginner, I think that Trevor is a fantastic teacher. He makes music and guitar fun, ensures you feel successful in each lesson, and is teaching quality information in a very logical order and pace.

I've taken a couple of lessons from Trevor so far and they have been awesome. I've taken lessons from about 7 or 8 instructors in my lifetime and he is definitely one of, if not the best.
The thing that makes Trevor stand out to me is that he took the time to get to know what I wanted to learn and to figure out how I like to learn. He comes prepared to the lessons with material, answers any questions I have during the week by email and has worked with me to develop a specific education plan to meet my goals.
I suggest taking a trial lesson with this guy to see if you're on the same page. I am definitely not going anywhere else while I live in Austin.

Lessons will be based on what YOU want to learn! Together, we will articulate these goals and create a curriculum to achieve them. Lessons and practicing should be fun, and my experience of teaching many many different students taught me that structured and goal oriented practice is necessary in order to play the music you want to learn.
Your part is to bring up this effort and practice regularly.
My part is to help you learn HOW to practice and master the instrument with proper technique.

About Ines
I have been passionately teaching guitar for more than 10 years and have been working as a Teaching Assistant in Classical Guitar at USC for the past three years. Before coming to the US in 2013, I taught individual and group guitar lessons at several music schools in Germany.

I have extensive experience working with students of all levels, from beginners to professional players. My youngest student so far was my 4 year old nephew, my oldest student was in his early 70's. Growing up in Germany, I have been playing the Classical Guitar for 25 years. Over the years I became a versatile musician playing not only Classical Guitar, but also electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and early instruments, like the lute and baroque guitar. I enjoy playing different styles of music from all time periods as they let me express in unique ways.

Ines has been a great teacher throughout college. Her emphasis on technique has greatly influenced how I approach guitar playing. Also, she taught me how important one's guitar tone is when playing a song the way the composer intended it to be played. It is very clear that I have improved as a guitar player while being her student and my guitar repertoire has expanded beyond just classical music.

I put a lot of planning into each lesson. I have a system where students move up through levels. I send out lesson notes with a plan for daily practice. I carefully introduce repertorie so the student works on several pieces at a time and is able to complete and receive a new piece every week. This is assuming the student follows the lesson plan every day in their daily practice. I have a ladder for the student to climb that starts at the very bottom and climbs through what someone would be studying in graduate work in top music conservatories.

About Matt
Matt has been playing the guitar since the summer of 1990. Matt's guitar playing has been nationally televised on the Rejoice Broadcast Network serving in both solo and accompaniment roles. Matt placed first in the annual commencement contest at Pensacola Christian College (PCC) and performed for nearly 5,000 people watching live and by close circuit television in adjacent auditoriums. Recently, Matt has performed Twilight composed by Toru Takemitsu with the Kalamazoo Symphony in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Matt received a Bachelors of Arts in guitar performance from PCC. He also received a Master of Music in Guitar performance from the Florida State University. Matt's major teachers have included Bruce Holzman, Joe Stallings, Steven Walter, and George Yeatman. While at PCC, he studied chamber music with Daisy and Alberto Jaffe. He has also p
erformed in the Master Classes of Juan Mercadel, Ricardo Cobo, David Tanenbaum, Stephen Robinson, Jorge Caballero, Douglas James, Lorenzo Micheli, Adam Holzman, Oscar Ghiglia, and Jeremy Jouve.

Matt has taught at the college level since January 2000. He taught guitar, bowed string instruments, music theory, and advanced cello full-time at Pensacola Christian College until 2006. He has also taught at Pensacola Junior College, Grand Rapids Community College, and Cornerstone University. Matt moved to the Kalamazoo area in July of 2011 and is currently teaching at Kalamazoo College, Crescendo Academy of Music, and out of his home office.

About Victor
My name is Victor Longoria, and I would love to help you further your skills and love for guitar!

I have a Master's degree in Guitar Performance -- emphasis on Classical and Flamenco -- from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. I have been providing private lessons in guitar for over 10 years for students of all ages and skill levels. I also perform and gig regularly. In my career, I have played several well known pieces, such as Entre Dos Aguas by Paco De Lucia, Asturias by Isaac Albeniz, and Recuerdos De La Alhambra by Francisco Tarrega.

Lesson plans are tailored to the student's needs and goals, which can be anything from learning how to read music, learning how to play by ear, furthering one's technique, etc. In lessons with me, you can expect to develop the basics of proper classical techniques, all the way to mastery, enabl
ing you to play fast and precise.

My goal as a teacher is to develop a strong foundation to allow students to eventually learn songs on their own with ease. I strive to create a fun environment to foster learning and keep students engaged in the task at hand. My schedule is flexible and I am open to lessons at my home, your home, or online. I can't wait to get started!
