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.
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
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.

Dust off that guitar and learn to play! Fingerstyle, flat picking, strumming, hybrid picking. I teach all styles - folk, pop, country, rock, jazz, blues, world and classical.
My goal as a teacher is to create lessons that are fun, challenging and directly related to your goals.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in classical guitar from Webster University St. Louis and have played in jazz, rock and pop bands as well as in musical theatre, opera, choir and orchestra. I've spent several years traveling and performing in a top 40 show band, and I pride myself on teaching my students using real life experience and battle tested methods. In addition, I've been teaching for 8+ years and during that time I've taught privately, through music studios and in the public school system as a high school music teacher and rock band director.

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.

Adam has been a great teacher and exactly the sort of professional and understanding person I was looking for. While I don't think my mediocre (getting better every week) guitar skills are the best testament to Adam's ability as a teacher, I think the fact that he has encouraged me to stick with it and turn a crazy idea into a legitimate hobby is.
Students can expect fun and relevant lessons according to their specific goals and taste.
Do you know how to play guitar at all? Maybe you have the basics down, but for me, it does not matter what stage you begin at. what matters is where you will end at! In acoustic guitar lessons with me, there is 100% success guarantee! No student i have ever taught has come close to failure. In fact failure only exists when one gives up on themselves and i will not tolerate it! See you around! :)

I can teach all styles, all levels, you'll learn to play songs, basic to advanced chords, learn to read music, music theory, but most importantly have fun doing it!
I attended the prestigious Berklee college of music, have been teaching guitar for 10 years and playing for 20. I create lesson plans before every lesson to make sure that my students progress efficiently. I realize that most of the students I gain from takelessons.com will be beginners. Starting off with simple, one finger open chords, and simple melodies is business as usual. I can also teach students their favorite songs using this method. Of course reading music is an option, and I assign a theory book for this based on the students current skill level. As students progress, I teach scales, chord strumming patterns and things of the like. I love teaching and always have fun with my students, it's great to see them excited about learning they're favorite songs. I've been doing this a long time and it doesn't feel like work to me, I'm enthusiastic and well prepared.
