Private Guitar Teacher

Nothing can beat seeing an experienced person playing the guitar, except being able to ask that person questions and get answers. One on one private lessons are what I offer in a comfortable, relaxed environment. I can show you exactly how to make all the moves for playing correctly. This makes progress exponentially faster. We also get into theory, which is WHY you are playing the notes you play in songs. You want lead guitar? You've got it here. I teach all styles, old and new.

Perry takes the time to explain flamenco and related styles deeply and thoroughly. He also provides detailed micro-scale feedback on hand/arm placement, orientation, range and which muscle groups to engage. But more than the technical, he has an awesome vibe and makes learning guitar quite an enjoyable experience.

Private Guitar Teacher

Through my 20+ years of playing guitar, I have learned the most effective ways to practice and get the best results. And as a working musician I can bring a degree of performance to every lesson. I love what I do and I love seeing my students progress into the players they have always wanted to be.

About Scott

Scott S. I started playing guitar while in high school. Then, I furthered my studies in guitar at the Atlanta Institute of Music (2 Years) and Georgia Perimeter College (2 Years) where I studied Music Theory and Jazz. It was during these few years when I played in several rock, Bluegrass and Jazz

Scott
Scott is a very patient teacher. He adapts his lessons based on the students understanding music theory and what student wants to achieve on a personal level. Personally, I was very shy and with little understanding of theory but was willing learn and apply Scott's teachings. What I didn't expect, is a life long friendship. I would highly recommend anyone who from a beginner to experienced player to Scott Sadler to expand their knowledge in music.

I took weekly in-home lessons with Scott from (roughly) age 6 to age 13 and I could not recommend him more highly. Though I should be reviewing Scott as a teacher and musician, I feel that I should first mention Scott as a person; Learning from such a young age and through an incredibly formative time of my life, Scott became for me a sort of mentor as well as a teacher. He encouraged me to do what I cared about, allow myself to be creative, and get over the fear of making mistakes and owning my own work. Scott listens to what his students have to say, whether it’s feedback, goals, or concerns, guitar and life related alike. Easygoing, positive, and never judgmental, he creates a space where a student feels genuinely heard, and for me this was very important.

When it comes to lessons, it is impossible to miss how passionate Scott is for what he does; Scott is always full of ideas for each student and how they can use their strengths and interests, and he puts time and energy into personalizing each student’s lessons instead of simply going by the book. He does this because he is genuinely passionate about each of his students. For me, this meant turning to song-writing when I « just can’t do Taylor Swift » as I remember a 6-year-old me sighing one day, helping me learn to craft my own solos, or teaching me to write my own tabs for songs I couldn’t find yet online. Scott introduced me to blues and jazz at a young age and showed me so much about music I would never have otherwise found, and he always taught me the theory behind what we did so I understood what I was doing and could apply it on my own. I’ll never forget learning Georgia On My Mind, learning how to solo over it on my own (and do it well), and the pride of seeing what I was capable of after all that work; even 4 years later, I still know the song by heart.

In terms of capability, Scott is highly proficient and can handle just about anything you throw at him. Because he seriously knows what he is doing, he can improvise and tailor lessons to teach you what you want to learn. While I was learning, I always looked to Scott to play a piece I was struggling with to see how it could be improved, as he always played it beautifully. Listening to Scott play, I was always re-inspired or re-motivated to learn and to improve.

I’m sure I’ve been rambling for far too long at this point and I could honestly continue for a while, but I’ll spare you and simply leave it at this: I am endlessly grateful to Scott for what and how he taught and cannot recommend him more highly to anyone who wants to really learn how to play. No matter your age, experience, interests or other concerns, Scott can teach you, and teach you well.
Kimberly
Scott taught my son for 4 years before he married and moved away. Heart breaking for my son bc Scott encouraged my son creatively while teaching him fundamentals and theory. In the end Scott was teaching my son how to compose songs that my son had written. Scott is honest and great with kids.

Online Guitar Teacher

I specialize in flamenco guitar, one of the most challenging styles of guitar playing. The techniques and fundamentals of flamenco are valuable resources for any guitarist, regardless of genre or style. While everything is taught through the filter of flamenco, students will gain a wealth of knowledge applicable to the guitar in general.

One can expect to start by developing a full technical routine aimed at developing stamina, strength, precision, and speed. All fundamental techniques will be introduced. Rhythm will be emphasized throughout. Harmony studies will be introduced where appropriate. Repertoire is given according to each student's capabilities and tastes, including resources for accompanying dance and singing.

Jeff
I have been gearing up for some extensive travel in Spain combined with some immersive flamenco guitar studies. Prior to studying with him, I had played various forms of guitar for several years but only had minimal exposure to true Flamenco styles. Gustavo has been extremely helpful in getting me ready for the experience with techniques, fundamentals, in-depth palos knowledge, rhythm and timing, interactions with Dancers and Singers, etc.. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented in all areas of Flamenco and he is very good at explaining it all to a non-native (extranjero) like myself! His depth of musical theory combined with in-depth experience studying in Spain make him a uniquely qualified Flamenco Guitar Instructor. This was my first experience with online instruction and within the first lesson, I felt like I had known him for months. I highly recommend studying with Gustavo no matter how much experience you have when you start this path!!
Vlad
I have been taking flamenco guitar lessons from Gustavo for over 2 years and have only good things to say about him. His passion for flamenco, his eclectic knowledge of the style, his considerate teaching style are second to none. Gustavo is very inspirational and his teaching style adapts easily to any student’s level. He is easy going and his choice of material is exceptional. I would highly recommend Gustavo to anyone willing to explore the depths and subtaltiies of the flamenco guitar.

"I have been taking guitar lessons from Andrew for some time now, and I must say that he is by far the best teacher I've ever had. He never rushes you out and he genuinely cares about your musical development. I started taking lessons from Andrew to prepare for my music auditions for college. He put much effort into teaching me all that I know about ear training, music theory, improvisation, and my technique as a guitarist. I accredit Andrew in playing a fundamental role in my acceptance into Berklee College of Music. Not only has he helped me get accepted into Berklee, but within a short time of taking lessons with Andrew, I soon had the ability to play songs that once were beyond my skill level. I never imagined that I would be able to replicate Toni Iommi's riffs and John Mayer's finger-picking patterns, but Andrew knew how to solve the problems in my playing that I was struggling with. I honestly never thought I would get past those problems. He knows how to teach you in a way that makes an intimidating lick, not so difficult to play after all. He also teaches you HOW to practice to perfect your technique, which improved my playing dramatically.
All in all, I feel so blessed to have found Andrew and been a student of his. He's not only a fantastic musician, but overall he's an amazing person - friendly, caring, funny, down-to-earth, encouraging, patient, and honest. I consider Andrew not only my guitar teacher, but a mentor and trusted friend. Going to lessons is something I look forward to every week. I cannot thank him enough for playing such a big role in my musical journey and impacting my life in such a great way. You rock, Andrew <3"

"Everything a music teacher should be

My worst nightmare was that taking guitar lessons as an adult would be similar to my forced and short-lived piano lessons as a youth. Mark quickly set my fears aside the first lesson by outlining what I would need to learn to reach my goals. He is very adaptive to the student based on music preferences and skill progression. Each week we focus on progressively harder songs.

Aside from guitar knowledge and teaching skills, Mark is also very flexible around your schedule. He really makes an effort to communicate and to reschedule when needed.

I'd recommend Mark to anyone looking for guitar lessons. I feel lucky to have found Mark as a teacher."

What is a Lute, and How is it Different From the Guitar?

As a guitar player, I rarely had to deal with the issue of explaining what my instrument was to people I met. Even non-musicians are generally familiar with the guitar and the many forms and shapes it takes. When I made the transition to playing the lute, however, this changed significantly, due in no small part to the odd-looking case that I have to carry the instrument around in. People will often ask me, “What is a lute?” In truth, the history of the lute is a long one and I often s …
