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

Mr. Tomas Ballesteros is a great teacher. My 9 year old son began guitar lessons with Mr. Ballesteros in January 2016. Since then he has learned a lot. Mr. Ballesteros is very experienced, prompt, punctual and professional. We definitely would recommend his services.

I taught myself guitar shortly after learning piano. Guitar is now my favorite way to sing and play my favorite songs. Guitar takes patience and determination. However, it takes a very short period of time to start reaping all of the benefits that guitar has to offer.

About Ruben
I am a young energetic pianist, anxious to pass on my passion and love for music. I began my journey through the wonders of music at the age of seven. My first year as a piano student, I absolutely loathed it. I was frustrated and didn't understand the time and effort I had to put in to be able to play like the pros. However, thanks to an amazing teacher and proper guidance, I now love playing and teaching piano as well as guitar and voice. I continue to further my musical education in composition and theatre. I look forward to meeting you!

The guitar is, of course, a staple of American music and it's versatility is endless. With me, you'll learn first to explore the instrument itself and then to use your ear to create and arrange songs. We will use music from all eras to gain a full understanding of how the guitar can play its role in music, from just jamming to performance-quality playing.

About Joseph
I am first and forever a musician and I want to inspire the love of learning and playing music within all those I encounter. I have a degree in Musical Theatre from Western Carolina University, and I've been diligently studying music since I was a child. From me, you will learn multiple styles and work with both written music and music played by ear. I expect a great deal from my students and I hope they expect the same from me.

If music be the food of love, PLAY ON!

Joe was a great instructor! I came into the skype lesson with a very base knowledge of guitar (and not having touched mine in years) and he did a wonderful job teaching me! He gave clear and easy to understand instructions and demonstrated the fingering and techniques he wanted me to learn along with explaining them in detail, which I found very helpful. The lesson was a lot of fun and I'm excited to start practicing again! We covered a good amount of material in about an hour long lesson, some chords, strumming, scales, and exercises to practice on my own, and he even taught me a good song incorporating the chords and strumming we learned in the lesson. Joe is a great teacher with a lot of patience and I really feel like I was getting the most out of my lesson and learned a lot! I highly recommend him!

I started taking guitar lessons with Barry shortly after I inherited an old vintage Martin that has been in my family for a while. I had not played in nearly 25 years. Barry's patience and creative spirit enabled me to begin really enjoying playing again. He actively listened to what I wanted to achieve and concentrated on those skills that have taken me to another level. After just a few lessons, I now play better than I ever could in my younger days. I highly recommend him for both a coach for experienced musicians and a teacher for those beginning to experience the joy of playing guitar.

Hello! I've been playing guitar for 5 years and teaching the instrument for about one year. I am able to teach students about chords, chord shapes, music theory, picking, rhythm, etc. I own one Fender Acoustic guitar with a capo and a strap, as well as a pick. Whatever songs or lessons the student wants to learn I always do my best to consider what the student will gain. Finally I just enjoy sharing knowledge about music, I will do everything In my power to ensure a fun experience.

About Rene
I'm 18 years old, currently a senior at Cypress Woods High-School who has been a participant in music since the age of 10. Music to me is something very important, so important that I love it when I'm able to share the experience with others. I believe that's what we need, some sort of medium to remind us who we are as people, when we die our sound will still remain on Earth. I have astronomical dreams of becoming a producer and if I can somehow gain financial help by also helping others with music that would be a fair trade-off. I'm someone who will make learning an instrument fun, no one should have to leave the experience of learning something because of the instructor. You're child can explain his/her goals and I will do by best to help in achieving those goals while still keeping in mind the technical aspect of practicing.
