Play the music you want to play. I often use a combination of styles to get you to advance in your guitar skills whether you are a stone beginner or advanced. I've been teaching for over 20 years and can tailor lessons to the individual using the music you want and my large repertoire ranging from simple American Folk through Advanced modern music. I can get you to accompany,solo and also read music too( if you wish). I have concise approaches to all matters of technique, scale work and arpeggios. You can be confident that you are coming to an experienced teacher/player who cares deeply about music and loves helping the student progress.

Billy is a patient instructor who is perfect for a beginner with some musical knowledge. I feel like we accomplished quite a bit in one lesson and I am looking forward to advancing under his guidance! #totallyworthit
Flaminia D.
I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!
Lynn W.
I cannot recommend Billy enough. I studied jazz improvisation with Billy for three years, and later returned to study Brazilian guitar and Piedmont-style finger picking with him. I had been playing for more than twenty years when I started studying with him and he not only helped me improve my playing technically and creatively (on electric and nylon stringed guitars) but also expanded my knowledge of theory and helped me develop new approaches to composing and arranging. I am still working with the material he gave me and take lessons from him whenever my schedule allows.

Hi, I'm Dwayne and I teach students of all ages and skill levels. What makes my lessons unique is that I create customized lesson plans that cater to your interests and desire to want to learn.

I have been teaching private guitar lessons throughout Colorado for over a decade and have brought my special training skills and methodology to many, many students within that time. I am an accomplished musician who teaches in the studio on Saturdays and provides in-student home lessons during the week. I am also a published author of many guitar instruction books that I am currently selling on Amazon & eBay.

I have a very unique and exciting approach that quickly gets students of all ages having fun playing guitar. I am left-handed (which makes learning from me easier) and my enthusiasm and love for teaching shine through with every lesson I prepare.

So whether you prefer to play for fun or professionally, acoustic or electric, are a beginner, intermediate or advanced ...

Guitar Lessons in Salt Lake City

By Megan C. - Salt Lake City Guitar Teacher

Hi, my name is Megan C., and I teach guitar lessons in Salt Lake City, Utah. Salt Lake is well known for its natural beauty, good food, and friendly people. Whether you’re a true guitar beginner, someone who wants to dust off their skills, a professional guitarist, or just simply a music lover, Salt Lake City so has much to offer you.

Salt Lake City is home to The Utah Symphony in the shimmering Maurice Abravanel Hall. Apart from their regular classical repertoire, the symphony has been known to have special guest artists playing jazz, classical, and even rock guitar. If you’re seeking musical inspiration and fulfillment, look no further than the Utah Symphony.

If you’re a jazz lover, (which if you’re not, come to these places and you soon will be) there are some great bars that feature live performances. Gracie’s, 326 South West Temple The Red Door, 57 West 200 S Maxwell’s, 357 S Main St.

And last but not least, the Gam foundation supports Jazz at the Sheraton, as well as well as Jazz at the Capitol Theatre. World-famous jazz musicians play every month and have quite a following.

Utah is home to many smaller music venues that attract big and small names in the rock, indie, alternative, punk, and rap worlds, and they’re all great places to hear live guitar. These are perfect places to go test your skills after a few guitar lessons in Salt Lake City with your new band or as a solo musician. In the Venue is a popular one, and it’s located at 579 W 200 S. They have a split level crowd, and the top level is a great place to goif you want to avoid getting trampled by teenagers! The State Room is at 638 S State St., and has both theatre style seating and a dance floor. Urban Lounge, 241 S 500 E, and a few other locations throughout the city, often host local bands.

Not quite ready for a full set? Open mic nights might be a better place to start. There are so many options here in Salt Lake, perhaps you like to check out a complete list of opportunities yourself. www.openmicsaltlake.com is a good resource to see which days certain bars and restaurants hand over the microphone to you. In my experience, Utah audiences are always warm and unintimidating and help you get the performing experience you need!

One of my personal favorite music opportunities in Salt Lake City are the many musical festivals hosted here. The Deer Valley Musical Festival brings big names to an outdoor stage at a serene grassy mountainside. Music lovers come from all over the valley to enjoy the location’s natural beauty and the relax with the music.

Redbutte Garden and Thanksgiving Point both have popular outdoor summer concerts hosting a wide variety of musicians. Visitors bring their coolers, lawn chairs, and blankets and set up camp to enjoy the warm Utah evenings and musicians of all kinds.

We’ll end our tour of Utah’s music opportunities by teaching you about the Twilight Concert series, presented by the Salt Lake City Art’s Council. This event attracts thousands each week during the summer by bringing in big names, and the only charge $5. The low price is enticing to everyone, so sometimes you have to line up for blocks, but it is well worth it.

So there you have it, Salt Lake is the perfect place to learn, develop and share your musical talents, and to become inspired by other creative and talented individuals. Check out guitar lessons in Salt Lake City and have fun getting to know the music scene!

Top 50 Intermediate Guitar Songs Everyone Should Know

The topic of intermediate guitar songs and solos is a tricky one, because it means different things to different people. Some players learn certain techniques faster than others, and what is advanced to some is borderline-beginner to others. Nevertheless, songs like “Blackbird” by Paul McCartney, “Can’t Stop” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and “Voodoo Child” by Jimi Hendrix are popular, time-honored classics that you probably won’t learn as a brand new guitarist. Top 50 …
