Private Blues Guitar Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

Private Blues Guitar Teacher

I have played at the house of blues multiple times (as a jazz combo, solo blues artist), and have over 10 years of experience playing blues guitar in rock/blues bands and jazz band at my high school and college.

You can expect to learn how to play both 12 bar and 16 bar blues, and the different chords/scales used in blues songs and improvisation. In addition, you will learn how to use scales to solo effectively, and the different guitar techniques many of the greats use to get that blues sound you are looking for. I have a home studio perfect for practicing blues that comes equipped with a PA system, mics, 2 electric guitars with amps, a bass/amp, and a drum kit.

Very nice and relaxed environment. Kory is knowledgeable and lets his experience do more talking than his words. You can tell he has spent his life playing music and his casual approach to teaching is good for beginners like me.

My son has just had his 1st lesson and he's ecstatic, he asked when he could take his next lesson; fortunately, Kory could get him in for another lesson this week.
I'm pleased that he's excited to finally learn to play his guitar.

What a patient, knowledgeable teacher. I really forward to a music journey with him.

When it comes to arranging and composing music, I sometimes feel like I fall short as a musician. I usually have a multitude of ideas and some sections written in my head but I struggle with piecing everything together in a coherent way, luckily I have had the pleasure of knowing Will for a number of years, and thankfully he has helped me in this area time and time again, and the finished product is always better than the initial concept. He has a remarkable capability to recive musical ideas from others and weave those ideas into a final arrangement without straying far from the initial ideas. Like I said, I've worked with him a couple times in the past and I'll work with him again every opportunity I can, because the quality of his work and the final product is always remarkable.
David
Will helped me learn the structure of guitar chords and scales while answering any questions that I had when beginning guitar. Throughout my lessons he gave me information about chord diagrams and scale diagrams while putting an emphasis on a guitar's fretboard layout and individual notes. This knowledge allowed me to progress and learn even more about how to properly play and enjoy the guitar. The instruction was done objectively, with attention to detail, and was a great experience.

I also look forward to learning more about musical programs and production thanks to Will.
Laura
Attentive to detail. Great at structuring lessons based on the student’s needs.

"I chose to take up the guitar later in life (after retirement). I did not read music nor did I feel that I had any rhythm. William was extremely patient with me and brought me to levels that far exceeded my expectations. William has a rare ability to be able to put a person at ease and reduce their tension level. Sometimes it was through playing and sometimes through playing. He was able to read my apprehension level very well and seemed to always choose the correct method. I moved away from the area and thus far have not found a guitar teacher with the same abilities. Regardless of age or ability, I would recommend William to anyone. Were it not so expensive I would gladly fly back to Phoenix once a week to continue my lessons with William."

"I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level.

Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary.

Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute.

I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly."

I'm German and booked just 5 lessons due to travel reasons. There was very vage input from me to Greg when we started (I always play the same; want to get new ideas; ...). Greg did not just provide a regular standard lesson. He focused and addressed 100%+ my desires and needs. Greg provided me very conrete and great input in several aspects to what I can do to improve my guitar playing. This was very useful to me and enabled me to move my guitar play forward.
