We focus on playing and writing music immediately, the theory is second, music playing and having fun is first!

I'm 31 years old and I have been playing music in bands of all kinds since I was 15. I practiced 3 years before I actually played with anyone and once I did I learned so much more. I don't want you to make the same mistake, try out my 30 minute discount rate and we can make sure you are having fun and playing music in no time, if you want to expand into harder lessons then we can!

My prices are so I can give each student my undivided attention, even the 30 minute may go on longer if the student is hungry. At these prices I can support as many students that really want to learn as possible no matter what level lessons they buy. I recommend the hour as it will allow for most growth.

About Joshua

Guitar is the most amazing instrument to me. I got really lucky because someone gave me an electric when i was 12 and I just played it. I didn't even know they had to be tuned at first! Once I started playing with people I learned so much so fast. I also went to school for recording and am able

He has a good ear and can help quickly with transcriptions. More importantly, he also gave some practical advice.
Ami K.
My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

Guitar is a beautiful and intricate instrument. There is much more to music and guitar then just theory and scales, there is an art that comes along with playing. Anyone can pick up and play a guitar, but not everyone sounds great doing so. I will teach you how to sound great while building your chops and skills.

"Ace professional with first class treatment

Tim is a phenomenal instructor! I have tried expensive videos subscription services and have spent hundreds of dollars on Skype lessons with popular YouTube instructors. In the year that I have been playing, one month of lessons with Tim did more for my playing than 11 months with the other methods I've tried. You owe it to yourself to give Tim a month of your time. He transformed my understanding of the guitar, has taught me to be self-sufficient with learning songs I hear, and has made playing exciting. Without being able to articulate exactly what I wanted to accomplish, Tim's uncanny intuition for balancing what I think I needed with what I really need took my playing to the next level very quickly. Nothing can substitute the depth of his musical knowledge, but more importantly, his keen sense of feeding me just what I need from everything he knows. Tim carefully plans out a lesson for me based off of my progress, has me take notes, and gives me ideas on how to improve before my next lesson. The most exciting day of my week is the hour I spend learning from a great instructor and a great human being. I couldn't be happier with my decision to learn how to play from Tim."

"Nils has been patient throughout all of our sessions and explains concepts/answers any questions well and thoroughly, adapting to the way I function, which is wicked helpful and conducive to our lessons. He’s knowledgeable and open minded, and not just technicality-minded, but artistically minded as well, and the balanced cohesion between the two is something most of my previous artistic subject instructors lacked, and what (I think) makes him ideal for anyone both inside or outside the box for whatever skill or knowledge they seek to learn."

"Blake is an outstanding teacher. I have over 20 years of experience playing guitar, but felt my playing had stalled. I did an extensive search for the right teacher, and found Blake. We talked the first time and I was impressed enough to make an hour-plus drive to meet with him. During our first lesson he identified weaknesses I knew I had (and try to cover up with some clever playing), as well as strengths, and put a plan together to get me moving, and it has.

Blake has done Skype lessons for every other time we work together. He has been great and I recommend him to all ages and players. He is approachable, kind, encouraging and effective. I have worked with many drum and guitar instructors over the years, and Blake is among the best."

"John is a hands-on teacher with a friendly, no-nonsense approach to teaching. He first looks at your expectations and tailors the lessons accordingly. My objective was to be able to strum chord progressions to accompany my singing aspirations, and he was able to get me to learn the initial chords quickly. His aim was to get me to be able to sing basic songs that I liked quickly, so that i could sustain my interest in learning chords and strumming.

I have had a great learning experience with John so far, and am looking forward to many more lessons with him.

Learning a few simple licks is a great way to get started playing the guitar! Even better, some of the most famous riffs in rock and roll are incredibly easy to play. Guitar teacher Matthew K. explains how... Anyone can learn the guitar, but it can be frustrating at first. Sore fingers and cramping hands can deter anyone from getting their first song down. This is why I compiled a list of five of my favorite simple guitar licks that sound great, and once you get them down, you can impress you …
