Private Guitar Teacher

While teaching bass is my specialty, I've been teaching guitar for 4 years and have amassed quite the collection. The overwhelming majority of my students at the shops I teach at take lessons on guitar, so most of my time is actually spent teaching guitar. In lessons, we'll cover basic chords, scales, and rhythms, as well as some introductory music theory so the student knows why they're playing what they play.

About Tommy

My name is Tommy. I've been playing bass and guitar since I was 11 years old. When I was in high school, I won my school's Duke Ellington Jazz Performance Award my junior year. Around this time I began to work at my neighborhood's local lesson shop Let's Play Music! off of W Broad Street in Falls C

Private 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 Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching String Instruments like Guitar and Violin for Beginners and Intermediate level for many years. My students get to know all the parts of their string instruments like the guitar, from frets to strings, and learn how to tune their own instrument. After that, they will explore the fundamentals of music notation and find out how to produce clear, beautiful notes and chords

Enrolling in this course will take your musical talent to the next level. By the time you're finished, you'll be well on your way to becoming a skilled guitar player.

About Trevor

My name is Trevor Pietsch and I have been studying music since I was 10 years old. Although I started as a brass player, I found strings to be much more interesting and at age 12 began to take private guitar lessons. Later at age 21, I picked up electric bass and was lucky to have found some local

I have been teaching guitar for 10 years. I specialize in working with beginners, and love to work with children. Whatever style of music you enjoy, I want you to start learning songs right away and having fun. Then we can see how those songs are built, learning musiv theory to broaden your musical horizons.

About Kellen

I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in

Great teacher! Kellen has made me really excited about the guitar again.
Jon
Kellen is a great instructor. He explains musical ideas in an way that I qet quickly. I'll show him a song and he'll pick it up and teach it to me right away. I would definitely recommend him!
Susan
I had been playing guitar for a while, mostly learning songs and chord changes on my own. I wanted to take lessons to work on composing my own songs, and this is where Kellen really helped me. He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.

"Exactly what your looking for.

I took private lessons from Mike at Musicians Institute the entire year and a half I attended the school. I didn't have interest in any of the other teachers because I found out right away how talented and versatile Mike is! He's very soft spoken about it all but make no mistake, he knows everything that there is to know about guitar. I highly recommend him for beginner, intermediate and advanced players. He is also very knowledgeable with recording songs! He helped make one of my songs come alive by adding a very nice harmony over the original riff and made the song feel much better. he knows music theory as well as you could ask from a guitar teacher. From the modes to the circle of fifths and everything in between. He's also very flexible, since my lessons counted for a grade at the school, if I ever missed a lesson he would always make it up with me at a different time without any questions. I promise that you will not find a better teacher for whatever he charges, it's worth it! My $30,000 degree from M.I. tells me so.

I have been working with Josh for about four months now and the experience has been awesome. Heâย€ย™s a real talent and helps me make the necessary connections to understand music and the techniques to enjoy the learning process. Without Josh the frustration of learning a new instrument would have won out months ago and I would have quit. I am truly enjoying learning to play, and while I have a long way to go I am a long way from where I started in a short amount of time!"

"I took lessons from Greg when I was much younger say 12-13 for a year or more. He taught me a lot and had me playing guitar really fast, I always tried to do what he asked and he never ever got frustrated if I did it wrong or couldn't play what we were learning right away correctly!. Also all of what he taught me stayed in my head all these years some how and I kinda progressively got better and better!. I'm pretty happy with my playing and a lot of others are to!. Greg has something special about his students and teaching them to play the guitar correctly no matter what or how long it takes, he cares about you as a student. You get out what you put in ,but be patient cause it also takes time. But you'll see the difference later down the road that Greg was the right teacher for learning to play and the theory behind the guitar.....I recommend him as a great guitar teacher!. I myself take lessons from him again at the age of 38 , I was able to find him on Facebook after all these years and we do lessons via Skype, I'm a very happy student, very happy!. And I thank Greg Gladman for that!."

"I took guitar lessons with Tom for a little over 3 years. Not only did he teach me guitar, but I also learned bass, music theory, and music performance. Tom's general vibe is relaxed but professional, and he is good at keeping lessons fun but productive. I would highly recommend lessons with Tom to anyone interested in learning about music. I attended Berklee College of Music's 5 week summer program this past year and tested into both the highest music theory and musicianship classes, thanks to what I learned from Tom. He is very knowledgeable about not only theory, but also improvisation, reading, and performance. Anyone would be lucky yo have Tom as a teacher!"
