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

Online Blues Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching electric and acoustic guitar for 20 years and I bring a very pragmatic style designed to help students learn usable tools and get up to speed playing good sounding music. I started playing music at 5 years old on piano and currently play guitar, bass, drums, and keys. I began teaching while studying for my bachelors in Jazz and started building the system I currently use to help students develop good habits and add building blocks over successive lessons to grow efficiently towards musical goals and see real progress. I teach all musical styles and ages and have a passion for helping people achieve their musical ambitions.

About Aaron

I am a lifelong musician who has studied Jazz and Rock guitar at UNCW and Berklee in Boston. Over 20 years experience on the guitar playing, teaching and performing has taught me many valuable lessons that I am passionate about conveying to my students. Music is not just a passion for me but a way

Online Blues Guitar Teacher

Teacher of 13 years, I've taught over 1000 students at this point. My first job was in a music store, I quickly gravitated towards teaching, and I've been doing it ever since. Whether you want to reproduce cherished songs, understand music and the guitar on a deeper level, or use the instrument as a way to explore who "you" are, I believe I can help you.

While I'm capable of teaching all levels and most styles, I have the most experience in the various forms of rock and metal. I believe that I am a very adaptable teacher, being that I am comfortable taking a gentler "guiding" approach with a student who wants the freedom to take each lesson a different direction, or taking a more rigid curriculum-grounded approach for a student who enjoys structure and continuity.

In any case, I'd say my greatest virtue as a teacher is the understanding that the study of music is a highly individual endeavor. As an art form, it leverages so many aspects of our personality and identity as human

About Michael

I've been teaching students of varying levels and interests for 13 years. Prior to 2020, I was teaching in reputable brick-and-mortar establishments.

I have been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now and always looks forward to our weekly session. Every lesson I've had with him has been fun, engaging and informative. He always comes prepared every week tailoring his lessons to help you reach your personal goals. Michael is an instructor with great patience and a deep understanding of music. He is perceptive of skills and weaknesses and will benefit anyone who wants to learn. I strongly recommend Michael as a guitar teacher.

Greg is a great men also a great teacher, when i first meet with Greg for my first lesson that i known i will be learning by the great teacher.
I had played guitar in the past many, many years but for sometime in my life was so busy working, and focus on raising family but i had to put away my guitar i bought 25 years ago. finally, now i decided to learn to play my guitar again and find Greg on take lesson.com and he has been teaching me just like i am a beginner playing but i am now so happy that i am on a good hand and Greg had been teaching me playing my guitar again. so far so good. Thanks Gregory
Craig Cirbo
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!.
Kimberly
He has taken his time with my son and they have made great success. He goes at a speed that is adaptable as my son progresses. Friendly safe environment to learn. He has so many guitars and other instruments to help the learning process.

"I came to Mich an with 8ish years of self-taught acoustic experience looking to make my first foray into electric/lead playing/improvising/soloing. After two weeks with Mich, my playing has improved exponentially. He's extremely patient and is more like your buddy showing you cool things than a rigid instructor. If you're committed to putting in the work and really wanting to get better, Mich the guy for you."

"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 had been trying to learn the guitar for a while and met several teachers along the way. However it was with Ahmad that I developed the interest and excitement you experience when you play a guitar. Ahmad is the best guitar teacher hands down. In a very short time I have been able to understand not just how to play the guitar but also music in general. Ahmad is a very enthusiastic teacher who keeps the momentum going throughout the session. If you are in the area and want to learn the guitar you should definitely pay Ahmad a visit."
