I am a self-taught musician with 15 years of experience playing electric and acoustic guitar. My lessons begin by learning what inspires you as a musician, and working to take you where you want to go! Learning some of your favorite songs is often a great place to start. By learning a variety of music, you'll quickly begin to notice patterns & understand basic theory on what notes work together well. From there, you can apply that knowledge to improvisation, as well as songs you may want to write!

From those first few lessons, there's a million different ways we can explore the guitar together. With my lessons, I offer recording time in my home studio where you can learn how to write, record, produce, and mix fully arranged songs!

Reach out to say hi, and let me know what some of your immediate goals and questions are!

Specialties: Indie, Rock, Pop, Alternative, Psychedelic, Folk, Acoustic.
Open to students of all ages.

Mitch gave lessons to my son about 6 years ago (when Mitch still lived in St. Louis). He still picks up the guitar a few times each week to unwind, and often mentions things Mitch taught him while practicing.

Our son first time playing bassoon. Base on my son experience, he find Joshua to be very nice, patients, and explains a lot of information. It help him understand about the instrument and the sound when he play. He do have a sense of humor which help my son to have fun and be more comfortable. He also teaches other instruments, too. Highly recommended to everyone!!!!

I've been performing music for over 15 years. I've been teaching guitar for the past three years. I like keeping guitar fun! I will work with each student's individual needs and goals. I like all kinds of music and styles so don't feel embarrassed if you wanna learn a Taylor Swift song or Old Town Road. I like pursuing what the student is interested in while still teaching essential skills like strumming, note reading, chords, picking, etc. Reach out and lets chat about guitar!

About Luke

I grew up in Beaufort, South Carolina, picking up the guitar and bass at age 13. Before that, I had a strong interest in all types of music. After learning the basics on guitar, I formed a band in my tiny hometown, constantly learning and writing songs. For college, I went to Western Washington

If you are brand-new to the guitar, I'd love to jump right in and teach you a fun song right away during your first lesson. I like making this as fun as possible while you're learning a lot about the guitar. If you already know how to play, I'd like to help you gain a better understanding of how the guitar applies to basic music theory. I want to help you truly gain your independence as a guitar player. In my opinion, there are only two things that really matter when learning how to play the guitar: 1) Having fun and 2) Learning a lot. That's what I hope that you can attain by learning from me.

I would like to start out saying I’m a 66 year old beginner acoustic guitar player. Kevin was very good in assuring me that the guitar isn’t that difficult to learn and proved it in my first lesson. He makes you feel at ease and throughly explains the lesson.

During guitar lessons, I will focus on learning the instrument. Students will learn how to hold it properly, picking technique, scales, music theory, ear training, and reading.
The other portion of the lesson will focus on music that the student in interested in. The student will pick a song, and then we will learn it. While learning songs, I will point out new techniques, or reinforce ones that have already been learned.
This is a very fun way to learn a new instrument!

I luckily found Ahmad and here I am just a few lessons in with high hopes!
Ahmad is very organized & knowledgeable & most importantly patient! I was very nervous about taking lessons but Ahmad immediately put me at ease. He is very encouraging & he is great at what he does. I highly recommend him for all ages & all skill levels!"
