Private Guitar Teacher

As a guitarist, my primary concern is with your technique. I will show you proven strategies to help you play with power, control, and minimal effort. These principals set the foundations from which all world-class players are built. Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising your own.

Guitar is a fabulous instrument because of its incredible versatility. Together we will discover the many roles that the guitar can play including rhythms, melodies, fingerpicking, and solos. I will also help you understand the fundamental principles of music. This will take the guess work out of your playing, enabling you to make solid choices with consistent results.

Talk to you soon!

I customize my students curriculum based on their specific goals. I feel teaching students to play and transcribe songs and solos is my most important job. Most students come to me looking for structure so I try and provide a clear path for them to reach their goals. Although I love teaching music theory I understand that it is not for everyone, so I only offer theoretical principles when it is appropriate or asked for. I rarely use textbooks, but I do employ a lot of exercises and educational material when it applies to a lesson.  

For students with no prior music experience I use text books, and exercises to strengthen their technique, expose them to musical ideas, and give them a foundation of basic music theory.  After that is accomplished I move into a curriculum that is more personal to their specific goals.

Great first lesson.
Raahil J.
He pays attention to detail, is super organized with a definite plan and knows how to keep a student's interest. He is balanced and very realistic in his approach. He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him.

Online Guitar Teacher

Interested in playing the guitar? I've had over ten years of experience teaching the guitar, and even more time using the instrument in live performance. If you're a beginner, we can start from the ground up; we'll learn how to hold the guitar, how to tune, and how to strum your first chords. From there, we'll build the lessons around you-what you want to learn and the music you want to play! All music requires you to learn, but I believe your learning experience should be fun, so come into your first lesson thinking about the songs you want to play, because I'll have you strumming it in no time!

About Chris

A short history of my experience with music and education: The first instrument I learned to play was the guitar in 2001. I played the guitar on the worship team at FBC of Midway in Plant City, FL from 2001 to 2005. I began teaching private music lessons in 2003. I played bass guitar in

CHRIS was awesome!!! My first lesson was with a guitar that I’d had for years, he fixed the guitar so that I would have something to practice on, whilst he fixed the guitar he didn’t forget why he was there and went over notes and chords etc, After fixing my guitar we had time to go over the gchord and I pretty much had it as he was walking out the door. I’m very pleased!!!

Chris is a wonderful instructor. I took music recording lessons from him and it was very informative and relaxed.

Guitar is my main squeeze. I love to help people enjoy the instrument as much as I do. learn to shred a rock solo, fingerpick a folk song, or transcribe miles davis. learn to play what you hear on records without resorting to you tube instructional videos (wink). or if you are already an accomplished musician, enhance your ability to employ techniques like chord weaving on the guitar, craft better solos, write more sophisticated chord progressions, etc

Indigo has really welcomed me into the mucosal works wholeheartedly! As a beginning guitarist, she knows exactly how to pace my growth and installs the learning blocks, I as a musicians can progress on in my own time.
Being a beginner can be scary and maybe frustrating, but working with Indigo has helped me overcome such challenges!

Jennifer is great with my high-energy seven-year-old. She's very patient and she is able to make him engage. She also takes the skills he's learned in his music class in school, and builds his skills lessons around his abilities. Finally, she gives homework in a notebook that is clear and measurable, so he knows exactly what to do on his own throughout the week.

Also, first teacher ever that I'm not watching him play his guitar the whole time. He watches, listens, and gives excercises to learn and improve."

"Michael isn't just a great teacher and amazing guitarist, but he's a crazy good composer as well, which is a skill that can be difficult to find among many music instructors these days. If you're looking to get started from scratch or are a more experienced guitarist looking to break into that next level of playing, Michael would be a great choice as he's the real deal for sure. Great guy too!"

"I learn so much through guitar lessons with Judd! He gives a clear but flexible guide to practicing and reaching goals, and uses different modes of learning (written, verbal, demonstration, etc) to make sure I fully grasp the concepts.

His skill combined with his passion for musical expression makes the journey so much more approachable and fun, and it's contagious! It really feels like I'm taking lessons with a friend. Not to mention the dramatic increase in my musical library from this guy

Whether you are completely new to strings or looking to take your skills to the next level, live right next door or 5000 miles away, I don't doubt Judd would make your music journey much more amazing. Rock on!"
