Dillon
Very clear explanations, and I left the first lesson with good goals and a handful of things to practice. Having the lesson online worked out very well and didn't take away from the experience or efficient use of time at all.
Levi C.
I am an adult beginner in my 30's and was a little nervous about starting my lessons. However, I have to say, great lesson! He really took the time to listen to what I wanted to work on and make recommendations. Then he was able to quickly spot areas for improvement and give corrections that were very relatable and easy to understand. I can't wait to keep working with Daniel.

Nathan is an excellent teacher for beginner guitarists. He is knowledgeable, patient, and relentlessly encouraging. He empowers me to play what I want to play and learn what I want to learn. He also goes the extra mile before and after each lesson to make sure I have everything I need for my personal practice. Without his lessons, I wouldn’t be progressing half as fast as I am.

What makes lessons with Jake fun is that he is very approachable and friendly. Jake has experience teaching kids in the classroom and also online- he is good at both! You can expect to have some fun while gaining a solid foundation in the basics and making progress towards your goals.

Jake was born near Seattle, WA, and was always a natural when it came to music. He taught himself how to drum at an early age, he started composing original music. Motivated by curiosity and passion, he also taught himself how to play guitar and ukulele in college, as well as the art of mixing and music production.

His interest in music took him to the quaint town of Bellingham, WA, where he combined the studies of music theory, recording, and creative writing, and he majored in Songwriting at Western Washington University.

Around this time, Jake began playing in bands and playing gigs locally. Local gigs led to regional tours, which in turn paved the way for national tours with the bands ...

Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and I would like to teach my students what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small part of learning to play an instrument. In our lessons, we would also cover proper music theory, and ear-training.

I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early ...

As a performer in a blues band, and producer of blues albums I find there's a special place in my heart for the blues.

Acoustic, electric, flat picking, finger picking, or slide guitar. Mississippi Delta blues, Texas blues, English blues, Southern blues, Chicago blues, and more.

Whether you want to be a weekend warrior who plays around the campfire, or someone who wants to study at a professional or advanced level, we can make that happen!!!! My unique approach to teaching guitar will have you playing guitar on the first day. No joke.
