Private Guitar Teacher

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.

Online Guitar Teacher

I've been playing guitar professionally for 9 years. Every lesson comes with resources to improve so that you stay engaged with your guitar throughout the week. I make the learning process fun and identify ways to help you learn your instrument effectively. My aim is for you to reach your goals and become a better musician!

First, I ask you questions about your goals as a guitar student (maybe you want to focus on learning songs, or you want to work on chords, strumming, or something else). If you don't have any idea, we simply start with the basics (tuning, strumming, knowing the notes of each string, simple chords, easiest strum patterns, etc.), and then move on to more complicated tasks, such as progressions or scales. What's most important to me is that we orient each lesson to what you are trying to accomplish.

Please note that I teach beginner guitar and do not teach music theory or sight-reading. Let me know if you’re interested, and we’ll schedule your first lesson today!

About Justin

I am a professional guitarist and bass guitarist with a passion for helping beginner musicians hone their craft. I've toured in China, and have played with some of the best musicians in Austin, TX. I've developed students of all ages to excel musically with individually-tailored development plans.

He taught them life lessons that they use today. He challenges his student to be the best they can be in school and out. I am proud to call him my friend and brother."

The session was 45 minutes long but it flew by and i was already looking forward to next week's lesson. Listening to him blend his guitar over mine as i played my assignment was awesome and inspiring. If you choose remi you will NOT regret it, he is a pro!"

"I have been taking guitar lessons from Andrew for some time now, and I must say that he is by far the best teacher I've ever had. He never rushes you out and he genuinely cares about your musical development. I started taking lessons from Andrew to prepare for my music auditions for college. He put much effort into teaching me all that I know about ear training, music theory, improvisation, and my technique as a guitarist. I accredit Andrew in playing a fundamental role in my acceptance into Berklee College of Music. Not only has he helped me get accepted into Berklee, but within a short time of taking lessons with Andrew, I soon had the ability to play songs that once were beyond my skill level. I never imagined that I would be able to replicate Toni Iommi's riffs and John Mayer's finger-picking patterns, but Andrew knew how to solve the problems in my playing that I was struggling with. I honestly never thought I would get past those problems. He knows how to teach you in a way that makes an intimidating lick, not so difficult to play after all. He also teaches you HOW to practice to perfect your technique, which improved my playing dramatically.
All in all, I feel so blessed to have found Andrew and been a student of his. He's not only a fantastic musician, but overall he's an amazing person - friendly, caring, funny, down-to-earth, encouraging, patient, and honest. I consider Andrew not only my guitar teacher, but a mentor and trusted friend. Going to lessons is something I look forward to every week. I cannot thank him enough for playing such a big role in my musical journey and impacting my life in such a great way. You rock, Andrew <3"

Great guy, great teacher. Took the time and focused on me during the entire lesson. Geared the lessons specifically for me and my interests and tastes in music. Took a personal interest in me as a person and encouraged me to practice and to explore all the different things I could do with my talent. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Very reasonably priced for all that you get out of the lessons."
