Joel's music theory lessons are superb!
Rick
My first lesson went really well. I wanted to learn music theory as well as learn how to play.
Very knowledgeable and teaches in a way that is easy to understand.
I walked away from the first lesson with more than one 'ah-ha' moment and am excited to learn more.

My son just had his first lesson but he is already excited about what he is learning. Joel is very patient and connects well with his student. Looking forward to the next one!

I am a full time guitarist, songwriter, producer and touring musician! I have been teaching professionally for over 7 years and love working with beginners, intermediate players, as well as those who are looking to enhance their own personal songwriting and unique approach . From kids to adults, I look and draw from a curriculum that caters towards individual needs and goals and set up a weekly plan to enhance and cultivate a routine and daily practice surrounding musical growth. I grew up playing in the blues community, and a lot of my foundation is rooted in this theory, however I have learned a lot along the way and have a set of tools and roadmaps that accommodate differently for each age range and lesson plan. I have in I also play the bass, sing and work with electronic production to arrange for songwriters and live shows. If you are older in age and need any help on the business side of planning your trajectory or are wanting to grow some skills for taking music to the stage, ...

Online Guitar Teacher

I started teaching while in college - being able to share my passion for music is great! I graduated from Slippery Rock University in 2017 with my BA in Music Therapy. I am currently a board certified music therapist working in a local nursing home. My music therapy background allows me to approach lessons with a creative hands-on approach. I like to get beginners playing as soon as I can! I also include ear training and theory to round out lessons.

‚Äč I am a good teacher because I get it ... I remember what it was like to be learning piano. It's like it's own language! I am kind and patient and I want to develop a lifelong desire for music.
Also, I promise I will not poke your fingers with a pencil if you mess up fingerings.

About Amanda

I remember my very first piano lessons - taught by my mom because she wasn't convinced that piano was something I would stick with. I was so excited! Music was fun! Well not always fun ... the songs got harder and my fingers had to learn how to move in unnatural ways. Sometimes I would get frustrat

Amanda has been absolutely amazing. She has developed a curriculum tailored to my daughter’s current levels and goals. Amanda also has the rare ability to balance the need to make practices light and fun while cramming a lot of content into them.

I would give the highest recommendation possible to Amanda.

Great friendly instructor!

Matt continues to challenge me. His teaching methods are great - he doesn't just teach techniques, he immediately puts techniques to work by applying them to a song I would like to learn. He is also very good about explaining the reasoning behind certain techniques/habits.

Excellent. Didn’t need so much info about electric guitars since we’re just starting and have an acoustic guitar. Otherwise, excellent.

"I took lessons from William for approximately three years before work-life squelched my personal guitar playing aspirations. William was a wonderful teacher with whom I still stay in touch. He was willing to share with me as much theory as I could handle, in addition to a diverse exposure to blues, jazz, rock, and from time to time, seduced my ear and stretched my playing aspirations by having me dabble in some classical (fingering techniques). He also exposed me to various musical genres through listening sessions to keep me motivated and present to me endless aural possibilities to which to aspire. I believe I could take a life time of lessons from William and never get bored. He is also a subject matter expert in all types of gear: guitars, strings, and equipment. He, during my tutelage under him, had numerous guitars of all types, makes and models (which he would occasionally allow me to play). I miss my lessons and hope he will be active teaching, when I am able to retire, so as to resume my learning adventure."

I truly feel she can teach me how to be a better guitarist in a structured, positive and comfortable way.

7 Female Guitarists to Watch in 2015

Many dubbed 2014 "the year of the woman", and in 2015 women show no signs of slowing down. Whether you spent last year hooked on Taylor Swift's 1989, freaking out about St Vincent, buzzing in the Bey-hive, or feverishly anticipating Sleater-Kinney's reunion, women dominated much of our cultural conversation about music. With International Women's Day coming up this weekend, it's a great time to appreciate the talents and ferocity of these amazing guitar-slinging women! Check out these aweso …
