I understand that each person learns differently and has different musical goals. Because of this, I do not teach everyone the same. I do not teach out of any specific book or teaching program. Instead I design lessons around the student and their own personal style and goals. I feel that this creates a more motivating and driven curriculum and makes lessons more enjoyable for myself and my students.

I have been teaching professionally in the area for the past 6 years, and have been playing and studying the guitar since I was 11 years old.

Andrew is an excellent instructor. He is really knowledgeable in music theory. I took lessons for only a short time but was able to learn so much, because he used my knowledge of piano to help me understand guitar concepts and he focused on the techniques and songs that I was most interested in.

After a long time trying to find a guitar instructor with affordable rates and availability that suits my needs, I am so glad to have been referred to Nathan. He radiates kindness and patience, making it easy to quickly feel comfortable with him. He moves at my pace and shows interest in the songs I want to learn and my own goals rather than working from an agenda. Nathan offers Covid conscious in-person as well as Zoom lessons which is convenient. I highly recommend him and I am so glad to learn from him.
Brian
I've worked with Nathan as a songwriting collaborator on various projects in the past and I can attest to his talent as a guitarist and songwriter. Nathan is a very innovative composer and an incredibly kind and thoughtful person. I've had the pleasure of co-writing and workshopping songs with him and it's always an inspiring experience. I would strongly recommend him as a guitar instructor and songwriting teacher.
Adam
Nathan’s optimism and continuous support helped reignite my passion for writing and playing! It’s obvious that he puts in an abundance of time and energy into personalizing a lesson plan for you, constantly assessing (and reassessing) your goals and then laying out achievable steps you can take to reach those. He has never been discouraging or judgmental; on the contrary, I look forward to sharing my progress with him each week. He breaks otherwise daunting concepts into small, palatable portions, teaching and incorporating into your practice regimen seamlessly. Outside of musical theory and technique, he also has advice for a number of problems, whether it be regarding networking, stage presence, recording, or less music-based problems such as burning out or handling drastic life changes.

If you’re looking for a talented, empathetic teacher who truly cares about you and your pursuit of music, Nathan is my only recommendation!

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 ...

"Eric is a overall great instructor and taught me the basics in a two hour class.

Eric is amazing! He taught me to play the basic cords; proper handling including how to hold a pick, how to stand and sit with the guitar, how to place your fingers on the strings, and how to pick your strings. I learned all of these things in a two hour class. Overall, I think he is a great instructor for beginners, private, and group lessons. :D
Thanks, Laurenrj"

5 Common Mistakes of Beginner Guitarists

Buying your first guitar and strumming your very first note can be an exciting feeling - and that's only the beginning!  Pretty soon, you'll be mastering major and minor chords, impressing your friends and family with full songs and spouting off music theory.  And of course, next comes venturing on stage, sold-out shows and hearing the roar of the crowd, right?

The Best YouTube Videos to Learn Country Guitar

When you're learning guitar, it's fun to explore different types of music. Playing country guitar is fun and relatively easy to learn when you focus on easy country songs.
