It help him understand about the instrument and the sound when he play. He do have a sense of humor which help my son to have fun and be more comfortable. He also teaches other instruments, too.

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.

Extremely great teacher that has given so much improvement to my voice and skills!
Caroline
Great lesson!

Carla is a teacher who focuses on each individual student. I have observed the results of her students’ success in multiple music genres. I have studied with Carla for classical training, musical theater, jazz, and audition prep, and have seen positive results in each of these areas. Carla really works to make sure her students gain experience (she often arranges public performance opportunities at venues such as coffee shops, etc.) and she makes sure her students are aware of (and prepared for) upcoming auditions. Each lesson is followed up with an email from Carla re-capping the main points stressed in that lesson. I highly recommend Carla, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned performer.

Carlos definitely earned a 5 star rating! Bought lessons for a friend as a gift after I watched a couple of his YouTube videos. Before and after bookong, he was communicative and flexible on scheduling. My friend just took her first lesson and could not contain her excitement! Said she learned more in 45 minutes than she had in for plus years. She plans to continue learning from him. Thanks Carlos!
Charles W.
Coming from piano, the guitar has always seemed daunting to me. Prior to my lessons with Carlos, I had tried to teach myself songs/chords without much luck. Fortunately for me, Carlos turned out to be an extremely patient, friendly and competent teacher - I immediately knew I’d be progressing quickly with him! His qualifications speak for themselves, but I can’t recommend Carlos enough.

Profile_69900_pi_James%20Walsh%20plays
"James is an amazing artist and communicator. He brings a wealth of experience to the table ranging from singing, playing guitar, putting a band together, recording, writing, to performing. He also knows the difficulties of living the artists/musicians life, as both he and his wife are performing artists. He loves sharing these incredible experiences with his students, making them applicable to the student's situation.

Although my son sees himself as a lead for his band, he comes across a bit shy and unassuming. James has been great at addressing this and pulling my son out of his comfort zone so he can reach his ultimate goal.

Also, my son was extremely particular about who he wanted as a voice teacher. I thought I would never find one to fit the bill. James was a perfect fit. I anticipate we'll be in touch with him routinely as my son pursues his music career.

James is a fun, experienced, talented musician, who makes his students feel quite at ease. I highly recommend him as a teacher."
