Private Guitar Teacher

The main thing that I like to remind students of, when they take lessons with me, is that music is FUN! A lot of hard work goes into it, but the end result is always rewarding! I am a pretty laid back teacher, yet I still work to inspire my students to try their hardest and to be the best that they can be at what they do. It is very important to me that my students get their musical wants AND needs fulfilled.

In my lessons we will work on a variety of topics, including:

-Gaining a feel and command for your own instrument.

-Finding your SOUND: Helping you to produce the right tones on your instrument.

-EXERCISES: Scales, Etudes, etc. to strengthen the muscles being utilized while playing, and also to build up muscle memory and accuracy.

-Music Theory and Ear-Training

-Building your repertoire, which is necessary for performance.

-Arranging and Communication with your accompanying musicians.

-Exercising variation and creativity through improvisation.

-How to ...

About Makala

I have loved music as long as I can remember. I know its cliche© to say so, but it's true! :) For me, having parents of different ethnicity and siblings that were much older than me, I was heavily impacted by the wide variety of music to which my family members listened. The force of this crayon

My daughter LOVED her first lesson! She was smiling from ear to ear following her lesson and was excited to share what she learned. Makala provided tips to support at home practice. I am happy to have found such a wonderful teacher to introduce piano to my daughter.

All styles of guitar. Specializing in Rock. From very beginner to advanced shred. Using Popular songs from throughout the history of rock, from Chuck Berry to AC/DC to Ozzy to Nirvana and everything in between as etude studies to teach technique, theory, and scale theory.
Most importantly getting the students playing songs they enjoy within the first lessons and doing it properly with flawless technique and learning the theory behind it as well

I am 4 or 5 lessons in with Jared and I am truly and entirely thrilled with the progress I am seeing and the depth of guitar knowledge I have gained. Jared has a way of teaching that not only allows for actually playing right away but learning the foundations of knowing the guitar and music. I can see that this allows for not just playing "songs" but making music of my own. This is the freedom of "knowing" the guitar.

Headline: Jared is amazing teacher.
Jared has excellent knowledge of music foundations and music theory.
Knows styles and genres, knows not only how to play but create too... And how this style was born.
He helps to build habit to do things right - I'm talking about technique - or, in other words - how to use your hands!
Same time he's extremely patient.

I'd like to recommend Jared for everyone who want's to learn play guitar (don't look at your age), his teaching approach works great, because he is teaching you and adjust classes for you.

Phillip Z.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Online Guitar Teacher

Guitar students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are a part of basic music vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Chords are also basic vocabulary of the musical language.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the students' goals. However, I strongly encourage everyone learn to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. The student chooses what songs they want to play, guided by my suggestions; Jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, R &B - "How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"

A beginning student will practice all

About Phillip

In just a few lessons, she has already cleared a lot of obstacles for me, like addressing why was having pain in my hands and helping to correct that. Now I cannot wait every day to practice the guitar and I'm playing a song I've always wanted to play and it sounds recognizable after only three days. With more work on my part, I am sure that it will get better, and I know that Athena will keep giving me guidance that I can understand. And, she's fun!"
