So Many Cool Flamenco Tricks. I break them down for you one by one.

About Matthew
Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 25 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

In my musical travels I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
3.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
4.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Montrose
5.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime
6.) Update - For the last year I have been playing off and on with Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice". Season 3 - Team Blake. He is an incredible music
ian and I'm proud to call him and his manager my friends. His new album coming out is nothing short of amazing.

In fact everyone I've mentioned above are pro all the way and great guys as well. I"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important thing in a lesson with me is to learn while having FUN! I am a very laid-back teacher who wants to focus on music making you smile. We will choose material and a pace of learning that will keep you excited to rehearse and return the following lesson improved!

PERSONALIZE your guitar lessons by learning techniques used by your favorite artists in "their" songs.
FEEL FREE learning in a comfortable atmosphere where you can excel successfully as a musician!

Most All Styles/Genres/Experience Levels Taught - We go over everything systematically. Music Theory, Songwriting, Chords, Scales, Determining Key Of Songs, Performance, etc

After 3 to 6 months, you should expect to be playing some of your favorite songs and artists accurately

Be sure to check out some of my you tube demos. Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Sound Proof Pro Recording Studio, PA System, guitars, basses, amps, drums, recording gear, mics, mic stands, strobe & lights, fog machine, seating for parents.

Good assessment of child's starting point. Wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Great introduction into drum kit (we called it drum set in my day). At that point, needed to slow down and give child more fundamental practice time to soak in the concepts before racing on.

If you are looking for someone to teach bass by reading of sheet music, stop now and get back some of your precocious tim.

Matt teaches how you how to play by ear. I have yet to see a chord chart or any sheet music. He emphasizes timing, counting and not getting in the way of the train. if you want to become a musician who can sit in with others, have a good time playing, be ready for the stage, this is the place.

I gave this instructor two of my five lesson slots to see if perhaps the first lesson was just an off day. In lessons in the past I've been set up with some structure and learning materials. During these lessons, it was mostly just listening to a song on youtube to try to get the main basic components of this song. No sheet music, just a name of a chord (aka Em 7) that I kept trying to get the instructor to explain but to no avail. I asked if he could slow down and go over the first part so I could understand before moving onto another concept but I just got a "you'll get there, you'll figure it out". For the second lesson, he had a print out of guitar chords (I was there for piano lessons) but it was for a song I know and love so figured I could figure it out but again, it was too fast paced and when I asked to slow down for understanding of one part before moving to the next I was met with more "you'll get there". At the end of the lesson, he had me take a picture of the printed out guitar chords with lyrics....its was on a piece of printer paper and I couldn't even take that home? For $70 an hour I would at least like a piece of printer paper so I don't have to hold my phone with one hand while I play with the other. Chalk it up to a difference in teaching and learning style if you like but I felt like these lessons were chaotic and that I was asking for my learning needs to be met and they were not.

About Jonathan
About

I am a Florida native, active doctoral student, teacher and practitioner. My career includes performing and recording as a guitarist and teaching subjects such as music or math. Grade-school academic strengths in mathematics represent my enthusiasm for the subject. The math equivalent in music can be considered music theory, which is another passion of mine. I hope to take these well-rounded characteristics to teach and influence others with what I have learned in my education and career thus far.

Education & Teaching Experience:

I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts from Shenandoah University and hold a Masters of Music from the University of Akron and a Bachelor of Music from Stetson University (all degrees with a guitar performance emphasis). I also have a temporary teaching certificate for Music K-12 fro
m the Florida Department of Education. I have taught in Florida as a preferred substitute for general music classes, K-12. In college, I have given study sessions for music theory levels ranging from 4-part writing to post-serialism.

Degrees:
Doctorate of Musical Arts: Guitar Performance; Shenandoah University, expected May 2019
Master of Music: Guitar Performance; University of Akron, May 2014
Bachelor of Music: Guitar Performance; Stetson University, 2011

While giving lessons:
I ensure that every student receives fundamental foundation pertaining to the subject. While learning the basics, I advise that the student organizes their lessons and materials in a way that displays progress over time. With the proper knowledge, we can treat the heart of a subject with refinement in order to grasp its purpose and reason---whether its music or math.

Why?
My students have grown with confidence through a sense of accomplishment. Success does not only affect a person's well-being but can also impact other dimensions of their lives.

This teacher is impossible to get a hold of. Tried leaving several voicemails and text messages. He has a couple different phone #'s. Don't know which, if any, is the active # to use. No response from him ever. Couldn't reschedule because of this. Plus he lied and said I never contacted him. Now I am out a ton of money for lessons I wasn't able to use. Very greedy. I am not happy.

As I classically trained guitarist, there is a lot of technical crossover.

About Thomas
I am a classical guitarist who recently graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD as a student of Ray Chester. I began my studies at Peabody with a classical and jazz guitar double major with a computer music composition minor. I have performed in masterclasses with Manuel Barrueco, Sharon Isbin, Andrew York, Lorenzo Micheli, Matteo Mela, Gohar Vardanyan, Adam Holzman, Marcin Dylla, Matt Palmer, Pablo Sainz Villegas, Thibaut Garcia, Xavier Jara, and others.

In 2014 and 2015, I was selected to perform in the Peabody Conservatory's "Thursday Noon Recital Series", where I performed "Impromptus" by Richard Rodney Bennett, and "Sonata III" by Manuel Ponce. In 2015, I commissioned and presented the world premiere of the guitar duo piece entitled "Sol Negro" by composer Peter Dayton.

For summe
r 2015, I was granted a merit scholarship to Le Domaine Forget International Music Festival, where I studied with Bruce Holzman. I was a finalist and top prize winner in the 2015 ASU guitar competition. During my last year of study at Peabody, I also studied privately with Matt Palmer, who authored "The Virtuoso Guitarist: A New Approach to Fast Scales."

In 2016, I was granted a scholarship to study at the Aspen Music Festival under Sharon Isbin. While at Aspen, I was a teacher for the P.AL.S. Program, for which I also taught a masterclass. am now pursuing my masters degree under full scholarship at the Florida State University College of Music, where I am also a graduate teaching assistant to Bruce Holzman. During the summer of 2017, I was a finalist at the Southern Guitar Festival and Competition. I was also selected to perform at the 2018 TedXFSU convention. In the summer of 2018, I will be studying with Adam Holzman at the Brevard summer music festival under scholarship. I will begin my Doctoral studies at the University of Texas at Austin in the fall, where I will be studying with Adam Holzman.

I play and teach classical, jazz, rock, acoustic, and have extensive knowledge of theory, ear training, and guitar technique/pedagogy/fretboard harmony. I have had students who have been accepted to top guitar programs at the undergraduate and graduate level.

After 20 years of playing and a BA in Music, I know how to break down the guitar and teach it to anyone willing to learn. I take the 80/20 approach to learning guitar and will get you up and playing in no time. If you are tired of trying to figure out how to learn guitar online or you feel stuck at your current level, then I can show you the most effective and efficient way to get your playing to the next level. Lessons will teach you the following:

* songs you actually want to play
* how to read music and guitar tablature
* music theory tailored to suit your needs
* composition and improvisation
* performance practices and music history
* how to play solo pieces and jam with your friends

About Justin
Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and thoughts about how to learn music and guitar.

My journey with the guitar has taken me from the electric rock of Jimi Hendrix, to the shredding of Joe Satriani, then the otherworldly sounds and speed of Al di Meola, and, finally, to the broad world of classical guitar, Flamenco and world music. Over the years, I have compiled a set of skills, techniques, and theories from all corners of the musical globe to help teach students the fastest path to guitar mastery. My goal is to show you how to master the fundamental skills of guitar in order to
play in any style and ultimately create your own music.

Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

I have played guitar since I was 12 and been teaching in the Las Vegas area for the past 8. Studied formally in Contemporary, Classical, Blues styles & Improvisation. Have taken multiple seminars under Berklee International Network. I currently Perform Live with a band and have Professionally Produced albums on iTunes. I am a patient teacher good with beginners and challenging with advanced. I am also available

About J. Pablo
Pablo possesses a natural talent for music and is also academically accomplished. I believe Pablo was prepared for each lesson and his compassion for this subject was very high.
I've had a couple different private teachers prior to Pablo, but Pablo was the only teacher that excelled at improvisation and had a more methodical approach to musical performance. The first few lessons consisted of learning theory and how the music scales are related to each other. As the lessons evolve, we use that knowledge to start improvising. Even though I play guitar as hobby, Pablo gives me the motivation to get better as a guitar player. I hold him in the highest regard, and I would rate Pablo as an excellent teacher.

Based upon his knowledge and ability to play guitar, I believe he would be one of the best teachers to take lessons from.

Sincerely,

Al
len Yoo

To potential Guitar students and parents.
Pablo is the guitar teacher for my son. He makes learning very enjoyable. He teaches in such a comfortable way that you don't realize you are studying. He teaches all the basics and theory with the song of your choice. He has a very pleasant and patient personality. He gives the students confidence with lots of praise and affirmation. He loves music and guitar and he passes that on to his students. I highly recommend this talented teacher. June B.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pablo is a fantastic teacher who helped me push through the barriers taking me from a beginning guitarist to intermediate and beyond. He teaches in a very clear and direct style, touching on all the things that makes someone a well rounded guitar player, chords, leads, improvising, theory, tempo and creativity.

My lessons with Pablo weren't just guitar lessons, but music lessons, as he broke down music theory and how it relates to writing your own song, or improvising with a group. He does this in a way that's practical for guitarists, with mental shortcuts and tip that can only come from a seasoned guitarist / songwriter / all around good dude. Clyde B.

A major priority of my guitar teaching is to have students making expressive music every time they touch the instrument.

I begin by working on tone production on the open strings of the guitar, so that students are able to produce a full, beautiful tone on the first day. From there, we study left- and right- hand techniques in the context of real pieces of music, giving students the chance to apply the mechanics of guitar playing to the expression of musical ideas. At the same time, I work with students through progressive studies and warm-up exercises that have built-in expressive goals, so that they can learn to rely on their own ears to further refine their playing.

As I believe that a good guitarist is, first and foremost, a strong musician, I fold a number of diverse activities into weekly lessons, developing skills in music theory, ear training, sight reading, composition, and improvisation, all of which reinforce the acquisition of strong technique.

About Jeff
I’m a composer and guitarist, with 20 years of experience playing and performing on classical and electric guitars. I’ve given solo and chamber performances across the United States, with recent Seattle performances including Astor Piazzola’s complete "Histoire du Tango", the world premiere of Brian Cobb’s "Campfire Songs," and the Seattle premiere of James Bonney’s electric guitar concerto "darkLIGHTness."

In 2010, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in classical guitar performance and composition from Stanford University, where I performed solo recitals of Bach, Mozart, Turina, and Henze, collaborated with the Stanford New Ensemble on contemporary chamber pieces, and played lead guitar in the heavy metal band Full Metal Apocalypse.
I recently received a Doctorate in music composition from the University of Washington in Seattle, wher
e I’ve taught music theory, composition, and musicianship at the college level for seven years, and where I continue to perform with the UW Modern Ensemble, Inverted Space Ensemble, and Seattle Modern Orchestra.

A major priority of my guitar teaching is to have students making expressive, compelling music every time they touch the instrument. And as I believe that a good guitarist is, first and foremost, a strong musician, I fold a number of diverse activities into weekly lessons, developing skills in music theory, fretboard knowledge, ear training, sight reading, composition, and improvisation, all of which reinforce the acquisition of strong technique.

I teach a wide array of styles—including classical, folk, rock, flamenco, and heavy metal—and I look forward to helping you realize your musical goals!

I am a professional guitarist, vocalist, composer and teacher with a worldwide fan base. I graduated from James Madison University with Bachelor's of Music Industry degree. I specialize in Flamenco guitar and teach students from all over the world ranging in ability from beginner to professional. Look me up online, see me playing and listen to my original music.

I began my musical journey as the son of two professional classical guitarists. I started with electric guitar as a young fan of such players as Paul Gilbert and Nuno Bettencourt. In college, I was into Jazz and greatly influenced by Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin. They lead me to Flamenco maestro Paco de Lucia. I subsequently traveled to Spain and studied with the renowned Flamenco guitarist, Gerardo Nuñez.

With my unique mastery of the guitar, technique, music theo

After teaching student for over 25 years, I have a lot of experience in guiding students to reach their highest potential. I encourage individuality and a positive learning environment. I am available to teach from my home studio just outside the Washington, DC area or via live online lessons.

My goal is not so much teaching one how to play an instrument, but more broadly, to help one cultivate their own living musicality. My own areas of practice, study, and specialization are in free improvisation, sound art/Sonic sculpture, conceptual performance, and songwriting/composition. I've explored a vast number of different styles and genre. Jazz, classical, folk and bluegrass, spirituals, blues, punk rock, contemporary ghospel, electronic dance and ambient, to name a few... I love working with kids, I love teaching any age any skill level, I promise to listen, and fine tune our lesson to fit your specific personality and needs.

About Andrew
I've been practicing and studying music for nearly 12 years. Conceptual performance, free improvisation and Sonic sculpture for over 5. For me, music isn't just about playing an instrument. A musical practice is an opportunity for incredible self growth. Excercise for our minds and awareness.

I've worked with students ranging from age 3 to age 62 in the year or so I've been tutoring. I've taught piano mostly ,but am more technically proficient with guitar(electic/acoustic/classical).

I'm a songwriter and recording/performing artist, my style is very ecclectic and inspired by anything from classical, jazz, avant garde, to pop and folk music. I'm confident and versatile. Im comfortable playing or even performing with most instruments. It's taken alot of practice, reasearch, experimentation, and collaboration but over time musc has give
n my experience life and enriched my life and those around me.

I believe in the cultivation of a living musicality.

My approach emphasises the importance of process, exploration and discovery, as well as the study and analysis of traditional concepts.
