Featured Akron Guitar Teachers

Adam C

Instruments:

I had a great guitar teacher myself when I was first learning and so I have always known how important it is to get started correctly.  I graduated with a degree in fingerstyle guitar performance and so I know how to perform and teach numerous acoustic guitar styles but I can still plug in the electric guitar and have fun rocking out.  Music is an endlessy enriching activity that will bless people's lives forever and I love to help people discover what the guitar has to offer them.

Egan A

Instruments:

I started playing piano when I was 10. By 15 I was performing at local venues throughout the state of Ohio. At 15 I also started playing the guitar; over the years I have added the bass, drums and percussion to my resume. I have had the great opportunity to meet and perform with many amazing musicians, as well as travel all over north America and Europe. I love being able to share my love and enthusiasm for music with my students and show all it can give them.

Instruments:

Isaac Winland  holds a degree in Music Performance from Marshall University, and now is attending the University of Akron as a graduate assistant.

Bryan R

Instruments:

I'm an experienced performer and private lessons teacher who is enthusiastically pursuing a mission to share the art of music!  I graduated from Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music in 2013 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Guitar Performance.  I'm preparing to attend the Cleveland Institute of Music, Fall of 2014, to obtain a Master of Music degree.   I've been fortunate enough to have gained performance experience with various ensembles including:  BW Guitar Trio with Composer Loris Chobanian, Duo Risch Reichert (viola/guitar), and band experience. I began private music lessons at the age of seven studying trumpet, and at eight I started guitar and bass lessons.  Music has been my life for as long as I can remember and I honestly can't imagine another path.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized guitars. For older students, they may want to start off on an electric guitar - but only if they find it comfortable enough to hold and play. For $150 - $200, a brand new student model guitar can purchased. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar leads, which are essential for an electric guitar player. Consider buying the highest quality instrumentation your budget will permit, as the better the quality, the easier the instrument will be to play. This makes learning and playing much more enjoyable for the student, and will therefore help them to progress quicker.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home guitar lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having guitar lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the guitar.
At Musika, our teachers create lessons plans that are specifically customized to meet the needs of each individual student. Our experienced teachers can develop the skills of a complete beginner, or help to take an advanced players skills to the next level. Students can expect to learn such things as; how to correctly hold the guitar, learning the notes on the fret board and how to tune their instrument. Students will also learn techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and will learn to play various scales and chords, such as open chords, power chords and barre chords. They will learn how to combine these elements of guitar playing to create or cover complete compositions, as well as learning music theory and how to read music. Last but not least, our teachers will help students to realize the joys and fun that learning to play the guitar can bring!
Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite tunes, learn to compose your own music, develop a new technique or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! Musika recommends that adult students begin lessons with a clear goal or two in mind, which can greatly help a teacher create a customized lesson plan just for your own lessons. By sticking to the teacher-™s lesson plan during your weekly practice sessions, you-™ll see faster results and have more fun while playing the guitar.
Students can start their lessons as young as 6 years old with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to comfortably handle a full size guitar around ages of 10-12, which is when many students become more interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric model.
