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.

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

Before you buy a guitar, it might be a good idea to get the advice of a teacher, or a friend or relative who already plays guitar. Their experience about local reputable music stores may be invaluable and save you a lot of time. The first options are whether to buy a new or used instrument, and whether you want to buy an acoustic or electric guitar. Student models for each can usually be purchased for around $150-200. Used instruments do not always cost less, as some instruments retain their value; notably higher quality American made guitars like Fender or Gibson.
Taking in home guitar lessons saves you time, energy, and money. There is no need to pack up the guitar or amp to take them to the teachers studio, since a qualified, talented teacher can travel directly to your home. We make finding a teacher easy by matching you with a teacher who fits your needs and schedule.
Students typically start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, how fret notes with the left hand, and how to strum or pluck the strings with the right. Teachers will cover sight reading, guitar chords, and basic music theory, all of which are needed for students to perform and understands the inner-workings of their favorite songs. More advanced students can work on jazz improvization, classical technique, or rock or blues guitar solos.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the guitar, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favorite songs, join a band or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time - often months - to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the guitar to a competent level. The most effective way to progress with your playing to is take regular lessons and practice often.
Students can start their guitar lessons as young as 6 years of age. A half sized classical guitar will be easier to hold for young students, and nylon strings are softer on the fingers than steel strings. By the age of 7 or 8, most students are able to start forming chords, and can learn to play and sing along to their favorite songs. Often students will progress onto using a full size guitar by the ages of 10-12. During these years, students usually develop a taste for rock music and will want to learn the electric guitar.
