Featured Auburn Guitar Teachers

Michael M

Instruments:

I am a composer, songwriter, piano player, recording artist, and producer.  I have released ten CDs since the year 2000.  Two of the releases are with the Monroe Institute which makes Hemi-Sync music to balance brain wave patterns and assist with learning, focus, creativity, and ADD.    I also play piano for dance classes, both modern and ballet, at the University of Washington, and other dance schools in the Puget Sound Area.   

Ryan M

Instruments:

Greetings!   My name is Ryan and I have been involved in music for over 13 years now. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2010, I moved to Seattle to pursue my career in music. Since I've moved I have been teaching lessons, performing in musicals, performing at weddings/events, and playing with my rock band all over the country.    I love and respect every type of music there is but I have always excelled and found myself happiest in Rock. Some of the bands that have influenced me in music and that I still listen to to this day are: Blink 182, Yellowcard, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, No Doubt, Metallica, and such hard rock acts as Periphery, A Day To Remember, and many others.    It is hard to get a good gauge on who I am as a person through a website so please feel free to call or message me for more information or, of course, book a lesson!   Best,     -Ryan M. 

Matthew B

I currently live in Brooklyn and play with my band, The Dogs. I've played on six records over the last two years including one that was named the fourth best free album of 2011.

Andrew L

Instruments:

I am a recent graduate of Northwest University, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Contemporary Music Industry.  I have played guitar for over 10 years and have taught for over 5 years, while teaching over 10 students.  Since beginning to play guitar, I have done a lot of writing and learning about music.  I have studied music theory for over 4 years and work as a sound tech in a few different venues.  I have also performed in multiple venues and still perform from time to time.

Geoffrey W

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and enthusiatic instructor that loves sharing the gift of music with my students. I have been working professionally as a musician since I was thirteen years old playing in acoustic acts, jazz big bands, cover bands, original rock acts, jazz combos and doing solo classical guitar performances. I've toured, done countless studio sessions and have played in orchestra pits for musicals. One of my favorite performances was with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute Orchestra in 1987 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.  My other passion is composing and producing in every style imaginable and I have music in shows with NBC Universal and A&E as well as countless corporate and industrial projects. I love integrating my compositional backhround into my intrument lessons when appropriate to give my students a broader knowledge of how to use their instrument(s) and possibly compose themselves. I'm very patient and comfortable working with the novice to the most advanced players.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

For younger students, it is recommended that they use a half size, or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Provided they are able to hold it comfortably, older students may wish to start out on an electric guitar. A reasonable price for a new student model guitar would be between $150 - $200, although for electric guitar players, an amplifier and guitar leads/cables will need to be bought separately at an extra cost. The higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. This will make learning and playing more enjoyable for the student.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home guitar lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Beginners will work on core skills such as fretting notes, strumming chords, and playing simple songs on one or more strings. Once students know the basic open chords, they can begin to play their favorite songs! Teachers will cover sight reading and music theory, and can even teach students how to compose their own songs. More advanced topics might include jazz or blue improvization, guitar soloing, or classical guitar repertoire.
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. Our experienced teachers can help you to develop the necessary skills to attain your musical goals. Learning any instrument can take time, as you will need to develop your co-ordination and muscle memory in order to start playing chords, riffs and solos. The best and quickest way to learn these fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
Students can start their guitar lessons as young as 6 years of age. We recommend that younger students begin by playing a half size classical guitar with nylon strings, as the smaller guitar and softer strings will be more comfortable to play. 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. Around the ages of 10-12, most students are able to start playing a full sized guitar, and they generally become interested in learning to play rock music on an electric guitar.
