Gary W

Instruments:

I try to learn as much as I can from all my influences and express it in my own way. Music is a deep reflection of a person’s personality. It’s taught me Discipline, Patience, Commitment, and a deep understanding of myself. Music should be shared with others, so get out there, jam, listen to the greats and learn. There are no limits on what you can achieve if you dedicate yourself.

John H

Instruments:

I am a guitarist hailing from Central Florida. I love to just rock out to anything that sounds good from metal to country; if it sounds good I'll play it. I've been playing since the age of 6 and was heavily influenced by KISS, my favorite band. I play many styles of music including Rock, Metal, Blues, Jazz, Country, and Classical. I've played in numerous bands such as The Dream Lake Project, Dead Fall, OD, and with many show case artist such as Jimmy Bridgewater , Larry Black, and The Smokey Jackson Band. While in Florida I was the go-to guy for session work at Omega 4 Studio doing jingles and backing tracks for TV and independent movies. When not out playing or in the studio I teach guitar and do guitar clinics for JB Player Guitars. Right now I am working in the studio when I have the time making a debut solo CD, a slow work in progress called Electrica Acoustica Exotica. The title says it all; it will be a mixture of heavy guitars and catchy acoustic tunes.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is highly recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, on the basis that they can hold it correctly and with comfort. For between $150 - $200, many student model guitars can be bought from new. Electric guitar players will also need to purchase an amplifier and guitar cables, at additional costs. Remember, higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which will likely enhance the students enjoyment and development the instrument.
Musika specializes in individually tailored, one-on-one guitar lessons in the comfort of your home. Whether your child learns in the studio or at home, the quality and content of each lesson will remain exactly the same. Home guitar lessons reduce the burden on parents to transport their children and equipment to their lesson, which saves time and money and helps to integrate lessons into busy work schedules. Musika prides itself on creating fun, engaging guitars lessons in an environment that students feel comfortable and familiar with - important conditions for their musical development.
The most important thing is that students learn how to have fun when they are playing the guitar! It can be a challenge to master the basics, and it does take a lot of practice, but with the proper teacher, students can be playing their favorite songs without too much trouble. Topics covered during guitar lessons include: learning the notes, open chords, and barre chords, learning how to strum and pluck with the fingers and pick, and also sightreading techniques and music theory.
We recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind - such as learning to play a few of their favorite songs. When you start lessons, a teacher will help you unlock the skills required to reach your goals. Keep in mind that you might not be able to start off with the exact song you want to learn - it could take months of study and practice to learn all of the notes and chords required to turn your dream into a reality.
Using a half sized classical guitar with nylon strings, students can start to play guitar at age 6. A half sized guitar is easier to hold, and the nylon strings are softer on the fingers than steel strings. At this age, students will learn simple songs on the top strings. Around the age of 7 or 8, students are able to progress onto playing chords. By age 10-12, students can graduate to playing a full sized guitar. Often at this age, students want to learn to play various rock music, and will therefore want to play the electric guitar.
