Featured Birmingham Guitar Teachers

David K

Instruments:

I began singing solos in church when I was 6 years old. I picked up the guitar when I was 10. At Montevallo, my primary instrument was voice and piano was my secondary instrument. I've been teaching professionally since 1981 -- 32 years as of this writing. My students have gone on to be professionals themseleves, but many of them just enriched their lives with music. As a performer, I've sung and played guitar in churches, clubs, local television and at weddings, funerals and I've perfomed in musicals alongside Broadway star Rebecca Luker in college. I've also been a church choir director for 32 years. I've taught in many settings. My current studio is in my home in Clay. I also maintain a studio at Five Mile Presbyterian Church in Roebuck. I also teach in students' homes.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students should start on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Older students could start on an electric guitar, as long as they are able to hold it comfortably. Many student model guitars can be purchased for $150 to $200 new. An electric guitarist will need an amplifier and cables, at additional cost. Remember, higher quality instruments are easier to play and give the student the best chance of liking it.
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.
Our guitar students will learn how to hold, tune, and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favourite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
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.
Young guitar students will learn all aspects of how to play their instrument. They will be taught proper technique, and how to read music, all while working at their own individual pace. Our teachers will be able to advise you on what size guitar is best for the student, but typically younger students need a 3/4 or 1/2 size guitar, while teens and adults can play on a full size instrument. Our recommended age for beginning the guitar is around 6 or 7, since a young child needs enough hand strength to be able to play well.
