Featured Bristol Guitar Teachers

Michael C

Instruments:

Over the past 40 years I have been involved with several different “R&B” bands and played various college circuits, also playing in local clubs and many private parties. I have had a wonderful opportunity to meet and play with many professional musicians in my career. My approach to teaching is to customize lessons based upon the individuals’ age, current skill level and their personal goals. Teaching them how to read music, phrase their sound and control the dynamics to produce a cohesive piece of music. I often record students during a lesson, which allows them the ability to hear their progress week to week and helps them to focus on the areas in need. Many of my students have credited me as having had a positive influence for them to continue their music education at college level, and they themselves have become accomplished musicians.

Barry H

Instruments:

For over 20 years, Barry has been active working as a producer, engineer, composer, arranger and musician, now working primarily in his home recording studio.

Lawrence R

Instruments:

I was born in Winchester Indiana on 9/9/1954, but raised in Middletown Ohio. Trumpet was my major instrument which I focused on in obtaining my Bach. Degree in Music Ed. from Miami University of Ohio, and Strings were my focus. I started and ran a string program in Branford CT since 1985, and, this is where I still live. I have a total of 23 years in public schools. I got my first string teaching position in Oconee Co. SC I studied Cello for 4 years at Kent State University from 1973-74, which is why I focused on string teaching.  I enjoy composing music, and arranging music, for fellow musicians which has become my passion, which I now do through the music notation program - Finale 20006b, and the sequencer program Pro Tools7M Powered, thru which I run thru my MacBook Pro, and my M audio I/o Interface board.

Kendall A

Instruments:

I have been helping people find their musical "voice" and learn to play for over 30 years. I am a master of the acoustic guitar, and play rock, funk, Jazz and bluegrass/celtic. I majored in tenor saxophone in college and toured with the A Band. 

Andrew G

Instruments:

Welcome to my profile. My name is Andrew and I am primarily a self-trained musician and performer of over 20 years. I began playing piano at age 5, guitar at age 7, drums and bass at age 16, and have been performing in bands since age 14. I've also become a collector of guitars and other instruments and musical equipment. I have had very minmal instruction of my own over the years however what I have been taught has been invaluable to me. In 2005 I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston for their summer program. This was an eye-opening experience as I learned various techniques and styles from some very talented and well-known musicians. I studied music theory and jazz improvisation at Newtown High School in Sandy Hook, CT before going on to obtain my B.S. in Justice and Law Administration from WCSU, graduating in 2013 (the backup plan every family member suggested).  Over the years I have been in many bands that include the following styles of music: Folk, Rock, Metal, Punk, and Reggae. I have completed 2 solo albums of my own work and since 2008 I've done all my own recordings. Currently I play guitar in the punk band Two Fisted Law.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized guitars. If they are able to hold it comfortably, older students could start off using an electric guitar. A good student model guitar can be obtained brand new for between $150 to $200. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar cables, which are essential for an electric guitar player. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student with a much greater chance to enjoy and develop in their learning.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
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!
Adult guitar lessons are tailor made for your own needs and skill level. We have many adult students taking guitar lessons for the first time. After a few weeks you will increase your finger and hand strength, which will help you achieve your musical goals.
Students can start taking their lessons as young as 6 years old with a half size classical guitar (with nylon strings), by playing simple melodies on the top strings. Every child learns and develops at their own pace, but by ages 7-8, students will be forming and playing various guitar chords learning simple songs that they can sing along to. 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.
