Featured Bristol Guitar Teachers

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.

Brian H

Instruments:

  I am a patient, enthusiastic teacher who enjoys helping my students become skilled in the art of guitar. I studied at The Hartford Conservatory and the Hartt School of Music, graduating at the top of my class with high honors from The Hartford Conservatory. My home studio is conveniently located near many shopping areas. I have performed in many bands with diverse styles of music. I have had 25 years experience playing in rock/pop bands, currently performing with country artist Frankie Justin Lamprey. I've performed several times at the Oakdale Theater, the Rock Cats Stadium, and have also done a number of radio and television interviews.      

Robert K

Instruments:

Nothing makes me happier than having the opportunity to share my love of music and guitar. Upon graduating from Skidmore College in 2000, I was accepted to Florida State University to the classical guitar program under the study of Bruce Holzman. I feel my decision to simultaneously work towards two masters degrees speaks clearly for my motivation and passion towards music. While I focused on music theory/composition for my PhD studies at Louisiana State University, I continued performing newly composed works by graduate composers for the instrument.

Annalisa E

Instruments:

I have been very fortunate to study under master musicians Sophocles Papas and Patrick O'Brien, and bring my passion for music to all my teaching. I work to understand each student as an individual and craft lessons to the student's specific needs and interests. Former students include successful concert artists and amateurs who have found great fulfillment in their guitar playing.  For children I offer my own method derived from over 30 years of teaching, uniquely suited to their age and level and a wonderful foundation for very solid skills applicable to academic success as well as their music.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

The age of the student will probably determine what kind of guitar you should buy. Younger students usually start with an acoustic guitar, either 1/2 or 3/4 size. Students 10 and up can usually play an electric guitar without too much trouble, and not feel overwhelmed by the extra accessories, cables, and amp. Most teenage students and many adults will want the sound of the electric - just make sure to talk to your teacher about what you need to get started.
Save time by having a teacher come to your home! No need to pack up and transport your guitar between lessons, and no need to guzzle gas either. Our teachers provide a private, customized one-on-one lessons for each student, and your home will be both a comfortable and safe environment.
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.
At Musika, we suggest that adult learners begin their guitar lessons with a clear and achievable goal to work towards. For beginners, this might be to learn to play a few of their favorite songs, or maybe to develop their own compositional skills! Advanced players may have a specific technique they wish to improve or to take their general playing to the next level. Learning to play the guitar can take time, and it may take months before you start to realize your goals. With regular lessons and practice, our teachers can ensure you achieve those goals.
At Musika, we recommend that the earliest age in which students start to take guitar lessons is about 6 years old. Students in this age category will start of by learning to play simple tunes on the top strings of the guitar and are recommended to use a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing and singing along to their favorite songs. When students get to about 10-12 years old, they may become interested in rock music and decide to learn on a full-sized electric guitar.
