Featured Douglasville Guitar Teachers

Norman T

Instruments:

I have enjoyed teaching and helping students of all ages for 22 years in achieving their goals in learning to play their instruments.  Educated at Columbus State University with a Music Education degree, I teach many instruments including piano, guitar, including Classical style, banjo, saxophone, clarinet and flute.  If you would like to start on the trumpet or trombone, I can help you as well.  I specialize in working with the novice musician, giving them a solid foundation in instrumental technique and musical knowledge.  I can also help the more accomplished player advance to the level he or she desires.

Richard R

Instruments:

I have been a professional musician and teacher for over 25 years. I have taught as an adjunct Professor of Jazz Guitar at Miami-Dade Community College. I have also taught as a general music teacher for the Broward Public Schools in south Florida and for the Cobb County District Schools in the Atlanta, Georgia area. I have studied guitar privately for 15 years with Vince Bredice who has published many books on guitar for Mel Bay Publishers, one of the largest music publishers in the world. I have done private studies in Early Music of the Renaissance period with Joseph Iadone a disciple of Paul Hindemith. I attended seminars in Jazz Guitar with legendary guitarists Joe DiOrio, Tal Farlow and Jack Wilkins. My philosophy of teaching is to help the student play the music that he or she wants to play and give the student a practical understanding of the guitar and music theory. I teach the skills that enable the student to apply themselves to all forms of music. Each student is an individual and is taught in a manner that inspires his or her personality.

Vinny I

Instruments:

I was born in the former Soviet Union in 1982. My family and I moved to the states in 1991 and have lived in the Atlanta area ever since. I have been classically trained in violin since the age of 3, and I also picked up the piano and guitar as I got older. I have been teaching music for 12+ years, and my instruments include: violin, viola, piano, and guitar. I also tutor in Music Theory and Music History. 

Felix G

Instruments:

I started studying music when I was 5 on violin. At age of 6 I added piano. At middle school I started learning clarinet and saxophone to enrich my background. A bit later I added guitar. I was taking the most comprehensive classes which included ensembles, chorus, orchestra, band, solfeggio and music theory.  I continued my music education at Music College on violin for another 4 years. My family moved to Israel, and I continued my education at Jerusalem Music Academy on violin and guitar, and graduated with Bachelor Degree in Music Performance and Education.  

Steve F

Instruments:

I have been teaching guitar for over 20 years. My teaching style is tailored to each student with an emphysis on making the lessons fun and interesting. I worked as a road musician for 15 years playing with many big name band such as The Classics IV and Billy Joe Royal and shared the stage with tons of professional road bands like: Blood, Sweat & Tears, Steppinwolf and The Allman Brothers to name a few. I love to teach guitar and especially enjoy working with kids and beginners,but can teach from beginners to advanced students.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Due to the large size of acoustic guitars, it is recommended that young students begin by playing half size or three-quarter size guitars. It is possible that older students use full size acoustic or electric guitars, as long as they find them comfortable to grip. There are many different student model guitars which are available, and can be purchased within the $150 - $200 price bracket from new. These costs do not include the prices of amplification or cables, which will be necessary for those wanting to play electric guitar. Bare in mind that higher quality instruments are often the easiest to play, and that ease of use is a big factor in how much a student enjoys their playing.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home guitar lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having guitar lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the guitar.
Young children will start out by learning how to fret notes with the left hand, and how to pluck or strum the strings with their right hand. This will allow them to play simple, familiar songs on one string. Students will start learning to read music, and eventually learn how to play the common open guitar chords. Once students are more familiar with the guitar fretboard, they can start learning barre chords, moveable scales, and be introduced to music theory. Advanced students might decide to study classical guitar repertoire, rock or blues solos, or even jazz improvization.
Many adults take guitar lessons! Your teacher will develop an individualized lesson plan relevant to your musical needs and goals. Adults taking guitar lessons for the first time can expect to learn a lot of new things, and have fun in the process!
Kids just want to have one thing when they are learning how to play the guitar - FUN! Our teacher will work with you to make it as easy as possible to start learning the guitar, but it does take a lot of hard work and daily practice in order to improve. Students typically begin by playing easy songs on one or two strings while learning to read music, and only then move on to learning how to strum chords and read chord charts.
