Featured Douglasville Guitar Teachers

Marcus P

Instruments:

Marcus grew up in various cities along the Eastern Coast of the United States. Throughout his school career, he sang in choirs and ensembles, which helped to shape his love of music. At the age of 15, Marcus received his first guitar, and has never looked back. Marcus moved to Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C., where he sought to study under Jay Brighton. Jay had a profound influence on Marcus in the areas of music theory, ear training, and, most importantly, the discipline of practice.  After studying with Jay for a few years, Marcus moved to Virginia Beach, VA where he learned from players such as Scott Mishoe and Jay Rakes. In the mean time, Marcus began playing in various bands and recorded his first album Martian Landscape. At times, you would even be able to catch Marcus on stage with Paul Gilbert.  Upon graduating from high school, Marcus wanted to further his knowledge of the music industry, so he moved to Nashville, TN and attended Middle Tennessee State University to study Recording Engineering. During his college years, Marcus continued to play in several bands; he played on numerous recording projects; he taught private lessons; he played in musicals such as Little Shop of Horrors and Grease; and in his spare time, he studied under professional session guitarist, Gwain Reifsnider. Marcus is now working on new material, doing various studio dates, working with different bands and teaching private lessons in the Atlanta area.

Richard R

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.

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

For younger students, it is recommended that they use a half size, or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Provided they are able to hold it comfortably, older students may wish to start out on an electric guitar. A reasonable price for a new student model guitar would be between $150 - $200, although for electric guitar players, an amplifier and guitar leads/cables will need to be bought separately at an extra cost. The higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. This will make learning and playing more enjoyable for the student.
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.
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!
Whatever your goals may be, our teachers can help you get the results you desire. Most adults want to pick up the guitar and immediately be able to play their favorite songs - this is possible with daily, focused practice. Taking guitar lessons will give you the structure required to steadily progress, no matter if you want to play jazz, blues, rock, classical, or any other style.
Students are able to start taking guitar lessons with Musika at age 6. For students this young, we recommend that they start off by using a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. Students in this age group will start by learning to play simple melodies using the top strings of the guitar, as will be able to progress on to forming chords and playing more advanced songs by the ages of 7-8 years old. Students are able to graduate to using a full sized guitar by ages 10-12, and will likely want to learn to play rock on an electric guitar.
