Frederick C

Instruments:

I am a music instructor and performer (as Min. of Music), with a passion for music, the fun in musicianship the a collaboration of musical instruments.  I began teaching myself at the age of 9.  Then furthered my understanding of music through high school, and college.  I believe music should be fun to learn, while leaving a proud feeling after you have acheived playing a complete musical piece - which will turn into performance (your chance to get audience to feel your passion with admiration).  I enjoy seeing complete groups come together in sync with each other as their music becomes the conversation.

Michael G

Instruments:

I work very hard teaching my students great guitar technique, which is crucial to becoming a good player. I’m always finding new ways to keep them interested in music/guitar and performing in general. I also teach my more advance students how to write music, which we then perform together in recital. Usually the song is named after them. We then share all of those songs with each other. Jack learns Brains’ Song, and Brian learns Dean’s Song, and so on.Every student is different and not all will be interested in becoming outstanding guitar players. In which case I try to concentrate more on their strengths (not mine) which leaves them feeling better about themselves and open to trying something new like song writing or singing. I try to keep the doors open for them to have music in their lives at any level. This is what’s most important…that thy have music in their lives and get to experience a great teacher.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is highly recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, on the basis that they can hold it correctly and with comfort. For between $150 - $200, many student model guitars can be bought from new. Electric guitar players will also need to purchase an amplifier and guitar cables, at additional costs. Remember, higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which will likely enhance the students enjoyment and development the instrument.
Taking in home guitar lessons saves you time, energy, and money. There is no need to pack up the guitar or amp to take them to the teachers studio, since a qualified, talented teacher can travel directly to your home. We make finding a teacher easy by matching you with a teacher who fits your needs and schedule.
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.
Whatever your current ability level, we recommend that students wanting to take guitar lessons have a clear aim in mind. Beginner students may wish to learn to play a few of their favorite songs, or an advanced player might like to work on a specific aspect of their guitar playing. Regardless of your goals, our experienced Musika teachers can help make them happen. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, achieving your goals will take time. Developing the necessary skills can sometimes take months. The only way to ensure you achieve your goals is to dedicate yourself to lessons and practice.
At Musika, we offer guitar lessons to students as young as 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical guitar will be the easiest and most comfortable model for younger students to play, and at this age students will be learning to play simple tunes on the top strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing along to their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age range, they are likely to want to learn how to play rock music on an electric guitar, and should be comfortable playing a full sized guitar.
