Featured Kaneohe Guitar Teachers

Jacob K

Instruments:

I teach guitar, piano, and ukulele.  I enjoy teaching music for a living, and love working with students of all ages.

MIchael K

Instruments:

Michael first picked up the guitar at the late age of 16, and spent the next five years teaching himself how to play the instrument. He formally began study in 1987 when he enrolled at The Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) in Hollywood, California. The experience at GIT provided Michael with the opportunity to pick the minds of legendary guitarists such as Joe Pass, Joe Diorio, and Tommy Tedesco. In 1993, Michael began private study with world-renowned music educator Dick Grove. Their student-mentor relationship turned into a friendship that lasted up until Dick's untimely passing in 1998. Michael has additional studies at the University of Hawai`i and holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Technology & Music Education, and a Masters of Education (MEd) in Educational Technology. As a music instructor, Michael had provided group and private instruction through the non-profit organization Introduction to the Arts (ITTA), King Intermediate School, Honolulu Community College, Kapiolani Community College, The Hawai`i Music Institute at Windward Community College, and The Word of Life Christian Academy. He is currently teaching privately and through the non-profit organization Introduction to the Arts. 

Landon M

Instruments:

I moved to Honolulu in 2010 where I have been teaching 30-40 private guitar, bass guitar and ukulele students. Before that, I taught for 4 years from 2007-2010 at Xinghai Conservatory of Music in Guangzhou, China in the Jazz Studies Department after earning a Master's in Jazz Studies and a Master's in Music Education from University of North Texas in 2005. I have also been a guest lecturer at University of Hawaii at Manoa for their World Music Course on the topic of early African American Music Research. I have studied with jazz guitar guru, Corey Christiansen over the past 2 years and have performed locally at University of Hawaii at Manoa's Orvis Auditorium, Blaisdell Concert Hall, The Bishop Museum and Honolulu Museum of Art. I teach students of all ages and am equally passionate about my teaching as I am about performance. Please visit my website: http://www.landonmattox.com to listen to my 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.
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.
At Musika, we appreciate that every student learns at their own pace. As such, our experienced teachers produce customized guitar lessons specifically for the requirements of each individual student. Our teachers can design lessons for any student, regardless of their age, experience or ability. Some of the things students can expect to learn during their lessons are; learning all the notes of the guitar, playing and rhythmic techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, how to read musical notation and tablature, learning how to play a variety of different chords, such as open and barre chords, and music theory. Over time, as each student progresses, they will learn how to piece everything they have learned together, in order to form complete compositions. Students can learn to play their favourite songs, or even to write their music!
At Musika, we recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite song, write your own music, develop a certain technique or join a band, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! It can take time - often months - to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the guitar to a good level. The best and quickest way to learn the fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
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.
