Featured Kaneohe Guitar Teachers

Jacob K

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

Younger students who are just starting their guitars lessons will find it much easier to play on a half size or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. Playing on an electric guitar may be an alternative option for older students, so long as they find gripping the guitar to be comfortable. Brand new student model guitars can be purchased for around the $150 - $200 price range. Electric guitar players will need to invest in an amplifier and guitar cables, which will generate additional costs. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play than their cheaper counterparts, which will impact positively on the enjoyment and progression of playing the instrument for students.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home guitar lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
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!
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!
Students can start their lessons as young as 6 years old with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to comfortably handle a full size guitar around ages of 10-12, which is when many students become more interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric model.
