Featured Las vegas Guitar Teachers

Mark S

Instruments:

I became deeply interested in music as a teenager, taking up electric bass and then guitar when I was about 15.  I constantly practiced, learning as much as I could from everyone I could, working my way up to practicing 5-6 hours a day.  As a result, I progressed quickly and began taking lessons from a respected professional, learning a great deal before being accepted into the music program at St. Mary's College of Maryland. I can't overstate my love of music, and enjoy most if not all forms, including "classical" (especially J.S. Bach, Chopin & Debussy), jazz (especially Coltrane, Monk, Miles, Duke, John McLaughlin, Chick Corea and Weather Report), blues (especially Albert Collins, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, and B.B. King), and much "rock"/pop (especially the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, and King Crimson). I've comprehensively studied music in great detail, and also studied systems for understanding and teaching guitar in great detail, developing a scientific and ecletic system that expands on the proven CAGED system.  I specialize in simplifying the complex, and (also in) teaching exercises that simultaneously apply/demonstrate/develop knowledge AND skill(s). As a teacher, my preference is to teach "highly-motivated" students who want to become"really good", and I specialize in helping students "get really good really fast."  I have considerable experience at doing this, applying proven sytems/approaches and techniques -while adapting to each individual student's strengths, weaknesses and needs.

Instruments:

I grew up and went to high school on Long Island , New York, and started playing guitar around 12 years old. I began by teaching myself and playing in rock and metal bands all through high school. We played local venues and battle of the band in the city. My first teacher was the excellent eletric guitarist , Jeff Denny, a great, well known local player. He taught me joe satriani and yngwie malmsteen , solo shredding guitar riffs and also introduced me to Eric Johnson , a guitarist that capitvated me and got me excited about playing. Upon entering college I began studies with Michael Belajoas in classical guitar. This style was new to me , so many new techniques and sounds , it made theory fun ! Michael has been my biggest influence and mentor. I also enjoy reading and writing , and believe in using any and all resources available to become a better player. We should always keep learning !

More Information About Guitar Lessons

A half size (or three-quarter size) acoustic guitar is highly recommended for younger students. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, provided they can hold it correctly and with comfort. A good student model guitar can be obtained brand new for about $150 to $200. Electric guitar players will also need an amplifier as well as guitar cables, which will cost extra. Generally speaking, the higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. The ease of which an instrument plays is particularly important for young learners, as they will take to it quicker and enjoy their playing and practice more.
Need to save time because of your busy schedule? Why not try in-home guitar lessons. A Musika teacher can travel to your home and provide excellent quality instruction in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
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!
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!
At Musika, we recommend that the earliest age in which students start to take guitar lessons is about 6 years old. Students in this age category will start of by learning to play simple tunes on the top strings of the guitar and are recommended to use a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing and singing along to their favorite songs. When students get to about 10-12 years old, they may become interested in rock music and decide to learn on a full-sized electric guitar.
