Featured Montevallo Guitar Teachers

David K

Instruments:

I began singing solos in church when I was 6 years old. I picked up the guitar when I was 10. At Montevallo, my primary instrument was voice and piano was my secondary instrument. I've been teaching professionally since 1981 -- 32 years as of this writing. My students have gone on to be professionals themseleves, but many of them just enriched their lives with music. As a performer, I've sung and played guitar in churches, clubs, local television and at weddings, funerals and I've perfomed in musicals alongside Broadway star Rebecca Luker in college. I've also been a church choir director for 32 years. I've taught in many settings. My current studio is in my home in Clay. I also maintain a studio at Five Mile Presbyterian Church in Roebuck. I also teach in students' homes.

Nathan G

Instruments:

Recent transplant to Birmingham – glad to be back in the south. Twenty years of playing experience, and 10+ years of teaching experience. Looking forward to working with you! I've played in churches for the better part of twenty years. I've also played in restaurants for several years, and at weddings and other special events. I can teach lessons in your home or at the Avon Theater (in Lakeview, near St. Vincent's).

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students will benefit by starting off playing on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. If an older student finds it comfortable enough to do so, they may wish to begin playing on an electric guitar. There are many different student model guitars, which can be purchased for between $150-$200. Additional costs will be incurred for those wanting to play electric guitar, as amplification and cables will need to be bought. Consider that higher quality instruments are easier to play, and will increase the chances of the student liking it.
Musika specializes in individually tailored, one-on-one guitar lessons in the comfort of your home. Whether your child learns in the studio or at home, the quality and content of each lesson will remain exactly the same. Home guitar lessons reduce the burden on parents to transport their children and equipment to their lesson, which saves time and money and helps to integrate lessons into busy work schedules. Musika prides itself on creating fun, engaging guitars lessons in an environment that students feel comfortable and familiar with - important conditions for their musical development.
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!
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.
At Musika, we recommend that the earliest age in which students start to take guitar lessons is about 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical will be the easier and most comfortable for younger students to play. In this age group, students will learn to play simple songs on the top strings. By the ages of 7-8, students can start to form chords and play and sing along to some of their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age bracket, 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 at this stage.
