I have been playing guitar for 14 years and teaching for 7 years.  I started taking private guitar lessons as a teenager for several years and played in my High School Jazz Band along with other original rock bands. While in high school, I was able to study with popular Chicago rock guitarist Kevin M. Buck where I first learned music theory, which inspired me to be more studious with the guitar. I studied classical guitar in college and received an Associate of Arts Degree in music from Lane C.C. in Eugene Oregon. I have performed in rock/modern bands for 12 years as an electric guitarist and I'm also currently performing as solo acoustic guitarist.

This assisted me gain a vast knowledge of music, as well as procure performance experience. Finally, all these experiences enabled me to gain the effective teaching skills to conduct a cohesive group or lesson.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

The easiest way for a guitar lessons student to find out what kind of guitar to buy is to ask their teacher. Your teacher will know what local shops have fair deals, and which shops do a good job of setting up the instrument. Young students and beginners may find an acoustic guitar easier to play on and handle, while teenagers will probably want the power of an electric guitar so they can jam with their friends in the garage.
Save time by having a teacher come to your home! No need to pack up and transport your guitar between lessons, and no need to guzzle gas either. Our teachers provide a private, customized one-on-one lessons for each student, and your home will be both a comfortable and safe environment.
Students typically start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, how fret notes with the left hand, and how to strum or pluck the strings with the right. Teachers will cover sight reading, guitar chords, and basic music theory, all of which are needed for students to perform and understands the inner-workings of their favorite songs. More advanced students can work on jazz improvization, classical technique, or rock or blues guitar solos.
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. Our experienced teachers can help you to develop the necessary skills to attain your musical goals. Learning any instrument can take time, as you will need to develop your co-ordination and muscle memory in order to start playing chords, riffs and solos. The best and quickest way to learn these fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
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.
