Sandra G

Instruments:

I'm very passionate about teaching and love to work with all ages of students.  I had a studio in Mountain Top, PA for 25 years until our family moved to Utah.  I recently relocated to the Lehigh Valley.  I've performed with many orchestras and have coached many students to be able to compete and perform at Carnegie Hall for many years.  I take great pride in being able to teach on an individual basis, meaning I teach according to what the student needs and wants to be taught.

Michael B

Instruments:

I am a knowledgable musician who enjoys teaching classical guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar and musical theory. I graduated from Bloomsburg University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Guitar Performance. During my time there I performed in the annual guitar ensemble recitals, honors recitals and my own senior recital.

Munro D

Instruments:

I am a dynamic entrepreneurial musician and aspiring composer for Film/TV, with over 20 year record of achievement and demonstrated success in teaching, composing, arranging, recording and performing. I've attended "The Juilliard School" in NYC from 2005 to 2009 to further my study of composition and orchestration. During this time the Juilliard Orchestra Students performed two of my major works for orchestra at a reading in 2006 and 2009 with great success. I have been working in a music career all my life. I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. Many of my students that I have trained, that have gone on to pursue careers in music have remained life long friends, and I still mentor them in some way.

Mark S

Instruments:

Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use it to help you to become a great musician.    I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about keyboard playing but about music teaching.  As a result of these experiences, I vow to teach students music that is meaningful to them. Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to form bands, join music groups in school, or just find a friend to jam with. Not only does this raise the level of musicality, it is a great motivational tool.  After high school, I studied music at Colorado State University, where I focused on jazz performance, theory, classical performance, and double bass pedagogy. I earned a bachelor of arts in music from Colorado State University in 2000.  My home studio is fully equipped with guitars, basses, keyboards, amps, and digital recording equipment. I am highly knowledgeable in audio and midi recording through the use of recording software.  *** Studio Equipment *** 20 x 20 room...equipped with the following instruments: piano---Casio 88 key fully weighted, electric guitar, electric bass, 4 amplifiers,  2 computers, and recording software *** Travel Equipment *** If my students need an instrument to play, I will provide all the necessary equipment for them.  *** Specialties *** I teach rock, blues, jazz, classical, and pop 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 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.
Young children will start out by learning how to fret notes with the left hand, and how to pluck or strum the strings with their right hand. This will allow them to play simple, familiar songs on one string. Students will start learning to read music, and eventually learn how to play the common open guitar chords. Once students are more familiar with the guitar fretboard, they can start learning barre chords, moveable scales, and be introduced to music theory. Advanced students might decide to study classical guitar repertoire, rock or blues solos, or even jazz improvization.
For students looking to start learning to play the guitar, we recommend that you do so with a specific goal in mind. This goal may be to learn to play your favorite song, learn to write music or brush up on your current skills. Whatever your goals may be, our experienced teachers can help you achieve them with their expert knowledge. For beginners, learning to co-ordinate the various new techniques you will be learning can take time - usually a few months. To maximize your progression, there is no better way than regular lessons and practice.
At Musika, we offer guitar lessons to students as young as 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical guitar will be the easiest and most comfortable model for younger students to play, and at this age students will be learning to play simple tunes on the top strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing along to their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age range, 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.
