Thumbtack Spotlight

Personalized Guitar Instruction

(16 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

As a behavioral therapist, I love working with people, and I love music. I teach guitar at all levels. Whether you are a beginner or a performing artist, I get to watch you discover things you didn't know you could do. I teach using whatever music the student enjoys, allowing enthusiasm to stay high. Students progress quickly, and they enjoy discovering the depth of their talents.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I have played guitar since I was nine years old. I added the bass guitar when I was 15. I began teaching out of music stores and studios but decided to leave it and start teaching on my own. An establishment's goal is not to teach students quickly and efficiently but to keep them coming in for as long as is possible. Additionally, conventional lessons are taught step by step, from lessons to method books. I wanted to change that. I need to teach each student specifically what they want to learn and be able to do, in the way that they would like. It was such a huge difference!

    Best Guitar Lessons

    (18 reviews)

    I am 30 years old, and just started taking guitar lessons a month ago. I wanted to learn the guitar inside and out, and become the best that I possibly can. I am beyond satisfied with Mike's musical talent, passion, and ability to teach. He clearly is not just a guitar teacher, but also touches your heart. I personally was not just looking for a typical guitar teacher, but someone who would really play a big part in my growth as a musician, and he has done that for me.

    Guitar Lessons from Ryan

    (17 reviews)

    Ryan is currently teaching my fraternal twins the acoustic guitar. The lessons take place in his home where he has a studio. He is a nice, young man. He is very talented and has been playing for about 10 years and because of that, I know he is well trained. He is easy to get along with and takes his time. He really cares about his teaching. My twins like going to get their lessons. And the most important thing to mevis that they are learning to play the acoustic guitar! He is a really good teacher and makes them feel like they are experts when they just started to play. Thank you, Ryan. Keep up the good work!

    Personalized Guitar Instruction

    (16 reviews)

    I have taught music all my life. I specialize in guitar and bass guitar, and I teach all styles and all types of music, whether acoustic or electric. This year I received Thumbtack's Best Of 2015 Award for Guitar Theory Instructor, and I am proud to have been chosen. Over the years, I have developed techniques that streamline this learning process. If, for example, you are just beginning, I have a technique called "targets and adjustments" that allows you to learn to play chords and move from one to another easily. And you master this in weeks, not months. If you are someone who has played for some time but find that you're stuck doing the same things, or everything you play sound the same, I teach you to develop your own unique rhythm and strumming patterns for each song you choose to play. Using techniques such as "6 dead strings", you create your own style, without having to practice "model strums." Easier, original, and much more efficient. If you are an advanced guitarist or a professional, I can teach you how to give your performance structure and elegance. Using techniques such as "complimentary pattern evolution" you not only hold the interest of the listener, but take them places they did not expect to go. Lessons include sheet music, tablature, and a written synopsis of each lesson. I also record segments and examples of what we're working on when applicable and email them to you. This way you can listen during the week and easily be reminded of how a particular strum or pattern should sound. Whatever level you are at beginning to advanced you learn in "quantum-leaps". This is not a long term project. I can have you doing what you set out to do in a very short time.

    Reverb Lessons - Scottsdale

    (15 reviews)

    I was brand new to guitar when I started lessons with Richard. He is great at taking things at the pace you need and being patient with a new student. He is also very flexible with schedule and length of lessons, so you can work lessons into a busy schedule. His knowledge of music theory was evident in his instruction, and he imparted this information at appropriate times as I learned the practical side of playing. I enjoyed our lessons, as I felt like I made progress, but they were fun at the same time. Richard is very receptive of your input and the direction you want lessons to go. He'll focus on what you want to learn and the songs you want to learn. Overall, I was impressed with his skill and ability to teach, and would highly recommend him!

    Jam With Jimmi T

    (15 reviews)

    Jimmi is a joy. He is energetic, off-hand, and ready to move constantly. His knowledge of the ukulele, guitar, and piano was impressive and came out in his teaching, making me both trust him and want to know more. Further, his teaching style builds on each other and he is always ready with praise and critique to tell you that you're on the right track and capable of more. I had a lot of fun at my consultation and already feel like I'm better equipped. I can't wait for my first official lesson!

    Roger comes to my house each week to give my 12-year-old son acoustic guitar lessons. He is extremely patient and my son, actually all of us just love him. Within a lesson or two Roger had him doing scales and reading music, he's now playing songs and sounds pretty good. Highly recommend Roger to any musician!

    A2G Sharp Guitar Instruction

    (11 reviews)

    I took guitar lessons from Glen for around four years, and I am thoroughly satisfied with what he has provided me. Glen’s style of teaching isn't out of the book or one dimensional what so ever. He incorporates what you need to learn, while letting you choose what you want to learn, allowing you to keep constant interest in learning the instrument. Glen also pushes the student to explore different musical realms, allowing their musical mind to grow beyond what it would usually gravitate towards. Besides his vast musical knowledge, he is a very approachable guy, very easy to talk to, and he has a great sense of humor, which for me was relieving and made the lessons even more fun. I couldn't imagine having had someone else guide me on my musical journey. Glen opened my mind and helped me look at things differently. He is a phenomenal teacher, and I am extremely happy that he was my instructor.

    Guitar Lessons (Teacher)

    (3 reviews)

    Mitchel has been giving me guitar lessons now for 2 1/2 months and it has sparked both a new passion and appreciation for music. Having never played a guitar before, it has been a challenging road, but Mitchel has been patient, understanding, punctual, professional, and knows how to come up with creative solutions. We always start and end with a lesson plan so I know where to focus my time and we always have a goal in mind to work toward. I would recommend Mitchel to anyone looking to take up guitar.
