Silo is absolutely a great guitar instructor. He is always willing to work with our busy schedule and is very flexible. Silo also is teaching my son about music theory, along with reading music and the basics of learning how to play. My son finds his instruction easy to follow. He is always enthusiastic to teach which is so refreshing and just what my son needs. My son is even now teaching his dad a little guitar. Keaton also entertained the whole family at Christmas with a few holiday tunes he learned. So grateful to such a hands on teacher. Silo is top notch, personable and professional guitar teacher. I would highly recommend and have everyone interested in learning guitar that he's the best.
Edvin is a master in teaching. He listens and adjusts his lessons to my learning ability.
Quinn's Lessons was fun for my little kids. He is always on time and very passionate.
When i started working for angela and huan at thier restaurant MY PLACE, i told them about my desire to play guitar. Desire was all i had. i didnt have ANY knowledge about a guitar let alone alot of money. Anglea would meet me early before work and we started at square one. Listening to her and huan play would inspire and motivate me. its mind blowing how awesome they are! they made it really easy for me to learn with the patience they had for me. Not only did they teach me to play, but taught me to READ music. I can follow along in song books and play alot of songs! thier website www.guitarelements.com is a great tool i use for learning new cords or just reviewing a lesson. Thank you Angela and Huan for the love you put into my lessons and the continued desire to play in my heart!
He was quick to respond for starters, which was impressive!! He's rates are excellent, very affordable for weekly lessons!!! He's been so patient with our daughter!!! He's definitely recommended, we sought him out for my daughter Whois now learning to play guitar!!
I love to teach the basics of guitar, including, but not limited to, knowing the instrument, how to tune the instrument, and tune by ear if capable. I will teach further, if the progress and drive are there, like certain songs you might want to learn.
Here is a fresh take on learning to hear your inner song, so grab your guitar, warm up those fingers and bring a great attitude. James
I play guitar, I'm good at it, and I would like to show beginners what I know. I am passionate on what I do, and I would love to motivate others and inspire them.
I am teaching beginning guitar and bass guitar from starting to intermediate to all ages. I teach beyond basic chords, and I teach popular songs in which the students like and are familiar with.
I was classically trained on piano spending 3 years at the Paris Conservatory. At age 14 I fell in love with rock n roll and picked up the guitar, and never looked back. Music is pure. Learning is not only up to the teacher but also the student. If my student has passion and discipline, we will do great things together. I have a vast knowledge about music, composition, arrangement and songwriting...and playing different styles. Remember that an instrument is just that: An Instrument. The individual talent, focus, self discipline belongs to the student. Talent is a big one too and let's not forget the spirit of music.
After attending music school in Los Angeles, I moved back to Bakersfield. I have a lot of free time so why not teach what I love to do!
I love what I do and love teaching others what I love doing! A spirit of quality and excellence is my distiguishing factor, done with fun and of course a smile! An attitude of graditude will take you farther than you can imagine!
I know a lot about guitars, and I have seven years of experience. I have played as a jazz guitarist for four years, and I know a lot of theory.
I am currently teaching guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele. Lessons range from: * Beginning - learn to read music notation and applying what you learn to the fretboard * Intermediate - learn chords, scales, and finger positions * Advanced - learn arpeggios, modes, fingerpicking styles, solo structure/riffs, etc. All lessons are done at California Keyboards in my music studio. Parents are invited to sit in and attend the class with their student, if they prefer.
What I do is very basic and very simple. I create a bond with a student, and I find out what kind of music they are really in to. I start with the basics of teaching my students the knowledge of their guitar, so not only will they be able to play it, but they will be able to service it. Then, I teach them basic chords, scales, and pentatonic scales. Then, I move on to teach them how to read and write tabs, and once they have learned their rhythm and picking skills, I can even teach them to convert chords to notes on a piano. I can teach them to convert their material from their guitar to a bass. I have a passion for music and opening eyes up to it. I love to teach, and I have a great teaching reputation. I simply charge $30.00 for a 90 minute lesson, and the first lesson is free so that I can get to know my student.
I teach guitar to students at the beginning to intermediate level of playing depending on what he/she wants to play. I have a broad range of genres to cover. Contact me for details!
I am a Bakersfield based guitar player. I will help beginners and intermediate guitarist with chords and help them understand what they are playing.
