Mark taught guitar to both my son and my husband in our home. Mark was professional and so encouraging in his teaching method. The thing that stood out most to me was Mark's devotion to teaching. He truly wanted to pass along his tremendous talent to his students, and was so proud of their accomplishments. Mark would be an excellent teacher for any student, beginner or more advanced. He rocks!

"I had guitar lessons with the Guitar Institute of Learning for a little over 3 years, and those years were the first 3 years I had in my experience of ever playing the guitar. I learned so much from my teacher. He taught me Jazz Standards, folk songs, and even things that were accommodated to my own interests as well! More importantly, I gained a life changing perspective from the songs, chords, melodies and harmonies that my teacher taught me. The concepts never get old. Guitar Institute of Learning does not just teach you how to play guitar, but how to practice it and how to become a great musician. It can be one thing to play an instrument, but to know how to play with other musicians requires a development of playing with others and applying your knowledge. Which is what guitar institute of learning can help you do. Everything I learned from GIOL literally changed my view and appreciation for music once I became more aware of the music world. I learned things that, once I looked back and realized what I was learning, I was so surprised and grateful that I was shown such great songs. I will always have a gratitude for the class and vast repertoire that they had opened me up to. As a musician, now playing guitar for 8 years, I would not be where I am today without those lessons. Knowing how important practicing everyday is, and finding how you define music will help you find an appreciation and motivation from and beyond these lessons." -Lawrence S. Abbott

Hi there, my name is Travis Haney. I am a guitar instructor in the Modesto,CA area. I picked up guitar after hearing cool and awesome guitar riffs and I knew i wanted to sound like that. You can say I was hooked. Studying music and playing the guitar has changed my life. Boost of confidence, patience, dedication and desire to learn were added to my character. The styles of music I teach are RocknRoll, Classic Metal, Blues, Proggressive, Alternative and Punk. Here at Haney Guitar my teaching method is to make learning music fun and entertaining. Being able to play like your favorite guitarists and write great music is not out of the question. I take practical ways to create exercises and song pieces that you can play. No complicated, boring exercises that you wouldn't practice anyway. We are here to make it fun.

Most clients enquire as to which model I teach from, or which style of instruction I employ, I tell them none, because no student is alike, and no one's talent is the same. I instruct for th purpose of learning. I modify my lessons and means of instruction for each student. Each lesson you take will be personalized to you as the individual, and the day.

About

Hello, My name is Richard Greig. I'm a guitar and piano instructor. I've received a strong classical foundation through piano and a strong jazz foundation through guitar. I've been playing piano for 15 years now and guitar for 10 years. I'm very passionate about music and I love to share my passion for music with others through teaching. I teach people of all ages. I can teach people who are just learning to play guitar or piano and also experienced players wanting to learn jazz, classical, rock, blues, etc. I charge $20 for thirty minutes and $40 for an hour. Lessons are in my music studio in Antioch CA. However, I am willing to commute to the students house if he/she lives relatively close to Antioch (approximately 45 minutes away give or take). If the student lives 30 minutes or more away from where I live then I'd have to charge a an extra $10 due to gas expenses. For more information contact me. p.s. I have referrals from professional musicians and amazing music professors. Thanks, Richard Greig

Have you always wanted to learn how to play the guitar? Well, let me help you with that. I've performed, recorded and taught guitar for nearly 20 years. My lesson plans can be customized to your desired goals. Do you want to learn that song that you just heard on the radio? Do you have an anniversary coming up and you want to learn something special? Did you just broke up with some dude and you want to experience that Taylor Swift song in the best way possible? Again, let me help you with that. It is $25 for a half-hour beginning guitar lesson or five (5) lessons for $100. Per arrangement, lessons will be in a studio or at home. Give me a call, and we'll set something up!
