About

Rick is quite skilled in teaching guitar. He has taught me theory, technique, and starting to read some music. I am 60 yrs old and new at the guitar. Rick is very patient and doesn't mind me needing repetition. I might add that I am working with a 3 string cigar box guitar which is a bit different but Rick has had no issues in helping me with this instrument. I highly recommend taking advantage of his expertise. JP

About

Absolutely brilliant guitar teacher--I'd recommend Ross to anyone! I took my two kids (9 and 11) for beginning guitar lessons from Ross. Starting on day one, I saw that Ross approached kids lessons differently than any other teacher, focusing on a solid musical foundation and lasting enjoyment. He never pressured my kids, established a sensible practice schedule, and made each lesson fun. They're learning basic music theory that will apply to any instrument, and will last a lifetime. After watching Ross teach my kids for several months, I was so impressed with his method that I decided to take a few lessons myself--primarily to better master the fretboard, as well as learn enough theory to play lead guitar. Although I've taken lessons over the years, Ross has transformed by playing in a simple, logical, and easy-to-follow manner. I've really mastered the fretboard, while learning fingering techniques to improve speed and accuracy. Ross's approach to guitar (theory, technique, practice routine, etc) is fundamentally superior to other instructors, and I eagerly await his first guitar instruction book. Bottom line: Whether children or adult, popular or classical guitar, heavy theory or simply learning a few guitar licks, Ross Trottier is an exceptional instructor. We're lucky to have him in Colorado Springs!

About

Taking guitar lessons with Andrew has been an awesome experience for me. I started studying with Andrew a few months ago with the hopes of learning jazz guitar, a style that was completely new to me at the time. Since then I have improved exponentially in my playing and understanding of the necessary theory as well as my appreciation for jazz music. Andrew is a great, enthusiastic teacher and his lessons are always well structured and informative. Also, Andrew is just a hub of knowledge. I feel like I learn more from him in an hour than I do during weeks of practicing at home. If you're looking for a guitar teacher, I highly recommend him!

About

Jon has been playing guitar for over 10 years and teaching it almost as long. He has studied a wide variety of genres, including contemporary and modern classical guitar, jazz, rock, and instrumental metal that each have a distinct influence on his own personal style. Sure fingers and an extensive knowledge of the fretboard allow him to improvise with ease. All of this, he brings into his teaching practice to give the student the tools necessary for him or her to become the best guitarist they can be.

I teach private guitar, piano, and voice lessons in the privacy and convenience of your own home in the Colorado Springs area. I teach by note and by ear. Learn your favorite songs! My piano method is based off of the keyboard and music theory classes I learned at the University of Colorado Boulder. I have taught for many years, and have sung with the Colorado Springs Chorale since 2009. I am a Christian teacher, and I love discovering and developing the gifts God has given you! I try to make music really fun and leave a note of what to practice daily so music becomes easy to play! I'm looking forward to your call!

About

I am an experienced guitar instructor, who is always interested in developing kids' musical experience and enhancing the music the world desperately needs. I love teaching kids, and I consider myself quite an exceptional guitarist. I have been playing for almost 6 years, but I have experienced some 10-year player's envy. Give me 30 minutes with any student and I will have them playing better then when they began. I do basic theory and then a focus on alternative and rock music mostly. My favorite artists are Dave Matthews Band, Led Zeppelin, John Mayer, and Miles Davis. It is $20 for 30 minutes and and $30 for an hour. The best part is I am willing to come to you within Colorado Springs and Castle Rock. Let the music ring.

About

I offer performance, vocal, guitar, and song writing lesson. I teach both acoustic singing (without microphone), as well as live vocal performance (stage performance). There is a different technique for both styles, and I work with both. I have over 15 years of professional experience, and I offer practical lesson. My students range anywhere from amateur to advanced. That informs you all of the professional stuff. Here is what differentiates from most other instructors: I am not just an instructor, but also an expert musician. I know that the things I teach work, because I use them. There are people who have a singing voice that is naturally developed. It is rare, but it happens. Most of us are not that way, and I had to put a lot of time into developing our voices. Whatever your skill level or style, I can help you get better. In addition to voice lessons, I offer guitar, song writing, and performance lessons. Performance lessons differ from straight guitar or vocal lessons because they emphasize the techniques used in live settings. I spent most weekends for better part of a decade learning how to be a performer, and learned from some amazing musicians. It all comes down to testing the waters, and that is why I offer a free lesson. I don't just want to give you an opportunity to test me out, but I have to see if I can benefit you as well. I give lessons because I love making music, and would love a chance to help you. Book a free lesson: you have nothing to lose but an hour. Contact me for a free lesson, and start making music! Pick me! Update 27.Feb.12 Thumbtack is connecting me with some students! There are still openings for lessons, but they are filling up. Please contact me if you're looking to develop your talent!
