Introduction: Hello! My name is Shaun Dougherty and I am teaching all my guitar students online through Zoom.com and it’s working out great! I currently have students in 17 states - DE, PA, MD, MO, AL, GA, NJ, MA, VA, FL, IL and a student in Pakistan! (I live in DE) I am offering a free 20 minute ‘intro lesson’ to give you an idea of how I teach for private one-on-one lessons. Playing the guitar is fun and with regular practice you will be playing your favorite songs in weeks. Never even touched a guitar before? No problem! Can’t read music? No problem! There are methods to learn the guitar without reading music. I have taught students from ages 6 to 92. I have also helped several students get accepted into music college. My B.M. is from Berklee college of music so if you do want to work on more advanced subjects, I can help with that too. (reading, improv, composing, arranging and songwriting) Private lessons are 30 minutes and my rate is $25 per lesson. I teach Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 10-7:30pm Eastern Standard time. I am also offering 6 week group guitar lessons for ages 6-12 and 13-17. This is to get an idea about what playing the guitar is all about. The 6 lesson course is $75 and starts in June. Email me if you have any questions! Thanks, Shaun

I loved taking guitar lessons from Shaun. He is easy to work with, provides good training materials, and caters most of the lessons around the music you’re interested in playing. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone at any age.

Shaun is not only a talented musician but he’s also a great teacher. He’s very professional and was extremely patient with my ten-year old daughter. She enjoyed learning from him and always looked forward to practicing new songs. You can tell he loves what he does. I would highly recommend Shaun for anyone wanting to learn guitar whether you’re a beginner or seasoned player.
