My son (and daughter for a bit) has worked with Aaron for many years. He is flexible and easy to work with. His easy going personality is a great fit for my son. Lessons are well organized. Aaron works hard to give kids many opportunities to play for an authentic audience, whether it's open mic nights at a coffee shop, or playing at a local festival. He also gets his students together from time to time so they can collaborate. I would highly recommend Aaron for guitar lessons.

We highly recommend Michael, who teaches our teenage son piano in our home weekly. Michael is responsive to what interests his student, gentle but clear in terms of expectations, very encouraging and flexible about meeting times. He was recommended to us by a professional pianist who took guitar lessons from him and thought he was great.

Great experience! Pete is easy to talk to and good at his job. We talked about my musical preferences and he chose songs for me to learn that he knew I'd appreciate. I'd for sure work with him again!

About

Have you ever wanted to learn to play the guitar? Let me introduce myself to you. My name is Earl. I am from Tennessee, and I have been a professional guitar player/instructor with over 25 years of experience and with over 6 years studying with a guitarist who played and worked with Les Paul. I have played both in the recording studios as well as on the road and have extensive knowledge of what it takes to make it in the music business. I have taught all age groups (five and up) from beginner to advanced, from homeschool students to high school and college students as well as seniors. I teach the following styles: rock, country, folk, jazz, blues, R&B, gospel, and CCM. I also strive to give my students the best learning experience teaching ear training and development (how to play by ear), the Nashville Number System, as well as theory and harmony. I keep the lessons fun and interesting, teaching your favorite songs from your favorite bands or singers. I have affordable lessons plans for everyone, with different options to fit your schedule: one-on-one lessons, group lessons, and -- don't forget to ask about -- my home lessons.

About

I am an experienced and formally trained instructor, guitarist, and composer. For some years now, I've played several concerts and have done some touring. There are also recital opportunities to be had.

Some music teachers are too strict and rigid. They teach only the "proper" classical methods and effectively taking the fun out of music. Others are too lax. They will show you how to play a music piece without explaining to you how it works. It is like learning to paint by numbers! Get the best of both worlds. We will begin with the fundamentals and learn to play, within reason, some of your favorite songs. Just bring a CD or iPod (vinyl and tape, too). My aim is to coach students to know the instrument, so that they can start to learn songs by ear, improvise and write music! Lessons are one on one in a studio space at one of St. Louis' best live music venues, Off Broadway, conveniently located near Arsenal and I-55. Private home lessons are also available. Experienced players who want to improve their songwriting, music theory, technique, and improvisation are encouraged to call. Let us see if I have what you are looking for. All materials are provided, and beginners are welcome! I charge $25 per hour, and offer discounts for monthly prepayment. Email or call me for more information.

About

I offer professional guitar and bass lessons that focus on technique, music theory, and ear development. I have been playing the guitar and the bass for 25 years and have been teaching for over 15 years to people of all ages and with different backgrounds. I also have a degree in music production and music performance. I was also featured in Guitar Player Magazine in the Big Boys Eight column for my instrumental music. Besides being a guitarist/bassist, I'm also a music producer and have produced bands and artists in the United States and internationally, who are currently selling their albums on music stores, like Amazon and iTunes. When you take lessons from me, I focus on your goals and do my absolute best to help you achieve them. Whether you want to play professionally or simply with your friends, I can help you get there in a short amount of time. I'm not the type of teacher who will just teach you songs. I can tell you with a lot of confidence that I teach everything, from scales and modes to developing chord progressions in all keys, soloing and figuring out keys of songs and any type of song and style. I believe that it is very important in becoming a well-rounded musician who knows it all, and I can help you get there if you give me a chance!
