I wanted to increase my repertoire with some common session tunes so I had some lessons with Mike Chole. Although we play different instruments I had a lot of fun and learned a lot at a very reasonable price with no long term commitment.
I really enjoyed taking guitar lessons with Ryan! He took time to really listen to and understand what my goals were and helped me work towards them, which is no small feat for a complete beginner. He explained new concepts in ways I could understand and I felt comfortable asking for clarification. He also gave me a variety of different exercises (chords, scales, picking, strumming, full songs) to keep things interesting and to keep me engaged. I also liked that he added in a little music theory (at my request) so that I knew why I was doing what I was doing. In all Ryan is kind, chill, accommodating, talented, and thoughtful, so I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
Tim was very good at explaining my lessons. He was patient and listened to my concerns and my lack of comfort in learning something new. He is extremely knowledgable and has helped me at achieving my dream of playing the guitar. I highly recommend anyone who wants lessons as a beginner or if you want advance lessons to hire Tim. You won't be sorry.

I teach the basics of music using standard notation and tablature. Proper guitar posture and hand positions are utilized to avoid injuries, i.e., carpal tunnel syndrome.
I will design lessons around your interests, goals, and needs. These can include full pieces, exercises, scales and arpeggios, worksheets, compositions, or improvisations (depending on your area of study.) I place a strong emphasis on Music Theory, Scales, and Rhythmic accuracy, since these are the building blocks of all music and can be applied across genres. Most importantly, I make sure that my students have FUN in their lessons. I want to make sure my students look forward to their lessons each week--hopefully you will even be excited to practice.
I have a BA in music, and over 20 teas of teaching experience. I accommodate all ages and all levels. I offer private instruction in guitar, ukulele, bass and banjo.
