    John Hedger Guitar Studio

    (17 reviews)

    John Hedger Guitar Studio has been teaching Lexington fingers how to play for over 35 years! I offer a very comfortable step by step, organized approach to teaching guitar and offer all of the mainstream genres and styles of guitar playing: Classic Rock, Blues (my specialty), Music Theory and Composition applied to the guitar (My Masters degree is in Music Composition), some Jazz (basic chart reading, soloing over jazz changes, etc.), some Country and Folk stylings, plus my other long term specialty - Classical Guitar! However, no matter what your style of music preference is, for beginners I recommend 45 minute lessons in either the basic rock guitar or classical guitar direction. Students need to have some basic guitar knowledge and technique under their belts before mastering a specific style of music. There are no real shortcuts to playing any musical instrument, but in my 35 years of teaching experience I believe I can get a student to where they desire to go in the quickest amount of time...though it will take some time! I enjoy working with people and especially with guitar students! I really enjoy teaching beginners because I can get them off to a good start with solid technique and minimize the detrimental bad habits most self taught players develop. With more advance students, while I may work on any issues of technical problems they may have, and strive to "fill in the blanks" of things they may have bypassed in their previous learning - I really enjoy turning them on to new ways of looking at guitar study and opening up their artistic potential to reach higher levels of guitar playing!

    I teach Guitar, mandolin and ukulele to students from a wide variety of backgrounds, from complete beginners with no prior experience to advanced players honing their skills or preparing for College or critical auditions. At all levels, my goal is to help the student get the most enjoyment out of their learning and help them reach their goals. I help to develop the complete musician, which can include -learning chords and scales -Repertoire(learning songs, tunes, pieces) -Technique -Playing with others and advanced accompaniment -Ear Training and Transcription -Improvisation -Music Theory-Basic and Advanced -Composition I love connecting with students and seeing(and hearing!) them achieving their goals. Music is such a personal study and each person connects in their own way. My job is to find the path for each student and help to guide them through it

  • Skinny Devil Music Lab

    (12 reviews)

    Teaching: I was playing professionally prior to teaching, so my instructional method reflects the need for rapid acquisition of relevant skills. The SDML system focuses on building on strengths rather than merely remediating weaknesses. In addition, SDML certified instructors are very active in molding the curriculum to the student's needs, offer performance & recording opportunities, and offer a direct link into all aspects of the music world. Performing & recording: I have thousands of hours of experience on stage & in studios over the past 30 years playing a variety of styles, and I bring that - and the excitement that rushes up daily when I am reminded that I play guitar for a living (how cool is that?) - to the table for every gig. Seriously - I play guitar for a living! I can't even imagine a cooler job. As a guitar instructor, I get to watch people who have never touched a guitar develop rapidly into the guitar player they want to be; the musician they want to be; the person they want to be. To be a part of that is both exciting & humbling. As a player, I get to take part in a process that brings dreams into the real, and have it captured as audio, video, or by music lovers in a live audience. This is equally exciting & humbling. It is an honor to be a part of these artists' lives and try daily to live up to the trust they've placed in me. I smile constantly, every single day!

  • Lexington Music Education

    (11 reviews)

    I have 31 years of playing experience and 21 years of teaching experience, plus a bachelor's and master's degree in music. I have more education and experience playing and teaching than anyone in the area. Simply put I understand the subject matter better and I understand teaching better than my competition. Working with young people who are excited to be playing music. I have so much fun playing music with my students. Many times it doesn't seem like a job. I love watching a player develop from a raw beginner to an experienced student. I love watching my students become good and kind and skilled adults because of their love of music.

  • Jonathan Hayes Music Academy

    (4 reviews)

    I consider myself a guide more than I consider myself an instructor. Teaching chords, scales, and songs are important, but giving someone a smile after connecting to the music is my greatest pleasure. One of the most distinguishing aspects that makes my service stand out is my emphasis on deliberate practice, a practice philosophy and technique that can cut learning and practice time in half. I like this philosophy because most of my students work full time, school full time, or have full time family obligations and 4-8 hours of practice are not anywhere realistic haha. I love music and I love people. My job lets me talk to people about the craft that I love so much. I couldn't ask for anything better.

  • Gagetmon Guitar Lessons and Bass lessons.

    I am a very versatile and gifted guitar player I learned to play in Los Angeles where I was fortunate to play with the best musicians of several genre's. Rock, R&B, Smooth jazz and folk is where I excell. I won't waste your time I will immediately start teaching you to play songs of different styles. Seeing the progress students make. It is awesome to find students who are serious about playing and are seeking their own styles as I teach.

Vernon exit 62 (Richmond, Berea); on US 461 between Mt. Vernon and Somerset, and the Somerset/Burnside/Nancy area, usually on or near weekends, such as Friday or Sunday evenings. I'm available in the Morehead area through the week during evenings and in the Somerset area during weekends.

All of the great teachers I have had, who connected with me and helped grow as a musician, were my inspiration to start my own business.

My most memorable projects, and still ongoing, are my beginner students when they say "I'm playing music now!" The feeling of accomplishment is really great.
