I started taking lessons from John when I was 12 years old, about a few weeks after renting my first guitar. He was always very patient with me (being so young and not knowing anything about the instrument) and took the time to help me understand everything I could. He never rushed things, and made sure I played it slow and right until I worked my way to the appropriate speed. I always liked how he wrote out his own guitar method book so he could teach his style, his way. I was always real big into classic rock tunes, and he had plenty of those to teach me after I got the basic understanding of playing. He also gave me a huge appreciation for the roots/blues music that has made rock & roll. Today I am still a big fan of the blues. The best thing he ever did for me was when he taught me slide guitar using open tunings. This really opened my eyes. I had a cheap little open ended glass slide i had bought to try to teach myself "Free Bird". When i brought that in to learn slide from him, he said "NO, that isn't gonna cut it." He took me to the guitar shop himself and made sure I got the RIGHT glass slide, which is of course the coricidin bottle made famous by Duane Allman. I always loved that he made sure of that, no exceptions. Today I am 29 years old, still playing music with bands (was always my passion) and will never use another slide other than the good ol' medicine bottle. I highly recommend Mr. Hedger's services if you are serious about learning how to play the guitar.

I took six years of lessons under John Hedger, and I truly can't say enough good things about his level of performance and pedagogical approach. As a professional classical musician myself, I wouldn't hesitate to suggest John Hedger for anyone interested in guitar lessons. Few guitarists can provide both high level classical and electric/rock based lessons, and I can personally say that the quality of instruction offered by the John Hedger Guitar Studio is top notch.

I was looking for an experienced guitar teacher to help me with technique and rhythm. John has helped me immensely. His attention to detail is amazing. I wish I had found him earlier. John is a gifted guitar instructor. I highly recommend John.

Tim plays beautifully and is very enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of and ability to play guitar. He's a great observer as well as demonstrator, and explains concepts clearly. He's introduced me to artists to listen to and types of music (jazz and classical) I was not familiar with playing on guitar, which opened up a whole new world of love for the instrument. I was looking for a teacher who would help me specifically with nylon string guitar and pickless playing, no matter what the genre, and I found a gem. Whatever you're looking for, Tim will cater lessons to you. I highly recommend him.

My daughter Abby has been working with Tim for a few months now and just loves him! She actually gets excited about going to guitar lessons now. Tim's genuine interest in his students shows through, and he adjusts his teaching to meet the interests and abilities of his students. He is a great teacher and Abby has a great deal of fun playing the guitar with Tim!

I've been taking guitar lessons from Chris for two years, and I have learned so much from him in just a short amount of time. He has taught me a variety of music genres through both songs and scales. Chris is an exceptional guitarist and has an extensive knowledge of music! He excels at blending theory with practical techniques and methods. Chris helps me set weekly goals, and I always feel comfortable asking him questions. He is both encouraging and motivating. In addition, Chris has a very impressive music background--he recieved classical training in Spain, he plays in a few bands, and he has even recorded his own CD! If you're looking for a guitar teacher that will take you far, I highly recommend Chris Sullivan!

Mr. Futch is not just one of incredible skill on the guitar and other instruments but always is willing to help on anything. If I have questions in the middle of a lesson he will stop what we're doing and answer. He emphasizes making the lessons geared toward what the person taking the lessons wants to learn or play. He does not judge beginners and pushes you to excel! Overall very happy and feel like I am progressing quickly skill wise!

I'm a senior adult and taking guitar lessons for the first time. John understands my goals and has tailored his instruction to help meet my goals. I look forward to my lesson each week and learning new and exciting information about the guitar and music in general.

The video lessons are well done. You can watch them more than once to really master the skills being taught and, unlike private lessons, each individual session is 4-6 minutes which, for me, is just the right length to begin mastering one concept at a time.

About

I offer tutorials on playing the guitar for any skill level. Beginner to advanced students are welcome. I specialize in folk/rock/blues style.

About

Are you interested in piano lessons? I have successfully taught piano to all ages and levels, beginner to advanced, for 34 years. Lesson curriculum includes theory, as well as traditional studies in classical music. I also offer studies in jazz and improvisation. My private studio is located at Don Wilson Music Co. on Southland Drive. I also serve as the piano program director at the School for the Creative and Performing Arts, a public magnet school, where I have taught for the last 15 years. Please contact me if you have any questions, or would be interested in signing up for private lessons. The average run time for each lesson is 30 minutes, at a cost of ninety-two dollars per month (twenty-three dollars per lesson). My qualifications and performance experience: I have performed extensively throughout the Lexington area as a solo pianist in addition to performing in various rock, pop, and jazz ensembles. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree (1978), as well as a Master of Music degree (1990), both from the University of Kentucky. In the past, I have had the opportunity to study composition under American composer Joe Baber and pianists Jay Flippin (jazz piano) and Patricia Montgomery (classical piano). In addition, I perform with Angie Sanders and Marty Walker. Angie Sanders handles the vocal duties, while I am featured on piano and keyboards. Our sound is rounded out with the recent addition of Marty Walker on drums and percussion (who also performs with the very popular Johnson Brothers Band). As a duo (or trio), our sound can best be described as a mix of jazz, blues, some Motown, and hip contemporary tunes. The music swings with a fresh energy and yet can be laid back, with a nice, mellow groove. It is music that is easy to listen to and readily familiar, consisting of an array of classic, jazz standards, as well as unique interpretations of modern, pop music. The style is guaranteed to please a variety of musical tastes. It is energetic and lively and yet not overpowering, and can be especially suited to a more intimate setting, if required. Either way, Dave, Angie, and Marty can provide your establishment or soiree with a very entertaining mix of swinging, dynamic music and good times, guaranteed to please just about everyone. I am also available as a soloist, mainly performing jazz and pop standards on the piano. If your function or soiree requires a more relaxed and intimate sound, please feel free to contact me to discuss your event. My private studio location: Don Wilson Music Co., 275 Southland Drive, Lexington, KY
