Ty was and continues to be a very impressive and fun guitar teacher. In the few lessons that I’ve had with him so far, I’ve not only built real skill but mental confidence in my ability to play. Ty is a super nice, understanding and intuitive instructor that wants to see you shine, but also pushes you and challenges you. He’s exactly what I was looking for as a teacher, and can’t wait to see how much more I can improve under his wing!

I've had a wonderful experience with Ty! He is a very patient, responsive teacher and does a great job listening to your needs and tailoring the teaching to you. Ty helped me get out of some creative ruts with my guitar playing and showed me how to keep growing and learning through a plateau. I can't recommend Ty enough!

I tried a few different teachers to compare and went with Ty. Ty was great - very patient and personable, encouraging but went at a reasonable pace, answered all my questions and followed up right away. I'm looking forward to having him as my regular teacher.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    SUMMER PACKAGE: Buy 4 lessons, get a 5th lesson FREE! ALL AGES, ALL SKILL LEVELS, BEGINNERS WELCOME!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    To start, learn as much as possible about the student and their goals/expectations. Then I can create a lesson plan that is fun, engaging, and designed specifically for that student.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've been studying the guitar since 1993. I've been performing professionally since 1995, and teaching since 2011. My education and training is entirely based on real world experience, both in performing and teaching. I also took piano lessons for 4 years as a child and have a comprehensive knowledge of musical theory, reading staff, and multiple forms of guitar notation.
