Guitar Lessons

Vaughn has been teaching my son for awhile now and we are amazed with how he has progressed. Our goal for him was to learn to play the guitar and gain more music appreciation, but had no idea Vaughn would not only get him to this level so quickly, he instills a sense of pride in his students, and makes lessons fun! True genius music teacher. He's very skilled at what he does, and picks up or slows down the pace depending on how my son progress on different techniques, while always pushing just enough to make sure he is moving forward. Thank you!

Vaughn is an outstanding teacher. I recommended him to two of my friends after our first lesson. Anyone who is trying to learn guitar the right way should contact him.

My daughters have been taking lessons with Vaughn for almost a month now. They absolutely love it! Vaughn teaches remote lessons seamlessly via Zoom. Vaughn is an awesome teacher! He has a great way of figuring out the individual learning style and tailors the lessons so my kids can maximize learning. He is a very talented teacher, he is also very personable and passionate about teaching guitar. He is very patient with kids and a fantastic resource. Cannot recommend enough!

Guitar Lessons

Recently my girlfriend and I decided to take up guitar. Both of us had some, albeit limited, experience but it had been many years since either of us had picked up a guitar. I was given the task of finding a teacher who would cater to both our individual needs and musical tastes. I'm happy to say Vaughn is just that guy. His approach is simple, and straight forward regardless of your ability and his passion for teaching is evident from the beginning. As a former teacher, I realize that subject knowledge is only part of the criteria for being successfulin the classroom. In addition a good teacher must have the ability to truly "teach" students. Teaching is a gift.....and Vaughn possesses this gift. From the first lesson we established our goals and each week I see myself getting closer to achieving them. In short Vaughn has lit a fire in both of us. We are completely immersed in the learning process and happy to be Vaughn's students. I highly recommend Vaughn .

Guitar Lessons

Vaughn is a great teacher. I started lessons with him as someone who has played guitar for many years but wanted to take my skills to the next level and a few lessons in I can tell the difference in my playing.

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

    My pricing is set firm at my studio and will vary depending on the distance traveled for private sessions at student's residences.

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

    I look for what inspires you, such as pieces that fuel your interest to play alongside musicians you aspire to emulate. Your long term goals are just as important as your short term goals, so I make sure I have a clear picture of what you're looking to achieve. If you are a novice with a passion to learn, it's imperative to understand that you cannot become a pro at your craft while putting in the hours of a hobbyist. On the other hand, not everyone wants to become a professional, so as long as your philosophy aligns with your objectives, then you will accomplish anything you want in music.

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

    I have been playing guitar for over 15 years, and took formal lessons from some of the most incredible instructors in Houston. I have a background in music theory and guitar-specific disciplines via HCC and the University of Houston.
