Private Blues Guitar Teacher

I graduated Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music and have been teaching all levels, ages, and styles for many years. My students have ranged in age from six years old to eighties. With children, I develop a special rapport that keeps students interested in their lessons. With intermediate and advanced students, I evaluate each student's strengths and weaknesses and customize their lessons to help them gain a thorough knowledge of their instrument and the musical concepts involved in whatever style they desire to play. I believe in teaching not only the hows but also the whys of playing. Proper technique is vital to long term success. I start beginners correctly and coach intermediate and advanced students to correct technical flaws that keep them from attaining their goals. I have taught beginners through professionals, including Bachelors and Masters Degree students in Guitar, Bass, Improvisation, and Theory at university. Many of my students have studied with me for years. Music ...

About Peter

Music has been the focus of my life since I was 10 years old. I love teaching students of all levels, ages, and styles! I feel that proper technique is essential for students to attain their goals. I start beginners correctly, so they don’t run into issues later, and have a great rapport with kids

Peter is a master musician. We used him for years while he was in Savannah. Our daughter started with him when she was six. He is patient and engaging. Probably our favorite part about the Peter Hennes experience is his ability to connect with young minds at their level - I can appreciate this much more since our covid in-house learning experience. From a parent's perspective, Mr. Hennes is pleasant, flexible and a pleasure to work with - we asked for our daughter to focus on different things multiple times and he made it easy. He also turned into a family friend of ours during his time living in Savannah; we wish him the best!

I've been a self taught guitarist for over 20 years until I started taking lessons with Peter. I was interested in improving my technical & improvisation skills as well as learning music theory & harmony in relation to Jazz.

Peter has been a great teacher and is very knowledgeable about Jazz Theory/Composition and even simpler topics like fingerings or questions about gear.

I've only been taking lessons for a couple of months and already notice big improvements in my playing ability & understanding of music theory & harmony.

I highly recommend Peter as a teacher for a student of any skill level.

Peter has been teaching my 14yo for a couple years now and transitioned him from electric to jazz guitar, preparing him for auditions for the band in high school. My son as a freshman made the advanced band which I credit to Peter’s help in getting him up to speed through a pandemic! Great teacher!

Private Blues Guitar Teacher

Are you interested in being able to confidently play lead and rhythm parts in a band? Want to learn to write songs? Want to learn to just strum along to your favorite records by yourself?

I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. My aim is to help every student achieve their personal goals on their instrument within the context of a relaxed and patient environment that promotes a love of music!

I achieve this by:

1) Individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners.

2) Ensuring that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument and being able to play in a variety of settings.

I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. I ...

Caitlin
Chris is great to work with. He's patient and very knowledgeable. I like that he focuses on music theory as well as playing. His approach to teaching makes for a well-rounded learning experience. I feel more confident learning songs on my own and understanding the structure behind them.
Jonas
Chris is an excellent guitar instructor. After picking up the guitar after a 40 year hiatus, he has quickly got me going again. Chris has been really good at customizing instruction to meet individual needs. For me, I wanted to get beyond just strumming chords. After just a few lessons, I feel we are well on our way to meeting that objective.

Blues is the heart and soul of American music. Every note sings with feeling and attitude. Make your guitar become your voice through diverse string bending and vibrato techniques, open tunings, four note chord voicings, voice leading, learn to play independent harmonies using fingerstyle or hybrid picking. Study all of the great blues forms, learn to improvise as well as compose. All of my students will learn the most important skill any musician can possess- the ability to listen to other musicians in a jam session and compliment their ideas.

Jeegar P.
Jason is a fantastic teacher and really easy to work with. We focused on fundamentals and understanding the fret board. This was a new approach for me as he weeded out bad habits and taught me proper form. It took a month or so, but when i was able to develop an ease with the fret board and spacial awareness with my strumming hand, I was able to navigate the guitar with so much more confidence.

Highly recommend working with Jason as he is patient and wants you to become a strong musician instead of learning a few songs really well. Also, he is upbeat and provides good feedback so you continue to develop and grow.
Brenden
I've been going to Jason for a few months now and I have significantly improved my playing ability and increased my music knowledge. Lessons are tailored to what I want to learn and there has been noticeable improvement even over a short period of time.

He is really patient and kind, and he got playing songs in days.

I personally love guitar so much because of how its able to help me convey my thoughts and emotions. Whether it be a song I love from a favorite artist or one I'm able to write myself; there's so much therapeutic value in being able to convey how you're feeling through song and playing music. So my passion is helping others do just that! I want to help you find your voice through music whether that's learning a couple chords or the whole scale of every key.

Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!

Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.

"I had been trying to learn the guitar for a while and met several teachers along the way. However it was with Ahmad that I developed the interest and excitement you experience when you play a guitar. Ahmad is the best guitar teacher hands down. In a very short time I have been able to understand not just how to play the guitar but also music in general. Ahmad is a very enthusiastic teacher who keeps the momentum going throughout the session. If you are in the area and want to learn the guitar you should definitely pay Ahmad a visit."

"I have been a student of Tim’s for a little over a year now. I started playing guitar at age 52 and when I started with Tim I was very close to giving up or settling on just being able to strum a few chords. I have had many hand injuries in the past that have resulted in arthritis and lack of dexterity in my wrists and some of my fingers and I started doubting I would ever be able to progress in my ability to play. From the very first lesson where I told Tim about my hand issues and my frustrations, he told me he was sure we could work around any physical limitations I had, and he was right. Tim has been able to work with me on alternative ways to play the chords I was having trouble with and has shown me that these alternate techniques along with the bit of music theory he sprinkles into lessons can really expand my ability to play.

In the time I have been studying with Tim, I have done more than I thought I ever could. I went from a frustrated beginner guitar player to having enough confidence to play on stage with some of Tim’s other students and I am now looking forward to what I will be able to do on the guitar instead of being frustrated with what I can’t do.

Tim is a talented and passionate musician as well as a knowledgeable and very relatable instructor which is a rare combination and he's also a really great guy and any student of any age or ability will benefit from studying with him."
