Blues Guitar:
There are so many styles of blues to choose from and in our class we will touch on the ones that especially interest the student.
Starting with the basics (learning notes, chords, rhythms, techniques and scales) we will also be learning different picking and strumming techniques, playing slide, learning songs and soloing.

About Karen

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

For Barbershoppers I need a smooth transition to my falsetto. Kwame put me at ease, we did some exercises and found the transition without me even noticing the change. He is a gifted teacher. I look forward to our next appointment as we start reading music from the Barbershoppers music book. I did not expect such a warm atmosphere. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

I have been taking lessons for over a year with Dee. I started with mandolin and then switched to piano. Dee is very knowledgeable about both instruments and is an extremely patient and approachable teacher. I’m an older student so I really appreciate her patience and ability to challenge me at the right level. I’ve tried other teachers that were either too rigid or too unstructured and Dee is neither. I highly recommend Dee as a music instructor, she clearly has a lot of experience and knowledge about how to teach.
Mike O.
Very patient and understanding person. At my age of 62 and trying to learn the bass along with the challenges of issues brought by life, these sessions have become therapeutic in nature....
Mike O.
Dee was very informative and answered all my questions. She understands that myself an older student returning to music has a different approach and she is going to work with me. I am looking forward to next week.

"I've been taking guitar lessons across the country since 1975, and Mark is the best instructor I've ever had. His expertise on the instrument is only surpassed by his ability to make something complicated appear simple for the student. I've had more fun taking lessons and practicing in the past 6 months as Mark's student than I have in the previous 40 years. I highly recommend him."

"I was very impressed, satisfied and happy about my guitar lessons with Greg.
I'm German and booked just 5 lessons due to travel reasons. There was very vage input from me to Greg when we started (I always play the same; want to get new ideas; ...). Greg did not just provide a regular standard lesson. He focused and addressed 100%+ my desires and needs. Greg provided me very conrete and great input in several aspects to what I can do to improve my guitar playing. This was very useful to me and enabled me to move my guitar play forward. I highly recommend Greg to anybody."

"Andrea has been the best teacher I’ve ever had, hands down! I have been playing guitar for a few years now and had learned some licks on my own, but Andrea really helped me understand how to incorporate these licks and make my own using different chord progressions. He also taught me that it’s not always about how many notes you play, but the feel and meaning behind every note that matters."

"After messing around on the guitar for years I'm looking for a teacher who can go back and take me through all the building blocks of music, including scales, chords, and formations. After just one jam-packed 60 min lesson with Eric I know he's the teacher that can do just that. I feel like I've already learned more than I could in weeks of doing it on my own.

Super pumped to reignite my guitar learning with Eric as I know I'll be able to make progress faster with the proper guided direction.

"I'm an older self taught player that finally decided to take lessons. I have been working with William for a little over a month now. He began with cleaning up my playing position. This was really big for me as I have had issues that prevented me from playing as long as I would like due to back and hand pain.
William spent the time to figure out where I was and wanted to go. Im very pleased with the progress I'm making and am confident that taking lessons with William was a great choice. He has also been very giving of his time to help pick out instruments and gear to move my instruction along.
I see a lot of instructors here that are players trying to augment their gigging money by giving lessons. Williams education and background really show in his lesson presentation and effectiveness."

Tricks For Differentiating The Two Blues Chord Progressions

Here's an intro by Austin, TX guitar teacher Samuel B...   In order to properly respect and understand both the theory and structure of ANY kind of American music, it's essential to be able to play the blues.

5 Blues Guitar Secrets That Will Make You a Better Player

Learning how to play blues guitar? Pay extra attention to these five things from guitar teacher Mike B.... 1. In Tune Bends The blues guitar style is full of bending strings. Bends, as well as hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides, give guitarists the ability to imitate the way singers use various inflections while singing melodies. However, unlike hammers-ons and slides, bends are not guaranteed to be in tune. Since there is nothing worse than an out-of-tune bend in the climax of a great solo …
