I tried to teach guitar in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play lead guitar, or how to finger pick. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

About John

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me. Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me,

For me, playing guitar is all about having fun and learning positive ways to express yourself. My goal is to get you started on your musical journey and most importantly, start having fun fast! While it is necessary to understand the fundamentals of guitar, it doesn't have to be a boring process that feels like school or homework. I take a personalized approach to give you the necessary tools and build a solid foundation of musical knowledge using YOUR favorite songs! I've been playing shows all over the southeast with my country/rock band for about 7 years now, and I'd love to see where music can take you too!

About Sterling

I started playing guitar at the age of 12, and what a wild ride it has been. I've accomplished things through music that I would have not thought possible then, and the same can be true for you! I learned by breaking down my favorite songs in to their rudimentary elements and observing the technique

Private 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!
Lee I.
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.
Erin
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!

Justine
Michael is an incredible teacher. My fiance has never played a musical instrument before in his life and I got him a few lessons for his birthday. At first, I wasn't sure how virtual music lessons would go, but Michael is by all accounts, an incredibly engaging, funny, and knowledgeable instructor. My fiance looks forward to his weekly lessons with Michael. In particular, he enjoys learning about the history of this incredible instrument alongside the actual music theory and practical aspects of learning a new instrument.

It has been truly incredible to witness my fiance transform in a few short weeks from someone scared of learning a new instrument to someone who is confident that he can learn a new skill provided he puts in the time and effort to practice and show up! Michael has given him the confidence and the inspiration to make amazing progress as a student.

I highly recommend Michael as an instructor. He really makes the virtual format work and he knows how to introduce beginner musicians to the joys of learning how to express yourself on an instrument.

"Adam has been an incredible instructor. I've been playing the guitar for 15 years, but haven't improved in a long time, so I decided to go back for lessons. Adam immediately identified some areas to work on to help me meet my goals, and I've already made noticeable improvements after just a few months of working with him. I would highly recommend him, even if you're a more advanced player. There's always more to learn, and Adam has a lot of different perspectives to offer with his vast knowledge of music theory and proficiency with multiple instruments and musical genres."
