Learn to play guitar: friendly teacher for children and adults
I’ve taught children and adults the basics of acoustic guitar in workshops in America and around the world, and in private lessons. I especially love to help children discover the joy of music at a young age. My lessons can be relaxed and informal, showing the basics of music and the acoustic guitar, but I can also help older learners learn stylistic techniques and write and product their own music. My teaching lays emphasis on understanding fingerpicking, the basics of rhythm, chord progressions, open tunings and guidance to help the student find his or her unique style. Genres include pop music, folk, and blues. Have your own requests? Get in touch and let's see if we can learn together!
About Tucker L.

Hi, my name is Tucker Livingston. I was born and raised in Austin, TX to a family of artists and musicians. I am an award winning singer/songwriter and professional musician for over 25 years. I have been a featured artist at The Austin City Limits Music Festival, SXSW Music Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival and Voice of America. I won best Singer/Songwriter in 2004 for the Austin Music Foundation's Incubator Competition. My songs have been featured on television, radio, and in contemporary dance, ballet and films. Along with pursuing my solo career, I’ve traveled on multiple tours as an official US Ambassadors of American music. I performed in over 80 cities abroad and held music workshops for children and adults alike. I’ve also been a member of several non-profit Texas music groups for children including Groundwork’s Music Orchestra and Cowboys & Indians. I love meeting people and sharing my love of music. It's my hope that my online lessons can inspire people to find their own artistic voice. I offer online guitar lessons for children and adults, and songwriting lessons for older students. It’s exciting to be able to inspire and enable others to play music through these online lessons. Get in touch, I'd love to work with you!

Tucker's music and experience on guitar will shine through when you invest in his teaching. He thinks outside the literal music box and opens up a larger palette of music by understanding the thought process behind it. Not many people can tell you, "I learned this chord from Jerry Jeff Walker...". Tucker has that experience, and the stories to make your experience fun and meaningful. Highly recommended.

I had always wanted to play guitar, and Tucker taught me how to do it. We started with just three chords, but then he taught me others and the notes that join them. I learned different ways of fingering and picking. I love our lessons because Tucker is super funny and patient, and now I feel like a real guitar player. Thank you, Tucker!
