Private Guitar Teacher

I can teach beginning guitar students how to play their favorite songs. Also, how to read tabs and chord charts. Advanced students can learn theory and jazz improvisation. I can help students who have been using a capo learn how to play bar chords so you will no longer need a capo.
Guitar students should be at least nine years old.
I do not teach finger picking style.

John is amazing! Pre-Covid, he taught my daughter piano in person. He has beautifully navigated teaching piano in the height of a pandemic. My daughter has not missed a beat! John encompasses all the qualities I could hope for in a music teacher. He is patient, kind, and my daughter looks forward to her classes with him each week. I doubt anyone would regret hiring John to work with his/ or her child!
Katie
I have three children with varying levels of commitment to learning to play the piano, and they each took a break from lessons at different times. I think John Sanders did a great job of managing that so they stayed interested and didn’t feel pressured. The individual instruction is most helpful, and all three kids progressed pretty quickly because it was driven by their individual goals—not a too-demanding teacher.
Chris
John is a great teacher, for a child of any age, or an adult. We've worked with him many years. He can teach lessons on many instruments, or can teach theory. He's great to work with.

Hi! I teach acoustic guitar for all ages! I have 13 years experience playing and 3 years teaching. I tailor my lessons based on each individual students needs/goals. My specialty is playing and singing together, to include teaching students how to play cover songs to match their vocal range.

About Josh

My name is Josh and I love to play the guitar! I also enjoy teaching others and helping people find their passion through playing music I've been playing for 14 years, acoustic, electric, bass...you name it. I've been in a few bands (90s covers, Blues, Classic Rock) but find solo work to be my favor

I am a music educator with 12 years teaching experience in private lessons, public schools, and private schools. I play many instruments and many different styles.

Beginner
Learn the basics of rhythm and tonality so you can play the music you're most interested in.

Intermediate
Learn about common variations of the tonalities you already know and start to venture into more complex rhythm ideas like polyrhythms. Also start to build the chops to learn parts more accurately when learning songs.

Advanced
Expand into more complex polyrhythms as well as asymmetrical meters. Also expand harmony and melody to include modes and chromaticism. Push your skills through original creations or original arrangements of existing material.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

He has a near encyclopedic knowledge on almost all things music from composition to theory with a genuine interest in the material as well as teaching it. He is extremely patient, friendly, and kind of a nerd on several fronts, in the best, most awesome way possible I mean.
