Private Bluegrass Guitar Teacher

Bluegrass is one of the most excited guitar styles, and has been a great source of inspiration to me over my life of studying music. We can delve into the dazzling stylings of master flatpickers like Tony Rice and Norman Blake, and cover the nuances of bluegrass rhythm styles. I can also demystify how bluegrass players learn to improvise with ease and musicality over the songs and progressions that make up this rich repertoire. Tune up your Martin box and join me!

Private Bluegrass Guitar Teacher

I TEACH all of my students - beginning beginners through advanced - that what seems complicated is nothing more than a bunch of simple things put together. The next step in your learning guitar is simple. We just need to identify it and learn it. No matter what skills you already have - or if you are just getting started - we can identify what you already know and build on top of it. If you have holes in your skillset (everybody does!), we can identify them and fill them in.

DID YOU KNOW that a lot of fingerstyle guitar moves and improvisation are EASIER than some types of strumming? Beginning and intermediate guitar players learn a lot of "campfire" techniques - how to strum a certain way, how to form certain chords. And this is really good. But there is a whole bunch of other techniques few players know that are just as simple. Just as easy. And when you learn them you will stand out as the accomplished guitar player you can be.

THE RESULT is that you will learn a ...

Spook has been a wonderful guitar teacher, always offering great insight and helping me understand new concepts with my guitar. He is very accommodating to my interests and will structure my lesson around what I am trying to learn. I have seen clear improvements over a short period of time while working with him and suggest him to anyone regardless of level!

Spook is a knowledgeable, patient, perceptive, fun, and inventive teacher. He teaches music, guitar performance, and songwriting in small, digestible steps so you can really get your head (and fingers) around it. But, more important than all of this, he is an advocate and a friend.

Hannah
I highly recommend Mel for fiddle. He had a lot of really good tips and was very willing to find songs that fit the kind of music I wanted to play. Highly recommend!
Ilona
I absolutely love Mel’s lessons and look forward to them every week! I haven’t played seriously in years and have developed some bad bowing habits and difficulty with pitch over time and was close to not playing anymore. After reading the other reviews, I decided to give him a try and am so thankful I did!! My bowing and intonation is improving, he incorporates some music theory appropriate to what we are learning to master the song. I can’t wait to see where I am in 6 months from now! Thank you Mel, my passion for music is returning and am looking forward to my audition in the community orchestra next season!
Hannah
I just started working with Mel and he is awesome! He really listened to my goals and the type of music I am interested in playing and he is planning our lessons based on that. He is very good at explaining things and giving examples. I look forward to our lessons. Highly recommend!
