To me, learning any instrument is about balancing the exercises with the fun material that makes you want to keep playing. I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests and age, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs. I also tend to supplement whichever books I'm using with material of my own, to make sure we're also covering important topics such as music theory and maybe a bit of relevant music history in the process.

Joshua has helped me become a better guitar player by showing me how I can work towards my goals, and giving me exercises, information and musical practice that makes my goals attainable. Joshua is a student-directed teacher, and he has worked with me to focus on my areas of interest (songwriting and fingerstyle/chord work). He is willing to answer questions, responsive to ideas, and able to explain difficult concepts. I've learned things that will help me improve my guitar playing for years. Thank you, Joshua.

I was self taught when I started taking lessons, Josh helped me fix some bad habits that helped me push my playing to the next level!
Marco
I grew up on bossa, and wanted to learn how to play it. I had played guitar for years but mostly rock and folk. Josh was able to take what I knew and teach me how to play bossa music.

I believe in teaching what you love. And that doesn't mean just playing and recreating all of your favorite songs. It means deconstructing and understanding the ins and outs of music that you and others love, giving you the theory, techniques, and process to make great music of your own.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hello! My name is Kyle and I have 10+ years combined experience in music education, performance, and songwriting! My passion lies in two things: music and teaching. I remember how amazed I was as a child discovering music and the potential that it held and I want to pass that sense of wonder on to my students. I enjoy approaching each lesson with a mindset that fits the students thought process to help them understand music in their own way.

Here's what students can expect from my lessons:
- A personalized approach to music that best suits YOU!
- Learn music that is interesting to you. This can be anything from pop to classical! Remember: this is your musical journey, not mine! :)
- Incorporation of music theory and ear training in every lesson
- Open line of communication at all times between student and teacher

I have 2 years experience in public education as a choir director, piano director, and general music teacher for elementary and middle school students. I also have 8 years

After two years under his instruction, we can, with assurance, say that we have Mr. Herridge to thank for creating an interest in music throughout our home! His musical background and knowledge of instruments makes him a very versatile instructor. However, it’s his sheer love of music that is the most infectious aspect of his teaching. His personalized teaching method tailors to your child’s interests and aptitude. It’s been amazing to see the growth in my kiddos ability to play his instrument. Kyle Herridge is professional, reliable and fun! We couldn’t ask for more!

I have taught guitar for over 10 years and believe students should get to play what they want to play! Students are asked to come up with a list of songs and/or artists they would love to play. Through teaching chords, note reading and theory, the song possibilities are endless! I also can help the aspiring singer/guitar player to be able to both play and sing simultaneously.

I can teach finger picking, sight reading, songs, and reading tab. Acoustic guitar is a wonderful way to start learning to play the guitar because you learn how to make the sounds naturally with the instrument.

"Jimmy's patience with my 6 year-old son was remarkable. I was reluctant to start him so young, but Jimmy explained things in a way he could understand, and always encouraged him to ask questions. My son learned so much, and he was really excited to learn, thanks to Jimmy's calm demeanor and skill as a teacher. I would recommend Jimmy to ANYONE that wants to learn, he is a wonderful teacher!"

"I've been taking lessons with Ahmad for a year now. When I started, I was an absolute beginner having just taken a few guitar classes in high school. Now getting my Master's, I've been around A LOT of teachers and it's always clear early on whether you are lucky enough to have a great teacher. Some teachers, although they have excellent credentials, don't have the ability to convey their knowledge to their students in positive and effective ways.

In 6 months I've learned over two dozen chords, chord progression, strumming and playing in rhythm. I've learned my favorite songs from the Foo Fighters to Jenny Lewis. I definitely wouldn't be at this performance level without him. I've gone weeks without practicing and he would still be encouraging, adjusting his pedagogical approach so I can learn better or he would have suggestions for making my practice time more productive.

Ahmad has such enthusiasm for music and teaching and it shows in his playing (iTunes) and instruction. It's really inspiring as it's been a huge motivation for me to keep practicing to become confident enough to create my own music one day I think whether you are a beginner or more experienced, Ahmad has a good intuition of what a student needs to help them progress. The pacing for me is perfect, as I never feel like I have too little or too much to practice each week. Lessons are always light hearted but focused and educational. I'm always looking forward to the next one."

I've had a passion for music my entire life and have taken lessons with many different teachers. No one has come close to Russell's authenticity. He is Unique to say the least and extremely delicate in articulating step by step instructions on how to master guitar playing!

Just in a few lessons I'm already playing like a Pro! (at least I feel like one, haha) Never thought I would be playing with such ease!

I HIGHLY Recommend Lessons with Russell. Extremely Genuine, Patient and understanding of each individual student!
