Hi, I’m Meghan! I’ve been playing guitar for over ten years. I will walk you through the basics of any style of guitar playing! How to read music, how to play by ear, how to play chords and put them together to jam on all your favorite songs. I can explain things in a way that is fun and stress-free!

I like how she connected with my son very fast,and in a professional ready to teach and very dedicated. I am very happy with the choice l did.

Meghan dove right into the lesson, customizing it at the perfect level for our daughter's experience. We liked that she was prepared and maximized the time. She has a youthful personality and knowledge of pop songs which is a great personality fit with our 13 year old daughter. She also customized the lesson and song choice in a way that would appeal to my daughter. My daughter is actually excited to take lessons and is already planning her list of songs she wants to learn.

This is YOUR lesson. We will learn songs that you like and we will incorporate theory along the way. Be prepared for jam sessions at the end of every lesson. I teach out of a book called "Lessons for Life". This guitar theory book puts it into practical terms and you will be able to see improvement quickly. We also have a full recording studio for when you feel like you have mastered a song!

I am really enjoying my lessons. Courtney is very competent, kind and easy going! I think we will accomplish exactly what I was looking for. My goal was to receive a musical education and get me on the way to being a musician. The one on one experience makes learning better. The people online teaching doesn't give me what I was looking for.

Extremely helpful during lessons. Designs the lessons to use song in my areas of interest. Lesson critiques are always done in a positive manner. Right now mostly in the area of finger placement. This does make the music easier to play. Her husband Chris also teaches.

The Guitar is my first love. I customize every lesson for every individual student that I have, and base the heart of each lesson off of the infatuation I have for my six-stringed side kick. I love to use the guitar as a tool to expand my students creativity. My students learn to listen and appreciate a broad variety of styles and experience the full music spectrum.
Lessons will cover scales, theory, chords, jazz and blues progression as well as Crafting your tone for your amplifier,finger picking and performance techniques.

About Rachel

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager. I really enjoy the art of practice

"Fantastic Since 2011

Jesse has worked with all 3 of my kids. Trumpet, piano and guitar, including voice. Jesse is passionate about music and sharing it. He loves what he does and his enthusiasm translates to the students. He inspires them to push their limits and really enjoy the experience. He is professional, experienced, interested, and easy going but very reliable--a rare combination."

"A teacher of this caliber comes around once in a blue moon. His knowledge of the guitar and music is vast and he knows how to pass that on simply and effectively. He can take you where you want to go musically if you have the dedication. My creative potential has expanded beyond what I thought was possible. I am beginning to have a real experience of myself as a musician and the unfolding of my own music through the insight of his teachings. I definitely recommend learning from him!"

"I started lessons with Ahmad not knowing anything about guitar or how to read music. He was excited to start fresh with me and teach the basics. He is always patient and is excited about his job, which makes it fun for me. While I am still very much a beginner, I have noticed progression and owe it all to Ahmad. I am currently on a little break from playing, but I am looking forward to reaching out to Ahmad as soon as I can to start lessons again. If you love music and are interested in learning how to play, make the call to Ahmad - you will not be disappointed."

"Eric is one of the raddest dudes out there teaching. If you want your guitar playing to attract lots of hot babes into your life and make you feel like a rock star, then book your lesson with Eric. He was patient and attentive as I asked him many weird noob questions worthy of a few eye rolls. He understood my struggles, and sent me away with lots of homework to help me progress with my playing and technique. There’s never a short supply of wisdom and knowledge coming from this guy. I’m looking forward to learning more."
