Music Chairperson and Adjudicator's studio is taking new students.

I began my studies on guitar with classical lessons from my sisters, and folk guitar with my church's youth group, then as the years went by went on to learn and perform in many other styles: Rock, Jazz, Blues, Spirituals, Contemporary Christian, and more. What are your goals as a guitar student? Do you want to learn to finger pick, classical, folk or country styles? Do you want to be a lead or ensemble player? How can different dynamics change the mood of your performance? How do different strumming patterns effect the mood and style of guitar performance? If electric, how does different equ [more]

Fun, experienced tutor in writing, reading, and music

I've played guitar for at least 30 minutes every day since I received one as a gift on my 12th birthday. That makes it nearly 13 years, now. I studied under a classically trained guitarist who'd been playing for 40 years and learned a great deal about chord theory and musicianship. I've taught several people (with skill levels ranging from "I've never held an instrument" to intermediate experience) how to play, trying my best to be a patient, thorough teacher. I like to focus not only on sheet music, but on helping the student learn the music they love so they can interact with it directly. I' [more]

Sports/Lifting for 10+ years, basic math, English tutor

I have played multiple instruments throughout my life time (piano, drums, guitar) and I picked up guitar around the 7th-8th grade and I have been a part of my church worship team for many years. I play both acoustic and electric guitars and I am confident that I can teach the basics of guitar. Hi, I?m James and I am currently enrolled at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I grew up in an isolated rural town in South Korea which I believe made me more active and do more outdoor activities. I have always been active, whether it?s participating in school sports, outside sports events, or li [more]

Patient and Laid-back Tutor!

I have been playing guitar for the past seven years. I have worked in numerous studio settings and lead music with a guitar every week at my church. My portfolio of recorded works continues to grow and develop consistently. Hello, friends! I'm passionate about drinking the best coffee and about pursuing excellence in music and live sound. This translates into a lot of time spent working from a laptop with a guitar close by. In learning to teach guitar to others, my approach has been to take the music that you love and to make that the focus. Be inspired, play well, have fun! For the past fi [more]
