EXPERT TUTOR - I make any subject easy!

I've been playing guitar for 17 years. I play electrical, acoustic, and a bit of classical guitar. I am well-versed in chords both common and obscure and have a working understanding of music theory. I play many different styles of music, from religious folk to heavy metal and everything in between. I have performed in bands, at open mic nights, and at private parties and events. I can provide audio/video samples upon request. As a guitar player, I'm constantly teaching and tutoring others in the instrument as I believe sharing music is integral to being a musician. [more]

Knowledgeable Guitar & Music Theory Tutor

I have been playing and studying guitar for over 10 years. I have played in rock bands, jazz bands, experimental bands, and anything else you can think of. I have a music degree from Berklee, which requires proficiency on an instrument. Hiya! I have been playing guitar for over 10 years and have been teaching for over 5. I take my guitar lessons very seriously because I love what I teach. With that being said, I joke ALL the time. In fact, humor is so paramount to me that people have told me my improvisation "sounds like [I'm] telling jokes." I am a bit of a Music Theory nerd. Underst [more]

Music is fun, so learning should be fun too

I have been teaching guitar for 5+ years now, and was accepted to Berklee College of Music having auditioned on guitar. Having been required to take private lessons at the institution, I am able to pass this experience of the highest level of musical education through to my students. Growing up in Switzerland I began learning guitar at the age of 8. Music quickly implemented itself as a driving force and major passion in my life, and I devoted my time to perfecting my craft. Once accepted to world renown music school Berklee College of Music, I moved to Boston to expand my knowledge even fu [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]
