I am very experienced and can accommodate and customize lessons according to students needs. I fell in love with music at an early age, and was attracted to guitar music at age 15.   Since then, I've been collecting guitars, learning all about the different brands.  I also began to explore different playing styles.   I played electric bass guitar in my first band

I was classically trained for nine years. I have been playing piano for eighteen years and have been teaching for six years.  I am extremely relational. Teaching is not just about teaching to me. It is about building relationships with the student and with the family.  I teach to the student's ability. If the child is able to go through the primer in a matter of a few months. I will go quickly through the primer. If he needs to be in the primer for over a year. I will do that. I believe that every student is unique in his or her learning capabilities and that it is incredibly important to cater to each individual learning level.&nbs ... View Profile

My teaching approach: I teach popular styles except classical, hiphop, ethnic and flamenco. Guitar playing is FUN. My teaching style is to find songs you want to play, and inject necessary concepts into the process of learning it. Includes music theory and technique. I use ear training, chord diagrams, tab, even standard notation. Bring songs or use my library. My background is in bands, in living rooms, and in the studio. So I can teach you to play by yourself, with others or in bands. My influences are: The British Invasion and folkies got me going in the last 60's - but I've been in bands since then, learning whatever was popular in each d ... View Profile

Featured Instructor: Glenn Weiser

Glenn Weiser, acoustic guitarist and string-instrument musician, is a well-respected and sought-after guitar teacher in the Hartford Connecticut (Newington) and Southwick, Massachusetts areas, as well as a writer of such Mel Bay publications as Celtic Guitar (Acoustic Masters), and he stopped by Lessons.com via Skype the other day to fill us in on his approach to acoustic guitar lessons, chicago blues guitar lessons and, in general, learning how to play guitar. We invite you to visit Glenn’s FindaGuitarTeacher page to view the interview, but, if you’d like, you can also read the interview below.

FindaGuitarTeacher: We’re here today with Glenn Weiser, who has a profile on FindaGuitarTeacher.com. Welcome, Glenn, and it’s great to be here with you today, and thanks for taking the time to talk with us about your guitar teaching.

Glenn Weiser: Thanks for having me, James.

FindaGuitarTeacher: It’s a pleasure to be here with you. Well, first, can you tell us where you teach guitar – what state are you in and what region within that state?

Glenn Weiser: Well, I teach guitar in, actually, two states. I teach guitar in Massachusetts, in Southwick, Massachusetts; I have a studio in my home. I also work in a music store in Newington, Connecticut, near Hartford, called Just Guitars.

FindaGuitarTeacher: And do you also offer Skype guitar lessons?

Glenn Weiser: Yes, I do. I do teach guitar online – webcam via Skype.

FindaGuitarTeacher: And you mentioned your studio in Southwick and the store in Connecticut – do you also travel at all to students’ homes?

Glenn Weiser: No, I don’t do that.

FindaGuitarTeacher: What is the guitar lesson climate there – do you find a lot of people wanting to learn guitar, and what guitar styles are people interested in learning?

Glenn Weiser: Well, I just actually moved here, so that remains to be seen. But, in general, there is a lot of interest in the sort of stuff – acoustic music – that I do in New England – you know, bluegrass, irish music, folk rock, things like that.

FindaGuitarTeacher: What other guitar styles do you you offer? You mentioned those styles of guitar – do you also offer other styles besides?

Glenn Weiser: Oh absolutely! I teach electric and acoustic guitar. I teach rock lead guitar. I teach acoustic and electric blues guitar … the early country blues, delta blues guitar, as well as Chicago blues on electric guitar. I teach classic rock – 60’s and 70’s. I teach folk music; I teach Irish music; I teach bluegrass; I teach alternative, I teach country music, and I also teach classical guitar.

FindaGuitarTeacher: That’s wonderful. Do you teach other instruments as well?

Glenn Weiser: Yes, I teach banjo, I teach mandolin, harmonica, fiddle and electric bass … and ukelele too.

FindaGuitarTeacher: People calling you have a lot of options.

Glenn Weiser: Well, they do.

FindaGuitarTeacher: And do you teach both adults and children how to play guitar?

Glenn Weiser: Yes, all ages.

FindaGuitarTeacher: And can you tell us a little bit … when you’re with a student, 1) How long are the lessons? and 2) Can you describe your basic guitar teaching approach?

Glenn Weiser: Guitar lessons are usually a half-hour. Hours are little bit more appropriate for advanced guitar students. The essential system is, basically, find out where the student wants to go with their musical goals, and help them get there. You could even call it the taxi driver’s school of musical instruction. Where do you want to go? Just tell me; I’ll get you there. You know, I don’t try to force my own tastes on the students. It’s all about what the student likes – not what I like, because I like so many different kinds of music that … You know … It’s not about me – it’s about getting the student to where they want to go musically.

FindaGuitarTeacher: That sounds wonderful, Glenn. And, can you tell us a little bit about what your fees are and what is your scheduling format? How often do you work with students?

Glenn Weiser: Well, let’s see, in the Newington store, it’s $25 a half-hour. At my studio it’s 22.50 – that would be ninety a month for four private half-hour guitar lessons.

FindaGuitarTeacher: Yes. And, when you’re teaching, what kind of equipment do you use? What kind of guitar do you have, and do you ever help guitar students learn how to use recording equipment in order to record themselves.

Glenn Weiser: I don’t do that so much. But, as far as my guitar goes, I have a lot of guitars, so if I’m teaching a bluegrass guitar lesson, yes, I’ve got a Martin D-28; if I’m teaching old country blues, I’ve got this (Gibson) J-45 here; if I’m teaching classic rock, I’ve got Strats, Teles, Les Pauls … things like that.

FindaGuitarTeacher: Sounds like you’re ready to go, no matter what style of music your guitar students want to get into.

Glenn Weiser: Yeah. Sure. I’ve pretty much got what it takes.

FindaGuitarTeacher: And do you offer guidance to students when they trying to buy a guitar?

Glenn Weiser: Oh, absolutely, I’ll help them pick out a guitar. Yeah.

FindaGuitarTeacher: That’s wonderful. This has been very helpful to help us learn more about you and what you do with your guitar teaching. I notice you do have the guitar with you. Could you play something for us to end the interview? You said that’s (Gibson J-45) your, more of … your Delta blues guitar.

Glenn Weiser: Well, yeah …

Editor’s Note: At this point of the interview, Glenn starts playing a compelling and rich country blues guitar riff that exemplifies one aspect of his guitar teaching. To hear a bit of Glenn’s playing style and what you could learn by taking guitar lessons with him, check out the full interview on Glenn’s FindaGuitarTeacher Page.

FindaGuitarTeacher: That sounds wonderful, Glenn. Thanks for playing that for us.

Glenn Weiser: Okay.

FindaGuitarTeacher: And, I also want to thank you for taking the time to do this interview with FindaGuitarTeacher.com. It’s really great to speak with you and to learn about your guitar teaching.

Glenn Weiser: Alright, thanks, James.

FindaGuitarTeacher: Thank you, Glenn, and best of luck with your guitar teaching in the new area where you are.

Glenn Weiser: Okay. Thank you.

FindaGuitarTeacher: Take care. Bye-bye.
