My name is Brent. I am a 28 year old musician and guitar teacher. I have been playing guitar for approximately 15 years, have played in working bands and would like to start teaching more. I am hoping to work with beginners primarily as these are tyically the students i have worked with in the past. Given the obvious restrictions and obsticles that the pandemic has presented, video call lessons would be optimal, however, I'm sure I can accomidate in some circumstances. I am very reasonably priced and although this is a job, I genuineely do love getting others to have the same excitment for the instrument that i did, and still have.
I am passionate about guitar and music in genreral, so I enjoy all fascets of music including teaching. I am also a student of the instrument (as is everyone) so I am contantly learning as well to betteer my teaching skills. It truly is an honor to get someone excited to play after learning something new and that gives me genuine joy.

I like to get to know my new students and gauge their knowledge of the instrument before overwhelming them with information. Once I have an idea of where their limits are, I try to create a plan that best suits said student.
I have no formal education of the guitar, but I do have over 5 years of performance experience, as well as a couple years of recording experience.
I charge by the hour. Prices vary, depending on location primarily (if I am traveling to the student).
I started teaching friends who wanted to learn how to play. Naturally I eventually wanted to expand and teach others.
Mostly college students, but age range from 17-30.
I got to see the Rolling Stones in Orlando. They are my favorite!
Pick a teacher who you believe is a good fit for you. Know what it is you want to learn, and find a teacher who you think can help facilitate that. Most importantly find a teacher who will make learning fun. I find that enjoyment makes the learning process easier, and people are more likely to retain information if they are enjoying themselves.
- do I really want to learn this instrument?
- what is it that I wish to learn?
- do I have any knowledge of this instrument?
- do I believe I will stick with this?
