    Byron has been teaching my boys guitar for several years and he has done an amazing job! My youngest son performed a solo with the electric guitar at his school talent show, thanks to the confidence he gained while working with Byron. I recommend Byron to all my friends because of his skill, punctuality, and flexibility.

    Byron is an amazing instructor. He is well versed in all genres of music and tailors his instruction to the student. I never thought I would enjoy learning theory but Byron made it interesting and relevant. I actually got to play a gig with the lessons learned from Byron. Thank you brother for helping me reach a bucket list goal! Rock on!🎸

    Byron has been working with my boys for several years, and he has been great! Byron is always on time and he is very accommodating when we need to reschedule a lesson. My younger son felt confident enough to perform a solo on the electric guitar at his school's talent show, all thanks to Byron!

    Tocar Guitarra.🎸 siempre fue mi deseo,pero a causa de mi trabajo me fue imposible . Solo al momento de retirarme tuve la portunidad y la suerte de hacerlo,y estudiar con un buen profesor el señor Byron Haynes. Con Byron he recorrido el camino de las Notas Musicales,los Acordes y todo lo que encierra el Maravilloso Mundo de la Musica Classica. Por mi profesor ahora tocar una hermosa Melodia . La paciensia y dedicacion hacia el alumno me hacen sentir que si puedo a pesar de mi edad. Gracias profesor Haynes por hacerme participe de sus conocimientos De Musica. Gracias por ser un excelente profesor. Yo insto a todas las personas que deseen aprender a tocar Musica Classica, Acustica,o Electrica a que se animen y escojan un profe como el.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

If the student is a beginner, my goal is to make sure that no bad habits are developed. Right from the start we begin with proper posture and proper right and left hand placement. We start by learning some basics: proper fret hand finger placement, holding the pick properly, tuning the guitar, exercises for building finger strength, exercises for building left and right hand coordination, etc. It is important that the student learn the basics of music but at the same time, I keep it interesting by introducing well known songs that are fun and easy to play. I gradually introduce more challenging material as the student's overall skill continues to develop. If the student already has some experience playing, my approach will be completely different. We begin by determining what the overall goal will be and then I determine what's necessary to reach those goals. Here are a few things that experienced students have asked me to help them with: learn more chords, improve sight reading, learn music theory, learn to apply scales and arpeggios, know how to learn songs quickly and efficiently, learn to keep time, prepare for an audition, improve technique, learn subdivision, work with a metronome and the list goes on and on. There are many factors to consider and I would give a thorough evaluation, so that we can take the proper course of action that will achieve the desired result.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Berklee College of Music


How did you get started teaching?

When I was living in Boston going to Berklee College of Music, I interned and began teaching lessons at a local church. I found that I had a natural knack for teaching and found that I have a lot of patience for it. I enjoy watching students grow and get better under my guidance.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with beginner, intermediate and advanced students. I like to teach children as young as seven, teenagers and adults. I have also worked with retired individuals who have taken on the challenge of learning to play guitar for the first time in their lives; I've had great success with many of them. It's all about being patient and letting the student go at his or her own pace.
