I'm always thrilled to meet to guitar students! My primary speciality is classical guitar. It's a wonder to explore new and old methods. We will look at new ideas in guitar technique as well as dig through centuries-old tomes of ancient guitar wisdom to conjure up a forgotten melody ;) I also play and teach many other techniques: jazz, blues, folk, rock, prog-rock, metal, and Renaissance lute! (I perform as part of the ren-faire duo, The Lute and the Lady). Niche genres like Celtic, Spanish, Mariachi, Bossa Nova are also welcome -- even if it's new to me (shoegaze?), I can help you explore your musical passion. If you want to learn to sin

Each student is a unique person as well as each teacher so the relationship between the two is ever changing and as a teacher I try to find where inside their personality I can pass along the skills they desire .. important the student enjoys the work, time and dedication it requires to learn an instrument. Equally as important to enjoy your instructor The gift of musicianship is the most beautiful thing one can pass along.. the ability to give that gift is a rare and satisfying experience

Why should I take classical guitar lessons?

You should take classical guitar lessons if you have an acoustic guitar and want to learn how to play classical concertos or Spanish-style music with fingerpicking.

Classical guitar lessons teach you how to:

  • Use nylon-string guitars and strum with the fingers instead of a pick
  • Develop your fingers to focus on complex fingerpicking techniques
  • Understand classical music theory and sight-reading

At what age should I start classical guitar lessons?

Children generally begin their classical guitar journey between the ages of 6 to 10, or as soon as they can hold the instrument well with enough hand strength to press the strings. Adults of all ages can master the instrument with the correct guidance and consistent practice.

How many classical guitar lessons do I need?

The number of weekly classical guitar lessons you need will depend on your personal goals and dedication to practice. A beginner might grasp a simple song within 2 to 6 months, but acquiring proficiency like a professional requires 4 to 10 years on average.

How do I find the best classical guitar lessons near me?

You can find proficient classical guitar tutors nearby by looking at the listings here on the Lessons platform. Sometimes teachers ara available through local music stores too.

Before hiring your tutor, always:

  • Obtain quotes from a minimum of 3 teachers and clarify what they teach.
  • Review feedback about them on Google and the Lessons site.
  • Request a reference list of their past students.
  • Ask fellow parents about their children's experiences with the tutor.
  • Secure a written agreement and schedule prior to the first session.
  • Make small initial payments to gauge the tutor's compatibility before committing to a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a classical guitar teacher?

Ask these pertinent questions to help you pick a classical guitar teacher:

  • Did you study music formally, and what qualifications do you have?
  • How many years have you been teaching classical guitar?
  • Could I have a trial lesson to see if your teaching method works for me?
  • What is the typical age range of your students?
  • Which model of acoustic guitar should I purchase?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice is required?
  • What type of strings are best for beginners?
  • Which books should I buy for learning classical guitar?
  • Can you accommodate different learning styles?
  • What essentials should I bring to class, and how long is each session?
  • Can I have a written copy of our class schedule?
  • What is your policy for missed classes?
  • Am I allowed to suggest songs that I would like to learn?

Cynthia M.
John is extremely professional. We have a 13-year-old with mild special needs, and John has been patient with him, encouraging him but allowing him to move at his own pace. We've seen tremendous growth in our son over the past year, and cannot recommend John highly enough. His talent and passion for teaching music is evident in everything he does, and we have been very pleased with our overall experience.
