About this pro

Hi. My name is Ron Moore. I offer guitar lessons that are specific to your individual needs. If you have never played the guitar, or if you have played and have specific challenges or goals you haven't reached, I can help. If you think guitar lessons are too theory oriented or maybe over simplified with little or no theory, I can design a lesson plan that is specific to your needs. You may have a good ear but struggle with note reading and theory. You may have played for a while and are ready for a more theoretical background. I can customize your lessons to fit your strengths and improve your ability.

If you feel you have waited too long to start playing, rest assured , you haven't! Guitar should be fun, but it takes practice. I will make sure that what you practice will improve your ability to play and enjoy the guitar.

I have a Bachelor of Music degree from Queens University, N.C. I've been playing guitar for over 30 years and teaching for over 20 years.

    Very knowledgeable and patient instructor. He made the learning process enjoyable too.

  • Kirk Easterbrook

    Patience for the student, knowledge of guitar and layed back teaching style

  • Kathleen Osborn

    Ron was very patient with my daughter's interest in ukelele and was a knowledgeable instructor in several instruments. He has a few options for location of instruction to boot, I.e., your home, his studio. Very pleasant and encouraging!

  • Ken

    Ron obtains the student's background and adjusts lessons to fit well into the student's music beginning. I had no music experience but his lesson plans were well worked out to fit my need. He was always on time and ready to teach. He maximized the lesson time well. His suggestions seemed practicable. It is enjoyable experience.

FAQs


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

I usually chat with the student to make them feel comfortable. I listen to what they say so I can get a better idea how to teach them. I check their guitar so it is playable and in good working condition. I go over how to hold and position the guitar for good technique. Then we start!


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

I have a Bachelor of Music degree from Queens University in Charlotte, N.C. I've been teaching and performing for over 30 years.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $20 a half hour. $30 for 45 minutes and $40 an hour. Usually one lesson a week. I require a monthly tuition to be payed by the first lesson of the month.


How did you get started teaching?

I was working at a YMCA and I asked if I could teach guitar there. And they said yes. After my degree,  I started working at music stores and teaching there.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with all ages and all styles and levels.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I had a student who recently graduated high school that I taught since he was eight and he auditioned at  the Berkeley School of Music in Boston and he was accepted!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure they teach proper technique and have a good understanding and balance between practising and playing the guitar.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Just be honest. A good teacher has the experience and knowledge to help them achieve their goals.
