Music By Ear And For The Heart

5.0Exceptional(9 reviews)


I spend more time than most for less money. I write my own songs and have recorded. Although I don't do this for a living I have been around guitar and music for 30 years.

LOVE seeing people learn and RUN with what I teach them.

It means more than any amount of money paid and again that's why i spend more time than most for less money than most charge.

    It has been really beautiful! I never thought I would actually be playing the guitar! But Keith has made it as smooth as butter learning from him! Very patient and understanding of the level that I’m at.

    Keith is awesome. He is teaching my two sons, ages 9 and 7, as well as myself. During the 1 hour a week we spend with him he is able to efficiently carry out his lesson plans which are different for each of us. He is very patient with my 7 year old who kind of plays to the beat of his own drummer, literally. My 9 year old has thrived under Keiths tutelage and continues to amaze me each week. Me, Im picking things up faster than I thought possible but Im really just having fun watching him work with my boys and seeing their progress.
    I highly recommend Keith no matter what level of musical ability you have. You will improve quickly and you will have fun doing it!

    I have been taking guitar lessons through “Music by Ear and for the Heart” for a matter of months now - almost a year.
    What I like most is that the focus is on what I want to learn. I am learning to play songs that interest me and will help me improve my skills.
    I am able to be flexible when scheduling my next appointment so my busy life does not prevent me from pursuing my goals.
    I have always loved music and this is something I have always wanted to do.
    When I finish a lesson, I am excited about what I have done and what is possible for me to learn.
    This is something I truly enjoy.

    Keith teaches my 13 y/o son and his friend. He is really amazing with them and teaches them well. My son has not only learned a lot from him but he has learned to really listen to music and has developed a love of all things guitar

    30 years of playing. My own style. My love for music translated into songs and expression. I also am a worship leader and that's a big part of this. Praising the Creator!

    $25/ half hour

    For me a half hour lesson is just enough to get started.
    I can do hour lessons for $35 but either way is fine.

    Friends asking me to teach them

    Young and Old. Experienced and new learners. As a teacher I find that I am still learning to teach and acquiring more skills for my own playing.

    Hmmmmmm, my wife's vegetable soup for dinner?

    Look for experience. Book knowledge can take you just so far.
    Experiencing anything gives you a knowing that is yours. I would also look for passion. This is something that makes my life fun and expressive. People love to create and this does just that!

    What are you looking to accomplish. What is the goal? A past time? A serious study as in a career? What kind of music do you want to learn and possibly why?
