    Learning guitar is one of the best things I've ever done and sharing that experience with others is just pure fun for me. I've been teaching for several years and I'd love to do it as much as possible.  My teaching theory revolves around SONGS picked out by the student and making sure they stay engaged and have FUN. The most important thing about learning guitar is that the student is still playing a year from now, not that they know every scale and chord in existence.  So if you want to become a musician quickly and learn to play your favorite songs I would love to be your teacher!

    My teaching approach: To help the student develop the ability to perform, compose, improvise, enjoy and understand music. I will tailor the lessons to the student’s desired style/interests but will also introduce them to other styles/genres. A strong foundation in the basics (good technique, some reading skills, basic theory, and song form) is necessary for a student of any level. This quickens the learning process and gives the student the ability to interact and communicate with other musicians as well as learn songs on their own. These skills would be worked on.

    My teaching approach: I want to equip all of my students with the necessary skills to perform. This means the student will learn theory, sight reading skills, scales, improvisation skills, keys, they will learn how to use their ears, build a repertoire of music... The student can choose any genre to explore, but they will learn the material thoroughly. It is not good enough to just learn how to play a song from TAB. If you want to be a better player, you have to understand music. I try to do all of this while making the lessons fun. We crack a lot of jokes, but then spend time on some mind twi

Philadelphia Guitar Instruction

Don Kimenker · Philadelphia, PA

Featured Instructor

Don Kimenker is teaching electric, acoustic, classical, and bass guitar to all levels of students in the Philadelphia, and on his profile Don clearly demonstrates his experience and thoughtfulness inherent in his guitar teaching by describing what a guitar lesson with him might entail. I concentrate on a few things:

a.) agreed direction and check in with you
b.) enjoyment level, especially for kids
c.) good mix of songs to technique material

A 30 minute lesson is made up of reviewing the previous week’s materials and moving on to new and satisfying stuff for the student. I try to mix theory with specific ways to apply the theory so it’s less confusing. Lesson culminate into optional annual recital.”

Don Kimenker Gives Guitar Lessons That Broaden His Students' Knowledge and Perspective in Philadelphia

The team at is often gratified that our site attracts guitar teachers who take their music, their guitar playing, and their guitar teaching so seriously, and what we see on Don’s profile certainly fortifies our feelings. Taking a close look at how much care he’s put into describing his guitar lessons is sure to give you the same feeling we have. What he says about the positive effects of learning music, particularly guitar, is another example of his sincerity and dedication:

“I think all students are ideal. Everyone is different and has different time available for practicing and lessons. My opinion is that any exposure to music is good for a person – any person. I believe strongly that music advances a person’s ability to think in life as it opens up pathways in the brain that might have otherwise been closed or diminished.”

Every guitar student, or his or her parents, have the right to expect nothing less from a guitar teacher than what Don Kimeneker brings to his guitar teaching, and we hope you’ll check out his profile to find out more.
