I have a degree from Berklee College of Music and over 10 years experience teaching and working as a professional musician :)
i have developed my own unique curriculum to help you learn guitar 🎸 playing the styles you love!
I've taken lessons from a few teacher, and Jim is much better at helping me understand music theory. And I feel like he is invested in my success.
Jim Maguire is one of the best guitarist I have ever heard. Better than that, he is humble enough to break down even the simplest of techniques for beginners. I have been taking lessons with Jim for a long time and I can't recommend him enough. He is an inspiration to work with and my new guitar skills back that claim up! He is experienced in blues, jazz, pop, metal and everything in between and doesn't hesitate to teach any style you want, but also encourages students to become comfortable in other styles as well. Did I mention this guy can play?? He knows guitar amd music theory forwards and backwards and wants his students to do so, as well. I started learning guitar by watching YouTube videos, but Counter to what you Currently think, face to face sessions are so much better, and worth every penny with Jim.
Absolutely a professional and very punctual!
I ask the student questions about what they know, what music they like, and what their goals are. Then I can adjust how I teach to suit each student!
I have a degree in contemporary guitar from one of the most prestigious music schools in the world: Berklee College of Music in Boston. I have Taought for more than a decade, worked as a performing and touring musician, and recorded albums.
$40 if you come to my house in Katy, Texas. $60 if I go to you.
I started in high school and I've never had a job that wasn't teaching or playing music.
All ages, Pros, the disabled, aspiring college students, you name it.
One of my students came to me knowing no guitar and asked me to help him play and sing his favorite songs at his own wedding. 2 months later, he did it! That was really cool to see, and she had no idea!
Make sure they know what they are doing. Bad habits can be very hard to undue and you do not want to waste your time!
Think about what your goals are and what you would like to sound like!
