There's nothing I love more than giving my students the tools, tips, and tricks they need to succeed. Our lessons are always focused on playing the music that made you pick up the guitar to begin with. When students learn the scales, chords, and techniques used to play the music they've heard their whole life, I get to watch their eyes light up; suddenly, playing their favorite tunes isn't some impossible dream only for the "talented", but a manageable goal with steps and ways to measure concrete progress. I work hard to make these "aha" moments happen for my students each and every week: I simply never get tired of them!
Teague is an exemplary guitar teacher - super down to Earth, flexible on lesson plans but isn't afraid to push you to become a better musician! Very knowledgable about guitar technique and music theory. He was great help on writing and preforming my own music.
My teenagers both take lessons from Teague and have developed a love for the guitar and confidence in their abilities. I am grateful for his teaching style, intuitiveness and professionalism.
I have been taking guitar lessons since January 2021 at DMI. Teague has helped me not only with my guitar chops, but also foundational music theory. Lessons should be followed up at home with consistent practise to cement the learning. Scale, harmony, playing with pick (as opposed to fingers), chord progression, practise sheets, song breakdown, etc. are some of the activities Teague has helped me on. I had some experience playing guitar and knew some theory as well before joining the lessons and I recommend the same for any new students. Looking forward to the day when I'll be sitting alone with the instrument and know exactly what buttons to press. Working on it at the moment and enjoying it.
Teague is a fantastic guitar instructor. He has a deep knowledge of music and he’s very patiently persistent when it comes to technique and form. His lessons are challenging and enjoyable because is teaching style is very comfortable. He teaches what he believes is the best way to attack a chord or handle the guitar, yet he also teaches other ways to accomplish the same result. Highly recommend signing up for lessons with Teague!
The first day we'll talk about what your hopes and goals are, what types of music you like, and how we'll get you playing that music quickly. Lessons are centered around your favorite music from day 1.
I graduated college with a degree in music performance and have been teaching and playing professionally ever since. I have played all types of gigs as a guitartist: rock bands, jazz combos, solo sets, recitals, musical pit orchestras, dinner shows, and many, many more. If it involves guitar, I've probably done it!

I have several new student deals going, so be sure to ask me about them!
I started teaching to make some extra money in college and fell in love with it instantly. Since then I've always maintained a healthy teaching studio in addition to the performance work I do. I get to share exactly what I love about music with others in a personal and ongoing setting. What could be better!
All kinds. Young, old, experienced, new, casual, serious...the list goes on. If you're ready and eager to learn, I'm ready and eager to teach you.
Before covid shut down all live events we had a studio-wide recital. I was blown away by how carefully and thoroughly each of the students prepared, and every performance was out of the park. Even my shyest students got up and played incredibly. We had jazz improv, classical pieces, singer-songwriters, and crazy shredders all perform that night. It was incredible and I simply cannot wait to do it again, once such events are safe to hold.
In addition to sufficient expertise, make sure any teacher you study with designs the lessons with your goals in mind and is always working hard to understand your learning style. If you feel supported, listened to, and truly helped each lesson you've found the right teacher. If not, keep looking.
1.) What do I want to accomplish and how could a private teacher best support me during my journey getting there?
2.) What am I most afraid/anxious about and how could a private teacher help me through these doubts when things get challenging?
3.) What keeps me motivated to keep practicing and how might a private teacher provide that each week?
These are also excellent questions to ask any private instructor you are considering studying with. Pay attention to their answers and see what you think!
