About Damon

I started playing when I was about 10 and never stopped studying music. I studied in college, where I learned a more classical approach. And I'm still learning and studying. As we are all students of life, I am also a student of music, and you never stop learning, there's always room for improvement no matter how good you get. Aside from being a lifelong student/teacher, I've been in quite a few bands and played 100's of gigs. Learning guitar is the first step and playing the music you love is a true joy in itself, but being able to play with other musicians is when it really gets super fun. I start every student off learning very basic music theory, which is crucial for us to communicate with each other, and for you to communicate with other musicians as well.

I started teaching my friends guitar when I was about 15 just so we could jam together, and it was a truly joyful feeling to share what I knew and help them learn riffs and scales, etc. I honestly wasn't a quick learner on guitar and in addition I moved around a lot throughout my middle school and high school years, so I had a variety of different teachers who taught me guitar/music theory from different perspectives. As a result, I was able to condense all the methods of how I was taught into my own unique approach to teaching, which is to make things as simple to understand and fun at the same time.

I teach students of any age or gender, those things don't matter. One thing that does matter is what you, the student, bring to the table. I will do an excellent job on teaching you whatever it is you want to know on guitar and music theory. (Rock is what I grew up with, but I love all styles of guitar and music.) My philosophy is simple, whether you have me or the most famous guitar player in the world teaching you, YOU, the student, need to practice and put in the time (about 30-60 minutes a day). With my teaching and you practicing, you will get to where you want to be quickly and have fun in the process. Please inquire for more details.

When are we going to start? How about right now! Contact me ASAP. I can't wait to get started. See you soon. Damon

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Guitar

I've been teaching for nearly 20 years. I am passionate about teaching guitar and music theory and through my years of experience have found ways to communicate and make it easy for people to understand. I've learned from a variety of great teachers throughout the years which has given me a unique approach to teaching anyone that wants to learn. I start all my guitar students off using guitar tablature to make the learning process as easy as possible, and every one of my students starts off learning basic theory and easy songs so we can communicate musically and have fun in the process.
