Have been taking electric guitar lessons from Meghan for a year – and I am really happy about the progress I’m making! I grew from a newbie with some basic skills into a confident player with deeper understanding of music theory, much better speed and accuracy, and improved sense of rhythm and timing.
Meghan’s lessons are very well structured – you get both theory and practice in bite-sized portions, so each time you make a small step, learn something new, and stay inspired with your progress! She is very patient and makes sure you absorb the material, explains things in detail, works with you on your playing technique, and helps you develop that musical feeling so you can start exploring things on your own.
For every topic Meghan prepares a pdf handout for you to refer to later. This is very helpful, especially as the lessons are tailored to your learning pace and built upon your favorite songs!
We did ear training, studied music scales and built chord progressions, looked into the music notation, created guitar solos and recorded my playing, tried fingerpicking on acoustic guitar, played a bunch of my favorite stuff (mainly blues and metal), and improvised to develop random melodic ideas. At some point I could compose small music pieces on my own – that was absolutely amazing!!!
Many thanks to Meghan, and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to master the guitar!
Meghan’s lessons are very accessible. She is a very kind and patient teacher, who is always super prepared and makes lesson tabs and sheets beforehand. You get to cover the genres and music you want to play. Meghan holds you accountable and you feel like you are making progress every week.
She also runs the Queer Music Jam which allows you to practice your skills and meet other cool musicians in the city.
As an intermediate player Meghan has done an amazing job of filling in gaps I had with my guitar playing. She tailored her lessons for my individual needs and was very flexible whenever I asked to learn specific things. For example, I wanted to improve my improvisational skills and she thought me a system where I’ve now become much better in that area. I can say I’ve gone up a level in terms of my guitar ability thanks to her lessons. Meghan is also very patient, easy to talk to and has a great sense of humour. I cannot recommend Meghan enough!
