Hi Fellow Guitarist,

Learning to play classical guitar can feel like trying to navigate a maze without a map. With all the intricacies of sheet music, the complexity of the classical technique, and the challenge of making your guitar sing the way you want it to, it’s no wonder you might feel overwhelmed.

Maybe you’ve spent countless hours practicing, only to feel like you’re stuck in the same place. Or perhaps you’ve tried to play a beautiful piece by Tárrega or Bach, only to find it doesn’t sound quite as you imagined.

Believe me, I’ve been there too. But here’s something I’ve learned: nobody is born with the ability to play classical guitar flawlessly. It takes time, practice, and the right guidance.

Classical guitar lessons are crucial if you want to see meaningful improvement. Since 2014, I’ve helped guitarists like you master the classical guitar through personalized one-on-one lessons. Together, we’ve tackled challenges, unlocked hidden potential, and celebrated as students aced auditions, and secured spots in prestigious programs. Some of my former students have even became guitar teachers themselves. There’s nothing like seeing the joy on a student’s face as they master a difficult piece and realize their newfound skills.

You deserve to love the way you play and enjoy the journey of learning. Imagine the satisfaction of seeing your hard work pay off as you play beautiful music with ease and confidence. Imagine the surprised looks on your friends and family’s faces when they hear you play and ask, “Where did you learn to play guitar like THAT?!”

Don’t put your guitar dreams on hold. Schedule a private guitar lesson with me today and let’s start making beautiful music together. I can’t wait to hear you play the music of your dreams! 🎵

Looking forward to our journey together,

Accepted into UGA’s Guitar Program

“In under a year, Jonathan has helped me elevate my technique and musicality to heights I couldn’t of imagined. If you’re interested in developing classical guitar technique, whether it’s to better yourself as a musician, or just to learn fundamentals of an under-appreciated art, Jonathan is the man. Seriously, I can’t believe how much I have developed, I am playing pieces that I never thought I could, and for that I am ever grateful.”

Comfortable With The Basics Within Weeks

“I’m an adult learning to play classical guitar and I could not be happier with Jonathan Richter. After just a few weeks of classical guitar lessons I was playing a beautiful piece by Aguado, which helped me keep my momentum and enthusiasm to continue. Jonathan is very proactive and quickly diagnoses where I’m struggling, giving me steady encouragement and generating custom exercises to help me get over my hurdles.”

From Etudes to Bach in Less Than 3 Months

“I’ve been taking classical guitar lessons from Jonathan for 5 months and am absolutely loving it! Jonathan is a gifted and passionate classical guitar player who brings both patience and enthusiasm to his teaching.

I came back to guitar after decades of playing sporadically and it showed. I lacked confidence in my playing abilities. Jonathan worked with me and within a few lessons, had me diving into the deep end, challenging me with pieces that I never thought I would play. He’s inspired me to actually practice and improve my playing beyond what I thought I was capable of.”
