Welcome to Schwisow Music
If you are interested in private guitar lessons, Joshua Schwisow offer lessons for those in the Parker, Franktown, Castle Rock, and Elizabeth, Colorado area. I also cover some surrounding areas depending on the location. The first lesson is entirely free! Take guitar lessons in the comfort of your own home. I offer competitive rates giving you more for far less than what most guitar instructors charge. For more information and lesson rates send me an email or give me a call.
My personal playing experience includes over 17 years of playing experience and over 7 years of teaching experience in a variety of guitar styles including Classical, Jazz, Blues, Rock, and Christian music. I studied for many years with John McCoy, a noted Classical and Flamenco Guitarist in the Denver area. My performance experience includes a number of different musical contexts including solo guitar, church music, weddings, special events, and blues bands. I have years of experience teaching guitar in one-on-one and group environments.
My goal in teaching guitar is to fit the needs and musical interests of each student I teach. Additionally, my goal is to make sure every student I teach has a solid foundation in the basics of guitar technique, sight-reading, music theory, and ability to play in a group setting. I offer lessons for Classical, Acoustic, and Electric Guitar.
I live with my wife and three daughters in Castle Rock, Colorado.
“Josh is an excellent guitar instructor and is pleasant to do business with. Josh’s rates are fair and his work exceeds expectations. My son who is taking lessons learns easily from Josh and his improvement week to week is apparent. I recommend anyone who wants to learn guitar from a true professional to contact Josh today.” — Greg Ertel
“Josh has been teaching classical guitar to my 11 year old daughter for the past year. We were grateful for his professional manner, prompt start time, and clear expectations for the week’s practice for my daughter. She looked forward to the weekly lessons, and she enjoyed playing in the recital. We are so pleased with her progress and would recommend Josh as a guitar teacher.” — Michelle S.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons from Josh. In just two months he has really honed in on the skills I needed most and is helping me progress beyond “just chords”. He is patient, encouraging, and flexible, which I appreciate with my busy schedule. I have already recommended Josh to a friend who has always wanted to learn how to play the guitar.” — Patty McKernan
