Learn the Songs You Adore with Online Lessons.

Online lessons start by learning to sing and play your favorite music.  Everything you want to learn will be put in a private online folder with PDF's, recordings, and video. Your homework never gets lost, you always know what you're working on, and what you need to do!

I was blown away how at how Tai helped me take that unused guitar and play a song on it so fast! Online lessons were the only way I could have excelled so fast! ”

— Killian Mancera

How it Works:


Try a Lesson, Worry-Free. 

Your first 30 min lesson is free. So you can decide risk-free if Tai is a fit for you!

What Do I Need to Begin Lessons? 

All you need is a computer. After booking, you will be sent a link that connects you with your teacher at the scheduled time with two clicks.

How Expensive are the Lessons? 

Lessons are $50/half hour or $60/45 min $70/hour. View more details here.

Are Online Lessons as Good as In-Person Lessons? 

Although there are some differences, multiple studies on distance learning, including this study from UNC, have shown that students are 36% more focused and perform 22% better when compared to in-person lessons.

Who Do I Teach?   

I specialize in teaching women ages 6+. My forte is to teach you to sing and accompany yourself on your instrument.  

What Will My First Guitar Lesson Contain?  

During our first lesson, I will ask you about your goals. Do you want to lead the next campfire singalong, or learn how to tour? All of this is possible with a specialized approach to lessons.  

Is Meeting Online Hard?  

I use Zoom to teach. I will help you every step of the way to make sure you are set up and ready for your lesson.

How Do I pay for Lessons?  


I’m so grateful for everything Tai taught me that helped turn this dream into a reality.”

Asta Wylie (IMTA Songwriter of the Year)
